About this item

The bigger the imager, the better the image. That's why the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-R1 incorporates an APS-class image sensor more than 12 times the size of the typical sensor. You'll get high sensitivity, low noise and a phenomenal 10.3 Megapixels of resolution. This is the world's first camera to combine an APS-class sensor with Live Preview of the scene, so you can compose your shot with full framing, exposure and white balance accuracy.

The DSC-R1 incorporates a pro-quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 5X Optical zoom lens with T* (T-star) coatings. With its 24mm wide end (35mm equivalent) you can shoot wide angles that typical digital cameras just can't match, while maintaining plenty of telephoto reach. The Free-Angle 2.0" LCD monitor 90 lets you shoot from waist height, over your head or even floor level.

Adjust your exposure with 16-step aperture and 49-step shutter speed.. Get more punch from your pictures with Sony's Advanced Gradation Control System. Achieve more expressive color with Sony's Vivid RGB mode. And take your pictures to a new level of professionalism with Sony's new Image Data Converter SR software for RAW image conversion.

Adorama Expert advice

Key Features

  • APS-class image sensor: Measuring 21.5 x 14.4 mm, the image sensor of the DSC-R1 is more than 12X the size of the typical digital camera sensor! You get higher sensitivity, lower noise and amazing resolution of 10.3 megapixels.
  • 10.3 Megapixel CMOS image sensor: Sony's first digital camera with a Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) image sensor, the DSC-R1 delivers fabulous detail, perfect for giant, poster-sized prints, professional 4-color offset printing and other advanced applications.
  • Full-Time Live Preview: Pros count on being able to see what the camera sees. Live Preview in the electronic viewfinder and LCD monitor shows 100% framing accuracy for total confidence. You can preview exposure and depth of focus so you know what you're getting before you take the shot!
  • Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 5X Optical Zoom Lens: The 5X Optical Zoom lens covers an incredible range from an ultra-wide 24mm to 120mm (35mm equivalent). Exclusive Zeiss T* (T-star) coatings reduce internal reflections, suppress lens "flare" and improve image contrast.
  • Remarkably Wide 24mm Angle (35mm Equivalent): Captures scenic and group photos beyond the reach of most D-SLR zoom lenses.
  • Three Color Modes and RAW Capture: Choose standard sRGB for accuracy, Vivid sRGB to emulate reversal film, or AdobeRGB for advanced applications. RAW mode brings the latent image into the digitaldarkroom. RAW files must be converted with Sony's Image Data Converter SR software.
  • Advanced Gradation Control System (AGCS): Enhances dynamic range, avoids crushed shadow detail and clipped highlights.
  • Eye-Level Through-the-Lens Viewfinder: SLR-style shooting gives you a more stable shooting platform, with elbows tuckedin to reduce camera shake.
  • Free-Angle 2.0" LCD Monitor: In addition to the eye-level finder, the DSC-R1 also has a built-in 2.0 LCD monitor that turns and twists through a wide range. So you can hold the camera overhead, position it at your waist, even lower it to the floor to get your shot.
  • Advanced Viewfinder/Monitor Displays: Choose grid lines, zebra stripes and histogram. Enjoy full-time exposure indication of aperture, shutter speed and Exposure Value over/under.
  • Advanced Creative Control: Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Program shift, EV compensation and full manual exposure control allow you to adjust quickly for a wide range of shootingsituations. Capture fast action, control depth of field and more.
  • Versatile Manual Exposure: Adjust the aperture from F2.8-16. Set the shutter from 30 seconds to 1/2000 second, or choose Bulb exposure for up to 3 minutes! Adjust ISO from 160 to 3200. Choose Auto White Balance then fine-tune color temperature by hand.
  • Dual Media Capability: If you've already invested in high-capacity flash memory cards, the DSC-R1 is the camera for you. It accepts Memory Stick PRO media, Compact Flash Type 1/IImedia,1 and optional Microdrive media.
