SonySony CyberShot RX1 full-frame camera : The extraordinary new Sony CyberShot DSC-RX1 digital camera packs an advanced 35mm full-frame 24.3 MP Exmor CMOS sensor and exceptionally Carl Zeiss T* 35mm f/2.0 fixed lens into a highly portable, lightweight camera body. The new Sony CyberShot DSC-RX1 is truly ‘one of a kind’, offering a unique combination of size and performance that’s never before been realized in the world of digital cameras. With its highly advanced sensor and fast 35mm f/2.0 lens packed into a small, portable camera body, professionals, enthusiasts and advanced hobbyists can experience the world of full-frame imaging in new and different ways than they ever thought possible.

Measuring approximately 4.5 inches wide by 3 inches tall and weighing just over a pound, the new Sony DSC-RX1 is significantly smaller and lighter than any full-frame digital SLR yet sacrifices nothing in terms of image quality, HD video quality or manual control. The new camera’s unified lens and body design allows performance that few interchangeable lenses can match. The Carl Zeiss lens integrated in the Sony CyberShot DSC-RX1 not only delivers spectacular image quality all the way to the edges of each frame, it incorporates a near-silent in-lens shutter and is far more compact than comparable lenses of interchangeable design. The new Sony DSC-RX1 camera also features full manual control options and an intuitive user interface, making it easy for photographers to adjust all settings quickly and easily.

24.3 megapixel Sony DSC-RX1 camera
The 35mm full-frame sensor inside the Sony CyberShot RX1 camera more than doubles the area of APS-C sensors commonly found in much bulkier digital SLR cameras, allowing it to take in significantly more light while capturing content. With an effective resolution of 24.3 megapixels, it’s capable of resolving the finest image details and most subtle textures for rich color reproduction and an impressively broad dynamic range. The large sensor size also boosts the camera’s sensitivity range to a generous ISO 100 - 25600, with the option to shoot as low as ISO 50 in expanded sensitivity mode. Similarly, ISO settings as high as 102400 can be achieved using Multi Frame Noise Reduction. This allows the Sony CyberShot DSC-RX1 to capture natural, low noise handheld images in near-dark conditions without needing flash.

The fast, bright Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 35mm lens is a versatile choice for portraits, street photography and everyday shooting. This premium lens features newly designed optics including an Advanced Aspherical (AA) glass element, which contributes to the camera’s extremely compact dimensions without sacrificing optical performance. The lens’ wide F2 maximum, 9-bladed circular aperture enable beautiful background defocus (‘bokeh’) effects to rival or exceed professional-class DSLR camera lenses. Additionally, the Sony CyberShot RX1 lens from Carl Zeiss features a macro switching ring on the lens barrel which instantly shortens the minimum focusing distance to approximately 20cm (from image plane), allowing the DSC-RX1 camera to capture small, close-up subjects with exquisite detail.
