SonySony Cybershot DSC R1 digital camera review : The fact that Sony introduced the Cybershot DSC R1 should without a doubt be noted as both surprising and remarkable. Not only was a new Cybershot digital camera about to see the light of day, it is a camera that comes equipped with an entirely new high resolution image sensor of no less than 10+ Megapixels, which is certainly surprising. With the introduction of the Sony Cybershot DSC-R1, Sony gives a renewed sign of life, especially in the high segment where they had seemed somewhat absent recently. Still, behind the scenes Sony have been keeping more than busy to prepare themselves for the increasingly developing digital reflex camera market.

The Sony R1 is equipped with a completely newly developed Sony CMOS image sensor offering a resolution of 10.3 Megapixels. The new CMOS image sensor (effective 21.5mm x 14.4mm) is uniquely designed to improve dynamic range, sensitivity, and signal-to-noise ratio. The large Sony CMOS sensor is able to capture more light, reducing noise levels, allowing higher shutter speeds, and therefore reducing the effects of handshake for clearer and true to life pictures.

The dedicated 24 - 120mm (35mm) wide-angle zoom lens of the Sony Cybershot R1 is integrated in the body of the camera. With its F2.8-4.8 aperture, the camera is designed to exacting specifications for optimum performance, reduced internal reflections and fast, quality photography, even at low light levels. Images taken by the Cyber-shot R1 camera are razor-sharp with excellent colour and contrast rendition. The unique ‘short back focus design’ of the Sony Cybershot DSC R1 also allows the last lens to be positioned immediately in front of the CMOS sensor, contributing to a reduction in chromatic aberration. On the R1 camera this distance has been reduced to an astonishing 2.1mm.

Sony Cybershot DSC R1 review
It is not without reason that Sony have engaged in co-operation with Konica Minolta to strengthen their position for a digital reflex camera under the name of Sony! Rumour has it that the summer of 2006 will be the time for the digital Sony reflex camera. For many years now, Sony have been enjoying a high ranking in the top 5 list of the most popular and bestselling camera brands. With the introduction of the Sony R1, they strengthen their position and, for now, apply sufficient counter-pressure to the strongly increasing uprising of digital reflex cameras. The Sony Cybershot R1 has most impressive specifications and will for many be an appealing alternative to the digital reflex camera. We have been in the position to test just how the Sony Cybershot R1 holds itself in practice. Our results can be read in the following Sony Cybershot DSC-R1 review.
