Our impressions of the image quality are as positive as those about using the camera - the pictures are sharp, colorful and have the pleasant softness that a fast lens can give on a full frame camera.

Conclusion

The RX1 is a small camera capable of astonishing image quality. Its handling marries classic camera ergonomics with a couple of cyber-shot quirks but it's still a lovely camera to shoot with. If a fixed 35mm lens will fulfill any of your shooting requirements, there's nothing to touch the RX1.

Reasons to buy

  • Excellent image quality, high ISO performance in both JPEG and Raw
  • Dedicated aperture and exposure compensation controls
  • Exceptional build-quality - solid feeling without being too heavy
  • Good level of customization to tune camera to your needs

Things to consider

  • Autofocus not fast enough for moving subjects
  • No built-in viewfinder (and accessory options rather expensive)
  • Multiple button presses required to move AF point
  • Disappointing video quality

Suggested for

The best image quality of any carry-able camera.

Not suggested for

Fast action or anyone looking for flexibility. Video shooters.

Product Description

Discover astonishing picture clarity and fine-tuned performance without the optical low-pass filter (OLPF). In a land where detail is king, we've completely maxed out image sharpness by removing the OLPF. What's left is a full-frame, 24.3-megapixel marvel that captures amazing detail resolution-and fits right in your pocket.

From the Manufacturer


Sony make . believe




Sony’s passion for quality and compactness culminates in the world’s first 35mm full-frame camera with bright lens and palm-sized dimensions. The DSC-RX1R leaps far beyond other compact cameras to deliver emotionally charged photographs of truly extraordinary quality wherever you go. Make your dreams come true with the RX1R.
DSC-RX1R

DSC-RX1R: Ultimate resolution

The DSC-RX1R is a special edition of the RX1 for photographers who want to take full advantage of the sensor’s capabilities. The optical low-pass (anti-aliasing) filter has been removed from the RX1R, allowing the full resolution of the sensor to be achieved without compromise. This results in resolution and sharpness when image
details matter.


Technology


Full frame burst shooting

When subjects are moving quickly, you can capture the decisive moment by shooting continuously at 5 frames per second — while maintaining maximum image quality at full 24.3 effective megapixel (approx.) resolution made possible by the BIONZ® image processor.

Amazing Low-light performance

Experience incredible low-light shooting without a flash. The camera captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six, it creates a single image with a reduction in noise equivalent to two additional steps of ISO sensitivity. Sensitivity selectable up to ISO 25600. (Recommended for still subjects.)

High speed Auto Focus

Focus fast as with high speed AF. To improve focusing speed and sensitivity, the Exmor® CMOS sensor uses its rapid throughput to deliver high-quality image signals to the camera’s BIONZ® processor, which provides intelligent response data to a new high speed actuator motor in the lens. The result is DSLR-like focusing speeds even in low light.


Additional Features


New 35mm full-frame 24.3-megapixel Exmor™ CMOS sensor*

Sony’s high-quality 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor captures every detail of your scene with remarkable accuracy. Its 24.3 MP resolution (approx.) is ideal for gallery-quality stunning large-format prints. Razor-sharp alignment of the sensor and optical components brings out the full potential of the lens to the very edges of your photos.

Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 35mm F2 fixed focal length lens

Carl Zeiss lens expertise meets Sony optical precision in a sophisticated large-aperture lens offering remarkable brightness reminiscent of the sun. The design of this lens includes a slim advanced aspherical (AA) lens element of micro precision that delivers stunning image sharpness and brightness while contributing to a short lens barrel.

High-fidelity BIONZ™ image processing engine

From vivid colors to smooth skin tones, every nuance of your scene is reproduced throughout an extremely wide dynamic range with BIONZ image processing engine. Even processor-intensive tasks are handled with speed and precision, including 5 fps continuous shooting at full 24.3 effective megapixel resolution, 14-bit RAW and high ISO shooting.

Full HD 24p video and stereo input

Create movies of amazing clarity at Full HD resolution with manual control and stereo recording. Movies can be recorded at 60i for super smooth playback or 24p for a cinematic look. You can also use P/A/S/M modes to expand your moviemaking creativity. The DSC-RX1R Multi-interface shoe has been upgraded to record stereo sound when using the optional ECM-XYST1M external microphone.

Full frame burst shooting

When subjects are moving quickly, you can capture the decisive moment by shooting continuously at 5 frames per second — while maintaining maximum image quality at full 24.3 effective megapixel (approx.) resolution made possible by the BIONZ® image processor.

Three control lens rings

Full manual operation is intuitive on the RX1. Users can keep their eyes on the subject and concentrate on the composition while comfortably adjusting the dedicated aperture, focusing, and macro switching rings.

Conveniently placed dials

Quick access to conveniently placed exposure compensation and focus mode dials.

TRILUMINOS Color

The DSC-RX1R support Sony’s proprietary TRILUMINOS Color technology, allowing you to experience photos and movies in rich, natural colors on any TV equipped with a TRILUMINOS Display. The expanded color gamut immerses you in those unforgettably colorful moments, from the complex shades in a shimmering blue sky to the delicate skin in a baby’s face.

Expressive Full HD movie recording

As when capturing photographs, you can take full advantage of the bright lens and sensitive 35mm full-frame sensor to create movies of breathtaking quality in various lighting. Movies are recorded at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixel) in the AVCHD Ver. 2.0 progressive format, and movies can be recorded at 60i or 60p for super smooth playback or 24p for a cinematic look, or other frame rates for other effects. Full-time continuous AF ensures clear results even when capturing fast-moving subjects. Moreover, Creative Style settings and Picture Effect expand your moviemaking creativity while P/A/S/M modes enable manual exposure control.

Customizable buttons personalize operation

For the ultimate in user-friendly operation, you can easily reassign five buttons to activate other functions you frequently use. These buttons (Custom, AEL and Left/Right/Down) can be reassigned to activate any of the following functions: Drive mode, Flash mode, Autofocus Area, Face Detection, Smile Shutter, Auto Portrait Framing, Soft Skin Effect, ISO, Metering mode, Flash Compensation, White Balance, DRO, Auto HDR, Creative Style, Picture Effect, Image Size, Quality, Registration, AEL hold*, Spot AEL hold*, AEL toggle, Spot AEL toggle, AF/MF Control Hold*, AF/MF Control Toggle, Smart Tele-converter, Zoom, Focus Magnifier, Aspect Ratio, Monitor Mute and Not set.
* Cannot be assigned to left, right and down buttons.


Bright high-resolution display

The 3.0” (1,229k-dot) Xtra Fine LCD™ enhances shooting ease by displaying scenes with impressive brightness and accuracy. Brightness is boosted by the white pixels of WhiteMagic™ technology, while blacks are displayed blacker thanks to various Sony technologies including an AR (anti-reflection) coating on the LCD surface and a layer of resin between the LCD and reinforced glass that together suppress light reflection even when shooting outdoors. An illumination intensity sensor also optimally adjusts brightness depending on your shooting environment.

Quick Navi simplifies navigation

Easier to navigate than conventional menus, Quick Navi lets you confirm current camera settings at a glance and promptly change settings with the cross keys and control dial/wheel. User-friendly icons further contribute to easy operation that doesn’t require looking into menus — a capability that especially comes in handy when using the optional viewfinder.

Memory Recall (MR) memorizes combined settings

Whenever you find a perfect combination of camera settings for a certain type of shooting situation, you can save it in memory by using the Memory Recall mode. Should a similar situation arise, you can immediately activate the saved combination via dial. This mode can memorize up to three groups of settings (including exposure modes, shutter speed, Drive mode, ISO, White Balance, Metering modes, etc.).

Grid lines support balanced compositions

You can display grid lines on the LCD to support more accurate horizontal and vertical alignment of the camera with walls, streets and other elements in your scene. There are three styles to choose from (Rule of 3rds Grid Line, Square Grid Line, and Diagonal + Square Grid Line). For extra assistance, the Dual-axis Digital Level Gauge can be used to check for camera roll and pitch.

Finer focusing via MF Assist and Peaking functions

During manual focusing, use MF Assist to enlarge the displayed image up to 11.7x (approx.) and more clearly see the results of your finest focusing adjustments. A Peaking function can also be activated to enable focusing confirmation at a glance by colorizing the most sharply focused areas.

More natural gradations through D-range Optimizer (DRO)

In difficult lighting conditions such as backlit scenes, DRO analyses and corrects your image in real time to achieve smoother, more natural gradations with more detail in the highlights and shadows that more closely match what you see with your naked eye. You can choose the amount of correction up to 5 steps and even apply DRO during continuous shooting to achieve better results during sports photography.
Note: The effects of DRO vary depending on the scene and conditions.


White balance versatility for desired color tones

Auto White Balance (AWB) produces more natural colors by compensating for the type of lighting in your scene. The RX1R also provides a full range of white balance presets (Daylight, Incandescent, Fluorescent, etc.) a Color Temperature & Color Filter function, and Custom white balance adjustment options. You can even intuitively adjust white balance on a chart — in the amber-blue and green-magenta directions — during real-time monitoring of your scene* to achieve desired colors.
* When a flash is used, the color tone can be adjusted after the image is shot.


Image Data Converter Ver. 4.2 RAW image development software

This powerful PC software provides advanced features for developing, editing and managing your 14-bit RAW (Sony ARW format) images. For example, you can expertly adjust exposure, white balance, tonal curves and more to match your creative intentions; convert the color space; save images in the JPEG, 16-bit TIFF and other formats; create thumbnail portfolios with image ratings; or apply Creative Style settings. The software can be downloaded for free from the Internet.

Style Name: DSC-RX1R/BConfiguration: Base Verified Purchase
If you are reading this review then you probably already know about the RX1r, so no need to give all the details because you can simply read that in the description. What I will be putting here would be my thoughts of the product in terms of performance, ergonomics, and ease of use.

To start off, I have not used the RX1 before so it's really hard for me to have any objective findings to differentiate this from the previous model. Comparing to my D800, this little beast really packs a punch. ISO 3200 still produces relatively clean images. ISO 6400 show noticeable grain but can easily be remedied with post processing. And this will be obvious if you're pixel peeping. However if you only need a regular size print or plan to upload to FB, then post processing will take care of the excess noise. I honestly have not been able to find the need to push beyond ISO 6400 yet so I may need to update this review in the future.

The amount of detail from every shot is just insane. I previously used a Fuji X100s and was impressed with that but the details produced by the RX1r is even more impressive. The 24 MP full frame sensor without the AA filter really makes a difference. My D800 produces tons of details but that's expected because of the 36 MP sensor. So considering that this is 12 MP less, the amount of detail with every shot is still worth mentioning.

Also, the reviews about the camera hunting in low light is noticeable, but comparing that to the X100s, I feel that this camera is faster. I have not had issues regarding misfocus so far, and that's in my dimly lit room. It's just slow when there is minimal light source but I found that it was still able to lock on the subject. With a generous light source it will lock on fast.

Style Name: DSC-RX1R/BConfiguration: Base Verified Purchase
I've read all the reviews, and my experience was very similar.

Pros:
• Excellent image quality. I feel confident shooting in low light, without using the flash.
• Great metal build. It's not heavy, but it feels sturdy in your hands.
• Ninja quiet. I can shoot in a library and no one would hear the camera.

Cons:
• Autofocus is slow, especially in low light. This is not an action camera.
• Writing RAW files to the SD card is a little slow. I am using a PNY 64GB SDXC UHS-1 90MB/sec card. Basically, after taking a picture, you have to wait 1.5 seconds before you can review it. I know it sounds nit-picky, but I have a habit of immediately pressing the Review button after taking a shot.
• Explaining to my wife why I spent thousands of dollars on a camera.

Style Name: DSC-RX1R/BConfiguration: Base
I will briefly touch on what I find to be this camera's strong points as compared to my Nikon full frame:
Terrific low light sensitivity. Yes, this camera is slow to focus in low light, but once it locks, you get a very useable image, even in very dim light. The digital noise with this camera is somehow more like film grain than the usual digital noise.
Images looks terrific regardless of aperture. If you want confirmation, do a search on Flickr for "Sony RX1".
Very customizable, with three memory banks for your preferred settings.
It is a lot lighter that a DSLR and lens, so great for travel.
I think the color rendition, both in JPEG or RAW, is just terrific. Some disagree, but I disagree with them.
Bokeh is also nice for a wide/normal lens.
Cons:
Short battery life. You definitely need at least three to be ready for a day's shooting. Fortunately, they can be purchased on the secondary market for a reasonable price along with the wall charger that you should have received from Sony to begin with.
Fixed focal length makes shooting sports or action out of the question. This is a travel/landscape/informal portrait type of camera, which works for me. I can always bring out my DSLR and 70-300mm when I need that.
I have the EVF and it helps when you are in very bright light that obscures the LCD, but otherwise I prefer the LCD.
I know a lot of folks extoll the virtues of manual focus but I generally don't fool with it. I just compose-focus and fire away.
I have never used its video functions. I suppose they might be useful if you see Sasquatch but I am not a video guy.
Finally, note that the flash is not "bounceable", unlike the RX100, where the little flash can be manually tilted to get a bounce effect. Sony, what were you thinking?

Style Name: DSC-RX1R/BConfiguration: Base Verified Purchase
This is an enthusiastic review. This camera is fabulous. I bought it to replace my point and shoot (that I had to give to my daughter, to take picture of a new granddaughter). Good fortune all around. The build of this camera is somehow both solid as a rock and jewel like. I usually shoot with large DSLR. But in a recent urban experience it was not going to be possible to lug a D4 and tripod around. This fits in a jacket pocket. It is unobtrusive. The perfect stealth camera. Nobody suspects you are a pro. (Ignore that straight line please). The ergonomics took very little to get used to. The image quality is sensational. It is equal to my D3X. I have printed 16x20 with it and no one can tell which camera I shot with. I'm sure it will hold to 20x30. Being able to directly manipulate aperture and exposure compensation without going to a menu beats any point and shoot I've tried.

Drawbacks: Well, it is a fixed lens camera. But I knew that when I bought it. It was still easier to shoot than my previous zoom compact camera.

It is bigger than a shirt pocket point and shoot. It won't fit in a shirt pocket. So there. Fits in a sport coat pocket very well.

I'm not used to the lack of viewfinder. It can be hard to compose in bright sunlight. I'm so enthused by this little jewel that I have ordered the viewfinder.

No battery charger. You plug the camera into a wall adaptor USB port to charge it. Maybe that is an advantage but it scares me to plug a camera into the wall. I'm using the optional out of body charger.

Unknown: I don't know the real life battery life yet. I've shoot 163 flash photos in sequence with no difficulty but not close to running out the battery.

Conclusion: Don't leave home without it. This item will always be in my pocket.
