Product Highlights

    24.3 MP 35 mm Full Frame Sensor
  • A whole new world of high–quality images are realized through the 24.3 MP effective 35 mm full–frame sensor, a normal sensor range of ISO 100 – 25600, and a sophisticated balance of high resolving power, gradation and low noise. The BIONZ® image processor enables up to 5 fps high–speed continuous shooting and 14–bit RAW image data recording.

Details from Sony

    Bright F2.0 Carl Zeiss® Sonnar T* lens
    Newly developed large–diameter F2.0 Carl Zeiss® Sonnar T* lens delivers refined background defocusing – bokeh, and macro capabilities. A premium multi–layered T* coating also dramatically reduces ghost and flare caused by light reflection.

    World's first fixed lens 35mm camera
    The DSC–RX1 is the world's first fixed lens 35 mm full–frame digital camera which offers an uncompromising design that focuses on an intuitive, user–friendly operation. The camera fits in the palm of a hand and allows users to carry it nearly everywhere to capture any shooting opportunity that arises.

    Full HD 24p video
    Full HD 24p video with manual control and audio input. For creative flexibility while shooting movies and stills, users can enter Program Auto (P), Aperture Priority (A), Shutter Speed Priority (S) or Manual Exposure (M) mode for manual shooting and exposure control. Enjoy clear sound recording and playback via built–in stereo microphone and mono speaker. Additionally, an optional microphone can be plugged into the camera.

    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 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 fast, DSLR–like focusing speeds even in low light.

    Full frame burst shooting
    High speed continuous shooting at up to 5 frames per second (fps) is made possible by the BIONZ® processor and 24 megapixel sensor.

    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.

    Quick Navi – settings at a glance
    Quick Navi enhances direct control of your favorite functions. Pressing the Fn button activates Quick Navi, which allows the user to check camera settings at a glance and promptly change settings without having to search for dedicated menus.

    Memory recall
    MR (memory recall) mode can memorize up to three groups of the user's preferred settings. Settings include zoom magnification, white balance, exposure compensation, shutter speed, drive mode and metering modes. This enables quick switching of settings at the right moment.

    Nine aperture blades
    Nine aperture blades form a nearly perfect circle throughout the normally used aperture range of F2 to F22, resulting in background defocusing that is smooth and genuinely beautiful.

    Expandable with multi interface shoe
    The multi interface shoe allows easy connection with wide–ranging accessories expanding the range of photographic expression. Available accessories include a powerful external flash unit, electronic viewfinder.

    3" Xtra Fine LCD™ Display
    The 3" (1,229k dots) Xtra Fine LCD™ Display makes it easy to scroll through menus and preview live Picture Effects. WhiteMagic™ technology increases visibility in bright daylight. The large display delivers brilliant–quality still images and movies while enabling easy focusing operation.

    Auto HDR mode
    Captures more scene dynamic range than a single exposure can handlea??and more range than photo film. Combines the best highlight detail from one shot, the best mid–tones from a second and the best shadow detail from a third for one incredible shot (up to 6 EV stops), all in a split second. (Recommended for still subjects.)

    Dual–aspect ratio recording for still images
    Capture still images in either 3:2 or 16:9 aspect ratio. This provides the freedom to choose a ratio that matches the scene or the specific shooting purpose.

    >Built in pop up flash
    Enjoy the convenience of flash photography everywhere you go. Guide number is approximately 6*. Choose from Auto, Slow Sync, Rear Sync, Fill–flash and Flash Off modes.

    Capture JPEG files, RAW files, or both
    The DSC–RX1 saves pictures as compact JPEG files and/or ultra–high quality RAW files. RAW files save images prior to de–mosaicing, white balance, sharpness and color enhancement. This retains maximum latitude for enhancing the image on your PC.

    Three focusing modes
    This camera has one Autofocus mode, Single–shot AF (AF). It also has Manual Focus (MF) for manual focusing freedom, and Direct Manual Focus (DMF), that first uses autofocusing to focus on the subject, and then allows fast and easy switching to manual focusing for even more precise adjustment.

    Digital level gauge
    Digital level gauge to allow easier leveling of the camera.

    MF assist and peaking
    Manual focus becomes much easier because peaking highlights the edges that are in focus in your choice of three colors (white, red, or yellow). This is especially helpful during macro or portrait photography where your focus setting can make or break your shot.

    Creative Style settings
    Control how the camera processes your images with 15 finishing styles: Standard, Vivid, Neutral, Clear, Deep, Light, Twilight, Night View, Autumn Leaves, B&W, Sepia, Sunset, Portrait and Landscape. You can even fine–tune contrast, saturation3 , and sharpness to your personal taste.

    Picture Effect mode
    Realize your creative potential with Picture Effect, a fun and simple way to convert ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Effects are Soft Focus, Posterization, Retro Photo, High Contrast Monochrome, Rich–tone Monochrome, Miniature, Soft High–key, Toy Camera, Pop Color, Partial Color, Watercolor Painting, HDR Painting, and Illustration.

    Sweep Panorama™ Mode
    Capture expansive landscapes automatically. Press the shutter, sweep vertically or horizontally. The camera does the rest, continuously shooting images and stitching them together.

    Face Detection/ Registration technology
    The camera can automatically detect and register up to eight individual faces and adjust focus, exposure, white balance and flash to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends. Can prioritize children or adults.

    Auto portrait framing
    Simply photograph a person and Auto Portrait Framing will save an additional, optimally framed image in port
