Sony RX1

Sony RX1 and RX1R Introduction

The Sony Cybershot DSC- RX1R produces 24-megapixel (6000 X 4000) images images from a full frame sensor.

The Sony RX1R was released about a year after the Sony RX1. The RX1R model is a variant having no anti-aliasing filter, which allows higher micro contrast for very fine details. It apparently also has a tweaked and modified sensor and electronics (Sony is not entirely clear on the changes). See the review of the Sony RX1R.

The RX1 is astonishingly compact for a full-frame, in a breakthrough way as of late 2012; it absolutely resets the bar for full-frame size. The next closest thing is a Leica M240. No assumption should be made that the Leica alternative is better on the image quality front; certainly the Sony RX1R is a far faster and more enjoyable and more reliable camera to shoot, with a vastly lower failure rate than the Leica, as extensive field experience proved.
