The Sony RX1 is compact, point and shoot camera that features a 35mm full-frame sensor. This 24.3MP sensor, also found in the Sony A99 and Sony NEX-VG900, provides extremely high image quality with stellar low light performance. While its fixed Carl Zeiss 35mm f/2 Sonnar lens is non-removable, it’s a very popular focal length that can be used in just about any shooting situation. The fast f/2 aperture allows great background separation, as well as flexibility to shoot in low light. It offers quick and extremely accurate autofocus performance and includes Sony’s great focus peaking for truly simple manual focusing.
While it’s more commonly thought of as a stills camera, the RX1 also offers great video performance. It records full HD video at up to 60p, with a selectable 24p mode as well. Video files are recorded in AVCHD 2.0 format, with a built-in stereo mic for quick and easy use. It does also feature a 3.5mm input for connecting an external mic for improved audio performance. For those who demand the highest quality possible, the RX1 also supports clean HDMI out to an external video recorder of your choice.
At first glance, the RX1 looks quite similar to it’s baby brother the Sony RX100. It has a very similar layout and controls, and the menu is pretty much the same, making the RX1 quite user friendly. It has three dedicated rings on the lens that control focus, aperture, and macro mode for quick adjustment while shooting, and the Quick Navi menu enables more intense setting adjustment. For those settings you need on the fly, there are five programmable buttons for instant access. Like many recent Sony cameras, it has Auto HDR, Sweep Panorama and Multi Frame NR modes for advanced in-camera effects. There’s also several Creative Styles and Picture Effects for even more creative shooting.
The RX1 has Sony’s multi-interface hotshoe that allows the use of an external flash like the Sony HVL-F60M. While the large 3.0" rear LCD is very good and works well for image composition and review, many people many prefer the optional FDA-EV1MK Electronic Viewfinder (not included) for improved shooting. The RX1 accepts SDHC / XC memory cards for recording it’s high quality JPEG / RAW image files, and the included NP-BX1 rechargeable lithium battery is rated for roughly 330 shots per charge.
