More Information and Detailed Specifications

Now photographers can explore the creative possibilities of full-frame imaging with a compact digital camera that fits perfectly in your hand. The new Cyber-shot™ DSC-RX1R from Sony satisfies the desires of keen photographers.

With a weight of only 482 grams (with battery and memory card), the camera offers one 35mm full frame image sensor in a camera body perfectly proportioned for travel and street photography as well as portraits and everyday shooting. Much smaller and lighter than any full frame DSLR, the Cyber-shot™ RX1R now has superior image quality previously dominated by professional DSLR cameras. This brings out the full potential and the lens delivers outstanding image quality across the frame.

Many options for manual control are supplemented by intuitive handling that make it easier for photographers to realize their creative visions without having to compensate for portability and comfort. For the first time in digital compact cameras the RX1 1:35 mm full-frame Exmor CMOS image sensor, with a resolution of 24.3 megapixels has more than double the size compared to the APS-C image sensor found in large DSLR cameras.

Along with the large image sensor, the camera offers a Carl Zeiss Sonnar T lens with fixed focal length of 35mm - a good option for portraits, street photography and everyday shooting. Data from the sensor is handled by the BIONZ processor that ensures up to 5 frames per second in full resolution. Despite the camera's ultra-compact format, it offers photographers unlimited opportunities with a full range of manual settings.

In addition to flawless stills, the RX1 captures HD video with little noise. Shooting possibilities for still images and video are expanded further with the camera's Multi Interface Shoe, which is compatible with a growing range of accessories. A powerful flash, electronic viewfinder, optical viewfinder, a detachable LCD screen, rain cover, lens hood, and a thumb grip ensures comfortable handling.
