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.
Full frame. Palm size.
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 RX1 and RX1R.
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.
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.
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.
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.)
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.
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.
