Sony Cyber-shot DSC-R1

CNET
5 September 2006
  • Summary: If you don't anticipate a need for multiple lenses--which many users won't, given the crisp 24mm-to-120mm-equivalent lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.8--the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-R1 makes a worthy competitor to the dSLRs in its price range.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality; an impressively flexible LCD screen that's viewable from many angles; a sharp Zeiss lens; effective white-balancing features; a wide range of ISO sensitivity; quick performance.
  • Cons: With most heavy components on the left side, the chunky body is somewhat off-balance; can't shoot raw in burst mode; the in-camera review function magnifies to only 5X.

Camera Labs

  • Summary: In use the R1 certainly feels like it's delivering the goods, starting quickly and feeling responsive under general conditions. The build quality and ergonomics are of a very high standard and the camera feels comfortable to hold.
  • Pros: Excellent quality lens with useful range, Large sensor for all-in-one body, High resolution beats 6 and 8 Mpixel D-SLRs, Flexible 2in display
  • Cons: Noise not as low as we hoped above 400 ISO, Harder to manually focus than D-SLRs, Tiny three frame buffer, No movie mode

  • Summary: If you don't need to swap lenses, precisely focus manually or shoot more than three frames at a time, the DSCR1 is a better bet than a budget digital SLR.
  • Pros: Excellent zoom lens, Quiet operation
  • Cons: Manual focusing is difficult, three frame buffer is small

  • Summary: The R1 offers an excellent zoom range, good age quality and excellent photographic control. The images are good without being stunning but colours are vivid, true and sharp. The Sony R1 is technically fascinating and there is a lot to try out and talk about.
