Sony Cyber-shot RX1 Review

Digitaltrends
18 June 2013
  • Conclusion: The more we mull it over, “suiting your vision” is an apt description for the RX1. This Cyber-shot is a wonderful photography tool and if you can imagine the shot, the camera will deliver it – within reason, of course.
  • Pros: Full-frame, 24.3-megapixel sensor, Wonderful stills, superior videos, Terrific f/2.0 35mm lens, Excellent 3-inch 1,229K LCD
  • Cons: Battery life somewhat limited; Sony should supply an in-wall charger, LCD should tilt and be touch-capable, Poor placement of red-dot movie button

Sony RX1 Review

What Digital Camera
29 November 2012
  • Summary: The Sony RX1 is, for many reasons, a remarkable camera, and one which has been very difficult to score on account of it not having any obvious immediate rivals. While it’s certainly true that it’s expensive, it’d be difficult to find a full-frame DSLR and optic of equivalent performance for less.
  • Pros: Sharp, detailed and lifelike images, solid build quality, effective distortion correction option, excellent high-ISO performance, brilliant corner and edge sharpness (once stopped down), superb (though not faultless) AWB performance, prompt write times, excellent LCD performance
  • Cons: AF can hunt and misfocus, some lens distortion, battery life, aliasing effects (jaggies) with strongly defined details, ease with which exposure compensation dial may be turned accidentally

Sony RX1

Imaging Resource
12 September 2012
  • Conclusion: The Sony RX1 is a remarkable camera in almost every respect, from the full-frame sensor hiding inside its incredibly compact body, through its excellent lens, great feature set, and superb image quality.
  • Pros: Smallest full-frame camera on the market, by a wide margin, Fantastic image quality, Excellent, fast f/2 prime lens, Images are sharp corner to corner, even wide open, f/2 with full-frame sensor gives incredibly shallow depth of field, 9-bladed diaphragm, Exceptionally flexible user interface, su...
  • Cons: Fixed, single focal length lens, Slight tendency to underexpose, Produces unattractive bokeh when the subject is close to the lens, Focus can be slow under dim lighting, Subtle magenta/cyan tint across frame when shading compensation enabled in both JPEG and RAW files, Significant corner shading ...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: Taking price out of the equation, one cannot fail to be impressed with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1. Fitting a full-frame sensor in such a small camera is an achievement, but making it easy to handle and giving it such a high-quality finish is even more of a feat.

  • Summary: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 is a compact camera like no other, delivering full-frame 35mm image quality paired with a fantastic lens in a compact and highly customisable body. No camera is perfect - the auto-focusing is a little sluggish, the cost of the optional accessories is eye-watering,...

CHIP Online
17 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Die RX1 zeigt sich im Test als eine faszinierende, technisch ausgereifte und sehr gut verarbeitete Kamera für gut betuchte Foto-Enthusiasten.

  • Pros: Hervorragende Bildqualität, Hochwertige Verarbeitung, Vollformatsensor, Schnell
  • Cons: Kurze Akku-Laufzeit, Extrem teuer

6 March 2013
  • Conclusion: In der Praxis hinterlässt die Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 bis auf das Handling einen sehr guten Eindruck. Wie aber schneidet Sie bei den Laborergebnissen ab? Bei der Bildqualität darf man durch die Kombination eines Kleinbild-Sensor und eines lichtstarken Objektivs mit einer Offenblende von F2 viel...
  • Pros: Exzellente Bildqualität und Detailwiedergabe bis ISO 1.600, Sehr gute Bildqualität und Detailwiedergabe bei ISO 3.200 und ISO 6.400, Gute Bildqualität selbst bei ISO 12.800, Sehr hochwertiges und edles Kameragehäuse aus Metall, Sehr kompaktes Kameragehäuse mit Kleinbildsensor (!!!), Lichtstarkes ...
  • Cons: Die Festbrennweite beschränkt die Motivwahl (kein optisches Zoom), Die Kamera liegt mangels Handgriff nur relativ schlecht in der Hand (Tragegurt verwenden!), Der Autofokus ist teilweise sehr langsam, Kein optischer Bildstabilisator im Fotomodus vorhanden (im Videomodus immerhin digital), Kein dr...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1

  • Conclusion: Безусловно, Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 получилась камерой не для всех. И дело здесь, как ни странно, даже не в цене. Кому RX1 действительно нужен, тот денег на покупку найдет. Дело в специфике самой модели. Не каждому по душе придется 35-мм фикс-объектив.
  • Pros: малые размеры;, высокое качество материалов и сборки;, высокая светосила объектива;, высочайшая резкость объектива;, мягкое и приятное размытие заднего плана в большинстве сюжетов;, отличная цветопередача;, высокое качество изображения до ISO 3200 включительно;, высокая скорость серийной съемки;,...
  • Cons: большое время включения;, отсутствие разъема для электронного пульта;, сравнительно небольшой буфер;, недостаточно быстрый автофокус;, неудобная реализация пикинга при ручной фокусировке;, невозможность прямого выбора точки фокусировки;, ограничение минимальной выдержки на открытой диафрагме до 1...
