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. At this price, the RX1 is clearly for a very affluent shutterbug and perhaps our biggest complaint is the fact it’s so darn expensive. Yet Lamborghinis will always cost more than BMWs, and people will always want the best.
  • 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
11 December 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.

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. Its fixed prime lens means you have to "zoom" with your feet, but it's a great focal length for street photography, and the camera's 24-megapixel sensor means digital zoom produces images with enough resolution to make good-looking prints at reasonable sizes...
  • 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, superb handling, Manual aperture ring, Outstanding, solid build quality, Broad range of white balance settings, including three custom options, and manual tweaking for all WB mo...

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. Image quality is as we would expect from a full-frame, 24-million-pixel sensor, although it doesn't quite match the quality of the Nikon D600.

Test: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 (Luxus-Digitalkamera)

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. Der Vollformatsensor und die hochwertige, lichtstarke Zeiss-Optik führen zu einer im Kompaktkamera-Bereich bislang unerreichten Bildqualität. Die Exklusivität hat aber auch ihren Preis: Rund 3.000 Euro für eine Kompaktkameras sind ein enorm stolzer Preis.
  • Pros: Hervorragende Bildqualität, Hochwertige Verarbeitung, Vollformatsensor, Schnell
  • Cons: Kurze Akku-Laufzeit, Extrem teuer

Cyber-shot DSC-RX1

Das Digitalkamera-Magazin
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 erwarten. Diese Erwartungen werden von der Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 dabei vollständig erfüllt. Die Kamera besitzt einen Sensorempfindlichkeitsbereich von ISO 50 bis ISO 25.600.
  • 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 Objektiv (F2,0) mit einer sehr guten Abbildungsleistung, Mit 35mm relativ variabel einsetzbare Festbrennweite, Hochauflösendes 3,0 Zoll großes Display (1.229.000 Subpixel), Ak...
  • 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 dreh- und schwenkbares Display vorhanden, 1/4.000 Sekunde nur bei Blende F5,6 oder kleiner verfügbar, Kreativ-Filter bei JPEG+RAW nicht verfügbar, Videoauslöser liegt an einer u...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1

Prophotos.ru
20 January 2013
  • 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. Это фокусное расстояние стало определенным стандартом в жанровой и репортажной фотографии, оно удобно для съемки пейзажей и ростовых портретов.
  • 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;, точный автофокус;, наличие макрорежима у объектива;, удобное квазимеханическое кольцо установки диафрагмы;, пять настраиваемых кнопок;, синхронизация со вспышкой во всем диап...
  • 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 1/2000 с;, отсутствие оптического стабилизатора;, неравномерное заполнение бликов в зоне боке;, высокая цена.
