  • Excerpt: Go to my site for the full review & photos ! I’ve been using the Sony RX1 for well over 6 months now; long enough for it to have taken a back seat in my photographic process. I’ve set the camera up to behave exactly how I want, and never have to fiddle with dials or modes to get the shot. With that in mind, I thought I’d put together a little review of this tiny marvel. Build The RX1 is a strange beast.

  • Excerpt: I have written up a long-term user musing of using the RX1 over the span of a year. It's quite lengthy with lots of photos so I will provide a link. http://jkspepper.tumblr.com/post/77778577061/one-year-with-the-sony-rx1 Thanks!

The world's smallest full-frame camera.

  • Excerpt: Truly a sensational shooting experience.The RX-1 packs a one of the finest full-frame sensors yet to hit the market. Couple this factoid with the fact that it is the world's smallest camera with a full-frame sensor and you have the recipe for a game-changer.The RX-1 performs incredibly well in low-light conditions, using only ambient light.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

  • Excerpt: The RX 1 may seem like a novelty, however, some of the best images I've captured (consistently) have been from this camera in the past year I've owned it. The pure truth is in the product, which ultimately comes down to photo quality. Subjects in frame are crystal clear, sharp, with spot on color. I'm more of a hobbyist, and owning other higher end Canons with premium lenses, I wasn't getting the consistent quality of shots I get from this little handheld.

One of the Best!

  • Excerpt: Without question, it's the stunning image quality that is the main selling point for this camera, although the size, design and construction are stellar as well. I have a Nikon D700, and the low light capabilities of this Sony RX1 are right up there with it, particularly when using the multi auto ISO feature. In my opinion, the RX1 is too slow for action shots, or spontaneous street photos, but if you have adequate time to compose your images you will love this camera.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Short Battery Life

My favorite camera

Andrzej Kyn, B&H Photo
8 October 2013
  • Excerpt: The reason I gave it 4 stars only is lack of wireless flash triggering firmware, similar to Sony a77.<br />It's imposible to use a single external flash and the electronic viewfinder (FDA-EV1M) at the same time. Actually, I like the external EVF better and I wouldn't mind to use my HVL-F43AM flash attached to a bracket. <br /><br />These are the reasons I really love this camera: <br /><br />1. Compact size<br /><br />2.
  • Pros: Great Resolution, Small / Compact
  • Cons: No Viewfinder

Amazing quality in a small package

  • Excerpt: I am by no means a professional photographer but I love photography and this camera provides an incredible amount of enjoyment in that area.<br /><br />Build Quality is top notch. The camera has a great weight to it in your hands and feels incredibly solid - except for the back navigation wheel. Why sony felt the need to make it a cheap plastic when everything else is metal just blows my mind.<br /><br />Picture quality is absolutely amazing.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

Small with picture quality!

29 June 2013
  • Excerpt: We've now had the Rx1 for 3 months and 1400 exposures. We have used it as a tourist camera and for landscape and street photography.<br />Handled correctly the camera produces excellent picture quality. I've however noticed that I'm shooting it like a compact camera more than a camera. Auto ISO and P mode is where most of the pictures are shot. This is not the right was to use it.
  • Pros: Dynamic range, Picture Quality, Size
  • Cons: Price for accessories
