Sony announces the DSC-RX1R full-frame sensor compact digital camera

The Sony DSC-RX1R 24.3 MP effective 35 mm full-frame sensor camera is a special edition of the RX1 for photographers who want to take full advantage of the sensor’s capabilities, and whose workflow normally includes computer based post-processing. The optical low-pass (anti-aliasing) filter that is built into the RX1 to minimize the occurrence of moiré and color artifacts has been removed from the RX1R, allowing the full resolution of the sensor to be achieved without compromise. The RX1R takes RX1 resolution to the limit.

Bright F2.0 Carl Zeiss® Sonnar T* lens expertise meets Sony optical precision in a sophisticated large-aperture lens that earns the coveted “Sonnar” name by offering remarkable brightness reminiscent of the sun.

Multi-interface shoe has been upgraded to record stereo sound when using the optional ECM-XYST1M external microphone.

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.

High speed Auto Focus fast and accurate with high speed AF precision. 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 fast, DSLR-like focusing speeds even in low light.

Full frame burst shooting when subjects are moving quickly, one can capture the decisive moment by shooting continuously at 5 frames per second — while maintaining maximum image quality at full 24.3 effective megapixel (approx.) resolution made possible by the BIONZ® image processor.
