Incredible Image Quality In A Compact Camera
Sony’s proprietary 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor faithfully captures every detail of your scene with remarkable accuracy. Its stunning 24.3MP* resolution is ideal for large-format prints and gives you the freedom to easily frame images for later trimming, while maintaining more than ample resolution.
You’ll enjoy extremely low noise amazingly rich and subtle gradration, thanks to a dynamic range 2.4x wider than that of the Sony DSLR-A900 interchangeable-lens camera. Moreover, razor-sharp alignment of the sensor and optical components, made possible by the RX1 / RX1R’s unified lens/body design, brings out the full potential of the lens to the very edges of your photos.
High Performance And Bright Lens
Carl Zeiss® lens expertise meets Sony optical precision in a sophisticated large-aperture lens that earns the coveted “Sonnar” name by offering remarkable brightness (superior light-capturing capabilities) reminiscent of the sun, or “Sonne” in German. The new optical design of this highly accurate lens includes a slim advanced aspherical (AA) lens element of micro precision that delivers stunning image sharpness and brightness while contributing to a short lens barrel.
Whether taking casual snapshots, highly precise close-ups, or seriously composed landscapes and portraits, the Carl Zeiss® Sonnar T* 35mm F2 fixed focal length lens ensures exceptional image quality.
Clear And Sharp Images With Low Noise
From vivid colours to smooth skin textures and faint rays of light, every detail of your scene is faithfully reproduced throughout an extremely wide dynamic range. This accurate depiction is made possible by Sony’s sophisticated BIONZ™ image processing engine, which expertly processes every detail captured by the high-resolution 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor. Even the most processor-intensive tasks are handled with amazing speed and precision, including 5fps continuous shooting* at full 24.3 effective megapixel resolution, rich 14-bit RAW format conversion and high-sensitivity shooting up to ISO 102400.
Full Resolution With No Compromise
The RX1R is a modified version of the RX1 for photographers who will settle for nothing less than the maximum resolution of which the RX1 sensor is capable, and whose workflow include computer-based post-processing. The optical low-pass (anti-aliasing) filter that is built into the RX1 to minimise the occurrence of moiré and colour artefacts has been removed from the RX1R, allowing the full resolution of the sensor to be achieved without compromise. The trade-off is that post-processing may be required for moiré removal in some images, but the resolution and sharpness advantages are well worth it when image details really matter. The RX1R takes RX1 resolution to the limit.
Sensitivity For Even The Lowest Light Conditions
The RX1R provides a wide default sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 25600. Its highly sensitive 35mm full-frame sensor, bright lens with maximum F2 aperture, and sophisticated image processing technology collaborate with the utmost precision to deliver both high sensitivity and low noise throughout the entire sensitivity range. In Auto ISO mode, you can limit sensitivity to any range between ISO 100 and 25600 to match your desired shooting intentions. Sensitivity can also be extended downward to ISO 50*.
Ergonomic Design And Easy Operation
From its perfectly positioned lens aperture ring to its customisable function buttons, the RX1R is designed for absolute ease of use. You can keep your eyes on your subject while comfortably adjusting aperture, focusing and macro switching rings, so you don't lose focus on what you want to shoot. For the ultimate in user-friendly operation, you can easily reassign five buttons to activate other funtions you frequently use.
Multi Interface Shoe
The multi interface shoe opens the door to a world of useful accessories that will increase your photographic possibilities even further. From flash guns and electronic viewfinders to microphones and thumb grips, you can adapt your RX1R to suit your photographic style.
Full HD Movie Recording
The RX1R shoots in Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution in the AVCHD ver.2.0 progressive format. You can record at a speedy 60/50 fps for super smooth playback and 24 fps for a more cinematic look, as well as other frame rates to achieve different effects. The Creative Style settings and Picture Effects will help you expand your moviemaking creativity while the P/A/S/M modes allow complete manual exposure control.
More Possibilities With Every Shot
You'll enjoy wider compositional possibilities with the Auto HDR and D-Range Optimiser, bracket shooting (Exposure, DRO or White Balance) and Auto HDR shooting modes. You can even achieve straight horizons or architectural shots using a Digital Level Gauge that indicates camera pitch and camera roll on the LCD screen. With memory recall (MR) mode, you can now store and instantly recall up to three sets of camera settings.
Processing Power For The Toughest Tasks
Processing raw images is an absolute breeze with the high-speed auto-focus of this compact camera. Even the most processor-intensive tasks can be completed with amazing speed and precision, thanks to Sony's sophisticated BIONZ™ image processing engine. You can count on it to deliver 5 fps continuous shooting, ISO 14-bit RAW format conversion and shooting up to ISO 102400 (which composites multiple images to reduce noise).
Give Free Reign To Your Creativity
Bring out the character of your shot effortlessly with the Creative Style modes like Portrait, Night Scene, Autumn Leaves, Black & White and Sepia. Or add artistic touches to your shots with Picture Effects like HDR Painting, High Contrast Monochrome, Posterization, Retro Photo and Soft Focus.
Professional Editing With No Loss Of Picture Quality
You'll be able to record images in the 14-bit RAW format ensuring that you'll get the best possible quality for later image adjustment. These RAW files can be developed, edited and managed to match your personal creative vision.
The RX1R supports Sony's proprietary TRILUMINOS™ COLOR, which allows you to view photos and movies in richer more natural colour on Sony TVs equiped with TRILUMINOS™ Display.
