Sony Launched 'RX1' Camera with Full-Frame Sensor
Bangalore: Sony unveils the next big thing in the point-and-shoot camera segment with their Cyber-Shot RX1. The camera packs a 24 mega pixel full frame image sensor which is larger than traditional point-and-shoot cameras.
The RX1 is said to be the world’s first compact camera with Exmor CMOS sensor (as mentioned above) which enables full farming image. To be clear the sensor found in RX1 is much larger than most entry level Digital-SLR cameras. This show the company’s engineering strength to pack larger image sensor in a compact size.
The camera not only has a larger sensor but it has another impressive feature. It has an extremely wide f/2.0 aperture and the maximum ISO setting of 25,600. This combination usually results in a very slow depth of field in macro modes.
The RX1 can also shoot 1080p video at 60 frames per second or 24 frames per second. It also features variety of shooting modes like manual exposure controls, RAW shooting and automatic mode as well. Moreover it also has a control ring around the lens for adjusting aperture, pop-up flash and ISO setting.
The price and availability is not yet available but seeing its specs and performance it seems Sony will price it high.
