Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R Review

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R comes as update to Sony Cyber-shot RX1, though with anti-aliasing filter absent for delivering sharper images. This camera is present at same price as original version, featuring fixed 35mm f/2.0 Carl Zeiss Sonnar lens.

 

The Cyber-shot RX1 came as the World’s initial compact camera, which came along with full-frame sensor plus fixed lens. Since the RX1R is the updated version, it employs the 24.3MP sensor similar as Sony Alpha A99. Even then with use of fixed Carl 35mm Zeiss Sonnar f/2.0 lens, this camera can have compact body. RX1R offers 5fps continuous shooting, 3-inch screen, 49mm filter thread and built-in pop-up flash.

 

The Carl Zeiss Sonnar lens sits on camera’s front and for normal use features 30cm closest focus distance. Rotating macro ring allows focusing of camera from 20cm to 35cm. A manual aperture ring sits nearest to camera, having settings lying in-between f/2 and f/22, exhibiting 2 click stops in-between each marked aperture. Recessed pop-up flash may be found on top together with standard flash hot-shoe, featuring multi-accessory port of Sony. The side has standard 3.5mm-jack microphone-input connections, HDMI, MicroUSB ports for both computer-connections plus charging of battery when inside camera.

 

Key features of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R include 24.3MP Full Frame CMOS Exmor sensor without AA filter, 1229k-dot 3-inch screen, f/2-f/22 aperture lens-ring, high-class rounded bokeh 9 aperture blades and 20cm macro mode, middle Macro ring and front focusing ring, Advanced Aspherical (AA) lens, BIONZ processor, 35mm Carl Zeiss Sonnar T f/2 lens, Top Mode dial, On/off flash hot-shoe, Multi-frame noise reduction, Full High Definition RASM video 24p, ISO 100 – ISO25600, with extended range of ISO50 – ISO25600, Multi-frame noise reduction ISO51200 and ISO102400 available, Magnesium body featuring customizable buttons, exposure compensation dial atop and control wheel at back and dial at front modes of focus.

 

The camera feels quite solidly built, sporting compact metal body with rubber grip on both back and front. A copper colored ring has been designed for representing all full-frame models from Sony, giving the camera some flashiness. The battery cover is of plastic make, but does seem appreciably sturdy. Sony Cyber-Shot RX1 as well as RX1R currently are unique, being the exclusive full-frame compact having fixed lens and APS-C sized sensor (or perhaps smaller) compact cameras under development in greater proportion. An alternative, albeit bulkier would be investing in full-frame Digital SLR along with equivalent lens, or consider digital rangefinder, which also comes is costlier.

 

Expect Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R to provide high-quality images via the sharp 35mm Carl Zeiss f/2.0 front lens. The camera is approximately the size of medium-sized mirror-less camera exhibiting compact fixed lens on front part, though with full-frame sensor, noise performance is outstanding. Individuals seeking for good-quality in small package will be pleased with what the RX1R offers, especially if able to afford it. This camera exhibits slight improvement compared to original RX1, owing to removal of AA filter that results in slightly sharper image-delivery. 

  • The Good :
    Impressive noise performance; Extremely quiet shutter; Excellent build-quality; Great capture quality and features
  • The Bad :
    Short battery life; High price; Charger not included
Our score:
4.5 / 5
