Picture quality like a pro
A Full Frame Exmor® CMOS sensor and BIONZ processor deliver detailed, vivid shots, better than many DSLRs. When you want to capture the scene exactly as it is, the Full Frame sensor has a wide dynamic range for delicately lighting and expressive colours.

Carl Zeiss Sonnar lens – light you can feel

Sonnar comes from Sonne, which means “sun” in German, to highlight the bright, clear pictures this lens delivers. It creates sharp, high contrast images and the multilayer T coating reduces ghosting and flare, for even greater image clarity.

You’re in control

The shot you want, how you want it, every time. The lens of the RX1 has an aperture and focus ring, as well as on-the-body adjustment buttons right at your fingertips. There’s an exposure compensation dial, exposure lock, and even a custom button for your own settings.

Make your own movies

Capture Full HD quality video clips at the touch of a button. Smoothly adjust focus and exposure while you’re shooting, just like a professional movie-maker. Your audience will be impressed by the polished, cinematic results.
