Rate & Review


A fixed lens 35mm full frame camera provides the ideal platform to realize the full potential of a high performance lens, achieving consistently superior reproduction and resolution right out to the image edges. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R Digital Camera pushes the limits of compact digital camera performance to a new, unsurpassed level. The DSC-RX1R is a special edition of the RX1 that will be produced without an optical low-pass (anti-aliasing) filter, fulfilling the wishes of professionals and enthusiasts with an appetite for even greater sharpness and resolution. The result is unprecedented resolution, the highest ever achieved in a 35mm full-frame format digital camera that clearly defines the tiniest subject details throughout the image. The “R” appended to the model number stands for “resolution.”

24.3 MP 35mm Full Frame Sensor
A whole new world of high-quality images are realized through the 24.3 MP effective 35 mm full-frame sensor, a normal sensor range of ISO 100 – 25600, and a sophisticated balance of high resolving power, gradation and low noise. The BIONZ® image processor enables up to 5 fps high-speed continuous shooting and 14-bit RAW image data recording.

DSC-RX1R: Ultimate Resolution
The RX1R 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 f/2.0 Carl Zeiss® Sonnar T* 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 reminiscent of the sun. 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.

Full HD 24p Video and Stereo Input
Create movies of amazing clarity at Full HD resolution with manual control and stereo recording. Movies can be recorded at 60i for super smooth playback or 24p for a cinematic look. You can also use P/A/S/M modes to expand your moviemaking creativity. The DSC-RX1R Multi-interface shoe has been upgraded to record stereo sound when using the optional ECM-XYST1M external microphone.

Amazing Low-light Performance
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. (Recommended for still subjects.)

High Speed Auto Focus
Focus fast as with high speed AF.  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, you 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.

Three Control Lens Rings
Full manual operation is intuitive on the RX1. Users can keep their eyes on the subject and concentrate on the composition while comfortably adjusting the dedicated aperture, focusing, and macro switching rings.

Conveniently Placed Dials
Quick access to conveniently placed exposure compensation and focus mode dials.

The DSC-RX1R support Sony’s proprietary TRILUMINOS Color technology, allowing you to experience photos and movies in rich, natural colors on any TV equipped with a TRILUMINOS Display. The expanded color gamut immerses you in those unforgettably colorful moments, from the complex shades in a shimmering blue sky to the delicate skin in a baby’s face.

D Brian Y. from New York, NY on August 10, 2013:
Fantastic full-frame compact. The Zeiss lens does a beautiful job rendering out-of-focus areas. The camera puts out outstanding images. Great overall fit and finish (as it should be in this price range) and operation is generally smooth and free of bugs. Minor quibble is that the autofocus is hit or miss in low light. AF speed is good in good light, but lags a bit behind the X100s. But that's par for the course for many non-DSLRs - and this camera puts out sharper images. It's pricey, but there's nothing else like it out there as of this writing (full-frame compact with no AA filter). I would definitely recommend it.
