Extraordinary photographs

Whether you’re capturing a fashion shot, a friend’s portrait, or anything in between, the RX1 series’ ZEISS® lens and 35 mm Full Frame 24 MP Exmor™ CMOS sensor ensure each image has razor-sharp details, smooth colour gradations and beautiful bokeh to best highlight your subject.

24MP 35-mm full-frame Exmor sensor

Other cameras force you to choose between image quality or portability, but the RX1 gives you both. Its 35mm full-frame 24MP Exmor™ CMOS sensor is the same as what’s used in Sony’s professional-level SLT-A99

Professional ZEISS® lens

Legendary ZEISS expertise delivers a sophisticated fixed focal-length lens with a bright F2.0 maximum aperture to get everything from candid street shots to studied nature compositions.

Powerful processing engine

Sony’s fast, high-fidelity BIONZ™ image processor captures every nuance of the scene even shooting at a rapid 5 fps, while its 14-bit RAW format conversion extends your ability to manipulate the shot later.

Three advances, one amazing package

Sony engineered the lens, sensor, and processing engine with a precision beyond that achievable with an interchangeable-lens camera. With a fixed lens, these three key elements were fine-tuned to complement each other perfectly for stunning results.

See the light

The sophisticated, large aperture (F/2.0 maximum) lens from Zeiss is remarkably bright while remaining unusually compact.

Take a shot in the dark

See it all with an OLED (XGA) Tru-Finder™ and a 100% field of view.

Pro-level processing

The ultra-detailed 14-bit RAW output capability gives photographers the precise control necessary for lossless fine-tuning of contrast, exposure, saturation, white balance and more.

Add accessories. And inspiration.

One mount, many possibilities

Enhance your RX1 with advanced accessories that attach to its multi interface shoe—a standard mount upgraded by smart data transfer. With the multi interface shoe, you can enjoy extensive data capabilities with Sony add-ons, or use a wide range of third-party accessories as well.
