Despite its compact size, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R contains a 24.3-Megapixel, Full Frame EXMOR CMOS Sensor which no other camera in its category can boast. It is also equipped with a Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 35mm f/2.0 Lens for clear images with shallow depth of field. Meanwhile, the BIONZ Image Processor reduces noise and allows continuous shooting of up to 5 fps. Focusing closer to the subject is possible with the 9.1x digital zoom while light intensity can be balanced with the 100-124000 ISO range. Moving subjects can be locked in via High Speed Autofocus while the three lens control rings are ideal for precise manual focusing. Aside from JPEG file extension, the DSC-RX1R also allows RAW Image Capture for further post-processing enhancements. Impressive detail is provided by the Auto HDR mode while the nine aperture blades in the lens makes amazing out-of-focus effects possible. For wider angles, Sweep Panorama shooting can also be activated. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R can also record full HD 1080p video at 60 fps. All photos and videos can be viewed using the 3", 1229k-dot TFT LCD Lens.

Product Features in Detail

24.3 MP 1.37 in sensor & powerful BIONZ® processor
A new world of high-quality images is now available with the 24.3 MP effective 35 mm full-frame sensor, an ISO range of 100–25,600, and a sophisticated balance of high resolving power, gradation, and low noise. The BIONZ® image processor allows up to 5 fps high-speed continuous shooting and 14 bit RAW image data recording.

World’s first fixed-lens 1.37 in camera
A remarkable feat of engineering, Sony has packed a 35 mm full-frame sensor, normally found in large DSLRs, into a compact camera body. Offering a classic design with an intuitive, user-friendly operation, the compact, palm-sized dimensions mean you can carry it anywhere and achieve image quality never before available in such a compact camera.

Full HD video, plus Priority selection
Full HD video at up to 50 fps (frames per second) with film-like effects, manual control, and audio input. For creative flexibility while shooting movies and stills, users can enter Program Auto (P), Aperture Priority (A), Shutter Speed Priority (S), or Manual Exposure (M) mode for manual shooting and exposure control. Enjoy clear sound recording and playback via a built-in stereo microphone and mono speaker. Additionally, an optional microphone can be plugged into the camera.

Full-frame burst shooting
High speed continuous shooting at up to 5 fps lets you capture that elusive smile or incredible field-long pass; it’s made possible by the BIONZ® processor and 24 megapixel sensor.

Smart multi-interface shoe for accessories
Enhance your RX1R 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.

Quick Navi – settings at a glance
Pressing the Fn button activates Quick Navi, allowing the user to check camera settings at a glance and promptly change settings without having to search for dedicated menus. You can concentrate on the shot, not on the camera.

Your choice of two ratios for still images
Capture still images in either 3:2 or 16:9 aspect ratio. This provides the freedom to choose a ratio that matches the scene or your specific shooting purpose.

Smart multi-interface shoe for accessories
Enhance your RX1R 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.

Three focusing modes
The RX1R features Autofocus (AF) and Manual Focus (MF) modes, plus Sony's Direct Manual Focus (DMF). DMF uses autofocusing to quickly focus on your subject, and then allows you to refine the focus point manually for precise adjustment.

High-speed Auto Focus
To improve focusing speed and sensitivity, the Exmor® CMOS sensor uses its rapid throughput to deliver image signals to the camera’s BIONZ® processor, which in turn sends response data to a new high-speed motor in the lens. The result is rapid DSLR-like focusing speeds even in low light.

Creative Style settings
Control how the camera processes your images with 15 finishing styles: Standard, Vivid, Neutral, Clear, Deep, Light, Twilight, Night View, Autumn Leaves, B&W, Sepia, Sunset, Portrait, and Landscape. You can even fine-tune contrast, saturation3, and sharpness to your personal taste.

Auto HDR mode gets all the details
HDR, or High Dynamic Range, combines the best highlight detail from one shot, the best mid-tones from a second and the best shadow detail from a third for one incredible shot all in a split second.

Nine aperture blades for better “bokeh”
Nine aperture blades form a nearly perfect circle throughout the normally-used aperture range of F2 to F22, resulting in background defocusing, also called “bokeh,” that is smooth and natural-looking.

Conveniently placed dials
Quick access to conveniently placed exposure compensation and focus mode dials let you meet the photographic challenge in front of you while using the camera more intuitively.

Sweep Panorama™ Mode
Capture dramatic landscapes in a moment. Press the shutter, sweep vertically or horizontally. The camera does the rest, continuously shooting images and stitching them together.

Manual Focus made easier
Manual focus is even more precise with the peaking mode. This highlights parts of the image as they are in focus with one of three colors (white, red, or yellow). This is especially helpful during macro or portrait photography where your focus setting can make or break your shot.

Save as JPEG files, RAW files, or both
The DSC-RX1R saves pictures as compact JPEG files and/or ultra-high quality RAW files. A RAW file contains the data directly off the sensor, free of camera color and detail processing, giving you maximum latitude to later enhance the image on your PC.

Amazing low-light performance
Don’t ruin moody or romantic low-light settings with a flash. Extremely high ISO 25600 lets you get a great shot in the most adverse conditions.

3 lens control rings for fingertip convenience
Full manual operation is intuitive on the RX1R. Users can keep their eyes on the subject and concentrate on the composition while comfortably adjusting the dedicated aperture, focusing, and macro switching rings—all of which are located on the lens for easy access.

Bright F2.0 Carl Zeiss® Sonnar® T* lens
Newly developed large-diameter F2.0 Carl Zeiss® Sonnar® T* lens delivers both refined background defocusing, or “bokeh”, and macro capabilities. A premium multi-layered T* coating also dramatically reduces ghost and flare caused by light reflection.

Works with iMovie and Final Cut Pro X
This product is compatible with Final Cut Pro X and iMovie.
