Sony has announced the RX1, a full frame compact digital camera. With a full frame sensor, the camera puts out a massive 24.3MP resolution. Coupled with a fixed Carl Zeiss 35mm f/2.0 lens, the images from the camera should be outstanding. The camera can take up to 25,600 ISO images. I’m sure the images will be quite stunning. The camera sports a nice 3″ screen and Sony’s compact built-in flash. The size of the camera overall looks really good.
Priced at US$2,799.99 – I’m really curious to see if the market takes this up. It will likely cater for the more serious photo-enthusiasts. I know I’m tempted. I wonder if other manufacturers will follow suit as well (with more full frame compact cameras) or just wait to see how the market reacts to the RX1.
