Posted by in Review

We are glad to present personal review of Sony RX1 by Bede MacCarthy. Hope you enjoy it! Source – Author – Bede MacCarthy Sony RX1 camera review Yep that’s right, I finally got time to put down my thoughts for a Sony RX1 camera review – the small camera with a big sensor. So here we go.

The A7 is very similar to its more expensive sibling (the A7R), except that it uses a 24 megapixel CMOS sensor with on-chip phase detection.

Sony is producing a new line of FE-series lenses that take advantage of the larger sensor. The A7′s use the new Sony…read more

RX1 – a sweet little monster!

Posted by in Cameras

Sony RX 1 – an orange revolution! This is the first fixed-lens full-frame camera on the market, which means both that it’s comfortably the smallest full-frame camera and, consequently, the most expensive compact camera by some margin. This combination gives the RX1 the chance to become something of a classic, used by photojournalists and other working pros who need a small, flexible camera with excellent image quality. It’s no secret that Sony’s sensors are currently setting the benchmark for image quality and the RX1′s sensor is clearly going to have…read more
