Product information
Going full frame doesn't always mean bigger – the Sony DSC-RX1 High Performance Compact Camera offers a portable design with professional level image quality.

Full frame

Usually reserved for high-end DSLRs, Sony has packed a 35 mm full frame sensor into a compact camera body to make the RX1, delivering highly detailed, professional quality results without the bulk.

A BIONZ image processor offers high speed image capture at 5 fps so you won't miss that perfect shot, along with the ability to handle 14-bit RAW image data recording so you can manipulate the shot later.

Quality design

A professional ZEISS lens offers a fixed focal length that's ideal for capturing landscapes and portraits. A bright 2.0 maximum aperture allows for sharp shooting with beautiful bokeh, even in tricky lighting situations.

A premium magnesium body offers a strong yet lightweight design for ultimate portability along with a classic, sophisticated design.

Multi interface shoe

Unusually for a compact, the DSCRX1 features a multi interface shoe – a standard mount upgraded by smart data transfer, which allows you to customise your user experience with a range of advanced accessories.

You'll be able to use a range of Sony and third-party accessories such as an optical or electronic viewfinder or clip-on LCD monitor to suit your needs.

Creative control

Take advantage of full creative controls and conveniently placed dials that help you use the camera more intuitively. The DSC-RX1 features an aperture control ring on the lens, a strategically placed focus mode dial for easy switching and customisable buttons for your most frequently used actions.

A large, bright 3” screen clearly displays your scenes and movies, easily readable even in bright sunlight.

Optimise your memory

It is important to have the right memory card for your camera. The memory card will determine how fast an image is saved and how fast an image is uploaded.

If you're shooting high definition videos along with high resolution images then it's best to invest in a high performance memory card. A high performance memory card will get the best out of your photography, ensuring the best continuous shooting speed and high quality data capture.

With the ability to shot full frame and capture Full HD video, the Sony DSC-RX1 High Performance Compact Camera offers both performance and style.
