Sony RX1 review : low-light sample image gallery

What's in a name ! Carl Zeiss speak for itself.

It is beautiful, it is expensive, it is a full-frame camera, it is the envy of many, the Sony RX1, which some have already imagined heirs to come in an interchangeable lens version, was in my hands the past few days for its review. Without betraying the conclusion of the test Sony RX1 review, I can already tell you the enormous pleasure that this luxury compact camera procured me wile taking photos with it. As for the picture quality, you can get an idea for yourself with this first gallery of downloadable images. I focused on low-light photos. Some are taken in high sensibility, with ISO values that are far from frigtening the 24×36 sensor of 24-megapixel Cyber-shot DSC- RX1 .

The Sony RX1 is sharing with the DSLR SLT-A99 and NEX-the VG900 camcorder its 24-megapixel full-frame sensor, a CMOS imager. With the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100, the expert compact sensor 1″, it shares a spirit that can be summarized by “optimal technology packed in a rather compact camera body”. (Read the Sony RX100 review coming soon…).

The Hermès store in Lyon, France. If you go to my Flickr gallery and download its full resolution version, zoom on the watch and see what the small dust captured by the RX1 and its nice piece of glass.

Still possible to get pretty sharp images handheld in low-light with the 35mm lens in spite of its lack of built-in image stabilization.
