Six months after the release of the Sony RX1 - the world's first full-frame compact camera, no less - Sony has revealed a second option of the model. The

Sony RX1-R review

 

World's smallest digital full-frame camera has anti-aliasing filter removed

Compact size ; Full frame sensor ; Aperture ring

Poor battery life ; Price ; No touchscreen

Sony, not being one of the heritage photography brands, tends to do things a little differently, just because it can. And the new Sony RX1-R is indeed different.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R review

  (Rating Hidden)

It looks like a compact camera, but the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R combines a 35mm full-frame sensor - the same size as used in a 35mm film SLR - with a specially-designed Carl Zeiss lens in a bid to produce the best photos ever seen from a camera of...

Sony RX1 R review: The best 35mm in the world?

 

There's a bit of a gap between a smartphone camera and digital camera. While most of us dream of a highly portable camera with incredible image quality, the technology is a little way off and so we are forced to compromise in some way.

The Sony RX1R flies very close to being our perfect camera, but the occasionally slow autofocus keeps it from being a camera you can rely on 100 per cent. It is small enough to be taken anywhere, able to take incredible photos and easy to use.

Whilst pundits suggest sales of compact system cameras may be peaking, a new market has been created in premium compacts with fixed lenses and large sensors. The appeal is that bags of manual control shoehorned into hymnbook-sized snapper makes for...

High-resolution full frame sensor in a small-ish camera package, high quality bright aperture lens, built-to-last metal construction suggests a device fashioned for war, detail packed images

Hard to justify on price alone, no viewfinder built in (accessory viewfinder is pricey too), short-ish battery life of 200+ shots

Sony DSC-RX1R review - A premium snapshot camera that will holds its own against pro DSLRs

 

A larger sensor than most compacts, but a bigger price tag than most DSLRs

High-resolution full frame sensor in a small-ish camera package, high quality bright aperture lens, built-to-last metal construction suggests a device fashioned for war, detail packed images

Hard to justify on price alone, no viewfinder built in (accessory viewfinder is pricey too), short-ish battery life of 200+ shots

Superb it may be, but whether the RX1R is worth it overall depends on the application to which you may wish to put it.
