Sony Cyber-shot RX1 Offers a 24 MP Exmor Sensor

Sony has come up with a remarkable Sony Cyber-shot RX1 camera that promises a 24 megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor! Sony targets serious photographers through this camera, but it is not meant for everyone. Sony is asking around £2,600 for this cool camera.

What makes it so special is the sensor found inside the RX1 camera, it is about 2.3 times larger than the APS-C sensors found in most DSLR.

Another impressive feature of the RX1 is its extremely wide f/2.0 aperture and a maximum ISO setting 25,600.

The RX1 can shoot 1080p video at either 60 frames per second or 24 frames per second. In RX1 Sony offers a number of mode options like manual exposure controls, RAW shooting, and automated modes for HDR.

The camera also has a control ring around the lens for adjusting aperture settings, a pop-up flash, and a standard ISO hot shoe for external accessories.

The lens ring in the camera enables to switch the lens into 20-35cm focus distance mode. The RX1 holds a bunch of features that lacks in normal DSLR, clearly it could become a major threat to the some high end DSLRs in the current market.
