Video review: Fuji vs Sony RX1 by Kai from Digitalrev

Kai, the crazy guy from Digitalrev compared the new Fuji X cameras against the Sony RX1.

But there is also a more “serious” review to read :) J.W. Kern from TheGoldenSieve (Click here) posted his Sony RX1 user report: “I cut my photographic teeth on film and I will always have an affection for it. There is a sense that one is playing within the rules when he uses film. That same feeling is here in the RX1. I never thought I’d say this about a camera

RX1 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
RX1 Gariz accessories:
1) They made a new half leather case in Black and Brown (Click here to see them on eBay).
2) The new lens cap (Click here to see them on eBay).
3) The new entry is the anti loose button(!) (Click here to see them on eBay). Don’t know if that will be really useful for you RX1 owners. Someone has it and call it how it works? Thanks!
4) And this is the really first time I see that. A special Leather skin hood! (Click here to see them on eBay).
