Pics of the “new” RX1!


As you know Sony modified the original announced RX1 camera. AF-C Auto Focus option has been removed and shutter speed increased to 1:4000. (translation here) posted the pics of the final RX1 production camera.

Our friend Mike Kobal posted some hands-on pictures of the prototype RX1: “The camera felt just right in my medium sized hands and control dials and buttons were in the right place. I was a little disappointed to realize the size of the lens, especially with the lens hood attached. It will not fit into my pockets

Yesterday Yosuke Aoki from Sony said that “all Sony RX1 photos we have seen so far don’t yet show off the compact full-frame’s camera full potential.“. I can’t wait to see a side by side RAW image comparison between the RX1 and the A99!

A warning: That RX1 eBay auction (Click here) some reader sent me is not for a real in Stock camera!!!

The RX1 can be pre ordered at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Wex UK ,Wex Germany, Sonystore DE-UK-FR-IT-ES-NL-SE-FI-CH and more links at Alphacameradeals.

(SR4) Sony has another “mysterious” new camera to come in 2013.

It doesn’t happen very often but some camera rumors I do receive fall in the category “Mystery cam“. These are cameras having unique and yet unseen features. The Sony RX1 is one of these cameras. According to a trusted source Sony is working on a new “Mystery cam” that yet we haven’t seen realized by any other manufacturer. The source was so cruel (LOL) to not unveil me any bit of info about it. He only said that it is scheduled for a 2013 release. He is a top source, that’s why I post it now on SAR.

Anyway, I let you guess what this may be…

The RX1 can be pre ordered at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Wex UK ,Wex Germany, Sonystore DE-UK-FR-IT-ES-NL-SE-FI-CH and more links at Alphacameradeals.

Reminder (SR = Sonyrumor):
SR1=probably fake rumor
SR2=rumor from unknown sources
SR3=50% chance it is correct
SR4=rumor from known sources
SR5=almost certainly correct!
