Short break from the news coverage on the new cameras to share you the link to the latest Sony RX1 review at Dpreview (Click here). The camera earns the Gold Award and an overalls core of 79%. The main negative is the poor video quality but this camera isn’t made for filmmakers anyway
Dpreview writes: “There are plenty of photographers who are likely to appreciate a camera with a fixed prime lens, precisely because it offers something that interchangeable lens cameras don’t – in terms of size and dedication of purpose. So, if what you want or need is a fixed 35mm full frame camera, then the RX1 not only offers you that – it also offers a camera you can really love. And its combination of image quality and size make it one that will allow you to get photos you wouldn’t get with any other camera.”
Photographer and SAR reader Wataru used the RX1 to shot some of his latest portraits and the first nude pics ever taken with the RX1. You can see them at 500px.com (please click only if you are an adult!).
