Leaked Sony RX1 Fits a DSLR in Your Pocket

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Images and specs of a new Sony full frame compact camera have leaked over the weekend. The alleged new camera, called RX1, appears to squeeze DSLR-like specs right into your pocket — for a purported £1,800-odd.

PhotoPrice reports that the camera looks to pack a Carl Zeiss 35mm f/2.0 lens and a 24-megapixel full frame sensor. Elsewhere, it also claims it will feature 14-bit RAW, an ISO range of 100-25,600, 5fps continuous shooting, HD video recording, a magnesium body, a 3-inch LCD screen, and the option of optical and electronic external viewfinders.

If — and it's some if — those specs are all accurate, the camera sure means business. Those specs would put this compact toe-to-toe with plenty of DSLRs on the market, in a much more compact form factor. If the leaks are true, Sony's about to shake up the world of digital photography.
