The newest model of the Sony Cyber-Shot called the DSC-RX1R was released a few days ago and already has over 60 reviews and 4.5 stars - note there is limited quantity available. This highly anticipated camera sports some very interesting features.
First, the quality of the pictures is sharpened by the massively powerful 24.3 megapixel output. The resolution is ideal, using the 35mm format (full frame).
The low-pass filter has been removed so that the brilliance of the resolution becomes apparent.
This camera also has the Carl Zeiss Sonnar T lens, which is really a noticeable feature for both still photos and video. Video recording options include 1080p, 60i/p or 24p cinematic mode. I believe that photographers will look at the Sony DSC-RX1R with a new take on compact cameras. It packs some seriously incredible features in a small package.
When researching prices, we found that Amazon had beat all the other online retailers. One benefit to choosing them is they offer free super saving shipping and 1-click ordering process.
