SONY RX1 REVIEW – REAL DSLR POWER in a Compact Camera! – DigiDIRECT TV Ep 012

- in SONY


  1. Just bought one of these, a real pleasure to use. I'm contemplating selling off my 5D Mark II with kit lens.

  2. This has recently come back up on my screen as I prepare for next acquisition. Thanks: Your review remains every bit as valuable in making this decision now as I remember it having been when it first came out.

  3. Your impressive and thanks a lot for this .. Keep on keeping on!

  4. 04:46 "No Drugs and Nuclear Weapons Allowed Inside" LOL

  5. that friggin price tho….

  6. I  bought a used one a few weeks ago. I am loving it!  Great image quality but it's the quiet shutter that really makes this a great pleasure to use.  I have yet to wish I had a different lens.  So l glad I went for the RX1 over the A7.

  7. wish i could afford one

  8. There is really no comparison to your camera reviews on YouTube. Best reviews and full of useful info every single time.
    Great job!

  9. What's with the hidden images in the end of this video?

  10. Amazing dreamy camera! but I'm not sure if we can call it a compact camera because of the size of that lens

  11. -continuation-
    When I say no better, I meant that it isn't offering what mirrorless cameras have the advantage such as small(er) size with performance that rivals dslrs even in full frame formats. But looking at the GH3 and the Olympus OMD EM1, it shows that it is strangely being reverse engineered that in the end they might be as heavy as magnesium bodied dslrs in the future with their newer incarnations/successors.

  12. Really, the RX1 is a great camera. It really shows that you CAN put a full frame sensor in a body of a "POINT AND SHOOT" size body… albeit with some hindrances such as it may explain why it doesn't have an interchangeable lens feature/ability. Buuuttt… there is this problem: Mirrorless cameras are being reverse engineered in the wrong way. Instead of packing as much punch as possible with reasonably small size, they get bigger to rivaling sizes of DSLRs and offer no better.

  13. Your feet.

  14. Indeed.

  15. I'm trying to decide between the Fujifilm X100S and X-E1 also. The interchangeable lens ability of the X-E1 is very attractive but I really like the optical viewfinder and retro styling of the X100S. They both have the excellent 2.4 million-dot EVF, so that's a wash. Great build quality for both also. It's a tough choice.

  16. Thanks, I'm looking at the XE-1 as well.

  17. I meant the Fujifilm X100S has an APS-C sensor, not an ASP-C sensor. Sorry.

  18. Part 2. Just to continue. I don't own an X100S-yet, but I've seen a lot of the videos about it and the still images. The photos look truly sensational. It also has a built-in, highly sophisticated, very high-resolution EVF (2.4 million pixels) AND an optical viewfinder, along with the typical 3" LCD screen. If you go to fujifilmusadotcom you can get a lot of info on it. I really think it may be what you're looking for. All the best.

  19. Hi Reginald. I would strongly suggest you take a long look at the Fujifilm X100S. It's got an f/2 23mm fixed lens, which is equivalent to a 35mm lens in the 35mm format. The sensor is an ASP-C sized one, so it's smaller than the full-frame sensor on the RX1 but larger than a Micro 4/3 sensor. Some seriously good pro photographers are calling it the perfect street camera. Check out the YouTube videos. It sells for $1375 on Amazon as opposed to $2700 for the RX1. Hope this helps.

  20. Power is only rated at 270 shots per charge, which seems accurate. For serious shooting, you’ll always need to carry at least one spare NP-BX1 battery , but you can’t charge it while you’re using the camera. If you want a fun, well-made point and shoot with exceptional high-ISO performance, a super-sharp lens and don’t care about the price or actual suitability to real-world photography, the Sony RX1 is superb.
