Sony RX1 vs RX1R Major Difference Explained

Sony-RX1-vs-RX1-R

The DSC-RX1R is a special edition of the RX1 for photographers who want to take full advantage of the sensor’s capabilities. The optical low-pass (anti-aliasing) filter has been removed from the RX1R, allowing the full resolution of the sensor to be achieved without compromise. This results in resolution and sharpness when image
details matter.

Sony RX1R Press Release

Sony Press Release

Weybridge, 27th June 2013

A revolution in resolution: enthusiast-oriented Cyber-shot™ RX1R delivers sharpest ever detail

• Joins the acclaimed Cyber-shot™ RX1 full-frame compact camera with 24.3 effective megapixels and Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* F2 lens
• No optical low-pass filter for uncompromised image resolution
• Ideal for landscapes and other high-detail scenes
• TRILUMINOS Colour for richer, more natural colours

A new sister version of Sony’s acclaimed Cyber-shot™ RX1 full-frame compact camera satisfies the most critical photographer’s hunger for sharper, more detailed pictures.

Building on the outstanding imaging power of the RX1, the RX1R takes pixel-perfect picture quality to new heights. The model’s ‘R’ suffix denotes a further improvement in the pocket-sized camera’s already spectacular resolution.

In common with many DSLR cameras, the original Cyber-shot™ RX1 features an optical low-pass filter (OLPF) in front of the sensor to suppress unwanted moiré and colour artefacts. The enthusiast-oriented RX1R removes this low-pass filter, guaranteeing flawless capture of fine details without any blurring or dispersion. To compensate for the OLPF’s removal, the camera’s processing functions have been optimised to maintain image sharpness without compromising lens/sensor performance*.

* Moire and/or colour artifacts may be visible in some photographic situations. Colour reproduction performance is the same as the RX1.

Bringing new levels of realism to landscapes and other finely-detailed subjects, the modified edition RX1R lets photo enthusiasts express their creativity with unprecedented clarity. While weight and dimensions remain the same as the ground-breaking RX1, the special edition RX1R adds other refinements to suit discerning photographers.

In addition, compatibility with TRILUMINOS Colour technology ensures even richer, more natural colours when viewing stills and video on the new generation of BRAVIA televisions featuring TRILUMINOS Display. Videographers can also add an optional stereo microphone, allowing Full HD movie soundtracks to be captured with even greater clarity.

Introduced in September 2012, the Cyber-shot™ DSC-RX1 is world’s first compact fixed-lens camera with a 35mm full-frame 24.3 effective megapixel sensor. It’s already won several prestigious European accolades, including ‘Best Premium Camera’ in the 2013 Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) Awards. Read the Cyber-shot™ DSC-RX1 press release (12 September 2012) here.

The Cyber-shot™ RX1R full-frame compact camera can be pre-ordered in the UK via http://www.sony.co.uk/RX and is generally available in Europe from August 2013.
