And it is just that. The brand still has the taint of an ingénue, but the RX1R is hugely impressive. It's so small and light (482g, against a Leica M's 900g with a lens) that initially it seems a little insubstantial and unremarkable — neither of which...

The Sony Cyber-shot RX1 and RX1R are currently unique in being the only full frame compact with fixed lens, with APS-C sized sensor (or smaller) compact cameras being developed in greater numbers. The only other option is to invest in a full-frame...

With no anti-aliasing filter the RX1R is capable of producing highly detailed images that surpass the quality of the standard RX1. However, without the filter in front of the sensor, moiré patterning may be an issue for some photographers. The only...

Sony, not being one of the heritage photography brands, tends to do things a little differently, just because it can. And the new Sony RX1-R is indeed different. Last year the company introduced the Sony RX1, which is the world's smallest 35mm format...

Современные цифровые компактные камеры, на мой взгляд, можно разделить на несколько категорий: простые «мыльницы», «продвинутые» аппараты и предназначенные для активного отдыха. Первые имеют доступную цену и минимум настроек. Их можно рекомендовать...
