With its sleek Leica-esque design it has a weight and feel that is comfortable and professional. Though full-frame sensor cameras are typically found on professional-use cameras, Sony managed to incorporate this feature into their consumer line.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The RX1 isn’t for professionals only. Hobbyists, enthusiasts, and newbies can experience full-frame imaging in a way they never thought possible. To paint an even brighter picture (pun intended) we have provided you with seven features and specifications that will brighten your day.
