Measuring 21.5 x 14.4 mm, the image sensor of the DSC-R1 is more than 12X the size of the typical digital camera sensor! You get higher sensitivity, lower noise and amazing resolution of 10.3 megapixels
The 5X Optical Zoom lens covers an incredible range from an ultra-wide 24 mm to 120 mm (35mm equivalent). Exclusive Zeiss T (T-star) coatings reduce internal reflections, suppress lens ?flare? and improve image contrast.
The innovative Real Imaging Processor in the DSC-R1 not only improves picture quality and clarity but also improves camera response time, decreases shutter lag and improves battery stamina.
SLR-style shooting gives you a more stable shooting platform, with elbows tucked in to reduce camera shake.
Choose grid lines, zebra stripes and histogram. Enjoy full-time exposure indication of aperture, shutter speed and Exposure Value over/under.
Available in capture and playback the Live Histogram displays the concentration of pixels at each luminosity value making it easy to evaluate correct exposure. Histogram in Playback mode also includes RGB information
During long exposures, those longer than 1/25 second, the camera captures two exposures with each press of the shutter button. The first exposure captures the scene, and the second exposure captures the CCD noise pattern with a dark frame exposure. By subtracting the two, even long exposures can be clear.
If you?ve already invested in high-capacity flash memory cards, the DSC-R1 is the camera for you. It accepts Memory Stick PRO? media, Compact Flash® Type I/II media,1 and optional Microdrive? media.
Pros count on being able to see what the camera sees. Live Preview in the electronic viewfinder and LCD monitor shows the entire picture for total confidence in framing. You can preview exposure, white balance and depth of focus so you know what you're getting before you take the shot!
The Smart Zoom feature intelligently uses the CMOS imager to let you zoom into the portion of interest by cropping the image size-thus avoiding the image degradation of Digital Zooms.
Enhances dynamic range, avoids crushed shadow detail and clipped highlights.
The DSC-includes a built-in 2.0 LCD monitor that turns and twists through a wide range. Hold the camera overhead, position it at your waist, even lower it to the floor to get your shot easily.
Adjust the aperture from F2.8-16. Set the shutter from 30 seconds to 1/2000 second, or choose Bulb exposure for up to 3 minutes! Adjust ISO from 160 to 3200. Choose Auto White Balance then fine-tune color temperature by hand.
Flexible Exposure control is provided with Aperture Priority (f2.0<16.0), Shutter Priority (30sec<1/3200 sec) and Manual Exposure modes. Exposure Value Compensation (EV) and Flash output level control allow for even more control over your images.
Digital. Powerful. Transportable.? Optional Memory Stick® media is compact, portable and rugged ? connecting a variety of hardware and software applications.
Sony's first digital camera with a Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) image sensor, the DSC-R1 delivers fabulous detail, perfect for giant, poster-sized prints, professional 4-color offset printing and other advanced applications.
Also extends out to 120 mm telephoto (35mm equivalent), giving you superlative range and flexibility in a single, compact, integrated lens.
Choose standard sRGB for accuracy, Vivid sRGB to emulate reversal film, or Adobe RGB for advanced applications. RAW mode brings the latent image into the digital darkroom. RAW files must be converted with Sony?s Image Data Converter SRF software.
Sony's 14-bit Digital EXtended Processor captures the range between highlight and shadow with up to 16,384 values, for extended dynamic contrast and detail.
Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Program shift, EV compensation and full manual exposure control allow you to adjust quickly for a wide range of shooting situations. Capture fast action, control depth of field and more.
By evaluating 5 separate focus areas of the frame, Sony?s Multi-Point AF system can intelligently focus on the subject and avoid mistakenly focusing on the background. In addition, you can manually select a point, or position a point anywhere in the frame with Flexible Spot AF.
Capture raw data directly from the CMOS imager before any in-camera processing, while a separate JPEG is stored for viewing convenience. Sony's IDC RAW converter software provides extensive control of gamma, white balance, color and sharpness for fine tuning the image.
