Sony RX1, A User Report
Sony RX1 User Report.

I hesitate to write about gear. Tools are tools and the bitter truth is that a great craftsman rises above his tools to create a masterpiece whereas most of us try to improve our abominations by buying better or faster hammers to hit the same nails at the same awkward angles.

The internet is fairly flooded with reviews of this tiny marvel, and it isn’t my intention to compete with those articles. If you’re looking for a full-scale review of every feature or a down-to-Earth accounting of the RX1’s strengths and weaknesses, I recommend starting here.

Instead, I’d like to provide you with a flavor of how I’ve used the camera over the last six months. In short, this is a user report. To save yourself a few thousand words: I love the thing. As we go through this article, you’ll see this is a purpose built camera. The RX1 is not for everyone, but we will get to that and on the way, I’ll share a handful of images that I made with the camera.

It should be obvious to anyone reading this that I write this independently and have absolutely no relationship with Sony (other than having exchanged a large pile of cash for this camera at a retail outlet).

Before we get to anything else, I want to clear the air about two things: Price and Features

The Price

First things first: the price. The $2800+ cost of this camera is the elephant in the room and, given I purchased the thing, you may consider me a poor critic. That in mind, I want to offer you three thoughts:

Consumer goods cost what they cost, in the absence of a competitor (the Fuji X100s being the only one worth mention) there is no comparison and you simply have to decide for yourself if you are willing to pay or not.
Normalize the price per sensor area for all 35mm f/2 lens and camera alternatives and you’ll find the RX1 is an amazing value.
You are paying for the ability to take photographs, plain and simple. Ask yourself, “what are these photographs worth to me?”

In my case, #3 is very important. I have used the RX1 to take hundreds of photographs of my family that are immensely important to me. Moreover, I have made photographs (many appearing on this page) that are moving or beautiful and only happened because I had the RX1 in my bag or my pocket. Yes, of course I could have made these or very similar photographs with another camera, but that is immaterial.

35mm by 24mm by 35mm f/2

The killer feature of this camera is simple: it is a wafer of silicon 35mm by 24mm paired to a brilliantly, ridiculously, undeniably sharp, contrasty and bokehlicious 35mm f/2 Carl Zeiss lens. Image quality is king here and all other things take a back seat. This means the following: image quality is as good or better than your DSLR, but battery life, focus speed, and responsiveness are likely not as good as your DSLR. I say likely because, if you have an entry-level DSLR, the RX1 is comparable on these dimensions. If you want to change lenses, if you want an integrated viewfinder, if you want blindingly fast phase-detect autofocus then shoot with a DSLR. If you want the absolute best image quality in the smallest size possible, you’ve got it in the RX1.

While we are on the subject of interchangeable lenses and viewfinders…

I have an interchangeable lens DSLR and I love the thing. It’s basically a medium format camera in a 35mm camera body. It’s a powerhouse and it is the first camera I reach for when the goal is photography. For a long time, however, I’ve found myself in situations where photography was not the first goal, but where I nevertheless wanted to have a camera. I’m around the table with friends or at the park with my son and the DSLR is too big, too bulky, too intimidating. It comes between you and life. In this realm, mirrorless, interchangeable lens cameras seem to be king, but they have a major flaw: they are, for all intents and purposes, just little DSLRs.

As I mentioned above, I have an interchangeable lens system, why would I want another, smaller one? Clearly, I am not alone in feeling this way, as the market has produced a number of what I would call “professional point and shoots.” Here we are talking about the Fuji X100/X100s, Sigma DPm-series and the RX100 and RX1.

Design is about making choices

When the Fuji X100 came out, I was intrigued. Here was a cheap(er), baby Leica M. Quiet, small, unobtrusive. Had I waited to buy until the X100s had come out, perhaps this would be a different report. Perhaps, but probably not. I remember thinking to myself as I was looking at the X100, “I wish there was a digital Rollei 35, something with a fixed 28mm or 35mm lens that would fit in a coat pocket or a small bag.” Now of course, there is.

So, for those of you who said, “I would buy the RX1 if it had interchangeable lenses or an integrated viewfinder or faster autofocus,” I say the following: This is a purpose built camera. You would not want it as an interchangeable system, it can’t compete with DSLR speed. A viewfinder would make the thing bigger and ruin the magic ratio of body to sensor size—further, there is a 3-inch LCD viewfinder on the back! Autofocus is super fast, you just don’t realize it because the bar has been raised impossibly high by ultra-sonic magnet focusing rings on professional DSLR lenses. There’s a fantastic balance at work here between image quality and size—great tools are about the total experience, not about one or the other specification.

In short, design is about making choices. I think Sony has made some good ones with the RX1.

In use

So I’ve just written 1,000 words of a user report without, you know, reporting on use. In many ways the images on the page are my user report. These photographs, more than my words, should give you a flavor of what the RX1 is about. But, for the sake of variety, I intend to tell you a bit about the how and the why of shooting with the RX1.

Snapshots

As a beginning enthusiast, I often sneered at the idea of a snapshot. As I’ve matured, I’ve come to appreciate what a pocket camera and a snapshot can offer. The RX1 is the ultimate photographer’s snapshot camera.

I’ll pause here to properly define snapshot as a photograph taken quickly with a handheld camera.

To quote Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” So it is with photography. Beautiful photographs happen at the decisive moment—and to paraphrase Henri Cartier-Bresson further—the world is newly made and falling to pieces every instant. I think it is no coincidence that each revolution in the steady march of photography from the tortuously slow chemistry of tin-type and daguerreotype through 120 and 35mm formats to the hyper-sensitive CMOS of today has engendered new categories and concepts of photography.

Photography is a reflexive, reactionary activity. I see beautiful light or the unusual in an every day event and my reaction is a desire to make a photograph. It’s a bit like breathing and has been since I was a kid.

Rather than sneer at snapshots, nowadays I seek them out; and when I seek them out, I do so with the Sony RX1 in my hand.

How I shoot with the RX1

Despite much bluster from commenters on other reviews as to the price point and the purpose-built nature of this camera (see above), the RX1 is incredibly flexible. Have a peek at some of the linked reviews and you’ll see handheld portraits, long exposures, images taken with off-camera flash, etc.

Yet, I mentioned earlier that I reach for the D800 when photography is the primary goal and so the RX1 has become for me a handheld camera—something I use almost exclusively at f/2 (people, objects, shallow DoF) or f/8 (landscapes in abundant light, abstracts). The Auto-ISO setting allows the camera to choose in the range from ISO 50 and 6400 to reach a proper exposure at a given aperture with a 1/80 s shutter speed. I have found this shutter speed ensures a sharp image every time (although photographers with more jittery grips may wish there was the ability to select a different default shutter speed). This strategy works because the RX1 has a delightfully clicky exposure compensation dial just under your right thumb—allowing for fine adjustment to the camera’s metering decision.

So then, if you find me out with the RX1, you’re likely to see me on aperture priority, f/2 and auto ISO. Indeed, many of the photographs on this page were taken in that mode (including lots of the landscape shots!).

Working within constraints.

The RX1 is a wonderful camera to have when you have to work within constraints. When I say this, I mean it is great for photography within two different classes of constraints: 1) physical constraints of time and space and 2) intellectual/artistic constraints.

To speak to the first, as I said earlier, many of the photographs on this page were made possible by having a camera with me at a time that I otherwise would not have been lugging around a camera. For example, some of the images from the Grand Canyon you see were made in a pinch on my way to a Christmas dinner with my family. I didn’t have the larger camera with me and I just had a minute to make the image. Truth be told, these images could have been made with my cell phone, but that I could wring such great image quality out of something not much larger than my cell phone is just gravy. Be it jacket pocket, small bag, bike bag, saddle bag, even fannie pack—you have space for this camera anywhere you go.

Earlier I alluded to the obtrusiveness of a large camera. If you want to travel lightly and make photographs without announcing your presence, it’s easier to use a smaller camera. Here the RX1 excels. Moreover, the camera’s leaf shutter is virtually silent, so you can snap away without announcing your intention. In every sense, this camera is meant to work within physical constraints.

I cut my photographic teeth on film and I will always have an affection for it. There is a sense that one is playing within the rules when he uses film. That same feeling is here in the RX1. I never thought I’d say this about a camera, but I often like the JPEG images this thing produces more than I like what I can push with a RAW. Don’t get me wrong, for a landscape or a cityscape, the RAW processed carefully is FAR, FAR better than a JPEG.

But when I am taking snapshots or photos of friends and family, I find the JPEGs the camera produces (I’m shooting in RAW + JPEG) so beautiful. The camera’s computer corrects for the lens distortion and provides the perfect balance of contrast and saturation. The JPEG engine can be further tweaked to increase the amount of contrast, saturation or dynamic range optimization (shadow boost) used in writing those files. Add in the ability to rapidly compensate exposure or activate various creative modes and you’ve got this feeling you’re shooting film again. Instant, ultra-sensitive and customizable film.

Pro Tip: Focusing

Almost all cameras come shipped with what I consider to be the worst of the worst focus configurations. Even the Nikon D800 came to my hands set to focus when the shutter button was halfway depressed. This mode will ruin almost any photograph. Why? Because it requires you to perform legerdemain to place the autofocus point, depress the shutter halfway, recompose and press the shutter fully. In addition to the chance of accidentally refocusing after composing or missing the shot—this method absolutely ensures that one must focus before every single photograph. Absolutely impossible for action or portraiture.

Sensibly, most professional or prosumer cameras come with an AF-ON button near where the shooter’s right thumb rests. This separates the task of focusing and exposing, allowing the photographer to quickly focus and to capture the image even if focus is slightly off at the focus point. For portraits, kids, action, etc the camera has to have a hair-trigger. It has to be responsive. Manufacturer’s: stop shipping your cameras with this ham-fisted autofocus arrangement.

Now, the RX1 does not have an AF-ON button, but it does have an AEL button whose function can be changed to “MF/AF Control Hold” in the menu. Further, other buttons on the rear of the camera can also be programmed to toggle between AF and MF modes. What this all means is that you can work around the RX1’s buttons to make it’s focus work like a DSLR’s. (For those of you who are RX1 shooters, set the front switch to MF, the right control wheel button to MF/AF Toggle and the AEL button to MF/AF Control Hold and voila!) The end result is that, when powered on the camera is in manual focus mode, but the autofocus can be activated by pressing AEL, no matter what, however, the shutter is tripped by the shutter release. Want to switch to AF mode? Just push a button and you’re back to the standard modality.

Carrying.

I keep mine in a small, neoprene pouch with a semi-hard LCD cover and a circular polarizing filter on the front—perfect for buttoning up and throwing into a bag on my way out of the house. I have a soft release screwed into the threaded shutter release and a custom, red twill strap to replace the horrible plastic strap Sony provided. I plan to gaffer tape the top and the orange ring around the lens. Who knows, I may find an old Voigtlander optical viewfinder in future as well.

    HORRID Motion Sensor!, February 15, 2018

    By Mel C.

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    This review is from: ZOSI 8CH Security Camera System HD-TVI Full 1080P Video DVR Recorder with 4X HD 1920TVL 1080P Indoor Outdoor Weatherproof CCTV Cameras 1TB Hard Drive,Motion Alert, Smartphone, PC Easy Remote Access (Electronics)

    I had multiple Amazon packages stolen off of my front porch yesterday. This is the first time something like this has happened. Luckily, (or so I thought) I have my Zosi security camera system! I thought it would be simple to find video of the perpetrator and report him to authorities. That assumption is where my nightmare began. The camera’s “motion sensor” somehow picked up the delivery man leaving my property but it never triggered when he placed them at the door (he took a picture of the delivered packages at my door so I know they were there). When I arrived home I walked around the back of my property and the camera picked up me entering my house but not walking around the back. How could it miss something so obvious as a PERSON walking right in front of it?

    I spent an hour and a half re watching the footage at 1x speed (2x speed went way too fast to pick up anything and there was no in between option) to try to find who stole my items. You know what I saw? Trees moving in the wind. Nothing. This system’s motion sensor will pick up a tree or nothing for fifteen minutes at a time but something as large as a person placing a package at a front door will not trigger it. Did I mention the sensor was sent to its most sensitive setting?…Yet still no footage of the brazen thief who stole these items in broad daylight.

    I also noticed other flaws with the system, such as I would view a car drive down the street and it would disappear midway through it. I am pretty disappointed with this system, the software was difficult to deal with too, especially when trying to scroll to a point in a video, it either did it or completely ignored my request. I called the cops and one of the first things they did when they arrived was point at the camera and say “that didn’t pick it up?” I was so EMBARRASSED. No, no it did not pick it up (I do have some lovely footage of trees in the wind that it DID pick up though). I paid so much for this system and it was basically like having nothing at all. I now have no choice but to have it on “always record” because the motion sensor is so horribly unreliable. I have lost faith in Zosi and thought their product was higher quality than this.

    G̶o̶o̶d̶ Bad hardware, Bad software., October 23, 2017

    By Drayhoss

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    This review is from: ZOSI 8CH Security Camera System HD-TVI Full 1080P Video DVR Recorder with 4X HD 1920TVL 1080P Indoor Outdoor Weatherproof CCTV Cameras 1TB Hard Drive,Motion Alert, Smartphone, PC Easy Remote Access (Electronics)

    The GOOD.
    1. Nice looking product; not cheaply constructed
    2. Easy to physically install.
    3. Video is clear and focused.
    4. Night vision is very good.
    5. Cables were of an adequate length.
    Summary: Good hardware.

    The BAD.
    1. Instructions are poor. Some functionality and setup functions are not described at all.
    2. The motion detection simply does not work:
    At times I’ll get one email every minute from the same camera when there has been no motion at all, then no emails when a person walks in front of it. This is happening without me changing the sensitivity. I began receiving one email per minute about an hour ago after having received none all day. It’s possible I have something configured wrong, but the small amount of documentation provided doesn’t describe proper configuration.
    3. The DVR unit reboots two to three times per day.
    4. Sometimes it is not possible to connect with the mobile app.
    Summary: Bad software.

    If I have any trouble at my house, I’ll have to search the video to find it since motion detection alerts do not work properly. My money is gone, so I have no choice but to work with what I have. When I buy a system for my barn, it’ll be a different one, hopefully with software/firmware which functions properly..

    -EDIT-
    One month later:
    One camera now displays only a black and white picture, and I am receiving NO motion alerts. So my original statement that the hardware is good was very wrong. I’ve contacted the manufacturer by email after they offered to replace the DVR and my messages have been ignored. This system is crudely built JUNK.

    Protect what you have worked hard for!, September 12, 2015

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    This review is from: ZOSI 8-Channel FULL 1080P HD-TVI Video Security System CCTV DVR 1TB Hard Drive + 8 Indoor/Outdoor 2.0MP 1920TVL Weatherproof Surveillance Security Camera System, Smartphone, PC Easy Remote Access (Electronics)

    Our peaceful safe neighborhood has recently become a target for crime. Houses and cars have been broken into almost daily. So we decided to purchase a security system before we were hit. This was our 1st ever security camera purchase. I did not know anything about how to pick one so I did a lot of research and eventually decided on this one. We got the 8camera and 500gb hard drive.
    It arrived fast and great packaging.
    Hookup was a bit challenging and time consuming (maybe because this was our 1st) but took a while to get the cords ran. So patience is a plus for all brands I would assume not just this one. But soon that time consuming part was worth it. The picture is crystal clear even in pitch dark. We. Couldn’t believe how good it was in night vision. Daytime is just as clear. We have it hooked up to a computer screen that was not being used and its perfect. We have recommended it to everyone . great system, crystal clear pictures and good customer service.
    Luckily,we have not caught anyone trying to break in our stuff that we have worked hard for many years to get. But if we do we will be ready.
    Although we have not caught burglars we have caught wildlife on camera. We live in the country/woods type of area and have seen our daily visit from our neighborhood bear as well as raccoon and opposums. I am attaching a pic of the night vision and one of our bear sightings. We only have up 5 of the cameras right now. The pictures are pictures of the screen with my phone but still pretty good quality.
