Sony DSC-R1: 10.3 Megapixel with Zeiss 24mm Lens


The new Sony Cyber-shot R1 digital camera combines a large 10.3 effective Megapixel CMOS sensor, and a 24mm - 120mm (35mm) ZEISS Zoom lens in the same body.

Large Size 10.3 effective Megapixel CMOS

Sony promises top-class image quality through the inclusion of a large-sized Sony CMOS image sensor (effective 21.5mm x 14.4mm), designed to significantly improve dynamic range, sensitivity, and signal-to-noise ratio. Picture blur is significantly reduced because of the camera's high sensitivity capability, with noise being simultaneously reduced as a result of the newly developed Clear RAW NR feature.

Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T

The dedicated 24mm-120mm (35mm) wide-angle zoom lens of the Cyber-shot R1 is integrated into the body of the camera. With its F2.8-4.8 aperture, the camera is designed to exacting specifications for optimum performance.

Cyber-shot R1 also allows the last lens to be positioned immediately in front of the CMOS sensor, contributing to a reduction in chromatic aberration. On the Cyber-shot R1 this distance has been reduced to 2.1mm.

The camera is capable of taking a macro of a butterfly, zooming in on an object in the distance, and then taking a wide-angle landscape shot, all within a few seconds without the need for changing lenses.

Free-Angle LCD to shoot like no other

The inclusion of a large 2.0-inch "Over Head" free-angle LCD screen, facilitates a revolutionary approach to shooting with the Cyber-shot R1. Combined with the ultra-bright (luminance 600 Cd/m2) screen, the swivel action allows you to shoot from horizontal or vertical levels, high or low angles or waist height.

High sensitivity for reduced blur

The Clear RAW NR original algorithm system reduces colour and luminance noise, enabling shooting with significantly higher sensitivity than current Cyber-shot models, using a selectable ISO sensitivity mode (up to ISO 3200). This ensures images with less noise and finer detail.



A.G.C.S for rich colours and optimal contrast

The Cyber-shot R1 features an Advanced Gradation Control System to obtain optimal image contrast. The capability to evaluate distribution of the brightness on-screen and apply an appropriate Gamma curve (luminance distribution) means that images can be altered in real-time for a clearly defined image.

Choose your JPEG colour mode

Users now have a choice of three colour modes on the Cyber-shot R1:
- Standard (sRGB): a Sony-developed colour arithmetic process used on all Cyber-shot cameras. - Vivid (sRGB): lowers brightness and emphasises primary colour depth for impressive results with Reds, Greens and Blues, rather like a saturated slide film.
- Adobe RGB: increased gamut (colour range) for a larger colour space and better reproduction, to meet professional and high quality picture environments such as desktop publishing with Adobe Photoshop.

Image Data Converter SR for picture adjustment flexibility

RAW mode is also available for the most demanding users, allowing the highest picture quality with no compression, and preserving the original RGB data and camera settings. The supplied RAW development software incorporates fast processing, display and development, with improved operability such as dual view and navigator windows.

Share The Cyber-shot R1 also features PictBridge, the standard for printing directly to photo printers, such as the Sony DPP-FP50. Pictures can be printed conveniently with the USB Direct Print option.

The Cyber-shot R1 will be available throughout Europe from mid- November 2005.
