Sony RX1R

In this episode of All About the Gear (AAtG), Frederick and Doug rendezvous at T-Rex in Berkeley, CA to have lunch and discuss Doug’s findings after giving the Sony RX1R a try.

This full frame Sony mirrorless camera looks to be positioned as a stiff competition for both the Leica and Fuji mirrorless offerings.

To dive even deeper into this camera, check out Doug’s full and detailed review.

Here are a some images Doug created with the Sony RX1R

  • I love AATG. Right on top of the up & coming small camera market. I’m in that market and will buy one next year and I am sure it will be something I saw here. right now the Fuji x100S is in first place

  • After watching this episode I find my self leaning more end more to Leica. They seem easier to use than the other mirrorless cameras and better built, cost more in dead presidents.

  • Thanks John D., Doug and I are trying to create the review show that “we” would want to watch. 🙂 I’m glad you’re getting something out of it.

  • Hi Frederick and Doug,

    Great job fellas. I really enjoyed the fact that you were able to present so much relevant information within such a relaxed and conversational format.

    Of course it’s always good to look upon a pretty face!

    For what it’s worth I’m following Doug’s previous advice to me to wait for the next full frame version, particularly if it will allow for interchangeable lenses. I have three mint Leica-M lenses just waiting for a new body to snuggle up to.

    All the best,

    Glenn Guy

  • Not yet… the show is currently available only on YouTube. But we’re strongly considering creating a separate feed.

  • This is the missing niche in photography podcasting. I’m betting if you went with a feed, you would have success right out of the gate.

  • I’d have to agree with you there. Doug and I met to day to discuss the topic of creating a proper podcast out of the show. We’re both bullish on the idea.

  • One of the real dangers of working in NYC is lunch hours at B&H. They don’t work on commission and you can play with the equipment all you like. The RX1R is a magnificent beast and I really enjoyed using it, The Fuji 100xs, on the other hand, generates the following impression : “I’m coming for you my precious!. We wants it, we needs it. Must have the precious.”

  • BTW I really like the format you are doing for gear reviews. I hope you do one on the Nikon AW1. I have also been looking at that one. I find myself drifting towards the rangefinders because I do not like video finders. Maybe because I work with video. Also I like solid cameras, must be the Nikon F2 curse. My walk around camera is a D3. 😉 You guys have a very informative show.

  • Might I suggest (or request) that if you do publish a feed, you be sure to release the first five episodes as well, and then add new installments as they become available?

  • Is there an audio (MP3) version of this podcast available via subscription? If so, what is the URL? Thanks!

  • Great review on the RX1R, yes, way too expensive, I have an NEX-7 and love it hope they upgrade the NEX to a full frame sensor sometime in the future.
