Zeiss com­pact... with Light­room

Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

JUST as many jour­nal­ists were head­ing home, Zeiss pulled an­other sur­prise out of the hat: a full-frame ZX1 com­pact cam­era, fea­tur­ing a new Distagon 35mm f/2 lens and 37.4MP full-frame sen­sor, with Light­room CC built-in. It’s a fixed-lens com­pact in the same class as the Sony Cy­ber-shot RX1R II and Le­ica Q, and has tra­di­tional ana­logue con­trols, with top-plate shut­ter speed and ISO di­als com­ple­mented by aper­ture and fo­cus rings around the lens. Com­po­si­tion is via an OLED viewfinder, and the back is dom­i­nated by a 4.3in multi-touch screen. The big news, though, is that the touch­screen can be used to op­er­ate the in­te­grated Light­room CC. The ZX1 comes out early 2019, so head to www. zeiss.com/ zx1 for up­dates.

Next year sees the re­lease of the ZX1 full-frame com­pact
