Delivers top-notch image quality, but the autofocus behaved unpredictably, the zoom range is limited, and the price is high.

Manufacturer’s Description

The bigger the imager, the better the image. That's why the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-R1 incorporates an APS-class image sensor more than 12 times the size of the typical sensor. You will get high sensitivity, low noise and a phenomenal 10.3 Megapixels of resolution. This is the world's first camera to combine an APS-class sensor with Live Preview of the scene, so you can compose your shot with full framing, exposure and white balance accuracy.
