In this news, we discuss the Zeiss ZX1 Android camera now available for pre-order.
Zeiss is a well-known optical manufacturer based in Germany. The company announced a single camera, Zeiss ZX1 two years ago in 2018. The Zeiss ZX1 is unique because it is an Android-powered full-frame camera on which you can edit files using Adobe Lightroom CC. Put simply, Zeiss ZX1 camera users can instantly take photos, edit, and share files on the go.
First noted by DPReview, the Zeiss ZX1 appeared on the site B&H Photo Video web saying that the new product is ‘coming’. On the same e-commerce site, the camera is priced at $ 6,000.00 which roughly translates to Rs 4,40,000. There is an option to “Pre-order” the camera or “Add to wishlist”.
As for the specs, the ZX1 camera has a 37.4 megapixel full-frame image sensor, a 35mm F2 fixed lens, an electronic viewfinder and three dials to control the camera. ISO, shutter speed and aperture. There is a 4.3 inch touchscreen that includes a built-in version of Adobe Lightroom. For connectivity, users have Wi-Fi and a USB-C port on the camera.
The Zeiss ZX1 was supposed to be released in early 2019 but it is now in 2020 that we had a sign of release very soon. In an interview with DPReview last year, Elliot Shih, Senior Product Manager at Zeiss, said: “A lot has happened in the industry as well – against the backdrop we are seeing higher penetration smartphones with more capable cameras, and people are adjusting to use the cameras in their phones. On the other hand, we have seen that there is a demand among photographers for more serious photography tools.
“The rise of the smartphone has had an impact on the point and shoot market, but there are a lot of benefits and things we can learn from such a different world. So the thought that came to my mind was – well, if we’re going to make a new kind of camera, it doesn’t make sense to copy something that’s already on the market – let’s do something again, ”Shih said.
So, when Zeiss ZX1 releases, it will be interesting to note how easy it would be to operate the camera.
