    Zeiss ZX1 - Ascetic Full-Frame Camera

      News

    During this year's Photokina trade fair, the legendary Zeiss presented a full-frame compact ZX1, in this way confirming the rumors about entering the scope of camera producers that we'd been hearing for a long time.

     

    Zeiss ZX1 is a compact camera enclosed in a very modern and maximally simplified housing. The only two "sticking-out” elements are the shutter speed knob and the ISO sensitivity knob.

     

    The camera is equipped with the 37.4MP sensor and the Distagon 35mm f/2 lens, whose optical lenses have been covered with antireflective T coatings. The camera will take photographs with the speed of 3f/s and, as the producer assures, these photographs should be of perfect quality. The camera's viewfinder has been made in the OLED technology – it has Full HD resolution and 0.74× zoom.

    1). Zeiss ZX1 

     

    Zeiss ZX1 has a chance to become a revolutionary device in terms of operating the camera as well as its mobility and connection with a widely-understood media world. Nearly all operations can be performed on a big 4.3'' LCD screen which is to work without any delays. The camera will connect with the Internet and send photographs to the chosen platforms without involving other devices. As for now, we don't know on what basis the connectivity with the Internet will work.

    2). Zeiss ZX1 

     

    The camera is to offer 512GB of in-built memory in which we will store up to 7 thousand RAW files or even 50 thousand JPEG ones. A true revolution and a proof of the extraordinary efficiency of the camera's hardware should be the implementation of Adobe Lightroom CC, thanks to which we will be able to perform the advanced processing of our photographs without a need to transfer them onto a computer. ZX1 enables Wi-Fi connectivity and Bluetooth – it is equipped with the USB-C connector.

     

    As for now, we don't know the price of Zeiss ZX1 and its availability date (unofficial news say that it should take place in the first months of 2019). The price, irrespective of the currency, will be counted in the numbers of suitcased packed with banknotes.

      Universal lenses with the focal length of 40mm always find many supporters. This should't surprise anyone taking into account a wide spectrum of uses. Soon, to the joy of the users of mirrorless Sony cameras, the 40mm f/2 close focus lens will appear in the Zeiss offer.
       

      1). Zeiss Batis 40mm F2 CF
       
      The optical system of the lens is based on 9 lenses placed in 8 groups. Sharp photographs can be taken from the distance of 24cm with the 1:3,3 zoom. The lens is equipped with the autofocus and we will find a backlit OLED screen, which informs about the focus distance. 
       

      2). Zeiss Batis 40mm F2 CF
       
      The body of the lens has been sealed. The filters with the diameter of 67mm can be mounted on the front lens. The lens is relatively small, its dimensions are 93 × 91mm and it weighs 361g.
       
      The lens should cost €1299.
