Sony RX1

 Sony RX1 | 1/30 sec, f/2, ISO 6400 Got my hands on a brand spanking new Sony RX1 this evening! Despite the high price and the little time I’ve actually spent with this camera so far, I can already tell the RX1 is going to make some waves. It’s basically a point and shoot, and in practice […]
