Sony just announced its 35mm sensor full frame camera in a true compact body making it the world’s first digital camera to have such sensor and size combo. It has the Exmor 24.3 megapixels sensor found on bigger Sony Alpha cameras that is expected to deliver the same detail and clarity. The camera has a fixed non-interchangeable Carl-Zeiss Sonnar T* 35mm F2.0 prime lens with macro mode that will surely be receiving a nod from some photographers.

The company said that the RX1 will be available this December in Europe so expect it to be available in our local shelves probably after a month, we’ll announce if we can get an official statement from Sony Philippines.
