Mark from Sony shows us the exploded view of the Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 and goes over the sensor, the body build, lens and the stand-out specs that make this camera such a winner for Sony this year. Mark shows us the two eye level viewfinder options for the RX-1, the Carl Zeiss optical viewfinder and the electronic OLED viewfinder. Mark also clues us in on Sony’s new microphone option for the RX-1 that will connect via the camera’s hotshoe.
