If you’re a serious shooter that wants your pictures to be crystal clear, http://sony.com” target=”_blank”>Sony’s got a new toy for you. Just released, this new version of their full-frame Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 compact is identical in almost every way – even its $2,799.99 sticker price – except for the lack of an optical low-pass filter on the sensor, which allows you to shoot sharper photos. Besides the lack of the anti-aliasing filter in front of the sensor, the RX1R is the RX1’s twin; intended to be more of a “special edition” of the original camera that was first released last fall. Inside its body, the camera has a 24-megapixel full frame CMOS sensor, 1080p/60p video recording, an ISO range of 10-25600, 5fps continuous shooting, and 14-bit RAW files. All together, Sony believes that the RX1R – with the “R” standing for resolution – will “bring new levels of realism to landscapes and other finely-detailed subjects.” You can pick up your own version of this finely-detailed subject beginning in July 2013 via the http://store.sony.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&productId=8198552921666577588″ target=”_blank”>Sony online store.
