The Zeiss ZX1 is quite the unique camera, being a full frame body with a fixed lens, a supersize touchscreen, and Lightroom built in. This video takes a first look at the camera.
In fairness, it's a Zeiss-branded video that's obviously quite promotional, but it's still interesting to see the camera in action, particularly with its very large touchscreen that allows you to use Lightroom on the camera itself. Its closest cousin is probably the Sony RX1R II, another full frame camera with a fixed 35mm f/2 lens, but the similarities stop there, as the Zeiss is aiming for something else entirely.
Personally, I have a hard time getting on board with the camera. While it's certainly novel and interesting, the ability to just pull my SD card and be editing in seconds on my iPad, which is super light and thin anyway, but with a much larger screen and presumably more processing power, seems to make the ZX1 a camera that's solving a problem I don't have. But that's just me. I do love the idea of a camera running a mobile OS like Android, though, as it makes me dream of an app store for photographers.
What do you think? Are you interested in the Zeiss ZX1?
