Usually, the combination 1A stands for the best - because the first number and the first letter of the alphabet are a guarantee of quality. Zeiss proves that there are other ways of doing things with the ZX1. The German optical expert's mirrorless camera with 37.4 megapixels not only shifts the alphabetical order in favor of a new quality classification. It also turns photography upside down. With a high-resolution full-format sensor, fixed 35-millimeter lens, but above all with integrated storage, editing and upload solutions.
With 512 gigabytes of internal memory, memory cards are no longer necessary, integrated Adobe Lightroom eliminates the need for computer image editing, and advanced connectivity allows users to post directly from the camera. In the twinkling of an eye and via the touchscreen with Android operating system. But the ZX1 also strikes traditional notes: An aperture ring on the lens, mechanical dials for modes and exposure time. You’ve seen right: With its completely reduced design, the ZX1 also has a bend in the optics. But only in the body, not in the fast Distagon lens, which is based on 174 years of experience.
