Zeiss is among the camera manufacturers and this obviously with some verve, because the mirrorless full format camera ZX1 presented at Photokina has several unusual features, including a Lightroom integration and a bent touch display. Unfortunately, there is no video focus -- after all, video recording is possible (4K/30fps, FHD/60fps).
The ZX1 has a fixed 35 mm f/2 ZEISS Distagon autofocus lens behind which a 37.4 megapixel full-format sensor is located -- allegedly developed by Zeiss itself (although we could rather imagine that it was developed according to Zeiss specifications). Sensor and optics should therefore be optimally matched to each other. An image stabilization is apparently missing.
The camera is mainly operated via a 4.3" or 10.9cm Multi-Touch display (1280x720), which is slightly angled at the right edge, where some control elements can be found. Also an OLED viewfinder (1920x1080) is available. It is recorded on a 512 GB internal memory; there is no card slot for removable memory. At interfaces WiFi, Bluetooth and USB-C are on board. Via the latter an external memory should be able to be completed.
The operating system is based on Android. As a special feature, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC was integrated, so that RAW photo files can be edited directly on the camera and then sent to the cloud. A functionality one is more used to from smartphones.
The camera will weigh about 800g, the dimensions are 142x93x46 plus 20mm for the optics. What the ZX1 is supposed to cost is not yet known, it should come at the beginning of 2018.
