Announced in 2018, we’re indirectly starting to accumulate a glance at the $6,000 Zeiss ZX1. The digital camera is designed to be a recount clutch, edit, and piece machine, and as such runs Lightroom Mobile generous on the rear LCD.
Open air of developing edits to photos all for your Apple or Android smartphone, so some distance it’s been much less total for photographers to recount Lightroom Mobile because the valuable editing platform for photos all for a fat-dimension digital camera. The Zeiss ZX1 is designed and built to actively bustle counter to this vogue. As a fat-dimension standalone digital camera, it’s theoretically righteous of taking photos which may per chance per chance well very neatly be unheard of better than what that it is doubtless you’ll accumulate out of a smartphone. At the identical time, it runs a modified Android operating machine meaning it is some distance going to natively bustle Adobe Lightroom Mobile – the applying comes built-in.
In the video above, DPReview shows what it appears like to scheme edits and add those files to online cloud storage. The rear LCD on the ZX1 in all equity mountainous and affords what is doubtless ample home for fast edits to photos all for the digital camera. From what DPReview shows of the project, the controls for making edits appear hasty and responsive, though the digital camera is a chunk unhurried to import, export, and camouflage performed edits.
It’s no longer going to blow you away with its performance, but the “workflow” offered here is going to be irregular. The last essential time we saw a digital camera designed a associated to what’s shown here predates Lightroom Mobile as an application: the Samsung Galaxy NX.
Seven years after that digital camera, the ZX1 is all over again attempting to opt a glance at the basis of a single, standalone digital camera righteous of taking pictures, editing, and sharing.
As a plight product with a really high $6,000 designate, the ZX1 smooth appears promising. No longer much less than from a workflow point of view, there may per chance be loads to like here.
