It’s been two years since Zeiss announced ZX1, a full-frame Android-powered camera. The announcement was followed by a lot of questions, and it looks like all of them will be answered at last, since the Zeiss ZX1 has finally become available for preorders.
It’s been a minute since we last heard anything about the Lightroom-powered Zeiss ZX1 camera. Almost a whole year, in fact. It was first announced rather quietly at Photokina 2018 last September followed by a brief hands-on in December, but since then it’s been radio silence.
Now it looks like it might be one step closer to actually being released after support for its DNG files was added to the latest Adobe Camera Raw 12.1 update.
When Zeiss announced the Android-powered ZX1 back in September, It was met with a bit of a mixed reaction, and a lot of questions. No card slots? Why put Lightroom in a camera? Can the screen even be calibrated? How does the CC subscription factor into this? And, is it actually any good?
Well, Zeiss have put out the first video covering the use of the new camera. To do so, they enlisted the help of German freelance photographer Sabrina Weniger, in the streets of Düsseldorf’s Little Tokyo.
