It’s been a bit of a journey for the Zeiss ZX1. Announced in 2018, teased in late 2019, and released last year (that feels weird), it’s a fully integrated camera, with a 37.4-megapixel full-frame sensor, built-in Zeiss Distagon 35mm f/2 T* lens and 512GB of internal storage. It shoots 4K UHD video at up to 30fps and 1080p up to 60fps, features built-in WiFi and Bluetooth and it’s powered by Android.
That last feature is possibly the most interesting thing about this camera, as it means that it can run Android apps. Apps like the bundled Lightroom CC that allows you to edit your images in-camera and share them straight to social media and your other devices. The folks at DPReview TV took one for a spin to show exactly how it works.
