TCSTV: Sony DSC-R1 Unsung Cameras of Yesteryear

The Camera Store TV published a throwback episode of one of the first mirrorless cameras the Sony DSC-R1. This was a pretty exceptional camera, featuring an APS-C sensor and waste level style viewfinder LCD that many would love to have today. They are actually still available today used on Amazon for a very reasonable price if you really want a digital waste level viewfinder camera and I have to say I find the colors very pleasing compared to modern Sony colors. Maybe Sony can build a modern DSC-R1 with a full frame sensor and superzoom like the RX10. That would be an incredibly interesting camera to own.
