Hugh Brownstone: Zeiss ZX1

Hugh Brownstone makes an interesting point in his latest video about the Zeiss ZX1 and I have to agree with him. Zeiss is the only company to release a professional camera tailored to suit the needs of the next generation of photographers. He manages to get a few more small details out of the Zeiss rep, but I have to agree with him. I want one in my hands now. Below are some excerpts from the above video:

  • Zeiss used to make cameras and have considered a camera like this for a while
  • Photographers care the most about creative flow
  • People want to get from intent to execution asap
  • Zeiss included the exposure triangle on physical buttons
  • 4.3″ diagonal display and it’s the biggest of any camera
  • You need the space for editing and review
  • Adobe Lightroom partnership that syncs with adobe creative cloud so you can edit on the camera or the computer
  • Doesn’t sound like they did anything special for glare and the back screen
  • 4k 30p/24p
  • USB-C for charging/transferring/displaying photos
  • It does video but it’s photographer-centric
  • The bright yellow markings are from their cinematography background and helps with visibility, but it doesn’t glow
  • 512GB of memory in camera
