It is a 3D rendering. Even if the structural details are all correctly represented, the hard part after that is giving the object convincing textures and nuanced lighting.

Perfect examples to make the point! Look at the textures and lighting nuances in those actual photos compared to the one first posted.

First pictures I took from Zeiss web site https://zx1.zeiss.com/
and for sure it's 3D.

It's in 2D on my computer screen, do I need a special apparatus to see it in 3D?


Edit: a Zeiss camera made in China? They better not ask for Leica price for it.
See my webpage!

Some might find this video by three blind men and an elephant interesting. They seem to emphasize photographic flow with this camera and the only connector is a USB-C port that does everything. I didn't see the screen size in this thread yet, it is a 4.3 inch screen.

Availability is by 'request information' link on the website.

I suspect they are still gauging what the prospective market will look like before actually launching to market.

I think it looks very neat, tidy and functional actually; as a "simple walk around" camera there's a lot to admire in changing or at least slightly shifting the typical paradigm of camera design and functionality.

best regards, Neil.

I think purely as a camera the ZX1 looks very "conventional" but the point is the integration with processing and using the images once taken. That's where this camera seems to have some unique features. Gauging interest isn't going to help them much (imho), they need to produce it and get it in the hands of some photographers who appreciate this integration and can start commenting about it. I think that's the only way they will drum up the real interest for all the new functionality it offers.
