The Zeiss ZX1 is a compact full-frame camera with a 37.4MP image sensor, fixed 35mm Distagon F2 lens and a huge 4.3" touchscreen with a resolution of 1280x720 pixels to augment its physical controls. Zeiss has also teamed up with Adobe to offer full Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC capability in the camera itself. The ZX1 is capable of capturing UHD 4K at up to 30 fps, and Full HD video at up to 60 fps.
The ZX1 does not have a memory card slot, but does come with 512GB of internal memory, which the company claims is enough to store approximately 6,800 Raw files in DNG format (or up to 50,000 JPEG files). It will offer Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB-C connectivity. The company will also offer over-the-air software updates.
