An Android camera: this is the Zeis ZX1
This camera represents a change of direction for Zeiss, thus entering the field of digital cameras for the first time, using a custom version of Android. Although so far no details have been given about the Android functions that will be present in the camera, so we have to wait to know more.
One feature of the Zeiss ZX1 is that it gives shortcut to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC in the same. Which will allow users to edit photos directly on the camera, before sending them to the computer or phone. The support for WiFi, Bluetooth and NFC present in the camera makes it possible. So it can allow for quick editing and convenient transfer.
This camera has a 37.4 Mpx sensor, which stands out for being larger than the sensor present in any smartphone. This should allow the Zeiss camera to be able to capture better photos than many of the most prominent Android phones, such as the Galaxy S20, Huawei P40 or the Google Pixel. In addition, it has a Distagon fixed lens with 35 mm f / 2.0 aperture and a 4.3-inch touch screen with which it will be possible to shoot, edit and share. The Zeiss camera can record 4K videos at 30 fps and Full HD videos at 60 fps. It also has a total of 512GB of storage space and USB-C connectivity on board.
Although it is presented as an interesting camera, especially due to the presence of Android in it, the $ 6,000 price makes it too expensive and it may not have a large market presence. For now it is only possible to reserve this Zeiss ZX1, so when it comes out we may know more about how they have adapted and used the operating system in it.
