Sony ILX-LR1 Camera Officially Announced

By on

Sony officially announced the new Sony ILX-LR1 Industrial Camera. The US price is $2,950 and it will be released in September 2023. The new Sony ILX-LR1 is now listed at B&H.

The new ILX-LR1 is an interchangeable lens camera designed for industrial use with approximately 61 megapixels 35 mm full-frame image sensor. With high resolution and in a lightweight, compact form, it is ideal for inspection, investigation, surveying, and mapping by drone.  Offering up to 4K UHD video at 60fps and support for S-Log3 Picture Profile, the ILX-LR1 could also be an ideal choice for live streaming event coverage, multi-camera remote shooting and other video applications where space is limited or an angle is suitable for mounting.

The Sony ILX-LR1 measures 10 x 7.4 x 4.25cm (3.9 x 2.9 x 1.7 in.) and features a radically different set of physical features compared to a traditional Sony Alpha camera, including screw points on all surfaces to help with various mounting options. The camera does not have a battery and accepts DC power for long, continuous operating time.

The Power and Control Terminal allows for complete remote operation of the camera, including image capture, focus control and more. The ILX-LR1 has a single UHS-II SD card slot, a USB-C port and a micro-HDMI port.

The new Sony ILX-LR1 will be available in September 2023 with an MSRP of $2,950.
