We’re continuing to work through our Zeiss ZX1 review, and have just finalized the studio scene images – here they are! While we’re less impressed with the camera’s JPEG engine, we have to say, in Raw mode, that 35mm F2 lens really shines. Check out the chart’s far corners to see how it compares against other fixed-lens, large sensor cameras.

But regarding the JPEG images, after multiple attempts, what you see here was the best white balance we could get the custom white balance function to give. And, since the camera lacks the option to manually adjust the green/magenta ‘tint’ axis, we had no way of improving on it. This isn’t an issue if you process the DNGs in-camera, of course, as Lightroom provides much more subtle correction tools.

Stay tuned for some more ZX1 review content, coming shortly.
