Sony Alpha 1, or A1, flagship full-frame mirrorless camera is now available in India. It’s Sony’s most advanced (and expensive) consumer-grade camera yet and offers the best of the Sony A7S III and A7R IV, along with a lot more features — all in a single camera. This is Sony’s first Alpha series camera to be able to shoot 8K video, Eye AF for birds, and the presence of S-Cinetone colour profile for video from its FX line of cinema cameras.
Sony Alpha 1 is targeted strictly at professional photographers and videographers, that need a high-resolution sensor, very fast burst shooting, and next-gen resolution for filming. At the heart of Sony Alpha 1 is its new 50.1-megapixel stacked sensor, that is powered by an upgraded Bionz XR image processor.
The resolution is a bit lower than Sony A7R IV’s 61-megapixel sensor, but it’s still a big upgrade over the 24-megapixel sensors we’ve mostly seen in the Alpha lineup. It also boasts of an impressive electronic viewfinder (EVF) with a maximum refresh rate of 240fps (at UXGA resolution) and 30fps burst shooting of up to 155 full-frame compressed RAW images with AF/AE tracking and no blackouts.
