Disclamer by The Black Light Studios

As we all know, that the Sony Alpha Series mirrorless cameras are one of the best camera line introduced in the digital world of Photography, Cinematography, Filmmaking, Vlogging and many more.

Sony claims to have the best Auto-Focus mirrorless cameras in the world. Which they proved in their Sony Alpha Series Mirrorless Cameras. According to me and what I have seen through my own eyes and experience they are right to claim this title. While they have already launched many several best mirroless cameras we have seen their improvement in each one of them.

Sony Introducing Their New Mirrorless Camera

On 26, January, 2021. Sony on their live stream introduces their new full frame mirrorless camera in their Sony Alpha Series Camera. The newly launched full frame mirrorless camera is called Sony Alpha 1 (Sony A1).

Sony Introducing Their New Sony Alpha 1 (Sony A1) Livestream.

As I told earlier that we have seen improvements in each and every launched cameras by sony especially, their infamous Sony Alpha Series. So, now let’s see what have they improved in their newly launched Sony Alpha 1 (Sony A1) Fullframe Mirrorless Camera by going through it’s features and specification.

Overview, Specifications And Features: Sony Alpha 1 (Sony A1)

Sony Alpha 1 (Sony A1)

With all-new key devices and technology, the α1 offers high resolution and unprecedented speed combined with sensitivity and dynamic range that can bring the creator’s vision to life. All of this is backed up by professional features and workflow that make it possible to deliver stills and movies for a new era of visual communication.

Features Of Sony Alpha 1 (Sony A1):

50.1 megapixel Exmor RS image sensor

The α1 (Alpha 1/ A1) features a full-frame stacked back-illuminated CMOS Exmor RS sensor with 50.1 effective megapixels and integrated memory. In addition to delivering outstanding image quality, this allows the α1 to shoot continuously at up 30 frames per second while offering fast, precise phase-detection AF and top-quality 8K movies with full-frame 8.6K oversampling for the first time in the α series (Alpha Seires). Unprecedented performance for a new era of image making.

Advanced BIONZ XR engine boosts speed by up to 8x

The α1 features a revised system architecture with greatly enhanced processing performance from image capture through all signal processing stages. Processing latency is minimised while image processing power is dramatically increased for extraordinary image quality. User interface, network, and file management processing is distributed so that fast, stress-free control response is maintained regardless of real-time processing load.

Continuous shooting at up to 30fps

High-speed readout from the 50.1-megapixel image sensor and a large buffer memory makes it possible to shoot up to approximately 165 full-frame JPEG images  or 155 full-frame compressed RAW images at up to 30 frames per second with the electronic shutter while maintaining full AF and AE tracking performance. This can be a huge confidence-booster when timing is critical for sports and other moving subjects.

759 point full-area phase detection AF

759 phase detection points in a high-density focal plane phase-detection AF system cover approximately 92% of the image area, ensuring accuracy and unfailing focus in scenes where focusing might otherwise be difficult. The 759-point focal plane phase-detection AF system works with a 425-point contrast AF system to ensure precise AF operation in any environment.

Stunning realism with 8K 30p movies

For the first time in the α series, the α1 offers 8K 30p XAVC HS recording with 8.6K oversampling for extraordinary resolution and realism. Combined with superior α1 AF, gradation, and colour reproduction performance, 8K resolution brings the world to life. 8K footage is also ideally suited to flexible 4K editing. Low-bit-rate proxy files with HD resolution can be recorded simultaneously with 8K.

Full pixel readout without binning for high-res 4K

Full frame and Super 35 formats can be selected for 4K movie recording. Full pixel readout in the Super 35 mode (approx. APS-C 16:9), without the need for pixel binning, makes it possible to condense approximately 2.3 times the amount of data required for 4K movies, resulting in high-resolution, high-detail 4K with minimal moiré and jaggies. Bit rates up to 600 Mbps can be used for 4K XAVC HS, XAVC S, and XAVC S-I recording.

S-Log3 and 10-bit HLG deliver extra depth

The S-Log3 gamma curve makes it possible to achieve 15+ stops of dynamic range, while the S-Gamut3 and S-Gamut3.Cine colour gamut settings make it easy to match α1 footage with footage shot on the VENICE digital cinema camera, PXW-FX9, and other professional camcorders. An HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) picture profile is also provided, allowing direct playback on an HDR (HLG) compatible TV without the need for colour grading.

4K movie recording at up to 120 frames per second

The α1 offers in-camera 4K recording at up to 120 frames per second. Extraordinarily smooth 5x (max.) slow-motion imagery at 4K resolution provides new expressive capability. In addition to supporting 10-bit 4:2:2 recording, this feature can be used with efficient Long GOP inter-frame compression or high-quality Intra (All-I) intra-frame compression.

S-Cinetone for that expressive cinematic look

The α1 includes S-Cinetone, the same colour matrix that produces the highly regarded FX9 and FX6 colour and skin tones. Based on technology acquired through development of Cinema Line cameras such as VENICE, S-Cinetone delivers natural mid-tones that are essential to healthy-looking skin colour, plus soft colours and gorgeous highlights. S-Cinetone responds to a growing need for more expressive depth.

Seamlessly switch full-frame and APS-C formats

M and S size images have the same number of pixels in the full-frame and APS-C modes, so you can switch seamlessly between full-frame [M:M21] and APS-C [M:M21], for example, while shooting the same scene. And because the full array of 759 phase detection points is available in APS-C mode as well as full-frame mode, you get the same smooth AF performance.

Fast USB Type-C and 1000BASE-T network connections

A USB Type-C® connector that supports fast SuperSpeed USB 10-Gbps (USB 3.2) data transfer is provided. This makes high-speed PC Remote (tethered) data transfer available for smooth handling of large image files. The α1 also has a built-in 1000BASE-T LAN connector for high-speed, stable data transfers, including remote shooting. FTPS (File Transfer over SSL/TLS) is supported, allowing SSL or TLS encryption for increased data security.

High-resolution viewfinder with the widest view in its class

A 9.44 million-dot (approx.) electronic viewfinder with high-definition OLED display and refined optics delivers the highest resolution in its class. It also offers 0.90x viewfinder magnification, a 41 ° diagonal FOV, and a 25-mm high eyepoint for clear, low-distortion viewing from corner to corner. This advanced viewfinder also features up to 240fps refresh rate with UXGA FOV for super-smooth display.

Two CFexpress Type A-compatible media slots

The α1 has two media slots that both support UHS-I and UHS-II SDXC/SDHC cards as well as new CFexpress Type A cards for higher overall capacity and faster read/write speeds. CFexpress Type A cards are ideally suited to high-speed continuous still shooting, as well as high-resolution, high-bitrate movie recording. Recorded stills and movies can be saved to the memory media in numerous ways, to match a wide range of applications and needs.

While there are many more great features introduced in Sony Alpha 1 (Sony a1) read article till the end for the link for full features in the mean time lets check out the specifications of the camera.
