The good folks over at Sony are back at it yet again. This time around, they return with a look at their most advanced mirrorless camera yet. Today we get our first look at the Alpha 1. The new device is capable of continuous photo shooting at 30 photos per second, boasting a new 50.1-megapixel full-frame sensor.
Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, it’s also able to record in 8K video at 30 fps. Sony is looking to change the game and making the Alpha 1 its flagship camera was an obvious move in the right direction. The company promises those who buy the Alpha 1 will be boasting “the most technologically advanced, innovative camera” of its lineup.
The Alpha 1 allows users to shoot “up to 155 full-frame compressed RAW images or 165 full-frame JPEG images at up to 30 frames per second with the electronic shutter while maintaining AF and AE tracking performance.” The Eye AF has been refined, adding “optimized algorithms ensure that tracking is maintained even if a sitting bird suddenly takes flight, or the framing suddenly changes.”
Sony also claims that users will get the world’s first high-res OLED electronic viewfinder that hosts a refresh rate of 240Hz. Elsewhere the Alpha 1 is host to five-axis, in-body image stabilization, and a standard ISO range between 100-32,000 with the ability to expand to 50-102,400 ISO range. The camera also features an upgraded flash sync speeds to 1/400 sec with the mechanical shutter. Sony also says that users can fully unlock the 30 fps continuous shooting.
