Sony’s Alpha line of flagship cameras was first updated in 2021 and is called Alpha 1. The new Alpha 1 combines Sony’s best mirrorless cameras but offers the best photo and video quality the company has to offer.
Sony A1 has a 50.1 MP stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor in full screen mode, which also features a new and improved BIONZ XR image processor. The camera offers more than 15 dynamic range presets for video and an ISO range of 100-32,000 (up to 50-102400 for still images). With Sony’s improved Pixel Shift Multi Shooting mode, 199 MP images can also be created.
In addition, the new image processor lets you create full-resolution RAW images at 30 frames per second with a buffer large enough to hold 155 RAWs and 165 JPEGs.
Sony has updated the electronic viewfinder to keep up with any camera upgrades. The 0.64-inch quad XGA OLED display has a refresh rate of 240 Hz. This is a first for any camera in the world. It offers 0.9 times the viewfinder magnification and a viewing angle of 41 degrees. The main display, on the other hand, is a 3-inch LCD with touchscreen support and a tilting design (see image above).
The autofocus has also been improved and the camera now has 759 phase detection points with real-time eye autofocus for humans and animals. For the first time, the autofocus system also supports birds, and the new algorithm can maintain focus even if the bird suddenly flies.

Heating has become a problem as cameras get smaller and capture still images and higher resolution videos. According to Sony, the A1 can record 8K video for 30 minutes thanks to its new heat dissipation system, which can also be seen on the A7S III. Further improvements are on board, e.g. B. improved color science and stability for videos.
