Sony has introduced the Alpha 1 mirrorless digicam, a digicam that mixes all of Sony’s high applied sciences into one physique, making a 50-megapixel digicam that may seize stills at as much as 30 frames per second, blackout-free, in addition to 8K video.
The Sony Alpha 1 is a mix/condensation of all of Sony’s most superior applied sciences into one physique. It contains a new 50.1-megapixel full-frame Exmor RS CMOS picture sensor together with an upgraded BIONZ XR imaging processing engine with eight occasions extra processing energy in comparison with the BIONZ X processor.
It could actually shoot as much as 30 frames per second – the quickest capturing velocity ever – blackout-free whereas additionally mixed with Sony’s autofocus know-how that allows as much as 120 autofocus calculations per second, which is double the velocity of the a9 II.
That fifty.1-megapixel sensor is able to 15-stops of dynamic vary and doesn’t sacrifice any previously-expected ISO efficiency.
Even with this sensor’s excessive pixel depend, the Alpha 1 presents excessive sensitivity with low noise, plus 15+ stops of dynamic vary for video and 15 stops for stills, for clean, pure gradations from shadows to highlights because of its cutting-edge processing system, all through a large ISO sensitivity vary of 100-32,000 (expandable to 50-102,400, when capturing stills).
Moreover, the Alpha 1 contains a massive-resolution OLED viewfinder: 0.64-type 9.44 million-dot (approx.) OLED Quad-XGA digital viewfinder with the world’s first refresh fee of 240 fps.
It additionally contains a silent, vibration-free digital shutter that options the world’s first anti-flicker capturing with each mechanical and digital shutter. Moreover, the Alpha 1 is able to digital shutter flash sync as much as 1/200 second and as much as 1/400 second with the mechanical shutter (this extends to 1/500 when capturing in APS-C crop mode) because of what the corporate is looking its “twin pushed shutter.”
The Alpha 1 options 759 AF factors with 92% protection of the sensor, which exceeds the A9 sequence. IT additionally provides real-time eye-AF for hen images, and general real-time monitoring has been improved for extra dependable monitoring and could be finished as closed down as f/22.
Sony additionally mentions that the Alpha 1 is a “skilled film digicam” as it’s able to 8K video at as much as 30 frames per second, a primary within the Alpha line. It’s 8K video is captured by oversampling 8.6K right down to 8K (oversampling and condensing is a trademark of Sony video options). Moreover, it may well shoot at as much as 4Kp120 in 10 bit 4:2:2: All-I compression. Oversampled, higher-quality 4K can also be accessible in Tremendous 35 mode.
The Alpha 1 additionally helps S-Cinetone, which is on the cinema line, which delivers cinema coloration, in addition to 10-bit S-Log3 which delivers 15+ stops of dynamic vary. The digicam additionally, in fact, helps HLG.
As anticipated, the a2 additionally helps 5-axis optical in-body picture stabilization for five.5 stops of stabilization and a heat-dissipating construction for prolonged recording: half-hour in 4Kp60 or 8K. It could actually additionally export 16-bit uncooked video through HDMI.
The Alpha 1 has two media slots that each assist UHS-I and UHS-II SDXC/SDHC playing cards, in addition to new CFexpress Sort A playing cards for greater general capability and sooner learn/write speeds. It additionally contains a sturdy magnesium alloy chassis, lengthy battery life with the Z-battery which could be prolonged utilizing the non-obligatory VG-C4EM Vertical Grip (bought individually), an improved mud removing characteristic, shutter shut perform on power-off to guard picture sensor, plus mud and moisture resistance that maximizes reliability in difficult environments. It features a sturdy, dependable HDMI Sort-A connector, and USB PD (Energy Supply) assist, permitting greater energy to be equipped from an exterior supply in order that customers can file for prolonged intervals with minimal inside battery utilization.
The Sony Alpha 1 can be accessible in March of 2021 for $6,500.
