With an impressive new 50.1MP Exmor RS full-frame sensor, the Sony a1 can capture images with up to 15-stops of dynamic range. With this camera in hand, landscape photographers can now put the Sony a7R IV aside. With the back-illuminated design with integrated memory, high image clarity is a given at any ISO sensitivity - even at ISO 102400. In addition to landscape photographers, sports and wildlife photogs will undoubtedly be in line for this flagship camera—the reason: the new stacked Exmor RS BSI CMOS sensor produces a high frame-rate at lightning speeds. Capable of 30 frames per second, the Sony a1 goes beyond previous alpha models to deliver a tandem effort of focus accuracy and fast frame rate. Having said this, the sensor doesn't stop at photography. Sony's development has put hours into making this the ultimate cinematography tool capable of capturing buttery smooth full-frame 8.6K video.

 

Sony's Delivering Super Fast Processing thanks to the BIONZ XR Processor

While the BIONZ XR Processor sounds like something out of a Terminator movie, the benefits outweigh the title. Sony has managed to include processing speeds that are eight times faster than previous models. Plus there's been a huge reduction in rolling shutter for video and a better file management system at faster speeds.


The New Shutter Proves a Perfect Match Videographers and Sports and Wildlife Photographers

Sony is leading the way in sensor design, which has led to breakthroughs in shutter and camera technology. Some of these include:

High-speed shooting up to 30 frames per second at full 50.1MP resolution.

Full autofocus and auto-exposure capabilities when working with an electronic shutter.

A mechanical shutter that's capable of speeds as high as ten frames per second.

Sports and wildlife photographers can keep shooting thanks to a large buffer. The buffer can record up to 155 compressed RAW files or 165 JPEGs in one single burst at 30 frames per second.

A state-of-the-art blackout-free viewfinder that's perfect for high-speed shooting.

Completely silent shooting experience when using the electronic viewfinder.

Anti-flicker shooting when photographing under fluorescent, LED or similar lights even at 30 fps or 120 fps.

The a1 shutter is now capable of an electronic shutter flash sync at 1/200 second. The mechanical shutter can sync at 1/400 second (full-frame) or 1/500 second (APS-C).
