My thoughts on the Sony A1 digital camera

I am excited for this camera, I currently shoot with a pair of A9, the anti-flicker electronic shutter and flash with shutter are two great improvements for me.

I am excited for this camera, I currently shoot with a pair of A9, the anti-flicker electronic shutter and flash with shutter are two great improvements for me.

When banding happens in theatre performances I have to reduce my shutter speed, which then means I cannot freeze fast action. The mechanical shutter on the A9 which might help a little here is too clunky to consider.

I look forward to some ISO comparisons, it’s said to have a back-illuminated sensor which typically means good low light – I hope it’s a decent improvement on the Sony A9. That combined with 50MP for cropping will be great for sport even with my 100-400 f4.0-f5.6 lens.

I see it also has a pixel shift multi shooting features for a 199 MP image, it combines up to 16 shots, if the camera shoots at up to 30 fps – could it produce a 199MP image in less than a second? I wonder. (or, hold that thought…. hah)

The 9.44 million dot OLED EVF, at 240fps, sounds great, I hope it improves the experience there.

The Sony A1 appears to be the camera that does it all with an unfortunate price to match. I was in the middle of selling some camera gear, saving up for a Leica Monochrom camera perhaps – but now that’s on hold so I can buy a pair of Sony A1 cameras.

Surely I cannot want for more when it comes to a professional camera. My Sony A9 never inspired me to shoot it outside of work, I hope the Sony A1 can ignite that spark, and save me money in the future.
