Sony has announced a new "pro-level" body - the Sony A1. This camera is one of the most impressively designed cameras ever produced. It features a 50 megapixel sensor, 30 fps burst shooting rate and 8k video recording. I've had the opportunity to shoot with this camera for the last 6 days and while I've not had time to go thru everything, I want to talk about image quality. This is the camera that literally does everything.

This is probably the best sensor Sony has produced to date. The dynamic range and sensitivity are incredible for a high resolution sensor. The processor is extremely impressive with noise handling as well at higher ISO's. So here's an overview of some of my favorite features in this camera so far.

    I think the pandemic has taught people a big lesson, having one stream of income is not really a good idea cause your job doesn't secure your financial needs. The pandemic has really set out business minded people from the rest that is why I'm so lucky to be among the investors trading with *metro_kelvinfx* on instagram as his student it's been success and happiness since the beginning of my trades.

    I would like to have all 3 of them, bc then i will be recording music studio sessions, using 3 cameras gives you almost a 3 D effect bc you film the same scene out of different angles. I just think that we will have to wait for the new M chip based Apple Mac Pro, would be surprised if the new 16 inch Macbook Pro M1X or the i 10 Razer Book Studio Edition can render and upload the footage of such 3 powerful and codex heavy cameras ?

    Ted , i need your help ! A few years ago i was looking into quadrant framing and i found (probably in one of your videos) a catalog of the works of a famous film director(or a producer or something).He took photos of events and stuff, but the framing was odd. It looked like 35 mm vertical shot with people in the lower half of the frame and empty space in the upped half. But i forgot the name and now i can't find it. Does it ring a bell ?

    Hi my name is jackson. A few years ago I broke my arm and had 6 surgeries I could no longer play sports. I started working on my car and became obsessed with taking pictures with my car and ever sence wanted a camera to learn to take good photos. I’m a senior in high school and next fall I go off to college. I wanna learn to take photos for other people and earn a bit to be able to pay for my books and the gas to get to and from campus. I’m looking for any cameras, or camera equipment your willing to get rid off or you just don’t need anymore. I just started a job but all my earnings are going to my gas and senior funds. Anything you can help with us a blessing. Contact me back for my address if you have anything I can have! I don’t wanna sound greasy just need help getting started up.

    It should be the best, considering how much it's worth.
    A quick question: why the very entry level full frame cameras with features equal to very entry level APS-C are worth like the very top of APS-C line? If not more. Is a full frame sensor that much more expensive to manufacture alone?

    The Sony A1 is an impressive camera but in my opinon this is a huge PR trick. Frankly speeking who needs 8k video? Who can watch at 8k? Only a minority of people can handle such big files or need 8k video files (because of croping?). Sony showed us whats possible and I think people will buy it even though there is no point in having this camera at all.

    The CIPA standard is totally laughable. 430 to 530 pictures on one battery charge is just ridiculous. Drain the battery in about 15 seconds using 30 fps taking photos, but do video for more than an hour in 30 fps up to 240 fps...? Sure... it is not even physically possible unless you short circuit the electronics. The battery will probably - as usual - give more like 1500 shots on a charge.

    Nice vid as always. Just a thought & I'm sure you & all your viewers know, when comparing the A1 to the R5, you have to think about the price point. If I could afford to make the switch I would pre order the A1 & all the Sony lens that I would need for it also. Let me go check my lottery tickets. Is it true on Sony cameras there is no option to turn off noise reduction? I thought I heard another reviewer mention that they wish they provided the choice with this camera.

      Totally depends on what you wanna do with the camera, no? Shooting at the Olympics or as the official White House photographer, etc? You'd probably want this badass camera. This is probably too much tech for 99% of the population, but if money grew on trees, I would pick it up along with that new 35mm lens since I'm already invested in Sony. Doesn't mean I wouldn't also pick up that new Fuji GFX100s too, whoo -- I've always wanted a big, bad, Fuji.

    This was a really good review. Pixel binning has been a huge issue with Sony cameras. Your demo footage wouldn’t likely show the issue. Try shooting a metal clad building with a pattern or shingles on a roof. Cameras that pixel bin cannot be used for broadcast. The S Cine tone made your face too magenta and your lips were very red. What can I say? I’m a colorist by profession. Anxious to get my A1 and see how it performs.

    The full frame backside illuminated stacked sensor is a technological breakthrough that advanced the state of photography. This latest 50 megapixel design is by far the best sensor available and in fact that it makes the mechanical shutter redundant. Future medium priced cameras using this sensor or a derivative thereof, sans mechanical shutter and other features will become common and affordable.

    Really get tired of the video stuff, but I know today there are so many YouTubers and others that want the video for the basement, without them we would have to see new stuff in a magazine!!! OK! What about us photo people? Look I know the skies have been cloudy and it is cold too along with winter naked trees! For most of the people wanting dynamic range are the astro Milky Way photographers (panos with 20 or 24mm but maybe a 50mm) or night captures (city), sunset/rise like in the grand canyon where 5 @ +/- 2ev bracketing is a must because of the blue in the shadows that the eye sees clearly and colors that need to be toned down due to cameras get it wrong in AWB (need the cube thing)! One other thing pixel sensors size 12 or 50 or the 62MP does not matter, has anyone heard of Topaz Denoise AI or Gigapixel AI. Big Pixel amounts are wanted by by those who want to crop in 200% but still have enough pixels to make a wall size photo. Let's get real, people post photos not print and they are small size. I started with the A7S in 2014 and took a MW shot enlarged to 200MP size printed to poster size and looks great, So the A7Siii should be just as great as the A1...... Well there are sensor improvements!

    Ted, can we look forward to a review of the Fujifilm GFX 100S? It doesn't come close to the Sony A1 specs for video, sports or wildlife photography - but for landscape, architectural, street, still-life and fine-art portrait work, I think it might just have the edge. I'm thinking about selling a kidney and buying both... What do you think?

    Sony should make a rugged version of this type of firepower.

      Sold my A7iii for an R5 for ruggedness. Sony, whilst I like them just got sick of sensor dust and feeling like it’ll break.

    I wish they would just make a stills camera. Everyone is going on about video all the time, and photography is getting lost in the video world. At the end of the day, 99 percent of people are just making videos for youtube and blogs just use your iPhone 99.9 percent of people can't tell the difference.

    Why are the test scenarios so different between r5 and a1? What is the meaning?

    TBH (old geezer mode=on) When I compare Sony against brands like Fuji, the analogy comes to mind. Let's say you are into wood craft. And you have a choice - either you go for a fancy modern solution with drill bits and CNC machining with laser controlled measurements, or you go for a nice set of classic chisels and mallets, bought from a small artisan shop in UK, to work with your craft in a slow pace, with dedication to every stroke and slice. Sony might have all the fancy stuff, but I look at it and there is no way in hell, this thing would inspire me to grab it and outside to shoot. I don't think it's even Sony's fault - Minolta didn't inspire me either back in the ye-old days - If I had a choice of a fancy maxxum 7000i with a pile of function cards or Pentax MX, I choose Pentax any day. It's not about being 'better' - it's just a matter of preference, style, needs. So as fancy as Sony might seem (the only thing that speaks to me in that review is low light capability, with proper lenses, that might be a great event/concert camera) -thanks, but no thanks :)

    Ive owned 3 Sony's and my latest is an RX100M7 . My warning to y'all is once you go Sony for autofocus speed, you can't go back to anything slower as it is so annoying

    hi ted, thanks for the great info! this is the first i've heard of the "M" mode, and this definitely piques my interest. can you please speak more to this? is this essentially a reduced-resolution raw?

      Like the A7R4, this camera doesn't have a low res RAW and probably never will, which I think is stupid. I think the other mode they mention is a 10bit jpeg

    Wouldn't that sensor be the one in the GFX 100? Serious question though.
