    Can you go into s35 mode in 4k120???
    I use it all the time on my a7iii, and need it to work the same way in the A1 in any 4k mode, especially 4k120

    Thanks for the review. Lots of good points. One item I would love to see covered and strangely no bloggers have, that I’m aware of, is the pattern noise and resulting moire issues with these cameras. I own both the A7S3 and A1 and they both have this problem. I’ve been bit on two commercial shoots, pattern noise on an actors shirt and yesterday mesh metal doors in a server room where the moire was son strong on the A1 the footage was unusable and we had to remove all the doors, which seems dumb. Should have run and got my Red or GH5. I know neither of these would have had a problem.

    Quick, Thank you for all that you do! I have been following DP Review and then your separate YouTube channel for many years! A quick no technical question. @ just about the 11:18 time frame, there is A Building behind the car that's reads SERVICE. I think I have been in that area near Toronto (although I think you hail from the opposite cost). I was in middle of either opening or closing a TESLA Dealer Ship. Any chance that where you where? Keep doing what you do so well, Thanks Again,

    That thumbnail makes that camera look so fuckin' stupid tiny. It looks like it's the size of a credit card. The $6500 camera not much bigger than a Canonet QL19 from the 60's. Feels about the same in the hands. Should be bigger and have a built in battery grip. Nothing but a PS5 that takes pictures. 5 gens and they still can't design a camera body that looks and feels like a real Pro body. Sad.

    12:50 some really horrible banding in the background there, where the light falls off towards the edge of the frame. I wonder if it's YouTube compression causing this or whether it's present in the original file. 200Mbps seems awfully low for 8K.

    The skin tones look a little off... Hard to say if it's just a byproduct of Jordan being in front of the camera instead of behind it, or if it's an S-Cinetone issue. The cameras they bookend the review with during their Zoom calls look much, much nicer.

    Wait. 4K 60p is not full sensor readout? But in some specs it says no binning in normal 4K.
    So, is it worse in 4K than A7S3?

    • cogmission

      Wrong: Sony's "binning" algorithm was thoroughly tested by Gerald Undone, and if you look at the results you'll see there really isn't any difference between the A7siii and the A1 in terms of quality of the final output. It's not "down sampling", but Sony's "binning" algorithm is exceptional. @John Bunani In 8K, the R5 uses an awful codec which takes a serious toll on your editing machine, so it is technically better (higher bit rate and chroma subsampling) but what good is that if you can't edit it? So 8k on the R5 really isn't even worth mentioning.

      Yes it’s a “full sensor readout” as in full width, but with binning. It doesn’t have the 8k>4k downsample with no binning like the R5. It’s only non-binning 4k mode is when you’re shooting Super 35 which gets you a 6k>4k downsample but obviously with a 1.5x crop. You’re better off with the a7s3 for video unless you want 8k, but even then, you’re getting a super compressed low bitrate 8k unlike the All-I or RAW 8k you’re getting out of the R5, which require cfexpress type b cards for that kind of high datarate. This is more of a stills camera and not a video centric camera. People need to read into the details before assuming it’s better than the a7s3
