I can now officially share my initial review of the brand new Sony a1! In this video, I talk about what kind of safety net this mirrorless camera can provide with it's massive 50 megapixels. I also dive into the realistic scenario of when & why 30 frames per second would be used. And how my thoughts on 8K has slightly changed! If you're curious about the buffer when using 30FPS burst or if the camera overheats in 8K, check out the time chapters within the video to help you navigate to that specific section!

      If you had to choose for stills for the majority of your work which one would you choose R5, A1, A7RIV? I've heard the A7RIV performance is lack luster.

    Hi Jason, thanks for the video.
    Does anyone know if an external monitor can be used via HDMI from the A1, WITHOUT the A1 switching off its internal display when recording?
    I’ve got the A7SIII and it’s such an improvement over the A7iii in terms of monitor both the cameras display and an external Small HD monitor when shooting.

    How can it be that no one touches audio. It is nice enough to have a really good camera that takes good pictures, but if it is used for video, sound must also be recorded, and here I lack information to that extent.

    I'm conflicted. I love your videos and am hugely interested in the Sony ecosystem as a result. However, I currently own a Fuji x100f. Every time I see a Sony video I am inspired to purchase Sony, then I watch a Fuji video and I am equally inspired to go Fuji. What do I do? I am not so much invested in Fuji as to make the change difficult but I do love the Fuji system colour profiles. For what I want and my budget I can get slightly better specs for a cheaper price by going Fuji. Then again Sony has that full frame goodness which is so appealing.

    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.

For some reason the image keeps wiggling back and forth and is very distracting and it looks very unprofessional. Do you have a solution for my problem?

    Hey there Jason, thanks for the review! 👍 I have a question about the SD cards (3:46). You showed how (comparably) slow the buffer cleared when using an SD card instead of the new (Sony-exclusive and not cheap) CFexpress Type A cards. But could you also tell/show us how long the SD card needs to buffer burst mode shots when using COMPRESSED raw and jpeg? I don't think I will ever use the uncompressed or lossless compressed raw in burst mode bc of image size (you say so yourself, that would be bonkers ;-) but unfortunatelly you skipped that part in your video). I have my doubts about the CFexpress Type A cards and don't want to replace all my SD memory cards just yet while the technology is still so fresh and not very "mainstreamed".

    Nice video Jason. A quick question: Why does everything look to juttery starting from 10:08 (the 8k 24p video sample on a gimbal)? Did you use a way higher shutter speed and thereby introducing this jutter effect? What is your take on only having 4:2:0 with heavy compression available in 8k? Everyone on youtube seems to ignore this fact. There is a reason you managed to get like 50min of footage on those 160gb cards instead of what for example the Canon R5 in 8k raw is using (it's like 400mb/s vs more than 3gb/s or something like that).

    Maybe it's my mid range Lenovo panel, but that peacock, is too peacocking sharp. It looks like it's coming through that WandaVision forcefield. And keep in mind none of this is a dig. It's like when you saw a flat screen TV for the first time and all that high def hurt your eyes. That image was striking AF.
