Hey @DPReview staff...My A1 viewfinder refuses to turn when I'm using it in bright sunlight, and the IBIS often takes around 5s to engage. Did you ever run into similar issues with your testing?

This seems kind of amazing. Compared to my A9, when I look at this raw file, I feel like I'm able to retain much more detail at high ISOs while applying noise reduction without seeing massive degradation in image quality?

vFunct: Hope it has time-code in and genlock in, for multicamera productions.

Also, built in variable ND filter as well as multi-channel XLR audio recording.

All of the above probably through a USB-C adapter as the body would be too small.

What would be really killer is if it was able to record raw video internally as well.

So it sounds like you want a cinema camera? Because they make those already.

NexUser: Sony's answer to Canon 5D and R5 and 1DX series: One camera to do everything well. Canon's R5 is a great camera whose AF can even challenge 1Dx series. Now this A1 is an 8K camera with excellent AF and sensor.
Good job Sony. But the price is way out of my league :) I'll keep my A9.

@Ric 360 I've decided to just ignore you and stop responding to your posts. Someone, like yourself, who quotes Tony Northrup as an authority on cameras can't be taken seriously. I'm sorry dude, best of luck with your life.

whitelens: I think the reason for some Canon and Nikon fans to dislike this camera is that Sony is just a little bit too "loud" or as some people call it "toxic"!
Canon and Nikon were the top guns in this game for decades.
Now this new kid on the block is arrogantly strutting its stuff and showing the world how to design great cameras and lenses!
I generally do not like arrogance, but if there is enough substance to back it up, I find it actually attractive!
In a nutshell, Sony talks the talk, but they definitely also walk the walk!

@Jay

Northrup is a joke. If you look at any other photographer who actually knows how to use a camera, you'll find they had a different experience using the A1!

marc petzold: We'll await the Reviews, and see if the A1 Weather Sealing is as good, as the NIkon Z-Series, D6, and 1DX III, and Pentax of course. Pros need Gear, which they could rely 101% on, because their Job is depending onto it. Besides all the bells & whistles, i have my doubt with Sony into the WR Department - no offense, but older A7 Bodies showed, Weather Sealing is not comparable to Pentax and Canikon.
And due to EVF, one can't simply beat a DSLR. CIPA Rating for the D6 - 3.580 Actuations, which means, into real Life Scenarios, way even more. A1: 430 (EVF), 530 (LCD).

No offense. Good Light.

Yeah man, we know Sony WR was bad IN THE PAST. And then they started really ramping it up, like with the A7R IV, A7SIII, A9II, and now, the A1.

Is there something about this which doesn't make sense? I also even linked you an article talking about improved weather sealing in the A7R IV.

Saying their weather sealing USED to be bad in Sonys (which I agree with, by the way) is like saying that cars used to be dangerous. And it's like, well, yeah, no duh my guy, that's why they added seat belts and made cars BETTER. See?

stuntmonkey: Once again a Sony thread demonstrates that DPReview readers:

a) Have no idea what the needs of a D6/1Dx/A9/Alpha 1 profession actually need and go on and on about the big numbers on the spec sheet as if that was the only thing working professions and organizations like Associated Press cared about

b) Demonstrate that they have no imagination about what is about to happen in the near future. The Alpha 1 isn't "the best camera ever". It's the new normal for the professional class and just so happens that it's the first of the coming generation.

AP is one of the most celebrated press publications in the US. And made that name by sending photo/videojournalists into horrifically challenging situations and walking out with banger photographs. An they're credible.

To imply that they are being bought by Sony to use Sony's crappy equipment is a reflection of your limited understanding as to what Associated Press actually is.

lol, again my guy, what even is your argument. They are different cameras. The A7R III isn't even the A7R IV, which saw substantial weather sealing improvements. Please see here:

https://petapixel.com/2019/12/17/sony-a7r-iv-full-disassembly-and-teardown-improved-in-every-way/

A7R III is the A7R III. The A1 is the A1. Do you understand that they are different cameras and have been designed with a different user in mind?

"no offense, but older A7 Bodies showed, Weather Sealing is not comparable to Pentax and Canikon."

This makes literally zero sense to me. The Sony A1 is not the A7. They are different cameras, built for different purposes.

Sony had professionals in mind with the A1. And, they had feedback from AP photo/videojournalists. That was one of the reason for the 50mp sensor.

Why you would compare two things which, first of all, are from different lines of cameras, but secondly, are from different generations of cameras, is perplexing.

Occams Razor: It looks like there are too many bodies to consider for the comparison matrix. I would have added the R5 before the D6 and A7R IV.

Disagree. They stated why they chose the 1DX Mark III and D6 as competition comparisons as those were the other true pro-grade bodies from Canikon.

TerryV81: I'm a Sony shooter but no articulated screen and the Ibis that still sucks... It's just sad now.

@eno2

HAHA you must be a troll burned by the sunlight because you are LIT BRO

No i want to play this game.

Personally, I love the underwhelming video features of the A1, such as amazing lowlight performance, 8k, S-Cinetone color profiles, and Dual Gain starting at 4k that gives better results than an A7S III. it gives me an excuse for not wanting to shoot video; my camera sucks!

I really wish they were better, you got me there brah

@TerryV81

True. But some people do. And for the people that do care about those features I listed that best the R5, they will buy this camera instead.

So what point are you trying to make here? That different people with different needs want different tools?

Groundbreaking insight here, pal.

In reply to:

(unknown member): I'll just say it this way. Sony is legitimizing cameras with higher prices, cameras that shoot 8K, cameras with higher than 24MP, and cameras that shoot 20-30FPS.
These are slowing becoming things buyer think they 'need'. I don't think consumers will consider $6500 a common price point just yet, but getting these type of features for about half that price may now been seen as a bargain rather than something no one needs or wants to pay.
Call it spec-creep or whatever.

The A1 isn't designed to be a toy, same with the D6, and the 1DX Mark III. The price of the A1 is also the same as the D6 and 1DX Mark III, $6,500.

It's a professional tool that is also available to non-professionals to purchase. I think contention about the price arises from folks who don't realize the value of what they're buying, and probably, because they don't use cameras to make a living.

LMAO HAHAHAHAHAHA.

So out of all the things, the new mechanical shutter, 30 FPS, 50 Megapixel, 9.44 million dot EVF, lossless compressed raw, improved weather sealing, 8k video, S-Cinetone, improved high ISO performance, improved AF system, new flash sync speeds...

...the thing that really gets you is no articulated screen so you can vlog with the camera? All that other stuff just doesn't matter or something?

Niko Todd: "Do you have any questions that you'd like us to address in our final review?"

Sure:
- How well does it track animals - and objects in general - when set to 20fps; and also in video compared to R5/6?
- Are there lower speeds when in el. shutter other than 20/30fps?
- Does the 20fps mode still switches the readout to 12 bit?
- Is the buffer still slow to empty, given the new cpu's and cfexpress cards? (compared to R5/6)
- Is there an EVF 'slideshow' effect when in any of the fast shooting modes?
Take care.

There is not an EVF slideshow effect with the A9/A9ii/A1. When they talk about a blackout-free viewfinder, that's what they're talking about. If you google A9 blackout free viewfinder in youtube I'm sure you'll find some examples.

Indohydra: Question: The main concern with most users has always been the Sony interface. No mention that I can see that they have improved on it in any way. Does anyone have any info?

Are you talking about menus?

First off, I've used my a9 for a year and a half and you get used to the menus in the first few weeks.

Secondly, they revamped the menus to make them more logically laid out on the A7SIII and the A1 has the same menu system.

In reply to:

JoeBryanFFC: They'll announce they're including in-camera focus stacking. Fuji, canon, nikon, panasonic, hasselblad, olympus all have it so maybe it's time for Sony too.

And annouce they're improving their focus peaking which is also the worst in the market.

Therefore finally making the alpha family useful for non-amature macro and product photographers.

AAAAAAHAHAHA JoeBryanFCC I agree with you the ORIGINAL A7 need a lot of work, but they have made much better cameras, and you should check them out because you're 8 years behind bud!

Link | Posted on Jan 21, 2021 at 18:47 UTC

Maybe it'll be an A9 with an integrated battery grip and next-level EVF...That's all I want :(

EXkurogane: "New concept" = remove features from an A7iii, give it a flippy screen and jam all the components in a smaller body then price it higher than the A7iii. All the YouTubers are going to praise it anyway because it's small and light. More products designed for weak people who can't lift.

LMAO. So simplistically ignorant.

In reply to:

Muskokaphotog: Many or most A mount users have switched to E by now. Sony's future investment is clearly E mount lenses. I have the 4 and it is a pain to use with the delicate mirror staring at you every time you change a lens. Besides, despite all the claims for high speed shooting, Nikon easily wins the high speed auto focus tracking. What good are 30 fps if they are out of focus? I use my Sony for landscapes, portraits and vintage lenses.

Yeah @muskokaphotog you must have an older Sony or just sat a really slow lens. I have the older A9 and even that is a total monster for photographing sports and AF.
