Sony has officially announced its new flagship alpha a1 camera body.
This new body is equipped with a 50.1mp stacked EXMOR RS CMOS image sensor and a new BIONZ XR processor. This allowed the new camera to shoot at a full 30fps.
The autofocus is new and improved, with a fast sensor readout that enables up to 120 AF/AE calculations per second. This is twice the speed as the Alpha a9 II.
The EVF is a pretty impressive 9.44million-dot OLED display with a crazy refresh rate of 240fps.
Other goodies include 1/400sec full-frame flash sync speed and 1/500sec in APS-C mode. It can shoot 8K up to 30fps for up to 30 minutes, as well as 4K at 60fps for the same length of time. You also get a 5-axis in-body stabilization system that can compensate shake up to 5.5 stops.
It looks like pixel shift shooting is going to become the norm, as the alpha a1 can do it up to 199mp.
This new flagship camera will cost $6498 at launch and preorders will begin tomorrow at 10 AM ET...
