Updated Electronic and Mechanical Shutter

When working with an electronic shutter, the a1 is capable of 30 fps continuous shooting at full resolution with full AF and AE capabilities. If you are using the mechanical shutter, you are still able to shoot up to 10 fps. Its large buffer memory allows the user to shoot up to 155 compressed raw frames, or 165 JPEGs, in one single burst at 30 fps. The updated electronic shutter is silent and vibration-free and supports 1/200s flash sync speeds as well as anti-flicker shooting. Also, the updated mechanical shutter, allows the user to sync at 1/400s in full-frame or 1/500s with an APS-C crop.

Outstanding Video Capability with 8K 30p and 4K 120p Video Recording in 10-Bit

The Sony A1 can capture UHD 8K 30p XAVC HS video with 8.6K oversampling and internal 4:2:0 10-Bit sampling. You are also able to shoot up to UHD 4K 120p using full pixel readout without binning. Internal 10-bit 4:2:2 sampling is available in all recording modes as well as 16-bit raw output via the full-size external HDMI A port. The camera uses a similar heat dissipation design to the one developed for the a7S III. This, in conjunction with lowering the overheat protection setting, allows for 30 minutes of 8K capture.

Quick Hybrid AF System

The camera features Real-time Eye AF for both humans and animals with 759 phase-detection points as well as 425 contrast-detection areas which cover 92% of the image area. This focusing system is available for use in all recording modes, to benefit both video and stills applications. With dedicated Real-time Eye AF Bird Mode, you are able to detect and track bird’s eye regardless of the bird’s position.

Pixel Shift Multi Shooting

Pixel Shift Multi Shooting allows you to capture 199MP resolution images by shifting the sensor and making 16 consecutive exposures. It delivers greater colour accuracy and detail comparing to a single exposure. All images can then be merged during post-production by using the Sony Imaging software suite.
