Sony Alpha A1 seen from the front

Sony Alpha 1 Released to battle Canon’s lead in impressive mirrorless camera specs

So Sony has a new camera out. Sony declares that:

The most technologically advanced, innovative camera that Sony has ever released, the Alpha 1 combines high-resolution and high-speed performance at a level that has never been accomplished in the world of digital cameras. With a brand new 50.1-megapixel full-frame stacked Exmor RS™ image sensor, up to 120 AF/AE calculations per second, 8K 30p 10-bit 4:2:0 video and much more, the Alpha 1 will allow creators to capture what they’ve never been able to before.

Sounds pretty amazing.

I’m not going to get the camera, not really the target group for a camera of this caliber. But it’s always exiting to see new gear come out and read the reviews. And it’s definitely impressive and interesting to follow the battle between Sony and Canon going on right now. Hopefully the new boundaries pushed will allow more affordable cameras to get even better, while still holding affordable prices. Let’s see. No matter how impressive this camera is however, I think it will only be for certain professional photographers – or people with more money than they need.
