S-Cinetone delivers natural mid-tones that are essential to healthy-looking skin colour, plus soft colours and gorgeous highlights, responding to a growing need for more expressive depth.

 

“Active Mode” image stabilisation21

A new Active Mode dedicated to movie shooting makes 5-axis optical image stabilisation highly effective for handheld shooting. It uses the BIONZ XR engine’s real-time processing capability to apply optimum compensation in all formats, including 4K22. All of this is realised without compromising the compact size and mobility of the α system.

 

 

High-performance electronic viewfinder

The 9.44 million-dot (approx.) OLED viewfinder in the α1 offers the highest resolution in the industry at this time23. It features 0.90x magnification24 with a 41° FOV for a clear, wide view, and an updated structure that results in a 25mm high eyepoint. A 240fps refresh rate with UXGA FOV is another world first23 for a clear view of fast action.

 

Panning shots with electronic shutter25
 
Using electronic shutter at low shutter speeds can reduce display response, making it difficult to follow fast subjects. Turn [Low Frame Rate Limit] ON to improve display response and allow panning shots.
Seamlessly switch full-frame and APS-C formats

M and S size images26 have the same number of pixels and AF area in the full-frame and APS-C modes, so you can switch seamlessly between full-frame [M:21MP] and APS-C [M:21MP] while shooting the same scene.
[1] Full Frame  [2] APS-C
