Sony has launched the Alpha 1 full-frame mirrorless camera in India.

There is a lot happening in the camera space with many new cameras launching in India. Fujifilm launched the X-E4 mirrorless camera a couple of days ago and now Sony has decided to bring its Alpha 1 camera to the country. It's a full-frame mirrorless camera that debuted earlier this year.

The Alpha 1 packs a 50.1-megapixel full-frame stacked Exmor RS CMOS image sensor in combination with an upgraded BIONZ XR imaging processing engine. The camera has a 9.44 million dot QLED Quad-XGA electronic viewfinder which does not black out when an exposure is made. It also supports up to 240Hz refresh rate.

The camera's high-speed readout from the image sensor and a large buffer memory makes it possible to shoot up to 155 full-frame compressed RAW images or 165 full-frame JPEG images at up to 30 frames per second.

The camera has been launched at Rs 5,59,990.

The Alpha 1 is also the first Alpha camera that offers 8K 30p 10-bit 4:2:0 XAVC HS recording with 8.6K oversampling for extraordinary resolution. It is also capable of 4K 120p/60p 10-bit 4:2:2 recording. Thanks to the BIONZ XR image processing engine, Sony's advanced real-time Eye AF improves detection performance by 30% over the previous system. The Alpha 1 also features AI-based real-time tracking that automatically maintains accurate focus.

With both mechanical and electronic shutters, the Sony Alpha 1 has the world's first anti-flicker shooting. The electronic shutter flash syncs up to 1/200 seconds. It also boasts the world's fastest flash sync speed of 1/400 seconds with a mechanical shutter, making it even easier to capture dynamic action.

Lastly, the Sony Alpha 1 also has built-in wireless LAM which allows communication on 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands with dual antennas. 5 GHz includes 2x2 MIMO support (IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac) offering 3.5 times faster wireless FTP transfer speed than the Alpha 9 II. The Alpha 1 also has a built-in 1000BASE-T LAN connector for high-speed, stable data transfers, including remote shooting. FTPS (File Transfer over SSL/TLS) is supported, allowing SSL or TLS encryption for increased data security.

The camera also has two media slots that both support UHS-I and UHS-II SDXC/SDHC cards, as well as new CFexpress Type A cards for higher overall capacity and faster read/write speeds.

Coming to pricing and availability, the new Sony Alpha 1 full-frame mirrorless camera is priced at Rs 559,990, and it will be available across all Sony Centers, Alpha Flagship stores, and major electronic stores across India starting 12 March 2021.
