Can it make a time-lapse video in camera yet like some Canon cameras can or do you still have to do it the photo way and stitch in LR etc.?

If you are a stills photographer, street, documentary, reportage you do NOT need the ridiculous flip lcd screen. Please Sony never ever make cameras for bloggers. Make cameras for PHOTOGRAPHERS. That flip screen is awful when you’re finely calibrating images, on the fly, creating great images....not having a model walk toward you while making a NLblock video. Additionally, not every camera will be suited to video and blog. Super high end equipment should never cater to anyone other than the most serious image makers.

Testing the video in 8k outdoors in direct sunlight test seems to shut it down pretty fast in other YT videos I've seen, so maybe a software issue? I've seen heat issues get fixed with early non production models before, so hopefully this is the same thing? The no flippy screen is not a big deal to me, but I honestly think both versions are bad. Sony needs to re-engineer a new type of articulating screen. I think some innovation can happen there for sure and I think it would require a slightly bigger body on the backside for that to happen, but I wouldn't care if it got bigger. I know Sony has this thing about being compact no matter what, but at some point it can work against you when trying to support a certain market segment that wants it. I mean Sony has a lot of different camera models now, so why not diversify in body size?

Great review! As for the lack of the flip-out screen - I think it is patented by some other manufacturer and Sony only gets permission to use it on certain models. I'm sure it is one of the features that are mostly designed by their legal them rather than their engineers ;)

Why NLblock algorithm? I don’t even follow this fellow anymore lol Great camera if from what I’ve heard the AF at 30fps would be more accurate and the same story with the video AF it’s bad, also heard that in real world shooting image quality drops and noise level increases. I mean I know there is no perfect camera but the staged in studio technical tests are not reliable at all. But am excited for what’s to come from all these new cameras

I think the pandemic has taught people a big lesson, having one stream of income is not really a good idea cause your job doesn't secure your financial needs. The pandemic has really set out business minded people from the rest that is why I'm so lucky to be among the investors trading with *metro_kelvinfx* on Instagram as his student it's been success and happiness since the beginning of my trades .

Matti I’m fairly new to filmmaking and I’m curious. With the release of the new BMPCC6K pro, with it not having auto focus I feel like that camera would not be useable for what I do, but 2500 for incredible footage is hard to pass up. What gives? Who is that camera geared towards

Downside is also iso range. it is inferior (30000) to a7c (51200)and even more inferior to a7s3 and yes the main downside is the flip screen that both of these cameras have. Personally i think 8k for video useless. And the footage and photos take more space on the cards and hard drive. Too much expensive. I could not find a difference between 8 bits and 10 bits with a side by side footage comparison. This is why i picked a7c and i love it. A1 cost 3 times more and is certainly only for real professional photographer or productions company to have a need for 8k content. But no one has 8k tv, so it is only beneficial if you want to crop. And we rarely crop a video. For photo the 50mp are useful but the iso low light must be inferior to smaller sensor despite giving more details. And i am not admirer of noise remover tools that destroy the details even with the latest paint shop pro ai tool that i have. Show us a footage with a7c or a7sIII in very dark scenario compare to a1, so you can prove what you announce. I doubt the 50 mp will be that good, dixit Sony specs.

Hi Matti.... You're doing a great job reviewing. There is however one big flaw in your review. I think that as a reviewer it is your job to look at multiple aspects and in this case it looks like you're missing one crucial point. A flip out screen is great for videographers and for some photographers but for some it is just terrible. To look down on a flip out screen you have to have it sticking out on the side. As a professional wedding photographer I can tell you that that is not the way to go if you have two camera's hanging on your sides on a Moneymaker harnas. I also use the Spider Holster and you'll definitely break a lot of screens if you keep those sticking out. It also takes to much time flipping them out and back in when your shooting on the run. From a wedding photographer standpoint the screen on the A1 is just the kind of screen which works perfect. I get where your coming from and you also compare it to the Sony A7S III and that has a flip out screen because it is aimed at videographers. I think the A1 is a great tool for video but the majority of features is aimed a bit more towards the photographer. Especially action/wedding/sports photographers. I love my A7Riv but I hate that is still has banding and rolling shutters issues. My A9ii doesn't have much issues with that. So the A1 would be a killer for this. That's way they have the 50MP sensor, the dual cards slots, the great AF and stuff like the fastest flash sync. So looking at the fact that most features are aimed at photographers it's logical that they went with a tilting screen and not a flip out screen.

Just for anyone wondering, H.265 420 files can be decoded with acceleration on the GPU with most moden GPUs. H.265 422 currently can NOT be decoded using GPU acceleration. That's why Canon R5 8K 422 footage is slow and difficult to edit on most machines, while this 8K 420 footage is mostly fine.

I am an aspiring student who wants to learn more with photography, but the problem is, we can't afford buying any type of camera. I don't know if you will consider my entry since I came from a different country (Philippines) But i would still try my luck.

Sony are geniuses. They knew that the flip LCD would be the one thing that would differentiate the A1 enough from the A7SIII that it would appeal to different markets and not cannibalize their own camera, but also wouldn't mean they had to sacrifice on any other specs. Very clever, Sony, very clever.

Do you have 8 K monitor ?! Because you can't see 8K at 4K monitor . It's impossible. The same like you can't see 4K at HD monitor. 4K you can only see at 4K monitor or TV. Otherwise videos are just scaled. You know that, yes ? 8K video will be outstanding experience at 8K TV.

the simple answer to this camera is putting the fuji tilt screen from the gfx 100 where you can also flip it horizontally. People seriously need to relax with flip out screens. Its just so awkward having the screen on the side of the camera.

No flip out screen is a big negative for vloggers yes, not for filmmakers though. Flip out can be extremely inconvenient in various shooting scenarios. I have the A7SIII after, upgrading from the A7SI, and I really wish it would have kept the original design. The best design though is what Panasonic did with the screen on the SH1

About that non existing flip-out screen: You kinda said it yourself why it's not there - and I believe it was Jason Vong who also said it. This camera is for those behind the camera, not in front of it. The pros - those shooting weddings, sport/action photographers, etc. So I get it.. Buuuuut I'd still like a flip out screen too. My old Nikon D5100 has one. My new(er) Sony A6500 doesn't, and omg I miss it when shooting vertically holding the camera close to the ground. :P

With H.265 Most graphics card for instance the Nvidia GPU's the 10 series all the way up to the 30 series is able to handle H.265 4K+ codecs. If you use OBS, you can use either H.264 or 265. Which 265 is recommended for 10 series+ Nvidia cards. Paired with an i9 or Ryzen 9 3900x+ it should be powerful enough. I can do 4k fine, and I can do a phones 8k with a breeze on my zen 9 3900x 12 Core Processor and 32GB DDR4 3600Mhz RAM with an Nvidia 1060 GPU. (Waiting on the 3060 to be in stock!) It's all about how the processing is. I don't know what your Mac's processor has in it, or what graphics card it has or to the amount of ram and speed it has. I forget what it has, may have to go back to your video that you talked about it on. But, I'm thinking it should have at least the last gen i9 or at least i7. (Mac is usually intel) With probably a 2070 or 80 GPU Over clocked with 256GB Ram? If I am not mistaken? IF it does have that amount of RAM, then I can only assume it's processing it quite literally fast along with the graphics card you have. Unfortunately you pretty much pay for the logo. Can build the same computer for twice the less of that, Even if its an i9 processor or i7 last gen. (I'm not up to date on Intel. I'm an AMD gamer. lol) Someone who has a laptop that's either 700 dollars or whatever, or even a prebuilt low end PC would NOT be able to handle 4k let alone 8k.

I am advocating for this kind of tilt screen. A flip screen is a 2 steps operation every time you use it, it makes a big difference when you must be ready to shoot. You may not like it, I get it, but it is not a minus.
