The Sony a1 (or Alpha 1, or α1, or ILCE-1) is Sony’s latest flagship mirrorless camera. And what a camera it is! 50MP sensor, 30fps stills shooting, 8K30 video, and a bucketload of other features. The image quality is superb, it’s very fast, and the handling is excellent. I’ve found it to be a real joy to shoot with, and I can’t wait until circumstances allow me to be able to take it out on the road and push it even more.

I’ve been shooting mainly stills with it, and I’ve included below some example shots. This is a general selection. I also have more sample images focusing on high-ISO photos as well as the individual lenses I’ve used on this camera body: Sony FE 20mm ƒ/1.8 G, Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS, Sony FE 90mm F2.8 Macro G OSS.

You can download the original uncompressed RAW file using the link under each image. But just a heads up that they are around 105MB each.

Where to Buy

The Sony a1 is available at B&H Photo. As expected, it’s in high demand, so it’s worth jumping into the queue sooner rather than later to reserve your place.
