Two Months With the Sony a1: How Does This Mirrorless Powerhouse Hold Up?

The Sony a1 mirrorless camera is by far one of the most impressive cameras we have ever seen, meant to tackle just about any need you can throw at it. This great video review takes a look at the camera and how it holds up for stills work after two months. 

Coming to you from Gordon Laing, this fantastic video review takes a look at the Sony a1 mirrorless camera for stills work over the course of two months. No doubt, the a1 has some jaw-dropping specs, combining a high-resolution 50-megapixel sensor with the ability to shoot 30 fps continuous bursts and the company's most advanced autofocus system ever and five-axis in-body image stabilization. Other impressive features include a 1/400 s flash sync speed and an OLED electronic viewfinder with 9.44-million-dot resolution and a ludicrous 240 fps refresh rate. On paper, the a1 looks like the most uncompromising camera possibly ever, and it looks like those specs generally pan out in practice. I will certainly be interested to see how Canon and Nikon eventually respond with their respective mirrorless flagships, but either way, it's clear camera technology has taken another impressive step forward. Check out the video above for Laing's full thoughts on the a1.
