A1 seems to have insane rolling shutter performance for video. Only 2ms for 8K 30P, thanks to DRAM being made available for video read-out modes for the first time ever.

In stills mode, this increases to 5ms @14bit readout.

Thats ARRI Alexa levels of rolling shutter and approaching ARRI Alexa levels of dynamic range as well.

Seems to me, based off Gerald's hands on with it, that it is perhaps worth the price tag for people that don't want or need a flip screen and wants a hybrid camera that does it all, at least the best one so far.

I wonder how FX9 owners are feeling now?

I’m looking forward to all the ‘Why I Switched’ videos on YouTube when the thing gets launched.  

Your turn now Panasonic! Give us a Sony A1 but with the smaller 4/3" sensor in a GH6 and at the low price of $1995! 8K 10bit? 4K 120fps 10bit? Yes please!

The embargo for the a1 reviews ends today so if anyone needs me I'll be working on my thumbnail...

Very very few FX9 owners could 100% replace their FX9 with a Sony a1, they're too drastically different.

Perhaps, but Sony A1 + XLR-K3M is a compelling setup. No internal ND or SDI. I would bet money Sony will release a mirrorless camera like A1 or A7S with a eND within the next 2-3 years.

Many of us thought an a7 series (or similar hybrid) from Sony would have had an eND within 2-3yrs back 2-3yrs ago!!

We'll probably see another couple of years pass by once again with nothing happening....

So you thought you would get an eND before 10-bit? I think its coming. They are running out of things to compete on.

Well, perhaps not the a7 would have, but one of the other hybrid mirrorless would've got it! Remember, we got already got 10bit in mirrorless well over two years ago. (and external 10bit even longer ago before that)

So basically almost exacty the same as the R5 in all modes (except no 4K HQ).
