If you use HSS anyway it doesn’t make a, you can pretty’s much get a HSS flash for 70 bucks nowadays nobody cares about strain on a flash, and who uses 400 shutter speed inside anyways unless you’re shooting action or something. The 400 sync speed was a rare and dumb reason to justify why the a1 is so much better then Canon or Nikon, sounding like a fanboy IMO. Comparing the A1 and Canon when you were doing a first impression video didn’t make any sense just tell people what you like about the camera no need to start being a fan boy, nobody ever said man what if the sync speed was 400, when there’s so many HSS flashes for cheap people don’t really care about sync speed anymore because the flash tech has change so much. Just my opinion

Fujifilm has ambient exposure preview with flash on since the first mirrorless years ago, so I don't know why he got so excited about it. It's not a new technology.

This is a good camera... it’s an all around so a good balance for videographers and photographers... so if you’re someone that works between both fields, this would be a good camera... but at about 7k lol I’m getting a cinematic camera 😂 (canon c100mkii, canon c200, or even one of Sony’s cinematic line cameras). I love Sony! They do a good job of separating (blogger/vlogger cameras, photographer cameras, and videography cameras, and cinematic cameras). It almost makes you feel like your going down a rabbit hole of which one to purchase. To be honest, all of Sony’s cameras are very similar, and the average person will never use all the functions on many of the high line price cameras. Grow as you go with there mirrorless line, and identify what medium you are using. A Sony a6000 still is very strong, and so is a Sony a7iii. Now if you have the money go crazy, but it’s subjective.

Manny, how about if you change your metering timer to 4 seconds? I tried it on mine and the screen went dark in 4 seconds with Profoto A1x on camera and with a Profoto remote on camera. When looking at your video I see you have your Metering timer set to 8 seconds which is what I had mine set to before.

Manny you’re starting to bring the Jared Polin energy into your videos i like that. Also great Outro. Thoughts though it feels like canon could simply put out a firmware update to be like the A1 live view Ambient exposure. For a camera that is a price of a used car/loan it should have that feature already. Keep up the great work manny, cheers!

This camera wishes it was an R5. This A1 overheats in the same time as the R5 yet records in a significantly lower bitrate and doesn't have the same color depth nor raw ability, what an absolute fail of a camera.

It's like $7000, it better have some nice tricks!!! I am sure the doctors and dentists will love this camera, even though they probably are shooting Canon or Nikon or Fuji medium format. Canon and Nikon better hurry up and get a $6000 body out there!

Hi Manny not sure if I understood you correctly on applying settings to live view, but both the z6 and z7 ii can provide the same. Go to d - shooting and display, then d9 - apply setting to live view and then toggle on or off. You can assign this to the I menu or even to one of of the user presets.

Hi Manny. I have a question for you: Why do you think that Sony is dragging its feet on the A7lV? All of these other cameras are being manufactured before the A7lV though they were announced well after the A7lV? Thanks.

Something very basic but essential to WORK efficient: will Sony finally offer a play (view back) mode with blinking highlights in full screen? I love my a7III and hardly need a upgrade (well, apart from focus stacking maybe) but this is the biggest flaw of the camera and for some reason i never hear somebody about it. I do a lot of location portraits with flash. Typically i set my camera manual for available light (maybe a bit underexposed) and i want to set my manual flash just where it doesn't blow out the highlights in the skin. And then i don't want to look al the settings constantly. I just want to get in the flow of the creative proces BUT, due to some move i did with the light for instance, or the model gets closer, or maybe the available light changes, i want to get a clear visual warning when highlights get overexposed! I want to see this full screen, and not that silly 3rd modus with the rgb levels next to a very tiny image. With one look i want to check eyes, expression, composition and if i'm still good on the flash setting. WHY ISNT THIS AVAILABLE SONY?? And i also don't understand how im the only one missing this.

You are wrong when you say this camera is the only only that syncs flash at high speed. Nikon Z7 II can be set to high speed sync - I have just tested it and it syncs at 1/5000th second using the mechanical shutter and 1/2000th second on the electronic shutter. As a former event photographer I have been using it on numerous Nikon cameras for years- this is not a "new invention" by Sony.
Andy Oliver
Andy Oliver 2 månader sedan
@Orville Griffiths The Nikon is full power flash synching at the higher speeds, I used this as professional photographer for over 10 years on Nikon cameras. Look at the DP Review on the Sony A1 - DP review state that Nikon had that flash option on the old Nikon D70 some 17 years ago on a camera costing £5500 less! The Nikon Z7 II syncs flash at high speeds with either the camera mounted on the hot shoe or triggered remotely - it does exactly what it says on the tin! As a working professional photographer the Nikon already does exactly what I need. - and I think DP Review agree with me! So how can Sony claim that this is great new feature on a £6500 camera?
Orville Griffiths
Orville Griffiths 2 månader sedan
This is NOT HSS! Previous Sony mirrorless cams did that - up to 1/8000 sec. (with flashes capable of HSS). This is electronic shutter syncing with FULL POWER flash at 1/200 (and beyond)!

Love the content man. Making me want to hop onto the SEmost platform with my setups and workflow. This is definitely a frustration I have with My outdoors workflow. Constantly turning off the transmitter just to see the ambience in the shot, then turn it back on to trigger the flash. Studio I don’t see an issue with it, or less I’m shooting in my rain machine which has continuous led lights mixed with a strobe. Hopefully Canon does this with the R1. (if that’s the name)

Godox is bullshit bruh. I’m mad asf I bought the ad 400 flash. And I have to go buy transmitter when I have a photoshoot the next very day. Like if it need the trigger to work why they didn’t add it to it or made it known they sell it separately like Ionn mind but I don’t get why they don’t tell you ow the flash is useless till I get the damn trigger thing

7:45 For the a7RIII and A7III peeps, the setting you're looking for is "Live View Disp. Sel." Although I'm not sure what Manny is talking about when he says you need to hold down the button 🤷‍♂️ i have a a7III and i just press the custom button I assigned it to and it toggles on and off. I also wouldn't call it a hack since it's built in to the system menu.

That 2/3rd stop difference in flash sync is going to set the world on fire. People are just dying to shoot at 1/400th. Nah! The camera is dope on paper and as it appears in person. Certainly will help with video but not believing that photos will see a revolutionary increase in quality. We'll see. I do love the fact Sony is pushing innovation forward.

Manny, can you please share your thoughts on the A1's Eye AF? As you know Sony's own advert demonstrated "Eyelash AF" and another 1-2 reviewers have indicated Eye AF was not as accurate as the R5's Eye AF. I have an A1 pre-ordered, but I'm now second-guessing myself. Did you notice any Eye AF inaccuracies? Thanks for your time.

It looks like a pretty wild camera and it's great that Sony combined their cameras that have been out for the last couple years into one. However, is this camera worth $3kusd MORE than the r5? I dunno. I guess if that flash sync is really worth it to you.

Flash syn becomes pointless in studio setting as you can have your strobes plugged in abc they can deal with extra output if go on HSS .

That live preview hack on the A7III needs to be talked about more. When I first got into flash that was super confusing. Glad to see sony listens and is solving that issue. Hopefully that feature trickles down from this body to the a74 when it comes out. 🤞
