Sony has released a new Version 1.3 firmware update for its flagship Sony Alpha A1 mirrorless camera. The new update brings 8K 4:2:2 10-bit video recording capabilities from 8.6K oversampling. While the Sony A1 did already have 10-bit recording capabilities, it was only 4:2:0, so the new update offers a lot more latitude in post for colour correction and grading as well as for tools like chroma-keying.
The Sony A1 also receives lossless compressed raw format still files, although the A1 isn’t the only camera to see a new firmware update. The Sony A7S III also sees a new Version 2.1 firmware which adds proxy footage recording while operating the camera remotely via computer as well as Eye AF performance improvements.
