I’m an a1 owner, but am so far unqualified to answer yet.
I bought my a1 to sit on a shelf. It’s doing great at that!
Seriously I’ve been staying out of the heat for the last month and also we’ve been getting started renovating our house, so I’ve hardly used my a1 yet.
Another hangup for me has been processing power and I’m reaching a breakthrough on that decision on that front: Going to go with a maxxed-out gaming PC! In better years I’d do my own build, but pre-builts are about the only way to get the parts in this covid economy.
If you can somehow manage the expense it would absolutely be such an amazing fit for all your varied work.
you are funny, bought it to sit on a shelf! I know that feeling, my gear has mostly sat on the shelf lately. I really have a desire to get out and go find some wild place and explore, lose myself in it, but can't right now...still not ok leaving my wife alone for more than an hour or two.
When you say processing power, do you just not have an editing machine that can handle 4K? I have that taken care of, the machine I am using handles all of the 4K stuff I do with ease.
Part of what I am wanting is that 4k 120...after everything I shot for the track commercial, the 120 stuff looked better, more smooth. and I might be doing more of that...but also really will be needing something that can be a companion to the a9 at the track, and right now the r2 well, it can't...and the a7III is not my favorite for the track. In my current plans, the r2 and the 7iii both have to go...trying to get back down to 2 bodies and not 3.
