The camera wars are heating up. Sony is looking to dethrone Canon’s R5 as the king of the mirrorless cameras, and it looks primed to do it with the release of its new flagship, the Sony Alpha 1, a camera the Japanese tech giant is calling the most advanced and innovative it’s ever released.

The Sony Alpha 1 is a full-frame mirrorless camera that boasts some pretty wild specs thanks to its BIONZ XR processing engine and stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor. The camera is capable of capturing 50.1-megapixel images at 30 frames per second, and can also shoot video in 8K 30p — four times the resolution of 4K. Sony has also added a slew of “world firsts” to the Alpha 1, including a viewfinder with a refresh rate of 240 fps, anti-flicker shooting with both the mechanical and electronic shutter, and a mechanical shutter flash sync up to 1/400 sec. Naturally, all of this speed, clarity, and innovation doesn’t come cheap, as the Sony Alpha 1 is priced at around $6,500.
