    Complimenting the camera’s ability to capture images at an unprecedented speed, the Alpha 1 viewfinder features the world’s first, up to 240 fps refresh rate, for a super-smooth display. The 9.44 million dot OLED Quad-XGA electronic viewfinder does not black out when an exposure is made and offers an uninterrupted view allowing seamless framing and tracking, even during continuous shooting. The Alpha 1 capture moments that would otherwise be lost, thanks to its high-speed performance. High speed readout from the 50.1-megapixel image sensor and a large buffer memory makes it possible to shoot up to 155 full-frame compressed RAW images or 165 full-frame JPEG images[12] at up to 30 frames per second with the electronic shutter while maintaining full AF and AE tracking performance[13].
