Sony Alpha 1 Joins the Super Bowl LV Starting Line-Up

Sony Alpha 1 Joins the Super Bowl LV

One of the new players at Super Bowl LV will be a Sony Alpha One camera on a handheld stabilization rig to capture the shallow–depth-of-field shots that have garnered a lot of attention on social media and a great example of CBS production efforts to make this year’s Super Bowl a more technology-driven game coverage.

“The operator has been blown away by how cool it is and how fast the autofocus is,” says Cohen. “He said it’s amazing because he literally just touches a screen to select the subject that he wants it to focus on and it is instantaneously locked in the focus.”

During the NFL playoff’s FOX Sports cameraman Mike Smole garnered attention for his camera work using a Sony a7R IV and Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM stabilized on a DJI Ronin-S handheld gimbal at FOX’s broadcast of Seahawks-Washington Football Team broadcast.

  1. That shallow depth of field shot of players running off the field is terrible. Far too shallow, nothing is in focus, and it looks stupid compared to the other shots being broadcasted. Just because you CAN doesn’t mean you SHOULD. Great tech though!

  2. I actually like some of those scenes. In fact, assuming the camera is set up that way, I would be inclined to snaps some stills while the video is rolling.
