68years-cscs-sony This mechanism-free camera can deliver a-class-above performance conventional mechanical SLRs have only sought. For example, this system realizes a totally blackout-free viewfinder while conventional systems can only try to reduce blackout time. A high-speed, vibration-free, silent Anti-Distortion shutter vastly extends the range of shooting situations while a mechanical system can only aim for lower vibration and quieter shutter release sound. α9 provides continuous tracking of moving subjects for foolproof AF/AE while traditional SLRs can only challenge such AF/AE performance improvements. Moreover, α9 allows its viewfinder to show not only images of the subject—available on conventional systems—but also the final image of a shot. Now, thanks to a new image sensor that superbly manages all these roles, you can surpass all expectation with α9.

  • Innovative full-frame stacked CMOS sensor with integral memory – α9 liberates you from the limits of conventional SLRs that rely on mechanical systems. First to use high-speed stacked design, its 24.2-megapixel full-frame image sensor temporarily stores large-volume data in the integral memory for overall 20 times faster readout speed. The combination of CMOS sensor and enhanced BIONZ X™ image-processing engine brings you true digital freedom.
  • High-speed continuous shooting at up to 20fps – Groundbreaking full-frame Exmor RS® CMOS sensor and BIONZ X™ processor team up for 20fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking. Stunning high-speed performance and ample buffer let you capture the decisive moment.
  • Blackout-free shooting – Non-mechanical electronic shutter eliminates blackout with typical SLR mirror action. An uninterrupted view of the subject is available even during shutter release, with 60fps live-view capability and minimal display lag in continuous shooting.
  • AF/AE calculations up to 60 times/s – Light directly reaches the image sensor without mechanical interruption. An ingenious fusion of mirrorless construction and new speed-enhancing technologies provides AF/AE at the full-frame focal plane.
  • Electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 s – Electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 s far surpass mechanical shutters for a new imaging expression. You can also maintain shallow depth of field without an ND filter, even under bright conditions.
  • No noise distraction – An anti-distortion electronic shutter allows silent shooting without mechanical mirror and shutter noise. It’s ideal for sports and subjects that demand quiet operation, greatly expanding camera versatility
  • No unwanted vibration – During SLR shooting, mirror shock and shutter release shock cause subtle vibration. α9, however, has a vibration-free electronic shutter that can keep the camera stable, for razor-sharp images.
  • Professional features and performance in a compact body. The freedom of mobility inspires fresh creativity.
  • Swift, accurate, and reliable AF – Discover enhanced AF—more precise, virtually unfailing focus, swift reaction to fast motion, low-light reliability, and consistent tracking in continuous shooting.
  • 4D FOCUS: Stunningly wide coverage – The phase-detection points on the surface of an image sensor—693 AF points—covers approximately 93% of the image area. High-precision performance assures your focus on subjects.
  • Outstanding image quality – Full-frame 24.2-megapixel sensor with sensitivity up to ISO 204800 and wide dynamic range captures outstanding image quality.
  • Technology for high-quality images – Utilise high-quality imaging that unites all available image sensor technologies—including back-illuminated structure, gapless on-chip lens architecture.
  • BIONZ X™ enhanced speed image processor – Enhanced image processing combined with new front-end LSI reduces noise while improving detail depiction over a wide sensitivity range. Improved detail rendering enables lifelike texture reproduction.
  • Uncompressed 14-bit RAW format is supported, and it or the current compressed RAW format can be selected as required. Uncompressed 14-bit RAW is a good choice in situations where the sensor's wide dynamic range and fine gradation reproduction will benefit the images being captured.
  • Beautiful 4K imaging – Full-pixel readout with no pixel binning makes it possible to condense approximately 2.4 times the amount of data required for 4K (the equivalent of the amount of data required for 6K) into 3,840 x 2,160 4K output. This oversampling process plus full-frame pixel readout without binning results in the highest possible 4K movie image quality.
  • 5-axis image stabilization – New body-integrated 5-axis image stabilization unit offers a 5.0-stop shutter speed advantage. The live-view monitor image is also stabilized, so you can compose images easily even when shooting a fast-moving subject.
  • Battery stamina for professional use – A newly developed NP-FZ100 battery offers approximately twice the life of the previous NP-FW50. Capture up to approx. 480 still frames on one charge—and further increase the number of shots with an attached optional vertical grip (sold separately) that can hold two batteries.
  • Dual media slots – Use two slots—one for SD and one for SD/Memory Stick cards—to simultaneously backup still/movie data, save RAW/JPEG images to different cards, and copy between cards. Lower card slot supporting UHS-II type cards is available for fast transfer speed.
  • FTP file transfer – A new terminal for wired LAN connection lets you transfer still images to an FTP server for viewing and management. Since FTPS (File Transfer Protocol over SSL/TLS) is supported, image files can be encrypted while being transferred.
  • My Menu & new menu interface – A new My Menu feature lets you register up to 30 menu items for instant recall, arrange items in any order, and erase unused items. Also, primary menus have been reorganised for smoother search and operation.
