Sony Alpha a9

There is so much new technology packed inside this new camera. Let’s break it down real quick before digging into the individual features:

  • World’s First full-frame stacked CMOS sensor, 24.2 MP resolution
  • 4K (3840×2160) Video at up to 30p
  • Full HD at up to 120p
  • Blackout-Free Continuous Shooting at up to 20fps for up to 241 RAW/ 362 JPEG images
  • Silent, Vibration-free shooting at speeds up to 1/32,000 sec
  • 693 point focal plane phase detection AF points with 60 AF/AE tracking calculations per second
  • Extensive professional features including Ethernet port for file transfer, Dual SD card slots and extended battery life
  • 5-Axis in-body image stabilization with a 5.0 step shutter speed advantage

At the heart of the Sony Alpha a9, a freshly-developed 35mm full-frame stacked Exmor RS™ CMOS sensor is what does the hard work. This kind of sensor is, as of today, a world-first, and it packs tremendous horsepower which simply wasn’t possible before. Along this new sensor, the camera sports an upgraded BIONZ X processing engine and front-end LSI that maximizes overall performance.
