Med den hastigheten som fotografer med speilløse Sony kameraer har ventet på, tar Sony a9 imponerende multimediefunksjoner og øker bearbeidingskapasiteten for ultra-rask kontinuerlig skyting.
Den benytter en 24,2 MP full-frame Exmor RS-stacked CMOS-sensor og BIONZ X-bildeprosessor, og med dette kan a9 skyte opptil 20 fps, ta opp UHD 4K-video internt og skyte med et utvidet sensitivitetsområde til ISO 204 800.
What only a9 can do
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. a9 provides continuous tracking of moving subjects for foolproof AF/AE while traditional SLRs can only challenge such AF/AE performance improvements. Moreover, a9 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 a9.
Note: This camera is equipped with electronic and mechanical shutters. The features described in this section are primarily related to electronic shutter operation.
Driving force for full-electronic revolution - Innovative full-frame stacked CMOS sensor with integral memory
a9 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.
Capture the previously uncatchable - High-speed continuous shooting at up to 20fps
Groundbreaking full-frame Exmor RS CMOS sensor and BIONZ X processor team up for 20fps continuous shooting5 with AF/AE tracking. Stunning high-speed performance and ample buffer let you capture the decisive moment.
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.
Track the action with an uninterrupted view - AF/AE calculations up to 60 times/sec.
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 1/32000 sec.
Electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32000 sec. 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.
Silence expands photographic potential - 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. a9, however, has a vibration-free electronic shutter that can keep the camera stable, for razor-sharp images.
4D FOCUS: Stunningly wide coverage - 693. Remarkable number of phase-detection AF points
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.
