Sony Alpha a9 Mirrorless Digital Camera- Body Only
Sony brings their game to a whole new level with the Sony Alpha a9 mirrorless camera. With high speed and performance with no image blackout, this camera packs a punch for the avid sports or wildlife camera ensuring you won't miss a shot. Shooting up to 20 fps at full resolution, while auto focusing at a refresh rate of 60 fps, more frames will be in focus faster. The first stacked CMOS sensor brings sensitivity and speed to each shot making the data readout speed 20x faster than ever before.
Built for Speed- Faster Continuous Shutter Speeds and AF
The revolutionary image sensor and high-speed processing bring speed and accuracy to the Sony a9 with higher continuous shutter rates, up to 20 fps, while up to 60 AF calculations per second maximize AF performance. A larger, bigger memory allows up to 241 compressed RAW images or 362 JPEG images to be captured in one continuous burst. No image blackout allowing users to get the shot they're looking for, faster.
Enhanced phase-detection autofocus offers up to 25% after AF operation than the a7R II. The focal plane phase-detection AF system gets the job done, even with A-mount lenses (adapted using LA-EA3 mount adapter giving shooters a wider range of lenses to add to their arsenal.
Dual card slots give a slot for SD cards and a second for SD and Memory Sticks. The lower card slot is UHS-II compatible for fast write speed. Allowing different configurations, such as recording stills to one card while the other records video, one card record RAW while the other JPEG. Dual card slots are also capable of transferring images between while in camera.
The new a9 is very capable as a video camera as well, as it offers 4K (3840x2160p) video recording across the full width of the full-frame image sensor. When shooting in this format, the camera uses full pixel readout without pixel binning to collect 6K of information, oversampling it to produce high quality 4K footage with exceptional detail and depth. Recording is also available in the popular Super35 size. Additionally, the camera can record Full HD at 120 fps at up to 100 Mbps, which allows footage to be reviewed and eventually edited into 4x or 5x slow motion video files in Full HD resolution with AF tracking.
Built for Precision- More Phase AF Points, Blackout Free Viewfinder
Sony has decided it's time for a change, we should be able to see the scene before us even while shooting! Introducing the no blackout viewfinder, giving shooters an uninterrupted view of the subject before them. The improved Eye AF automatically detects subjects' eyes, even while looking away from the camera, during movement, and in partial darkness. Even if the scene poses challenges, the a9 won't be a factor holding you back.
Having 693 phase-detection auto focus points, 93% of the image sensor is covered. Reliable low-light AF helps capture even the most challenging of settings and subjects, allowing impossible shots to not only become possible, but crisp. Working with the fully electronic, vibration-free shutter, images come out clearer than any DSLR currently on the market.
Built to Last- Double Battery Capacity, Robust Magnesium Alloy Body
The NP-FZ100 rechargable battery has about 2.2x the capacity of the previous NP-FW50 battery and can capture up to 480 still frames from a single charge while using the EVF. The optional VG-C3EM vertical grip holds two batteries, allowing up to 950 images in continuous mode. Need more? The optional MQZ1k multi battery adapter kit can hold up to hour batteries, great for continuous shooting and video.
Constructed with the lightweight, yet durable, magnesium allow, further reinforced in the grip and front cover. Although the same size and weight as the a7 series, the reinforced mount brings maximum rigidity and durability so you can bring those telephoto lenses without worry.
