Highlights of Sony α9

  • 24.2-megapixel 35 mm full-frame stacked CMOS sensor with integral memory. Wide standard ISO range 100-25600 is expandable to even wider ISO 50–204800.
  • The phase-detection points on the surface of an image sensor—693 AF points—cover approximately 93% of the image area. High-precision performance assures your focus on subjects.
  • Full-frame Exmor RS CMOS sensor and the BIONZ X processor team up for 20fps continuous shooting4 with AF/AE tracking.
  • Non-mechanical electronic shutter eliminates blackout with typical SLR mirror action. Electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32000 seconds far surpass mechanical shutters for a new imaging expression.
  • An uninterrupted view of the subject is available even during shutter release, with 60fps live-view capability and minimal display lag in continuous shooting.
  • Body-integrated 5-axis image stabilisation system is fine-tuned to compensate accurately for five-axis camera shake that can compromise handheld shooting.
  • Dual slots for convenient data management: one for SD cards and one for SD/Memory Stick cards. Lower card slot supporting UHS-II type cards is available for fast transfer speed. Still or movie data can be simultaneously recorded to both cards for back-up, or RAW/JPEG images or stills/movies can be recorded to different cards. Data can also be copied between cards.
  • Support for uncompressed 14-bit RAW format
  • Tough magnesium alloy body
  • 1.3 cm (0.5 type) Quad-VGA OLED colour Viewfinder
