High-speed BIONZ X image processing engine

High-speed BIONZ X image processing engine

Achieving processing speed beyond the previous model, BIONZ X image processing engine is optimised for speed to reliably capture fast-moving subjects and realise continuous shooting of up to 20fps. Due to the newly developed image-processing algorithm, you can capture high-quality images with less noise all across the sensitivity range while maintaining natural details.

20fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking

20fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking

A combination of groundbreaking high-speed full-frame Exmor RS CMOS sensor and high-speed BIONZ X processor enables 20fps continuous shooting without a break for as many as 362 shots. Thanks to the capability of displaying subjects nearly as naturally as they appear in reality, EVF lets you "sync" your intentions with camera behaviour.

693-point focal-plane phase-detection AF

693-point focal-plane phase-detection AF

a9 brings you 693 phase-detection AF points in a high-density focal-plane AF system, providing distinctively wide and dense AF point coverage over approximately 93% of the image area. This enables more accurate, efficient, and reliable focus on subjects throughout the frame.

Enhanced Eye AF

Enhanced Eye AF

Eye AF can capture intriguing facial expressions with enhanced accuracy through 30% improved precision of eye detection. This enhanced feature automatically focuses on and even tracks focus on a subject's eye as the face moves or turns to a 3/4 view, extending your freedom to frame a great shot.

FTP transfer via LAN terminal on the camera body

FTP transfer via LAN terminal on the camera body

Using a new terminal for wired LAN connection, you can conveniently transfer still image files to a specified FTP server for viewing and management as needed. A wired LAN connection gives you the highest possible transfer speeds for large image files - an ideal solution for studio photography. Moreover, since FTPS (File Transfer Protocol over SSL/TLS) is supported, image files can be encrypted with SSL or TLS while being transferred, assuring a higher level of security.

Supported in Capture One Express (for Sony)

Supported in Capture One Express (for Sony)

Fast shutter release at 1/32000 sec., achieved silently

Explore the advantages of a high-speed silent shutter that is fully digital - without a physical mechanism. A result of Sony's image sensor innovation, this shutter achieves speeds up to 1/32000 sec., beyond the limits of mechanical systems. High curtain speed of the electronic shutter suppresses rolling shutter effect and shows excellent performance in capturing moving subjects during sports and other fast-moving activities.

Efficient workflow and professional reliability

In addition to a magnesium alloy body that assures the camera’s all-around toughness and reliability, largely amplified versatile features enhance operability, supporting severe usage in professional photography.
  • 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, UHS-II support

    With two media slots, including one that's UHS-II-compatible for fast data writing, the α9 can record simultaneously or in relay, separate RAW and JPEG data, separate still shots and movies, and copy data between cards.
  • Support for FTP background transfer

    To meet the professional's demand for immediate delivery of images, the camera now supports FTP background transfer while shooting continues or after shooting finishes. The transfer method and the filtering methods have been improved to make it easier to specify which files you wish to transfer.
