Key Features

User selectable focus area circulation and customisation

User selectable focus area circulation and customisation

A new setting allows the focus area to be rotated through the upper, lower, left, and right edges of the frame to select an appropriate focus area for sports or other situations where the subject frequently moves through the frame. AF area and ISO display limiting makes it possible to display only the most frequently used focus area and ISO settings for quicker, easier selection for faster, more efficient shooting.

Body-integrated 5-axis optical image stabilisation

Body-integrated 5-axis optical image stabilisation

The body-integrated image stabilisation system is fine-tuned to compensate accurately for 5-axis camera shake that can compromise handheld shooting. This gives you extremely high performance in both stills and movies, whether shooting at longer focal lengths, in close-ups, or at night. It is equivalent to using a 5.5-step faster shutter speed, allowing stable determination of composition when capturing subjects in high-speed motion. Real-time effects can be monitored via live view. (1) Yaw (2) Pitch (3) Roll

Shutter durability and image shake suppression

Shutter durability and image shake suppression

The shutter has been tested for durability in excess of 500,000 shutter-release cycles and incorporates an internal damper structure to absorb the impact of shutter motion for minimum shutter vibration and noise, helping to realise more sharply resolved imaging, as well.

Reliable durability and weather resistance in tough situations

Reliable durability and weather resistance in tough situations

The a9 II brings you further enhanced body durability, with full use of lightweight, high-rigidity magnesium alloy for covers and internal frame, keeping the camera highly rigid and light. In response to pro opinions, enhanced sealing is applied to the battery cover, terminal cover and all joints in the chassis. A double-sealed sliding mechanism replaces the hinge to the media compartment lid for better moisture resistance. Routes to dust and moisture entry have been re-examined, and a cushion around the lens mount has been added to ensure reliable operation in challenging environments.

Dual media slots, both supporting UHS-II

Dual media slots, both supporting UHS-II

The a9 II provides two media slots for SD cards, both SLOT 1 and SLOT 2 are now compatible with UHS-I and UHS-II for fast mass-volume data writing. Two cards in the slots can be used to simultaneously record or relay record data, separate RAW data from JPEG data, or stills from movies, and copy data from one card to the other. A slide lock structure prevents the memory card cover from being opened unintentionally.

Professional-level operating stamina

Professional-level operating stamina

The a9 II employs the large-capacity NP-FZ100 battery and a highly energy-efficient circuit design to double operation longevity to professional session lengths. The robust VG-C4EM vertical-position grip is available for greater operability and even longer hours of shooting. In addition to other optional accessories, USB Type-C and Multi/Micro USB ports allow external mobile batteries to power the camera for further extended recording.

Redesigned controls for confident and comfortable operation

Redesigned controls for confident and comfortable operation

A refined multi-selector, with a new surface texture for enhanced button response, lets you shift point of focus quickly and intuitively. With a thought for pro users, an improved grip shape reduces fatigue, and there is a new Exposure Compensation Dial Lock Button to increase operational security. In addition, the location and the AF-ON and other key buttons have been analysed for better feel and response. These improvements enhance your concentration on shutter release to "capture the moment" instantly.

Rating function and Image Jump Setting

Rating function and Image Jump Setting

Ratings from 1 to 5 stars can be applied to still images and maintained as the images are imported into the Imaging Edge<sup>TM</sup> desktop application (Viewer) running on a PC.

It's equipped with the outstanding 35 mm stacked CMOS image sensor with integral memory for impressively fast overall readout speed. This 24.2 MP image sensor achieves high sensitivity of up to ISO 204800 (extended) with the design of back-illuminated structure.

High-speed BIONZ X image processing engine

High-speed BIONZ X image processing engine

The camera's image-processing algorithms represent the latest generation of advancements, allowing higher levels of natural tonal gradations and more stable AWB for continuous shooting.

Uncompromised image quality

Uncompromised image quality

The combination of a 24.2 effective megapixel integral-memory full-frame stacked CMOS image sensor and the latest-generation BIONZ X make possible high-sensitivity performance up to ISO 51200, high dynamic range, and support for 14-bit RAW output and 16-bit image processing. Together, they help capture maximum detail and image quality while reproducing rich tonal gradations and natural colour, such as human skin.

Incredibly fast continuous shooting

Incredibly fast continuous shooting

Thanks to the a9 II's incredible speed, continuous shooting is possible at up to 20fps with the electronic shutter and 10fps with the mechanical shutter, to capture fast-moving subjects with either shutter mode, and even at its highest speed, the flash can be synchronised with the mechanical shutter.

AF/AE calculations up to 60 times/sec.

AF/AE calculations up to 60 times/sec.

AF/AE is calculated up to 60 times per second and is virtually uninterrupted, both while composing the image and even upon releasing the shutter. Continuous AF/AE-operated on the image sensor-locks onto and tracks erratically moving subjects with high speed, precision, and reliability. Additionally, AWB Lock capability, makes it possible to lock/unlock auto white balance operation at any time, which is useful in mixed lighting situations where natural and man-made light sources coexist. (1) AF/AE calculations (2) 60 times/sec (3) 20 frames/sec

Blackout-free Shooting with Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder<sup>TM</sup>

Blackout-free Shooting with Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder<sup>TM</sup>

In continuous shooting, the electronic shutter system banishes blackout interruption typical of optical viewfinders, and the high-speed image sensor eliminates distracting EVF display lag. A high 120fps refresh rate minimises display blurring of moving subjects, and, the Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder with approx. 3.68 million-dot high resolution, employs ZEISS T* Coating to reduce reflections, and a dirt-repelling fluorine coating on the outer lens to enhance usability on location. (A) Blackout-free Shooting (B) Shooting with blackouts

High-speed 1/32000 sec. Anti-distortion shutter

High-speed 1/32000 sec. Anti-distortion shutter

A result of Sony's image sensor innovation, this shutter achieves speeds up to 1/32000 sec., beyond the limits of mechanical systems. Additionally, the high curtain speed of the electronic shutter suppresses rolling shutter effect to excellently capture moving subjects during sports and other fast-moving activities.

Silent shooting

Silent shooting

Explore the advantages of high-speed silent shooting with a shutter that is fully digital-without a physical mechanism. The 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.

Anti-flicker shooting

Anti-flicker shooting

Flicker from fluorescent and other artificial lighting is automatically detected and shutter action is timed to minimise the effect of flicker on still images. This suppresses exposure and colour anomalies at the top and bottom of images shot at high shutter speeds, as well as exposure and colour inconsistency between continuous shots, so you can take images indoors with more confidence. (1) Anti-flicker ON (2) Anti-flicker OFF

4D FOCUS: from AF wide coverage, speed, and tracking stability

4D FOCUS: from AF wide coverage, speed, and tracking stability

4D FOCUS means highly accurate subject detection, reliable rapid autofocusing, and continuous tracking of subjects in motion, based on uninterrupted AF and an optimised AF algorithm as well as the approximately 93% AF coverage from 693 focal-plane phase-detection AF points that track random subject motion even during shutter release.

Real-time Tracking

Real-time Tracking

The Real-time Tracking technology uses AI to detect moving subjects from the wealth of information captured by the image sensor. Spatial data consisting of colour, pattern (brightness) and distance information are processed in parallel at high speed, and human and animal face and eye location data are detected continuously in real time using AI, realising high-accuracy with automatic detection and tracking performance for moving subjects.

Real-time Eye AF for humans and animals

Real-time Eye AF for humans and animals

Real-time Eye AF relies on advanced AI to continuously analyse and detect eyes from the image sensor's copious data, with left or right eye preference possible with a simple toggle. By half-pressing the shutter button, even animal eyes are detected. Team it up with Real-time Tracking for superior tracking performance of live subjects.

Precision AF effective down to EV-3 brightness

Precision AF effective down to EV-3 brightness

Low-light AF detection extends to EV-3 at ISO 100. The 'Focus Priority in Aperture Drive' option enables more accurate focusing in dim lighting and when the aperture is stopped down with the result that the precision AF system will function properly even when shooting dimly lit scenes. This opens up new possibilities in low-light and night shooting.

AF/AE-tracking continuous shooting with A-mount lenses

AF/AE-tracking continuous shooting with A-mount lenses

The body's 693-point focal-plane phase-detection AF provides wide-area coverage, fast response, and high tracking performance, not only for E-mount but also for A-mount lenses with use of a mount adaptor (LA-EA3). Continuous shooting of up to 10fps with AF tracking is possible.

Faster FTP transfer

Faster FTP transfer

You can directly transfer images to an FTP server with significantly higher speed via the camera's LAN terminal that supports the Ethernet 1000BASE-T standard. It is also possible to upload images to an FTP server through an available wireless access point, and the camera supports either transfer mode in the background while shooting. Up to nine servers may be pre-registered for fast menu selection.

Add voice memo to your images

Add voice memo to your images

The a9 II brings higher efficiency to work delivery tasks with a new Voice Memo function that allows you to record up to 60-sec audio files (.wav) describing shooting conditions or image content with automatic transcription into text, which is then attached to images.

Extending operability with Remote Camera Tool

Extending operability with Remote Camera Tool

The camera is compatible with updated Remote Camera Tool application, which, after pairing to assure a secure connection, handles remote single or multi-camera shooting using wired LAN connection in venues like sports stadiums. Remote switching of the camera's FTP server settings is also possible, as well as remote control of the saving and loading of settings to/from an SD memory card.

Support for faster data transfer; 5GHz Wi-Fi and USB 3.2 Gen 1

Support for faster data transfer; 5GHz Wi-Fi and USB 3.2 Gen 1

Connectivity has been improved, with new support for the IEEE 802.11ac 5GHz band Wi-Fi when the camera is connected in wireless mode, along with the camera's USB Type-C<sup>TM</sup> terminal that supports USB 3.2 Gen 1.

High-resolution 4K movie recording

High-resolution 4K movie recording

The camera is capable of 4K movie recording with full-pixel readout without pixel binning. You can enjoy detail-rich, full-frame movies via the oversampling effect achieved by condensing approximately 2.4 times the amount of data required for 4K (6K equivalent) for 4K output (QFHD: 3840 x 2160). Additionally, the XAVC-S format is supported at bit rates as high as 100 Mbps.

AF improvements for movie shooting

When shooting 4K movies, the camera provides control of high speed, precision, and tracking performance, via adjustable tracking sensitivity, for smooth, stable AF movie shooting. More pronounced slow focus effects are now possible, and Real-time Eye AF is now also applicable when shooting movies, detecting and tracking eyes with high focus accuracy, which is critical when shooting 4K.

Versatile movie recording functions

The a9 II provides a wide array of functions to facilitate movie shooting workflows, including interval recording, clean HDMI output, time code/user bits (TC/UB), REC Control, marker display/setting, zebra function, Slow and Quick Motion, simultaneous proxy movie recording, and extraction and separate storage of a still from a movie, among others. A combination with the ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone or XLR-K3M XLR Adaptor Kit, via the new digital audio interface, enables clear sound recording with minimised quality deterioration by sending a digital audio signal to the camera.

Improvement of camera settings saving function

Now, a dramatically increased number of camera settings can be stored in the memory card, and saved settings can be read by other cameras of the same model. Moreover, up to 10 sets of camera settings can be stored in a memory card, thanks to the Save/Load Setting function. Camera setups can also be imported to the Imaging Edge Mobile application while imported setups can be exported to other cameras of the same model.

Customisability for maximised efficiency

Thanks to My Dial, three sets of menu options can be assigned through the front/rear dials and the control wheel. By assigning frequently used functions to these dials, they become instantly available for fingertip control while a custom button is held. Function sets can be assigned individually for stills and movies.

Built for professionals

  • Easy operation in vertical orientation

    The new VG-C4EM provides controls with optimised location, size, shape and material similar to those on the camera body to simulate the operational "feel" when the camera is held vertically.
  • Extend shooting to professional length

    The α9 II uses a high-capacity NP-FZ100 battery. Alternatively, two of these can be used in the optional VG-C4EM Vertical Grip for longer shooting durations and worry-free shooting in the field.
  • Dual media slots, both supporting UHS-II

    Both media slots are compatible with UHS-I and UHS-II for fast data writing. The α9 II can simultaneously or relay record, separate RAW/JPEG data and stills/movies, and copy data between cards.
