Sony Alpha A9 Body
Pre-Order Now Expected Release Date: May 31, 2017
α9 goes beyond the norms of camera function and operation, offering new expressive potential for professional creators.
This is the E-mount full-frame interchangeable lens digital camera to feature a 35mm full-frame stacked CMOS sensor with integral memory. The sensor’s stacked structure and integral memory contribute to the unprecedented readout speed achieved by the sensor and image-processing engine.High speed enables continuous shooting at up to 20 fps, blackout-free shooting, up to 60 AF/AE tracking calculations per second, silent, vibration-free Anti-Distortion Shutter operation at up to 1/32,000 sec., and other capabilities that add up to an all-new shooting experience without interference from mechanical devices.
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. α9 provides continuous tracking of moving subjects for foolproof AF/AE while traditional SLRs can only challenge such AF/AE performance improvements.
Moreover, α9 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 α9.
