ILCE-9: α9 featuring full-frame stacked CMOS sensor
A new dimension of photographic speed: A game-changing image sensor from Sony makes conventional camera mechanisms redundant, achieving speed and performance that are beyond the capabilities of mechanical devices. What's more, freedom from mechanical noise and vibration opens up a vast new world of imaging opportunities.
Driving force for full-electronic revolution: Innovative full-frame stacked CMOS sensor with integral memory α9 liberates you from the limits of conventional SLRs that rely on mechanical systems. First to use high-speed stacked design, its 24.2-megapixel full-frame image sensor temporarily stores large-volume data in the integral memory for overall 20 times faster readout speed. The combination of the CMOS sensor and the enhanced BIONZ X™ image processing engine brings you true digital freedom.
High-speed continuous shooting at up to 20fps: The groundbreaking full-frame Exmor® RS CMOS sensor and the BIONZ X processor team up for 20fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking. Stunning, high-speed performance and ample buffer lets you capture the decisive moment.
No noise distraction: An anti-distortion 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
No unwanted vibration: During SLR shooting, mirror shock and shutter release shock cause subtle vibration. α9, however, has a vibration-free electronic shutter that can keep the camera stable, for razor-sharp images.
Swift, accurate and reliable AF: Discover enhanced AF - more precise, virtually unfailing focus, swift reaction to fast motion, low-light reliability and consistent tracking in continuous shooting.
4D FOCUS: Stunningly wide coverage: 693. Remarkable number of phase-detection AF points 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.
