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 CMOS sensor and enhanced BIONZ X™ image-processing engine brings you true digital freedom with Stacked back-illuminated structure with integral memory.

High-speed continuous shooting at up to 20fps

Groundbreaking full-frame Exmor RS® CMOS sensor and BIONZ X™ processor team up for 20fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking. Stunning high-speed performance and ample buffer let you capture the decisive moment.

Blackout-free shooting

Non-mechanical electronic shutter eliminates blackout with typical SLR mirror action. An uninterrupted view of the subject is available even during shutter release, with 60fps live-view capability and minimal display lag in continuous shooting.

Note: This camera is equipped with electronic and mechanical shutters. The features described in this section are primarily related to electronic shutter operation.

AF/AE calculations up to 60 times/s

Light directly reaches the image sensor without mechanical interruption. An ingenious fusion of mirrorless construction and new speed-enhancing technologies provides AF/AE at the full-frame focal plane.

Electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 s

Electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 s far surpass mechanical shutters for a new imaging expression. You can also maintain shallow depth of field without an ND filter, even under bright conditions.

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.

Mobility leads to unprecedented opportunities

Professional features and performance in a compact body. The freedom of mobility inspires fresh creativity.

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—covers approximately 93% of the image area. High-precision performance assures your focus on subjects.

Eye AF for more precise focusing

Eye detection—enhanced by 30% through improved face detection—keeps the subject’s eye in focus, even if the face is turned at an angle or partially shaded. Wide focal-plane phase-detection AF sensor shows its ability in challenging shots.

Reliable even in low light

Capture subjects with high AF precision down to light levels as low as EV-3 at ISO 100, due to the high sensitivity image sensor.

A-mount lens AF support

Focal-plane phase-detection AF system with 693 AF points functions reliably. Enjoy up to 10fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking even when you use A-mount lenses with a mount adapter (LA-EA3). Capture subjects with high AF precision down to light levels as low as EV-3 at ISO 100, due to the high sensitivity image sensor.

New CMOS sensor for imaging excellence

High sensitivity, a back-illuminated configuration, gapless on-chip lens architecture, and other Sony innovations deliver stunning images in a wide range of photographic situations. Standard ISO range is ISO 100-51200, expandable to ISO 50-204800 with minimum noise.

Technology for high-quality images

Utilise high-quality imaging that unites all available image sensor technologies—including back-illuminated structure, gapless on-chip lens architecture.

Uncompressed 14-bit RAW

Uncompressed 14-bit RAW format is supported, and it or the current compressed RAW format can be selected as required. Uncompressed 14-bit RAW is a good choice in situations where the sensor’s wide dynamic range and fine gradation reproduction will benefit the images being captured.

Beautiful 4K imaging

High-resolution quality of 4K movies

Full-pixel readout with no pixel binning makes it possible to condense approximately 2.4 times the amount of data required for 4K (the equivalent of the amount of data required for 6K) into 3,840 x 2,160 4K output. This oversampling process plus full-frame pixel readout without binning results in the highest possible 4K movie image quality.

5-axis image stabilization

New body-integrated 5-axis image stabilization unit offers a 5.0-stop shutter speed advantage. The live-view monitor image is also stabilized, so you can compose images easily even when shooting a fast-moving subject. (1) Yaw (2) Pitch (3) Roll

Dual media slots

Use two slots—one for SD and one for SD/Memory Stick cards—to simultaneously backup still/movie data, save RAW/JPEG images to different cards, and copy between cards. Lower card slot supporting UHS-II type cards is available for fast transfer speed.

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.

FTP file transfer

A new terminal for wired LAN connection lets you transfer still images to an FTP server for viewing and management. Since FTPS (File Transfer Protocol over SSL/TLS) is supported, image files can be encrypted while being transferred.

My Menu & new menu interface

A new My Menu feature lets you register up to 30 menu items for instant recall, arrange items in any order, and erase unused items. Also, primary menus have been reorganised for smoother search and operation.

New Imaging Edge software suite from Sony

Imaging Edge software suite can maximise image quality, improve production efficiency. “Remote” to remotely control shooting while monitoring on PC; “Edit” to develop RAW data into high-quality photos; and “Viewer” to view, rate and select photos.

Capture One for Sony

Capture One Express (for Sony) is a free award-winning editing software that provides RAW development, easy management and powerful editing tools. Capture One Pro (for Sony) can be bought for even more editing tools and tethered shooting capability.
