Sony Alpha a9 Full Frame Mirrorless Camera (Body Only)

The Sony Alpha a9 Full Frame Mirrorless Interchangeable-Lens Camera (Body Only) is a technologically advanced and innovative digital camera with unmatched imaging performance. It boasts record achievements: It's the world's first full-frame stacked CMOS sensor (from the world's largest sensor manufacturer) and offers the world's most phase detection AF points at 693. The revolutionary image sensor combined with high-speed processing help make the a9 a game changer. The a9 also has a viewfinder that offers blackout-free continuous shooting at fast speeds. It offers high shutter speeds without noise or vibration, plus AF and AE tracking to follow moving subjects flawlessly without lag. These and many other features make the a9 a reliable mirrorless digital camera.

Full-Frame Stacked CMOS Sensor

The Sony Alpha a9 provides the first-ever 35mm full-frame stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor with integrated memory that enables data speed processing at up to 20x faster than previous full-frame mirrorless cameras. This sensor boosts image quality with the new, enhanced BIONZ X processing engine and front-end LSI, plus 24.2 megapixel resolution.

BIONZ X Image Processing Engine

Achieving processing speed beyond the previous model, BIONZ X image processing engine is optimized for speed to reliably capture fast-moving subjects and realized 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.

Up to 20fps Continuous Shooting

With the a9, get up to 20fps continuous shooting at full 24.2MP resolution, providing up to 241 RAW / 362 JPEG images, and continuous autofocus/auto exposure tracking, with up to 60 AF/AE tracking calculations per second.

AF/AE is calculated up to 60 times per second and virtually uninterrupted, not only while composing but also when releasing the shutter. You can depend on this continuous AF/AE to lock onto and track erratically moving subjects with significantly high speed, precision, and reliability.

Blackout-Free Viewfinder

An unprecedented blackout free OLED Tru-Finder provides continuous shooting at fast speeds with 100% frame coverage. Bolstered by the Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder EVF, you get an uninterrupted view of your subject with a 60 fps live-view refresh rate.

Silent, Vibration-Free Anti-Distortion Shutter

A fully electronic, high-speed, anti-distortion shutter achieves speeds as high as 1/32,000 sec, far exceeding the limits of a mechanical system. The electronic system delivers sharp images free from disruptive mechanical noise. The shutter enables wide open shooting in bright conditions or freezing fast-moving objects in moments of clarity.

World's Most Phase Detection Points

With 693 focal plane Phase Detection AF points, the a9 offers the world's most AF points, and the points cover a wide 93% of the frame. Overall, the a9 provides a fast, wide and dependable 4D Focus system with fast Hybrid AF with approximately 25% faster AF operation than the 7R II. It reliably tracks and captures even the fastest moving subjects across the frame, even at 20fps. The AF system features Eye AF, lock-on AF and AF tracking.

Body-Integrated 5-Axis Image Stabilization

The body-integrated image stabilization 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 you're shooting at longer focal lengths, in close-ups, or at night. Camera shake compensation is equivalent to using a 5.0-stop faster shutter speed, allowing stable determination of composition at times of capturing subjects in high-speed motion.
