This is the speed that fans of Sony mirrorless shooters have been waiting for! The Alpha a9 Mirrorless Digital Camera takes impressive multimedia capabilities and boosts the processing capabilities for ultra-fast continuous shooting. The a9 makes full use of a 24.2MP full-frame Exmor RS stacked CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor and is capable of shooting at up to 20 fps, recording UHD 4K video internally, and shooting with an expanded sensitivity range to ISO 204,800. Balancing the quickness of the processor is a well-matched 693-point phase-detection autofocus system that covers 93% of the image area for quick, accurate subject tracking in a range of lighting conditions. Additionally, to complement both the imaging and focusing assets, the a9 also sports 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilisation which works to dramatically minimise the appearance of camera shake when shooting handheld.

The a9’s physical construction is fully weather-sealed, so it can be used in harsh weather and environmental conditions. For clear, un-compromised viewing, a quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder is featured with an impressive 3.686m-dot resolution and 120 fps refresh rate for clear, bright, and smooth eye-level viewing. Alternatively, a 3.0" 1.44m-dot tilting touchscreen LCD is also available to assist when working from high and low angles. A customisable menu system, dual SD memory card slots and a variety of physical control dials further round out the camera's intuitive design. The camera’s built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities enable wireless image sharing and remote camera control from linked mobile devices.

24.2MP Full-Frame Exmor RS Stacked CMOS Sensor
Optimised to take speed to the next level, the a9 features a first-for-full-frame 24.2MP Exmor RS stacked CMOS that affords impressively quick readout speeds to benefit UHD 4K video recording and up to 20 fps continuous shooting. The sensor's back-illuminated design also affords high sensitivity to an extended ISO 204,800 with reduced noise for crisp and clean image quality in almost all lighting conditions. Additionally, uncompressed raw files can be recorded in 14-bit for greater flexibility during post-production, and colour fidelity.
BIONZ X Image Processor
Working in conjunction with the stacked CMOS sensor is an apt BIONZ X image processor that ensures quick processing speeds that are able to keep up with fast-paced shooting applications. The camera supports continuous shooting up to 20 fps for up to 362 consecutive JPEGs, or 241 raw frames, along with a top electronic shutter speed of 1/32,000 for freezing fast-moving subjects or working in conditions with bright lights. Benefiting the fast recording capabilities is an equally quick AF/AE metering system that functions at 60 times per second to continuously evaluate the scene, so the device can lock onto and track moving subjects. Additionally, due to the use of an electronic shutter, completely blackout-free monitoring is possible with the electronic viewfinder for more accurate compositions of moving subjects.
693-Point Phase-Detection AF
Covering 93% of the image area, a focal-plane phase-detection autofocus system incorporates 693 points along with 25 contrast-detection areas for quick and precise focusing in in a variety of lighting conditions with sensitivity down to -3 EV. The density of focusing points from this hybrid AF system also enables High-density Tracking AF Technology, so users can track moving subjects, even in different lighting conditions. The use of phase-detection points also enables the use of A-mount lenses via the optional LA-EA3 or LA-EA1 lens mount adapters with full continuous AF/AE tracking compatibility.

The apt focus system lends itself to a variety of focusing functions for refined accuracy, including Lock-on AF, which maintains focus on moving subjects throughout the use of a configurable frame that is set over the desired moving subject. The Expand Flexible Spot employs neighbouring focus points, so focus can remain on moving subjects, including times that the originally chosen point loses focus. Additionally, Eye AF can be used to base focus on recognised subjects' eyes for portraits and is available in both AF-S and AF-C modes. Autofocus can also be used in conjunction with the Focus Magnifier function for critical focus when homing in on smaller, specific subject details.

In addition to the autofocus feature, the a9 also features a Peaking MF function to benefit manual focus control by highlighting sharp edges of contrast for a more objective means of acquiring sharp focus.
5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Image Stabilization
The robust a9 packs a 5-stop effective 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilisation system that compensates for five different types of camera shake that are often encountered during handheld shooting of video and stills. This allows users to confidently use any lens, even adapted lenses, for critical imaging without encountering blur from camera shake.

For long focal lengths, the system will correct for pitch and yaw adjustments. Macro and high-magnification imagery, on the other hand, will benefit from the inclusion of vertical and horizontal shift compensation. All shooting styles will get usage out of the roll compensation. For maximum benefit, all 5 axes of stabilisation will function at all times, even when used with third-party lenses and adapters or lenses with built-in optical stabilisation.
UHD 4K Video Recording in XAVC S Format
Internal recording of UHD 4K movies is possible in multiple frame rates up to 30 fps and, based on the Super35mm recording area and effective 20MP (6000 x 3376) resolution, 2.4x oversampling renders greater detail and full pixel readout is possible, that is void of pixel binning, for higher quality imagery with reduced moiré and aliasing. Full HD 1080p recording is also supported in frame rates up to 120 fps, and both resolutions utilize the 100 Mbps XAVC S format contained within an MP4 wrapper with 4:2:0 sampling. The high-speed, 120 fps recording also enables 4x and 5x slow-motion movie recording with the frame rate set to either 30p or 24p. In addition to high-resolution internal recording, uncompressed HDMI output also enables the use of an optional external recorder for clean 4K recording with 4:2:2 sampling.

With 4K video recording, 8MP stills can also be produced during playback by taking a frame grab from a movie and storing it as a separate file.
Slow & Quick Motion
Take more control over your video capture capabilities with a variety of new frame rates available in an S&Q mode. This feature enables operators to capture Full HD video at one of either steps between 1-120 fps. These settings will allow you to speed up or slow down moving scenes and is also NTSC/PAL switchable.
Zebra and Gamma Display Assist
An enhanced Zebra function is well-suited to working with S-Log gamma profiles and assists with monitoring exposure values in high-contrast scenes. Video signal level targets can be set from 0 to 109, and specific ranges can be set to make exposure level adjustments easier.

In contrast, a Gamma Display Assist function is also available that displays scenes with natural contrast when recording with S-Log settings. This function converts imagery to the ITU709 profile for easier monitoring on-camera.
Time Code and User Bit Settings
Use a time code to record hours, minutes, seconds, frames on image data for more precise editing. The User Bit function is included to record time, date and scene number to aid in editing together footage from more than one camera.
