Product Details

Sony Alpha a9 24.2 Megapixel Mirrorless Digital Camera Body - ILCE-9

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

Features:

  • New full-frame stacked CMOS sensor with integral memory
    α9 is the mirrorless camera that delivers next-generation high-speed performance far exceeding SLRs. It's equipped with the world's first 35mm stacked CMOS image sensor with integral memory for 20 times faster overall readout speed. This 24.2MP image sensor achieves high sensitivity of up to ISO 204800 (extended) with the design of back-illuminated structure. (1) Pixel area (2) Integral memory (3) Hi-speed signal processing circuit (4) Image processing engine
  • High-speed 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
  • 20fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking
    A combination of groundbreaking high-speed full-frame Exmor RS CMOS sensor and high-speed BIONZ X processor enables 20fps continuous shooting without a break for as many as 362 shots. Thanks to the capability of displaying subjects nearly as naturally as they appear in reality, EVF lets you "sync" your intentions with camera behavior
  • Fast shutter release at 1/32000 sec., achieved silently
    Explore the advantages of a high-speed silent shutter that is fully digital — without a physical mechanism. A result of Sony's image sensor innovation, this shutter achieves speeds up to 1/32000 sec., beyond the limits of mechanical systems. High curtain speed of the electronic shutter suppresses rolling shutter effect and shows excellent performance in capturing moving subjects during sports and other fast-moving activities
  • AF/AE calculations up to 60 times/sec.
    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 — operated on the image sensor — to lock onto and track erratically moving subjects with significantly high speed, precision, and reliability. (1) AF/AE calculations (2) 60times/sec (3) 20 frames/sec
  • Blackout-free shooting
    Thanks to the non-mechanical electronic shutter system, you can observe the reality of what you're shooting through the electronic viewfinder even during continuous shooting, without blackout interruption that typically occurs among optical viewfinders due to up-and-down mirror motion. Enhanced speed of the image sensor eliminates distracting EVF display lag in continuous shooting, so that you can compose images with natural comfort, like seeing scenes with your own eyes. (A) Blackout-free shooting (B) Shooting with blackout
  • Precision AF effective down to EV-3 brightness
    Low-light AF detection down to EV-3 at ISO 100 has been achieved. The precision AF system will function properly even when shooting dimly lit scenes. This opens dramatic new possibilities in low-light and night shooting
  • 693-point focal-plane phase-detection AF
    α9 brings you 693 phase-detection AF points in a high-density focal-plane AF system, providing distinctively wide and dense AF point coverage over approximately 93% of the image area. This enables more accurate, efficient, and reliable focus on subjects throughout the frame
  • Enhanced Eye AF
    Eye AF can capture intriguing facial expressions with enhanced accuracy through 30% improved precision of eye detection. This enhanced feature automatically focuses on and even tracks focus on a subject's eye as the face moves or turns to a 3/4 view, extending your freedom to frame a great shot
  • Recall Custom Setting during Hold
    Memorized exposure settings (shutter speed, aperture, AF area, etc.) can be assigned to custom buttons for temporary recall while the button is held. For example, if you shoot sports in a stadium, you might want to quickly capture a shot of the scoreboard, requiring a temporary change in exposure, and then go back to the action
  • AF/AE-tracking continuous shooting with A-mount lenses
    The body's 693-point focal-plane phase-detection AF provides wide-area coverage, fast response, and high tracking performance, not only for E-mount but also for A-mount lenses with use of a mount adaptor (LA-EA3). Continuous shooting of up to 10fps with AF tracking is possible
  • Focus Area Registration function
    Frequently used focus area setting can be memorized and recalled via custom button assignments for fast, convenient one-push access when needed. This can be handy when the ideal focus point changes often, for example, with a tennis stroke. In addition to the focus point, the focus area can be set as required for optimum focus performance with the scene being photographed
  • Dual slots for convenient data management
    Two media slots are provided for you: one for SD cards and one for SD/Memory Stick cards. Lower card slot supporting UHS-II type cards is available for fast transfer speed. Still or movie data can be simultaneously recorded to both cards for backup, or RAW/JPEG images or stills/movies can be recorded to different cards. Data can also be copied between cards
  • High-resolution Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder
    See your subject with a bright image for natural, seamless shooting. Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder has approx. 3686k-dot high resolution with 0.78x finder magnification, corner-to-corner clarity, and ZEISS® T* Coating to reduce reflections. Display mode at high 120fps refresh rates provides a smooth image with minimal display blur when shooting moving subjects. Fluorine coating is applied on the outer-most lens for improved protection from dirt
  • 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. Real-time effects can be monitored via live view. (1) Yaw (2) Pitch (3) Roll
  • FTP transfer via LAN terminal on the camera body
    Using a new terminal for wired LAN connection, you can conveniently transfer still image files to a specified FTP server for viewing and management as needed. A wired LAN connection gives you the highest possible transfer speeds for large image files — an ideal solution for studio photography. Moreover, since FTPS (File Transfer Protocol over SSL/TLS) is supported, image files can be encrypted with SSL or TLS while being transferred, assuring a higher level of security
  • Renewed operability and My Menu
    Set up your camera for peak performance and instant ability to capture unique moments. My Menu allows menu items to be registered for instant recall, and you can also create your own original custom menu to suit your needs. In addition, custom button assignments let you customize the camera interface to perfectly match your individual shooting preferences. Up to 72 functions can be assigned. Moreover, stacked drive mode and focus mode dials provide fast access, AF-ON button offers a handy means to activate auto-focus by simple pressing when shooting stills or movies, and multi-selector can be used as an efficient way to shift AF points
  • 3.0-type 1440k-dot LCD screen
    Take charge of α9 performance with this 3.0-type LCD touch screen, featuring 1440k dots for enhanced resolution and detailed viewing. Convenient Touch Focus feature also allows you to freely choose an area of focus by simply touching on the LCD screen. The screen tilts as much as 107° upwards and 41° downwards for flexible hold and framing
  • Location Information Link via Bluetooth
    Location Information Link makes the most of α9 capabilities. The camera can be paired with PlayMemories Mobile app installed on a compatible mobile phone or tablet device to acquire location data, record it on still images, and correct camera date/time and location settings. PlayMemories Home application can be used on a personal computer to organize imported still images on a map
  • One-touch remote & One-touch sharing
    Use one-touch remote to turn a smartphone or tablet into a viewfinder/remote control. One-touch sharing transfers photos/videos to your device for social network site (SNS) sharing. Just install a PlayMemories Mobile™ app via Wi-Fi to your NFC-enabled Android device, and then touch the device to the camera to connect them. If you don't have NFC, use QR code compatibility to pair the devices
  • File Name Setting for easy organization
    Customize the first three characters of a file name on the camera. While the name starts with "DSC" by default, you can change and register three characters of your choice. This helps photographers manage files easily, especially when working with multiple cameras during assignments
  • Support for uncompressed 14-bit RAW format
    For RAW recording, 14-bit RAW output and 16-bit image processing help preserve maximum detail and produce images of the highest quality with rich tonal gradations. The 14-bit RAW (Sony ARW) format ensures optimal quality for later image adjustment (via Image Data Converter or other software)
  • Enhanced P-TTL flash metering
    Your compositions can benefit significantly from reflected light via pre-flash fired a moment before the main flash is precisely metered. Moreover, high-precision lighting control not easily affected by background conditions is provided mainly around the subject area, utilizing distance data from the lens in use. The result is stable command of illumination that suppresses underexposure, which tends to occur with white clothing and walls, as well as overexposure that may affect lighting of black clothing and nightscapes
  • Sync terminal
    Compatible external flash units with standard sync terminals or cables can be directly connected for convenient flash synchronization, enhancing photographic expression with flash shooting
  • Tough magnesium alloy body
    α9 body is built for solid reliability, steady handling, and durability in the field. Its internal structure and top, front and rear covers are all made of strong, rigid magnesium alloy. Body strength and rigidity and robust lens mount give you a solid foundation for lens mounting and rugged use, even with large, heavy telephoto and movie lenses
  • Reliable dust- and moisture-resistant design
    Enjoy carefree shooting in tough environments, with comprehensive dust-and moisture-resistance measures that help guard against moisture and dust. Protection includes sealing around buttons, dials, media jack cover, and enclosure edges featuring tongue-and-groove joints for double shielding to tightly interlock panels and components
  • High-resolution 4K movie recording
    Capture outstanding high-quality 4K movies with this latest full-frame camera. Full-pixel readout without pixel binning for high-resolution 4K movies makes it possible to deliver detail-rich full-frame movies via the oversampling effect achieved by condensing approximately 2.4 times the amount of data required for 4K (6K equivalent) for 4K output (QFHD: 3840 x 2160). Furthermore, the high speed of the newly developed image sensor reduces the rolling shutter effect
  • Improved Fast Hybrid AF for movie shooting
    Keep images sharp and clear in shooting 4K movies. Fast Hybrid AF for movie recording has evolved and its AF area has been extended to nearly the same width as that for stills, enabling high-speed high-precision AF throughout the frame. Also, further reduction of speed at the "low" end of AF speed enables more pronounced slow focus effects
  • XAVC S for high-bitrate recording
    XAVC S format is used for 4K and HD recording. High bitrates of up to 100Mbps for 4K 30p (25p)/24p recording, and up to 50Mbps for full-HD 60p (50p)/30p (25p)/24p recording, ensure beautifully detailed movies with minimal compression noise. Since 100Mbps recording is possible even at the highest 120fps in full-HD, high-quality slow-motion sequences can be created during post processing
  • Slow and Quick motion
    Vary the pace of movie footage to enhance viewing interest and enjoyment. Instantly selectable via a dial, "S&Q" mode supports slow and quick motion, with frame rates from 1fps to 120fps (100fps) selectable in eight steps for up to 60x (50x) quick motion and 5x (4x) slow motion, recordable at Full HD (50Mbps) quality. You can "play with time" by compressing movement or extending a moment, and then accent ordinary footage with these interludes to add comic or dramatic emphasis
  • Zebra functions
    Simplify exposure with Zebra. Target video brightness from 0-109%, set +10% and -10% range, check zebra pattern for areas in range, and see minimum brightness to avoid blown-out highlights
  • Supported in Capture One Express (for Sony)
