Sony Alpha A9 Video Reviews


The Sony Alpha A9 is a new flagship 24.2 Megapixel full-frame mirrorless camera, aimed at professional sports photographers. Announced in April 2017, the camera features the first full-frame stacked CMOS sensor which includes integrated memory that enables data readout of 20 times faster when compared to previous full-frame sensors. This allows the A9 to shoot at 20fps with autofocus for up to 241 RAW files or 362 JPEG images. The A9 employs a fully electronic shutter to allow fast, silent and vibration-free shooting, shutter speeds up to 1/32000, and electronic composition with no blackout. An embedded phase-detect AF system features 693 AF points spread across 93% of the frame and operates at a very fast 60fps.

The key highlight of the Sony A9 is its 24.2 MP full-frame stacked Exmor RS image sensor, a configuration that integrated DRAM memory modules, a high-speed processing circuit and the Bionz X image processing engine are all lined up behind the image sensor. As Sony explains it, the Sony A9 can send imaging data through the sensor rather than around it. It’s a lot like a processor architecture in which cores can easily share information directly and quickly. This technical design advancement results in a sensor that produces 20 times faster data readout, which in turn enables the Sony A9 to shoot at 20fps for up to 241 raw or 362 JPEG images.

Key spec includes A 24MP Full Frame Stacked CMOS, 20 fps continuous shooting with full AF (electronic shutter, 12-bit files), Continuous shooting buffer of up to 241 compressed Raw files (362 JPEG), 10 fps continuous shooting with AF when adapting lenses, 5.0-step 5-axis image stabilization, 3.7m dot OLED viewfinder (1280 x 960 pixels) with up to 120 fps update, 1.44m dot rear touchscreen LCD, and Oversampled UHD 4K/24p video from full sensor width (1.24x crop for 30p).
