  • Sony Alpha a9 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only)

    Bringing the speed Sony mirrorless shooters have been waiting for, the Alpha a9 Mirrorless Digital Camera takes impressive multimedia capabilities and ups the processing capabilities for ultra-fast continuous shooting. Making use of a 24.2MP full-frame Exmor RS stacked CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor, the a9 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 accurate and quick subject tracking in a variety of lighting conditions. Additionally, complementing both the imaging and focusing assets, the a9 also sports 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization to minimize the appearance of camera shake when shooting handheld.

    Matching its professional imaging capabilities is a well-rounded physical construction that is fully weather-sealed for use in trying environmental conditions. For clear, uncompromised 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 benefit working from high and low angles. Dual SD memory card slots, a customizable menu system, and a variety of physical control dials further round out the camera's intuitive design, and built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enables wireless image sharing and remote camera control from linked mobile devices.

    24.2MP Full-Frame Exmor RS Stacked CMOS Sensor
    Poised for speed, the a9 features a first-for-full-frame 24.2MP Exmor RS stacked CMOS that affords impressively quick readout speeds to benefit up to 20 fps continuous shooting and UHD 4K video recording. The sensor's back-illuminated design also affords high sensitivity to an extended ISO 204,800 with reduced noise for clean image quality in a variety of lighting conditions. Additionally, uncompressed raw files can be recorded in 14-bit for greater color fidelity and post-production flexibility.
    BIONZ X Image Processor
    Working in conjunction with the stacked CMOS sensor is an apt BIONZ X image processor that ensures quick processing speeds to keep up with fast-paced shooting applications. Continuous shooting up to 20 fps is supported 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 bright lighting conditions. Benefitting the fast recording capabilities is an equally quick AF/AE metering system that functions at 60 times per second to continuously evaluate the scene in order to lock onto and track moving subjects. Additionally, due to the use of an electronic shutter, totally 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 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, which is adept at tracking moving subjects in a variety of 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 also 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, and Expand Flexible Spot, which employs neighboring focus points to retain focus on moving subjects even if the originally selected point loses focus. Additionally, Eye AF can be used to base focus on recognized 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 minute subject details.

    In addition to autofocus, 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
    Packed into the robust a9 is a 5-stop effective 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system that compensates for five different types of camera shake encountered during handheld shooting of stills and video. 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 horizontal and vertical shift compensation. All shooting styles will get usage out of the roll compensation. All 5 axes of stabilization will function at all times, even when used with third-party lenses and adapters or lenses with built-in optical stabilization.
    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.

    4K video recording also avails the ability to produce 8MP stills 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 will allow shooters to capture Full HD video at one of either steps between 1-120 fps. These settings will allow you to slow down action as well as speed up a slow-moving scene. This setting is also NTSC/PAL switchable.
    Enhanced Zebra Function
    An enhanced Zebra function is ideally suited to aid in 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.
    Time Code and User Bit Settings
    A time code can be used to record hours, minutes, seconds, frames on image data for more precise editing while the User Bit function can record date, time, and scene number to aid in editing together footage from multiple cameras.
    Body Design

Sony A9 Reviews

Alpha a9 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 100-400mm Lens and Flash Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 77.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new standard for mirrorless cameras. I was hoping the A9 would impress me and it went above and beyond. I shoot a lot of family events with about 20 people in constant motion. The speed of the camera is outstanding but I was surprised at how the speed of the autofocus system was improved. I rarely miss a shot to poor focus anymore. Love the change adding a dial to the upper left for focus mode and drive mode. Makes if that much quicker to set up changing shots. The new battery really does put the old ones to shame. Guess what I like about Sony is they listen to their customers and get us what we need/want. They don't give the camera away, but I have to say, it's worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic camera I have shot Canon since 1973 and I am 69 years old. I was shooting with a Canon 5D mark lll all L glass. It was getting too heaving and I needed to make a change and Sony was leading the pack in mirrorless. I have been using it for less than three weeks and I can not be more pleased. The set up was pretty simple and the biggest plus for me is incredible fast focusing. I still like Canon but I have had three shoulder surgeries in the past year and had to make a switch to a lighter camera. I am very pleased with my Sony a 9 and would recommend it highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More keepers. More fun. I own a Canon 1Dx II, Canon 5DIV, and Nikon D500. I owned the Sony a7rII but sold it as at the end of the day, it never focused nearly as well as the aforementioned cameras. I'll put it simply, the a9 gives me more keepers than my Canon 1Dx II, and is easier and more fun to use to boot. I have the a9 configured to where I can get 4 different AF Areas (with AF activated by the push AND associated with preferred AF-S or AF-C) with 4 different buttons. It's a dream. Never really need to go into the menus to change AF Mode nor AF Area. Keep going Sony...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera for wildlife The first mirrorless camera that can keep up with wildlife. As a long time Nikon user I've had a bit of a learning curve but it has been worth it. A silent shutter is the future of wildlife photography. It has allowed me to make photos that a regular shutter sound would have scarred off. Sure would be nice if Nikon would do the same. They still have a better selection of lenses. Do you really need 20 shots per second? Sometimes you do. But it can really increase your editing time, so you do not want it on high speed all the time. The only complaint that I have is that it will not automatically use the second memory card when the first one is full. Hopefully Sony will fix that in a future firmware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Insane Camera! I had the opportunity to use this camera at the Sony Alpha Collective Kando Trip 1.0 a few weeks ago in California. Just picking this camera up, I could feel the improvements over the previous Sony models. It just felt sturdy. The autofocus tracking is like a cheat code honestly. It's so fast and rarely misses. The 'no blackout' feature is a much needed upgrade from previous models! Some points worth noting are, of course: the dynamic range, the ISO performance, build quality.....10/10. I couldn't put this camera down the whole week. Everything about this camera screams quality. Worth every penny. I'll be adding this camera to my arsenal soon enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beast in a Small Package - My main Surf Photography Body I have the A7 III and was waiting on the rumored new announcements. However, when Sony dropped the price on this - I could not hesitate. This works amazingly with the Sigma MC-11 and 500mm. It will reach 20fps if you let up on the autofocus and has to be hitting 10-12 even with continuous. So, when the surfer hits the lip I momentarily let up on the back-button focus and its grabbing 20fps. Focus is almost 100% keepers regardless of Sony or 3rd party lens used. I have a couple G-Masters (24mm and 100-400), which are amazing and then I use the MC-11 with some Canon/Sigma glass I have left over. Truly an amazing camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Mirrorless DSLR Been shooting for 30 years I go back to film days and the Nikon F. Technology has come a long ways mostly for the better. I have had Nikon / Cannon / Hassblad for those that remember the 2 1/4 quarter days. Great features like 20 frames continuous shooting and ISO numbers that are incredible The new Sony A9 is the best camera I have used in many years. I was a Cannon fan and a friend convinced me to try Sony. I dumped all my Cannon gear and went Sony. Sony A9 best action camera but also great at portrait / landscape and event work. Also the lens are great better than Cannon don't use Nikon lens enough to compare. Buy it you won't be sorry :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from INSANE SPEED WITH NO BLACK OUT!!! As a Sony Artisan of Imagery and adventure sport photographer, I have been waiting patiently for this camera to be released. I was in need of a faster camera... one that could shoot more frames per second. Well, Sony delivered! Not only am I blown away by the 20 frames-per-second RAW capability with almost no buffer, but the fact the camera will do this with NO shutter black out, is unbelievable!!! In other words, as you're shooting stills and looking through the viewfinder, it almost looks as though you're shooting video... a continuous image. This is of course extremely helpful for tracking fast-moving subjects.

What is the specs for HDMI output? I want to know if there is a higher fps when i use it with my atomos inferno...
Asked by: Anonymous
Out of the camera, you will get a clean 4:2:2 output, and that is what the recorder will record. The Atomos Inferno will give you the ability to increase the UH4k to 6fps & the 1080p to 120fps with the Sony a9.

Does it include wireless capabilities? If so, how fast can they transfer images? What are the limitations?
Asked by: Grace
Yes, the Sony Alpha a9 Mirrorless Digital Camera has built in Wi-Fi capabilities; the camera is Wi-Fi Compatible, IEEE 802.11b/g/n(2.4GHz band). Wireless transfer speed will depend on the strength of your Wi-Fi connection and the device to which you are transferring images. The stronger your Wi-Fi connection, the faster your transfer speed. Another limitation would be the write/read speed of your memory card. Ensure you are using the fastest card possible so the camera can pull the data from the card and transfer it wirelessly to your host device.
