Is this a DSLR killer? Worlds first Full Frame Stack Sensor - 20fps and Blackout-free Shooting
Innovative full-frame stacked CMOS sensor with integral memory
a9 liberates you from the limits of conventional SLRs that rely on mechanical systems. First1 to use high-speed stacked design, its 24.2-megapixel2 full-frame image sensor temporarily stores large-volume data in the integral memory for overall 20 times faster readout speed3. The combination of CMOS sensor and enhanced BIONZ X image-processing engine brings you true digital freedom.

High-speed continuous shooting at up to 20fps
Groundbreaking full-frame Exmor RS CMOS sensor and BIONZ X processor team up for 20fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking. Stunning high-speed performance and ample buffer let you capture the decisive moment.

Blackout-free shooting
Non-mechanical electronic shutter eliminates blackout with typical SLR mirror action. An uninterrupted view of the subject is available even during shutter release, with 60fps live-view capability and minimal display lag in continuous shooting.

AF/AE calculations up to 60 times/sec
Light directly reaches the image sensor without mechanical interruption. An ingenious fusion of mirrorless construction and new speed-enhancing technologies provides AF/AE at the full-frame focal plane.

Electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32000 sec
Electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32000 sec. far surpass mechanical shutters for a new imaging expression. You can also maintain shallow depth of field without an ND filter, even under bright conditions.

No noise distraction
An anti-distortion electronic shutter allows silent shooting without mechanical mirror and shutter noise. It#s ideal for sports and subjects that demand quiet operation, greatly expanding camera versatility

No unwanted vibration
During SLR shooting, mirror shock and shutter release shock cause subtle vibration. a9, however, has a vibration-free electronic shutter that can keep the camera stable, for razor-sharp images.

693. Remarkable number of phase-detection AF points
The phase-detection points on the surface of an image sensor # 693 AF points # covers approximately 93% of the image area. High-precision performance assures your focus on subjects.

Fast Hybrid AF achieves rapid AF for full-frame photos
Capture fast-moving subjects with reliable rapid AF. The speed and accuracy of this Fast Hybrid AF System are further improved in combination with the enhanced BIONZ X image processing engine.

Eye AF for more precise focusing
Eye detection # enhanced by 30% through improved face detection # keeps the subject#s eye in focus, even if the face is turned at an angle or partially shaded. Wide focal-plane phase-detection AF sensor shows its ability in challenging shots.

New CMOS sensor for imaging excellence
High sensitivity, a back-illuminated configuration, gapless on-chip lens architecture, and other Sony innovations deliver stunning images in a wide range of photographic situations. Standard ISO range is ISO 100-51200, expandable to ISO 50-20480015 with minimum noise.

Uncompressed 14-bit RAW
Uncompressed 14-bit RAW format is supported, and it or the current compressed RAW format can be selected as required. Uncompressed 14-bit RAW is a good choice in situations where the sensor's wide dynamic range and fine gradation reproduction will benefit the images being captured.

High-resolution quality of 4K movies
Full-pixel readout with no pixel binning makes it possible to condense approximately 2.4 times17 the amount of data required for 4K (the equivalent of the amount of data required for 6K) into 3840 x 2160 4K output. This oversampling process plus full-frame pixel readout without binning results in the highest possible 4K movie image quality.

Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder
The new high-resolution 3686k-dot electronic viewfinder (EVF) shows a clear image with fine detail. The legendary ZEISS T* Coating greatly reduces reflections. Smooth EVF images realised by 120fps frame rate even allow you to easily track a subject in fast motion. Fluorine coating on the outermost lens provides improved protection from dirt.

5-axis image stabilisation
New body-integrated 5-axis image stabilisation unit offers a 5.0-stop shutter speed advantage. The live-view monitor image is also stabilised, so you can compose images easily even when shooting a fast-moving subject.

Battery stamina for professional use
A newly developed NP-FZ100 battery offers approximately twice the life of the previous NP-FW50. Capture up to approx. 480 still frames on one charge # and further increase the number of shots with an attached optional vertical grip (sold separately) that can hold two batteries.

Use two slots one for SD and one for SD/Memory Stick cards
To simultaneously backup still/movie data, save RAW/JPEG images to different cards, and copy between cards. Lower card slot supporting UHS-II type cards is available for fast transfer speed.

FTP file transfer
A new terminal for wired LAN connection lets you transfer still images to an FTP server for viewing and management. Since FTPS (File Transfer Protocol over SSL/TLS) is supported, image files can be encrypted while being transferred.
