According to Sony, the a9 is the most technologically advanced, innovative digital camera they have ever created.
The new α9 offers a level of imaging performance that is simply unmatched by any other camera – mirrorless, SLR or otherwise. It features the world’s first full-frame stacked CMOS sensor, 24.2 MP2 resolution. Plus, it offers continuous shooting at up to 20fps, 693 point focal plane phase detection AF points with 60 AF/AE tracking calculations per second, silent vibration-free shooting, and more.
- 24.2-megapixel2 35 mm full-frame stacked CMOS sensor with integral memory
- BIONZ X image processing engine
- High-speed continuous shooting of up to 20fps4 with AF/AE tracking
- 693-point wide-area phase-detection AF
- 5-axis image stabilisation with effectiveness equivalent to 5.0-stop19 slower shutter speed
Featuring Full-Frame Stacked CMOS Sensor
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.
* This camera is equipped with electronic and mechanical shutters. The features described in this section are primarily related to electronic shutter operation.
Innovative full-frame stacked CMOS sensor with integral memory
α9 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.

Capture the previously uncatchable
High-speed continuous shooting at up to 20fpsGroundbreaking full-frame Exmor RS® CMOS sensor and BIONZ X™ processor team up for 20fps continuous shooting4 with AF/AE tracking. Stunning high-speed performance and ample buffer let you capture the decisive moment.
Blackout-free shootingNon-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.

Electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 sElectronic shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 s7 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.

Silence expands photographic potential
No noise distractionAn anti-distortion8 electronic shutter allows silent shooting9 without mechanical mirror and shutter noise. It’s ideal for sports and subjects that demand quiet operation, greatly expanding camera versatility
No unwanted vibrationDuring SLR shooting, mirror shock and shutter release shock cause subtle vibration. α9, however, has a vibration-free electronic shutter that can keep the camera stable, for razor-sharp images.
Mobility leads to unprecedented opportunities
Professional features and performance in a compact body. The freedom of mobility inspires fresh creativity.
Swift, accurate, and reliable AF
Discover enhanced AF—more precise, virtually unfailing focus, swift reaction to fast motion, low-light reliability, and consistent tracking in continuous shooting.
Remarkable 693 focal-plane phase-detection AF pointsThe 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 photosCapture 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.
Reliable subject tracking in motionUninterrupted AF and optimized AF algorithm dramatically enhance AF accuracy and tracking. Even during shutter release, constantly activated AF lets you continue tracking random subject motion.
More AF features for assured shooting
Eye AF for more precise focusingEye detection—enhanced by 30%10 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.
Reliable even in low lightCapture subjects with high AF precision down to light levels as low as EV-311 at ISO 100, due to the high sensitivity image sensor.
A-mount lens AF supportFocal-plane phase-detection AF system with 693 AF points functions reliably. Enjoy up to 10fps continuous shooting12 with AF/AE tracking even when you use A-mount lenses13 with a mount adapter (LA-EA3)14.
Outstanding image quality
Full-frame 24.2-megapixel2 sensor with sensitivity up to ISO 20480015 and wide dynamic range captures outstanding image quality.
New CMOS sensor for imaging excellenceHigh 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.

BIONZ X™ enhanced speed image processorEnhanced image processing combined with new front-end LSI reduces noise while improving detail depiction over a wide sensitivity range. Improved detail rendering enables lifelike texture reproduction.
Uncompressed 14-bit RAWUncompressed 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 movies16
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 3,840 x 2,160 4K output. This oversampling process plus full-frame pixel readout without binning results in the highest possible 4K movie image quality.
Efficient workflow and professional reliability
In addition to a magnesium alloy body that assures the camera’s all-around toughness and reliability, largely amplified versatile features enhance operability, supporting severe usage in professional photography.
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 120fps18 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 stabilization
New body-integrated 5-axis image stabilization unit offers a 5.0-stop19 shutter speed advantage. The live-view monitor image is also stabilized, so you can compose images easily even when shooting a fast-moving subject. (1) Yaw (2) Pitch (3) Roll
Battery stamina for professional use
A newly developed NP-FZ100 battery offers approximately twice10 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.
Dual media slots
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.
My Menu & new menu interface
A new My Menu feature lets you register up to 30 menu items for instant recall, arrange items in any order, and erase unused items. Also, primary menus have been reorganised for smoother search and operation.
