A9 Sony Full Frame Mirrorless Camera: The Future In Photography

Sony’s new flagship interchangeable non-reflective lens camera uses the developed Exmor RS (35mm) full-frame CMOS sensor. Which uses the “stacking” technology introduced by the Cyber-shot RX100 IV and RX10 II cameras. Sony claims a full frame. The first product of the sensor. Organized with current Bionz X picture processor, the A9 gives and do we have never had in DSLR and SLR cameras.

A9 is as important as engineering and end users. When starting the camera, Sony announced it considered the client’s preferences and desires. Here, a pro sports photographer, the target buyer of this $4,057.02 camera (body only). A fast camera that helps, not hinders, has a camera that complements the photographer’s workflow capabilities. The voice of the creator “is vital to our product development.

In actual use, is the A9 compared to the digital SLR camera used by the photographer? The same and superior in other respects. A9 fires at fast-moving athletes in various sporting events. The design A9 the ultimate sports camera. With its feat of 20 frames per second (fps) and continuous autofocus, a huge achievement.

A great “stacked” sensor and autofocus

The A9 features the world’s first “stacked” back-lit full-frame sensor. Stacked sensor technology is not new. Sony introduced a 1-inch variant when it introduced the Cyber-shot RX10 II and RX100IV. Despite resolving the A7R II full-frame sensor up to 42.4 megapixels. The technology stack allows the sensor to achieve a 42-megapixels A9 speed of 20 times over 24.3 megapixels. With faster overall reading without cascading. The sensor is in the A7 II. It provides an extended ISO range of 50 to 204,800 for the A9.

With the new Bionz X image processor, the sensor can shoot 20 fps RAW format. It takes up to 362 photos and then slowing. In contrast, the Canon 1D-X Mark II can handle up to 14 fps. The Nikon D5 can reach 12 fps, and the A7R II can only collect 5 fps. But to achieve this, you need to use the SDXC UHS-II card to maximize speed and write speed. The sensor allows an electronic shutter speed 1 / 32,000 seconds, a fast shutter speed helps cut the rolling shutter effect.


Helping to take sharp pictures a new autofocus method with 693 phase-detection AF points and 25 contrast-detection points. It locates the PD point in the sensor, covering 93% of the frame, far exceeding 399 points of A7R II. The wider the coverage, the more tasks will focus. Thanks to the sensor/processor combination, A9’s autofocus, and auto-exposure systems count up to 60 times per second.

Every camera company is speeding up, and most new models are fast, but the A9 is a different beast. The camera is great as the connected lens. Sony has increased its full-frame E-frame series, set up a new 100-400mm G Master lens, and A9. The A9 has good a right choice, but Sony’s full-frame lens choice still comparable to Canon or Nikon.

But, you can autofocus A-frame glass and the selected Canon lens through the adapter. Sony does not promote the latter (A7R II has this feature), this may entice Canon’s digital SLR camera owners. Similar to other new Alpha cameras, it equips the A9 a five-axis image stabilization method that stabilizes any lens.

Professional-centered design and functionality

The A9 confuses with the full-frame brothers in the A7 series. In fact, the A9 is only larger and heavier than the A7R II. It measures 5 x 3.8 x 2.5 inches and weighs 1.5 pounds (in the body only). The improvement is greater grip, something the photographer prefers and has more battery space. This sealed body is resistant to inclement weather. It makes dust and moisture of magnesium alloy to make the body durable and lightweight.

A9 has two new layer dials in the upper left corner, one for selecting the drive method. (simple, continuous high, medium, low speed, timer, and bracketing). The other for selecting the drive under the disc focus method. (simple autofocus, continuous autofocus, etc.). This dial allows the photographer to access these limits without having to navigate through the on-screen menus. When the view cannot cut from the viewer in the middle of a crucial session. The rest of the controls familiar, including the joystick on the back. On most digital SLR cameras, but this the first Sony to have no mirror alignment.

An explosion is 20 fps, and it does not dim the viewfinder, the A9 Sony Camera is the ultimate motion camera.

On that audience: If the stacked sensors are the coolest components of the A9. Then it does not dim the electronic viewfinder. With the DSLR continuous shooting technique, you can see a black screen during quick shooting. They call this a dimming viewfinder that occurs when the mirror turned up to allow light to touch the sensor. This phenomenon does not affect the A9’s EVF, just watching a video.

The Future In Photography

Sony said due to mechanical components. The power failure of the viewfinder is a symptom of the limitations of the DSLR and difficult to overcome. The A9’s EVF shows how far the camera without a mirror is; no longer thinks a mirrorless camera is slower than a digital SLR.

The resolve of the EVF is a bright OLED of 3,686 KP. For the live view, the A9’s three-inch LCD is an improvement to the A7 series. It has a tactile sensation brighter at 1,440k and tilt up and drop to the upper and lower frames.

The A9 compact as the A7, but Sony tries to adapt as much as possible to performance and DSLR capabilities. (its engineers are a great fit for this feat). It has two slots for SD cards, one of which supports the fastest UHS-II. The convenience of simultaneous recording allows redundancy/backup or recording of RAW and JPEG files on a separate card. Enough, the slot is compatible with the Memory Stick format; it never noticed for a long time. When asked why Sony does not use the XQD format? The company said XQD requires a larger camera body and more suitable for video.

Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth (location, date, and time stamp when the user associates a mobile phone) are standard. But the camera has an Ethernet port for wired connections. This not only allows fast transfer to computers in the learning environment. It allows photographers to upload to a secure FTP server. There is a sink terminal for external flash.

Professional photographers and enthusiasts customizable buttons. A9 has them, but it has a menu scheme that allows users to adjust menus according to their workflow. Sony said it can assign 72 functions to these buttons.

The Future In Photography

The new battery capacity used in A9 is twice that old battery used in Sony digital SLR cameras, mirrorless models. For example, the A7R II has a capacity of 290, while the A99 Mark II has a rate of 390. A9 can take up to 480 photos. In contrast, the Nikon D5 battery has a capacity of 3,780. Sony offers an optional battery handle that supports two batteries but still won’t go beyond high-end digital SLR cameras.

We can’t imagine a wedding photographer disappointed with the color and smooth movement that the A9 offers. A9 is an impressive example of direct camera technology.


The first full-frame stacked CMOS sensor; data processing speed increased by 20 times. The first continuous shooting viewer does not darken the world. The Tru-Finder OLED has 100% frame coverage. Get continuous shooting up to 20 fps, a full resolution of 24.2MP 693 focal plane phase detection AF point. Within 93% of the wide coverage. The 5-axis body image is stable with a 5.0 step shutter speed gain.

The telephoto lens combines exceptional sharpness with a soft linear double bokeh. Direct drive SSM provides a fast, quiet, and correct method. The optical stability of captured images reduces blurring; resistance to dust and moisture, and higher reliability. The least focus distance is 3.22′ / 0.35x. magazine. Used in the versatile aspherical lens section to reduce spherical aberration.
