Sony Alpha a9 is the top of the line mirrorless camera in Sony’s lineup, which rests well above all of the popular Alpha a7 series devices. And in this “most technologically advanced” digital camera, Sony has packed plenty of interesting features.
This flagship mirrorless shooter features a blackout-free viewfinder that allows for continuous shooting at up to 20fps. It further offers 60 AF/AE tracking calculations per second as well. On the photography front, the camera does really well with the full stacked 24MP full frame Sony Exmor RS sensor. The device also has an impressive ISo range of 100-51200, which can be expanded up to 50-204800. But what’s really commendable here is the feature to capture vibration-free shooting at speeds up to 1/32,000 sec with a fully electronic and silent shutter, backed by a 5-axis image stabilization system. And the capability to capture images at burst mode at 20 fps speed is equally impressive here.
Talking about the viewfinder, the Quad-VGA Tru-Finder viewfinder packs around 3690k dots, which is the highest resolution of viewfinder Sony has ever packed in its cameras. The Alpha a9 can also record 4K Ultra-HD movies, using full pixel readout without pixel binning to collect 6K of information. It means that the Sony Alpha a9 oversamples the image ensuring super-high quality footages. Although the device can only shoot 4K videos at 30fps at max, one can always scale the resolution down to Full-HD (1080p) if they require 120fps frame rate. And for the easier file transfer, the device has an Ethernet port along with the slots for two SD cards.
