Sony's new A9 camera with full-frame stacked CMOS sensor

20.04.2017

Sony A9 ILCE-9 Alpha photo Sony introduced a new, revolutionary digital camera, the A9 (model ILCE-9). The most technologically advanced, innovative digital camera that Sony has ever created, the new A9 offers high-speed, blackout-free continuous shooting at up to 20 fps, 60 AF/AE tracking calculations per second, a maximum shutter speed of up to 1/32,000 second and much more. These features are made possible thanks to its new 35mm full-frame stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor -- the world's first of its kind -- which enables data speed processing at up to 20x faster than previous Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras. This unique sensor is paired with a brand new, upgraded BIONZ X processing engine and front-end LSI that maximises overall performance. The new A9 also features a vibration free, fully electronic, completely silent anti-distortion shutter, a new Z battery (NP-FZ100) with approximately 2.2x the capacity of W batteries, dual SD media card slots (one with UHS-II support), an Ethernet port, new Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder with approximately 3,686k dots, a 5-axis image stabilisation system, uncompressed 14-bit RAW support, and 4K video recording across the full width of the full-frame image sensor. Additionally, the camera can record Full HD at 120 fps at up to 100 Mbps. The new A9 will start shipping from May 2017 (U.S.A.) to June 2017 (Europe) priced at approximately 4,500 USD / 5,300 EUR / 4,500 GBP. [source]
