Sony Alpha A9 Body

Sony a9 Full-frame Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera

The most technologically advanced, innovative digital camera that Sony has ever created, the new a9 offers a level of imaging performance that is simply unmatched by any camera ever created - mirrorless, SLR or otherwise.



Full-frame stacked CMOS sensor with integral memory

a9 is the mirrorless camera that delivers next-generation high-speed performance far exceeding SLRs. It's equipped with the world's first 35 mm stacked CMOS image sensor with integral memory for 20 times faster overall readout speed. This 24.2 MP image sensor achieves high sensitivity of up to ISO 204800 (extended) with the design of back-illuminated structure.

Full-frame stacked CMOS sensor

High-speed BIONZ X image processing engine

High-speed BIONZ X

Achieving processing speed beyond the previous model, BIONZ X image processing engine is optimized for speed to reliably capture fast-moving subjects and realize continuous shooting of up to 20fps. Due to the newly developed image-processing algorithm, you can capture high-quality images with less noise all across the sensitivity range while maintaining natural details.

20fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking

A combination of groundbreaking high-speed full-frame Exmor RS CMOS sensor and high-speed BIONZ X processor enables 20fps continuous shooting without a break for as many as 362 shots. Thanks to the capability of displaying subjects nearly as naturally as they appear in reality, EVF lets you "sync" your intentions with camera behaviour.

20fps continuous shooting

Fast shutter release at 1/32,000 sec., achieved silently

Fast shutter release at 1/32,000 sec

Explore the advantages of a high-speed silent shutter that is fully digital - without a physical mechanism. A result of Sony's image sensor innovation, this shutter achieves speeds up to 1/32,000 sec., beyond the limits of mechanical systems. High curtain speed of the electronic shutter suppresses rolling shutter effect and shows excellent performance in capturing moving subjects during sports and other fast-moving activities.

AF/AE calculations up to 60 times/sec.

AF/AE is calculated up to 60 times per second and virtually uninterrupted not only while composing but also even releasing the shutter. You can depend on this continuous AF/AE - operated on the image sensor - to lock onto and track erratically moving subjects with significantly high speed, precision, and reliability.

Blackout-free shooting

Blackout-free shooting

Thanks to the non-mechanical electronic shutter system, you can observe the reality of what you're shooting through the electronic viewfinder even during continuous shooting, without blackout interruption that typically occurs among optical viewfinders due to up-and-down mirror motion. Enhanced speed of the image sensor eliminates distracting EVF display lag in continuous shooting, so that you can compose images with natural comfort, like seeing scenes with your own eyes. (A) Blackout-free shooting (B) Shooting with blackout

Precision AF effective down to EV-331 brightness

Shoot crisp 4K/30fps video and 1080p/100fps for slow motion video, with enhanced sound capture through the included FlexiMic or capture 12 megapixel stills in Adobe DNG RAW for more editing freedom.

Precision AF effective

693-point focal-plane phase-detection AF

693-point focal-plane

a9 brings you 693 phase-detection AF points in a high-density focal-plane AF system, providing distinctively wide and dense AF point coverage over approximately 93% of the image area. This enables more accurate, efficient, and reliable focus on subjects throughout the frame.

Enhanced Eye AF

Eye AF can capture intriguing facial expressions with enhanced accuracy through 30% improved precision of eye detection. This enhanced feature automatically focuses on and even tracks focus on a subject's eye as the face moves or turns to a 3/4 view, extending your freedom to frame a great shot.

Enhanced Eye AF

AF/AE-tracking continuous shooting with A-mount lenses

AF/AE-tracking continuous shooting

The body's 693-point focal-plane phase-detection AF provides wide-area coverage, fast response, and high tracking performance, not only for E-mount but also for A-mount lenses with use of a mount adaptor (LA-EA3). Continuous shooting of up to 10fps with AF tracking is possible.

Body-integrated 5-axis image stabilization

The body-integrated image stabilization system is fine-tuned to compensate accurately for 5-axis camera shake that can compromise handheld shooting. This gives you extremely high performance in both stills and movies, whether you're shooting at longer focal lengths, in close-ups, or at night. Camera shake compensation is equivalent to using a 5.0-stop37 faster shutter speed, allowing stable determination of composition at times of capturing subjects in high-speed motion. Real-time effects can be monitored via live view. (1) Yaw (2) Pitch (3) Roll

Body-integrated 5-axis image stabilization

High-resolution Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder

High-resolution Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder

See your subject with a bright image for natural, seamless shooting. Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder has approx. 3686k-dot high resolution with 0.78x finder magnification, corner-to-corner clarity, and ZEISS T* Coating to reduce reflections. Display mode at high 120fps refresh rates provides a smooth image with minimal display blur when shooting moving subjects. Fluorine coating is applied on the outmost lens for improved protection from dirt.

Dual slots for convenient data management

Two media slots are provided for you: one for SD cards and one for SD/Memory Stick cards. Lower card slot supporting UHS-II type cards is available for fast transfer speed. Still or movie data can be simultaneously recorded to both cards for backup, or RAW/JPEG images or stills/movies can be recorded to different cards. Data can also be copied between cards.

Dual slots for convenient data management

3.0-type 1,440k-dot LCD screen

3.0-type 1,440k-dot LCD screen

Take charge of a9 performance with this 3.0-type LCD touch screen, featuring 1,440k dots for enhanced resolution and detailed viewing. Convenient Touch Focus feature also allows you to freely choose an area of focus by simply touching on the LCD screen. The screen tilts as much as 107 degrees upwards and 41 degrees downwards for flexible hold and framing.

FTP transfer via LAN terminal on the camera body

Using a new terminal for wired LAN connection, you can conveniently transfer still image files to a specified FTP server for viewing and management as needed. A wired LAN connection gives you the highest possible transfer speeds for large image files—an ideal solution for studio photography. Moreover, since FTPS (File Transfer Protocol over SSL/TLS) is supported, image files can be encrypted with SSL or TLS while being transferred, assuring a higher level of security.

FTP transfer via LAN terminal on the camera body

High-resolution 4K movie recording

High-resolution 4K movie recording

Capture outstanding high-quality 4K movies with this latest full-frame camera. Full-pixel readout without pixel binning for high-resolution 4K movies makes it possible to deliver detail-rich full-frame movies via the oversampling effect achieved by condensing approximately 2.4 times the amount of data required for 4K (6K equivalent) for 4K output (QFHD: 3,840 x 2,160). Furthermore, the high speed of the newly developed image sensor reduces the rolling shutter effect.

Tough magnesium alloy body

a9 body is built for solid reliability, steady handling, and durability in the field. Its internal structure and top, front, and rear covers are all made of strong, rigid magnesium alloy. Body strength and rigidity and robust lens mount give you a solid foundation for lens mounting and rugged use, even with large, heavy telephoto and movie lenses

Tough magnesium alloy body

Improved Fast Hybrid AF for movie shooting

Improved Fast Hybrid AF for movie shooting

Keep images sharp and clear in shooting 4K movies. Fast Hybrid AF for movie recording has evolved and its AF area has been extended to nearly the same width as that for stills, enabling high-speed high-precision AF throughout the frame. Also, further reduction of speed at the "low" end of AF speed enables more pronounced slow focus effects.

Reliable dust- and moisture-resistant design

Enjoy carefree shooting in tough environments, with comprehensive dust- and moisture-resistance measures that help guard against moisture and dust. Protection includes sealing around buttons, dials, media jack cover, and enclosure edges featuring tongue-and-groove joints for double shielding to tightly interlock panels and component

Reliable dust- and moisture-resistant design

Support for uncompressed 14-bit RAW format

For RAW recording, 14-bit RAW output and 16-bit image processing help preserve maximum detail and produce images of the highest quality with rich tonal gradations. The 14-bit RAW (Sony ARW) format ensures optimal quality for later image adjustment (via Image Data Converter or other software).

XAVC S for high-bitrate recording

XAVC S format is used for 4K and HD recording. High bitrates of up to 100 Mbps for 4K 30p (25p)/24p recording, and up to 50 Mbps for full-HD 60p (50p)/30p (25p)/24p recording, ensure beautifully detailed movies with minimal compression noise. Since 100 Mbps recording is possible even at the highest 120fps in full-HD, high-quality slow-motion sequences can be created during post processing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect. My first impressions with a Sony a9 after using for 6 months while in transition from another professional camera outfitter. General. 1. Two SD card slots; a fast one in slot 1 and a slow in 2; both should have been the same. 2. No USB 3 3. Advertised as 20 f/s but this only if using compressed files. Using uncompressed files drops to 12f/s. 4. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth available but connectivity with Samsung or iPhone unreliable; stop using it. 5. Complex Menu requiring long learning curve and poor descriptive manual. 6. This may be only me but when using polarizers, the effect is hard to see in the Electronic Finder. Poor Ergonomics. 1. If coming from a top professional grade camera, a grip is a must since the body is too small and this still will not overcome various issues (see below). 2. The advantages of getting a smaller and lighter camera are not there. The a9 with a grip weights just a pound less when compared with top professional grade cameras that have the grip built-in. 3. EV Compensation Wheel too small and very hard to turn. Advantages. 1. Outstanding AF that covers 90% of the finder lighting fast; equal or better than my top of the line professional digital mirror camera. 2. Amazing image quality. 3. Silent shooting 4. Histogram in the viewfinder...what you see is what you get; no chiming. 5. All buttons and wheel can be customized to the user's needs. Other Issues. A. The Grip when used in the portrait position: 1. Only # 1 and 2 programmable buttons are included; # 4 can is reachable but #3 is not. 2. No EV compensation wheel. The Grip when used in the landscape position: 1. The portrait shutter button accidentally activated when shooting landscape so one has to turn off the grip. It will be nice if when in landscape use, grip shutter portrait button would be automatically disengage. B. There is gap seen between the body and the grip; not a big issue but never seen this with other cameras. For the Sony a9 to become top choice for professional users, the ergonomics will have to improve with larger buttons (illuminated ones will be great) and a bigger body with a built-in grip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use I love this camera cause it was just so easy to adjust to it. I was able to do everything quickly. The quality of the pics are amazing. Skin tone is the only thing that might need some improvement in comparison to Nikon and Canon but overall the cam is just off the charts

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Total Game Changer As a sports photographer I was extremely hesitant to make the move away from Nikon, but after 2 weeks with the Sony A9, I'm sold! Paired with the Sony GM 70-200 f/2.8, it's a total game changer for sports photography with the ability to comfortably shoot 10,000 ISO, tilt screen LCD, 20fps and a nearly silent shutter. Shooting state championships this past weekend, I was surrounded by Nikon and Canon shooters and was the only Sony there, but had lots of people asking me about it! On Saturday I shot intermittently for 12 hrs for a total of 2168 images, no grip and still had 18% battery life left on my FIRST battery at the end of the night!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera, but needs A7RIII menus and profiles I was an early adopter of this camera. Coming from an A7RII, I really appreciate the evolution path, and the speed with which Sony is innovating. The A7RII produces amazing results but has operating quirks which we all know. Sony did a great job making the A9 much more usable. I didn't need the amazing high frame rate of this camera but the battery size, dual cards, extremely fast AF and new menu system were worth the price foe me. Mostly I needed a full frame camera with 24mp resolution, not 42mp. My clients need lots of images, but not lots of resolution. I can work faster with the A9. The menu system on this camera is a big improvement over previous Alpha cameras but it has evolved even further in many small but significant areas with the A7RIII. Sony, can you please update the A9 menus to match the A7RIII via a firmware update? Not only will this improve the A9 but it will make working with both cameras side by side, as I do, much easier. The A7RIII (and all other recent Alpha 7 cameras) also has S-Log and other video profiles. It is so disappointing that the A9 does not have these. Please, please give us back these profiles on the A9. This is Sony's most expensive camera, but actually lacks quite a bit when compared to the new A7RIII. At this point, if you are o.k with "a mere" 10fps and 42mp resolution, I would strongly suggest saving some money for lenses and go with the A7RIII, it's a better all round camera, and significantly cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the best I just love the product but I have some comments I would like to know why slow motion and fast motion are only in HD? and not in 4k, also there is not time lapse option. The images are very sharp, the AF is great, the buffer yes is slow but nothing to be disappointed, the battery is great I really think is a great great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is ALMOST the perfect camera! I absolutely LOVE this camera. This is my first Sony camera. I have previously shot with Nikon and Canon (Nikon D600 + D750 as well as the Canon 5d Mark IV and III) and I love that this camera essentially combines both the ergonomics of the 2 brands, as well as makes it into a small form factor with more technology! I just love how this feels in my hands, especially with the battery grip extender as even though I have small hands, my pinky does feel more comfortable with the extender. And I love the inclusion of the joystick, the raised control pad, and the slightly edged out dial on the back that makes it easier to achieve (unlike that of the a7rii). I have tried the a7rii and sony a6500 and it just does not compare to the Sony a9 in terms of feel. Plus the extended battery life and the dual card slot? This is a pro camera for sure. I was really bothered by the battery life of the A7rii. In addition, this sony a9 has a lot faster of a Processor, so navigating thru it is quick and snappy. The ONLY thing that I wish this camera had (and I'm hoping so much for this in a firmware update) is S-LOG. Sony's earlier cameras, and point and shoots ,have this feature but it's hard for me to believe that this Sony a9 does not have it, especially at this price point. As someone mentioned before, the Sony A7sii and A7rii bought together (used) is equal to the price of this a9. But I did not want to get the other two because I have shot with the a7rii and the form factor was just not there for me (as mentioned above). Sony please please please get S-Log on this camera! You will definitely get a lot more convertors forking over the money; especially because it'll have the best of both worlds. I know the Canon 5d Mark IV had C-Log added in later, and I'm hoping this is the case with the A9.
