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.

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

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.

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.
