It seem that Sony delivers not only great sensors for major camera manufacturers like Nikon, but is is also delivering exciting products to its customers. After the success of the α7 full frame mirrorless systems, Sony seems to take a leap and raise the stack launching which promises quite a lot.
Sony lovers here it is!
Seems like the new flagship of Sony was released. Recently they have announced which may be Sony’s new flagship the Sony α9. Everyone knows that Sony is a leading manufacturer when it comes to develop image sensors, but this time they have surpassed themselves. Featuring a newly designed 24.2 Mpx sensor, the new full frame Sony camera has quite impressive specs.
This mechanism-free camera can deliver a-class-above performance conventional mechanical SLRs have only sought. For example, this system realizes a totally blackout-free viewfinder while conventional systems can only try to reduce blackout time. A high-speed, vibration-free, silent Anti-Distortion shutter vastly extends the range of shooting situations while a mechanical system can only aim for lower vibration and quieter shutter release sound. α9 provides continuous tracking of moving subjects for foolproof AF/AE while traditional SLRs can only challenge such AF/AE performance improvements. Moreover, α9 allows its viewfinder to show not only images of the subject — available on conventional systems — but also the final image of a shot. Now, thanks to a new image sensor that superbly manages all these roles, you can surpass all expectation with α9.
Seems like the new Sony α9 will be a real power horse offering:
- a new high speed stacked design 24.2 Mpx sensor
- enhanced Bionz X image-processing engine
- high-speed continuous shooting at up to 20fps
- blackout-free shooting
- AF/AE calculations up to 60 times/sec
- electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32000
- 693 phase-detection AF points
- 5-axis image stabilization
Hence this is only a handful of the overall specs of the new camera, the full spec list is quite long. More information still to come. The camera will be available soon, as specified on Sony’s official website. We don’t have information about the launch date, but the recommended price will be 4,499.99 $.
