The Sony A9 is a mirrorless full-frame camera that has impressive multimedia capabilities. Using a 24.2 MP CMOS Exmor RS sensor and BIONZ X, A9 GPU capable of 20 fps continuous AF / AE tracking , record UHD 4K video and extend the sensitivity up to ISO 204800. The camera has 693-point AF. a system that covers 93% of the image area to accurately and quickly track the subject in different light conditions. The Sony A9 features 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE stabilization to minimize camera shake when shooting handheld.
Shooting speed in a new dimension
Sony's innovative image sensor makes traditional camera mechanisms redundant, delivering speeds and performance beyond the power of mechanical devices. Moreover, the missing mechanical sound and vibration open up a whole new world of photography opportunities.
The driving force behind an all-electronic revolution
Innovative full-format stacked CMOS sensor with built-in memory
α9 frees you from the limitations of standard SLRs that rely on mechanical systems. The first full-size 24.2-megapixel image sensor, using a high-speed tidy design, stores large amounts of data in internal memory for over 20 times faster read speeds. The combination of a CMOS sensor and the enhanced BIONZ X image processing system gives you true digital freedom.

Catch the elusive so far
High-speed continuous shooting at up to 20 fps5
The revolutionary full-format Exmor RS CMOS sensor and the BIONZ X processor combine for 20 fps continuous AF / AE tracking. Stunning high-speed performance and plenty of buffer to capture the moment.
Shooting without dimming
Non-mechanical shutter eliminates blackouts with standard SLR mirror action. Continuous-view and shutter-release, 60 fps live-view capability, and a minimum continuous display delay.

Silence increases photographic potential
No noise distraction
The electronic anti-distortion shutter lets you shoot silently without the sound of the mechanical mirror and shutter. Ideal for sports and subjects that require quiet operation, greatly enhances the versatility of the camera
No unwanted vibration
In SLR shooting, shaking the mirror and releasing the shutter cause a slight vibration. However, the α9 has a vibration-free electronic shutter that can keep the camera stable for crisp images.
Mobility leads to unprecedented opportunities
Professional performance and performance in a compact body. Freedom of mobility inspires fresh creativity.
Fast, accurate and reliable AF
Discover enhanced AF - more precise, near-constant focus, fast response, fast light, low light reliability and continuous continuous shooting.
4D FOCUS: Stunning wide coverage
693. A remarkable number of phase detection AF points
The phase detection points on the surface of the image sensor - 693 AF points - cover approximately 93% of the image area. High precision performance metrics guarantee your focus on objects.
4D FOCUS: Fast AF speed
Fast hybrid AF achieves fast full-frame AF
Capture fast moving objects with reliable fast AF. The speed and accuracy of this fast hybrid AF system have been further enhanced in combination with the enhanced BIONZ X image processing system.
4D FOCUS: sustainable tracking
Reliable tracking of moving objects
Continuous autofocus and its optimized algorithm greatly improve its accuracy and tracking. Even when the shutter is released, the constantly activated AF allows you to track the movement of any subject.
