Sony has lately introduced a brand-new full-frame mirrorless digital camera,with the
world’s 1st full-frame stacked backside illuminated,24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor.
The Sony Alpha 9 houses a new technology Bionz X processor and offers the efficiency of
shooting at up to TWENTY frames per second with no blackout. We had a limited hands-on shooting
period with the new camera and were really pleased by its speed and capability to focus
rapidly- we were able to capture and freeze out action with quite little work and the results
we got were excellent. We found that having no blackout in the view finder while shooting was
truly helpful, and suggested that we did not miss even a second of the actions.
Sony looks like to have positioned quite a lot of emphasis on the focusing abilities of the
model A9. There is a multi-selector joystick on the back of the camera,helping to make it much easier,to easily
switch focus within the frame by pressing it up, down, left or right when shooting
in Zone, Flexible Spot or Expanded Flexible Spot focus area modes; while touch focusing
on the rear LCD screen allows selection of a appropriate focus position.
The ISO variety on offer is 100-51200, which is expandable to 50-204800. We experimented with the
camera in a controlled lighting style conditions,so it will be exciting to analyze it in low and
changeable light to uncover out how it copes.
The Sony A9 contains independent drive mode and focus mode dials – a first for Sony E-mount
cameras – and an AF-ON button that can be pressed to switch on auto-focus when capturing
still photos or videos. In hand, the camera felt very user-friendly and the control keys and dials were
well laid out.
The Sony Alpha 9 will be on the market from June 2017,priced at around 5.700 USD.
