This mechanism-free camera can deliver a-class-above performance conventional mechanical SLRs have only sought. For example, this system realises 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.Note: This camera is equipped with electronic and mechanical shutters. The features described in this section are primarily related to electronic shutter operation.
Innovative full-frame stacked CMOS sensor with integral memory
α9 liberates you from the limits of conventional SLRs that rely on mechanical systems. First1 to use high-speed stacked design, its 24.2-megapixel2 full-frame image sensor temporarily stores large-volume data in the integral memory for overall 20 times faster readout speed3. The combination of CMOS sensor and enhanced BIONZ X image-processing engine brings you true digital freedom.

Capture the previously uncatchable
Track the action with an uninterrupted view
Light directly reaches the image sensor without mechanical interruption. An ingenious fusion of mirrorless construction and new speed-enhancing technologies provides AF/AE at the full-frame focal plane.(1) AF/AE calculations (2) 60times/sec (3) 20 frames/sec
Electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32000 sec.7 far surpass mechanical shutters for a new imaging expression. You can also maintain shallow depth of field without an ND filter, even under bright conditions.(A mode 1/20000 sec. F8.0 ISO 1000)
Silence expands photographic potential
693. Remarkable number of phase-detection AF pointsThe phase-detection points on the surface of an image sensor — 693 AF points — covers approximately 93% of the image area. High-precision performance assures your focus on subjects.
Fast Hybrid AF achieves rapid AF for full-frame photosCapture fast-moving subjects with reliable rapid AF. The speed and accuracy of this Fast Hybrid AF System are further improved in combination with the enhanced BIONZ X image processing engine.
Reliable subject tracking in motionUninterrupted AF and optimised AF algorithm dramatically enhance AF accuracy and tracking. Even during shutter release, constantly activated AF lets you continue tracking random subject motion.

Uncompressed 14-bit RAW format is supported, and it or the current compressed RAW format can be selected as required. Uncompressed 14-bit RAW is a good choice in situations where the sensor's wide dynamic range and fine gradation reproduction will benefit the images being captured.
