Sony's a9 camera takes over as the flagship model for Sony's extensive mirrorless lineup. A truly groundbreaking camera, Sony has packed many of the features that professionals have been clamoring for in their mirrorless setup for years. 24 Megapixels, 20 frames per second, a miniscule 30ms lag time shutter, 693 AF points, and blackout-free shooting makes the a9 the new "leader in the clubhouse" amongst not only mirrorless cameras, but DSLRs as well.
The Sony a9 features the world's first 35mm full-frame stacked CMOS sensor, a feature which allows data speed processing to be 20x faster (per Sony's claims) than previous Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras. The 693 phase detection AF points cover a whopping 93% of the frame, allowing it the ability to capture fast-moving, off-center action. 20FPS burst rate and blackout-free continuous shooting, along with 60 autofocus and autoexposure calculations per second make the Sony a9 a top choice for any serious photographer.
