Sony India has launched A9  digital SLR camera with high-speed, blackout-free continuous shooting at up to 20fps, 60 AF/AE tracking calculations per second, a maximum shutter speed of up to 1/32,000 second. It comes with 35mm full-frame stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor – the world’s first of its kind – which enables data speed processing at up to 20x faster than previous Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras. This unique sensor is paired with a brand new, upgraded BIONZ X processing engine and front-end LSI that maximizes its overall performance.

The A9 is World’s first full-frame stacked CMOS sensor with 24.2 MP resolution with new BIONZ X processor which enables shooting spped of 20 fps with continuous AF/AE tracking for up to 362 JPEG or 241 RAW images. The camera’s advanced AF system is capable to accurately track complex, erratic motion and calculate AF/AE at up to 60 times per seconds regardless of shutter release and frame capture. It has silent and vibration-free shooting capability at speeds up to 1/32,000 sec.

The A9 is equipped with an innovative 5-axis image stabilisation system and with a simple half press of the shutter button, the effect of the image stabilisation can be monitored in the viewfinder or on the LCD screen, allowing framing and focus to be accurately checked and continually monitored.

This camera offers an Ethernet port (wired LAN terminal), that allows the user to conveniently transfer files to a specified FTP server at high speeds. In addition, the external flash units and cables to be connected directly to the camera for convenient flash sync via sync terminal.

On this camera, video content can be created with support of 4K (3840x2160p). It can also record Full HD at 120 fps at up to 100 Mbps, which allows footage to be reviewed and eventually edited into 4x or 5x slow motion video files in Full HD resolution with AF tracking.

This camera also features high-resolution, high-luminance Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder with approximately 3,686k dots that ensures a close-to-reality image reproduction. The new optical designed Tru-Finder is the highest resolution viewfinder ever incorporated by Sony in this camera, which includes a double-sided spherical element, helping it to achieve 0.78x magnification.

Sony has also introduced the new lenses which include the FE 100-400mm F4.5–5.6 GM OSS Super Telephoto Zoom (model SEL100400GM), the FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM large aperture wide-angle zoom lens (model SEL1635GM) and the FE 12-24mm F4 G ultra-wide angle zoom lens (model SEL1224G). Sony’s full-frame E-mount lens line-up now covers from the ultra-wide 12mm to super-telephoto 800mm (with teleconverter) focal length range.
