Robust magnesium alloy body w/ dust and moisture resistant design12

The α9 body construction features a lightweight, high-rigidity magnesium alloy for the internal frame as well as the top, front, and rear covers. The grip area has also been reinforced with an integrated magnesium alloy grip and front cover. Although about the same size and weight as the α7 series, the α9 body is packed with unprecedented functionality and performance. The number of screws securing the lens mount has been increased to six in order to maximize rigidity and durability even when using heavy telephoto lenses. Sealing is provided throughout the body to minimize dust and moisture ingress, allowing it to function reliably in challenging environments12. All major buttons and dials are provided with seals, while media jack cover and enclosure edges feature tongue-and-groove joints for double protection. Maximum dust and moisture resistance is maintained at lens, vertical grip, and flash unit joints too, providing excellent system reliability.

World’s first1 Full-frame stacked CMOS sensor

From the world’s largest sensor manufacturer comes the world’s first1 35mm full-frame stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor with integrated memory and includes a number of features that contribute to outstanding image quality. High sensitivity, a back-illuminated configuration, gapless on-chip lens architecture, and other Sony innovations deliver stunning images in a wide range of photographic situations. This unique 24.2 megapixel sensor, when combined with the refined BIONZ X image processing engine and front-end LSI, delivers approx. 20x faster data readout speed Sony full-frame mirrorless α7 II cameras. The result is unmatched by any DSLR or Mirrorless camera before it.

Ethernet port for FTP file transfer

In addition to wireless LAN capability, a new Ethernet terminal for wired LAN connection allows convenient transfer of high-volume still image files to a specified FTP server where they can be viewed and managed via a local computer. A wired LAN connection provides high stability and transfer speeds for large image files, and is an ideal solution for situations where large amounts of data must be transferred quickly and reliably as in studio photography, high-profile news, sporting events and more.


Full-frame 4K11 video10 w/ full-pixel readout and no pixel binning

The new α9 is very capable as a video camera as well, as it offers 4K11 (3840x2160p) video10 recording across the full width of the full-frame image sensor. When shooting in this format, the camera uses full pixel readout without pixel binning to collect 6K of information, oversampling it to produce high quality 4K footage with exceptional detail and depth. Recording is also available in the popular Super35 size. Additionally, the camera can record Full HD11 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.
