The Sony Alpha A9 mirrorless camera is perfect for capturing fast-moving action and wildlife and is aimed at advanced to professional photographers. Featuring a 24.2-megapixel Exmor full-frame stacked CMOS sensor, up to 20fps continuous shooting, 4K-video recording and in-body 5-axis image stabilisation, the A9 is specifically designed to compete with DSLR flagship cameras in terms of performance and handling. Whether you’re interested in shooting fast-moving subjects, documentary photography, portrait photography, travel photography or wildlife photography, the A9 is one of the best mirrorless cameras to consider. With its tough magnesium-alloy frame and weather-resistant design, this is a camera that photographers can use with confidence in a variety of environments and conditions.

Using Sony’s powerful Bionz X image processing engine, with intelligent area-specific noise reduction, back-illuminated (BSI) sensor construction and native ISO sensitivity range of ISO 100-52100 (expandable to 204800), the A9 can produce clean results even in challenging lighting conditions.

The A9 features a 693-point hybrid autofocus system, covering 93% of the frame, for quick and accurate AF tracking results, as well as improved Eye AF. Similar to using the optical viewfinder of a DSLR, there’s no blackout when using the camera’s impressive 20fps electronic shutter, making it easier for photographers to keep up with subjects. Recording to dual SD slots, the A9’s autofocus system calculates AF/AE 60 times per second making it one of the best cameras for photographing fast and erratically-moving subjects. An additional benefit of this camera’s e-shutter is that it has been designed to combat distortion typically associated with electronic shutters. This system is capable of focusing in low-visibility conditions as dim as EV-3, equivalent to moonlight. The A9 also features a completely silent electronic shutter mode, enabling photographers to continue shooting without causing a distraction during sensitive occasions such as concert recitals, golf tournaments and wedding ceremonies for example.

The A9’s 3-inch 1.440k-dot tilting touchscreen LCD offers a crisp display for composing images, tactile control and touch AF. However, the A9 also has a high-resolution 3.68-million dot Quad-VGA OLED viewfinder, which is great for composing images in bright lighting conditions. The A9 uses the latest Sony Alpha menu system, which offers a high level of personalisation, including the ability to recall custom settings at the touch of a function button.

Suitable for photographers looking for a professional-level camera that offers cutting-edge technology for tracking and photographing action, the A9 offers superior performance, full manual control and customisable DSLR-like handling.
