Be ready for any history-making moment. The Sony Alpha a9 Mark II captures split-second action thanks to 20 fps continuous shooting (10 fps with mechanical shutter) and a generous buffer. The electronic shutter can shoot blackout-free, keeping your subject visible during shutter. It also allows you to shoot in perfect silence, without risk of disturbing the scene.
Exceptional Images in All Situations
The Sony a9 II’s 24.2MP stacked back-illuminated CMOS sensor is one of the most highly advanced image sensors to date. Designed to store data in integral memory, it achieves ultra-fast readout speeds and outstanding low-light sensitivity, up to ISO 51200. Together with an upgraded BIONZ X processing engine, this produces exceptional image quality in all kinds of situations, with natural skin tones and smooth gradations. RAW files are recordable in 14-bit for greater colour fidelity and post-production flexibility
With in-body 5-axis optical image stabilisation, the Sony a9 II provides a remarkable 5.5-stop shutter speed advantage. This greatly reduces camera shake in stills and video, even when you’re shooting handheld.
4D FOCUS, Real-time Tracking & Eye AF
With the Sony a9 II’s Fast Hybrid autofocus (AF) system, it’s possible to perfect even the most challenging shots. 693 phase-detection and 425 contrast-detection AF points focus and track moving subjects with outstanding speed and accuracy, even in dim lighting, during shutter release and when obstacles appear in the frame.
AI-powered Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF make sharp portraits and wildlife shots drastically easier to perfect. Simply specify your subject—be it human or animal—and the camera will keep it in focus while you half press the shutter.
OLED Viewfinder & Tilting Touchscreen
With 3.7 million dot resolution and 120 fps frame rate, the Quad-VGA OLED electronic viewfinder provides a smooth, highly detailed display with minimal motion blur. This ensures you can view every scene with lifelike clarity. As well as enabling intuitive image playback and settings adjustment, the LCD touchscreen tilts 107° up and 41° down for flexible monitoring and composition.
4K Video with Full Pixel Readout
Capture brilliant 4K footage that’s sure to exceed expectations. Full pixel readout with no pixel binning outputs 4K video using the data required for 6K, resulting in stunningly rich detail. Fast Hybrid AF, Real-time Tracking/Eye AF, and Touch Tracking are all accessible during 4K recording, ensuring crisp focus throughout your footage.
Featuring a digital audio interface, the camera’s Multi Interface Shoe (MI Shoe) allows you to capture optimal quality sound with minimal deterioration. Take advantage of this using the ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone (sold separately).
Next-Level Durability & Usability
Multiple upgrades to the original a9’s design take the Sony a9 II’s durability and usability to another level. Incorporating lightweight yet highly durable magnesium alloy, the Sony a9 II boasts enhanced and more extensive dust/moisture sealing, ensuring reliability wherever your work takes you. The redesigned grip offers a firmer hold when balancing telephoto lenses, and the dials and controls offer greater comfort, tactility and responsiveness.
Made to Streamline Professional Workflows
The Sony a9 II will transform your workflow. Swiftly, smoothly, reliably and securely transfer large files to a designated FTP server via LAN terminal supporting 1000BASE-T. Need to deliver RAW and/or JPEG files fast? The a9 II supports FTP data transfers both during and after shooting. 5GHz-band Wi-Fi (included along with 2.4GHz-band) enables extra high-speed data transfer wirelessly.
A new Voice Memo function lets you attach audio recordings to your image files – handy for noting subject details or shooting conditions. Meanwhile, remote shooting via desktop app allows you to shoot in ways that you otherwise couldn’t, like from hard-to-reach vantage points.
