The Sony α9 mirrorless camera delivers next-level precision with its 24.2-megapixel 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor and Bionz X image processor. Delivering unrivalled high-speed continuous shooting up to 20fps with AF/AE tracking, this camera also features 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE stabilisation ensuring steady shots. Record high-quality 4K video and playback on the tilting 3-inch touchscreen display.

24.2MP Full-Frame Stacked CMOS Sensor

With its 24.2 megapixel full-frame stacked CMOS sensor, the Sony α9 delivers exceptional speed and clarity, with the ability to store large amounts of data. A high sensitivity ISO expandable to ISO 204,800 has noise reduction for clean image quality in a variety of lighting conditions. RAW files can be recorded in 14-bit for greater colour fidelity and post-production flexibility.

Bionz X Image Processor

The impressive Bionz X image processor lends to quick processing speeds for fast-paced shooting so you’ll never miss a beat. You can freeze fast-moving objects, whether it’s a racing car, a bird in flight or a high-action sporting moment. Speed and performance at its best, this processor is free from mechanical noise and vibration.


693-Point AF system & 20 fps shooting  

Shooting an unrivalled 20 frames per second with AF/AE tracking ensures you will never miss that perfect shot, even in fast-action moments. The 693-point AF system has incredible phase detection covering a generous area of the image to deliver exceptional precision when focusing on your subjects. And you’ll be able to shoot in a variety of lighting conditions with sensitivity down to -3 EV.


High-density tracking AF technology

High-density tracking AF technology ensures you can maintain focus on moving subjects, no matter the lighting conditions. So that speeding racecar or kayak going down the rapids will still be in precise detail. Whether it’s in broad daylight or artificial settings, you’ll be able to capture quick action shots that will make the viewer feel like they’re in the moment.


Blackout-free photography

Decked out with a Quad-VGA 3.7m-Dot OLED EVF, the Sony α9 offers blackout-free shooting for accuracy with capturing moving subjects. This means the viewfinder has an uninterrupted view of the object you’re shooting even during the shutter release, delivering 60 frames per second in live-view.


Internal UHD 4K video recording

Record exceptional videos with internal UHD 4K video at multiple frame rates up to 30 frames per second. When you’re in the moment, you can capture a scene as a video and later capture a screen grab to produce 8MP stills during playback. That absolutely ensures you won’t miss out on a unique moment.


5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE stabilisation

The 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE stabilisation cuts out camera shake, even when you’re shooting handheld. That works both for stills and video, even when you’re shooting from a distance. You can be confident to use any lens without countering blur from camera shake.

3.0" 1.44m-dot tilting LCD touchscreen  

The 3 inch 1.44m-dot tilting LCD touchscreen makes it easy to view your stills and playback video. Easily take a look at your shots in live view and navigate the menu with the touch of your finger. You can also intuitively autofocus on an exact spot with the touch focus functionality.
