The new Sony A9 is going to be a game changer in my opinion in the camera industry as manufacturers like Nikon and Canon fail to regularly adapt and update their cameras with newer, improved technology. Whilst I have never shot on a Sony body, these specs alone would make any photographer consider jumping ship to Sony.
The 693 Af points allow for pin sharp focus and Sonys focusing system is rated extremely highly. Alongside this, the in-body stabilisation allows for smooth video and slower shutter speeds but also the use of lenses with no IS. Whilst many people have seen the problem with the A line up to be the battery life, Sony has said to have of increased battery performance in the new A9 by 2.2x. And finally, at 20fps, the A9 is crazy fast. Put that with the no blackout and constant AF, this camera is going to pop for photographers that shoot a lot of action.
I think the A9 is a huge step for Sony as they have crushed the market with their cameras that push camera technology to the limit. This blazingly fast camera allows photographers to push the limits of their creativity and it is crazy to see how technology in photography adapts and changes. This camera almost seems too good to be true and is a huge step forwards for Sony.
- Release Date and Price -
The Sony A9 has been said to be released in May for around £3500 which if you compare to other high-End bodies like the Nikon D5 and Canon 1Dx which tend to sell at around £5000, this camera seems like a lot of bang for your buck.
What do you guys think of this camera ? its a real game changer!
