A buzzer beater jump shot at overtime to win a game, a penalty kick to break a deadlock, and a last minute burst of speed to outsprint an opponent—these are the events that have led to some of the world’s most iconic sports photographs of all time. Sports photographers know that know that most of the time preserving these moments is a combination of luck, timing and lightning-fast camera.

Sony is introducing the brand new full-frame camera—the α9 (ILCE-9). The α9 revolutionizes sports photography and offers action photographers a brand new must-have device in their arsenal that delivers photos worth publishing in history books. The brand new α9 offers a level of imaging performance that is simply unmatched by any camera ever created and is touted as the most technologically advanced, innovative digital camera that Sony has ever created.

The α9 offers many impressive capabilities that are simply not possible with today’s digital SLR cameras including high-speed, blackout-free continuous shooting3 at up to 20fps4, 60 AF/AE tracking calculations per second,  a maximum shutter speed of up to 1/32,000 second8 and more. Making these capabilities possible is its 35mm full-frame stacked Exmor RS™ CMOS sensor – the first of its kind – which processes data up to 20x faster than previous Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras .

Critical to the record-breaking speed of the new α9 is the combination of the new stacked 24.2 MP2 Exmor RS image sensor, new BIONZ X processor and front end LSI.

The immense processing power from these new components allows for faster AF/AE calculation while also reducing EVF display latency. The processor and front end LSI are also responsible for the larger continuous shooting buffer, enabling photographers to shoot at a blazing 20 fps4 with continuous AF/AE tracking for up to 362 JPEG6 or 241 RAW5 images.

This industry-leading speed is combined with a focusing system that features an incredible 693 phase detection AF points. Covering approximately 93% of the frame, the focusing system ensures that even the fastest moving subjects are reliably captured and tracked across the frame.

The camera’s innovative AF system tracks complex, erratic motion with higher accuracy than ever before, with the ability to calculate AF/AE at up to 60 times per second10, regardless of shutter release and frame capture.  When the shutter is released while shooting stills, the electronic viewfinder functions with absolutely no blackout , giving the user a seamless live view of their subject at all times.
