For the photographer who requires fast burst shooting, the Sony a9 camera offers continuous shooting of 20 fps with uninterrupted viewing and AF/AE tracking. A larger buffer allows up to 241 compressed RAW images or 362 JPEG images to be captured in one continuous burst. An incredible breakthrough, blackout-free shooting provides an uninterrupted view of your subject with a 60 fps live-view refresh rate. During burst shooting, the camera continues to make autofocus and auto-exposure calculations -- up to 60 per second, depending on camera settings -- to ensure that your moving subject remains properly exposed and in focus. Additionally, 693 phase detection AF points covering 93% of the frame track even the most erratic and fastest-moving subjects across the frame. This fast Hybrid AF system, pairing the speed and tracking performance of phase detection AF with the precision of contrast AF, achieves approximately 25% faster performance when compared with a7R II.

The new sensor and processor system provide an ISO range of 100 - 51200 (expandable to 50 - 204800), ensuring optimal image quality with minimal noise in low light, and at fast speeds. The new camera also supports uncompressed 14-bit RAW, ensuring users can get the most out of the wide dynamic range of the sensor. 4K (3840x2160p) video recording across the full width of the full-frame image sensor is supported and, when shooting in this format, the camera uses full pixel readout without pixel binning to collect 6K of information, oversampling it to produce high-quality 4K footage with exceptional detail and depth. Recording is also available in the popular Super 35mm size and the camera can record Full HD at 120 fps at up to 100 Mbps.

The Sony Alpha a9 Livestream will start at 7:30pm EDT and the panel will be fielding questions on Twitter throughout the event using the hashtag #BHPhotoLive. The Sony Alpha a9 is available for preorder at B&H Photo.
