This camera just released, and if you’re an action or sports photographer, it’s likely that you’re drooling (like me). The sony a (or alpha) series is a mirrorless series. Thus, it’s much more compact and lighter than a DSLR. If you’re an adventure photographer, mirrorless cameras offer a huge advantage due to less weight and packability. I currently have a a6000, the new a9 is 3 grades up in the series.
The cool specs:
– The camera’s max shutter speed is 1/32,000sec. The camera is capable of “calculating AF/AE at up to 60 times per second —
regardless of shutter release and frame capture.”
– Battery provides 2.2x the capacity of previous Sony full-frame cameras
– Quickest viewfinder released
This image (like the one above via Sony AlphaCollective, Stan Moniz, using an A7) will be able to be captured at a quicker frame rate. Thus, there is the potential for sharper images and many more.
