Sony A9 Camera
Sony’s been holding it’s own and even outdoing, on several occasions, both of its main rivals in the camera world: Canon & Nikon. And the Sony A9 Camera charges on with features that’ll make Canon’s already fast 1D fluster. The A9 boasts a 24.2 megapixel full-frame stacked CMOS sensor behind both a traditional mechanical shutter as well as an electronic one. Using the latter means no blackouts on the viewfinder, silent operation devoid of vibrations (imagine a future of televised golf devoid of clicking), and of course very high speeds, shooting at up to 20fps with a max shutter speed of 1/32,000 of a second while never losing sight of your subject. Sony’s 4D Focus system is also worth noting, which is fast, operates uninterrupted even with the shutter released, and uses 693 phase-detection AF points that cover nearly the entirety of the image. And with a huge battery, dual memory card slots, and likely the best viewfinder ever fitted on a camera at Quad-VGA, the A9 isn’t lacking when it comes to important details that make or break your shooting, either.
