    α9 II full-frame camera with pro capability

    Full-Frame Stacked CMOS Sensor with Integral Memory

    Α9 II is the mirrorless camera that delivers next-generation high-speed performance far exceeding SLRs. It's equipped with the outstanding 35 mm stacked CMOS image sensor with integral memory for impressively fast overall readout speed. This 24.2 MP4 image sensor achieves high sensitivity of up to ISO 204800 (extended)5 with the design of back-illuminated structure.

    High-speed BIONZ X image processing engine

    The camera's image-processing algorithms represent the latest generation of advancements, allowing higher levels of natural tonal gradations and more stable AWB for continuous shooting.

    Uncompromising Image Quality

    The combination of a 24.2 effective megapixel4 integral-memory full-frame stacked CMOS image sensor and the latest-generation BIONZ X makes possible high-sensitivity performance up to ISO 512005, high dynamic range, and support for 14-bit RAW output and 16-bit image processing. Together, they help capture maximum detail and image quality while reproducing rich tonal gradations and natural color, such as human skin.

    Incredibly Fast Continuous Shooting

    Thanks to the α9 II's incredible speed, continuous shooting is possible at up to 20fps1 with the electronic shutter and 10fps6 with the mechanical shutter, to capture fast-moving subjects with either shutter mode, and even at its highest speed, the flash can be synchronized with the mechanical shutter.

    AF/AE Calculations up to 60 Times/sec7

    AF/AE is calculated up to 60 times per second7 and is virtually uninterrupted, both while composing the image and even upon releasing the shutter. Continuous AF/AE-operated on the image sensor-locks onto and tracks erratically moving subjects with high speed, precision, and reliability. Additionally, AWB Lock capability makes it possible to lock/unlock auto white balance operation at any time, which is useful in mixed lighting situations where natural and man-made light sources coexist.

    Blackout-free Shooting2 with Quad-VGA OLED Tru-FinderTM

    In continuous shooting, the electronic shutter system banishes blackout interruption typical of optical viewfinders, and the high-speed image sensor eliminates distracting EVF display lag. A high 120fps8 refresh rate minimizes display blurring of moving subjects, and the Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder with approx. 3.68 million-dot high resolution employs ZEISS® T* Coating to reduce reflections, with a dirt-repelling fluorine coating on the outer lens to enhance usability on location.

    High-Speed 1/32000 sec9 Anti-Distortion Shutter

    A result of Sony's image sensor innovation, this shutter achieves speeds up to 1/32000 sec9, beyond the limits of mechanical systems. Additionally, the high curtain speed of the electronic shutter suppresses rolling shutter effect10 to excellently capture moving subjects during sports and other fast-moving activities.

    Silent shooting

    Explore the advantages of high-speed silent shooting3 with a shutter that is fully digital - without a physical mechanism. The electronic shutter allows silent shooting without mechanical mirror and shutter noise. It's ideal for sports and subjects that demand quiet operation, greatly expanding camera versatility.

    Anti-flicker shooting11

    Flicker from fluorescent and other artificial lighting is automatically detected and shutter action is timed to minimize the effect of flicker on still images. This suppresses exposure and color anomalies at the top and bottom of images shot at high shutter speeds, as well as exposure and color inconsistency between continuous shots, so you can take images indoors with more confidence.

    4D FOCUS: From AF Wide Coverage, Speed, and Tracking Stability

    4D FOCUS means highly accurate subject detection, reliable rapid autofocusing, and continuous tracking of subjects in motion, based on uninterrupted AF and an optimized AF algorithm as well as the approximately 93% AF coverage from 693 focal-plane phase-detection AF points that track random subject motion even during shutter release.

    Real-time Tracking

    The Real-time Tracking technology uses AI to detect moving subjects from the wealth of information captured by the image sensor. Spatial data consisting of color, pattern (brightness) and distance information are processed in parallel at high speed, and human and animal face and eye location data are detected continuously in real time using AI, realizing high-accuracy with automatic detection and tracking performance for moving subjects.

    Real-Time Eye AF for Humans and Animals

    Real-time Eye AF relies on advanced AI to continuously analyze and detect eyes from the image sensor's copious data, with left or right eye preference possible with a simple toggle12. By half-pressing the shutter button, even animal13, 14 eyes are detected. Team it up with Real-time Tracking for superior tracking performance of live subjects.

    Precision AF Effective Down to EV-315 Brightness

    Low-light AF detection extends to EV-315 at ISO 100. The Focus Priority in Aperture Drive option enables more accurate focusing in dim lighting and when the aperture is stopped down with the result that the precision AF system will function properly even when shooting dimly lit scenes16. This opens up new possibilities in low-light and night shooting.

    AF/AE-tracking continuous shooting with A-mount lenses

    The body's 693-point focal-plane phase-detection AF provides wide-area coverage, fast response, and high tracking performance, not only for E-mount but also for A-mount lenses17 with use of a mount adaptor (LA-EA3). Continuous shooting of up to 10fps18 with AF tracking is possible.

    User-Selectable Focus Area Circulation and Customization

    A new setting allows the focus area to be rotated through the upper, lower, left, and right edges of the frame to select an appropriate focus area for sports or other situations where the subject frequently moves through the frame. AF area and ISO display limiting makes it possible to display only the most frequently used focus area and ISO settings for quicker, easier selection for faster, more efficient shooting.

    Body-Integrated 5-Axis Optical Image Stabilization

    The body-integrated image stabilization system is fine-tuned to compensate accurately for 5-axis camera shake that can compromise handheld shooting. This gives you extremely high performance in both stills and movies, whether shooting at longer focal lengths, in close-ups, or at night. It is equivalent to using a 5.5-step19 faster shutter speed, allowing stable determination of composition when capturing subjects in high-speed motion. Real-time effects can be monitored via live view. (1) Yaw (2) Pitch (3) Roll.

    Shutter Durability and Image Shake Suppression

    The shutter has been tested for durability in excess of 500,000 shutter-release cycles20 and incorporates an internal damper structure to absorb the impact of shutter motion for minimum shutter vibration and noise, helping to also realize more sharply resolved imaging.

    Reliable Durability and Weather Resistance21 in Tough Situations

    The α9 II brings you further enhanced body durability, with full use of lightweight, high-rigidity magnesium alloy for covers and internal frame, keeping the camera highly rigid and light. In response to pro opinions, enhanced sealing is applied to the battery cover, terminal cover and all joints in the chassis. A double-sealed sliding mechanism replaces the hinge of the media compartment lid for better moisture resistance21. Routes to dust and moisture entry have been re-examined, and a cushion around the lens mount has been added to ensure reliable operation in challenging environments.

    Dual media slots, both supporting UHS-II

    The α9 II provides two media slots for SD cards, both SLOT 1 and SLOT 2 are now compatible with UHS-I and UHS-II for fast mass-volume data writing. Two cards in the slots can be used to simultaneously record or relay record data; separate RAW data from JPEG data, or stills from movies, and copy data from one card to the other. A slide lock structure prevents the memory card cover from being opened unintentionally.

    Professional-Level Operating Stamina

    The α9 II employs the large-capacity NP-FZ100 battery and a highly energy-efficient circuit design to double operation longevity to professional session lengths. The robust VG-C4EM vertical-position grip is available for greater operability and even longer hours of shooting. In addition to other optional accessories, USB Type-C and Multi/Micro USB ports allow external mobile batteries to power the camera for further extended recording.
