Created specifically to support working professionals in the fields of sports photography and photojournalism, the Alpha 9 II delivers unmatched performance including blackout-free continuous shooting8 at up to 20 frames per second2 with Auto Focus and Auto Exposure tracking at 60 calculations per second3, plus continuous shooting at up to 10 fps with mechanical shutter. Evolved Artificial Intelligence autofocus with Real Time AF tracking6 for accurate image acquisition and built-in connectivity and file delivery for the professionals workflow with file transfer over SSL or TLS encryption (FTPS) for increased data security.
From the worlds largest sensor manufacturer comes the fastest 35mm full-frame 24.2 MP1 stacked Exmor RS® CMOS sensor, which includes several features that contribute to incredible high-speed performance and outstanding image quality. Separate circuit and pixel layers allow for a significant increase in processing speed for the large volume of data that can also be temporarily stored in internal memory, contributing to a substantial increase in overall pixel readout speed. The combination of this advanced sensor and evolved BIONZ X processing enables blackout-free8 continuous shooting at up to 20 fps with up to 60 AF/AE tracking calculations per second3, silent vibration-free electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32000 sec, Anti-Distortion Shutter operation, and other capabilities that add up to unprecedented speed from a full-frame camera without interference from mechanical devices.
Capture all the action at the highest speed. A combination of groundbreaking high-speed full-frame stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor with integral memory and BIONZ X processor with DRAM enables incredible completely silent continuous shooting up to 20fps at full 24.2MP resolution in RAW+JPEG with continuous AF/AE (autofocus and auto exposure) tracking at 60 calculations per second3 and no EVF or LCD blackout. The large high speed buffer allow for up to 361 JPEG images or 239 compressed RAW images in a single burst. It is also possible to shoot up to 10 fps using the mechanical shutter.
