    About The Sony A9 Mk II Mirrorless Camera Body

    Built for speed, reliability and productivity

    The α9 II offers advances that answer the demands of professional workflows, including sophisticated operability and network connectivity for enhanced support in the field, rugged go-anywhere reliability and unrivalled speed.

    Speed and productivity for working pros

    The overwhelming speed performance of the α9, which changed the game in sports and news photography, is now reborn with additional enhancements that boost professional workflow productivity.

    Full-frame stacked integral-memory CMOS sensor

    The 24.2-megapixel9 full-frame high-speed stacked image sensor stores data in integral memory for lightning-fast readout. The CMOS sensor and enhanced BIONZ X image-processing engine together bring you true digital freedom.

    Speed meets artificial intelligence

    Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF are both designed for fast, precise and intelligent tracking of your subject, using AI-based algorithms and processing an enormous amount of data in real time.

    Beautiful 4K movie recording

    Beautiful 4K movie recording is realised. Full-pixel readout with no pixel binning makes it possible to condense approximately 2.4 times the amount of data required for 4K (the equivalent of the amount of data required for 6K) into 3840 x 2160 4K output. Versatile with Fast Hybrid AF performance, Eye AF functions, Touch Tracking, etc.;

    High-speed continuous shooting at up to 20fps

    Ground-breaking full-frame Exmor RSTM CMOS sensor and BIONZ XTM processor team up for 20fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking. Stunning high-speed performance and ample buffer let you capture the decisive moment.

    Blackout-free Shooting

    Electronic shutter eliminates blackout typical of SLR mirror cameras. Subject is visible during shutter release, with 60fps live-view and minimal display lag in continuous shooting.

    AF/AE calculations up to 60 times/sec

    Light reaches the image sensor without mechanical interruption. Mirrorless construction and speed-enhancing technologies provide AF/AE at the full-frame focal plane.

    Electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32000 sec.

    Electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32000 sec. far surpass mechanical shutters for a new imaging expression. You can also maintain shallow depth of field without an ND filter, even under bright conditions.

    No distracting sounds

    An anti-distortion electronic shutter allows the scene to be captured silently, with no risk of mechanical mirror or shutter sounds disrupting the tension at a sports event, for example.

    Anti-flicker shooting

    Flicker from fluorescent and other artificial lighting is detected, and shutter operation is timed to suppress exposure and colour anomalies (at high shutter speeds) and inconsistency between continuous shots.

    10fps with mechanical shutter

    The mechanical shutter now allows continuous shooting at up to 10fps, and can also be used with a flash8. You can deploy high-speed continuous shooting for scenes as appropriate.

    4D FOCUS: Wide AF

    With 693 phase-detection and 425 contrast-detection AF points, the sensor provides wide and high-density AF covering 93% of the image.

    4D FOCUS: Fast AF

    Thanks to responsive enhanced Fast Hybrid AF, the α9 II delivers swift AF even under dim lighting conditions, with a remarkable ability to capture a subject.

    4D FOCUS: Steadfast Tracking

    Uninterrupted AF and an optimised AF algorithm dramatically enhance AF accuracy and tracking. Even during shutter release, constant AF activation allows continuous tracking of subject motion.

    AI-based Real-time Tracking

    After the subject is specified, precise focus is maintained while the shutter button is half-pressed. Position changes are accurately tracked, providing framing flexibility as you concentrate on getting the best shot.

    Underlying technology

    The AI recognition algorithm efficiently processes colour, pattern, distance, face and eye data from the image sensor for high accuracy.

    Instant focusing on one eye

    Even when another object passes in front, Real-time Eye AF can maintain focus on one of the subject’s eyes when the shutter is half-pressed, or by pressing AF-ON or a custom button.

    Right/left eye selection to meet your need

    You can even select a specific eye — left or right — before or during shooting via custom button. Eye selection allows you to focus on composition, lighting, and other details.

    Eye AF for Animals

    Fast, precise automatic detection and tracking with animal and human eye tracking greatly increases the success rate in capturing images of animals in the wild or pets at home.

    Reliable even in low light

    Advanced AF algorithms contribute to AF precision at light levels as low as EV-3. ‘Focus Priority in Aperture Drive’ option is for more accurate focusing in dim lighting and when the aperture is stopped down.

    Improved focus frame usability

    Even with the shutter button half-pressed, the focus area can now be moved with the multi-selector to any location. Conveniently, the focus frame colour can be set to red or white to suit the scene.

    Highly advanced stacked CMOS sensor

    Approx. 24.2 effective megapixels, high sensitivity, back-illuminated configuration, gapless on-chip lens architecture, and other Sony innovations deliver stunning images in a wide range of photographic situations.

    The latest image processing system

    The latest BIONZ X image processing engine works in tandem with the front-end LSI to maximise high-resolution sensor performance.

    Superb image quality

    High-sensitivity performance up to ISO 51200 and algorithm advances realise smooth expression including natural skin colours and smooth gradations in regions like sky. 14-bit RAW output is available.

    3.68 million dot Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder™

    The 3.68 million-dot viewfinder (EVF) shows a detailed image. 120fps finder frame rate setting provides a smooth viewfinder image with minimal motion blur. Fluorine coating on the outer lens repels dirt and makes it easier to clean.

    In-body 5-axis optical image stabilisation

    In-body 5-axis optical image stabilisation gives a 5.5-step17 shutter speed advantage. Live-view monitor image stabilisation allows easy image composition even with fast-moving subjects.

    Blur reducing structure

    Sony re-engineered the shutter unit assembly with dampened screws to absorb any shutter shock, and an enhanced image stabilisation algorithm effectively reduces image blur. Shutter sound has also been reduced.

    Real-time Eye AF now for movie shooting

    Real-time Eye AF newly supports movie shooting by detecting the subject’s eyes and continuing to track one eye. As the α9 II keeps that eye in precise focus, you can concentrate on composition.

    Touch Tracking for persistent focus on your subject

    When shooting movies on the α9 II, a subject touched on the LCD monitor is automatically focused and followed with Touch Tracking. If a human eye is spotted, Real-time Eye AF activates and tracks it too.

    Compatible with multi-functional new mic

    The Multi Interface Shoe (MI Shoe) is enhanced with a Digital audio interface. Use the new ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone to record high-quality sound with minimised deterioration.

    High-speed data transfer with 1000BASE-T available

    Smooth, reliable high-speed data transfer of large image files to a designated FTP server is now available via LAN terminal supporting 1000BASE-T. FTPS (File Transfer Protocol over SSL/TLS) guarantees high security.

    Support for background FTP data transfers

    To meet pro needs for prompt delivery, the α9 II supports FTP data transfers in the background during and after shooting for JPEG and RAW file delivery. Up to nine FTP servers can be assigned in advance.

    Add voice memos to your images

    The new Voice Memo20 function lets you record audio descriptions of content or shooting conditions up to 60 sec. long, attached to images as .wav files. IPTC and camera serial number information can also be embedded in image files.

    Remote operation with Remote Camera Tool

    Remote operation is available with the Remote Camera Tool21 desktop application, convenient when photographer access is restricted, such as shooting a birds-eye view from the roof of a sports arena.

    5GHz Wi-Fi® provided

    As well as 2.4GHz-band, high-speed transfer is now possible via 5GHz-band Wi-Fi® (wireless LAN IEEE 802.11ac). Wireless PC remote shooting is now also possible, freeing your shooting styles from the constraints of cables.

    Even faster PC remote shooting with wired connection via USB

    The newly-adopted USB Type-CTM connection and enhancements to the PC remote shooting algorithm deliver significant improvements in transfer rate. You can transfer large uncompressed RAW images smoothly without workflow interruption.

    Easy operation in vertical orientation

    The new VG-C4EM provides controls with optimised location, size, shape and material similar to those on the camera body to simulate the operational “feel” when the camera is held vertically.

    Extend shooting to professional length

    The α9 II uses a high-capacity NP-FZ100 battery. Alternatively, two of these can be used in the optional VG-C4EM Vertical Grip for longer shooting durations and worry-free shooting in the field.

    Dual media slots, both supporting UHS-II

    Both media slots are compatible with UHS-I and UHS-II for fast data writing. The α9 II can simultaneously or relay record, separate RAW/JPEG data and stills/movies, and copy data between cards.

    Save/Load Settings

    The new Save/Load Settings function saves and loads camera settings to and from SD memory card for convenient sharing with other α9 II cameras. Under “FTP Transfer Func.” is the “Save/Load FTP Settings” function, which saves and loads the FTP related settings.

    Efficient image selection

    Apply star ratings and image protection via the review playback display right on the spot. You can now also review large photo collections in 10 or 100 frame jumps, and group-review continuous burst shots.
