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 professional’s workflow with file transfer over SSL or TLS encryption (FTPS) for increased data security (shown here with the SEL2470GM lens, sold separately).
From the world’s largest sensor manufacturer comes the fastest 35mm full-frame 24.2 MP1 stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor, w/ 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 fps2with up to 60 AF/AE tracking calculations per second3, silent vibration-free electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32000 sec, Anti-Distortion Shutter operation14, 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 20fps2 at full 24.2MP1 resolution in RAW+JPEG with continuous AF/AE (autofocus and auto exposure) tracking at 60 calculations per second3 and no EVF or LCD blackout8. The large high speed buffer allow for up to 361 JPEG images or 239 compressed RAW images16 in a single burst. It is also possible to shoot up to 10 fps2 using the mechanical shutter.
2 - “Hi” continuous shooting mode. At shutter speed 1/125 sec. or higher. In AF-C mode the maximum continuous frame rate will depend on the shooting mode and lens used. A software update may be required for some lenses. Visit Sony’s support web page for lens compatibility information
The extremely high readout speed of the Alpha 9 II Exmor RS sensor allows for autofocus and auto exposure (AF/AE) to be calculated up to 60 times per second3 and is virtually uninterrupted, both while composing the image and even upon releasing the shutter. You can depend on the continuous autofocus to lock onto and track erratically moving subjects with significantly high speed, precision, and reliability, while exposure automatically adjusts even through sudden brightness changes for consistently accurate exposure.
14 - 1/32000 shutter speed is available only in the S and M modes (there are no intermediate settings between 1/16000 and 1/32000). The highest shutter speed in all other modes is 1/16000. Some distortion may occur when shooting fast-moving subjects or if the camera is moved sideways rapidly while using the electronic shutter.
The camera’s built-in wireless LAN functionality has been updated, adding a 5 GHz band7 to the 2.4 GHz band (IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards are supported). The benefits of 5 GHz communication include less interference as well as faster, more stable data transfer.
7- Models sold in some countries/regions support IEEE 802.11b/g/n (2.4 GHz) wireless LAN only. 5 GHz communication may be restricted in some countries and regions
Advanced AI-based subject recognition technology now allows fast, precise, automatic detection and tracking of animal eyes6 when Animal Eye-AF mode is selected. This can vastly increase success rates when photographing animals in a variety of settings or pets at home. Real-time Eye AF animal mode only works for stills and in any AF mode and can be initiated either by pressing an assigned custom button or by half-pressing the shutter button. Animal Eye-AF also works with Real-time Tracking in order to achieve unprecedented precision in tracking the eyes of moving subjects. Accurate focus may not be achieved with certain subjects in certain situations performance may not be as good as that in the human eye mode.
It is possible to manually preselect the subject’s right or left eye. This can be an advantage for portraiture in which the eye to be focused on is predetermined, allowing the photographer to concentrate on composition, lighting, and other details. The “Right/Left Eye Select” menu item allows selection of “Right eye,” “Left eye,” or “Auto,” and the selection is applied when Eye AF is activated and works for both stills and movies. A custom key can also be assigned to alternately switch between left and right eye focus each time the button is pressed for fast selection in a variety of situations. The right/left eye selection cannot be changed while the shutter button is half-pressed.
