An important flagship has been added to Sony’s Alpha family, which has an important place in photography. The Sony Alpha 9 II full-frame mirrorless camera is aimed at photographers and photojournalists.
The Alpha 9 II comes with a 24.2 MP full-frame Exmor RS CMOS sensor, but with a lower resolution than expected, the enhancements on the shooting side seem to close the gap.
The sensor can capture 361 JPEG images or 239 compressed RAW images at 20 frames per second. There is no viewfinder loss and no interruptions. This figure is twice as much as the Alpha 9.
The integrated 1000BASE-T Ethernet terminal provides uninterrupted and high-speed connectivity and ensures secure transmission with SSL or TSL encryption standards. In addition, remote shooting performance with PC has been improved. On the other hand, the WiFi 5 standard allows wireless connection over the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands.
With Voice Memo, you can add audio to your photos, allowing photojournalists to share important notes. In addition, when sent to a private application, voice memos are converted to text memos and photographs are added to them. This format can be stored on FTP servers without special application. This is a remarkable feature.
The camera is also able to calculate auto focus and auto exposure up to 60 times per second, making it particularly convenient for sports events. The UHS-I and UHS-II standard features two SD card slots and a USB 3.1 Type-C connector.
New modules such as the ECM-B1M Shotgun microphone provide direct access to the Multi Interface Shoe (MI Shoe) digital audio interface while the housing is made more resistant to dust and moisture. Thus, cleaner sound can be captured.
The Sony Alpha 9 II , which will be available during the month, has a price tag of 400 Euros and is much higher than the US price. In our country, the Sony Alpha 9 model was around 25000TL.
