The Sony A9 Mark II is the successor to the widely popular and well-received Sony A9. It is a Full-Frame Mirrorless system camera offering 35mm full-frame stacked 24.2 MP Exmor RS CMOS sensor, and in-built 1000BASE-T Ethernet terminal. All of this has been packed into an extremely compact, stylish, and portable body. The A9 Mark II is undoubtedly a marvel of digital camera technology and a worthy addition to the Sony Alpha Mirrorless-System camera line-up.

Stunning Image Stabilisation
Upgraded BIONZ X image processing engine gains maximum benefit from the sensor’s fast readout speed. Processor works with front-end LSI to enhance speed in AF/AE detection, image processing, face detection and accuracy, and more. Redesigned shutter mechanisms to suppress even the slightest movement that can cause image blur. Tested for durability in excess of 500,000 shutter cycles. 5-axis optical in-body image stabilisation system that provides a shutter speed advantage of 5.5 steps.
Outrageously Powerful AF System
The advanced focusing system in the new Alpha 9 II is comprised of 693 focal-plane phase-detection AF points covering approximately 93% of the image area, as well as 425 contrast AF points. This Fast Hybrid Auto Focus system achieves extremely fast and accurate performance, ensuring all fast-moving subjects are accurately captured. Additional notable focusing capabilities include Real-time Eye AF with right eye / left eye selection, Real-time Eye AF for animals – augmented with a new algorithm, Real-Time Eye AF for movie, Real-time Tracking, selectable focus frame colour, Touch Pad focus point control while using the viewfinder and more. AF can continuously track even in continuous shooting is greater than F16, providing further accuracy for shots that require slower shutter speeds. The camera is able to function whilst continuously calculating Auto Focus and Auto Exposure at up to 60 times per second, with newly optimised AF algorithms that provide notably enhanced AF precision and performance, ensuring that even the most erratic subject motion, often experienced in sports, is captured with high precision. Also useful for sporting events, the camera now offers an anti-flicker shooting mode that automatically detects and adjusts for the presence of fluorescent or artificial lighting to maximise image quality.
Improved button design and feel. Increased diameter and feedback of the ‘AF-ON’ button; a refined multi-selector joystick design; an exposure compensation dial lock button and a redesigned shape and new position for the rear dial. Improved grip configuration for even greater comfort and sure hold. Compatible with Sony VG-C4EM Vertical Grip. Digital audio interface has been added to the camera’s Multi Interface Shoe enabling the new ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone or XLR-K3M XLR Adaptor Kit to be connected directly to the MI Shoe for cleaner, clearer audio recordings. Dual media slots that are both compatible with UHS-I and UHS-II SD cards, allowing higher overall capacity and faster read/write speeds. USB Type-C connector that supports fast USB 3.2 Gen 1 data transfer.
