The Sony α9 (the α is sometimes spelled out as Alpha), Model ILCE-9, is a full-frame mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera. It was Sony's flagship camera as of 2017. The camera is not the successor to the α7 line of digital cameras but supplements it. Announced on 19 April 2017, the α9 is characterized by Sony as a true professional mirrorless camera system. The α9 is being compared with the Nikon D5 and the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II.Sony has priced the α9 at $4,499.00 with an availability date in May 2017.
The headline feature of the α9 is the 20 frames per second with a buffer of 240 raw or 362 JPEG images. Another is what Sony calls blackout-free shooting. In a traditional DSLR, the mirror's up-and-down motion causes a temporary blackout when shooting in high continuous modes. The α9 removes this through the EVF due to the enhanced processing power of the stacked CMOS sensor and BIONZ X processor.
