This week Sony introduces its new a9 full-frame mirrorless camera. The full-frame stacked CMOS sensor (24.2 megapixels) is paired with 693 autofocus points, as the camera shoots 4K video, welcomes 5-axis in-body stabilization, dual SD card slots, and an ethernet port.

The impressive continuous shooting in turn allows photographers to capture fast-moving subjects with ease, at up to 20 frames-per-second for up to 241 consecutive RAWs (362 JPEGs). The maximum shutter speed is 1/32,000 second, while the 693 phase-detect AF points cover roughly 93 percent of the frame.

In terms of battery, the a9 provides 2.2 times the capacity of previous Sony full-frame cameras.

You can look forward to Sony’s new a9 camera ($4,500 USD) releasing stateside May 25.
