More Sony A9 Rumors: 20fps, Fast AF, Low MP, Price $4500
The product in question is the Sony A9 and it is under development with 2 models, sources say. One of the models is said to feature a 70MP sensor. The other one will feature super high-performance AF, continuous shooting and ISO sensitivity.
According to the latest rumors, the first model in the series will feature a low-resolution sensor. As mentioned above this would be the high-perofrmance AF camera with 20fps continuous shooting.
It is easy to expect that it will feature in-body 5-axis image stabilization technology. Sony A7II was the world’s first full frame mirrorless camera with IBIS. So a higher-end product will definitely have it.
Previous rumors claims that the new camera will be capable of capturing unlimited RAW photos in continuous shooting mode. This means it can capture unlimited and won’t pause for buffering. It will also have dual card slots. Both slots will support only XQD cards.
This is the latest Sony A9 rumors which will be the next flagship model. The sales price should be around $4500.
