Sony a9: Sony Artisan Doesn’t Consider He Has A Defective Camera and Update

I am not sure why Manny Ortiz, put out this video shooting for around 20 minutes with an overheat indicator after only a few minutes, without considering that it might have come on because something is wrong with his camera. My test was significantly longer and under hotter conditions. I even live streamed about 30 minutes of my testing, which lasted for almost 3 hours and not once did my overheat indicator turn on. Further I didnt adjust the warning on the camera, which you can do. Manny Ortiz should swap out his camera ASAP.

The other Day I mention I would be shooting a dance recital with the Sony a9 and Fujifilm X-T2. Well there were quite a few differences that became aparent almost imediately. The Sony a9 was actually able to eye auto focus at 300mm on the dancers in motion, which I found shocking. Both cameras tracked about the same, but the Sony tracking indicators danced around more. I havent had a chance to edit the photos, but at first glance the Sony a9 has a lot of chroma noise, which I found disapointing. The almost limitless buffer of the Sony a9 made it the camera I picked up most frequently, but the Fujifilm X-T2 shutter release was better for short bursts. I can’t make a statement about the hit rate at the moment, I way overshot, but I did so intentionally because I am still brutalizing the a9.

    Make sense that some defective models could exhibit overheating especially when something as new as this and can be found in other kinds of technology from cars to cellphones that are defective.

    • It’s hard to tell how many there are, but many of the people reporting overheating see it intermittently it seems. I’ll run my testing a few more times when it’s even hotter outside.
