Japanese Camera Journal Press Club Sony a9 Selected as Camera of The Year 2018


The Japanese Camera Journal Press Club picked the Sony a9 as their camera of the year for 2018.

Reason for selection
A historical one that makes you feel the possibility of future cameras. It has high performance as a mirrorless machine adopting a 35 mm full-size image sensor. The possibility of a mirrorless camera using the electronic shutter as the main instead of the mechanical shutter was demonstrated by the high speed reading of the built-in 35 mm full size stacked CMOS image sensor. It realizes continuous shooting of up to 20 frames / second and elimination of blackout of the electronic viewfinder with AF / AE tracking in silent shooting with an image with little distortion though it is an electronic shutter. The AF performance is also high, the precision by the image surface phase difference AF of 693 points covering about 93% of the screen is high, and the pupil AF which recognizes the human eyes and focuses also has high trackability. The impression of the mirrorless camera is changed from the ground, and it is made to feel that there is a shooting scene, what can be taken because of this camera because it is a still picture or a moving picture. A camera that answers professional applications. Many of the selection committee appreciated their advancedness highly.
