Sony a9 Q&A and First Look: High ISO Performance Similar to a7S

Kind of an interesting Q&A about the Sony a9 with a Sony rep that claims high ISO performance similar to the a7S mark II and adapted Canon glass performance as good or better than on Canon cameras. Bold claims for sure, but I wouldn’t doubt that the high ISO matches the a7S.

Other details:

  • Almost no reason for mechanical shutter
  • Strobes are currently designed for older technology like mechanical shutter
  • Any still camera overheats… but the a9 will be able to do better than previous cameras
  • It does 4k video almost better than any other camera out there… yet they left out slog and profiles
  • The sensor is so fast that flicker from LED isn’t really an issue so there is almost zero flicker/banding
  • Only lights that are very very slow should be a problem
  • High ISO similar to the a7S mark II (repeated from above)
  • Adapted Canon glass should perform as well or better on the a9 (repeated from above)
