The Sony a9III won Camera GP Japan’s Camera of the Year award and a readers’ choice award.

Reasons for choice
The mirrorless camera that for the first time adopts a global shutter*1 that has been considered ideal by now. It enables simultaneous exposure of all pixels on the sensor to eliminate the distortion of moving objects that occurred in conventional electronic shutters. It garners many votes as the ideal camera for capturing decisive moments in sports and wildlife photography. In addition to being able to synchronize flash shooting at up to 1/80,000 sec*2, it also supports the company’s first Pre-Capture continuous shooting. It’s a technological innovation that expands the possibilities of photographic expressions, and there are also expectations for its deployment to the future mass market class cameras. Furthermore, while minimizing the enlargements from previous models, the refinement of detailed shapes and the ease of operation as a tool are highly appreciated.

*1 According to Sony, as an interchangeable lens digital camera as of November 2023 at the time of the official announcement.
*2 With firmware version 2.00 and later, even during continuous shooting, the maximum shutter speed has been increased to 1/80,000 second. When shooting with an aperture faster than F1.8, the maximum shutter speed becomes 1/16,000 second. When using the high-resolution shutter function or when no lens is attached, the shutter speed does not reach 1/80,000 second.
