Sony a9 II Mirrorless Camera
Built for Speed, Reliability and Productivity
The Sony a9 II Mirrorless Camera offers advances that answer the demands of professional workflows, including sophisticated operability and network connectivity for enhanced support in the field, rugged go-anywhere reliability and unrivalled speed.
High-speed continuous shooting at up to 20fps 2
Groundbreaking full-frame Exmor RSTM CMOS sensor and BIONZ XTM processor team up for 20fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking. Stunning high-speed performance and ample buffer let you capture the decisive moment.
Blackout-Free Shooting 8
Electronic shutter eliminates blackout typical of SLR mirror cameras. Subject is visible during shutter release, with 60fps live-view and minimal display lag in continuous shooting.

4D FOCUS: Wide AF
With 693 phase-detection and 425 contrast-detection AF points, the sensor provides wide and high-density AF covering 93% of the image.
4D FOCUS: Fast AF
Thanks to responsive enhanced Fast Hybrid AF, the α9 II delivers swift AF even under dim lighting conditions, with a remarkable ability to capture a subject.
4D FOCUS: Steadfast Tracking
Uninterrupted AF and an optimized AF algorithm dramatically enhance AF accuracy and tracking. Even during shutter release, constant AF activation allows continuous tracking of subject motion.
Speed meets artificial intelligence
Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF are both designed for fast, precise and intelligent tracking of your subject, using AI-based algorithms and processing an enormous amount of data in real time.
AI-based Real-time Tracking
After the subject is specified, precise focus is maintained while the shutter button is half-pressed. Position changes are accurately tracked, providing framing flexibility as you concentrate on getting the best shot.
The AI recognition algorithm efficiently processes color, pattern, distance, face, and eye data from the image sensor for high accuracy.

Reliable even in low light
Advanced AF algorithms contribute to AF precision at light levels as low as EV-3. The Focus Priority in Aperture Drive option is for more accurate focusing in dim lighting and when the aperture is stopped down.
Improved Focus Frame Usability
Even with the shutter button half-pressed, the focus area can now be moved with the multi-selector to any location. Conveniently, the focus frame color can be set to red or white to suit the scene.
Highly Advanced Stacked CMOS Sensor
Approx. 24.2 effective megapixels, high sensitivity, back-illuminated configuration, gapless on-chip lens architecture, and other Sony innovations deliver stunning images in a wide range of photographic situations.
The Latest Image Processing System
The latest BIONZ X image processing engine works in tandem with the front-end LSI to maximize high-resolution sensor performance.
Superb image quality
High-sensitivity performance up to ISO 51200 and algorithm advances realize smooth expression, including natural skin colors and smooth gradations in areas such as the sky. 14-bit RAW output is available.
3.68-Million-Dot Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder™
The 3.68-million-dot viewfinder (EVF) shows a detailed image. 120fps finder frame rate setting provides a smooth viewfinder image with minimal motion blur. Fluorine coating on the outer lens repels dirt and makes it easier to clean.
In-Body 5-Axis Optical Image Stabilization
In-body 5-axis optical image stabilization gives a 5.5-step18 shutter speed advantage. Live-view monitor image stabilization allows easy image composition even with fast-moving subjects.

Blur reducing structure
Sony re-engineered the shutter unit assembly with dampened screws to absorb any shutter shock, and an enhanced image stabilization algorithm effectively reduces image blur. Shutter sound has also been reduced.
Beautiful 4K Movie Recording
Beautiful 4K movie recording. Full-pixel readout with no pixel binning makes it possible to condense approximately 2.4 times the amount of data required for 4K (the equivalent of the amount of data required for 6K) into 3840 x 2160 4K output. Versatile with Fast Hybrid AF performance, Eye AF functions, Touch Tracking, etc.
