First Sony A9 specs leaked on the web

First Sony A9 specs leaked on the web

The first set of Sony A9 specs have been leaked on the web, revealing that the high-end E-mount mirrorless camera with a full frame sensor will be able to capture 46-megapixel photos and to output 4K videos.

It is becoming quite obvious that Sony is working on a high-end FE-mount camera. The shooter will reportedly be unveiled sometime in the first months of next year as a device aimed at professional photographers, in order to compete with the big guns from Canon and Nikon.

Before its announcement, an insider has leaked a scarce list of possible specifications, which could make their way into the mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. Among the Sony A9 specs, we may find a 46-megapixel sensor and 4K video output.

Sony A7R is currently offering the highest resolution within the FE-mount line-up. This status will be taken by the Sony A9, which will employ a 46-megapixel sensor.

Sony A9 specs list shows up online, hints at 46-megapixel sensor

Sony has big plans for its line-up of E-mount cameras with full frame image sensors. A higher-end model, when compared to the A7 series, is coming fairly soon and it will capture 46-megapixel photos.

The sensor will be based on Bayer-like technology and will be capable of outputting videos at 4K resolution. This situation is similar to the A7S one, an FE-mount shooter that can record 4K videos with the help of an external recorder.

Its high-end status will be ensured by weathersealing, allowing photographers to keep taking photos when the environmental conditions are not very good.

Such big resolution will require high-quality lenses, but Sony has already promised that more good optics are coming by the end of 2015.

New pro-grade Sony A9 mirrorless camera could cost around $3,000

The Sony A9 specs list continues with a base ISO sensitivity range between 100 and 25,600, which can be expanded between 50-51,200 using built-in settings.

Previously, it has been said that this mirrorless camera will be marketed as a device for sports and action photography. However, the source says that it will offer a continuous shooting mode of up to 4fps.

This speed is not enough for sports photographers, so it is possible that the previous rumors were referring to a different model or that this information is slightly off the mark. Either way, the Sony A9 price tag will circle around the $3,000 mark.

An exact release date has not been revealed, but the mirrorless camera is most likely coming sometime in the first part of next year.
