The Alpha 9 III is a revolution in camera design tailored for sports and wildlife photography. This latest addition to the Alpha 9 series is a groundbreaking development, featuring a newly developed Exmor RS image sensor - the world’s first Full-frame stacked 24.6MP CMOS sensor to feature a global shutter system. Say good-bye to distortion in fast-moving scenes and witness zero viewfinder blackout during still image capture. Shoot continuous bursts at an astounding 120 frames per second with full AF and AE tracking. The Alpha 9 III AI processing unit ensures unparalleled subject recognition accuracy. It features a 1/80000 second maximum shutter speed for freezing fast objects, along with flash sync seamlessly at all shutter speeds up to the maximum 1/80000 second, eliminating the illumination drop-off seen with High-Speed Sync (HSS) and enabling you to capture challenging scenes. Experience the power of one frame.
 
 
 
 
A New Technological Leap
