The Sony a9 is Here!

In Photography by Jerad HillLeave a Comment

I recently received the Sony a9 I purchased as a pre-order and have been putting it through the paces. I am excited to report back and share my findings with everybody. The biggest question I have been receiving is whether or not it is worth the added cost over the Sony a7rII. The jury is still out on that decision. I have to spend more time with the camera to determine if it’s worth the price. This camera is geared toward Sports Photographers, but I was intrigued when I saw the zero blackout of the shutter. You can continuously look through the shutter as you take photos and not be interrupted by a photo preview or anything distraction. You can just continue to shoot. It’s hard to explain, but it’s amazing. Here are a couple of photos I took with my Sony a6500 of the camera while I waited for the Sony a9’s battery to charge up.
