Sony A9 Wins EISA Best Camera 2017-2018 Award
Sony A9 Wins EISA Camera of the Year Award

The following video presents Sony | α | α9 – Product Feature:
α9 goes beyond the norms of camera function and operation, offering new expressive potential for professional creators.
This is the E-mount full-frame interchangeable lens digital camera to feature a 35mm full-frame stacked CMOS sensor with integral memory. The sensor’s stacked structure and integral memory contribute to the unprecedented readout speed achieved by the sensor and image-processing engine.
High speed enables continuous shooting at up to 20 fps, blackout-free shooting, up to 60 AF/AE tracking calculations per second, silent, vibration-free Anti-Distortion Shutter operation at up to 1/32,000 sec., and other capabilities that add up to an all-new shooting experience without interference from mechanical devices.

*[00:48] [00:54] Correction of annotation: At shutter speeds of 1/125 sec or higher.

The many photography experts of the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA Awards 2017-2018) have put their seal of approval on the camera that many of us already knew would win, hands down: The Sony α9 mirrorless camera is deemed “groundbreaking” and “in many ways surpasses traditional DSLR rivals,” and is therefore awarded the Camera of the Year award. At the top, while Canon edged Nikon for the third year in a row, it is not a race between Canon and Nikon anymore. Welcome, Sony.

It’s unfortunate we have only one camera per category. It would be interesting to see the runner ups in each category and the number of votes each got. For example, where does Olympus mirrorless cameras rate? They should be way up there.

Still prefer a DSLR?
