Sony A9 II now official!

Sony has just revealed its latest flagship camera for the Alpha series of cameras, the A9 II. It retains the original A9's 24.2MP Exmor RS CMOS sensor but is now paired with an upgraded BIONZ X image processor that increases performance in silent shooting of up to 20 fps for up to 361 JPEG images or 239 compressed RAW images without viewfinder blackout using the Electronic Shutter.

The mechanical shutter has also been redesigned that now allows for up to 10fps or twice the speed of the original Alpha 9.

Sony also improved the ergonomics of the camera with slightly new layout and grip design. The company also improved the dust and moisture resistance with stronger sealing all throughout the body.

It still offers the same 5.5 stops of 5-axis in-body image stabilization that the Alpha line has been known for.

Two key new features that have been added are the 1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet terminal and a new USB Type-C 3.2 port that effectively increases the speed of file transfers to improve the quality and speed of workflow for both Photographers.

USB Type-C connector supports fast USB 3.2 Gen 1 data transfer.

It now includes the new Multi-Interface Shoe that allows connection to Sony's ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone or the XLR-K3M XLR adaptor kit to be mounted directly for improved sound quality.

Lastly, both of the dual SD card slots now support UHS-II.

The new Alpha 9 II will be available this November 2019 in the United States for a measly USD 4,500 or around PHP 233K for the body only. This is direct conversion without shipping, taxes or duties. 

There is no word yet on PH pricing and availability.
