More Rumor about the Sony A9 High End E-mount Mirrorless Camera

Yesterday we shared the “Top 10 Features I Want From the Rumored Sony A9“. Today a man, who said he had the chance to see the new Sony High End E-mount camera, leaked some info about this upcoming Sony E-mount mirrorless camera. Here is the recap from SAR:

It is not gonna be a bigger body like canon 1dx but is definitely bigger than the current generation.
The grip is chunkier and taller than the older ones.  The screen looked bigger to me as well but still you’ll have a tilting screen. No lateral hinges.

I couldn’t check about the SD card but the photographer was from sand disk so i guess the still use SD card but there’s place for 2 i guess. There’s an interesting lever/button that look like is for open the card door. They added a nipple joystick for af points selection but the rest is pretty familiar.

I couldn’t check the firmware and the final name since was masked and the software was modified.
The photographer was shooting on the real cam and the burst rate was quite impressive. I guess around 14fps or more by the sound.

I shoot on the 16-35 2.8 but for the other scenes they where using the new 100-400 even tho was all masked with tape to not show.
Size wise the 2 lens are comparable to the competition so i wouldn’t expect the zoom to be faster.

The 16-35 is pretty heavy in the hand but in line with the 24-70

Take this with a grain of salt for the time being, as it comes from a new source.

The upcoming Sony A9 High End E-mount Camera will be placed above the Sony A7-series and have dual card slots. The main competitors will be Nikon D5 and Canon EOS 1D-X Mark II. Now you can join the Sony Alpha a9 Facebook group.
