More Sony A9 Rumored Specs: 70-80MP Sensor, Better IBIS and HDR

Sony a7 Series Full-Frame Cameras

We know that Sony is working on a new flagship full frame mirrorless camera called Sony A9 (Sony Alpha 9). Aimed at professional action and sports photographers, the new Sony A9 full frame mirrorless camera will have dual XQD card slot and it will be capable of Unlimited RAW shooting, in order to compete with the big guns from Canon and Nikon! In addition, the size of the upcoming Sony A9 camera will be bigger than Sony A7RII (DSLR-like shooter), smaller than conventional DSLR (such as Canon EOS 5D Mark III).

Today according to the rumor coming out of SonyAlphaRumors, the upcoming Sony A9 flagship full frame mirrorless camera will feature an amazing 70-80MP sensor, better IBIS and HDR. This info was from an unknown source, so take it with a pinch of salt. Of course the Sony A9 will be amazing if the rumors turned out to be true.

So, if the Sony A9 had a 70-80MP sensor, will you like it or dislike it?

By the way, the announcement date of Sony A9 is rumored for Photokina 2016 in this September.

And, Sony is allegedly working on a new medium format mirrorless camera, which is expected to be unveiled at Photokina 2016. One problem here is it is unlikely that Sony will announce both the flagship A9 mirrorless camera and the new 100-megapixel sensor medium format mirrorless camera at Photokina…So, do you think the new Sony medium format mirrorless camera is the Sony A9??? let’s wait until photokina.
