Sony Alpha a9 III Mirrorless Digital Camera

The Sony Alpha a9 III is a high-performance mirrorless camera boasting the world's first full-frame global shutter sensor. This innovative technology eliminates rolling shutter distortion and enables blackout-free continuous shooting at up to 120fps with full autofocus and autoexposure.

Combined with its 24.6MP stacked CMOS sensor, 10-bit 4:2:2 internal recording, and 8-stop in-body image stabilization, the a9 III excels in capturing fast-action, sports, wildlife, and professional applications.

  • 24.6MP Full-Frame Global Shutter Sensor
  • Up to 120 fps Cont. Shooting with AF/AE
  • Pre-Capture Function; Speed Boost Button
  • Flash Sync at up to 1/80,000 Sec.
  • 4K 120p 10-bit Video; S-Log3 & S-Cinetone
  • 759-Point Phase-Detect AF with Tracking
  • 8-Stop 5-Axis In-Body Image Stabilisation
  • Dual CFexpress Type A/SD Card Slots

The next capture era starts now

The α9 III features the world's first full-frame stacked 24.6 MP CMOS image sensor with a global shutter system. Unlike a rolling shutter sensor that records images sequentially from the top row of pixels to the bottom, the newly-developed Exmor RS™ image sensor exposes and reads all pixels simultaneously so the camera can capture fast-moving subjects with absolutely no distortion.

Combined with a maximum shutter speed of 1/80000 second (1/16000 second during continuous shooting), the α9 III is a game changer for professional photography. (1) Pixel area (2) Hi-speed signal processing circuit (3) Image processing engine.

Blackout-free, 120 fps continuous shooting

The α9 III is defined by speed and accuracy, enabling it to capture decisive moments with ease. It's capable of shooting continuous bursts at up to 120 fps with full AF/AE tracking, all without viewfinder blackout, and its highly-advanced AI processing unit recognises subjects with astonishingly high precision and reliability.

Preserve split-second moments

At 1/80000 second, the maximum shutter speed of the α9 III makes it easy to capture fast-moving subjects in almost any situation. What's more, a compatible flash unit from Sony (such as the HVL-F60RM2 or HVL-F46RM) can synchronise at all shutter speeds, eliminating the steep, nonlinear drop-off in illumination that occurs with high-speed sync (HSS) and ensuring even illumination across the image.

Exmor RS image sensor with global shutter system

The new full-frame global shutter image sensor is equipped with 24.6 million effective pixels, a stacked CMOS architecture and integral memory. This offers high resolution, overwhelming speed, and simultaneous full-pixel readout, so even fast-moving subjects can be captured distortion-free. The sensor's stacked structure and advanced A/D conversion enable high-speed processing to proceed with minimal delay.

BIONZ XR™ image processing engine

With up to eight times more processing power than previous versions, the BIONZ XR image processing engine minimises processing latency while markedly boosting image processing power. The high volume of data generated by the newly developed Exmor RS™ image sensor can be processed in real time even while shooting continuous bursts at up to 120 fps.

This significantly improves image quality, from offering higher colour gradation and more realistic colour reproduction to reducing image noise. The camera can also capture high-quality 14-bit RAW images in all still shooting modes.

Composite RAW Shooting reduces noise

Composite RAW Shooting captures multiple images (4, 8, 16, or 32, selectable) which can then be merged using Sony's Imaging Edge Desktop™ computer application software to create full-resolution images with very low noise. This makes it possible to shoot wildlife at high shutter speeds or portraits in low light, achieving exceptionally high image quality with low noise, even at higher ISO settings.

What's more, when shooting at low sensitivity levels, the α9 III can take advantage of camera shake that occurs during handheld shooting and use Composite RAW to create images with reduced false colour and jaggies.

Advanced optical 5-axis image stabilisation

Shoot handheld with confidence. The α9 III is packed with a high-precision image stabilisation unit, advanced gyro sensors, and optimised image stabilisation algorithms to effectively detect and correct camera shake, offering 8.0-step stabilisation. This is further supported by compatible lenses with built-in image stabilisation and improved communication between the body and lenses, providing effective control for blur-free shooting even at telephoto focal lengths.

Blackout-free shooting

Enjoy an uninterrupted view through the blackout-free viewfinder, even during fast-paced continuous shooting — a game changer for shooting sports and other fast-moving subjects. What's more, the distracting time lag that is usually associated with EVF viewing has been reduced to a minimum, so that fleeting moments can be captured with confidence.

Up to 120 AF/AE tracking calculations per second

Let the camera keep track — the high-speed readout of the new image sensor enables the α9 III to make up to 120 AF/AE tracking calculations per second, twice that of its predecessor. AF tracks complex subject motions and predicts sudden movements with greater precision than ever before, while AE easily responds to sudden brightness variations. The α9 III continues to track even during continuous shooting, also contributing to greater precision.

Never miss a moment with Pre-Capture

Pre-Capture records the moments that occurred before the shutter was released. Settable from 0.005 to 1 second, it's available in any file format up to 120 fps with full AF/AE tracking. This makes it easier to capture split-second moments, such as images of birds taking flight, even if actual shutter release is a little late.

Flash sync at all shutter speeds

With a compatible flash unit from Sony (such as the HVL-F60RM2 or HVL-F46RM), the α9 III can perform full flash synchronisation right up to the maximum 1/80000 second shutter speed. This allows flash to be used for extra subject illumination when shooting outdoors in bright daylight with a high shutter speed, reducing the need for large lighting setups and vastly expanding creative shooting possibilities.

Uniquely flexible tilting monitor for enhanced shooting flexibility

The α9 III features a 4-axis multi-angle monitor that combines the utility of a conventional tilting monitor with side-opening vari-angle flexibility, allowing for unrestricted angle adjustment whether shooting vertically or horizontally. Slim, unobtrusive, and robust, the mechanism enables the monitor to be pulled away from the rear of the body and tilted upward by up to 98°, downward by up to 40°, and swung sideways by up to 180°.

The touch sensitive, 3.2 type LCD monitor is optimised for outdoor shooting, providing 2.1 million-dot resolution, a wide colour gamut and ample brightness for clear and easy viewing.
