Sony's new flagship Alpha a9 camera

Techstination feature for Monday, May 8, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    When it comes to digital photography the folks at Sony are continuing to innovate, winning over not just everyday consumers but professional photographers as well.   The newly announced Alpha a9 flagship camera is filled with groundbreaking features…like black out free continuous shooting at up to 20 frames per second and a maximum shutter speed of 1/3200th of a second.  Breakthroughs that sports photographers will love and the ability to shoot in complete silence is a plus for nature photographers too.  Sony Electronics President Mike Fasulo…

“We actually listen to the customer.   And frankly that’s what we’ve done in the imaging category.”

The a9, arriving soon, carries a 45 hundred dollar price tag.   But expect to see some of the features migrating to other cameras in the Sony line up over time.
