Sony is preparing to introduce a new reportage mirrorless camera – the Sony A9 III, about which a lot of information has been published. At the moment, a number of sources have shown updated information about this expected new product.

It is reported that the Sony A9 III will have enhanced video capabilities. The camera will be able to record 8K at 60 fps. This will be possible thanks to a 44 MP CMOS sensor.

The second high frame rate shooting option is 4K 120fps, which will also be available on the Sony A9 III. The available sensitivity range will be ISO 50–102400. This is quite a high figure for a camera with a 44 megapixel matrix.

The sensor itself will be “completely new and multi-layered” – it will be the “fastest” camera among all Sony devices (meaning the possibility of burst shooting). This, by the way, has already been reported earlier. The source clarified that the Sony A9 III will be able to shoot photos continuously up to 60 frames per second.

The source separately clarifies that before releasing flagship cameras, the manufacturer often tests several prototypes at once. Therefore, it is likely that some of the characteristics in the production version of the Sony A9 III model will differ from what is currently being reported by insiders who have tested the camera.

It is reported that the Sony A9 III will have an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 3.7 million dots without blackout during continuous shooting. The camera will also receive fast hybrid eye autofocus in real time (759 phase detection points).

It is stated that the camera will receive a 5-axis image stabilization system (SteadyShot), as well as two slots for CFexpress memory cards of type A and SD. Images of the Sony A9 III camera have not yet been published. The price of the camera has not yet been disclosed.

Previously, the first movie camera with stabilization, autofocus and VND was announced – Sony Burano . The camera has received a number of advanced features, for example, support for shooting in ultra-high resolution 8.6K (8640×5760), dynamic range of 16 steps, an image stabilization system, built-in ND filters and the new XAVC H codec. The camera matrix has a resolution of 41.9 MP (effective).
