Speaking of the sensor of the a9 in its new review DxOmark says that the Sony a9’s sensor is “one of the best we’ve tested at base ISO, with consistently good scores for dynamic range and color depth, and exceptional results for noise.”
No wonder then, that we’ve been seeing many a professional choose this camera over other leading names in the market.
“At those crucial mid to high ISO sensitivities for action photographers, image quality is also excellent and on par with flagship Nikon and Canon sports DSLRs.” The camera’s ISO performance scored 3517, with Nikon’s D5 scoring 2434 and Canon 1D X Mark II scoring 3207…add to that features like an electronic shutter that goes up to 1/32000, 24.2 Megapixels, 20x faster readout times that leaves you with virtually blackout-free shooting…and you have a truly perfect camera for action photographers. For those who often shoot in low light, the ISO goes up to 204,800!
The a9 is truly set to create a new benchmark with its superior sensor and performance reviews so far…
