We looked at the release dates for new Sony digital cameras over the last 3 years, but couldn't see any clear pattern. In November 2017 seven new Sony cameras were released making it the biggest month that year for new Sony camera releases. January was the biggest month in 2016 for new Sony digital cameras, with 14 new Sony digital cameras released that month. In 2015 most new Sony cameras were released in June, with six new Sony cameras released that month.

How Fast Do Sony Digital Camera Prices Drop After Release?

Sony digital cameras tend to depreciate faster than most digital cameras. Most digital cameras drop in price by 0% in the first 6 months after release. New Sony digital cameras drop in price by an average of 1% in the first 6 months after they wer first released. That means a saving of £9 on a typical £807 new Sony camera if you wait 6 months before buying.

Manufacturer's Description

What only 9 can do

This mechanism-free camera can deliver a-class-above performance conventional mechanical SLRs have only sought. For example, this system realises a totally blackout-free viewfinder while conventional systems can only try to reduce blackout time. A high-speed, vibration-free, silent Anti.

Distortion shutter vastly extends the range of shooting situations while a mechanical system can only aim for lower vibration and quieter shutter release sound. 9 provides continuous tracking of moving subjects for foolproof AF/AE while traditional SLRs can only challenge such AF/AE performance improvements. Moreover, 9 allows its viewfinder to show not only images of the subject available on conventional systems but also the final image of a shot. Now, thanks to a new image sensor that superbly manages all these roles, you can surpass all expectation with 9.

High-speed continuous shooting at up to 20fps

Groundbreaking full-frame Exmor RS CMOS sensor and BIONZ X processor team up for 20fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking. Stunning high-speed performance and ample buffer let you capture the decisive moment.

Blackout-free shooting

Non-mechanical electronic shutter eliminates blackout with typical SLR mirror action. An uninterrupted view of the subject is available even during shutter release, with 60fps live-view capability and minimal display lag in continuous shooting.

(A) Blackout-free shooting (B) Shooting with blackout.

AF/AE calculations up to 60 times/sec.

Light directly reaches the image sensor without mechanical interruption. An ingenious fusion of mirrorless construction and new speed-enhancing technologies provides AF/AE at the full-frame focal plane.

Electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32000 sec.

Electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32000 sec. far surpass mechanical shutters for a new imaging expression. You can also maintain shallow depth of field without an ND filter, even under bright conditions.

How Big is the Sony Alpha A9?

The Sony Alpha A9 is 126.9mm wide and 95.6mm tall. It is 63mm deep and weighs 673g.
