Sony refreshes its Alpha series with the new α9 II
Sony has announced the newest addition to its Alpha flagship camera series: the α9 II.
The new model carries specs similar to the older iteration. It has the same 24MP sensor, 20fps continuous shooting, and 693 phase detection AF points.
The few tweaks made to this upgrade include an updated Bionz X processor, making the α9 II faster than the already speedy α9. It also improves the camera’s autofocus speed and accuracy.
In addition, there’s a new button setup, a sturdier body, 5.5-stop in-body stabilization, and improved dust- and water-resistance.
The new model now has an Ethernet adapter, USB Type C, voice memo functions, FTP transfer, and two SD card slots.
With these changes, the α9 II will fetch a whopping $4,500 price tag (body only).
