Sony A9 is here :-)

Dear Matt and Mar,

Continuously for the past many, many months I have been keeping my eye on all the rumours of the new mirrorless camera. Looking back, I probably one of the first few people to jump onto the very first NEX 5 (I remembered skipping lunch, and took a motorcycle taxi to the Sony shop, haa haa haa). Then when the A7 came out, I was also one of the first few who bought one.

CaptureThen the traction started for Sony globally, following the A7 came the A7S then the A7R, then a little time later came the A7ii and A7Sii and A7Rii, the in body 5 axis stabilisation almost made me jumped to the ii models, but I held back simply because the ii models came so soon after the original A7/S/R models.

I almost religiously carry my A7 with me during all of my free time, haa haa haa, so I do use the camera quite a bit, and I am seriously considering the A9, although the camera is definitely keyed towards ‘professional’, to me if a camera has an ethernet port, it is a professional camera, haa haa haa, not to mention the price, I have seen the number of around 4,500 USD flying around the internet, haa haa haa, wow that is expensive for a non professional :-)

I am going to wait a while though, at least 6 months, haa haa haa, for 2 things. Firstly as this thing has so many new tech. I am going to wait to see how it fairs in heavy real world usage (looking at Samsung Note 7 as an example), and secondly, hoping that the price might drop a little, haa haa haa.

  1. Nice post you have shared here about Sony A9 camera. It is very costly to buy all the accessories for your camera. If you are looking for rent, Hollywood Camera Rental provides you all the accessories at the affordable rates.
