Sony A9 performance during the International Champions Cup Singapore 2017
Internazionale vs Chelsea FC
Singapore National Stadium – 29 July 2017
Sony A9 has great features for Sport Photographer:
- High-speed continuous shooting at up to 20fps
- Blackout-free shooting
- Track the action with an uninterrupted view
- Silence Shooting
- Accurate AF
It’s an honour to me to be part of Sport Photographers that use Sony A9 with Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 GM OSS lens.
Special Thanks to Sony Singapore.
My setup for the match is:
- JPG Fine
- ISO 4000
- AF Tracking Sensitivity: 2
- Focus Area: Flexible Spot
Sony mentioned with they new sensor it make “Capture the previously uncatchable” and I admitted with these feature, I really amazed with the Accurate AF, it’s sticked and followed the player, and the mobility as I usually hand held for sport photography, this small body is really useful for me to capture any moment with difficult angle.
The photos are cropped but has not been edited, all the sharpness, colour, and lighting as was taken directly from Sony A9.
Sony A9’s sensitive tracking is amazing, and the 20 frames per second can really record all the movements.
Here are the images, you can see the AF accuracy and please note these photos has not been edited.
