A Detailed Review of the Sony a9 III Mirrorless Camera

The Sony a9 III, boasting the world's first full frame global shutter sensor, is a groundbreaking advancement in photography, offering the unprecedented ability to capture 120 raw 24-megapixel full frame photos per second. This feature alone sets a new standard for photographers specializing in fast-paced fields like sports and wildlife, where missing a moment is not an option.

Coming to you from Jake Sloan, this informative video review looks into the capabilities and performance of the Sony a9 III mirrorless camera. Sloan provides an unbiased look at this camera's potential. Key highlights include its incredible 120 frames per second shooting capacity and the remarkable eight stops of image stabilization, ideal for handheld shots, along, of course, with that global shutter. The AI autofocus system, a hallmark of Sony's recent cameras, demonstrates exceptional accuracy and speed, essential for capturing fast-moving subjects with precision.

However, Sloan notes some limitations, such as the buffer filling up quickly at 120 frames per second, though this is mitigated by CF Express type A cards. Despite this, the a93 III's prowess in capturing crucial moments with stunning clarity is undisputed. The camera's adaptability in various shooting scenarios, from the serene landscapes of Alaska to the dynamic environment of helicopter-based photography, showcases its versatility. Sloan also tests the a9 III's dynamic range, noting a slight compromise due to the global shutter, but finding it practically unproblematic in most shooting conditions. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Sloan.

I already hate culling sequences at 10fps :-(

Yeah, I shoot at the slowest speed unless it's mission critical. At 10fps, coming home with over 2500 images in a 2-3 hour shoot got old real quick.
