A Look at the Remarkable New Sony a9 III Mirrorless Camera

The Sony a9 III is arguably the most important camera release of the last several years, and on paper, it looks incredibly capable. How does it hold up in practice, though? This excellent video takes a look at what you can expect. 

Coming to you from Mark Bennett's Camera Crisis, this great video review takes a look at the new Sony a9 III mirrorless camera. As the first ever full frame camera with a global shutter, the a9 III has enabled entirely new capabilities and possibilities. It comes with a nice array of features, including: 

  • World's first full frame mirrorless with global shutter sensor (24.6 MP), eliminating rolling shutter artifacts and enabling flash sync up to 1/80,000 s
  • Shoots raw continuously at up to 120 fps
  • Pre-Capture starts buffering images when shutter half pressed
  • Speed Boost instantly switches to faster continuous shooting speeds
  • High quality 4K video up to 60 fps, 4K 120 fps crop, 10-bit 4:2:2 internal
  • Refined body design with new C5 button, grip, and shutter button placement
  • Dual CFexpress Type A/SD card slots
  • USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 port
  • 3.2” touchscreen LCD, 0.9x 9.44m-dot EVF with 240 fps refresh
  • Built-in Ethernet
  • Optional vertical grip available
  • Voice memos, IPTC preset metadata, image burst grouping
  • Weather-sealing with shading curtain to protect sensor

Altogether, the a9 III looks quite amazing. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
