Sony has officially announces the a9 II (Pre-order at B&H Photo Video), which adds a host of features for the working professional, along with a refined design largely borrowed from the a7R IV.

The sports-oriented a9 II uses the same full-frame 24MP sensor as its predecessor, though its faster Bionz X processor improves AF speed and precision, along with EVF display response. It retains the same 693-point on-sensor PDAF system as the a9, but with new algorithms that improve subject tracking. The camera can still shoot at 20 fps with no blackout using the electronic shutter, and the burst speed using the mechanical shutter has risen to 10 fps. There’s also a new anti-flicker system when using the mechanical shutter, making it much more usable under artificial light.

The Sony A9 II will ship in the US and Europe in October 2019, priced at approximately $4500 / €5400 respectively. Press text can be found here. Product page at Sony UK. Image samples at SonyUK.

Sony Unveils the 47MP MFT Sensor that Can Shoot 8K/30p Video

Sony unveiled the details of a new 47MP MFT sensor that can shoot 8K video at 30fps.

Sony’s new IMX492 is a diagonal 23.1mm CMOS image sensor with a colour square pixel array. The multi-aspect sensor will capture 41-megapixel resolution in 4:3 mode or 35 megapixels in 17:9. The new Sony sensor records 8K video in 30p in 17:9 mode, and in 4:3 mode this drops to 25p.

The Sony IMX492 also offers 2.315μm pixel size for both the Bayer and Monochrome sensor version. No further details were provided as to availability and when we may start seeing it in cameras.

This kind of resolution for a MFT sensor is definitely huge and probably for high-end video-centric Micro Four Thirds system cameras. The new image sensor (model name IMX492LQJ) might actually show up in the successor to the Panasonic GH5S which could be named as Panasonic GH6 or the Olympus E-M1 III.
