One of the impressive features of Sony a9 is its continuous shooting speed of 20fps. Sony and photographer Amar Ramesh decided to demonstrate the cameras continuous shooting performance in quite a creative way, so they created a video. The video that was made entirely out of stitched photos shot with the a9’s burst mode. Since 20fps is quite near the standard 24fps of video shooting, the result is really impressive.
One of the main selling points for the newly announced Sony A9 is its superior autofocus. The autofocus has 693 point wide-area phase-detection points and according to Sony, it can do up to 20fps with AF/AE tracking. Sounds impressive right?
If you were wondering what’s a 20 FPS auto-focusing beast is good for, watch this movie from Gary Fong. It shows a pole vaulter going the entire distance of the course while the camera keeps tack-sharp focus. Not only that, it does so being “fully opened” with a 70-200mm f2.8 GM lens.
