Sony has just launched its most expensive mirrorless camera in the 24.2-megapixel "Alpha A9." The camera is also the first to be equipped with the company's full-frame stacked CMOS sensor, which allows the camera to take pictures at a higher accuracy and is able to take fast pictures.

According to a report from Engadget, Sony's latest mirrorless camera is concentrating more on speed and not on the resolution as the 24.2-megapixel count is not that high compared to the company's other camera model. But when it comes to shooting RAW, full-frame images, it's faster than previous models.

The report said that Sony "Alpha A9" can shoot up to 241 RAW, full-frame images at 20 fps and this can be done due to a processing speed that's 20 times faster. The mirrorless camera also features an ultra-dense 693-point focal plane phase detection autofocus, which allows the camera to do 60 AF/AE tracking calculations per second, allowing for clearer pictures even when moving.

Though the "Alpha A9" doesn't have a high pixel count, the CMOS sensor allows it to take clearer and crisper pictures. Sony says the latest sensor allows the mirrorless camera to identify "complex erratic motion" at a higher accuracy, allowing for sharper images.

Wired reports that with the Sony "Alpha A9" having a mirrorless shutter, the speed can reach up to 1/32000 per second. It also has five-axis in-body image stabilization, which allows people to shoot great images even if they are hands are shaky whenever they use the camera.

The problem with the camera, though, is it doesn't come cheap as the body alone costs $4,500, which will ship to the U.S. on May 25. But for people who are looking to capture high-speed action with great accuracy and precision, the Sony "Alpha A9" is a worth it investment. Check out the video below for more on Sony's latest camera.
