Maybe you'll afford one of these :


Sony has released a variety of new accessories to compliment the new α9, including:

– NP-FZ100 Rechargeable Battery: High-capacity battery with approximately 2.2x the capacity of the NP-FW50 W-series battery. Supports InfoLITHIUM® technology, which makes it possible to view the remaining battery power as both a percentage display and five step icon on the camera’s LCD screen.

– VG-C3EM Vertical Grip: Provides same operation, handling and design as α9, doubles battery life and allows USB battery-charging via the camera body.

– NPA-MQZ1K Multi-Battery Adaptor Kit: External multi-battery adaptor kit capable of functioning as an external power supply for four Z series batteries and as a quick charger. Kit comes with two packs of NP-FZ100 rechargeable batteries.

– GP-X1EM Grip Extension: Grip extender with same look, feel and design as α9. Enables more solid hold on camera.

– FDA-EP18 Eyepiece Cup: Eye piece cup with locking mechanism

– BC-QZ1 Battery Charger: Quick-charging battery charger. Charges one new Z series battery in approximately 2.5 hours.

– PCK-LG1 Screen Protect Glass Sheet: Hard, shatterproof glass screen protector with anti-stain coating to prevent fingerprints. Compatible with touch operation and tilting LCD screen

Sony needs to be careful about high capacity batteries, because we ALL know what happened with Samsung when they pushed it to the limit

I saw the exuberance at DPR ... but I missed the part that it's only 24mp and not 42.

There will be whiners.

It's still a higher resolution and framerate than a 1Dx or D5 (and lower priced), which is its competitor. I think people are willing to trade off some resolution to get a 20 FPS framerate with AF and no blackout.

If I understood it right, only one of the 2 SD card slots supports UHS-II.

But it has a back-illuminated sensor.

Also interesting: Ethernet port for file transfer. Seems rather for the professional market....

I believe the camera that is all things to all men (and women) will never be made... But, I suspect you are sadly correct.

The good news is you can probably take them out by a simple button push (or two), so they could always replace them rather painlessly...

Since posting, I've already seen a couple of comments saying that 24mp is not enough. It's human nature to want it all.

You are correct, though that's because I saw DPR's writeup first ("It has twin UHS-II SD card slots") but the press release clearly says one slot does UHS-II. Apologies for repeating a mistake!

I always dreamed of being in Cologne when some big camera announcement comes out... However, I'm in Cologne, while the announcement is in NY.

Sounds like a great camera. Probably out of my league.
