Further enhancing its prowess, the Sony A9M3 offers enhanced data transfer speeds, doubling that of its predecessor, the A9M2. It utilizes 5GHz communication, ensuring rapid and stable transfers for news, sports photographers, and studios needing instant FTP transfers. Moreover, it features dual card slots supporting CFexpress Type A and UHS-II high-speed SD memory cards, providing professionals with versatility in storage options.
Sony’s Alpha 9 Mark 3 is designed meticulously, from its sensor innovation to its exterior, button layout, and menu functions, all tailored to meet the demands of professional photographers.
