The Sony Alpha 9 III significantly improves human eye recognition performance with Real-time Eye AF and Real-time Tracking. These features automatically recognize, track, and focus on the eyes of a specified subject.

The maximum shutter speed is 1/8000 of a second, and for continuous shooting, it is 1/16000 of a second. When a compatible Sony flash is attached, it is possible to synchronize the flash and take pictures at all shutter speeds up to 1/8000 of a second. When shooting stills or movies under LED lighting, the High-Frequency Flicker function can significantly reduce flicker problems by finely adjusting the shutter speed to match the monitored flicker frequency in real time. Sony’s pre-burst feature captures moments for 1 second before the shutter button is pressed, significantly reducing the chances of missing any desired shots.
