Sensor and Global Shutter
This is the headline feature of the Sony Alpha 9 III with the newly developed Exmor RS image sensor. It is the world’s first full-frame stacked 24.6 MP CMOS image sensor with a global shutter system. This is to say, this sensor exposes every pixel at the same time producing no distortion.
