Just Announced Breakthrough Technology!
Sony a9 III announcement is blowing up the photography media channels because with the camera comes breakthrough technology — the World’s first full-frame mirrorless camera with a global shutter. What is a global shutter, you may ask? In the simplest terms it is when all sensor pixels are recorded simultaneously. Currently, all mirrorless camera shutters employ a rolling shutter. If you want to learn more about the difference between these two shutter technology check out Teledyne Photometrics’s informative article Rolling vs Global Shutter. With each pixel being read simultaneously, Sony’s new sensor gives a true “Snapshot” exposure mode through its “freeze frame” capture. This also means no mechanical shutter. Sony’s product news release summarize the benefit the best by stating it as captures all decisive moments with up to 120 frames per second high-speed shooting, distortion-free and blackout-free images, and flash sync at all shooting speeds.

This is especially true when the photographer half presses the shutter release button, which activates another cool new feature called Pre-Capture.
