What is Sony A9 Blackout-free shooting?

From Sony:

Blackout-free shooting
Thanks to the non-mechanical electronic shutter system, you can observe the reality of what you’re shooting through the electronic viewfinder even during continuous shooting, without blackout interruption that typically occurs among optical viewfinders due to up-and-down mirror motion. Enhanced speed of the image sensor eliminates distracting EVF display lag in continuous shooting, so that you can compose images with natural comfort, like seeing scenes with your own eyes.

Check out Mr. Popescu achieved with the new Sony a6000 and continuous autofocus (AF-C) at 11 frames per second. We are amazed that the rear LCD had very minor black out. This camera is hard to resist.

Sony A6000 Replaces NEX-6

Hands On with the Sony A6000

Sony A6000 Available for Pre-order
Here is a quick look at the newly announce Sony A6000 camera. It replaces the Sony NEX-6 but keeps the same form factor. The big improvement is the 24 megapixel sensor up from 16 mp on the NEX-6. It also boasts the fastest AF for an APS-C mirrorless camera with focus lock in 0.06 seconds. The speed burst is bumped up to 11 fps. All this while keeping the same NEX-6 price for the A6000 body at $648.

The silver looks a bit like champagne and looks handsome with the black grip. This announcement has us excited for the NEX-7 replacement.

Sony NEX-5 7 Frames Per Second Burst Shooting

Davide C. emailed us to show how to use the Sony NEX-5's 7 frames per second burst shooting mode. He set the Drive Mode of the NEX-5 to Speed Priority Continuous and used Photoshops "load into stack" function to finish the image. The lens used was the Sony E-mount 16mm f/2.8 pancake - a guess from the EXIF.

He mentioned that the NEX-5 buffer fills up after 15 large JPEG shots, we were wondering if using a faster card like the Sony Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX would be a remedy. The shots turned out very well even with this minor setback.

This is what the shutter looks like at 7 frames per second burst.

This is the shutter release curtain of the Sony NEX-5. The NEX-5 can do burst shooting of 7 frames per second. Look at that shutter abuse. :D
