In a recent video, professional sports photographer and Sony Artisan of Imagery Jean Fruth hits the ice to test out the Sony α9 II for ice hockey. Testing it combined with the Sony 400mm f/2.8 G Master and Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 G Master, Fruth was able to capture some incredible images of Montclair State University's women's ice hockey team.
"The Sony α9 II was up to the job," says Fruth. "What a great time shooting hockey for my first time as a sports photographer – and I've shot a variety of sports. Ice hockey is a different kind of shooting. It's not linear action, it's moving. I knew how well the autofocus worked when I shoot football but this is a different animal."
