Manny Ortiz Tests the α9 at Kando Trip 1.0

Manny Ortiz, the popular YouTuber recently shared a video of his on-site testing of the new Sony α9 at Kando Trip 1.0 in California in May. Wanting to fully explore the α9's capabilities, Ortiz shot portraits outdoors and in low light in addition to shooting the action of sunrise surfing and skate ramp stars.

"All in all I think that the α9 has proved to be a great low-light performer."

"To be honest guys, I didn't baby this camera at all.... I have shot with it and I let the shutter run and I never filled up the buffer."

"Notice how well the α9 is tracking these surfers especially in this heavily backlight condition. Also notice how nice and sharp these photos are. Overall, I was just really impressed with the α9's performance."
