Sony A9 1080P 60fps video quality

Hi all,

I'm about to purchase an A9. I also have an A7RIII and an A6000. When it comes to video quality I've read and also experienced first hand, that A6000 has the sharpest 1080P 60fps video quality compared to A6300, A6500 (had it but sold it), and even the A6600.

I mainly work with 1080P 60fps so I would like to know if the A9 is on par or better than the A6000 compared to the 1080p 60fps video output. Shooting in 4K 30fps and then downscaling to 1080P wouldn't work for me because I want 60fps and for the time being an A7SIII or similar is way out of my budget.

If the A9 is equally good, then I would be selling the last of my APS-C gear along with the A6000. The plan is to slowly move all my gear to Full Frame.

Thanks in advance for any answers.

Unfortunately, 1080p modes including 60fps on the A9 are all line-skipped. They are quite soft and noisy compared with the 4k modes, which are downscaled.

Whether or not it's on par with the A6000, I couldn't tell you.

Bummer! It's ok, at some point (probably next year) I will get an A7SIII for that sweet 4K 60fps. Thanks for the answer.
