Sony a9 Vs Fuji XT2 – What Scenario Is What Camera Best For?

Sony a9

Fuji XT2

The Sony a9 is truly a great all-around camera. It’s great for both taking pictures and recording videos. The main reason why people get Fuji products is because of how affordable they are. That, on its own, is a hell of a scenario where this camera trumps the Sony a9.
For still photography, this camera comes with a 24-megapixel full-frame sensor. Apart from a wider field of view, a full-frame sensor also allows for more light sensitivity in the camera.  

The 24-megapixel sensor makes it great for printing photos. The more megapixels you have, the larger the prints you can make of that picture, without reducing its quality.
The Sony a9 costs about three times what the Fuji XT2 costs. From that alone, you can see that the singular fact that the Fuji XT2 is good enough to be compared to a camera that costs thrice its price, is a huge achievement.  

So, if you’re on a tight budget, you might not need to read the rest of this article. You can call the Fuji XT2 the budget king.
Furthermore, the camera has RAW support, which means that you get to save your images in their best quality. Moving away from the budget, another part where the Fuji XT2 trumps the Sony a9 is in shooting creativity.
For videos, this camera shoots 20 frames per second. However, it has a burst speed of up to 120 frames per second, to record high-speed video.  

With this, this camera will definitely work well with normal-paced videos, as well as, action-packed, fast-paced videos.
The Fuji XT2 has a time-lapse recording feature, which provides you with a creative way to capture your videos.  

We’ll talk more about time-lapses later in this article.
As if that’s not enough, peripherals like a microphone and headphone port, and an articulating screen, also help to create the best quality videos possible. The last scenario where this camera is better is in ease of use. It’s lightweight and it’s portable. It doesn’t have a touchscreen, but it keeps most of its settings around the body of the camera using buttons and dials.  

So, most of the time, you don’t even need the screen to get to most settings.

Sony a9 Vs Fuji XT2 – Features Common To Both Cameras

In this section of this Sony a9 Vs Fuji XT2 comparison article, we would be looking at all the features that both of these cameras come with. Looking at the fact that both of these cameras are mirrorless, there are going to be quite a number of these.

So, without further ado, let’s get into the common features!

Wireless Connection

Both of these cameras come with wireless connectivity. In this day and age, having wireless connectivity is very important. Maybe a few years ago we would have said otherwise. However, looking at how digital the world is today, it is very important.

The first reason why it is important is “ease”. With a wireless connection, it’s easy to connect to and transfer files from your camera to other devices. You won’t need to move any SD cards, connect any wires, or bother yourself with all those stuff.

Another reason why it’s good is “the internet”. The internet has become a very integral part of our lives. Both for communication, as well as for storage of files. In this age, most of your audience is online. With an internet connection on your camera, you would be able to get to them faster, straight from the camera.

Apart from that, you’ll also be able to back-up your files to the cloud for safe keeping. Backing up your files to the cloud will protect you from losing them if your SD card ever gets corrupted or lost in any way.

Articulating Screen

If you’re going to be shooting videos with your camera, this is one feature that might look small but will have a great influence as to how fluid your shooting is. Without an articulating screen, it’ll be difficult to shoot with your camera from certain angles.

There are certain angles where you would need to shoot from where it would be difficult to use your viewfinder. This is when the articulating screen becomes most important. With an articulating screen, you can easily bend it towards different angles, and use it to keep framing, while you’re videoing.

This is possible because the LCD screen is connected to the camera using a pivot. This pivot is what makes the LCD screen flexible enough to tilt. One thing we have to mention, though, is that this is not a “selfie-friendly” screen. That basically means that it’s not fully articulated.

RAW Support

Both of these cameras allow you to save your pictures in their RAW format. The RAW image format is similar to JPEG, only because they’re both image saving formats. In quality, they’re very different, RAW being miles ahead of JPEG. We’ll explain.

All digital cameras initially take photos in RAW format. However, some cameras do not let you save this format. So, before saving the image, it first goes through a series of processes, including editing, processing, and compressing, before the file is then saved in JPEG.

This process reduces the quality of the image greatly, which is why many photographers prefer shooting RAW. With RAW photos, you get the uncompressed, unedited versions that are of the highest quality.

One thing you must note with RAW photos, though, is that they are very large. So, if you’re going to be shooting RAW, make sure you have enough storage space on your SD card.

Face Detection Focus

This is probably the most underrated feature in a camera. Most times it’s forgotten under the radar and you don’t notice it until it’s not there. With face detection focus, anytime a face is in the frame of the camera, it is automatically detected and focused on.

Think about shooting a video of yourself, or taking a lot of portrait photos. This feature is very simple and basic, but also very useful.

Microphone And Headphone Port

We grouped these two cameras because they are intertwined in a lot of ways. Obviously, the ports are for connecting the corresponding devices to your camera.

With an external microphone, you get great quality audio straight into your video recordings made by your camera. This is great, looking at the fact that most built-in microphones that come with cameras are not any good.

The headphone is used to listen to audio that is either being recorded or has already been recorded. With this, you can monitor the audio that your microphone is recording, right as it’s being recorded.

Environmental Sealing

If you’re going to be doing a lot of shooting outdoors, this is definitely one feature you would love. With an environmental sealing feature, your camera is protected from the elements.

This sealing features protection from both moisture and dust. With this, you can easily keep on shooting, even if it starts to rain, or it gets a little windy, without having to worry too much about your camera.

One thing you must not forget though is that neither of these cameras is water-resistant, or waterproof. So, do not submerge either of these cameras in the water, and don’t leave them out if the showers of rain turn into bucket-loads of rain.

External Flash Shoe And Flash Sync Port

Both of these features are necessary for low-light photography. They have to do with attaching lighting peripherals to your camera, as the need arises.

The external flash shoe allows you to connect an on-camera flash to your camera through a small pocket called the “shoe”.

The flash sync port is used when the on-camera flash does provide as much light as is needed for that particular scenario. With a flash sync port, you can connect your camera to an off-camera flash that syncs to your camera’s shutter.

Off-camera flashes are usually used for flash photography as they are a lot brighter than on-camera flashes. If you do red carpet events, magazine photoshoots, or anything that requires heavy lighting, you definitely want a camera with a flash sync port, just like these two.

2 Storage Slots

Most cameras come with a single storage slot. These two cameras- Sony a9 Vs Fuji XT2, come with 2. With 2 storage slots, you get more storage flexibility, as well as, potentially, double the storage size.

You can use secondary storage is two ways. The first is as a backup, while the second is as extra storage. Both of these are useful in different scenarios. For backup, there are certain important things you would need to shoot, things that you can’t afford to lose, say, a client’s wedding.

When you’re shooting those kinds of things, it would be wise for you to use the secondary storage as backup storage. That way, whatever you’re saving on the primary storage, gets saved on the secondary storage too. So, if by any chance one of them gets corrupted, you have the other one as a backup.

The second way is when you’re shooting a large volume of work. If you’re shooting large volumes of work, you definitely want as much storage space as you can possibly get. In this scenario, you can easily use the secondary storage as an extra storage space, such that, when the first storage space gets full, files start saving on the secondary storage.

UHS Memory Card Support

Still talking about memory cards, both of these cameras come with support for the use of Ultra-High Speed memory cards. Just like the name implies, an Ultra-High Speed memory card is a memory card that reads and transfers data in Ultra-High Speeds.

The good thing about UHS memory cards is that they also work on devices that don’t support them. The only difference is that on those devices, they’ll transfer data at normal speeds. So, if you’re worried about getting a UHS memory card when just your camera is supported, you need not worry.

They’re Both Mirrorless Cameras

We decided to put this particular similarity last to show you that apart from just being mirrorless cameras, both of these cameras are pretty similar.

In the last decade, mirrorless cameras have grown popular because of their sleek and portable design. Many people consider the smaller package with equal quality, efficiency, on the part of mirrorless cameras.

Furthermore, mirrorless cameras provide more value for money because it’s a lot more affordable to put together a mirrorless camera, than a DSLR camera. So, for little, you can find mirrorless cameras that have great quality, but the same cannot be said for DSLRs.

Just like we’ve mentioned, the biggest advantage mirrorless cameras have over DSLRs is their size and weight. However, surprisingly, these two cameras- Sony a9 Vs Fuji XT2, are not the lightest mirrorless cameras out there. Let’s explain why…

How Are Mirrorless Cameras So Lightweight?

Mirrorless cameras are lightweight because they don’t have any mirrorless inside them. Mirrors are pretty heavy and they are needed inside DSLRs to transfer light from the camera’s lens to the optical viewfinder.

With electronic viewfinders, all you need is a small electronic sensor to convert the light into a digital image. The weight of an electronic sensor is minute, compared to the weight of a mirror and pentaprism.

Apart from weighing lesser, mirrorless cameras are also smaller in size.  This reduction is size is what makes them more portable. It is also due to the fact that they don’t need as much space as DSLRs because they don’t need to fit in mirrors and pentaprisms inside their frame.

There is one downside to this, though. To make the camera as small as it can be, the size of the batteries in mirrorless cameras need to be reduced also. This means that generally, mirrorless cameras come with smaller batteries than DSLRs, which is one reason why they have inferior battery life.

Couple this with the fact that mirrorless cameras are very battery draining and you’ll see why they have very poor battery life. Looking at these two cameras- Sony a9 Vs Fuji XT2, the Sony a9 has a battery life of 650 shots, while the Fuji XT2 has a battery life of 340 shots. Although the Sony a9 is significantly better, it’s still inferior to equivalent DSLRs.

And the only reason why the Sony a9 has better battery life is that it features a bigger battery than most mirrorless cameras. As such, it also weighs heavier than most mirrorless cameras at 673g.

Electronic Viewfinders

We put this here be it is heavily related to being the mirrorless camera. If a mirrorless camera will come with a viewfinder, that viewfinder is an electronic viewfinder. In fact, it is one thing people use to differentiate a mirrorless camera from a DSLR.

The mirrorless camera has an electronic viewfinder, while the DSLR has an optical viewfinder (except for a few Sony DSLR cameras that feature a variant form of electronic viewfinders). Most times, when the argument between the two camera types pops up, the argument between the two viewfinders pop up alongside.

Electronic viewfinders show the photographer a digital image, while optical viewfinders show the photographer raw light.

Just like we mentioned earlier, mirrorless cameras use an electronic sensor to pass light from the lens to the viewfinder. Now, what this sensor does is it converts whatever light hits it into a digital image. This digital image is then passed on to a small display inside the camera, which is then seen by the electronic viewfinder.

The main benefit of this is that you see exactly how your image is going to end up. So, you get to see the changes you’re making to the image, live, even before the shutter button is clicked. Let’s say, for example, you increase the ISO.

Looking through your optical viewfinder, you can only measure how much light you want, using the light meter. You don’t get to see how bright or dark the image will end up to be until the picture is taken. On the other hand, with an electronic viewfinder, as you’re increasing and decreasing the ISO settings, you’ll be seeing the image get brighter and darker.

The only downside the electronic viewfinder has it that it is power-draining, while the optical viewfinder, does not need the power to function.

Sony a9 Vs Fuji XT2 – Unique Features

Alright! It’s time to get into the part we’re sure you’ve been waiting for. In this section of this Sony a9 Vs Fuji XT2 comparison article, we would be looking at all the features that either of these cameras comes with, that the other does not.

Let’s get into it!

Features Unique To The Sony a9

1. Built-in Image Stabilization

The Sony a9 comes with built-in image stabilization. This means that your videos will look stabilized, even if you don’t use an external image stabilizer, like a tripod stand, or a gimbal.

However, there is a limit to what in-camera image stabilization can do. You still definitely need to try your best to keep your hands as steady as possible.

If, for instance, you’re in a moving vehicle or anything like that where it’s difficult to keep your hands completely steady, this built-in image stabilization will ensure that your videos still come out looking stabilized. So, the lens is not affected by mild camera shakes.

2. Touchscreen

The LCD screen that this camera comes with is a touchscreen. With a touchscreen LCD screen, it’s a lot more intuitive and easier to navigate through the camera’s settings.

Furthermore, with a touchscreen feature, you can easily manually focus on any part of the frame. This is done simply by tapping the screen where you want the camera to be focused on.

3. NFC And Bluetooth Connection

The Fuji XT2 comes with the wireless connection, as we’ve mentioned earlier. However, it comes with the barest minimum wireless connection, no extra features.

This camera, the Sony a9, on the other hand, comes with these two great extra wireless connectivity features- NFC, otherwise known as Near Field Communication, and built-in Bluetooth connectivity.

Both of these different wireless connections are used to connect your camera to other devices, using different methods. NFC connection pairs with any compatible devices by placing them very close to each other.

Once they are paired, these two devices will automatically connect to each other when they are brought close to each other again. This is great for a smartphone as you won’t have to reconnect your smartphone every time you need to transfer files between the smartphone and your camera/

Bluetooth connectivity, on the other hand, is a lot broader. We’re sure you must have seen Bluetooth before because most technological devices being released today come with this feature built-in.

With Bluetooth connectivity, it’s a lot easier to transfer files. Also, you have a much wider range of devices to transfer files to looking at how many devices come with Bluetooth connectivity.

Features Unique To The Fuji XT2

1. Time-lapse Recording

We mentioned sometime earlier that the Fuji XT2 provides a unique and creative way to shoot and we mentioned that we would explain time-lapse in details, here is that explanation:

Basically, a time-lapse is a photography technique where a series of pictures are taken of a particular scene, over a long period of time. These videos are usually meant to show the passage of time, whether it’s “night to day”, plants growing, or simply an activity.

When these series of pictures are played together in one sequence, they usually show the passage of time as being a lot faster than it originally was, which is why it’s called a “time-lapse”. Because it appears that time is elapsing.

It’s a really cool technique to try out, and it’s great that you can do it with this camera, straight out of the box. Unfortunately, the Sony a9 does not offer you this feature.

2. In-camera Panorama

Another creative shooting style that the Sony a9 does not have. This camera, the Sony XT2, has the ability to create in-camera panoramas.

It does this by stitching multiple shots together to form one panoramic photo. Honestly, if you’re looking for creativity with your camera, the Fuji XT2 provides you with a whole load of options that you won’t find on the Sony a9.

Sony a9 Vs Fuji XT2 – What Do Other People Think About These Cameras?

Sony a9

Fuji XT2

People who had the budget to fund this purchase were really impressed with how well this camera works. The first reason why people love this camera is its portability. This doesn’t come as a surprise as that’s also the reason why a lot of people love other mirrorless cameras.
The first reason why a lot of people liked this camera is its autofocus speeds. If you’re a sports photographer, this is definitely something that would make you smile.     One photographer mentioned that the difference between the weight of this camera and an equivalent DSLR is not only noticeable but “dramatic”.  

This is a camera you can keep hanging from your neck for a very long time, without even feeling it.
Another reason is the “ergonomics”. This camera has a very sturdy grip and the weight is not too light, neither is it too heavy.  

It’s in that sweet spot, right at the middle, that makes it great for portability, as well as, still being able to balance out the bigger lenses needed for some types of photography.
Another reason why people love this camera is the articulating screen. One street photographer mentioned that the articulating screen made it easy to capture different shots on the street.  

That way, you get to capture more shots without actually having to worry about how people are looking at you.  
The user-friendly nature of this camera is also something that did not go unnoticed.  

The touchscreen feature makes it easy to navigate through the settings, and the articulating screen gives you good framing from different positions.  
The Fuji XT2 has a unique feature called “film simulation”. It basically makes your photos look and feel like they’ve just been shot with a film camera, which is super cool.  

You no longer have to waste time color editing and sometimes, you can even post the pictures straight out of the camera.
Finally, a lot of people commended the improved battery life on this camera. Although it’s not the best out there, if you’ve ever used a Sony camera in the past, you would know that this is a massive improvement. The tactile nature of this camera is another feature that was pointed out. Not just cause of its functionality, but also because it makes the camera look like a film camera, which apparently, is sexy.
