The text below is Google Translated into English from “Fotosidan” in Sweden (Sweden´s biggest photo site)
"The Sony A9 III has a new 24 megapixel sensor that works as a global shutter. This means, among other things, that you can use flash with all shutter speeds.
A global shutter reads the entire sensor surface practically simultaneously and therefore causes no problems with movement offset (rolling shutter) or flash synchronization. This means an extremely fast data readout and thus also the possibility of super-short shutter speeds. The Sony A9 III can shoot at 1/80,000 second in single shot and 1/16,000 second in burst. The latter speed is also the limit for flash photography without HSS technology that throttles the effect.
A mechanical shutter is not needed and the camera can take 120 images/s with raw format. A loop function allows the camera to store raw files in the internal memory which are then saved to the memory card when the shutter is pressed. In this way, you can store moments that happened just before you had time to react."
Sony A9III and its 120 24Mpixel images a second might be the final speed test for an application like Photolab. I think we have had quite a few complaints already both with version 6 and version 7 that have stated that Photolab can take 2-3 seconds an image when walking through our images. Photolab is already now facing a challenge opening a folder with 500 to 1000 images. Take a five seconds sequence with A9 III and we will have 600 RAW images to handle.
Isn´t this a real game changer?? I can´t see anything else in the future than all present converters need to get much faster to cope with data flows like that.
