Sony A9 Unboxing

June 04, 2017

 

This is (Kirsten) and Gary, I being Gary, (Kirsten) behind the cameras; and we’ve got the new Sony a9 right here, in the Michael’s Hire Department, and we’ve still got it locked!

So, let’s open this baby!

Okay, the lid is off.

Firstly, we have not one, but two figure-eight cables, an instruction card for the Sony Pro membership, more paper, Capture One Express, instructions for the actual camera, more instructions for the actual camera, even more instructions for the actual camera.

Obviously, this is going to be a very complicated camera!

So, now, (slowly, blissfully) - the a9 strap! Yes!

So, you can tell everybody which camera you have!

Now, but wait there’s more; the Sony charger, an interesting thing which I’m not quite sure what it is at the moment.

Now, are two figure-eight cables enough? I say, “No!” because you might travel. So, here’s one for Hong Kong, another one for England, one for China, and another one.

So, not one, not two, but six figure-eight cables.

But wait, there’s more!

Oh, my God, an adapter for USB, a battery, and a USB cable.

But, wait, there’s more!

Now, right at the bottom of the box, we have the white package in its own little sleeve…

The moment… the drumroll… the searing guitar solo… For the a9!

Now in Hire.
