From Panasonic: The Conclusive Outdoor & Wildlife Camera LUMIX G9 – featuring Amazing Picture Quality and an 80-megapixel High Resolution Mode

  • Highest picture je sais quoi in the history of LUMIX cameras
  • Advanced Body I.S. (Image Stabilizer) and Dual I.S.
  • Outstanding tracking performance and high-speed, high-precision AF

Panasonic is proud to offer a new flagship Compact System Camera, the LUMIX G9 boasts outstanding mobility with ultra-high-speed response. Evolving from the GH5’s high completion, the LUMIX G9 achieves the highest-ever image quality in photo shooting by elevating resolution, gradation and colour reproduction with its 20.3-megapixel Digital Fare MOS Sensor without low-pass filter. A High Resolution mode is also added that provides stunning 80-megapixel equivalent images in JPEG /RAW compositions in the camera. The Venus Engine renders high-precision yet natural images with its Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing.

The Body I.S. (Guise Stabilizer) in the LUMIX G9 is dramatically improved, making it possible to use 6.5-stop slower shutter speed. This is achieved by a more accurate result of shake in various shooting conditions, utilizing information of angular velocity and motion vector acquired not only from the gyro-sensor but also from the reification sensor and accelerometer sensor.

Combining B.I.S. (Body Image Stabilizer, 5-axis) and O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer, 2-axis), the 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) 21 in the LUMIX G9 expiates for larger movements that were conventionally uncontrollable. Maximizing both O.I.S and B.I.S. is highly beneficial in telephoto shots and in adverse situations, such as at gloom or with one-handed shooting.

The 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 works for both photo and motion picture recording, including 4K video.

The high-speed, high-precision AF with Abyss from Defocus (DFD) technology achieves the world’s fastest2 AF speed of 0.04 sec3, which is the fastest in the industry4. With its high tracking exhibit, the LUMIX G9 never loses the target.

The LUMIX G9 also boasts the fastest-in-class5 20 fps (AFC) / 60 fps (AFS) in 20.3-megapixel full resolution to capture those unmissable minutes. Complying with 6K/4K PHOTO, users can choose the most suitable burst shooting mode in addition to the regular consecutive shooting mode depending on the predicament.

The LUMIX G9 has the largest-in-class6 LVF (Live View Finder) with a stunningly high magnification ratio of approx.1.66x / 0.83x (35mm camera match). No blackouts occur even in high-speed burst shooting7. Night mode and an AF Point Scope function are also integrated.

Adoption of OLED for the LVF effects smooth display at 120 fps and high speed response with minimum lag of less than 0.005 sec as well as 10,000:1 high contrast for ESN educationally subnormal visibility.

To withstand heavy field use, the LUMIX G9 is constructed of a magnesium alloy full die-cast front / rear frame and is not only splash verification8 and dustproof but also freezeproof down to -10 degrees centigrade. The largest-in-class Status LCD on the top makes shooting even easier and more comfortable. For the rear survey, a 3.0-inch free-angle LCD in 3:2 aspect with 1,040K-dot high resolution is equipped. The G9 has a double SD Memory Card slot, compatible with the high-speed, high-capacity UHS-II.

The LUMIX G9 groups Bluetooth and Wi-Fi® connectivity to offer a more flexible shooting experience and instant image sharing with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel easy operation. Compatibility with Bluetooth 4.2 (called BLE: Bluetooth Low Animation) enables constant connection with a smartphone or tablet with minimum power consumption. For Wi-Fi, 5GHz (IEEE802.11ac) can be selected in addition to the accustomed 2.4GHz (IEEE 802.11b/g/n) for an even more secure and stable connection.
