From Panasonic:

Capture small, authentic moments with speed, consideration and precision

The Set off AF System features Depth From Defocus (DFD) technology and excels in both speed and accuracy by exchanging a digital signal between the camera and the lens at a peak 240 frames per second (fps)[1]. As a result, the Lumix GX9 achieves high-speed AF of approximately 0.07 sec[2] and high-speed burst shooting at 9 fps (AFS) / 6 fps (AFC) to catching fast-moving subjects in-focus.

A variety of AF functions including Face/Eye Detection AF and the popular Pinpoint AF function enhance usability to comply with a wide-ranging of slip situations. The advanced Low Light AF makes it possible to set focus on the subject more precisely – even without the AF assist lamp in extremely low-lit predicaments down to -4EV.

To help ensure the best shot is taken, the Lumix GX9 integrates a new LVF (Live View Finder) that tilts up 80-degrees offering an astonishing shooting style – especially for subjects below eye-level. The Live View Finder Eye Sensor AF starts autofocusing as soon as it’s in use to assure no shooting opportunity is missed.  With 2760K-dot equivalent high-resolution and almost 100% colour reproduction, this 16:9 Astray Screen LVF boasts 1.39x / 0.7x (35mm camera equiv.) magnification and 100% field of view.

To save power, the camera includes a new drawn in which makes it automatically enter sleep mode at a designated time after detecting the eye is off the Viewfinder eye sensor saving battery whilst executing. A long battery life of approximately 900 images[3]  per battery charge is achieved with this power-saving LVF and users can straight away go back into shooting mode with a half-press of the shutter button.

The new 3.0-inch large, 1240K-dot high-resolution touch visual display unit tilts up by 80-degrees and down by 45-degrees, which enables shooting in either high or low angles even easier. Live View Boost allows to restraint the composition on the screen even in total darkness by boosting the sensitivity.


Image Stabilisation – for perfect shots on the go

For greater precision, the Lumix GX9 unites 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabiliser) for more effective suppression of blur. Combining an O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser, 2-axis) and a B.I.S. (Body Image Stabiliser, 5-axis), the 5-axis Dual I.S. rewards for a larger range of movement, making it possible to use 4-stop slower shutter speed[4]. Users can enjoy blur-free photo/video slay from wide to tele, even in low-light situations.

The 5-axis Dual I.S. works in both photo and motion picture recording including 4K video. Panasonic Lumix G Cameras camera is an optical instrument for recording or capturing images, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or furnish a wide variety of digital interchangeable lenses and most of them comply with this 5-axis dual I.S.

To further reduce motion hide, the Lumix GX9’s shutter unit incorporates an electromagnetic drive which reduces the risk of shutter shock by approximately 90%6. For street photographers who privation to minimise disrupting their subjects, the sound of the mechanical shutter is also reduced in volume. For further reduction in noise, Silent Mode shifts the shutter from mechanical to electronic and turns all sound (AF, operation) off while suppressing the emission of the AF assist lamp and flash with just a individual setting; perfect for special shooting occasions.


Sophisticated 4K Capabilities

With its high-speed signal readout and processing of the engine, the Lumix GX9 is talented of recording smooth, high-resolution 4K video in 3840×2160 25p(50Hz Area) or 24p in MP4.

Taking advantage of 4K technology, users can also capture the fleeting photo times at 30 fps in 8-megapixel equivalent resolution to save it as a 4K PHOTO.

Choosing the best shot out of hundreds of frames is now easier with a new Auto Marking occupation. It allows the user to jump to a frame where the difference is obvious between consequent frames to minimise the time for choosing the best shot.

In withal, the Lumix GX9 incorporates Light Composition function as a new option of 4K PHOTO mode. The camera combines the images by choosing and saving the brighter pixel. This sign overs it possible to produce more dramatic images of situations such as fireworks or night scenery with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel ease.


Intuitive Creativity – put body details, new filter

For more intuitive control, an exposure dial has been included for quick change of exposure setting. A Focus lever has also been totaled to the back side of the camera enabling users to change between AFS (AFF), AFC and manual focus without diving into a menu.

For further creative candidness, Focus and Aperture Bracketing have been added. With Focus Bracketing, a maximum of 999 images can be shot with different convergent distances. Aperture Bracketing lets users have multiple shots with different depth of field. Users can later choose the crack with the best focus level or most fitting depth of field characteristic.

Also new to the Lumix GX9 is the option to shoot photos with and without originative filter options applied simultaneously. RAWs can be developed in the camera, allowing independence from access to a computer. Sophisticated modes, such as Multi-exposure and Timelapse whack/ stop-motion animation are also available in the Lumix GX9.
