Introduction

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 is the companions’s newest mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (ILC), and in many ways, the first Lumix camera ever to be aimed squarely at professional and advanced lay stills photographers – and it shows.

But that doesn’t mean the G9 is light on video specs; Panasonic has long been a leader in ‘hybrid’ stills and video cameras with the evocative GH-series, but just as the GH-series leans slightly more to the video side of things, the G9 leans the other way.

Even though we’ve had only a few days with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel our G9, we’ve already seen betterments to the JPEG engine (color in particular), and been able to play around with some of its new features like the 80MP high-resolution mode, and been dynamited away by its incredibly large electronic viewfinder. Some of its capabilities – like impressive-looking 20 fps burst shooting with continuous autofocus – at ones desire need more in-depth testing.

But for now, we’ve put together some of our first impressions and takeaways – let’s get started.
