Panasonic Lumix G9 Mirrorless Camera with Lumix G 12-60mm F/2.8-4.0 Lens (Panasonic DC-G9L ) Panasonic has taken a different approach to camera development with the stills-focused DC-G9 Micro Four Thirds Mirrorless Camera, which has plenty of newly developed functions and features as a way to appeal to photographers.
Central to the imaging process is the combination of a 20.3MP Live MOS sensor and the latest Venus Engine processor, enabling the capture of sharp images and video with sensitivities ranging up to ISO 25600.
Extremely fast speeds are also made available with up to 60 fps continuous shooting with the electronic shutter function. If you wish to shoot video in conjunction with stills the G9 is very accommodating, offering UHD 4K at up to 60p.
This improved speed is seen in many different aspects, including an enhanced Depth-from-Defocus autofocus system with 225 areas for fast, precise focusing across the frame.
A rear joystick has been implemented as well for intuitive keep an eye on over the current focus point. Another benefit of boosted processing is the inclusion of 6K PHOTO at 30 fps and 4K PHOTO at up to 60 fps, allowing users to capture 18MP or 8MP images, respectively, at exceptional frame rates.
Beyond speed, the 5-axis sensor stabilization system supports Dual I.S. 2.0 and can compensate for up to six stops of camera shake. And a significant addition made conceivable with this new system is a multi-shot mode that captures eight separate images and compiles them into a single 80MP raw image.
It is not just performance that has been optimized, as the G9 has a redesigned body that is splash, dust, and freezeproof. The body gains a top status LCD for quick access to essential settings without needing to check the LCD or viewfinder, which have also been improved.
Most notably, the OLED viewfinder is improved with a 0.83x magnification and 3.68m-dot resolution. The EVF has a fast 120 fps refresh rate as w
20.3MP Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine . Optimized for high-speed high-resolution imaging, the G9 packs in both a 20.3MP Light MOS Micro Four Thirds sensor and an enhanced Venus Engine processor to create sharp, detailed stills and UHD 4K video.
UHD 4K Video Recording. Supplementing the camera’s stellar stills feature set is UHD 4K video recording at up to 60p. The G9 offers 30p internal recording with a 10-bit color depth and 4:2:2 sampling the use of Long GOP compression to keep files sizes manageable.
With a view to maximize image quality, the G9 features a full-size HDMI output for the use of an optional external recorder to receive 10-bit 4:2:2 footage at all resolutions up to UHD 4K at 60p. Also, both a 3.5mm headphone jack and 3.5mm microphone input are available for bettering audio capture. 6K and 4K PHOTO
Dual I.S. 2 combines the G9’s sensor-shift image stabilization technology with lens-based image stabilization to compensate for a broader range of movement types to render sharper, clearer imagery.
A large OLED Live View Finder has an impressive 3.86m-dot resolution and 0.83x magnification for eye-level composition. This viewfinder also has a maximum refresh rate of 120 fps for clear, lag-free imagery.
