The Panasonic G9 is a compact mirrorless camera designed for enthusiast photographers and videographers. Its 20.3 Megapixel sensor is designed to excel at capturing high quality photos and razor sharp 4K video, ensuring suitability for content creators, artists and the social media savvy.
Packed with cutting edge shooting features, the G9 is a popular choice for multimedia artists and serious enthusiasts. Its high resolution sensor and the inclusion of advanced 4K video recording will help cement its relevance for years to come.
With a significant resolution increase over the Lumix G85, the 20.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor in the G9 also eliminates the Anti-Aliasing Filter, resulting in better detail and improved colour accuracy for both photo and video recordings.
The updated sensor works in conjunction with the improved Venus Engine image processor to ensure you never miss another shooting opportunity. Delivering silky smooth 60fps video recording at its 4K resolution and lightning fast 20fps full resolution burst rate shooting with full AF or 60fps with fixed AF means no more excuses for missing that decisive moment.
High speed shooting is useless without the autofocus performance to back it up. The G9 Depth from Defocus AF system locks focus in as little as 0.04 seconds to ensure when you're utilising the high speed burst mode, all your shots are tack sharp with maximum detail.
The speed of the G9 is complemented with a high resolution EVF to ensure your framing is pixel perfect. It is ideal for sports, kids, wildlife and other subjects with unpredictable motion with thanks to its ultra-fast 120fps refresh rate and large 3.86 million pixel, 0.83x magnification viewfinder. A 1.04 million pixel LCD Touchscreen is housed at the rear for simple live view shooting. Mounted on an articulating hinge, its proven design offers versatility for high and low angle shooting, whilst the ability to flip forwards is perfect for shooting selfies and filming vlogs.
A DSLR style top plate LCD screen is an exciting improvement in the mirrorless segment. Allowing you to view your shot settings and exposure without using the EVF or rear LCD, it enables photographers to shoot from the hip, great for capturing candid memories and fleeting street scenes.
Built-in 5-axis image stabilisation with Dual I.S. 2 compatibility is useful in all photographic scenarios. Offering up to an amazing 6.5-stop exposure advantage means sharper photos and video, plus improved creative flexibility when shooting in challenging lighting conditions.
The Sensor Stabilisation technology has been re-purposed to allow the G9 to move its sensor with pixel perfect accuracy. This enables the camera to shoot a sequence of 8 overlapping images when mounted to a tripod to create an 80 megapixel ultra-high resolution file. The feature produces a highly detailed image with life like detail, accurate colour reproduction and an astonishing 10368 x 7776 resolution. Best of all, it does all the processing and stitching in-camera, allowing you to import the file into your favourite editor for further post-production work or print billboard sized images directly from your memory card.
A 6K Photo Mode will push your creative boundaries and empower you to capture split second moments with ease. With 6K Photo, the G9 allows you to record a 30fps video clip and choose the precise frame from which to extract an 18 megapixel still image. Great for action too fast for the human eye to appreciate, it opens up a whole realm of unique, creative possibilities.
Dual SD Card Slots offer convenience and peace of mind. With uncompromising speed UHS-II U3, the slots can be configured to suit your specific shooting requirements. Relay recording allows you to seamlessly record and hot swap memory cards, enabling you to take full advantage of the G9's unlimited video recording time. For professional photographers, the slots can also be configured to record to both cards simultaneously, creating an instant backup, or save RAW files to one slot and JPGs files to another.
The convenience of Bluetooth Low Energy functionality and an ultra-fast 802.11ac Wireless speed ensures a quick, hassle-free connection to your smartphone. Improve your creative potential and social reach by enabling remote shutter release, start/stop video recording and fast image transfer for immediate sharing to your Facebook or Instagram feed.
The professional magnesium camera body construction inspires confidence when shooting in the toughest environments. Its rigid design is coupled with weather sealing to resist dirt, dust and moisture equipping you with the right equipment to get the shots you need, even when the weather takes a turn. The sealing of the Panasonic Lumix DC- G9 also ensures the camera internals are frost resistant in temperatures up to -10°C.
