An Ultra-real, 20.3MP Experience
Boasting the highest image quality that LUMIX has ever offered, the LUMIX G9 keeps it real — and then some! At every ambient light level, the 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor without low pass filter delivers intensely sharp image quality with an extremely wide dynamic range.
This camera offers incredible speed, operability, reliability, and durability — all concentrated in a compact body. When nature offers only a split second to get the perfect shot, the LUMIX G9 is the ideal partner. Designed with ultimate mobility, this is one camera you truly deserve to own.
Venus Engine Beauty
The marriage of an advanced Digital Live MOS sensor with the beautiful Venus Engine reproduces extraordinary colour detail and natural texture expression.
Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing render intense brightness and contrast. The Three-Dimensional Colour Control zings with rich colours from dark to bright shades and high-precision Multi Process NR makes your images pop even at high ISO sensitivity settings.
Got the Shakes? Eliminate Blur at Any Setting
It's difficult to handhold a camera at the best of times but don't fret, with the 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 (Image Stabiliser)* intelligent compensation comes to your aid. This is the equivalent to 6.5 doublings of exposure duration meaning you can use a 6.5-stop slower shutter speed up to tele-end. The LUMIX G9 eliminates shake in both body and lens even at the telephoto setting**. It also works in both photo and video recording, including 4K video.
Surprisingly Detailed 80MP RAW Recording
High Resolution mode is capable of 80-megapixel RAW recording. After shooting the 20.3-megapixel sensor 8 times, a single image is created.
