The Ultimate Outdoor & Wildlife Camera LUMIX G9 - featuring Amazing Picture Quality and an 80-megapixel High Resolution Mode

09/05/2019

Highest picture quality in the history of LUMIX cameras

Advanced Body I.S. (Image Stabilizer) and Dual I.S.

Outstanding tracking performance and high-speed, high-precision AF

Panasonic is proud to introduce a new flagship Compact System Camera, the LUMIX G9 boasts outstanding mobility with ultra-high-speed response. Evolving from the GH5's high performance, the LUMIX G9 achieves the highest-ever image quality in photo shooting by elevating resolution, gradation and colour reproduction with its 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor without low-pass filter. A High Resolution mode is also added that provides stunning 80-megapixel equivalent images in JPEG /RAW formats in the camera. The Venus Engine renders high-precision yet natural images with its Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing.

The Body I.S. (Image Stabilizer) in the LUMIX G9 is dramatically improved, making it possible to use 6.5-stop[1] slower shutter speed. This is achieved by a more accurate calculation of shake in various shooting conditions, utilizing information of angular velocity and motion vector acquired not only from the gyro-sensor but also from the image sensor and accelerometer sensor.

Combining B.I.S. (Body Image Stabilizer, 5-axis) and O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer, 2-axis), the 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) 2[2] in the LUMIX G9 compensates for larger movements that were conventionally uncontrollable. Maximizing both O.I.S and B.I.S. is highly beneficial in telephoto shots and in adverse situations, such as at night or with one-handed shooting.

The 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 works for both photo and motion picture recording, including 4K video.

The high-speed, high-precision AF with Depth from Defocus (DFD) technology achieves the world's fastest[3] AF speed of 0.04 sec[4], which is the fastest in the industry[5]. With its high tracking performance, the LUMIX G9 never loses the target.

The LUMIX G9 also boasts the fastest-in-class[6] 20 fps (AFC) / 60 fps (AFS) in 20.3-megapixel full resolution to capture those unmissable moments. Complying with 6K/4K PHOTO, users can choose the most suitable burst shooting mode in addition to the regular consecutive shooting mode depending on the situation.

The LUMIX G9 has the largest-in-class[7] LVF (Live View Finder) with a stunningly high magnification ratio of approx.1.66x / 0.83x (35mm camera equivalent). No blackouts occur even in high-speed burst shooting[8]. Night mode and an AF Point Scope function are also integrated.

Adoption of OLED for the LVF achieves smooth display at 120 fps and high speed response with minimum lag of less than 0.005 sec as well as 10,000:1 high contrast for exceptional visibility.

To withstand heavy field use, the LUMIX G9 is constructed of a magnesium alloy full die-cast front / rear frame and is not only splash proof[9] and dustproof but also freezeproof down to -10 degrees centigrade.

The largest-in-class Status LCD on the top makes shooting even easier and more comfortable. For the rear monitor, a 3.0-inch free-angle LCD in 3:2 aspect with 1,040K-dot high resolution is equipped. The G9 has a double SD Memory Card slot, compatible with the high-speed, high-capacity UHS-II.

The LUMIX G9 includes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity to offer a more flexible shooting experience and instant image sharing with easy operation. Compatibility with Bluetooth 4.2 (called BLE: Bluetooth Low Energy) enables constant connection with a smartphone or tablet with minimum power consumption. For Wi-Fi, 5GHz (IEEE802.11ac) can be selected in addition to the conventional 2.4GHz (IEEE 802.11b/g/n) for an even more secure and stable connection.

The Panasonic LUMIX G9 will be available from January 2018 in three kit options;

Body Only (RRP: 1,499 / 1,729) M Kit Panasonic Lumix G9 & Panasonic 12-60mm Lens (RRP: 1,699/ 1,929) L Kit Panasonic Lumix G9 & LEICA 12-60mm Lens (RRP: 2,019 / 2,329)
