Description

The LUMIX G9 achieves the highest image quality in the history of all LUMIX G Digital Single Lens Mirrorless cameras by elevating resolution, gradation and color reproduction with its 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor without low-pass filter and the high performance Venus Engine. The new High Resolution mode produces an 80-megapixel equivalent (10368 x 7776) images in JPEG /RAW formats in the camera.

Dramatically improved Body I.S. makes it possible to use 6.5-stop slower shutter speed*. Combining Body I.S. and Lens I.S., 5-axis Dual I.S. 2** compensates shake up to tele-end with its 6.5-stop compensation power*. *Based on the CIPA standard [Yaw/Pitch direction: Body I.S. – focusing distance f=60mm (35mm camera equivalent f=120mm) when H-ES12060 is used / 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 – focusing distance f=140mm (35mm camera equivalent f=280mm) when H-FS14140 is used] **5-axis Dual I.S. 2 works when attaching the lens that are compatible with it.

The high-speed, high-precision AF with DFD technology achieves AF speed of 0.04 sec*, which is the fastest in the industry**. The LUMIX G9 also boasts the fastest-in-class** 20 fps (AFC) / 60 fps (AFS) in 20.3-megapixel full resolution to capture those unmissable moments. Complying with 6K/4K PHOTO, you can choose the most suitable burst shooting mode depending on the situation. *In 1-Area AF, at wide-end with H-ES12060 (CIPA) in LVF120 fps setting. **As a Digital Single Lens Mirrorless camera, as of November 8, 2017.

The LUMIX G9 has the largest-in-class* LVF with a stunningly high magnification ratio of approx.1.66x / 0.83x (35mm camera equivalent) and 3,680K-dot high resolution. Adoption of OLED achieves smooth display at 120 fps and high speed response with minimum time lag. No blackout occurs even in high speed burst shooting, so as not to lose sight of the subject. The largest-in-class* Status LCD on the top makes shooting even easier and more comfortable. * As a Digital Single Lens Mirrorless camera, as of November 8, 2017.

To withstand heavy field use, the LUMIX G9 features splash*/dust/freezeproof design. Dual SD Memory Card slots compatible with UHS-II enables you choose the recording method from relay, backup or allocation. The LUMIX G9 also features power feeding via USB for extended shooting. *Splashproof is a term used to describe an extra level of protection this camera offers against exposure to a minimal amount of moisture, water or dust. Splashproof does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this camera is subjected to direct contact with water.

NOTE** About motion picture recording / 6K PHOTO/4K PHOTO recording – 6K PHOTO is a high speed burst shooting function that cuts a still image out of a 4:3 or 3:2 video footage with approx. 18-megapixel (approx. 6000 x 3000 effective pixel count) that the 6K image manages. – Use a card with SD Speed Class with “Class 4” or higher when recording motion pictures in [AVCHD] or [MP4(under 28Mbps)]. – Use a card with SD Speed Class with “UHS-I / UHS-II UHS Speed Class 3 (U3)” when recording motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K] [High Speed Video] or [6K PHOTO/4K PHOTO]. (SD speed class is the speed standard regarding continuous writing.) – Recording stops when the continuous recording time exceeds 10 minutes with [MP4] in [4K/60p] [4K/50p] [4K/High Speed Video] [6K PHOTO] [4K PHOTO/60fps]. – Recording stops when the continuous recording time exceeds 29 minutes and 59 seconds with [AVCHD] in [FHD] and [MP4] in [4K/30p] [4K/25p] [4K/24p] [FHD]. – MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K]: – When using an SDHC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately. – When using an SDXC memory card: You can record a motion picture in a single file. – MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [FHD]: – You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately. – When the ambient temperature is high or continuous recording is performed, the camera may stop the recording to protect itself. Wait until the camera cools down. *** For [4K/60p] [4K/50p] video output, use an HDMI2.0 cable that has the HDMI logo on it, and that is described as”4K compatible”. **** The camera may stop recording when used in lower or higher than recommended operating temperature: -10 to 40 degrees.
