Capture authentic moments with speed & precision
The Contrast AF System features Depth From Defocus (DFD) technology and excels in both speed and accuracy by exchanging a digital signal between the camera and the lens at a maximum 240 frames per second (fps). As a result, the Lumix GX9 achieves high-speed AF of approximately 0.07 sec and high-speed burst shooting at 9 fps (AFS) / 6 fps (AFC) to capture fast-moving subjects in-focus.
Angle-adjustable Live View Finder
To help ensure the best shot is taken, the Lumix GX9 integrates a new LVF (Live View Finder) that tilts up 80-degrees offering an extraordinary shooting style – especially for subjects below eye-level. The Live View Finder Eye Sensor AF starts auto focusing as soon as it’s in use to ensure no shooting opportunity is missed. With 2760K-dot equivalent high-resolution and almost 100% colour reproduction, this 16:9 Wide Screen LVF boasts 1.39x / 0.7x (35mm camera equiv.) magnification and 100% field of view.
Large 3.0-inch Tiltable LCD
The new 3.0-inch large, 1240K-dot high resolution touch monitor tilts up by 80-degrees and down by 45-degrees, which enables shooting in either high or low angles even easier. Live View Boost allows to check the composition on the screen even in total darkness by boosting the sensitivity.
Image Stabilisation – for perfect shots on the go
For greater precision, the Lumix GX9 incorporates 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabiliser) for more effective suppression of blur. Combining an O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser, 2-axis) and a B.I.S. (Body Image Stabiliser, 5-axis), the 5-axis Dual I.S. compensates for a larger range of movement, making it possible to use 4-stop slower shutter speed. Users can enjoy blur-free photo/video shooting from wide to tele, even in low-light situations. The 5-axis Dual I.S. works in both photo and motion picture recording including 4K video.
To further reduce motion blur, the Lumix GX9’s shutter unit incorporates an electromagnetic drive which reduces the risk of shutter shock by approximately 90%. For street photographers who need to minimise disrupting their subjects, the sound of the mechanical shutter is also reduced in volume. For further reduction in noise, Silent Mode switches the shutter from mechanical to electronic and turns all sound (AF, operation) off while suppressing the emission of the AF assist lamp and flash with just a single setting.
Sophisticated 4K Capabilities
With its high-speed signal readout and processing of the engine, the Lumix GX9 is capable of recording smooth, high-resolution 4K video in 3840x2160 at 30p / 25p(50Hz Area) or 24p in MP4. Taking advantage of 4K technology, users can also capture the fleeting photo opportunities at 30 fps in 8-megamixel equivalent resolution to save it as a 4K PHOTO.
For more intuitive control, an exposure dial has been included for quick change of exposure setting. A Focus lever has also been added to the back side of the camera enabling users to change between AFS (AFF), AFC and manual focus without diving into a menu.
Focus & aperture bracketing
For further creative freedom, Focus and Aperture Bracketing have been added. With Focus Bracketing, a maximum of 999 images can be shot with different focal distances. Aperture Bracketing lets users have multiple shots with different depth of field. Users can later choose the shot with the best focus level or most fitting depth of field characteristic. Sophisticated modes, such as Multi exposure and Time lapse shot/ stop motion animation are also available in the Lumix GX9.
The Lumix GX9 integrates Bluetooth and Wi-Fi® connectivity to offer a more flexible shooting experience and instant image sharing. Once the camera is connected to a smartphone or tablet installed with Panasonic's dedicated application software Panasonic Image App for iOS / Android, users can shoot, browse and share images remotely.
