Setting the new standard for Panasonic's Compact System Cameras, the Lumix GX9 features a 20.3 megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor with low-pass filter, ensuring the greatest details are captured and an optimised gradation setting provides wide dynamic range. With its compact body and high-end technology, the Lumix GX9 is an excellent companion for seekers of the authentic street-style picture.
Capture Authentic Moments with Speed and 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 les at a maximum 24fps. As a result, the Lumix GX9 achieves high-speed AF of approximately 0.07 seconds and high-speed burst shooting at 9fps (AF-S) and 6fps (AF-C) to capture fast-moving subjects in focus.
Angle-Adjustable Live Viewfinder
To help ensure the best shot is taken, the Lumix GX9 integrates a new LVF that tilts up to 80 degrees offering an extraordinary shooting style, especially for subjects below eye-level. The Live Viewfinder Eye Sensor AF starts autofocusing as soon as it is 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 equivalent) magnification and 100% field of view.
Large 3" Tiltable LCD
The new 3", 1240k-dot high-resolution touch monitor tilts up by 80 degrees and a down by 45 degrees, which enables shooting in either high or low angles easier. Live View Boost allows you to check the composition on the screen even in total darkness by boasting the sensitivity.
Perfect Shots On-the-Go
For greater precision, the Lumix GX9 incorporates 5-axis Dual Image Stabilisation for more effective suppression of blue. When combined with an OIS (Optical Image Stabiliser, 2-axis) and a BIS (Body Image Stabiliser, 5-axis), the 5-axis Dual IS 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 IS 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 and 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.
