Introducing the LUMIX GX9!15th February 2018     By: Panasonic NZ

The Ultimate Compact Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Camera

Make the world your studio with the New LUMIX GX9

Panasonic is thrilled to introduce our new Digital Single Lens Mirrorless camera, the LUMIX GX9! Boasting high image quality the LUMIX GX9 enables users to shoot vibrant, true-to-life, high-quality images with high resolution, high contrast, and impressive colour reproduction. The 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor without low-pass filter attains the maximum performance of the lens and the Venus Engine renders high-precision yet natural images.

The LUMIX GX9 incorporates a 5-axis Dual I.S.(Image Stabilizer) for more effective suppression of blur. Combining an O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer, 2-axis) and a B.I.S. (Body Image Stabilizer, 5-axis), the 5-axis Dual I.S. compensates for a larger range of movement than ever before. Users can enjoy blur-free photo/video shooting from wide to tele, even in low light situations. Additionally, the LUMIX GX9 adopts an electromagnetic drive in the shutter unit. Shock caused by the movement of the shutter diaphragm is reduced by approximately 90% as compared to the LUMIX GX8, and the shutter sound is also minimized. This shock reduction enables users to release the mechanical shutter even in the situations where they previously had no choice but to use the electronic shutter.

The LUMIX GX9 integrates a new LVF (Live View Finder) that tilts up by approximately 80-degrees. With approximately 2760K-dot equivalent high resolution and 100% colour reproduction, this 16:9 Wide Screen LVF boasts approximately 1.39x / 0.7x (35mm camera equiv.) magnification and 100% field of view. The new 3.0-inch large, approximately 1240K-dot high resolution static-type touch monitor with 100% of field of view tilts up by 80-degrees and down by 45-degrees which enables shooting in either high or low angle even easier.

The Contrast AF System features DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology and excels in both speed and accuracy by exchanging digital signal between the camera and the lens at max. 240 fps*1, resulting in ultra-fast auto focusing of approximately 0.07 sec*2. A variety of extensive AF functions including Face/Eye Detection AF, Pinpoint AF, One-shot AF and advanced Low Light AF enhance usability to comply with wide-ranging shooting situations. Live View Boost is another practical feature that makes it possible to check the composition even in total darkness by boosting the sensitivity just for live view.

The LUMIX GX9 is capable of recording smooth, high-resolution 4K video in 3840x2160 at 30p / 25p(50Hz Area) 30p(60Hz Area) or 24p in MP4. Taking advantage of 4K technology, users can capture the fleeting photo opportunities at 30 fps in 8-megapixel equivalent resolution and save it as a 4K PHOTO. Auto Marking and Sequence Composition are newly added in addition to Post Focus, Focus Stacking, Light Composition and 4K Live Cropping to make 4K PHOTO even easier-to-use, in more creative ways.

The LUMIX GX9 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.

*1 Contrast AF with DFD Technology works only with Panasonic Micro Four Thirds lenses.*2 In AFS, at wide-end with H-FS14140 (CIPA).
