Panasonic Releases Impressive LUMIX DC-GX9 Camera For The Enthusiast

Panasonic say the newly-announced LUMIX DC-GX9 offers uncompromising style and performance in a form factor that’s ideal for mobile, candid street and travel shooting.

“The GX9 delivers the very best in LUMIX image quality with the same sensor as Panasonic’s flagship G9,” said Scott Mellish, Product Marketing Manager, Imaging at Panasonic.

The newest model in the classic ‘GX’ series of rangefinder-style cameras boasts incredible detail, outstanding low-light performance and impressive dynamic range, via Panasonic’s latest 20-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor and the high-precision Venus Engine processor.  

Panasonic’s 5-axis Dual I.S. technology combines 5-axis internal stabilisation with the optical image stabilisation in selected lenses. This advanced system ensure class-leading stabilisation from wide angle to telephoto, allowing shooters to leave their tripod at home and travel light, In addition, the electromagnetically-driven shutter system provides quiet, steady shooting.

To support intuitive control, the LUMIX GX9 introduces an exposure dial for quick change of exposure settings, and a focus lever for quick adjustment between AFS/AFC and manual focus.

Building on this foundation, other features designed to deliver performance and convenience include responsive and rapid autofocus at 0.07 sec; versatile 4K Photo and Video; and Bluetooth Low Energy connection to smartphones.

In addition, the GX9’s trademark tilting Live View Finder offers 2,760K-dot equivalent resolution for excellent clarity and sharpness when shooting. The 16:9 LVF tilts up by around 80 degrees and has a high magnification of 1.39x/0.7x. A power saving LVF feature extends battery life up to 900 images per charge.
