Yes, the GX-9 has a silent mode that uses the electronic shutter and will mute beeps, turn the shutter volume off, disable the AF assist lamp, and set the flash to Forced Flash Off.

What is the remote shutter cable for GX9? I was told RSL1 is not compatible with the GX9.
Asked by: Felimon
The GX9 does not have a remote release capability that plugs into the camera. I haven't tried the bluetooth option. But then I use this camera more for travel and street photography. If use of a remote is important I use my G9 on a tripod. But that doesn't mean you can't take long exposures with this camera on a tripod. Just use the 2 sec self timer and be sure you have the shutter set to AUTO in the camera menu (first screen) so it will switch to the mechanical shutter automatically when it is needed without you having to think about it. With the great image stabilization you will be able to successfully hand hold at longer shutter speeds and with reasonable High ISO handling you will be able to push your times hand held even further. One other note... Like some other panasonic models, the GX9 has a tripod mount that is very far forward and it was a challenge to find a mounting plate that worked well. I use one similar to the Vello CG-GX9 Hand Grip which is arca-type compatible.

I currently have a GX8, which I love. My brother wants to buy a camera like mine except that Panasonic no longer sells the GX8. Is this GX9 an upgrade to the GX8. What are the differences?
Asked by: Tom
The GX9 is not the successor of the GX8. It is not weather sealed. The GX9 is really the replacement for the GX85.

Does it have a live composition and hd mode ?
Asked by: Samrat
It has live view boost, for aiding composition in poor lighting conditions. HD sounds like a video mode. I never use this.
