  • Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera (Body Only)

    Panasonic has taken a different approach to camera development with the stills-focused DC-G9 Micro Four Thirds Mirrorless Camera, which has a variety of newly developed functions and features that will appeal to photographers. Central to the imaging process is the combination of a 20.3MP Live MOS sensor and the latest Venus Engine processor, enabling the capture of sharp images and video with sensitivities ranging up to ISO 25600. Extremely fast speeds are also made available with up to 60 fps continuous shooting with the electronic shutter function. If you want to shoot video along with stills the G9 is very accommodating, offering UHD 4K at up to 60p.

    This improved speed is seen in many different aspects, including an enhanced Depth-from-Defocus autofocus system with 225 areas for fast, precise focusing across the frame. A rear joystick has been implemented as well for intuitive control over the current focus point. Another benefit of boosted processing is the inclusion of 6K PHOTO at 30 fps and 4K PHOTO at up to 60 fps, allowing users to capture 18MP or 8MP images, respectively, at exceptional frame rates. Beyond speed, the 5-axis sensor stabilization system supports Dual I.S. 2.0 and can compensate for up to six stops of camera shake. And a significant addition made possible with this new system is a multi-shot mode that captures eight separate images and compiles them into a single 80MP raw image.

    It isn't just performance that has been optimized, as the G9 has a redesigned body that is splash, dust, and freezeproof. The body gains a top status LCD for quick access to essential settings without needing to check the LCD or viewfinder, which have also been improved. Most notably, the OLED viewfinder is improved with a 0.83x magnification and 3.68m-dot resolution. The EVF has a fast 120 fps refresh rate as well for lag-free viewing. Additionally, the LCD is now a 3.0" 1.04m-dot free-angle touchscreen for working intuitively and at odd angles.

    20.3MP Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine
    Optimized for high-speed high-resolution imaging, the G9 packs in both a 20.3MP Light MOS Micro Four Thirds sensor and an enhanced Venus Engine processor to create sharp, detailed stills and UHD 4K video. This configuration maximizes resolution while keeping noise to a minimum, permitting the use of sensitivities up to ISO 25600. It is also very fast, enabling continuous shooting rates of up to 60 fps with AF-S and 20 fps with AF-C when using the G9's electronic shutter or 12 fps for AF-S and 9 fps for AF-C using the mechanical shutter.
    UHD 4K Video Recording
    Supplementing the camera's stellar stills feature set is UHD 4K video recording at up to 60p. The G9 offers internal recording with an 8-bit color depth and 4:2:0 sampling using Long GOP compression to keep files sizes manageable. Users also have access to various frame rates, including 60p, 30p, and 24p in UHD 4K and 60p and 24p in Full HD. Slow motion video is available in the Creative Video Mode with support for 60 and 48 fps resolution in UHD 4K and up to 180 fps in Full HD.

    In order to maximize image quality, the G9 features a full-size HDMI output for using an optional external recorder to receive 8-bit 4:2:2 footage at all resolutions up to UHD 4K at 30p. Also, both a 3.5mm headphone jack and 3.5mm microphone input are available for improving audio capture.
    6K and 4K PHOTO
    Utilizing the G9's video recording capabilities, a trio of still shooting modes are available for recording continuous 8MP stills at a 60 or 30 fps shooting rate or 18MP stills at a 30 fps shooting rate:
    • Burst: This mode will allow you to continuously record, making it ideal for instances where you need a fast frame rate in order to capture the best moment.
    • Pre-Burst: This mode is ideal for times when you're unsure of the critical moment to press the shutter button and will record images one second prior to and one second after pressing the shutter button in order to give you 60 frames to choose from.
    • Burst (S/S): This mode most closely follows the video recording process, and allows you to playback your video, pause at the chosen moment, and use the shutter button to mark a chosen frame from the video and save it as a single 8 or 18MP frame.
    Dual I.S. 2
    Helping to achieve the utmost sharpness when photographing handheld, Dual I.S. 2 combines the G9's sensor-shift image stabilization technology with lens-based image stabilization to compensate for a broader range of movement types to render sharper, clearer imagery. Dual I.S. 2 requires the use of compatible Lumix lenses featuring O.I.S. This stabilization system is able to compensate for approximately six stops of camera shake.
    Body Design and Built-In Wi-Fi
    • A large OLED Live View Finder has an impressive 3.86m-dot resolution and 0.83x magnification for eye-level composition. This viewfinder also has a maximum refresh rate of 120 fps for clear, lag-free imagery.
    • A larger means for image composition and playback, the 3.0" 1.04m-dot rear LCD monitor has a free angle, tilt and swivel design to support viewing from a variety of angles. It is also a touchscreen, which permits intuitive menu navigation and settings control.
    • A backlit top status LCD provides immediate access to current settings without needing to raise the camera to eye level.
    • Dual UHS-II SD card slots are present, which provides settings such as Relay Recording to automatically switch cards when one is full; Backup Recording, which records the same data to both cards simultaneously; and Allocation Recording, which lets you save certain files to each card for easier organization.
    • Constructed from magnesium alloy with a die-cast frame, the G9 features a durable design that also incorporates extensive sealing at each joint, dial, and button to render it both splash- and dust-proof as well as freezeproof to 14°F.
    • A joystick is available on the rear of the camera to make changing many settings easier and more intuitive, such as changing a focus point.
    • The sleek flat-body profile incorporates both front and rear dials for intuitive control over aperture and shutter speed settings. Multiple assignable function buttons are also available, including a function lever.
    • Built-in 5 GHz Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC and Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy allows for wireless image sharing and remote camera control from linked smartphones and tablets. Bluetooth LE also enables a constant connection to your mobile device, allowing for functions such as geolocation and automatic image transfer.
    225-Area Advanced Depth-From-Defocus AF System
    For accelerated autofocus performance, and Advanced DFD (Depth-From-Defocus) technology is employed to quickly calculate the distance to subjects and adjust the focusing position in as little as 0.04 seconds, which enables continuous shooting up to 20 fps with continuous AF. This contrast-detection type focus method benefits both still and video recording modes, as well as subject tracking applications where subject color, size, and motion vectors are used to intelligently lock-onto the moving subjects and ensure precise focus. The sensitivity and speed can be adjusted to further improve performance with certain subjects. It also features 225 AF areas, which provide excellent control over where the camera will focus. Additionally, supporting working in low-light conditions, a Starlight AF feature enables accurate AF performance down to -4 EV.

    Benefitting manual focus operation, focus peaking is available that highlights bright edges of contrast with a colored outline for quickly recognizing your focus point, as well as Touch MF Assist for touch-to-focus operation. Other AF features include an AF Point Scope setting that temporarily magnifies the subject by 3x to 10x for confirmation of the focus position and a custom selectable AF zone for Multi AF / Custom Multi AF.
    80MP High Resolution Mode
    By using sensor-shift stabilization technology the G9 can use a High Resolution Mode to capture and compile eight separate images to create a single 80MP raw file. This system creates a more highly detailed and color accurate image than a single shot alone can produce and can create an image with a 10368 x 7776 resolution.
    Other Camera Features
    • A mechanical focal plane shutter enables a fast maximum shutter speed of 1/8000 sec, as well as a top flash sync speed of 1/250 sec. An electronic shutter function also avails a top shutter speed of 1/32,000 sec to better enable working in bright conditions and with wider aperture settings. This shutter is rated for approximately 200,000 actuations.
    • A Night Mode will automatically adjust brightness of the EVF and LCD for comfortable viewing in low-light conditions.
    • An optional external USB power pack can be used to supply power to the camera via its micro-USB port.
    • Depending on the lens in use, the included DMW-BLF19 battery provides approximately 380 shots per charge when using the rear monitor, or 360 with the electronic viewfinder.

Panasonic DC-G9 Reviews

Lumix DC-G9 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera Body with Accessories Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel camera! I have used this camera mainly as a compact photo solution for not just travel but also wildlife. After a couple of firmware upgrades, the continuous AF has significantly improved but as the date  of this writing, CAF focus aquisition and occasionally tracking can be a challenge even though I am using Leica branded lumix lenses for birds in flight. However, with a hit rate of 70-80%, it serves my purpose. I do find that CAF functions slightly better in Olympus OMD em1 MII and Nikon D500 per my preliminary tests. However, when you nail the focus, the results are exquisite and no issues at all during street , land scapes and other photographic genre.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DC-G9 Features Win the Day Have to admit that I had reached a point of frustration yesterday. I was ready to contact B&H for a return. Reviews have stated that Panasonic's implementation of noise reduction is "heavy-handed". As the camera arrives in its default settings mode, I must agree. I have what I think are good, sharp, Panasonic lenses, but I was encountering a lot of difficulty in getting what looked like a well-detailed image. At the exact point of focus, things looked acceptable. Detail surrounding that point, for the most part, was disappointing. Zeal to smooth areas with lesser detail was giving a soft focus look to everything. Yesterday morning, I reviewed Menu Settings to see if I couldn't find some adjustment that might improve the situation. Photo Styles had exactly what I was looking for. I bumped Sharpness up 3 notches and Noise Reduction down 3 notches - Bammo! What a difference! Curiously, NR now smooths blues some and reds a lot less. The sensor is giving ME a look that I'm loving. My previously buttery-looking test images have taken a turn toward what I like to see in my images - great detail. You may say, "No, no, that's way too much or too little correction". I would say, "You have five increments in either direction. Find the one that suites you best". This camera probably has more features and adjustments than any other I've tried to date. I'm really grateful that Panasonic has provided Photo Style, and given the adjustments plenty of range. Two other items under the Photo Style menu selection are "Contrast" and "Saturation". They're worth exploring, but I haven't yet, so I won't comment on them. I'm sold on most other aspects of the camera: Size, shape, weight, general ergonomics, swivel rear touch screen, switches and buttons, viewfinder and adjustments to it, unfiltered sensor, accuracy of focus and color, dual memory card slots . . . my overall comment to Panasonic - Outstanding!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pretty decent in low light I recently took a video of a Piano Performance. The Hall and the stage was poorly lit and in addition to that I wasnt allow to use lights, so I had to bump up the iso. I was pleasantly surprised, the G9 was much better under low light than my old GH4.
