Apparently, the rumors of the death of the Micro Four Thirds camera—rumors started, by the way, courtesy of the arrival of Panasonic's new full-frame DC-S1 and DC-S1R cameras—have been greatly exaggerated. Panasonic has just announced the new Lumix DC-G95 Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera, as well as an updated version of its popular G Vario 14-140mm f/3.5-5.6 II ASPH. POWER O.I.S. lens.

The Lumix DC-G95 (replacing the DMC-G85 mirrorless camera) rolls in featuring a 20.3MP Micro Four Thirds MOS sensor with no low-pass filter that shoots up to ISO 25600, a 3" touchscreen LCD, 4K video with pre-installed V-Log L, a microphone jack, and 4:2:2 8-bit HDMI output. Targeted at hybrid still and video photographers, as well as vloggers, the camera also packs 5-axis image stabilization that is a combination of a 2-axis optical image stabilization system and a 5-axis body stabilization system. The V-Log L is pre-installed in the G95 for wider dynamic range and easier color grading in the post-production process.

The Lumix G95 integrates an OLED LVF (Live View Finder) with 2.36m-dot resolution with approx. 1.48x / 0.74x (35mm camera equivalent) magnification capability. The G95 is ready for the elements with a front structure composed of a magnesium alloy and a die-cast front frame. Plus, the camera is dust and splash resistant.

Don’t overlook this camera. Sitting in the tank bag of my dirt bike motorcycle, it has held up to loads of off road bouncing. The Live Composite and Time Lapse are just some of the awesome features. It may be slightly larger than other M43 cameras but certainly smaller than the new G9II.
