The Panasonic G9 is one of the most well-balanced Micro Four Thirds camera to date. Capable of super fast burst speeds, with reliable AF as well as good-looking 4K, this camera can easily handle double duty.
Just about any photographer craving a camera that can handle both high-speed still photography and 4K/HD-video duty. Anyone seeking complete control of their camera.
Serious sports and action shooters, who would be better suited buying a camera with phase detect AF.
Panasonic's mirrorless Lumix DC-G9 camera boasts some head-turning specs, including 60fps Raw image capture, but we'll have to see if its real-world performance lives up to its promise.
Shoots at 60fps in Raw format., Tracks subjects at 20fps., 20MP sensor with 80MP high-resolution mode., EVF with 0.83x magnification., 4K video at 60fps., Vari-angle touch LCD., Rugged, dust- and splash-resistant body., Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Video not as robust as GH5., High-resolution capture requires tripod and static subject.
While the GH5 is largely known as a video camera, it’s also a very capable stills camera. The fact that the Panasonic Lumix G9 has the same sensor and processing engine, but has been tuned for stills rather than video is, therefore, good news for photographers.
Compact weather-sealed body, Stabilisation system rated at 6.5EV, High-quality EVF and screen
Sub-full-frame sensor, Awkwardly positioned joystick controller, 400-shot battery life in standard mode
The G9 is unquestionably one of the company's most capable Micro Four Thirds cameras to date. It's more substantial in the hands than the company's non-video-focused models, and more significant a departure from the likes of the G7 than its name suggests.
20/60fps continuous shooting, 4K UHD video with 10-bit capture, Fast and effective autofocus
Some viewfinder lag in burst mode, Smaller sensor than most rivals, Lacks DSLR battery life
The Lumix G9 is a confident high-performance camera that's a joy to use. The tough weatherproof body feels great in your hands with excellent controls, there's an enormous viewfinder image, a fully-articulated touchscreen with an excellent user interface, fast autofocus and burst shooting that can...
The Panasonic Lumix G9 is a unique camera that delivers all the features one could want in a state-of-the-art mirrorless camera, and then some. It delivers impressive speed in both autofocus acquisition time and especially in its framing rates for both JPEG and Raw images.
“The Lumix G9 is the new benchmark for Micro Four Thirds.”
The company’s flagship stills model, the G9 is a Micro Four Thirds with a whole lot of punch. With a 20.3MP sensor, and powered by the trusty Venus processing engine, it’s capable of shooting at 20fps, blackout free in continuous autofocus, or a massive 60fps with the focus set.
Excellent image quality, 60fps shooting, polished handling and a wealth of advanced features add up to make the Lumix G9 a brilliant all-round mirrorless camera and Panasonic's best mirrorless camera to date.
6.5-stop image stabilization, Up to 60fps burst shooting, Large viewfinder, Great grip and handling, Dual UHS-II card slots
ISO range could be broader, Reduced screen size compared to GH5, Battery level not shown as a percentage
Overall, we consider the G9 the best camera Panasonic has made so far, particularly for enthusiast photographers who are mainly interested in shooting stills but also like to take high-resolution movies occasionally. It’s also the best-equipped M4/3 camera on the current market.
After getting into Photography with an entry Nikon d3300 I decided to do some research in to getting a decent upgrade. As someone who's fortunate enough to travel the world a lot with my job and the ever increasing demands of Airlines to keep weight down i decided to take the plunge with the Lumix...
This compact micro 4/3 camera offers 20 megapixels, 5-axis stabilization, 3" LCD, and electronic viewfinder along with access to the massive lens system of micro 4/3 that includes manufacturers such as Olympus, Panasonic (many using Leica designs), Sigma, and more.
The Panasonic Lumix G9 was a game changer for me. It has tons of features that you can find in the stats and specs. In this review, I would like to go over the main features that made it a game changing camera for me. IBIS, AF, Low light.
I have been using the G9 for a few days now and here are my first impressions. First, it's big. DSLR big. I would really like it to be a lot smaller. To me, size is one of m43 biggest advantages against other formats. But I knew it was big before buying it.
Is that once you've used one everything just feels a bit pedestrian afterwards. So here's my take on it, and for the TLDR crowd - "The best camera I've ever owned". Stick around and I'll explain why.
The vast number of features and it's great video capability and quality
Paired with a quality lens, the Panasonic G9 give results equal to and better than many greatly more expensive cameras. I own four G9s, one GH5, and one GH5 MK2 and each is paired with good quality prime & zoom lenses. I am a wedding & portrait photographer and my results have
On the G9, I would like to be able to lock down speed settings as you can inadvertently change speed during a photoshoot.
