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 (without Low Pass Filter) 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 ensures 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. The GX9’s trademark tilting Live View Finder (LVF) 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 (35mm camera equivalent). A Power Saving LVF feature extends battery life to up to 900 images per charge. 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 (AFF)/AFC and manual focus. Building on this foundation, other features designed to deliver performance and convenience include responsive and rapid autofocus at 0.07iii sec; versatile 4K Photo and Video; and Bluetooth Low Energy connection to smartphones.
