Panasonic’s DC-G9 Micro Four Thirds Mirrorless Camera sees a variety of newly developed functions aimed squarely at the still photographers among us. Pivotal to the imaging process is the latest rendition of the Venus Engine imaging processor in tandem with a 20.3MP Live MOS sensor, producing crystal clear images and video with sensitivities of up to ISO 25600. Extremely fast speeds are also made available with up to 60 fps continuous shooting employing an electronic shutter function. If your want is to get video footage along with your stills the G9 will not disappoint, affording UHD 4K at up to 60p.
Speed is the order of the day. Enhancements can be observed throughout, including improved Depth-from-Defocus autofocusing utilising 225 points for fast, precise focusing across the frame. A joystick on the rear, positioned within easy reach of where your thumb naturally falls, gives intuitive fine control of the current focus point. The boosted processing power also allows for 6K PHOTO at 30fps and 4K PHOTO at up to 60 fps giving you 18MP or 8MP images at amazing frame rates. Over and above the speed advantages the 5-axis stabilisation system supports Dual I.S. 2.0 and can compensate for up to six and a half stops of camera shake. Another significant addition made possible by the new processing engine is the inclusion of a mega-resolution multi-shot mode that captures eight separate images and compiles them into a single 80MP raw image.
It’s not just the performance that’s been optimised, the G9 gets a redesigned body with splash, dust, and freeze proofing. A status LCD for quick and easy readout of essential settings without needing to check the LCD or viewfinder, which have also been improved. The OLED viewfinder is now 0.83x magnification and 3.68m-dot resolution. The EVF gains a fast 120 fps refresh rate with lag-free viewing. The LCD monitor is now a 3.0" 1.04m-dot free-angle touchscreen for working at all 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 colour 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 9 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 colour, 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 coloured outline for quickly recognising 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 stabilisation technology the G9, in High-Resolution Mode can capture and compile eight separate images to create a single 80MP raw file. This system creates a more highly detailed and colour 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, and a top flash sync speed of 1/250 sec. An electronic shutter function will give you 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 the brightness of the EVF and LCD for comfortable viewing in low-light conditions.
  • 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.
