Today, Panasonic launched the Lumix G9, similar to the previously announced GH5 camera, but with more of a gear toward photographers. The Lumix G9 has a 20.3MP Live MOS sensor backed by the latest Venus Engine processor. This enables the camera to capture amazing photos and videos even up to ISO 25,600. This means you will be able to shoot in low-light and still have great quality photos or videos. The G9 also features continuous shooting up to 60 fps with an electronic shutter function. No, this isn't video at 60 fps.
Coming to the video features, the G9 also features up to 4K 60FPS and until recently, 4K 60FPS was reserved for only super high-end cameras and wasn't offered to consumers or prosumers. 4K 60FPS is great for high-speed action when you want buttery-smooth video. The Lumix G9 also features a fully weatherproofed body, which means that the body is splash, dust, and freezeproof according to Panasonic. Users should have no problem taking the G9 out into the world and not experiencing any malfunctions in extreme conditions.
This new camera also features an autofocus system with 225 areas of detection for fast and crisp focus and Dual I.S. 2.0, which is a 5-axis sensor stabilizations system that can compensate for up to six stops of camera shake. If the buyers are looking for super-high-resolution shooting, the G9 is perfect as the new sensor and processor give it the ability to do the multi-shot with eight separate images. Once the photos are taken, the camera compiles them into a single 80MP raw image. Panasonic claims that user will be able to get around 380 shots per battery charge, which means plenty of photos before needing to juice up. Sadly, unlike the GH5, the G9 doesn't offer a USB Type-C connection for external battery charging, though Panasonic does sell a battery pack that uses the micro USB port.
The Lumix G9 is set to launch in January 2018 for $1,697.99 body only and is currently available for pre-order at B&H and Amazon, with more retailers to come soon. This means buyers still need lenses in order to use it, but since it's based on the Micro 4/3 system, there are plenty of great options out there. Some retailers, like Amazon, have already bundles built for the G9 to get you going.
