Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

November 2017. Look out world here comes the Panasonic Lumix G9. Most of the improvements are targeted to the photographer over the videographer and have a lot to do with ergonomics for the pro photographer. Panasonic has definitely listened to the photographers out in field. Tiny but massive changes have been made for ease of use.

Panasonic is going after market share from Canon and Nikon. They are targeting the professional photographer. Personally I can't see Canon or Nikon shooters jumping ship BUT you can be sure that a newer photographer that is yet to lock into a brand is sure to put the Panasonic G9 on the shopping list.

In comparison to the Panasonic GH5 which brought the new body stabiliser system and of course the superb video performance. Panasonic claim 6.5 stops of body stabilisation and that is WITHOUT a lens with any IS. The G9 also has dual IS which is a new innovation.

Panasonic claim that the Lumix G9 has the worlds fastest auto-focus (doesn't everyone). It is hard to disagree that the auto-focusing is smokinly fast so maybe it is the fastest in most situations. The G9 build quality is also something to rave about, certainly ahead of other Panasonic cameras.

Next Panasonic Australia have a pretty decent introduction which is probably the best I have come across so far.

If you watch the Jessops video from about 45 seconds you will see a brilliant example of what you can achieve with the 20 frames per second shooting.
