    Comparison of the Specs: Panasonic Lumix G9 vs. Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II

      Gear

    Yesterday, Panasonic presented the G9 model – the camera which may become an interesting alternative for the Olympus system, particularly the OMD-EM1 Mark II model. In the table below you can find a comparison of specification of both models. However, it is worth remembering that the Olympus camera has been on the market for more than a year.

    The comparison of Panasonic G9 and the GH5 model can be found here.

      QUICK PANASONIC LUMIX G9 INFO
      Effective Pixels: 24 Mp Sensor Size: Micro Four Thirds 17.3 × 13.0mm Max Image Resolution: 5184 × 3888 Max Video Resolution: 3840 × 2160 @ 24p ISO: 100-25600 Lens Mount: Micro Four Thirds Weight: 579g / 1.27lb List Price: US $1697| UK £1491 | DE €1579  
      DESCRIPTION OF THE  PANASONIC LUMIX G9
      Lumix DMC-G9 is Panasonic's response to the fact that the top G5 model has been called a “video camera”. Possibly, the producer came to the conclusion that fighting with this opinion is meaningless and it decided to introduce into the market a camera which is to be associated mainly with photography. When it comes to the video functions, the new camera is only a little weaker than the GH5 model, but its photography functions are completely different.

      The camera is equipped with the 20.3 sensor, without a low-pass filter, supported by the latest-generation Venus Engine processor. In addition, the sensor is covered with the anti-glare layer, which is to ensure better color reproduction and image tonality. This set will make it possible to take photographs within the ISO range of 200 - 25600 (extended to ISO 100 - 25600) with the speed of 60f/s in full resolution, with the use of the electronic shutter and single AF measurement (20 f/s in the C-AF mode). The efficiency of the continuous shooting mode looks very good with the use of a standard mechanical shutter as it offers the results of 12f/s in the single mode and 9f/s in the continuous shooting mode. It is also worth mentioning that the buffer can store more than 60 RAW photographs and more 600 JPEG photographs.

      The camera will also not disappoint the film-makers. We can record in 4K, with the speed of 60f/s at a bit rate of 150Mb/s, with 8-bit sampling 4:2:0 (4:2:2 through HDMI, but only for 4K 30f/s), and in Full HD with the speed of 180 f/s. Apart from that, the camera offers many functions based on the movie mode, such as 6K Photo (long series with the speed of 30f/s, resolution – 16 Mp) or Post Focus (adjusting focus after taking a photograph).

      The camera is also equipped with the high resolution mode based on the sensor stabilization system. The camera will compose RAW files, with the dimensions of up to 10368 × 7776 pixels, from 8 frames created with the use of the sensor shift. Of course, in order to use this function we need a tripod and a static photographed object. The stabilization alone, with the support of the lens stabilization, is supposed to offer the efficiency of 6.5 EV.

      For the first time in the Micro Four Thirds system, we get an exceptionally big, 3.68 Mp OLED viewfinder with the zoom of 0.83× (equivalent for full frame), the contrast of 10000:1 and the 21 mm eyepoint.

      The camera has two SD card slots (UHS-II standard) as well as microphone and headphone inputs, USB 3.0 and miniHDMI connectors.

      The applied DMW-BLF19 rechargeable battery is known from the GH4 and GH5 models. It will make it possible to take 920 photographs, under the condition that we use a viewfinder in the energy-saving mode.

      The camera, as could be expected from such a professional construction, is fully made of magnesium and fully sealed. It has a big grip, 3 function knobs, a joystick for changing AF points and many other function buttons. For sure a great novelty is an upper supporting LCD screen, with the most important information about the settings. Thanks to it, the camera is not so different from the professional cameras of other producers.

      The lovers of extreme sports and holiday explorers had to wait 3 years for the new Panasonic device, with the use of  which they would be able to record their great discoveries and sports achievements. The successor of FT6, Panasonic Lumix DC-FT7, has just appeared on the market. 
       
      The main features of FT7 are its shock and water immersion resistance. The camera can be immersed up to 31m and it should remain undamaged after falling onto the hard surface from 2m. The device should also work properly in the temperature of -10°C.
       

      1). Panasonic Lumix DC-FT7
       
      Panasonic FT7 has been equipped with the 1/2.3'' MOS sensor, with the resolution of 20.4Mp. The strengthened waterproof construction of the camera has possibly made the designers use a rather unimpressive f/3.3-5.9 lens with the zoom with the equivalent of 28 - 128mm. We will also not be able to save RAW photographs.
       

      2). Panasonic Lumix DC-FT7
       
      For the first time, Panasonic used an in-built electronic viewfinder in such a device. It has the resolution of 1.17 Mp and the image can be zoomed up to 0.45x.  The camera is equipped with a classic 3'' LCD screen (not a touch one). Some of the other functions include 49-point  phase-detection autofocus and a possibility of recording films in 4K with the speed of 24f/s. The frame rate can be increased by reducing the resolution of the recorded film - in the case of 1080 up to 30f/s, and in the case of 720p up to 120f/s, which can be played in 4x slow motion.  
       

      3). Panasonic Lumix DC-FT7
       
      The original '4K Photo' mode enables the 'extraction' of individual frames from the registered 4K material. They have the resolution of 8Mp. The continuous shooting mode can work with the speed of 10f/s. The camera is equipped with the flash and LED diode, which can be helpful in recording videos and which can be used as a flashlight.
       

      4). Panasonic Lumix DC-FT7
       
      The camera will be sold in three colorful version: black, blue and orange. Panasonic Lumix FT7 is to appear on sale in the summer. It will cost $449.99. You can pre-order this camera here.
