    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.

      Panasonic Lumix GX800 – a treat for all lovers of functional, compact, and stylish cameras – also had its premiere today.
       
      The camera is equipped with a 16MP Live MOS sensor, without a low pass filter. Image processing is done by the Venus Engine image processor, thanks to which we can take photos with the speed up to 5.8 fps with 200-25600 sensitivity.
       

      1). Panasonic Lumix GX800
       
      The camera is equipped with a touch screen (resolution – 3'') which can be folded 180 degrees upwards. Thanks to this, it'll serve its function both in making photos and making selfie movies. The self-portait mode and a possibility of recording 4K videos should also be useful in that.
       

      2). Panasonic Lumix GX800
       
      The phase detection autofocus supported by DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology is responsible for adjusting the focus.
       

      3). Panasonic Lumix GX800
       
      With the new Panasonic GX800 we can also record movies in QFHD 4K (3840 × 2160 pixels) resolution as well as use advanced recording functions, such as Focus Stacking, Post Focus or Light Composition.
       

      4). Panasonic Lumix GX800
       
      Panasonic Lumix GX800 will be available in 4 color versions: silver, black, orange, and black-and-tan. It will be on sale in February 2017 with a f/3.5-5.6 12-32mm lens. The whole set will cost $550.
