    Panasonic Lumix GX9 Announcement

    Panasonic LUMIX GX9 is a new version of Lumix GX8 which had its premiere 3 years ago. Although the changes between the two cameras may not be seen at first glance, there are significant differences between them when it comes to the inside part.

    Although the camera is equipped with a sensor known from the previous model (the resolution of 20.3MP), there is no low-pass filter in the newest version, which is surely going to influence the sharpness of photographs in a positive way. The new sensor will make it possible to take photographs with the ISO sensitivity of 2560.

    The used sensor is supported by a well-known Venus Engine processor, which works with the maximum speed of 9 f/s (AFS mode) or 6 f/s in the continuous mode.

    The 49-point phase-detection autofocus system is responsible for focusing. It uses DFD technology known from other Panasonic cameras.

    GX9 is also equipped with a new 5-axis image stabilization system -  Dual I.S. This solution is known from the top Panasonic cameras and it applies the O.I.S.  (2-axis optical stabilization) and B.I.S. functions (5-axis body stabilization). As a result, Dual I.S. is supposed to effectively compensate for movements with 4x longer periods of shutter opening. The camera has both mechanical and electronic shutters.

    Panasonic couldn't, of course, let down the film-makers. GX9 can record films in 4K, with the resolution of 3840×2160 and the speed of 30p/25p. In the camera, we will also find the 45 Photo function, which offers special photography modes, based on film-making functions. 

    The camera has built-in connective functions: Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, which ensure greater flexibility while taking photographs and enable their immediate sharing.

    When it comes to the construction, Lumix GX9 is a bit smaller and lighter (124×72.1×46.8mm and 450g) than its predecessor. In the upper panel we can find a built-in flash. 

    Apart from that, in order to facilitate the control of the camera, a re-designed focusing lever, which enables switching between AFS (AFF), AFC and manual focusing. has been applied.

    What is more, GX9 uses a new LVF viewfinder (Live View Finder). The viewfinder is equipped with the eye sensor which starts focusing immediately after putting your eye against the LVF viewfinder.

    In the back panel, there is a 3'' touch screen with the resolution of around 1240k points and almost 100% field of view. However, the way of mounting has changed. In the previous generation, the screen was fully folding and rotating - now, it can only be folded up and slightly down.

    Panasonic Lumix GX9 is to be available on sale at the beginning of March. The camera with the 12-60mm f/3.5-5.6 lens will cost $999.

      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.
