    Panasonic Lumix GX9 Announcement

      News

    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 photoraphy 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.

    3). Panasonic Lumix GX9

     

    When it comes to the construction, Lumix GX9 is a bit smaller and lighter (124x72.1x46.8mm 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.

      DESCRIPTION OF THE PANASONIC LUMIX TS7
      Panasonic FT7 is the first resistant compact camera with an in-built electronic viewfinder, equipped with the 20.4MP 1/2.3'' MOS sensor and not so bright zoom lens (f/3.3-5.9) with the equivalent of 28-128mm.

      It is also the first camera from this segment which offers an in-built electronic viewfinder (1.17 MP, zoom 0.45×). The camera is equipped with the 3'' LCD screen (unfortunately, not a touch one), 49-point phase-detection autofocus. There is also a possibility of recording films in 4K with the speed of 24f/s. In Full HD, the speed increases to 30f/s. In HD 720p, we will be able to record films in slow motion with the speed of 120f/s. The 4K Photo mode, known from more professional Panasonic cameras, is also at our disposal. This mode enables taking out single 8MP frames from 4K films. 

      What is more, the camera can be immersed up to 31 metres and put under the pressure of 100kg. The camera is also supposed to endure falls from 2m and ensure work in the temperatures up to  -10°C.
