Dependable autofocus system
Phase Hybrid AF
Autofocus, at its core, is about trust. It's about the seamless dance between speed and accuracy that ensures you capture the moment. In addition to contrast AF, the LUMIX G9II is the first LUMIX micro four thirds, G series camera to offer the Hybrid Phase Autofocus System. The new AF system dramatically improves subject tracking even in challenging scenes including difficult lighting or where multiple subjects are involved.
･Firmware update with improved AF performance during zoom is planned for H-RS100400 and H-ES12060, to be made available in October 2023 from the customer support page.
Advanced detection AF
The LUMIX G9II’s advanced detection AF pushes the envelope on of sports, wildlife, and car/motorcycle photography. More accurate human body recognition enables you to single out a subject from among a field of athletes, for example, and shoot continuously. Other new functions include animal eye recognition and car/motorcycle recognition.
･Depending on settings, some subjects may not be recognized.
･The camera may sometimes recognize non-animal subjects as animals.
Just keep shooting
AFC 60 fps burst shooting
The new sensor’s higher readout speed and new engine’s superior processing power enable 60 fps burst shooting with AFC,* as well as burst shooting of up to approximately 3 seconds, all with the viewfinder remaining blackout-free. The sensor’s higher readout speed also minimizes rolling shutter distortion and captures images that are too fast for the naked eye to process.
*Uses electronic shutter. 75 fps in AFS.
Go back in time
What if you could turn back time to capture a shot? With pre-burst shooting, you can. The LUMIX G9II offers advanced flexibility with a choice of 0.5, 1.0, or 1.5-second pre-burst settings. Now you’ll never miss that decisive moment, even in the most dynamic situations, from the flapping of a bird’s wings to an unexpected play on the field.
The number of AF points has been increased to 779. The improved tracking performance allows the camera to continue to capture even small subjects that are easily out of focus. When using 1-Area AF, the AF frame can be set as small as pinpoint level, helping the creator focus on the subject as intended.
