TIPA World Awards 2018 for LUMIX G9, GH5S & TZ220 cameras
With great pride we announce that Panasonic LUMIX cameras have been honoured with three prestigious TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) World Awards 2018, widely recognised as one of the most coveted photo and imaging awards in the world. Our LUMIX G9 picked up ‘Best Mirrorless CSC Expert’, while our LUMIX GH5S received ‘Best Professional Photo/Video Camera’, and our LUMIX TZ220 was awarded ‘Best Expert Compact Camera’.
“The Lumix G9 delivers state-of-the-art image quality paired with an astonishing frame rate. The mirrorless camera delivers up to 60 fps in both JPEG and Raw formats incorporating DFD-AF with only 0.04 second lock focus speed. Equally impressive is the built-in stabilization system. It compensates up to 6.5 stops as well as providing a high resolution mode that delivers 80-megapixel-stills via the sensor shift technology. Photographers compose their natural textured and rich gradation images on a 3-inch free-angle display or via the ultra sharp large OLED-Viewfinder. All this ads-up to form this great camera.” – TIPA jury spokesperson
“The LUMIX GH5S can handle both ends of the image capture spectrum – both still and video — although it tips the scales towards the video side. The camera boasts the highest sensitivity of any LUMIX, particularly in low light. The camera’s 10.2MP High Sensitivity MOS sensor utilizes “Dual Native ISO Technology” to dig into even the darkest areas, allowing high ISO capture without supplemental lighting. It has numerous video capture options, including cinema 4K/60p and Full HD/200Mbps. On the still side, the GH5S delivers 14-bit Raw images at 11 fps, in 12-bit the frequency goes up to 12 fps. Dual card slots handle the data flow, with numerous output connections, including HDMI and USB-C, for moving the image data to the editing stage.” – TIPA jury spokesperson
“One of the most popular camera configurations for pros and enthusiasts alike is a pocketable, wide-range zoom camera that offers a wide range of features and excellent image quality; all attributes of the LUMIX TZ220. The 1-inch 20.1MP High sensitivity MOS sensor can be set up to ISO 12,800 (or expanded to ISO 25,600), making it a great low light performer. The integral Leica DC lens covers 24-360mm, with close-focusing capability of 3 cm Macro, and built-in 5-axis stabilization. Rounding out the special features, the TZ220 offers 4K 30p and Raw/JPEG still recording with an impressive Live View finder that offers excellent viewing even in bright light.” – TIPA jury spokesperson
