Features

20.3MP MOS sensor with AR coating

An AR (Anti Reflection) coating effectively suppresses flare to capture the expression of light as it is, even in a harsh shooting environment surrounded by strong light such as backlight, achieving high-quality visual beauty for both still images and videos.
20.3MP MOS sensor with AR coating

Ultra-fast autofocus and AFC burst

Panasonic's innovative DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology is constantly evolving and it's just got even better. DFD allows the LUMIX G9 to calculate focal lens movement by comparing depth of field values of two images at incredibly high speed. By combining the AF drive with a maximum read speed of 480 fps, the LUMIX G9 can achieve the industry's fastest level Autofocus in up to 0.04 seconds* and the world’s fastest 20 fps burst shooting with AFC** (60 fps burst shooting with AFS).
*In 1-Area AF, at wide-end with H-ES12060 (CIPA) in LVF120 fps setting. **For a Digital Single Lens Mirrorless camera as of 8 November, 2017.
Ultra-fast autofocus and AFC burst

Autofocus featuring AI technology

Panasonic’s advanced deep learning technology makes possible the recognition of human faces, eyes, heads,* and bodies, as well as common animals (dogs, cats and birds).**
*Please update the firmware to version 2.4 or later. **Please update the firmware to version 2.0 or later.

4K 60p/50p smooth video recording

The LUMIX G9 takes outstanding shooting performance to another level with high-precision, silky smooth 4K 60p/50p (QFHD 4K: 3840 x 2160) video recording. The firmware version 2.0 enables 4K 30p/25p/24p 4:2:2 10-bit recording in MOV format and VFR (variable frame rate) recording.
4K 60p/50p smooth video recording

V-Log L recording (optional)

The Upgrade Software Key DMW-SFU1 (sold separately)* and LUMIX G9 firmware version 2.0 enable V-Log L recording. Since V-Log L has the same V-Gamut characteristics as V-Log, LUTs used with V-Log can be used in color grading. And footage from VariCam series cameras can be seamlessly included in the edit.**
*Please refer to the bundled instruction manual for the activation procedure. **V-Log/V-Gamut and LUTs

The largest-level 0.83x OLED LVF in mirrorless camera

A super high-resolution 3,680k-dot OLED LVF (Live View Finder) brings gorgeous visibility and makes for perfect framing even under direct sunlight. The highest-level 0.83x magnification in mirrorless camera category (35mm camera equivalent) makes it easy to see image detail, your settings and icons, and, the long eye point distance of 21mm is excellent for people who wear spectacles. Best of all, the OLED LVF ensures your pictures match up to exactly how you intended them.

Large Status LCD

A status LCD that lets you instantly confirm the settings is provided for the first time on a LUMIX camera. Convenient for shooting with frequent settings adjustments, and for simply framing with the viewfinder and rear monitor. Also handy for scenes such as nighttime shots, when the light of the rear monitor bothers you.

6.5-stop Dual I.S. 2

It's difficult to handhold a camera at the best of times, but don't fret: with the 5-axis Dual I.S. 2 (Image Stabilizer), intelligent compensation comes to your aid. This is the equivalent to 6.5 doublings of exposure duration, meaning you can use a 6.5-stop slower shutter speed up to tele-end.* The LUMIX G9 eliminates shake in both body and lens even at the telephoto setting. It also works in both photo and video recording, including 4K video. The astonishing power of the 5-axis Body I.S. with 6.5-stop compensation power corrects shake for all lenses, even those not equipped with O.I.S.**
*Based on the CIPA standard [Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=140mm (35mm camera equivalent f=280mm) when H-FS14140 is used. **Based on the CIPA standard [Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=60mm (35mm camera equivalent f=120mm) when H-ES12060 is used.
6.5-stop Dual I.S. 2

USB power supply for extended shooting

USB power supply compatibility. Since you can shoot while connected to the battery charger, you don't need to worry about the remaining battery power and you can concentrate fully on shooting. An essential function for nature shooting where you need to wait patiently for the shot to happen.

Surprisingly detailed 80MP RAW recording

High Resolution mode is capable of 80-megapixel RAW recording. After shooting the 20.3-megapixel sensor 8 times, a single image is created. This professional function is widely used for producing exhibits.

NOTE

  • (*2) About motion picture recording / 6K PHOTO/4K PHOTO recording
    - 6K PHOTO is a high speed burst shooting function that cuts a still image out of a 4:3 or 3:2 video footage with approx. 18-megapixel (approx. 6000 x 3000 effective pixel count) that the 6K image manages.
    - Use a card with SD Speed Class with "Class 4" or higher when recording motion pictures in [AVCHD] or [MP4(under 28Mbps)].
    - Use a card with SD Speed Class with "UHS-I / UHS-II UHS Speed Class 3 (U3)" when recording motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K], [MOV], [High Speed Video], [Variable Frame Rate] or [6K PHOTO/4K PHOTO].
    (SD speed class is the speed standard regarding continuous writing.)
    - Recording stops when the continuous recording time exceeds 10 minutes in [4K/60p] [4K/50p] [4K/High Speed Video] [4K/30p/VFR 60fps or more] [4K/25p/VFR 50fps or more] [4K/24p/VFR 48fps or more] [6K PHOTO] [4K PHOTO/60fps].
    - Recording stops when the continuous recording time exceeds 29 minutes and 59 seconds in [4K/30p] [4K/25p] [4K/24p] [4K/30p/VFR less than 60fps] [4K/25p/VFR less than 50fps] [4K/24p/VFR less than 48fps] [FHD].
    - Motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K] or [MOV]:
    - When using an SDHC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
    - When using an SDXC memory card: You can record a motion picture in a single file.
    - Motion pictures with [MP4] in [FHD]:
    - You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
    - When the ambient temperature is high or continuous recording is performed, the camera may stop the recording to protect itself. Wait until the camera cools down.

    (*3) For [4K/60p] [4K/50p] video output, use an HDMI2.0 cable that has the HDMI logo on it, and that is described as"4K compatible".

    (*4) The camera may stop recording when used in lower or higher than recommended operating temperature: -10 to 40 degrees.

    (*5) Firmware must be updated to the latest version 1.1 or later.

    (*6) Firmware must be updated to the latest version 2.0 or later.

    (*7) Upgrade Software Key (DMW-SFU1) is required.
