From what I can make out from the Panasonic manual these features should work for any AF lens. 978g / 2.16 lb (SD card x 1, Battery, H-ES12060 lens included). The magenta cast has been observed by a few other people as well. Panasonic LUMIX G9 4K Digital Camera, 20.3 Megapixel Mirrorless Camera Plus 80 Megapixel High-Resolution Mode, 5-Axis Dual I.S. I am loving this camera but it’s actually a little too powerful for my current need. Your subjective reviews are (much) more reliable and interesting for me than all those lab result tests. Both the G9 and the GH4 are mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras that are equipped with a Four Thirds sensor. A camera is a lot more than just how it can shoot at high ISO. Odd as it may seem today, the best advice then was to tune into a live BBC news broadcast and play around with the settings for the most natural rendition of the newscaster’s (usually white Caucasion) face. I have now at least 2 people (one in this comment thread) and another in a photography forum confirming that the black-out on EVF and LCD when the camera could not focus in low light indeed did happen. included.). and Night Mode to Photo Quality, Photo Stabilizer, Shutter Type and more. It’s not easy to see in all situations, however there are mainly two subjects standing out: European skin tones are rendered with a reddish cast (looking like sunburnt), and burgundy red colors are shown as bright, popping red instead. One last thing: In Portrait mode the balance is better for European skin tones, however the burgundy reds are even more off. I unenthusiastically stuck with them through the E-System days, and was sort-of rewarded with an excellent modular macro flash system, but it was incompatible with the OM-System macro flashes that I had — so I adapted them! Was told that I was in the waiting list for Nikon D850… not sure what happened to that waiting list. It will have better lowlight performance than any APS-c sensored cam…. Hi Robin. Therefore, when Panasonic launched their new Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 recently, it seemed like they were targeting the photography crowd, considering the very similar photography specific features the G9 has in comparison to the E-M1 Mark II. 130 min (rear monitor), 120 min (LVF) with H-ES12060, AVCHD [FHD/60p]: Approx. I do not know about the G9 and how good its sensor is, but we can see they won’t be too far apart. Thanks for the kind words. Otherwise it seems like a good camera if you stay under ISO3200. Panasonic Lumix GX8 is now officially listed as discontinued at B&H. I repeated a similar test at least 8 times, and have achieved similar success each time. Shooting through that super large, 0.83x magnified and 3.68M dot electronic viewfinder was a new experience for me. Tele Conv. So if you love macro, Olympus certainly gets my vote! photography when waiting patiently for the shot to happen. 130 min (rear monitor), 120 min (LVF) with H-FS12060, Approx. Thanks Terry.

A fast lens can overcome 2/3 of a stop differences as well. The JPEG introduced a weird artifact that placed it there. Using Olympus lenses, you will not have the benefit of DFD for the S-AF and C-AF capability of the G9. The G80/G85 even had a US sale that included both the 12-60mm and the 45-200mm lenses for $1000. Hi Robin, as a stage photographer I have been shooting in extremely dark lighting conditions (pitch dark, I would say) and never experienced your problems even once. ), (depending on memory card size, battery power, picture size, and compression), Yes (Each JPEG image cropped out of the 6K/4K burst file complies with EXIF.). I was not able to test all features of the camera and shall only focus on the highlights of the G9. I don’t mind the presence of some luminance noise, as long as the image does not look like water-color in the end. If you’re looking for something – might I suggest a search? Great review Robin.

Christian, If I were to tweak the colors from the JPEG in camera, I would rather just post-process the RAW files to get the colors that I like as I have done for this review. Also, G9 has Dual IS 2 which is compatible with only selected pana lenses, none from Olympus. I am not saying the colors are bad, just unusual and not to my liking. Fuji’s lens will creep in on itself when shooting angled up. Thank you for a very good review. In a way I am glad you mentioned it as I thought I must have been seeing things that did not really happen. Because Micro Four Thirds have: better lenses (options, prices, sizes), MUCH better handling/ergonomics, better image stabilization, more reliable AF (yes the A9 is great but honestly how many people can afford that). ・ The software to process RAW file on computer is not bundled with this camera. for wedding, landscape and other still photography genres. Itâs been a busy six months or so for Panasonic with three new mirrorless models added to the Lumix lineup. from my experience, mainly in artifial lighting, skintones of Europeans are absolutely fine and definitely better than – for example – sony. And good that you took the time to play with the raws. Ask anyone with large hands and I’d bet this is a consideration for most. It will be a huge step up from the E-M10, and if you own mostly Olympus lenses, you won’t be getting the benefits of Panasonic specific features such as Dual IS or DFD (for C-AF shooting). But I also have the full line of 43rds lenses as I started out with an E3. Wanted to use this for some real estate and architectural photography, and these two aspects of images quality would be very beneficial. I used Shutter Priority, set the shutter speed to 5 seconds, and took the image with the camera hand-held. Like the Olympus E-M1 Mark II, the G9 is equipped with a high res shot capability. There were moments when the AF failed to lock focus, and then the EVF/LCD screen went completely black for a couple seconds, before returning to normal. But, to counter this argument, it isn’t sufficient, IMO, to compare what Sony has done by seemingly to shoe-horn a FF sensor into a body more or less on a par with this G9. I never encountered this on GH4, GM1 and LX100. Milky Way, you should be ok with E-M1 Mark II or G9, but make sure you are using the F2.8 wide angle lens! The Fuji cannot be compared to the G9. Synchronization for flash dimming and exposure compensation, Yes (When using DMW-FL200L / FL360L / FL580L (sold separately)), Wireless Channel: 1ch/2ch/3ch/4ch, TFT LCD monitor with static touch control, Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, Red-Green, Blue-Yellow, 4K PHOTO: 1.6x (4:3), 1.5x (3:2), 1.4x (16:9, 1:1), Level Gauge, Real-time Histogram, Guide Lines (3 patterns), Center Marker, Highlight display (Still image / motion picture), Zebra pattern (Still image / motion picture), Wi-Fi / Q.MENU / Video Record / LVF/Monitor Switch / LVF/Monitor Disp. No, because I have returned all Panasonic equipment. For me, if I were given the choice (assuming total system price is similar), I would definitely go with an FF because of some advantages it provides, like cropping and flexibility in post processing due to a more robust file. yes, of course. The LUMIX G9 is designed with a magnesium alloy, full diecast frame and durable high-speed shutter unit good for approx. I do love Olympus colors more, and overall the E-M1 Mark II is still my go to camera, mainly because I use mainly Olympus lenses. We are also on Facebook and there is a curated reader Flickr pool. Like Earl, I adore the ergonomics of the G9, and even find the much maligned autofocus time be, well, superb, but frustratingly could never make peace with the image quality. It has some attractive features including a weather-sealed body, a 2.36million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder, a 3-inch 1.040-million-dot OLED vari-angle touch-screen and Panasonicâs 5-axis Dual IS II system to help produce blur-free imageâ¦ … I find the reds unnatural with strong hints of magenta … Skin tones don’t look close to real life … Perhaps the problem is not with the camera, but my own preference.”. I also find Olympus Auto AWB to be more consistent, frame to frame. Hi Robin, did you get to the bottom of this issue or reached out to Panasonic on this perhaps? Ming Thein gave his direct feedback to us and I worked exhaustively with the R&D team to rectify this. The next test arena was the streets. this test in iso 6400 is extreme. The Panasonic Lumix G9 is a unique camera that delivers all the features one could want in a state-of-the-art mirrorless camera, and then some. I had no chance to test the dual IS with longer lenses, as the longest Panasonic lens I had was the 12-60mm F2.8-4 lens. Panasonic claimed that the G9 features a similar 20MP image sensor as the flagship GH5, but has a new and improved image processing engine. The EVF black-out happened only when the camera struggled to acquire focus repeatedly. 59.94p, 150Mbps (4:2:0 8-bit LongGOP) (LPCM), 29.97p, 100Mbps (4:2:0 8-bit LongGOP) (AAC), 23.98p, 100Mbps (4:2:0 8-bit LongGOP) (AAC), 59.94p, 28Mbps (4:2:0 8-bit LongGOP) (AAC), 29.97p, 20Mbps (4:2:0 8-bit LongGOP) (AAC), 59.94i, 24Mbps (LongGOP) (Dolby) (Sensor output is 29.97fps), 59.94i, 17Mbps (LongGOP) (Dolby) (Sensor output is 59.94fps). I’m thoroughly impressed by what Panasonic has achieved with the Depth From Defocus (DFD) for continuous AF. The Panasonic G9 is capable of excellent image quality. So I’m interested in a Nikon D750 but also in a G9, because I’ve several M43-lenses now… The pics you made with ISO6400 are looking promising. - Recording stops when the continuous recording time exceeds 29 minutes and 59 seconds with [AVCHD] in [FHD] and [MP4] in [4K/30p] [4K/24p] [FHD]. If you are happy with painting look on your image, go for it. Reminds me of somewhere between Provia and Pro Neg High on my Fujifilm body. Hi Robin, Thanks for the elaborate review, accompanied by your beautiful images as always. The G9 however… is more suited for something more serious and challenging. And which skin tone is to be used as the reference point for the camera to adjust for all other types? and control. A large, high-resolution 3,680k-dot OLED Live View Finder (LVF) vastly improves Built for Performance. Specifically the claimed 9 fps. All feedback has been provided to relevant parties. At 60fps it shows the last image taken instead. The G9 is fully weather sealed, and its body made of magnesium alloy. Again, the G9 did a superb job following Rocky with only a few, frames slightly out of focus. Thanks Mike. I love your macro-work Robin – I have a question : in DSLRs the lenses stops down first when you press the shutter full down and not when half pressing . I don’t believe that “to get something as simple as general skin tone right” is actually that simple at all. But if mirrorlesscomparisons (good rviews) are right there will also be cases in lower ISO department where the G9 will trump the XT2 and XT20. additions to the tools of your trade and passion are designed and built to the highest quality I have mostly Panasonic m43rds lenses and I know the aperture rings only work on Panasonic cameras. â¦ This time-saving dial on the camera's top shoulder (under the Mode Dial) controls release durable high-speed shutter unit good for approx. Since I had one battery to work with, I had to keep it charged for the following day and wasn’t able to deplete it completely for testing purposes. Have you compared the Fuji to the G9? 136.9 x 97.3 x 91.6 mm / 5.39 x 3.83 x 3.61 inch (excluding protrusions), Approx. For the macro’s did you use your flash method as published before?

Panasonic offers firmware update program for DC-G9 to enhance the performance and usability. 1) Does the G9 have a focus limiter like in E-M1 ii? Compatible with UHS-II Video I think that is extremely useful when shooting event. In addition to that, within Olympus’ ecosystem, there is a setting “Live View Boost” that allows bright clear EVF/LCD screen view of what you are shooting at all times, regardless of what settings you use. I only managed to get around 5 to 6fps when in afc. The GH-series has long held a positive reputation with pro-video shooters but Panasonic â¦ Odd comment vs. image –citing patches at eyebrows, i.e.– for shooting iso6400 :: IMO, the JPEG looks MUCH better than the RAW, both in smoothness & color, and e.g. Christian. I went from a Canon 6d to Olympus OMD EM-5 Mk2. Next, I tried the 9fps burst with mechanical shutter to follow the dog with lateral movements. It’s what goes into it that matters, but I guess there is an argument that if FF camera A costs the same or not much more than m4/3 camera B, then why not go for camera A? And you were right about getting your hands on the G9 first before making a decision. The Panasonic Lumix DC-G95 (G90 outside North America) is a 20MP mid-range mirrorless camera aimed at both stills and video shooters, but it faces some pretty stiff competition.

Both the G9 and GX9 feature 20MP Micro Four Thirds sensors. This camera will replace my omd-5 mkii when it will come back for the second time from repair services, the well-know deficiency but never talk about by reviewers : Burn evf using high diopter… ( an Evf made by Epson by-the-way). I think you won’t go wrong with either choice, E-M1 Mark II or the G9, both are very capable cameras. Robin, have you tried the G85? By applying just a hint of noise reduction, I can get away with very usable images even up to ISO6400. I specifically shoot food for LX10 and E-PL9 reviews, because many people will buy these entry level cameras as an upgrade from their smartphone cameras to get better output. I guess the remaining advantage would be the longer reach due to its smaller sensor and also some of the lenses are still pretty small in size. Did you have a chance to test out the focus bracketing or aperture bracketing? I was complaining about the inability of the G9 to acquire focus and gave up repeatedly in a dim light condition, and suddenly blacked out the EVF/LCD and gave up. I did this because I believe the images from the Panasonic G9 deserve better color treatment than what is produced straight out of the camera. They always make me want to grab my camera and shoot! Thanks a lot for your informative review! The camera you take with you, because it is small, light, and more easily used, takes a better picture than the super-low-noise, big, heavy camera you leave home. I believe it is somewhere F2.8 to F4 for preview purposes. T. o say that Olympus or any other company “never bothered” was a ridiculous statement. Dynamic / i. I don’t think, that it’s just a matter of your preference. Sony suffers serious shutter shock and light leaks in their earlier A7 series. The EVF did drop in resolution significantly when the camera was acquiring AF (half-press of shutter button), but that was brief and should not impact the overall shooting process. If your looking at the XT20, then the Panasonic equivalent would be the G80 or G85 (if in USA). Thanks in anticipation of your thoughts. I played a bit with the Panasonic specific Silkypix raw development (which also lets you replicate in-camera parameters to some extent), and found: reduce red saturation to about -20 to -40 (minimum on scale is -60), and reduce blue saturation to -10 to -20 (minimum on scale is also -60). Panasonic G100 vs G95 vs G9 vs G7 vs G6. Is the G9 a better all-round camera then the EM1 mark II in your opinion ? 130 min (rear monitor), 120 min (LVF) with H-FS12060, Approx.
