The Panasonic Lumix GX9 was launched alongside the Lumix ZS200. Both compact cameras were announced by the manufacturer on the 13th of February 2018. If you are looking for a compact camera to buy in this year, then you should make your preferred choice amongst the two. I have talked about the Lumix ZS200 in my previous post, so let me now show you some of the Lumix GX9 features and price you can buy it once it available in the market.
Panasonic Lumix GX9 Features
The Panasonic Lumix GX9 featured a 20.3MP Micro Four Thirds sensor without a low-pass filter and Venus Engine processor. The Lumix GX9 has a 5-axis hybrid image stabilizer when used with stabilized lens. It also has a tilting electronic viewfinder which can tilt up by 90 degrees, and allow you to shoot from chest level. Meanwhile, the touch-screen display can tilt down so that you can shoot from above head-level.
The Panasonic Lumix GX9 also features the DFD AF system with face/eye edtection and low light af mode. The camera can also do 4k video and has a 4k photo mode just like the Lumix ZS200. It also allows you to shoot at 30fps and save individual 4k resolution images.
Other features of the Panasonic Lumix GX9 includes; include built-in Bluetooth LE and Wi-Fi, a new L.Monochrome D Photo Style, an Auto Marking function (marks the frame in 4K video most different from others), a Sequence Composition function (combines multiple photos for a motion image), Post Focus (selecting in-focus areas after shooting), and Focus Stacking.
Panasonic Lumix GX9 Price and Availability
The Panasonic Lumix GX9 price goes for just $999 and it will be available for purchase from the 20th of March 2018. Like I stated from the beginning, if you are looking for a compact camera to buy this year, then you should make this your choice.
