Lumix GX9 is a 20-megapixel rangefinder camera built with a Digital Live MOS Sensor and the high-precision Venus Engine processor, perfect for low-light shooting.
Panasonic’s 5-axis Dual I.S. technology ensures class-leading stabilisation from wide angle to telephoto so can leave the tripod at home. The electromagnetically-driven shutter system provides quiet, steady shooting.
GX9’s trademark tilting Live View Finder offers 2,760K-dot resolution for excellent clarity and sharpness. The viewfinder has a high magnification of 1.39x/0.7x (that’s equivalent to a 35mm camera). A Power Saving feature extends battery life up to 900 images per charge.
Lumix GX9 introduces a dial for quick changes to the exposure settings, and a focus lever for quick adjustment between automatic and manual. Rounding out the features are rapid autofocus set at 0.07 seconds; versatile 4K Photo and Video; and Bluetooth Low Energy connection to smartphones.
“The GX9 delivers the very best in Lumix image quality with the same sensor as Panasonic’s flagship G9,” says Scott Mellish, Product Marketing Manager, Imaging, Panasonic. “At the same time, its unobtrusive size supports natural, spontaneous photography of people and places.”
The DC-GX9 will be available in Australia April 2018 in Black, or two-tone Silver and Black colourways. The GX9 single lens kit with 12-32mm lens will set you back RRP AU$1,399.
