Overview

First in Mirrorless innovation, LUMIX by Panasonic leads in Mirrorless ILC camera innovation with the sleek, compact LUMIX GX9. Its flat body style is favored by LUMIX G enthusiasts and noted for high image quality and the streetwise creative freedom it delivers. The LUMIX GX9 captures vibrant, true-to-life, high-quality images with excellent resolution, high contrast and impressive color reproduction. The 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor (without low-pass filter) ensures maximum performance across a full range of LUMIX G and LEICA DG Micro Four Thirds lenses.

Key Features:

  • 20.3 MP high-resolution MOS Sensor
  • Tuned thre-dimensioned colour control
  • 5-Axis Dual I.S. enables up to 4-stop slower shutter speeds
  • 2760k-dot high-resolution Live View Finder
  • 4K Resolution
  • Touchscreen LCD

Pick Your Perfect Moment

By simply selecting a single frame from a video sequence (shot at 30 fps) in-camera, 4K PHOTO lets you choose the perfect moment to save as a high-res image with approx. 8-megapixel resolution. Record what intrigues you, then select and save for images just the you envisioned them.

20.3MP Pixel-perfect Photos

Shoot away night and day with clarity and confidence with a high-performance 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor for ultra-detailed imaging. With the removal of the low-pass filter from the sensor, the LUMIX GX9 delivers natural imagery with a high-dynamic range and artifact-free results.

4K Video — 4 Times the Pixel Counts of FHD

Whether for viewing video or editing it, 4K delivers a worlds-apart viewing experience. Its native resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels is four times larger than FHD for a far higher level of detail.

Film-Like Monochrome

Add an evocative, of a classic B&W film feeling to your images with L. Monochrome D. In addition to Monochrome and L. Monochrome, each mode can be combined with Grain Effect levels of Low, Standard or High. With the popular appeal of pre-digital, monochrome film at your fingertips, rich black tones and grainy textures make everyday scenes and subjects all the more alluring.

5-axis Dual I.S. and 5-axis Body I.S.

The LUMIX GX9 integrates a 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) combines body and lens stabilization for more powerful hand-shake correction. Ideal when shooting on the move, in a rush or tracking.

The I.S. works wonders with photo and video recording, including 4K video from wide to telephoto. And performs in low-light situations and accommodates a 4-stop slower shutter speed*. What's more, 5-axis Body I.S. corrects shake for all lenses, even those not equipped with O.I.S.

Bluetooth 4.2 & Wi-Fi® Control

Via the Panasonic Image App, Bluetooth 4.2 (Low Energy) controls remote shutter release and video record Start/Stop. It also ensures a continuous camera-smartphone connection with low energy consumption. After shooting, it switches to a Wi-Fi connection to automatically transfer data to your smartphone.

Fast Auto-focus with DFD Technology

Panasonic's DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology* calculates distance to subject by instantly evaluating two images with different sharpness levels for ultra-high-speed AF. The GX9 fine-tunes AF precision to accurately track anyone and anything that moves, even in dimly lit settings with enhanced AF performance.

The end result is faster AF speeds up to approx. 0.07 seconds** and a burst shooting speed with AFC of 6 fps. A 9 fps burst shooting with AFS is also possible.

Tiltable Monitor

 

A large 3.0-in., approx. 1240k-dot static-type touchscreen monitor gives you a near 100% field of view. And it tilts 80 degrees up for framing high-angle shots of people gathered in crowds like parties and parades, and 45 degrees down for framing low-angle imaging when shooting subjects near ground level.

Venus Engine Power

Wherever inspiration finds you, a Venus Engine provides the power to shoot and record high-quality images with excellent resolution, high contrast and exceptional color reproduction.

Together, the Digital Live MOS sensor and Venus Engine render true-to-life color, texture and detail, plus intense brightness and contrast, all with minimum noise to make all your imaging pop even in low-light situations and a maximum sensitivity of ISO25600.

Useful Functions for Nighttime Shooting

Live View Boost

Brightens the display by lowering the frame rate and increasing the gain for shooting while framing, even in extremely dark situations.

20x MF Assist

Compared with the GX8, the MF Assist display in the GX9 has been enlarged 20x for accurate focusing even on tiny objects like stars.

Intuitive Viewfinder

The tiltable LVF in the GX9 is designed for framing shots and faithfully capturing the unique detail you want in your imaging, even from low-angles. It delivers 2760k-dot equivalent high resolution and approx. 100% color reproduction for high visibility under any conditions or circumstances.

4K PHOTO Sequence Composition

Catch the trajectory of dynamic action in a single photo with Sequence Composition. Simply choose the frames you like from your 4K PHOTO file to compose an action-packed shot.
