Panasonic has announced the new LUMIX G9II mirrorless camera, which promises to raise the level of photography thanks to the new sensor and Phase Detection Auto-Focus technology.
The LUMIX G9II is the first in the LUMIX G series to incorporate PDAF technology for precise focusing. This feature offers faster response and greater image capture capacity.
The camera is equipped with a 25.2 megapixel Live MOS sensor, which produces high-resolution images and rich color tones. The camera also supports a mode high-speed burst shooting that captures images at 60 fps in AFC mode and a SH pre-burst recording that begins before the shutter opens.
Furthermore, the image stabilization system is further improved, combining 8-stop Body Image Stabilizer (BIS), 5-axis Dual IS 2 and advanced 7.5-stop Active IS.
In addition to the 25.2 megapixel Live MOS sensor, the mirrorless integrates a new engine for natural three-dimensional images and high-speed video processing and artificial intelligence-based recognition technology.
Among other functions, it offers one called Real Time LUT for customized color expression, the improved monochrome mode with LEICA Monochrome and the 100 megapixel high resolution mode; finally it also offers Live View Composite mode for extended photographic options.
- Full 4:2:0 10-bit 5.8K (4:3)/5.7K (17:9) sensor recording for flexible framing
- 4:2:0 10 bit C4K/4K 120p/100p mode for slow motion video
