lumix g9 review

The recall too shows that Nikon had serious problems. Luminance noise starts to make itself known at ISO 800, but detail is well preserved at this setting. Very poor dynamic range: https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr144_0=panasonic_dcg9&attr144_1=panasonic_dmcgx85&attr144_2=fujifilm_xt20&attr144_3=canon_eosm6&attr146_0=200_5&attr146_1=200_5&attr146_2=200_5&attr146_3=100_5&attr177_1=off&attr177_2=off&normalization=compare&widget=397&x=0.35264044110160997&y=-0.11374764126042282 Worse than the Gx85, purple shadows are a no-go!How can dpreview be so blind? the inbuild features are great and the little top screen is very nice to have it now. Etc. Still, there are enough mitigating factors that some individuals may prefer or at least decide to use a G9. 6K burst (Start/Stop) mode starts shooting with a single press of a shutter button and stops with a second press, making it better suited to shooting opportunities that require a longer waiting time. Other noteworthy controls include the joystick at the back, just to right of the EVF, which is used to control the active AF point(s). University of Washington Athletic Department. Who would have imagined that 5 years ago? Panasonic G9 Firmware - Is there still a reason to buy a GH5? The AF test result can't be trusted. We threw one onto the Sony a7R IV and went out shooting. Got mine today for £1100 or $1351 US with 12-60 Leica lens. Panasonic has executed its high-res mode extremely well, making it both effectively quick and simple to use.

Quick question that I haven’t been able to source an answer for- max recording time is 10min/30min depending on mode. Panasonic might not be the first camera manufacturer you’d associate with producing the best purists camera, partly because in years gone by it’s become well known for its excellent travel compacts and high-end, video-focused models. Underneath its skin, the G9 is built around a strong magnesium alloy chassis, which is different to the G80’s magnesium alloy front-plate and plastic top-plate design. And very busy bokeh which is ugly. wildlife 400mm and the 12-60 2.8. hope make a different.the problem is, for most situations fz1000 is still great.THX for the nice gallery. In real life situations I never encountered any problems what so ever with the G9. About a quarter of the way through the game it became clear I was not going to be able to use the G9 to photograph basketball the way I would with a DSLR: using a single point or small zone, slightly off center, with back-button AF. Quite a large camera for such a small imager inside. In two years. You need a certain size for effective handling with larger lenses. This is why my opinion means nothing to most and his opinion means nothing to me, and that is OK. Don't conflate a professional judgement with "bias" just because you haven't arrived at the same opinion. Richard Butler: As soon as you change the angle of view, you change the perspective (perspective change is dependent on AOV). Many thanks if you can provide. ISO 12,800 and ISO 25,600 give poor results, so if you shoot regularly in very low light then buying a camera with a larger APS-C or full-frame sensor would make more sense. maybe they dont whant make the GH5 users angry. I will also include sample images at the end of the review. A new product, Wristcam, aims to change this by incorporating a pair of cameras in an Apple Watch band. Noise at 6400 is virtually identical to my 7D2, with the G9 offering a touch more detail in the side by side tests I've put them through. So, how does that logic of yours working out for you? Unlike the Lumix GH5, which is highly regarded by videographers for its broadcast-standard video capabilities, the Panasonic Lumix G9 is out to fulfil the demands of serious stills-focused photographers. And it improved autofocus pretty dramatically, in some situations. Last week Panasonic announced a major firmware update for the G9, adding video features once exclusive to the GH5 series. These minor points aside, the G9 is an extremely enjoyable camera to shoot with. This also makes it very difficult to follow the action (unless shooting with both eyes open). It's harder for a small sensor to do the shallow aspect of that. However, not every Leica DG or Lumix G lens is supported by this latest IS system, and some lenses will require a firmware update to make them compatible. What follows are the headiest products of 2020, the ones photographers really want. It … I would suggest using something like RAWDigger for this kind of analysis as the histograms that LR and PS show you are not truly representative of what's in the file. The X-Pro2 (which I owned) has a relatively tiny EVF, lags in autofocus compared to the G9, plods along with only a single slow SD card with a shallow buffer and no focus stacking or ability to reliably focus at -4 EV. We may earn a commission if you click a deal and buy an item. These capable cameras should be solid and well-built, have both speed and focus for capturing fast action and offer professional-level image quality. ?The G7 does pretty well, but it is quite difficult to get the subject in the frame. This practically means the XT 2 is 1/3 stops darker for the same exposure values compared to the G9.The Panasonic not only has a higher latitude in the highlights but the so called half a stop ISO difference is actually more like 1/3 of a stop + the G9 has a better resolving detail. Panasonic Lumix G9’s magnesium alloy body is sealed and gasketed throughout. Of course, there’s still the question of noise, with the smaller Micro Four Thirds sensor having its work cut out to rival its APS-C competition. https://www.flickr.com/photos/114407047@N06/31260858252/in/album-72157686225817362/, no, I agree...that image is not pleasing to me but sharpening/processing skills are not the basis of this micro-conversation--which is about PDAF vs. CDAF and one camera having it and one camera not and the one with being BIF/sports capable---or did you miss that part :). The Lumix G9 is a sound mirrorless camera boasting a speedy specification, which it backs up with an admirable performance out in the field. Depends on the application. DSLR-stileDSLR-priceBig lenses"Compact" m4/3LoL. All the others cams used the inexpensive Oly 45. "There's really no such thing as highlight DR". While not advertised as a sports camera, the G9 is slated as the brand's top stills-oriented body, and has impressive burst specs to boot. There are a lot of photo/video cameras that have found a role as B-cameras on professional productions or A-camera for amateur and independent productions. Nothing wrong of course, but you aren't really watching what the out-of-camera shots would have looked like and unfortunately they were not supplied. Or look at this raw file: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/panasonic-g9/Y-1049770-SHADOWS.RW2.HTMAt Iso 200 you can't make the trees bright without making them a bit purple. All my Canon gear is finally on its way after 20 years. realy i like your reviews. On paper, the specification looks remarkably impressive, with plenty of functionality never seen before on a Lumix G model. I can answer. Not to mention rolling shutter reared its ugly head in some of my shots. ask Olympus why. The g9 looks to be around a stop better than the em1 ii.Look in on m43 forum soon and I will post the results again. To achieve the finest results at high sensitivity settings, setting the camera to shoot in the Raw format is an absolute must. Multiply the number below the line by 200 for the resolution in lines/picture height, Panasonic Lumix G9, Raw, ISO 25600. On the other hand, MFT cannot reach the same thin DOF as FF "unless using Pro 1.2s", its DOF is deeper, but strangely enough, this feature is not allowed to be advantageous. Shooting basketball with this camera left me completely unsure of which shots I got and which I did not. Where did the progress remain at this high price? The award system is very easy to understand. This camera has a high burst rate and hence, if you look through those 16 frames, the subject travelled, maybe 2 or 3 meters in z-axis, and in such case, every single camera since AF was invented can track it. Tell us what you think - send your emails to the Editor. a 200-800mm FF lens even if you "just" use a 100-400 with a 2x TC. A camera primary aimed at still photography that would sit alongside the GH5 - I get it. The camera measures 5.39 x 3.82 x 3.6 inches and weighs 1.45 lbs. Ergonomics Speed High Resolution Image Stabilization Video Conclusion. The Lumix G9 is a pretty big/beefy camera– I would call it has a “medium” weight//it feels great in the hands, but is still a bit heavy. just that the artificially cropped this cam in videomode is sad. but iam no load truck. When you look at the sample images back then I see a noticeable difference only to the new 20MP MFT sensors. DFD is a software improvement. Am back on the little beauty that the NX500 is, even without EVF or mic/head jack. I don't know what you are talking about, the G9 has no additional crop in video mode compared to the still mode. We’ll always tell you what we find. Yongnuo, makers of lenses, cameras and other photo accessories, has filed a patent for a modular mirrorless camera system. Absolute joy to work with despite it's limitations. But we shouldn't worry, the D500s which will probably be the same camera as it's predecessor in almost any, will definitely get a GOLD award after more than two years, cause for "the staff" it'll be a real innovation. This camera has a high burst rate and hence, if you look through those 16 frames, the subject travelled, maybe 2 meters in z-axis, and in such case, every single camera since AF was invented can track it. It isn’t just the continuous speeds at which the G9 shoots at that make a serious impression; the way it handles and processes such high volumes of data so quickly must be commended too. You get somewhat of a limited window at the camera’s top burst speed: about 50 shots out of the G9 at 20 fps before it hits its buffer. I decided to try a G9. For most serious sports shooters this is far from ideal. The more competition, the beter the products. [21/11/2017] Added video, conclusions sections. The distance has more effect on DOF (macro photography) than stopping down the lens. At which point, for non-macro working distances, where's this depth-of-field advantage? The Oly 45 is a great lens *for the price*, but is NOT as sharp nor as consistent across the frame as the Nocticron. But like many, I've been running a mirrorless system alongside my DSLRs for several years now for something smaller and for video. specially when mass is importand. I wrote why in this review - https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4244514. The aspect Nikon didn't promote at the time of the D610's launch was that the new shutter may also have been intended to address the D600's reputation-damaging dust/oil problem. :). However, blasphemous though it might sound, image quality isn't the sole consideration when choosing a camera. High ISO noise virtually identical to the 7D2. I would be bias in a different way and might never give gold to a heavy system with an OVF because of the way I use my gear. I’m in the market and looking at the DC-G9. It'll be great if they can review the AF performance by slowing down the fps but keeping the subject speed as it is and assess again. FF needs several stops for best results. maybe firmware? When in doubt, shoot wide. January 22, 2018 by Robin Wong. This allows users to extract 8-megapixel stills from 4K footage at 60fps, or 18-megapixel stills from 6K video at 30fps. In between I owned a variety of mirrorless from various manufactures, including GX85, G85, e-m5 mark ii ..bla bla bla. At ISO 100 the image is very good!At ISO 400 again, there are no problems with the magenta cast in the deep shadows. I had the Gx85 and at 100% the raw files often looked as if there was a clarity effect baked in which didn't look natural at all. Mainly Panny Leica 25 vs EF 50 1.2. I think they should use the same lenses for fair comparisson, the PL 42.5 was also available when testing the Olympus. Multiply the number below the line by 200 for the resolution in lines/picture height. What are Panasonic up to? A) They are based on similar technology (sorry Medium Format CCD), B) Equivalently bright lenses are available (a challenge for Fujifilm/Hasselblad/Pentax 44 x 33 format, at present). Real world Hi ISO is no match to current APSC and FF ones. Panasonic Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 Power O.I.S, with DMW-TC14 1.4x teleconverter, 1/2000sec at f/4, ISO 400. Posted on November 8, 2017 July 6, 2018 Author Richard 5 Comments. Rotating the drive mode dial to 6K and entering the quick menu presents all of the G9’s 6K and 4K Photo mode options. :). Some odd thinking going on. The G9 has a larger footprint than both the Lumix G7 and G80, and it’s less stocky-looking than the GH5. https://www.dpreview.com/galleries/3030453205/photos/3728192/panasonic-g9, And 100% crops:https://www.dpreview.com/galleries/3030453205/photos/3728194/panasonic-g9-full-size. It’s been a busy six months or so for Panasonic with three new mirrorless models added to the Lumix lineup. I sometimes think they are be incentived by some manufacturers and not others. The G9’s new IS system is also dual-purpose in the way it allows the camera to offer a new 80-megapixel high-resolution mode, whereby the sensor is shifted precisely between eight shots to create a single image with much finer detail. The Lumix DC-G9 is its answer, promising to deliver best-in-class capture rates, image quality that's tuned for still photography, and controls designed with stills in mind. In short, the G9 had its work cut out for it. :-D, So I did order it, got irresistible deal on a new body (£1030) with one year warranty, from what looks like eGlobalUK's ebay account with very good feedback from around 600+ transactions. You cannot zoom with your feet. Provided you shoot in Raw, you can pull back a plausible level of detail from shadowed regions without introducing too much noise. Such a step up in their own test should have been recognized. For the sake of testing I used the 20 fps mode quite a bit, with decent results in the full AF coverage area "225-area" mode (more on that below,) but was often frustrated that the burst time was not long enough to fully capture a moment of action. Action is fast paced, with plenty of confusing elements to distract and trip up a camera’s AF system. So I'm glad the G9 aced dpreview's test with original firmware, but now its even better. Surprisingly, though, there’s no in-camera panoramic mode as seen before on other Panasonic cameras. To expect them to give an appropriate score to a camera that is different than the system they have built for themselves is asking a lot. The strength of smaller format is that it can be smaller, less expensive, maybe better at video. You are totally wrong here! So, assuming no radical difference in sensor efficiency, both cameras will produce very similar images when printed or viewed at the same size. Looks like a great camera but I bought into m43s for the smaller size so I'm not the target market of this camera. The D610 is a D600. Like the GH5, the G9 is a mirrorless camera with a Four Thirds Type sensor and a Micro Four Thirds lens mount. The Panasonic Lumix G9 is Panasonic’s flagship stills-camera and it sits alongside the GH5 at the top of the company’s interchangeable lens camera line-up. I also do not like the fact, that Panasonic DFD AF works only with select Panasonic lenses, while Olympus PDAF works fast with both Olympus and Panasonic. Boerni52: Although I think it can be a mistake to get hung up on measurements, a DxO comparison between the GX7 and the E-M1 II shows what you might expect the difference between the GX7 and G9 to be. Edited to taste in Adobe Camera Raw. Will report back :-), I am going to start to think that my hands are on the smaller side. It costs the same as an Xpro 2, weighs 20% more and has a tiny little sensor ? In general there are size and cost advantages to using smaller sensor cameras (plus the potential for faster readout/less rolling shutter and, in theory, better stabilization through smaller sensors having less inertia), but if sensor performance is the same, you can always stop a larger sensor down and match the results. Thankfully, the buffer clears quickly. But man you sure make lots of stink and noise tying to tell people the G9 is not for you. However all the cameras I've used courtside have offered some sort of phase detection AF. That was my point. I tried the smaller 12mm Lumix f/2.8 lens, but the tiny pancake lens wasn’t balanced with the G9 Pro. They'll have the same diffraction, very similar noise, the same perspective and the same depth-of-field. I also never liked colors of the Lumix for photos. The app includes automatic image transfer, gallery creation, editing tools and more. One of the key features yet to be mentioned is the G9’s new 5-axis Dual I.S II image stabiliser, which offers 6.5 stops of compensation to counteract camera shake when shooting stills or movies. The top tier cameras prioritize comfort of handling and operation over minimizing the size. Chris and Jordan take a look at the new Sigma 35mm F2 and 65mm F2. What stopped you from using your analytical powers and come with this simplistic comparison since it is pretty obvious where the differences are. All other Olympus cameras do not have the benefit of Panasonic’s fast DFD or PDAF, no matter if the lens connected is an Olympus or a Panasonic (or whatever brand) one. The Lumix G9 inherits the same 20.3-megapixel Live MOS sensor from the Lumix GH5, which looses an anti-aliasing filter in order to maximise resolution. So the GX9 is not a small G9, it is a renewed GX7... DXO Photo update 1.1.2 just came out today.., and still no promised G9 support. For instance, on several occasions while using single area or zone modes, a player would be driving down the court with no one around them and the camera failed entirely to lock focus. If a camera doesn't perform well in ISO between 640 - 3200 (at least 1600), it's not considered a good one. Find out if it'll make your life easier in our detailed review. While they were out shooting their video about Sigma's new lenses, Chris and Jordan filled up a memory card with photos from the 35mm F2 DG DN using Panasonic bodies. Remember that Panasonic launched a 42.5/1.2 way before Olympus launched its F1.2 lenses. You're rounding down (Oly) and up (Nikon) to the whole number but not rounding for the Panasonic. even the XH1 is cheaper than XT3 and G9 now. With other high-end mirrorless cameras putting in blisteringly fast AF performances of late, the G9 has a lot to live up to. There is actually a review here from 2003https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/olympuse1/24Impressive image quality I think :) I don't own a 4K display yet but I guess 5MP would be too low. Is there a delay after reaching the time limit? Some see APS-c is their ideal tradeoff between size/weight and IQ as compared to FF and others have other standards. So whynshould Pnansonic do the work for Olympus? This is no better experienced than using its high-resolution mode, where you can create a 40-megapixel or 80.5-megapixel file whilst simultaneously recording a normal image in the Raw or JPEG formats. DFD has proven to be capable at maintaining focus on a rapidly approaching subject (spoiler alert from our upcoming review: the G9 aces our bike test). Other early observations included the shutter button requiring the lightest of presses beyond a halfway press to take a shot; and the battery indicator showing only four bars and not displaying remaining power as a percentage, neither on the shooting screen nor from the menu. Having the option of flicking between two burst modes from the drive mode dial is an excellent idea. That is probably the reason yes! Panasonic G9 vs. Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III: Which is the king of Micro 43? So don't make the mistake to think that these shots represent what the camera jpegs would have looked like out-of-camera. ): https://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Olympus-OM-D-E-M1-Mark-II-versus-Panasonic-Lumix-DMC-GX7___1136_901. It's available in Canon EF, Fuji X, Leica M, M42, MFT, Nikon F, Pentax K and Sony E mounts and the first units are expected to ship in January 2021. There is a depth of field advantage of smaller sensors using the same angle of view. https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/olympuse1/24, https://www.flickr.com/photos/114407047@N06/albums/72157686225817362, https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr144_0=panasonic_dcg9&attr144_1=panasonic_dmcgx85&attr144_2=fujifilm_xt20&attr144_3=canon_eosm6&attr146_0=200_5&attr146_1=200_5&attr146_2=200_5&attr146_3=100_5&attr177_1=off&attr177_2=off&normalization=compare&widget=397&x=0.35264044110160997&y=-0.11374764126042282, http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/panasonic-g9/Y-1049770-SHADOWS.RW2.HTM, https://www.dpreview.com/galleries/3030453205/photos/3728194/panasonic-g9-full-size, https://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Olympus-OM-D-E-M1-Mark-II-versus-Panasonic-Lumix-DMC-GX7___1136_901, https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4244514, Review: Monogram Creative Console - a refinement of our favorite modular editing hardware. Easy choice if sensors dictate all it seems.Also I have a Gm5 too. I wish Fuji had in camera timelapse and the feature where you can extract photos from the video. It can record 4K video (3840 x 2160) at up to 60fps, with a bit-rate of 150Mbps and 4:2:0 8-bit colour output. Fingers crossed as this is great deal. With this being said, the G9 is not much smaller or lighter than an average DSLR, although we would expect it given that it is a mirrorless model. - but they do have format-specific strengths and weaknesses. i sold all my mFT assets and bought into FF and APS-C systems. The display mode switch takes a sec, but seems snappy once you are browsing. The Lumix G9 is a different kind of camera for Panasonic, one that strides out in a new direction. I noticed the G9’s automated in-camera noise reduction impinges on extremely fine detail being resolved in JPEGs images beyond ISO 400. The auto white balance system has also been updated. How do either of these cameras work on a subject going 80-100mph? We use industry standard tests in order to compare features properly. it is to individually to test cams. Compared to the native ISO 200 on the XT 2 the "extended" ISO 100 on the G9 has more highlight DR. https://www.dpreview.com/galleries/3030453205/photos/3726785/g9-vs-xt-2-dr. If I’m going to carry a camera bag to take photos, I can might as well throw in a FF kit in it otherwise just use my phone. Go check it out, look at the black and white images or at the beatles ... Wrong conclusion from DPR: "Detail captured in Raw is on par with the GH5, which is no surprise - it is also similar to that of the Olympus E-M1 II. Anyone planning to shoot in cold climates will be fine, provided it isn’t used below -10°C. I wish Panasonic would make a gx85 sized camera with the bells and whistles of the G9. Currently the difference is 1/3 of a stop according to DxO when we take Em1.2. I get to use a single set of lenses on tiny pocket cameras or on a body that'll handle big, fast lenses and AF sharply for sports. I set one to mechanical shutter + 9 fps and the other to electronic shutter + 20 fps, making it easy to switch on the fly. it shows i never need more than iso 3200. @VisualFX: You know that this pic was taken with a Canon 7D? This design remind me of the good old Olympus E-1 :). The GH-series has long held a positive reputation with pro-video shooters but Panasonic hasn't seen the likes of the GH5 resonate as well with the stills crowd. IR is fairly sloppy in that regard and doesn't bother controlling for exposure between different cameras. For me, this is the appropriate size. So, the G9 got a silver award for 'playing catch-up to a camera released more than a year ago', while the D610 (launched two years after the D600) got a gold award for having solved the dust/oil problem??
