Panasonic Lumix G9 Mirrorless Camera
Digital Camera Description
The Panasonic Lumix G9 is a Mirrorless Digital Camera with a Four-Thirds sensor and a Micro Four-Thirds lens mount. Its 20 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 200-25600 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 100-25600. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in very low-light. With 20 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.
A builtin 5-Axis Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Panasonic Lumix G9 to compensate for camera shake up to 6.5-Stops beyond hand-holding with any mounted lens.
This camera features a hybrid shutter that can expose for 1/32000 to 1m. This camera can make Bulb exposures up to 30m. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/32000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.
The Panasonic Lumix G9 features a 225-point Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. Manual Focus is also available.
Rare triple control-dials are featured on this digital camera, giving the efficient direct control over every exposure-parameter needed by professional photographers. The weatherproof construction of this digital camera protects it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. This particular model is also freezeproof down to -10C. Framing on the Panasonic Lumix G9 is performed via a 0.50" Built-in EVF with 3.6 Megapixels. This extra large EVF has 0.83X magnification and shows 100% coverage.
