Panasonic Lumix DC-G9

 

Panasonic's mirrorless Lumix DC-G9 camera boasts some head-turning specs, including 60fps Raw image capture, but we'll have to see if its real-world performance lives up to its promise.

Shoots at 60fps in Raw format. Tracks subjects at 20fps. 20MP sensor with 80MP high-resolution mode. EVF with 0.83x magnification. 4K video at 60fps. Vari-angle touch LCD. Rugged, dust- and splash-resistant body. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Video not as robust as GH5. High-resolution capture requires tripod and static subject.

Bottom Line: Panasonic's mirrorless Lumix DC-G9 camera boasts some head-turning specs, including 60fps Raw image capture, but we'll have to see if its real-world performance lives up to its promise.
