Panasonic have unveiled their next flagship mirrorless camera, the Lumix G9. The company say it builds on the strengths of this year's GH5 but offers a lineup of best-in-class features that will make it a compelling option for enthusiast and professional photographers alike.

Scott Mellish, Product Marketing Manager, Imaging, Panasonic says that “the G9 takes the outstanding developments that debuted with the GH5 and adds new capabilities for specialised shooting never before seen in this class of camera.”

The G9 offers up the same rugged, weather-sealed splash, dust and freezeproof magnesium alloy design found in the GH5. It also boasts an industry-leading autofocus speed of 0.04 seconds and a LVF with a 0.83x magnification ratio and a 3,680K-dot OLED display. What's more, the magnification ratio on the display can be toggled between 0.7x and 0.77x - potentially making it a better fit for glasses-wearers.

"Enthusiasts looking to broaden their scope with a highly mobile camera designed for fast action photography in the wildlife and sports arena will appreciate the G9-with high-performance features housed in a sleek, lightweight design. In addition, the camera’s unique 80-megapixel mode is a boon for landscape photographers wanting to create images with incredible detail,” Mellish says.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
