The Lumix G9 is precision designed to shoot the breathtaking beauty of the natural world. Super-fast shooting combines with stunning image quality to let you capture every moment, whether it be wildlife in action or amazing close-ups. Incredibly fast autofocus keeps track of the subject, no matter how speedy, while 20 frames-per-second burst shooting and the 6K Photo feature let you select the perfect high quality still. High Resolution mode captures 80 megapixel equivalent shots for brilliantly-detailed macro work, while easy Bluetooth & Wi-Fi connection lets you share your work quickly and wirelessly. With an exceptionally clear OLED viewfinder and free angle touch screen, it's built for rugged use out in the field with a splashproof, dust proof and freeze-proof body. All this tech unites to make the mirrorless G9 the supreme outdoor and wildlife camera.
Supreme Image Quality
Its 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor without low-pass filter captures a superb level of detail, colour and brightness. The Venus Engine processor renders high-precision yet natural images with Multipixel Luminance Generation and Intelligent Detail Processing.
Stunningly Fast Shooting
Super-fast, high precision DFD (depth from defocus) autofocus achieves staggeringly fast AF speed of just 0.04 seconds, so the G9 locks on and never loses the target. And with burst shooting at 20fps with continuous AF, you'll capture amazing shots of even the most fast-moving subjects. With a compatible lens, Dual image stabilisation, a combination of Body and Optical stabilisation, compensates for camera shake and blur, up to 6.5 stops. It's ideal for optimising telephoto, night-time, and one-handed shooting.
4K Movie, 6K Photo
Shoot the moving image in hyper-detailed 4K UHD. An amazing level of detail is captured in beautifully smooth motion at up to 60p. With the brilliant 6K Photo mode, shoot continuously at 30 frames per second and then select the perfect still as an up to 18MP jpeg. It's a superb way to get that spot-on split second composition when shooting very fast-moving nature, sports or action.
High Resolution Mode
For stunning landscape and close-up macro photography, High Resolution mode delivers 80 megapixel equivalent images in JPEG & RAW format. An incredible level of detail and depth is captured by combining 8 images taken while shifting the sensor.
Bluetooth & Wi-Fi Connection
Integrated Bluetooth and Wi-Fi makes wireless connection with your smart device easy, for instant sharing of your work. A Bluetooth low energy connection maintains a consistent and reliable link with your smart phone or tablet, while using minimal power.
Tough, Resilient Build
Ideal for shots of the natural world out in the wild, the G9 is built for the outdoor life. Its magnesium alloy body is splash-proof, dust-proof, and freeze-proof down to -10°C. A fully free angle touch screen lets you get the shot no matter how difficult the angle, and provides intuitive touch control. An OLED viewfinder offers an exceptionally clear view with 100% coverage, high magnification ratio of 0.83x (35mm equivalent) and 10,000:1 contrast ratio for supreme visibility. It also features a double SD card slot supporting high speed UHS-II compatibility. With a smaller and lighter body than a DSLR it's ideal for travelling light while not sacrificing image quality.
This kit is supplied with the LEICA DG VARIO-ELMARIT 12-60mm F2.8-4.0 ASPH. POWER O.I.S lens. Leica's standard zoom lens is ideal for natural landscapes, mid-telephoto portraits and macro work. Renowned Leica resolution renders the entire frame with extreme clarity, from corner to corner, and its rugged build is perfectly suited out in the field.
Lenses & Cases
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless. Click here to browse our selection.
