Which one is your best settings for the best IQ. That’s possible your professional Olympus workflow not work well with lumix cameras? Next, I tried the 9fps burst with mechanical shutter to follow the dog with lateral movements. Presumably this is a dfd thing and am tempted to switch my olympus lenses to their panasonic counterparts…but I just love those olympus lenses. No I did test the focus bracketing, since that requires a tripod and I, being a genius, destroyed one of my tripod’s legs. i am using a refresh rate of 120 fps though. After some research he bought the lovely GX85. reduced eye strain and easier viewing through the LVF when wearing glasses. How anyone perceives it, is up to the person. The EVF did drop in resolution significantly when the camera was acquiring AF (half-press of shutter button), but that was brief and should not impact the overall shooting process. 65 min (rear monitor), 60 min (LVF) with H-FS12060, Approx. ・ The software to process RAW file on computer is not bundled with this camera.

This is especially true for the flagship cameras such as Panasonic GH5 and Olympus E-M1 Mark II. None of them were having any issues and I do not have perfect vision and I have adjusted the diopter compensation… soooo…. After looking through your other reviews, these are the best quality pics I’ve seen you do yet. The G9 is a recent model that features in the current product line-up of Panasonic.

SD slot modes let you swap a full card for an empty one, duplicate recording on both cards How about per pixel level detail and how about the color rendering? –. In summary, at high ISO, shoot RAW. But, to counter this argument, it isn’t sufficient, IMO, to compare what Sony has done by seemingly to shoe-horn a FF sensor into a body more or less on a par with this G9. If yes, any thoughts please? If your looking at the XT20, then the Panasonic equivalent would be the G80 or G85 (if in USA). I guess before I go down the choice of either a G9 or Em1 mk2 I may have to rent and test. Is the G9 a better all-round camera then the EM1 mark II in your opinion ?

I am going to photograph weddings with two Panasonic GX80, it will be black people so maybe not too bad when it comes to skin colour.

That is in de Dynamic range departemnt as they clearly show…Personally if it is all about high ISO quality, just that and not much else, why not buy an A7R for 1000 euro/dollar and be done with it?

Hi Robin, as a stage photographer I have been shooting in extremely dark lighting conditions (pitch dark, I would say) and never experienced your problems even once.

Therefore, for this particular review, I have painstakingly converted the files from RAW to DNG and processed the images individually in Capture One Pro. What you might be thinking of is what Olympus called “focus stacking,” which is when a camera takes a stack of pictures and composites them in camera to produce a single deep-focus image. The EVF black-out happened only when the camera struggled to acquire focus repeatedly. You are a life-saver. Unfortunately, that’s Nikon Malaysia. Thanks for all of your work!

Obviously, the G9 allows you to change the colours for JPG easily, which I have done for the GH5. The focus bracketing will not work with 4/3rds lenses, and probably not with other adapted auto-focus lenses. Tough, all-season adventure cameras for action addicts who love to share. Wanted to use this for some real estate and architectural photography, and these two aspects of images quality would be very beneficial. Thank you Jan, “There were moments when the AF failed to lock focus, and then the EVF/LCD screen went completely black for a couple seconds, before returning to normal.

Well, shooting RAW changes things, and yes I am VERY happy with the RAW files from the G9. I guess the remaining advantage would be the longer reach due to its smaller sensor and also some of the lenses are still pretty small in size. In terms of resolution, images are sharp and very detailed – thanks to the absence of an anti-alias filter. The high ISO performance of the G9 sits right at the top of Micro Four Thirds system, alongside Panasonic GH5 and Olympus E-M1 Mark II. But I also have the full line of 43rds lenses as I started out with an E3. Further, the G9 has Dual IS 2, combining the built in body 5-Axis IS and lens IS.
