Panasonic surprised a lot of photographers when they announced a flagship camera with even stronger photographic capability than the GH5. Panasonic is targeting pros with this camera, so we went out with professional wildlife and landscape photographer Joe Desjardins to see if this new body can compete with professional DSLRs.

      With the current price of the G9 in the US under 1000.00 would you upgrade from the G85? I currently have that along with Pany 12-35 F2.8, Pany 35-100 F2.8 , Pany 42.5 F1.7 Olympus 25 F1.8 and Olympus 75-300 F4.6-6.7

      Why are so many reviewers, Vloggers etc. fixated on mirrorless cameras and our need to move over to this technology?  Yesterday I visited the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition in London featuring the best 100 images from around the world – some stunning photos.  I noticed that only 6 of the images on display were taken on mirrorless cameras of which five were Sony and there was only one micro-four thirds example.  Predominantly the photos were taken on a variety of Nikon and Canon DSLRs.  I didn’t count but felt that, certainly as far as the Nikon users were concerned, 60% at least were taken on full-frame cameras, the rest being crop-frame format and a few medium format.  I am not familiar with the Canon range to know which are full-frame and which are crop-factor. Would any of these winning or highly commended photographers have got any better results if they had been using mirrorless technology?  I suspect not.

      One could question the rationale of such a small sensor in a body that could easily hold a ff or asp-c sensor, which is four or two times larger and has better signal ratio. The unique selling point of mft is size, and that is lost in a bulky body like this.

      Handling and lens size...look at the Sony, is probably as small, but if you want good glass you need to huge huge lenses and the size advantage is lost, besides having horrible handling. With the G9, you have great handling and mid size lenses, this due to the sensor size. So yes if you look at the overall picture it has tons of benefits..

      I have owned the GH5, GH5s, Fuji X-T3...and I have not been able to bring myself to selling the G9. The stabilization coupled with the profiles like Cinelike D let you produce video as good as or better than anything out there. I learned through experience that selling points like 8 bit/10 bit 4:2:2 4:2:0 and all those crazy bitrates (e.g., 400Mpbs) are all marketing tricks. I couldn't tell the difference between them. Except for when the footage is supersmooth handheld, I know that footage came out of the G9. So yes - at the current price - it's a spectacular camera. For stills, stay below 3200 ISO and it's as good as anything out there.

      I've been a Pentax user for nearly 40 years and currently use the K-3 and the K-3 II with 5 of their lenses. Primarily I shoot aviation, airshows and ground movements with some architecture and portrait as well. I've not really had anything to worry about with my current kit but the weight is beginning to get to my arthritic bones so I'm seriously considering jumping ship to the M43 system with the G9. Good idea or bad, bearing in mind my type of photography? Any thoughts from anyone? Please?

      Toxic Tabasco In reply to Ray Jennings

      I made the switch from DSLR to the G9 system mainly for the 4K slow mo. And, the prospect of shooting long lens photography like wildlife and action with a pro body. The AF is super fast, and there are many options for setting it up. There is a learning curve for the various AF features on the G9, and it takes a few outings to know the strengths of each one, and when best to use them. The IBIS is like Chris and Jordan said on their GH5 review, a game changer. It makes acquiring subjects much easier with more accuracy with long lenses. Good luck on your decision Ray.

Mic input, headphone output, decent pre-amps, full HDMI connector with 4K output at 30 FPS in 8-bit 4:2:2 format, 60 FPS, Slow Motion, 5-axis Dual IBIS, 2 card slots, flip screen, bigger battery and USB power. Guys you don't understand! This is the budget GH5 we have all been waiting for. Panasonic made this camera for video, not photo. For photo, they will be releasing their Full Frame line this year. Just think about it!

      It's obv it's a photo camera first with capable video features for enthusiasts since video is limited to 10 and 30 min for 4k60 and 4k30 respectively and since they skimped out on other shooting modes and professional video features. The heat sink and build design is made to support high burst rates for photos instead of dissipating heat during hot 4k video recording so no I don't agree with you.

      I love the Hands-On Field Tests from Chris Nichols. That said I think TheCameraStoreTV should take in mind that most of the people who watch these reviews are just amateurs who want to know how a new model with the kitlens performs. What use is it to show stills and movies shot with lenses that costs 3 times more than the body? Everyone knows that a 1.4 is far better glass than a kitlens starting 3.5 ! So please give us reviews with simple kitlenses. If these results are reasonable, we know that buying additional better lenses can only result in better shooting.
      Anyway, his reviews are real jems.

      G9 did get a firmware update and improvement for its autofocus during video operation. However, it still does those minor adjustments after focusing - this is a distraction for the viewer. It might be better than before but it's agreeable that it lacks the Canon (and Sony) focus confidence. Besides the limitations of Micro 4/3 in low light (for some), AF smoothness and precision is a serious drawback for Panasonic brand.

      I'm not a fan of your in-store Talking-Heads videos, and more recently have been passing on notification of TheCameraStoreTV videos.
      So, I was glad to see with the Pana G9 that you guys chose to return to high value (more about the camera and less goofing) well done field test and evaluation of a really well done outdoor test. This video demonstrates why I came to this channel years back. Joe Desjardins was icing on the cake, although I wish he'd given a final evaluation of the 4/3's camera pros & cons for his kind of photography.
      Thanks again, a job well done.

      This camera is getting more popular with video shooters and I wish you'd did a bit more on the video side of things. For example the AutoFocus in video is from what I've seen head and shoulders above the GH5 cameras especially tracking. Couple that with the superb IBIS and the Cinelike profiles for just a hair over £1000 on eBay NEW and it sounds like a great deal. My one small gripe about Panasonic is, I do wish the lenses were cheaper. I know for a professional photographer the price of these lenses aren't that big a deal but for us mere mortals although excellent they still are a little pricey. I'm talking about the mark 2 lenses that you can use the dual image stabilization with. I'm not a professional photographer but I am a keen film maker and £600 for a lens is a big pull out for me.

      ok,here we go,deep into the land of petty,illogical,and just plain crazy...

      Panasonic is a company that made regular consumer products,along with one of their cousins,Technics,so we are talking about a company going into fairly new territory,marketing to photographers.Just like Sony,instead of the same old,same old,same old,tired old,they are bringing features to make things easier for shooters,instead of babbling on about how much glass,and 'the system'.Of course they are going to have kinks,bugs,and nuances to figure out,so it makes sense to make the gear,let us text it,let us use it,and give logical feedback.The more important thing is workflow,reliability,and creating gear people want to use,not just sit around and complain about.Intelligent people will buy it,and if it doesnt work,send it back,give their reasons,and keep it moving.If 14 to 30 days is not enough time to figure out of you want a camera,you might be in the wrong situation.

      That obvious and intelligent manner of doing things helps the company tremendously,if they are committed to customer service and being a longterm fixture in the camera world.My thing is,as an intelligent,thinking,reasoning,and creative person,one will find workaround if you're going to keep the G9 or whatever you buy,and use it,over and over,to create great images.Logic dictates,if you have something, because you bought it and decided to keep it,you can actually use it,and develop a workflow based on it;s strengths,not waste time online or crying to everyone about what it doesnt do.For example,i dont care what reviewers might say,dealers might say,yet ALL consumer grade automobiles do the same thing,getting you from point A to B and back.It doesnt really matter,except for what one wants to drive,sit in,and use,which brand,which year,nor anything else.Same thing with these cameras,because they all,when it comes to price points,do the same basic things.

      People are still making money,creating award winning images,and buying cameras over 5 years old,some with NOT A SHRED of video,1k,2k,4k,50k,HD,no D,and hardly any native lenses.Now i did raise an eyebrow when he started talking about bears,yet since he lives out there or is used to it,that's making sense to me.I know i might be next to a vehicle,motor running,and ready to get out of there if something looks weird.I can somewhat see it working because i remember taking a random walk in the woods,and this deer was right there..I already had my DSLR out,and i took my time,not making any sudden ,aggressive moves,and the deer stayed right there,allowed me to get close,and fire away.It's been my experience that once the shooter and subject have the same,easy,calm,fun,and positive flow,some amazing things happen..

      Bottom line,either get it,keep it,and use it,or just stop crying and give it back and get something else.It benefits no one except the crybaby and skeptic to whine,only offering unproductive opinions.Like Longrider said,we have been blessed with a myriad of impressive options and features and we dont have to worry about brands,just because they have been around for 5000 years.I cannot stand that dusty old stupid concept people have thsat just because it's been doe this and that way for 6000 years,it must be revered.Old stupid,old crazy,old stuck,and old boring is ONLY that,nothing more,and as they said,'there's no fool like an old fool'.On that note i might go check out the G9 to see if it fits my hand,my groove,and is smooth to use..

      Answers to your question

      Yes, there is a 30Min Video Recording Limit on HD Video, & 10min Limit On 4K Video
      Do to due to sensor heating in poor design of reducing heatsink mass?
      thus If Video is your focus then the GH5 is a much better choice for just additional $285.00 more

      Will Panasonic introduce a camera in the future with all of the same specs or greater as the G9, but with a permanent super zoom lens like Sony's RX10 Mark 3 and 4? I'm looking for a camera that has no less than 1" sensor or bigger, can film in 4K at 60fps, has image/optical stabilization and has built in super zoom lens that can cover anywhere from 20-24mm up to 600-1200mm.

      I love everything the G9 has to offer, but having to swap out lenses for different types of filming can be a bit of a pain. I like everything Sony RX10 mark 4 has to offer, except it doesn't film at 60fps in 4k.

      I do a lot of wildlife filming and I like to use slow motion capture. I also film a lot in 4K definition not fully zoomed in on certain subjects, so I can bring it into 1080p in post editing and move the video around for smooth movement on subjects that look like they were filmed up close.

      My overall budget is no more than $2000 to get started. I would like to stay closer to $1500 - $1750 range if possible.

      Just realize that the Panasonic 100-400 lens is a 200-800mm equivalent while being 6.75"x 3.27" and 2.17 lbs, while the Nikon is 10.53"x 4.25" and 5 lbs, while being 300-750mm equivalent. That's a pretty big size/weight difference, and the focal range is a lot broader for the Panasonic. This is the perfect example to show what kind of setup would be better off using M43 IMO

      rk napolean from my experience, the APS-C/MFT Difference is negligible. I own a G7 and my friends are using a 750D and a 6D. If anything the G7 seems to perform better than the 750D, probably due to surperior sensor technology. And the G7 has an older sensor compared to the G9. There is a noticeable difference to shooting full frame, but in real world scenarios I believe you will find the g7 to perform very similar to APS-C cameras.

      Panasonic is really doing well in photography especially now they came up with the G9 which is an impressive sport and wildlife camera for sure.

      This is an excellent, objective review. Very thorough. The only thing I would have liked a little more coverage on is actual image quality comparisons to its competitors. Some side-by-side examples would’ve been great. But that’s a minor thing. The review was outstanding.

      G9 is really a mighty camera! It can shoot both stills and videos very well. It is a bit heavy for a m43 camera but will balance well with your heavier lenses. However, one thing I find frustrating is the autofocus in video mode. The focus will hunt around even when just I sit or stand still. I learnt to manual focus though so it is not that big of a problem right now. I really love the camera and feel like it is a perfect fit for me! I just did a review on my channel as well.

      do you guys think this is a good camera for hybrid shooting most of the time photos like fashion photos and concerts event photography but also fashion videos and concert videos? :) usemy gh4 so far and i like it so far. The stabilizer would be amazing in myopinion as i likeusing prime lenses which sadly dont have stabilizer.

      I think the ergonomics are better on the G9. I wish they used the G9's handgrip for the GH5/GH5S.

      I would love to see the low light. You guys may have sold me on this because it has so much appeal in terms of size (for travel) and lens selection. I am between this and the a7iii. There is just a dearth of lens selection for the alphas and the size of the alphas is great but the FF glass is still huge. I love the look of the om-d e-m1 mkii, but this seems so feature-rich for the price. DECISIONS!!

      I don't recall seeing any videos where my eyes are just mesmerised by the beauty and clarity of Alberta. The grading is just absolutely phenomenal. This video is basically a moving desktop wallpaper.

      TheCameraStoreTV thanks! Want to know if it’s a great first camera to get! My dreamed camera is Leica M10 because I wanted to experiences real rangefinder’s OVF, the shutter speed dial and aperture ring and manual focus, the more consumer price of rangefinder is X100F but the soft lens is a bit thumb down for me, GX9’s IQ is great, 4K and overall features are good for the price but it doesn’t have shutter dial and only the typical spinning ring. Not sure should I go for my heart to work my way to get a real rangefinder Leica M10 or just get a GX9 which I can do way more things with it

      A nicely produced and informative video. Considering a G9 to back up my GH5 and to use as a stills camera. There are pros and cons to MFT, but I also have full frame cameras and unless I really need wall sized prints or I'm shooting over 3200 ISO my hand will always reach for the GH5. If I need even bigger prints I default to my antique 5x4 Linhof and get my hands wet!

      Unlike some respondents, I don't have tracking or autofocus problems with the GH5: it's a simple fix and I'm surprised that Panasonic haven't dealt with it in firmware.

      Lovely pictures by Joe Desjardins, by the way.

      I am very interested in the burst viewfinder experience of the G9 versus the Olympus M1.2 for mechanical shutter high speed burst in the 9 to 12 fps speed range for shooting runners, soccer players, and skateboarders. What was said about the G9 shaky viewfinder experience bothers me. I don't just want good results. I want an enjoyable shooting experience. I am a tactile person who cares about how the knobs look and work and how the camera feels and looks in operation. Which camera has the better experience? Does the viewfinder black out? Is the viewfinder more or less of a live view experience? Does the viewfinder show the current focus point group or focus point used positions? My Olympus M1.1 at 9 fps mechanical shutter shows the last picture taken, without indicating the location of the focus point. I would prefer more of a live few experience with visible focus points.

      Sorry, G9 marking the end of M 4/3. Overpriced and the small sensor just cannot keep up with APS-C like Fuji X-T2/X-T20. These days you get similar results from Sony 1" sensors. The value and size proposition of M 4/3 is dead. Very niche now and not worth it. (Speaking as someone who owns APS-C Fuji, Sony RX 10 family, and Oly M 4/3).
