DPReview: Panasonic G9 Review Silver Award


DPReview published their Panasonic G9 review today and it received an overall Silver Award. The camera is very well rounded for a m43 camera and DPReview seems fairly impressed with the camera.

Pros Cons
  • 20MP sensor increases resolution with no increase in pixel-level noise
  • JPEG noise reduction/sharpening is improved
  • Improved JPEG color, especially in challenging light
  • High quality UHD 4K/60p video capture
  • Best in class image stabilization for still shooters
  • Best continuous AF performance we’ve seen from a contrast detect system
  • Improved subject recognition
  • Continuous shooting at 20 fps with continuous AF
  • Buffer at 9 fps is virtually endless
  • High Resolution mode offers extra detail, useful for static subjects
  • Large electronic viewfinder
  • Rugged, weather-sealed body with easy-to-access controls
  • Top plate LCD
  • AF joystick
  • Highly-customizable
  • Face Detect AF can finally be turned on without a trip to menus
  • Dual UHS-II high speed card slots, with support for V-class
  • USB 3 (Type C) jack can power and charge camera
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
  • Depth from Defocus flutter is distracting when shooting action
  • EVF resolution drops when shutter is pressed
  • AF joystick can not move points diagonally and is not responsive enough
  • Nose activates touchpad AF, no option to limit activation area
  • Screen can not be flipped out when ports are in use
  • 20 fps mode using electronic shutter can result in rolling shutter effect
