Panasonic Mirrorless Camera For True Creative Vision - DCGX9MK


$1,299.99 CAD


For True Creative Vision

When you look through the Tiltable LVF of your LUMIX GX9, the world is completely yours. Enjoy 20.3 Mpx resolution, monochrome effects, and 4K PHOTO mode featuring 30-fps shooting. This highly compact, slim camera is always at the ready to turn your photographic imagination into incredible shots.

20.3 Mpx pixel-perfect photos

The LUMIX GX9 packs a real punch with its high performance Digital Live MOS sensor sporting a whopping 20.3-megapixel to achieve uncompromising picture quality. Together with the removal of the low-pass filter from the sensor, you can confidently capture the sharpest ever imagery with a high dynamic range and artifact-free. The LUMIX GX9 is a camera of beauty created by you and crafted by Panasonic engineering.

Venus Engine - Impressive colour reproduction

Shoot high-quality, true-to-life images with excellent resolution, high contrast, and impressive colour reproduction. Combining the Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine renders clear images with minimum noise even in low-light situations and maximum sensitivity (ISO 25600).

Intuitive viewfinder control

The Tiltable LVF (Live View Finder) is perfect for framing your shot and capturing every detail you require, even from a low-angle. It boasts 2,760K-dot equivalent high resolution and approximately 100% colour reproduction for high visibility under any circumstances. The LUMIX GX9 also provides an intuitive level of operation. The front/rear dials control the main aperture and shutter speed settings, for easy, no-look white balance and ISO adjustments. In addition, a dedicated dial makes it easy to adjust exposure compensation.

1240K-dot Tiltable Monitor

The large 3.0-inch, approximately 1240K-dot static-type touch monitor tilts upward by 80 degrees and downward by 45 degrees. It enables dynamic framing for artistic low-angle shots, like when shooting at nearly ground level, and is highly practical for high-angle shots, like when you need to shoot over the heads of people at a parade or a party.

Optional accessories

These options have been specially designed to enhance the LUMIX GX9 operation. The DMW-EC5 Eyecup makes the image on the LVF (Live View Finder) easier to see by blocking unwanted light. It snugly fits the eye for greater viewing comfort. The DMW-HGR2 Hand Grip was crafted to give the LUMIX GX9 a more stable hold. The generous use of aluminum and a carefully machined grip add an elegant design that ideally matches the camera.

On the move —5-axis Dual I.S. and 5-axis Body I.S.

Ideal for capturing life on the go, the LUMIX GX9 integrates a 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer), combining body and lens stabilization to gain more powerful handshake correction. The 5-axis Dual I.S. works in both photo and motion picture recording, including 4K video from wide to telephoto. It is also beneficial even in low light situations, and makes it possible to use a 4-stop slower shutter speed*. The astonishing power of the 5-axis Body I.S. corrects shake for all lenses, even those not equipped with O.I.S. * Based on the CIPA standard [Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=60 mm(35 mm camera equivalent f=120 mm), when H-FS12060 is used.

Fast AF with DFD Technology

Panasonic's DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology* instantly calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels, and achieves ultra-high-speed AF. Also, the LUMIX GX9 has tuned AF precision to follow moving objects and shoot in dim lighting with more precise AF performance. This system results in faster AF speeds up to approximately 0.07 seconds** and a burst shooting speed with AFC of 6 frames per second. A 9 frames per second burst shooting with AFS is also possible. * Contrast AF with DFD technology works only with Panasonic Micro Four Thirds lenses. ** In AFS, at wide-end with H-FS14140 (CIPA).

Functions for night-time shooting

Live View Boost The display is brightened by lowering the frame rate and increasing the gain. This lets you shoot while framing, even in extremely dark situations. MF Assist 20x The MF Assist display has been enlarged up to 20x. Accurate focusing is possible even on tiny objects like stars.

Monochrome options

L. Monochrome D is a new monochrome mode in Photo Style that features even finer gradations. Along with Monochrome and L. Monochrome, it gives you the dynamic control to help take black-and-white expressiveness to the next level. In addition, each of these modes can be combined with Grain Effect at Low, Standard, or High level. When you have the appeal of monochrome film at your fingertips with rich black tones and grainy textures, even ordinary scenes can become something remarkable.

Remote Control — Bluetooth 4.2 & Wi-Fi®

Bluetooth 4.2 (Low Energy) enables shutter release and video record Start / Stop without physically touching the camera. It also enables full-time connection between camera and smartphone with low energy consumption. After shooting, it automatically switches to Wi-Fi connection, transferring data to your smartphone. You can use 'Panasonic Image App' for Android / iOS to control shutter and other settings. ・The Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Logo is a certification mark of Wi-Fi Alliance®. ・The Bluetooth® word mark and logos are registered trademarks owned by Bluetooth SIG, Inc. and any use of such marks by Panasonic Corporation is under license.

Never Miss the Perfect Moment — 4K PHOTO

Our 4K PHOTO feature lets you capture the perfect moment by selecting a frame from a video sequence (shot at 30 frames per second) in camera, and saving it as an individual high-res image with approximately 8-megapixel resolution. Simply shoot, select and save, to make those fleeting moments unmissable.

4K PHOTO Auto Marking

Choose your best shots, whether it's a bird taking flight, a balloon bursting, or a person glancing backward, the camera detects the motion or your subject's face and automatically sets a marker. When selecting shots, you can quickly skip to that sequence.

4K PHOTO Sequence Composition

Catch the trajectory of a dynamic action in a single photo then simply choose the frames that you want from the 4K PHOTO file to compose them into an action-packed shot.

4K Video — 4x the pixel count of FHD

Whether you are watching movies or editing videos, 4K delivers a far more intense viewing experience than you have seen before. Its native resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels is 4x larger than Full HD, resulting in a much higher level of detail. ・When recording videos in 4K, use a card rated as UHS Speed Class 3.
