Panasonic Announces New Rugged-Design Hybrid Mirrorless Camera

Panasonic has introduced a rugged-design Digital Single Lens Mirrorless camera, the LUMIX G95.

The camera features high mobility for field use and a host of functions and technologies for both photo and video.

The Lumix G95’s high-picture quality and 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor without low-pass filter attain maximum performance with both lens and Venus Engine to render natural, high-precision images.

The 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) 2 effectively suppresses blurring to enable a 5-stop slower shutter speed by combining the O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer, 2-axis) and B.I.S. (Body Image Stabilizer, 5-axis) to take full advantage of both stabilisation systems.

Users will enjoy blur-free photo and video shooting in both wide angle and telephoto, even in low-light situations.

The Contrast AF System features DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology and excels in both speed and accuracy by exchanging digital signals between camera and lens at a maximum of 240 fps, resulting in ultra-fast auto-focusing of approximately 0.07 sec.

Burst shooting performance is also improved to achieve 9 fps (AFS/MF) / 6 fps (AFC) up to 600 (JPEG) / 30 (RAW) images or more.

A variety of AF functions, including Face/Eye Detection AF, Pinpoint AF, One-shot AF and advanced Low Light AF enhance usability to comply with wide-ranging shooting situations.

External components of the LUMIX G95 have additionally been redesigned to enhance intuitive one-hand operation and quickly responds to the photographer’s intention.

It integrates an OLED LVF (Live View Finder) with 2360K-dot high resolution in approximately 1.48x / 0.74x (35mm camera equivalent) magnification capability.

The free-angle large 3.0-inch LCD rear monitor with approximately 1240K-dot resolution provides a touch control system, making shooting at high and low angles easier.

A host of advanced video functions make the LUMIX G95 a true hybrid camera.

In addition to 4K video recording capability in 3840×2160 at 30p or 24p in MP4, it handles real-time image output to an external monitor/recorder via HDMI, while also recording video.

High Speed Video lets users record slow motion video in Full HD at 120 fps (1/4x), 90 fps (1/3x) and 60 fps (1/2x). What’s more, 4:2:0 / 8-bit log recording is available with the pre-installed V-Log L.

The 3.5mm microphone jack and newly added headphone socket accommodate sophisticated sound recording needs.

With LUMIX 4K PHOTO users can capture fleeting photo opportunities at 30 fps in 8-megapixel equivalent resolution to save as high-resolution images.

Auto Marking and Sequence Composition are included in addition to Post Focus, Focus Stacking, Light Composition and 4K Live Cropping to help make 4K PHOTO more creative and easier to use.

The LUMIX G95 includes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi® connectivity to offer a more flexible shooting experience and easily share images instantly.

Bluetooth 4.2 (called BLE: Bluetooth Low Energy) compatibility enables constant connection with a smartphone or tablet with minimum power consumption.

The camera’s battery can be recharged either via AC or USB according to the users’ convenience.

The Battery Grip DMW-BGG1 (sold separately) empowers comfortable, longer-time shooting.
