Look Sharp, On The Move.
Thanks to Dual Image Stabilisation* the LUMIX GX9 delivers flawless shooting on the go, without the need for a tripod. Even when using long telelenses, for example to bring your model closer with cool background bookeh effects, your subject stays sharp.
* DUAL IS 1.
Achieve The Perfect Look.

Stunning Moments, Made Unmissable.
Life's most beautiful moments are fleeting. The LUMIX GX9's 4K Photo feature helps you hang on to them. Shoot a film sequence at 30 frames per second, then easily extract any individual frame as a high-resolution image. Or create entirely new moments by combining sequential frames to compose one striking image.
Because you don't want anything to come between you and the shot, the LUMIX GX9 is designed to be intuitive and easy to use, featuring an exposure dial and focus lever for seamless shooting. Creativity without compromise.
