Just two months after unveiling the Lumix TZ95 (ZS80) and Lumix FZ1000 II cameras, Panasonic has introduced the LUMIX G95 Hybrid Mirrorless Camera featuring 5-Axis Dual image stabilisation and 4K Video support. The Lumix G95 camera is a successor to last year’s Lumix G85 mirrorless camera and will be available for an asking price of $1,199 (approx. Rs 83,000).
The Panasonic Lumix G95 comes with a 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine to render natural, high-precision images. There’s a 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabiliser) 2 technology which suppresses blurring to enable a 5-stop slower shutter speed to take full advantage of both stabilisation systems.
The camera comes with a Depth From Defocus technology which calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating images with different sharpness levels and also consulting the data of optical characteristics of the lens. The camera can thus achieve high-speed autofocus approximately at 0.07 sec and a high-speed burst shooting at 9 fps (AFS) / 6 fps (AFC).
The LUMIX G95 has a large LVF (Live View Finder) with a high magnification ratio of approximately 1.48x / 0.74x (35mm camera equivalent). The high-precision, high-speed OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) display features 2,360K-dot high resolution and 100% field of view. Adopting a static-type touch control system, the large 3.0-inch LCD rear monitor with 1240K-dot high resolution features free-angle shooting to up to 250-degrees.
Additionally, the LUMIX G95 is capable of recording 4K video in 3840×2160 at 30p or 24p in addition to the full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 60p videos with practical full-time AF. It also lets users record slow-motion video in Full HD at 120 fps (1/4x), 90 fps(1/3x) and 60 fps (1/2x). The camera comes with a Power Saving LVF function which when enabled activates sleep mode to save battery consumption.
Connectivity options include 3.5mm microphone jack for input, a headphone socket for sound output, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 2.4GHz and a USB for charging.
