New Panasonic Lumix G9 camera to be announced by the end of the year


I received some information that a new Panasonic LUMIX G9 camera is going to be announced by the end of this year:

It will have the same photo quality and photo functions like the GH5. It will not have the same video options. It will have a second display on the top like DSLR cameras. I don't know whether the top display will be LCD or OLED. The new camera is rumored to cost around €1,200 (around $1,400).

Coincidentally, a new post appeared on Fredmiranda forum with a screenshot from a photographer's Facebook post who claimed that he is testing the new Panasonic Lumix G9 camera (Ken Duncan is a Panasonic brand ambassador):


I am not sure if the rumor I posted yesterday is related to the Panasonic Lumix G9 camera.

Here is a recap of the Panasonic Lumix G9 camera rumored specifications:

  • To be announced by the end of this year, available after Christmas
  • Same photo capabilities as the GH5
  • Different video capabilities (compared to the GH5)
  • Second display on top of camera
  • Rumored price: €1,200 (around $1,400)
  • Very fast shooting rate with a large buffer (60 frames burst)
  • 80MB shooting mode - it can stitch multiple pictures (for example 6 pictures can produce 1GB final image)
