Test and Review blog is growing each day and we definitely have higher demand for better quality digital equipment. That is why we decided to start with freshening up our camera selection, starting with the premium mirrorless digital camera Panasonix Lumix GX9.

With so many options on the digital camera market it was really a tough choice and buying the GX9 happened pretty much emotionally after comparing it with models from Sony, Fuji, Olympus, Canon and Nikon.

So, here are our top 5 reasons that made us buy the Lumix GX9 camera:

  1. Image quality - rated as one of the best mirrorless for street photography. It is pretty capable even with the stock lenses 12-60 that were included in the DC-GX8M kit (comes with battery pack as well).
  2. Stabilization - the 5-Axis Dual I.S. is a real game changer in this class. In one of the amazing video reviews of the GX9 compared to the Sony awesome (and also more expensive) A6500, the Lumix G9 performed as a class leading device. Just take a quick at the video:

We already had the chance to test the stabilization in normal photo shooting, handheld Full HD and 4k video and it really did an awesome job. Soon we will upload couple of sample videos with more details.
   3. Compact size - Panasonic Lumix GX9 is not the smallest camera in the segment but it definitely is quite small for its capabilities. It weighs just 450 grams and measures 124 x 72.1 x 46.8 mm in size.

  4. 4k vido recording - almost all of the alternatives that we liked in the same price category were pretty good but none could shoot proper 4k video. That is one big reason to buy the GX9. It records adequate 4k Ultra HD video clips with up to 20 fps.

  5. Price - Panasonic Lumix GX9 is great value for money camera for the street photographer. We bought our DC-GX9M set with the LUMIX G VARIO 12-60mm /F3.5-5.6 ASPH./ lens with POWER O.I.S. and also an extra battery, all for under 800 Euros. One of our alternatives was the Sony Alpha A6400 but it was at least some 20-30% more expensive.

Other thoughts

So far I would say we are really happy with the purchase of Lumix GX9. It is truly a capable mirrorless micro four thirds camera with compact size so I hope we would get as many pictures and videos as possible.

Of course the GX9 has some some downsides and minor cons which we will share in our full camera review later on.
