Panasonic Lumix G9 in Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera

Panasonic Lumix G9 (13)

Panasonic's new Lumix G9 features a 20 megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor, high-speed continuous shooting up to 60fps, plus 4K video recording. Panasonic say it's got the best image quality of any Lumix camera available.

We've been shooting with it, and have full-size JPEG images to share, taken from ISO100 to the maximum ISO speed of ISO25600. We've also included images taken using the multi-shot high-resolution modes, at 40mp and 80mp. Simply click "High Res" to view the full-size images, or read all about the camera in our Panasonic Lumix G9 hands-on preview.

Nope, just seeing your standard ISO and WB shots. Where are the higher res, the non-test shots?

Curiously I note the ISO shots start at ISO 100 - is that the new base ISO of the sensor? If not is there anything to be gained [other than limiting light] to be gained from using the setting?

Hi Chris, the high-res shots are marked "40mp" and "80mp"

We will be adding additional photos as and when we take them.

Base ISO is ISO200, ISO100 is extended.

Thanks Josh. Those high res images are very impressive.
I've handled a G9 demo model. Good to handle and has robust build quality - overall superb. I'm really impressed with the design and its plethora of features. Hard not to like but what matters ultimately is the IQ and here I look forward to seeing more of your samples. This could become a classic camera if the IQ is right.
The night time shots of the train & surrounding area are really good. Was their capture the result of using the Pixel Shift function? I assume they were taken with a tripod.

Yes, any photo that says "40mp" or "80mp" underneath have been taken with the pixel shift High Resolution mode. They were taken with a tripod, as this function will only work when the camera is mounted on a tripod.

The level of detail in those is very impressive. It also confirms my thought that you don't need a lens capable of resolving anything approaching the detail level represented by an 80mp shot - it's more akin to stitching 4 20mp images together. I think it actually uses 6 exposures iirc, so if anything you'd get a bit of additional correction?

On a quick breeze through, the highest ISO real world image seems to be the ISO1000 shot in the railway station? Impressively low levels of noise there, but I'd like to see what it's capable of pushed to higher levels outside of your studio tests.
