Panasonic Announces New G95 Mirrorless Camera

  By Kaitlyn Kerr

 

Panasonic has announced the new G95, an update to the popular G85 mirrorless camera which sits in the middle of their mirrorless camera lineup.

The camera features an improved 20.3 megapixel micro four-thirds sensor with no optical low-pass filter, 5-axis Dual Image Stabilization with compatible Power OIS lenses, and a redesigned body which more closely resembles the GH5, and is easy to operate with a single hand.

The G95 has face and eye-detect autofocus, and a 9 frame-per-second burst mode (6 fps with continuous focus). Focus can be locked in as little as 0.07 seconds.

From a video standpoint, the camera has both a microphone jack and a newly added headphone jack, as well as Panasonic’s V-logL already installed, which will provide up to 12 stops of dynamic range. The camera will record 4K/30p internally, and has the capability to simultaneously output a real-time image in 4:2:2 8-bit to an external monitor. For slow-mo capabilities, the camera can also record up to 120 fps in 1080p Full HD.

The camera’s battery life is rated at 900 shots per CIPA standards, and will have an optional battery grip (DMW-BGG1) available to double that. It also can be charged via USB-C, allowing for even more options when travelling or running long shoot days.

Additional specifications:

  • Maximum ISO: 25,600
  • 20.3 megapixel sensor
  • Internal buffer handles up to 30 RAW images or 600 JPG images
  • 4K Photo Mode
  • Post-focus photo mode
  • Live composite recording

The camera is expected to be available in a kit configuration with the 12-60mm f3.5-5.6 lens at a retail price of $1799.99, and is available for preorders now.
