Panasonic Wins the Prestigious 70th Annual Technology and Engineering Emmy® Award for the Pioneering Development of the Single-Chip Color Camera

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) recognized that Panasonic’s core contribution in the development of single-imager color video camera was the “color difference line-sequential” color filter array.

  • For instance, Panasonic’s current AK-UC4000 studio camera system abandons three-chip architecture in favor of large and well-proven cinema-style imagers along with internal expansion optics that allow the UC4000 to utilize 2/3” optics in a way that is transparent to the user and produce cinema level performance in a broadcast camera.

Panasonic Canada: Rugged, Very Lightweight LUMIX G95, a Hybrid Mirrorless Camera for One-handed Shooting in Heavy Field Use: 5-axis Dual I.S. 2, 4K Photo/4K Video, Large LVF, Real-time Image Output, Weather-resistant, Captures Fast Moving Subject Just In-focus Via Fast AF, Face/Eye Detection AF, Pinpoint AF, One-shot AF, Advanced Low Light AF, & More

The Panasonic LUMIX G95 (G90 and G91 in certain Panasonic regions) is a compact and lightweight Micro Four Thirds mirrorless (or what Panasonic calls a Digital Single Lens Mirrorless, DSLM) camera. It is handsomely designed, is weather-resistant and is aimed to users who want to take both high quality photos and videos — in other words, it is an all-in-one do-everything quality stills/video hybrid mirrorless camera.

The following video presents Unforgettable moments with LUMIX G90 and Cynthia Bil in Morocco:

The LUMIX G95 features a new 20.3-MP Four Thirds Digital Live MOS Sensor without low-pass filter for sharp photos. It can shoot continuously at 9 fps with AF-S (6 fps with AF-C). An improved Contrast AF System uses Depth From Defocus technology to allow ultra-fast focus lock in as little as 0.07 sec. Other auto-focus functions include Face/Eye Detection AF, Pinpoint AF, One-shot AF and advanced Low Light AF.

The LUMIX G95 has 5-axis In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS). A Dual IS 2 feature will combine the in-body IS and optical IS stabilization found in compatible lenses to reduce camera shake by up to five stops.

The OLED Live View Finder is still at 2360K-dot high resolution but the large 3.0-inch fully articulating Touch panel LCD rear monitor has an improved 1.24M-dot resolution.

For those who prefer direct external controls, there are buttons for exposure, ISO and white balance. The grip has been redesigned to withstand heavy field use and provides a more stable, comfortable one-handed hold. The rugged front structure is composed of a magnesium alloy full diecast front frame. The body construction is splash- and dust-resistant thanks to sealing in the joints and around the dials and buttons. There is also a built-in pop-up flash with a sync speed of 1/200 sec.

Video is captured in 4K @ 30/24P (with 1.25x crop) up to the capacity of your memory card. It provides built-in V-LogL gamma profile (8-bit) and real-time image output. Other video features include 4K photo capture and a Full HD 120 fps high-speed mode for slow motion replay. Besides the mic socket, there is now a 3.5mm headphone socket to plug in an optional headphone so you can monitor your audio.

A practical and popular feature is the Live View Composite mode that lets you view and assess a long exposure shot as it is being captured so you can stop when you deem the exposure is correct instead of relying on hit and miss long exposure shooting.

Panasonic Lumix G95 with the optional battery grip

Though the battery has a CIPA rating of only 290 shots (typical for mirrorless cameras), switch to the Power Save LVF mode for about 900 shots per charge. Add the optional battery grip with a second battery to double battery life. A micro-USB socket allows the camera to be conveniently recharged over USB whether plugged into an electrical outlet or from a portable power bank. It can also be directly powered over USB. There is a single SD card slot which supports high-speed UHS-II media.

The LUMIX G95 should prove to be a versatile camera for both indoors and outdoors still and video shooting in all weather situations (of course, when paired with a weather-resistant lens). It is compact, very lightweight, rugged, with a more comfortable larger grip. It has lots of great lenses and, at its price point, should prove to be a very attractive option for Vloggers.
