Panasonic LUMIX S9 unveiled

Compact full-frame mirrorless camera for creators on the go


Panasonic has launched the LUMIX S9, the smallest and lightest camera in its LUMIX S Series, designed to offer high-quality imaging in a stylish, compact form. With color options including Jet Black, Crimson Red, Dark Olive, and Classical Blue, this new model is aimed at content creators who value both aesthetics and performance.

The LUMIX S9 features a 24.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, akin to the LUMIX S5II, delivering rich detail and natural tones. The camera is equipped with Phase Detection Auto-Focus (PDAF) for superior subject tracking and Active Image Stabilization (I.S.) to reduce blurring from camera shake, making it ideal for handheld shooting.

One of the standout features of the LUMIX S9 is its REAL TIME LUT function, accessible via a dedicated button on the camera body. This allows photographers to apply a range of color styles directly in-camera. The accompanying LUMIX Lab app enhances this functionality by enabling users to create and upload their unique LUT files from a smartphone, streamlining the editing process and expanding creative possibilities.

The LUMIX S9 also introduces MP4 Lite, a new video format optimized for smartphones. This format supports Open Gate recording in 4:2:0 10-bit at 30p/25p, perfect for social media content. Combined with the LUMIX Lab app, users can quickly edit and share videos, taking advantage of the camera’s improved data transfer speeds.

Panasonic emphasizes the seamless experience the LUMIX S9 offers, from capturing moments to sharing them online. The camera’s compact design, weighing only approximately 403g, makes it a convenient choice for creators who are always on the move.

The LUMIX S9 will be available at the end of June 2024, priced at £1499.99/€1699.99. For more details, visit Panasonic LUMIX S9.
