Panasonic announce new Lumix G90 hybrid mirrorless camera

Panasonic’s latest mirrorless camera is the upgrade to Lumix G80 from a few years ago. The much needed upgrade aims the devices at both photographers and videographers with a lot of improvements to the video side of business.

The G90 features a 20.3-megapixel Micro 4/3 sensor and new
Venus Engine. It supports up to 9fps shooting or 6pfs with continuous autofocus and features 5-axis sensors for stabilization. The video side of things allow up to 4K@30fps or 1080p@120fps. The AF system is contrast-depth-form-defocus which works as fast as 0.7 seconds to focus correctly. Cropping for video is at a rather high x1.26, which can be a deal breaker for some, and higher than the G80 (x1.18) from 2016.

The design hasn’t changed much and its very much DSLR-esque. We have lots of controls on the back and top of the device for added tactile control. Panasonic include a V-Log L setting to boost dynamic range for better video editing. The display is flip around for the more vlogger style shots that this camera is aimed at. We also get a headphone jack, along with the usual microphone jack as well. Again, making video use an easier subject with the G90. Weight for the G90 comes in at 536 grams.

The Panasonic Lumix G90 will launch this June and pricing starts at €1,069 for the body–only or €1,259 with a 12-60mm kit lens. You can check more information on the official product page for the Lumix G90
