Among the growing lineup of Panasonic mirrorless digital camera, the compact GX9 almost got lost given that it succeeds a flagship camera without being one itself. With a similar rangefinder-style as the GX8 which introduced image-stabilization to Panasonic mirrorless, the new GX9 is a much more compact digital camera which weighs 50% less than its predecessor! As it shrunk, the GX9 lost the weatherproof build of the GX8 yet gained many more features and capabilities.

The new Panasonic GX9 fits a 20 megapixels Four-Thirds CMOS sensor without Anti-Alias Filter in one of the smallest bodies to feature an electronic viewfinder, while improving the 5-axis image-stabilization system to 4-stops of efficiency. Despite being so small, the GX9 packs a huge amount of features including a rare tilting EVF with large 0.7X magnification.

Neocamera just published a detailed review of the Panasonic GX9 which takes a good look at this camera in terms of usability, ergonomics and performance. Be sure to see the gallery of full-resolution images and comparison with the GX8 to truly appreciate the improvements brought by the GX9.
