The Panasonic G9 seems like the start of a big push by Panasonic with serious photographers. By taking the technology developed for video, they have created one of the fastest cameras ever made for sports and wildlife photography… And the video specs aren’t bad either.
Ladies and gentlemen I bring you good news. You can now record video with the shutter button in video mode on the A9.
I wrote for DPReview for a few years contributing video advice and where it was a talking point as on the 5D Mark III and Panasonic GH4, I wrote that part of the review.
DPReview was for me the original trusted authority on digital cameras and it was an honour to work for them but I am really sad at what the site has turned into today.
Aimed at the pro market currently dominated by Canon with the 1D X Mark II and Nikon with the D5, the new Sony Alpha 9 significantly undercuts the traditional $6000 price of the premiere league cameras and brings new technology not yet seen in the full frame camera market, as well as 4K full frame video.
