Panasonic G9 at the Bronx Zoo

This video was shot yesterday using the Panasonic G9 & Olympus 12-100 Pro lens in the Natural mode. No color correction in post, SOC. Most of the video was shot using the improved CAF of the G9. A few shots, where the subject was behind tree limbs & branches or behind the scratched glass of some exhibits, AF lock or MF was used. Interestingly, where I had an issue with AF, my wife's RX100 VI's PDAF had the same issue. This only pertained to a couple of shots, but it was interesting nonetheless.

One thing I should mention is that the OIS of the Olympus lens is probably the best I’ve ever used. The lens is heavy, but in use it’s ergonomics are actually great. A ring on the lens enables you to instantly transition to MF by simply pulling it towards you.

I agree. The heaviness actually helps in keeping steady.

It’s also very nice optically. Sharp edge to edge.

There's a big firmware update for the G9 that just rolled out. Among other features related to stills (and it's a wonderful stills camera), it adds:

* 10bit 4:2:2 internal up to 30fps
* 10bit 4:2:2 up to 60fps via an external recorder
* HLG recording
* Variable frame rate recording
* Animal detection for AF

This brings the camera, video feature wise, almost on par with the GH5, only the G9 has better AF. There is also a $100 upgrade that gives you V-Log L for those that like to grade.

Thanks, Chris. Yes, the G9 does have ETC and 2x digital (as well as 4x). Several of the clips in my video were shot using ETC since it’s visually lossless.
