Panasonic's new mirrorless Micro Four Thirds camera, the Lumix G95, has been redesigned for one-handed operation with a more substantial grip, and three new buttons at the top for adjusting exposure, ISO and white balance.
As it’s designed for heavy use, the camera's front frame is made of magnesium alloy diecast, and the joints, dials and buttons have been sealed to make it splash- and dust-resistant.
Panasonic says the camera has a five-axis Dual Image Stabiliser system that combines optical and body image stabilisations, allowing users to take sharper photos even in low light situations.
Bundled with a kit lens with a 12-60mm focal range and f/3.5-5.6 aperture, the camera uses a 20.3-megapixel sensor with a maximum ISO sensitivity of up to 25,600.
It can record 4K videos at 30fps (frames per second), 25fps and 24fps in MP4 format. Users can also extract frames from the video as an 8-megapixel photo.
The Lumix G95 can output images in real-time to an external monitor via a HDMI connection while recording a video, and shoot slow motion videos in full HD at 120fps, 90fps and 60fps.
It comes with a 3.5mm microphone for better sound quality and a headphone jack so you can listen to the audio while recording.
It also has a Focus Stacking feature, which allows users to select the in-focus area even after shooting. This is achieved by taking multiple shots simultaneously, with different fields of focus for each one.
The Lumix G95 with kit lens is priced at RM4,899 and is available on Panasonic's online store and at authorised retailers.
