Panasonic LUMIX G95 | Rugged-Design Hybrid Mirrorless Camera Built for High Picture Quality Featuring 5-Axis Dual I.S. 2 and 4K Video Technology
The Panasonic LUMIX G95 Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) camera incorporates a Four Thirds 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor without a low-pass filter for maximum performance. The LUMIX G95 utilizes the Micro Four Thirds lens mount standard, ideal for hybrid photographers and video bloggers (vlogging or vlog). The LUMIX G95 incorporates an advanced 5-axis Dual I.S.2 (Image Stabilizer) for even more powerful and effective blurring suppression. Combining an O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer, 2-axis) and B.I.S.(Body Image Stabilizer, 5-axis), it compensates for larger movements. The LUMIX G95 also integrates an OLED LVF (Live View Finder) with 2360K-dot high resolution in approx. 1.48x / 0.74x (35mm camera equivalent) magnification capability.
A Venus Engine in the LUMIX mirrorless cameras is more capable of tracking moving subjects, and prevent out-of-focus shots even when the subject is fast-moving or when an obstacle cuts across in front of the subject. Newly added AF Sensitivity mode lets the user set the tracking sensitivity according to the shooting situation. The popular LUMIX free-angle 3.0-inch large OLED rear monitor (approximately 1,040K-dot resolution) adopts a touch control system, making shooting in high and low angles easier. The V-Log L is pre-installed in the LUMIX G95 for exceptional flexibility and wider dynamic range for color grading in the post-production process, and V-Log L features log characteristics with 12 stops of dynamic range. The LUMIX G95 mirrorless digital camera boasts a rugged design with a front structure composed of a magnesium-alloy, full-diecast front frame. Plus, splash*/dust-resistant construction with sealed joints, dials and buttons.
LUMIX G95 - The Hybrid Creators Camera
The LUMIX G95 features a host of functions for shooting photos and videos in various situations with excellent mobility.
• FOUR-THIRDS SENSOR– 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor without low-pass filter attains maximum performance (ISO 25600 Max sensitivity)
• LUMIX G MFT CAMERA LENS – Easy-to-use LUMIX G 12-60mm 3.5-5.6 standard focal for Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount digital mirrorless cameras
• 4K V-LOG L VIDEO – 4K 24/30p video capture plus pre-installed V-Log L offers exceptional flexibility in post-production, featuring log characteristics with 12 stops of dynamic range
• 4:2:2 HDMI OUTPUT – Real-time image output to an optional external monitor in 4:2:2 / 8-bit via an optional micro HDMI cable simultaneously while recording video
• MIC JACK – 3.5mm microphone jack supports external microphone use, such as an optional Panasonic External Stereo/Shotgun Microphone DMW-MS2
3.0-inch Touch Dispaly
Adopting a static-type touch control system, the 3.0-inch OLED rear monitor with 1040K-dot high resolution features free-angle shooting. It tilts up and down by approximately 250-degree to make shooting in either high or low angle even easier.
Featuring a brand new 20.3-megapixel MOS sensor, and a combination of the LUMIX high-performance Venus Engine and removal of the low-pass filter, resolution improves, and moire effects are minimal.
4K Video Performance Plus Vlog L
Unlimited 4K 30p video recording plus pre-installed VLOG L expands creative options. Additionally, it features high-speed video recording at 60, 90, 120 fps and a microphone/headphone jack.
The body's grip provides stability even when shooting with one hand, and frequently used functions like white balance, ISO, and exposure compensation are positioned within easy reach.
Rugged Body for All Conditions
A magnesium alloy front frame and sealing help protect the body, dials, and buttons for a dust/splash-resistant body. (Damage can still occur if subjected to direct contact with dust and water.)
Low-shock, Low-sound Shutter Unit
An electromagnetic shutter drive greatly reduces shutter shock, which improves sharp image capture. Mechanical shutter sound is also minimized for when the situation demands discrete quiet.
Frame shots easily using the high-speed OLED Live Viewfinder (0.74x magnification ratio) or the convenient 3-inch free-angle touch LCD screen (1.240K-dot resolution).
Combining body and lens stabilization tech its 5-Axis Dual I.S. 2 achieves sharp and blur-less images with 5-stop correction power up to the tele-end.
Extended Battery Life
By using two batteries — one in the camera and the other in the Optional LUMIX grip (DMW-BGG1 sold separately) battery life is doubled. The grip also makes vertical angle shooting more comfortable.
USB Power Supply / USB Power Charging
During tethered shooting, a USB connection charges the battery from a portable battery charger or personal computer, a helpful convenience when shooting long videos or during studio photography.
Never Miss the Action
The LUMIX G95 offers high-speed Auto Focus (0.07 sec) using DFD technology (240fps) and enables capture of stunning images even with fast moving subjects.
Remote Control — Bluetooth 4.2 / Wi-Fi
Bluetooth 4.2 (Low Energy) enables shutter release, and video record start/stop via a smartphone or tablet using the Panasonic Image App for Android/iOS for easier social media sharing via Wi-Fi.
Capture the Moment — 4K PHOTO
4K PHOTO pulls the perfect moment from a video sequence shot at 30 fps and saves it as an 8-megapixel-equivalent high-resolution image. Don’t miss those fleeting moments!
4K PHOTO Auto Marking
The Auto Marking function helps you choose your best shots more easily. The camera detects motion or a human face and automatically sets a marker to enhance your creativity.
4K PHOTO Sequence Composition
Sequence Composition makes the 4K PHOTO feature even more creative. A unique stromotion image can be produced by synthesizing multiple 4K PHOTO images.
Post Focus / Focus Stacking
Panasonic's 4K feature enables refocusing of a photo after it is captured, by selecting the in-focus area after shooting with the Post Focus or change the depth of field with Focus Stacking.
In Auto White Balance, a new AWBw retains a reddish tint in addition to conventional AWB (standard) and AWBc (bluish tint).
New Monochrome Options
New L. Monochrome and L. Monochrome D along with the existing Monochrome mode can combine with Grain Effect at Low, Standard, or High, enabling dynamic control for expressive black-and-white images.
Low Light AF
AF for shooting low-light, low-contrast scenes such as evening landscapes. Low Light AF can also shoot down to -4 EV situations with accurate focusing. (At ISO100, F2, AFS. 100% contrast target.)
Live View Boost
The display is brightened allowing improved framing, even in extremely dark situations.
Small amounts of contrast are detected allowing focusing of starlight.
MF Assist 20x
The MF Assist display improves manual focusing of dim, tiny objects like stars.

||** About motion picture recording / 4K PHOTO recording
- Use a card with SD Speed Class with "Class 4" or higher when recording motion pictures in [AVCHD] or [MP4 (under 28Mbps)].
- Use an SD memory card with SD Speed Class with "UHS-I / UHS-II UHS Speed Class 3 (U3)" when recording motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K] [High Speed Video] or [4K PHOTO].
(SD speed class is the speed standard regarding continuous writing.)
- MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K]:
- When using an SDHC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
- When using an SDXC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 96 GB or 3 hours 4 minutes in length, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
- MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [FHD] [HD]:
- You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB or 30 minutes in length, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately.
- When the ambient temperature is high or continuous recording is performed, the camera may stop the recording to protect itself. Wait until the camera cools down.
*** For [4K] video output, use an HDMI cable that has the HDMI logo on it, and that is described as"4K compatible".
