    Product Description

    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. *splash/dust resistant doesn't guarantee that damage will not occur if this lens is subjected to direct contact with dust and water.
