Panasonic introduces the hybrid LUMIX G90

Panasonic’s latest offering is primed for both photos and videos with its 20.3-megapixel sensor and 4K recording

The Panasonic Lumix G90 is targeted at both stills photographers and videographers with its 20.3-megapixel digital Live MOS sensor, a Venus Engine and five-axis Dual I.S.2, combining both OIS and BIS, as well as offering both 4K and Full HD video recording.

The rugged design of the G90 makes it both splash- and dust-resistant, and it has been redesigned to enable easy one-handed operation. Users can now find the exposure, ISO and white-balance buttons located in-line with the top plate, as well as a wheel dial with buttons positioned around it on its rear. It also has customisable dials both on the front and rear.


Its OLED live viewfinder offers a 100% field of view, 2360k-dot resolution and 0.74x magnification, as well as a 1040k-dot OLED touch monitor with free-angle movement.

For video creators, the G90 can record 4K at 30p/25p, Full HD at 60p/50p and also allow slow-motion footage to be captured in Full HD at 120fps, 90fps and 60fps. Real-time image output can be made to an external monitor in 4:2:2/8-bit via HDMI and it also has V-Log pre-installed to offer a wider dynamic range for colour rendering. It also has a 3.5mm microphone jack and a headphone socket.

The G90 features Panasonic’s 4K photo mode, which has a new Auto Marking function to automatically detect frames with changes to the image, as well as Sequence Composition, which combines multiple images into one shot for a fun effect. Other features include post focus, focus stacking, a newly added Live View Composite Recording and photo styles for creative image effects. It also features integrated Bluetooth for image transfer and GPS tagging.


To help extend battery life, a new power-saving function has been introduced that puts the camera to sleep after a set period of inactivity, the camera then awakens when the shutter is half-pressed. On a full charge, the G90 is claimed to last for approximately 900 images.

The Panasonic Lumix G90 is available from June 2019 with a suggested retail price of £899 body only, £1079 with a 12-60mm lens, or £1259 with a 14-140mm lens.
