Panasonic Lumix G95 Price in US

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G95 is a mid-range mirrorless Micro Four Thirds camera that has a resolution of 20 megapixels. It is equivalent to the G90 and G91, although those sold outside of North America utilize a different type of display. Although Panasonic claims that it was meant to be equally competent at still photography and videography, we do not fully agree with this assessment.

It provides a high degree of direct control, a touchscreen that can be flipped out, and in-body stabilization, which is a rare combination at this time in the market’s development. This alone is enough to make it an appealing enthusiast camera for still photography, but the fact that it has such a severe video crop compromises its credentials as a video-making device.

Panasonic Lumix G95 Price in USA

In North America, the G95 is only available in the form of a bundle that includes the 12-60mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH Power OIS zoom lens. This combo will cost you around $1199, which is a premium of $200 above the G85 package that is comparable in every other way.

Other than that, the G90, which features an OLED back panel rather than an LCD one, will be available body only for the price of £899 or with the 12-60mm lens for the price of £1079.

According to Panasonic, the G95 (or G90/G91, depending on where you reside) is meant to be placed below the G9 but does not take the place of the G85/G80. It is unquestionably an improvement over the G85, with an increased number of buttons, a bigger body, the inclusion of a headphone plug, and a price increase of $200. These features all indicate toward a more ambitious design. When compared to the G85, it is impossible to picture anyone being positive that just one of these cameras is meant for them. Because of this, and despite Panasonic’s promises to the contrary, we have a strong suspicion that the G85 will be discreetly discontinued after the present supply has been depleted.

On the still photography side of things, it boasts a sensor with 20 megapixels, comparable shooting rates to those of the G85, and a buffer that will fill up faster due to the bigger files.

The fact that it is the first camera in the main ‘G’ series to be provided with V-LogL recording lends credence to Panasonic’s claim that it is as as capable of capturing video as it is still images. The company’s marketing for the product emphasizes the versatility of the device (and without having to pay extra for it, as GH4 and GH5 buyers had to). Sadly, the actuality does not entirely live up to this expectation: a hefty crop makes it substantially less usable.

In light of the fact that the G9 is capable of recording oversampled 4K footage using the full width of its sensor, we are forced to draw the conclusion that the lack of ‘6K Photo’ modes and the video crop are due to a lack of processing power or the utilization of a sensor that is less sophisticated.

9Expert Score
Awesome

Even though it doesn’t really excel in any one area, the Panasonic Lumix DC-G95/G90 is a solid all-around mirrorless camera that you may choose from. It has a very high build quality, with plenty of direct controls, in-body image stabilization, and an electronic viewfinder that is far bigger than those found on its competitors. The image quality is excellent, despite being inferior to that of its competitors that employ bigger sensors. When there is sufficient natural light, the video’s quality is satisfactory; otherwise, it suffers. In addition, while shooting 4K video with a crop factor of 1.25x, your lens option for wide-angle video recording is not constrained in any way.
