The Panasonic Lumix DC-G95 (comparable to the G90 and G91 sold outside North America) is a mid-range 20MP Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera. Panasonic says it's designed to be equally adept at both stills and video, though we don't wholly agree.

It offers an extensive degree of direct control, a flip-out touchscreen and in-body stabilization: a combination that's unusual at this point in the market. This is enough to make it an attractive enthusiast stills camera but a significant video crop undermines its video-making credentials.

Key Specifications:

  • 20MP Four Thirds CMOS sensor
  • 9 fps shooting with AF-S, 6 fps with AF-C
  • UHD 4K at 30 and 24p (25p for the G90)
  • Unlimited video capture (up to capacity of card)
  • Headphone and Mic sockets
  • V-LogL gamma profile (8-bit only)
  • L. Monochrome D (high-contrast mono mode)
  • 4K Photo mode with auto marking and sequence composition
  • Live View Composite mode for multi-shot long exposure images

The G95 is only being offered as a kit in North America with the 12-60mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH Power OIS zoom. This combination will set you back around $1199, which is a $200 premium over the comparable G85 kit.

Elsewhere, the G90, which has an LCD, rather than OLED rear screen, will be sold body only for £899 or £1079 with the 12-60mm.
