The Everyday Sling might just be the perfect pack for not carrying too much gear, combining comfort with Peak Design's signature modern style.
Panasonic's Lumix DC-GX9 is a compact, rangefinder-styled camera that, in many ways, is especially well-suited for street and travel photographers. The design is handsome and understated, it comes with a 20 megapixel Four Thirds sensor and its standout feature is a tilting electronic viewfinder that is really handy, but not without its own caveats.
The GX9 is well-built and comes with a robust and customizable array of controls. Great JPEG colors and the addition of a L. Monochrome D setting (basically, a high-contrast black-and-white mode) will be fun and useful for users that desire high quality images without having to process Raw files - though the GX9's Raw files are awfully nice, too.

The GX9 is something of a blend of Panasonic's preceding Lumix GX8 and GX80/GX85/GX7 Mk II (what that camera is called depends on which market you're reading from). Following the original GX7, Panasonic moved the Lumix GX8 slightly upmarket, with a higher price, while introducing the GX85 shortly after at a lower price. As the GX9 sees those two lines recombined, there are some nuances to it feature set that we'll cover thoroughly on the following pages of this review.
The DC-GX9 began shipping in early March 2018 at a price of $999 with the Panasonic Lumix G 12-60mm F3.5-5.6 OIS lens. Other regions will likely have other kits available.
Color choices are black or silver.
The GX9's 20MP sensor now comes without an anti-aliasing filter, and Panasonic's added some neat new features like Sequence Composition.
The GX9 is well-built and compact but has room for a good amount of customizability and controls - plus, of course, that tilting viewfinder.
The GX9 is a versatile camera that will suit a wide range of uses and photographers.
Editor Jeff Keller details his experiences of using the GX9, from the JPEGs to the tilting viewfinder.
The GX9's redesigned shutter eliminates shutter shock, and the JPEG engine gets a big update in terms of color.
Panasonic's Depth-from-Defocus technology makes for speedy and accurate autofocus in a wide range of situations.
With high-bitrate 4K and good-quality 1080p, the GX9 is a great camera for casual video shooters.
We've been updating the GX9's sample gallery steadily over the time we've had it - take a look to see everything from cats to concerts.
We really like the GX9, and find that it's a lovely camera to use. Plentiful controls make for an engaging experience, and the compact size means it's easy to bring with you.

We've added the Panasonic GX9 to this buying guide to to place its specifications and features in context, alongside its competition. When our full review is complete the camera will be considered for an award.
Nominally at least, the new Panasonic Lumix DC-GX9 is the successor to the GX8. But while it has a lot in common with the earlier model, the new camera comes with some serious updates, and a couple of caveats. Here's what you need to know.
The Panasonic GX9 puts the AA-filter-less 20MP sensor of the G9 in a rangefinder-esque body with a tilting EVF, 4K video and a shutter mechanism that claims to reduce shock.
When the Fujifilm X-T2 arrived, it was more than just a modest upgrade to the already impressive X-T1. While the new X-T3 hasn't changed the overall design of the camera, this model is way more than an upgrade; rather, it's a quantum leap.
