Pana­sonic Lu­mix DC-GF9K

Selfie Gear

HWM (Philippines) - - Gear - by Ciara Alar­con

When a smart­phone is not enough, a mir­ror­less cam­era might be the right gear to use that could step up your self­ies.

re­cently, our team had a chance to try the lat­est dig­i­tal sin­gle lens mir­ror­less cam­era of Pana­sonic – the Lu­mix DC-GF9K. through our var­i­ous tests, we could say that the brand’s lat­est of­fer­ing is worth more than self­ies. In fact, you might as well chan­nel your “in­ner blog­ger” and el­e­vate your so­cial me­dia feed through the pho­tos pro­duced by this snap­per.

Gone are the days when car­ry­ing a cam­era also means hav­ing to bring a bulky de­vice. With its com­pact body, the Lu­mix DC-GF9K is easy to han­dle and is con­ve­nient enough to bring with you every time. It is dressed up with leather-tone and metal­lic ma­te­ri­als, giv­ing the de­vice a stylish de­sign that could match any life­style.

Apart from its trendy and so­phis­ti­cated look, it also fea­tures user-friendly con­trols that let our team shoot pho­tos with­out hav­ing trou­bles.

As a selfie-cen­tric cam­era, it is equipped with a 180-de­gree tiltable mon­i­tor to make sure that tak­ing self­ies won’t also take too much of your time. Its mon­i­tor has static touch con­trol too. It comes with var­i­ous fea­tures, in­clud­ing hands-free shut­ter modes, back­ground con­trol mode, and panorama fea­tures that worked well dur­ing our tests. It has va­ri­ety of beauty func­tions such as the beauty re­touch mode, en­abling users to make their skin look smoother and make their face look slim ef­fort­lessly.

the Lu­mix DC-GF9K al­lows users to share their cap­tured im­ages on so­cial me­dia with its easy Wi-fi im­age shar­ing fea­ture. through the pana­sonic Im­age App, we never had to worry about trans­fer­ring files on our other de­vices or smart­phones. In fact, this en­ables us to save more time than our usual rou­tine in shar­ing pho­tos.

Dur­ing our tests, our team used the cam­era as our pri­mary de­vice. to bet­ter check its im­age qual­ity, we took num­bers of shot with dif­fer­ent sub­jects un­der var­i­ous light con­di­tions. With Lu­mix 4K photo fea­ture, the Lu­mix DC-GF9K al­lowed us to cap­ture im­ages at 30fps and save them as 8-megapixel high-res­o­lu­tion pho­tos.

the Lu­mix DC-GF9K can pro­duce clear im­ages, how­ever, we no­ticed that it has the ten­dency to be­come too sat­u­rated when the sub­ject is ex­posed to sun­light. Also, it couldn’t elim­i­nate im­age noise when we took pho­tos in places with bad light­ing.

the Lu­mix DC-GF9K lasted for three days when we didn’t take much pho­tos. but with con­tin­u­ous us­age, it lasted for al­most 13 hours. It took two hours to fully recharge.
