Panasonic has launched a new mid-range interchangeable lens camera today called the Lumix GX9. It’s going to be available for purchase starting next month with a 12-60 non-Leica kit lens. The company is going to sell a body-only model but in markets other than the United States. It packs powerful internals in a compact body and even brings a new monochrome shooting mode.
Panasonic has launched four new OLED TV models across two ranges at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 in Las Vegas. They take the baton from the company’s 2017 OLED screens that won accolades for their picture quality and performance. The new models are available in 65 inch and 55 inch sizes. They feature new OLED panels coupled with Panasonic’s latest Hollywood-tuned HCX video processor.
Despite cars being on the road for as long as they have, you couldn’t really say that we’ve perfected the design, as improvements can always be made to things like the engine, the aerodynamics, tires, and so on. The same is doubly true for electric cars which have been around for much less time.
If shooting video is something you’re interested in, there are a variety of cameras out there that can get the job done, such as compacts, DSLRs, mirrorless, and so on. However in recent times, Panasonic’s Lumix GH5 has been the one gaining a fair amount of attention, especially when it comes to 4K videos.
With our smartphone cameras getting smarter and more capable with every new release, the question we’re sure many are wondering is if it has the potential to replace cameras completely. Perhaps if we’re talking about those low-end, cheap compact cameras, but what about the higher-end models, like DSLRs or mirrorless cameras?
If you’re in the market for a new digital camera with an interchangeable lens, then you will be interested to learn that Panasonic has a new camera for you in the form of the Panasonic Lumix G9. This is the company’s latest camera offering which also appears to borrow certain features from the Lumix GH5, which is obviously a good thing.
Our smartphone cameras these days are becoming more sophisticated not just in the hardware department, but also in the software side of things. This is because as our phones are so thin, smartphone makers have had to turn to a variety of solutions to achieve the effect and quality that one might expect from a dedicated camera.
While attending CEATEC 2017 in Tokyo, I stopped by the Panasonic Center (Tokyo) where the company has 15k square meters (~162k square feet) of demo space and offices. I had been there some years ago and wanted to check the latest demos and concepts that Panasonic is working on. There is a lot going on there, but five items have caught my attention, here they are:
[CEATEC 2017] If you’re trying to go on a diet, whether it is to gain muscle or to lose fat, taking into account the calories you take is essential. There are apps out there that help you keep track, and for the most part most food makers offer up the amount of calories that comes in a serving of whatever you are eating.
When it comes to turntables, DJs and vinyl collectors are probably familiar with the brand Technics. For those who have fond memories about the brand, you’ll be pleased to learn that Technics has recently taken the wraps off a set of brand new turntables in the form of the SP-10R.
#IFA2017 – Have you ever hated getting up from your chair in the room and have to walk over to the kitchen just to get a drink or a snack? Wouldn’t it be much more awesome if your drinks/snacks were delivered to you instead? While getting a butler might be too pricey for some, the folks at Panasonic might have a more hi-tech solution.
Falling asleep while behind the wheel isn’t as rare an occurrence as one might think, and it is very dangerous not just for the driver, but for the passengers in the car, and also other drivers on the road. In the past we have seen companies try to develop technology to detect sleepy drivers, and recently Panasonic is trying their hand at it as well.
While our smartphones make for great cameras that we can pull out of our pockets and snap photos while on the go, sometimes there is still a need for a “proper” camera. However if you’d rather not lug around a DSLR or invest into a mirrorless system and its interchangeable lenses, a compact camera is probably you next best bet.
When it comes to measuring heart rate, usually the person getting measured will be required to wear some kind of attachment to their body. Whether it be more specialized equipment you find at hospitals, or a smartwatch that comes with a heart rate monitor, or a chest strap that athletes wear to measure performance, some kind of equipment has to be worn.
