Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Focal point
Included with the camera body is the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. focal point; a 24-120mm comparable zoom crossing wide-point to short fax viewpoints. This adaptable optic, which has been planned as a team with Leica, highlights a progression of aspherical and extra-low scattering components to enormously lessen circular and chromatic distortions all through the zoom range. Its straight engine offers fast and calm self-adjust execution while the POWER Optical Image Stabilizer framework assists with limiting the presence of camera shake. Furthermore, matching the camera body’s plan, the focal point is likewise sprinkle, residue, and freeze-verification to empower its utilization in attempting natural circumstances.
225-Area Advanced Depth-From-Defocus AF System
For sped-up self-adjust execution, an Advanced DFD (Depth-From-Defocus) innovation is utilized to rapidly work out the distance to subjects and change the centering position in just 0.04 seconds, which empowers consistent shooting up to 20 fps with nonstop AF. This difference discovery type center strategy benefits both still and video recording modes, as well as subject following applications where the subject tone, size, and movement vectors are utilized to insightfully lock onto the moving subjects and guarantee exact concentration. The responsiveness and speed can be acclimated to additionally further develop execution with specific subjects. It likewise includes 225 AF regions, which give astounding command over where the camera will center. Furthermore, supporting working in low-light circumstances, a Starlight AF highlight empowers precise AF execution down to – 4 EV.
80MP High Resolution Mode
By utilizing sensor-shift adjustment innovation the G9 can utilize a High Resolution Mode to catch and accumulate eight separate pictures to make a solitary 80MP crude record. This framework makes a more profoundly itemized and variety exact picture than a solitary shot alone can deliver and can make a picture with a 10368 x 7776 goal.
