Panasonic G9 vs Canon EOS M6

Does Canon M6 have all the tools to beat G9 or Panasonic G9 makes it way through its raffle like specifications? Yes! This will really be an interesting comparison since both are mirrorless cameras with some outstanding specifications, such as G9 has DFD AF technology, whereas EOS M6 comes with Canon’s trademark Dual Pixel CMOS AF system.

Now let’s go in detail comparison between Panasonic G9 and EOS M6!

Image quality

Canon EOS M6 must be your favorite camera since the camera packs 24.2 Megapixel APS-C sized CMOS sensors, which clearly means that stunning images will be in your kit, no matter where the shooting conditions are. On the other side, Panasonic G9 employs 20.3MP Four third sensor, is looking little dwarf infront of APS-C sized camera.

Panasonic G9 gets much more advantage since comes with new High Resolution mode that superbly produces an 80-megapixel equivalent (10368 x 7776) image by fabricating 8 consecutively shot images while shifting the sensor. This method ensures that without the need for software processing the camera can produce even RAW also along with JPEG. That high resolution photo is ideal for landscape and product photography using a tripod. Meanwhile, Panasonic Eos M6 doesn’t have such technology at the core.

Image stabilization

You should know that unwanted camera shakes are the sure part of shooting that results the image into blurry issue and to eliminate the appearance of those camera shakes a camera should have vibration reduction mechanism. Happily, you can see that Panasonic G9 engineered Dual-IS (image stabilizer) mechanism, which is highly effective to correct camera shakes on different plane with maximum 3.5X wider correction angle at wider end including and keep your images from blur. Moreover, you can get clear handheld shots even in lowlight condition. Actually, Dual I.S. means  both Body I.S. and Lens I.S. work at the same time to take advantage of both stabilizers, allowing for more powerful vibration correction. On the other hand, Canon EOS M6 does also have 5-axis image stabilization but that is restricted to video only.

AF system

The only difference in their AF systems is that Canon EOS M5 employs hybrid AF system (contrast+ Phase) and Panasonic has to work with only contrast detect sensor.But the benefit in working with Panasonic G9 is that its contrast AF system features DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology that quickly calculate the distance to subjects and adjust the focusing position in as little as 0.04 seconds, which is blazing fast. On the other hand, Canon M6 also features Dual Pixel CMOS AF that allows users to acquire smooth and fast focusing results according to their needs. Moreover, G9 features distinctive 225 AF points, allowing the users to choose focus areas as per the specific composition required and with the help of joystick located on the thumb position, they can control it easily. On the other hand M6 comes with 9 fps only.

Shutter speed

If Panasonic G9 in your hand, then whether the fastest moving train or running deer (during wildlife shooting) with fastest shutter speed of 1/32000 sec, you can capture everything including all actions of the desire subjects moving much rapidly. On the other hand, Canon EOS M6 offers only 1/4000 sec of shutter speed (requires much faster shutter speed).

Continuous shooting drive

In Panasonic G9, you can choose continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking up to 20fps, ensuring that you will not miss any action of the target subjects. While Continuous shooting of Canon EOS M6 is restricted to only 9fps only.


 Users of Panasonic G9 can record stunningly smooth, high-resolution QFHD 4K video in 3840×2160 at 60p.  However the G9 is going to be the best since it offers 4K @60fps. Panasonic G9 offers 3480 x 2160p@ 60fps (4K) with no time limit that is really massive and cinematographers would really love the it shoots UHD 4K. On the other hand, Canon EOS M6 offers 1080p @ 60FPS (with time limit). Moreover, Panasonic G9 also added extra video features in the line to give the professional shooters never before experience.


You can take about 400 photos in a single time charge with G9, whereas with Canon EOS M6 you can take around 295 shots at a time.


For image quality, Canon EOS M6 is earning grades, but if you go specification wise then Panasonic G9’s unrivaled video capability lets the cinematographers make the noise and its AF system is an unobtrusive section of the camera that worth the price.
