Refreshing its Digital Single Lens Mirrorless category of cameras, Panasonic India on Monday launched its rugged-design hybrid mirrorless camera — Lumix G95. The camera comes with a dual kit option — G95H (14-140mm, F3.5-5.6) and G95M Kit (12-60mm, F3.5- 5.6) for Rs 1,09,990 and Rs 94,990, respectively.

The high mobility camera with powerful 4K features and 9fps burst shooting speeds is aimed at addressing the needs of users looking for advanced picture quality, high operating performance and video functions for filming, YouTube and still photography.

“Scaling new heights of product innovation, the new Lumix G95 is a significant addition to Panasonic’s DSLM Lumix range for quality photography and videography. Designed to disrupt the DSLM segment, we see a huge potential for Lumix G series in India,” Sandeep Sehgal, Business Chief, Panasonic India, said in a statement.

With video output limited to 8-bit both internally and externally, the camera comes with the company’s “V-Log L” setting that offers exceptional flexibility and ease during post-production.

The camera also comes with a built-in headphone port, on top of the microphone input that makes it suitable for videographers, and YouTubers. (IANS)

The Indian space agency on Tuesday completed successfully the crucial orbit manoeuvre and put the Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft into the lunar orbit.

According to Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), the Lunar Orbit Insertion (LOI) was completed successfully at 9.02 a.m. as planned using the onboard propulsion system. All the systems of Chandrayaan-2 are healthy.

“The duration of manoeuvre was 1,738 seconds. With this, Chandrayaan-2 was successfully inserted into a lunar orbit. The orbit achieved is 114km X 18,072km,” the ISRO said.

Following this, a series of orbit manoeuvres will be performed on Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft to enable it to enter its final orbit passing over the lunar poles at a distance of about 100 km from the Moon’s surface.

Subsequently, the lander — Vikram — will separate from the Orbiter and enter into a 100km X 30km orbit around the Moon.

“Then, it will perform a series of complex braking manoeuvres to soft land in the South Polar region of the Moon on September 7, 2019,” ISRO said.

The health of the spacecraft is being continuously monitored from the Mission Operations Complex (MOX) at ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) in Bengaluru with support from Indian Deep Space Network (IDSN) antennas at Bylalu, near the Karnataka capital.

The next Lunar bound orbit manoeuvre is scheduled on Wednesday between 12.30-1.30 p.m.

On July 22, the Chandrayaan-2 was injected into an elliptical orbit of 170X45,475 km by India’s heavy lift rocket Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mark III (GSLV Mk III) in a text book style.

The spacecraft comprises three segments – the Orbiter (weighing 2,379 kg, eight payloads), the lander ‘Vikram’ (1,471 kg, four payloads) and rover ‘Pragyan’ (27 kg, two payloads).
