The design that takes some getting used to can also be found on the smaller sister, which is, however, somewhat more sparsely equipped. In contrast to the latter, the zoom on the GS-9 has an extended telephoto range (up to 110 mm) and the fastest shutter speed is 1/1000 sec. instead of the meagre 1/300 on the GS-7.
However, the GS-9 (which was launched in 1990) differs most from the 7 model by a special feature: the possibility of “fully automatic image composition”. This means that the camera also tries to automatically set the desired image section, i.e. the intended subject should be “in the picture” by adjusting the focal length accordingly. This is similar to the portrait programme in digital cameras and works amazingly well. Nevertheless, I’m glad that you can switch off this automatic function, I prefer to determine the image detail myself.
In addition to the “standard composition programme”, where the automatic zoom is switched on, there is also a programme for landscape and group shots, as well as one for landscape shots and for sports, portrait and close-up shots.
the optical performance is excellent and it’s fun to put your right hand through the strap and hold this recorder up to your eye.
The GS-9 is a typical representative of the so-called bridge cameras, the concept of which can still be found today in particularly high-zoom digital cameras.
