16 Megapixel Live MOS Sensor

The Panasonic Lumix GX85 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera is equipped with a 16 Megapixel Live MOS sensor which delivers stunning photos and razor sharp 4K video. The sensor is capable of capturing rich colours and fine details perfect for prints or playback on your high resolution LCD/LED TV.

No Optical Low-Pass Filter

An upgrade on the previous generation GX7 the optical low pass filter has been eliminated from the imaging sensor to deliver a 10% improvement in the detail of your images. Removal of this low pass filter results in results sharper than ever before with the use of same lenses.

Compact, Lightweight Design

The Micro Four Thirds System on which the whole camera is developed is proven for its versatility and performance. It makes the size of the GX85 considerably smaller and reduces the weight to almost half of a traditional DSLR without compromising on the image quality and features.

5-Axis Sensor-Shift Image Stabilisation

The Lumix GX85 features a 5 axis sensor shift stabilization which can compensate for vibrations caused by hand movement resulting in sharper images and smoother video. The in-body stabilisation works with any lens, equipping you with the convenience to use vintage or adapted lenses without compromising your image quality.

Dual Image Stabilisation

Your photo and video results can be improved further when used in conjunction with compatible Lumix lenses featuring O.I.S. The Dual IS mode helps to compensate for an even broader range of movement and works with stills and even when shooting 4K video.

Intuitive Controls

Ergonomically positioned on the top of the camera, the Mode Dial makes controlling the camera for perfect exposure easy and similar to using your SLR. Using the Thumb Wheel you can vary your exposure settings instantly, while important controls like ISO and White balance are available at the touch of a button. Multiple function buttons can be assigned as shortcuts to a wide range of settings, providing customised shortcuts to complement your specific shooting requirements.

4K UHD Videos

The Panasonic Lumix GX85 can record 4K Ultra-High Definition video at 30 frames per second. The impressive resolution of 4K delivers better creative versatility, allowing you to crop or recompose your shot while maintaining Full HD quality.

4K Photo Mode

The 4K Photo Mode helps you record the entire action sequence of your subject at 30 frames per second and extract the suitable still image in an 8MP JPEG file. The 4K Photo Mode has three options that include 4K Start-Stop, 4K Burst and 4K Pre Capture which can be chosen to suit your shooting requirement.

4K Post Focus

The 4K Post Focus mode combines the GX85's fast focusing and 4K video to create a short 4K video clip of approximately 1 second. In this duration the autofocus scans the frame, changing focus across the entire focal range. Once recorded, your desired point of focus can be then chosen by simply tapping the area where you want to retain focus. The final image can then be saved as a separate JPEG image. The Post Focus mode is ideal in focus critical applications, ensuring you've got the shot you need.

High Speed Focusing

Images with maximum sharpness can be captured easily thanks to the GX85's Depth From Defocus (DFD) technology. The camera identifies the distance between the farthest and the closest subject in your frame and combines it with the lens data using the Venus Engine image processor to quickly lock focus on even the smallest details. Engaging its electronic motor, it attains focus in a blink of an eye to ensure you are equipped to capture all of life's spontaneous moments.

In-Camera RAW Editing

A built-in intelligent image processing engine and 3" monitor jointly enable you to edit your RAW photos and export them as JPEG files. The in-camera editor allows you to adjust shadows, highlights, white balance, sharpness, noise reduction and other details without the hassle of transferring them to a computer and editing with expensive software.

Pop-Up Flash

The built-in Pop-Up Flash pops out automatically to fill your scene with light if the camera detects it as underexposed. This gives you an opportunity to keep shooting even at night or in other low light situations.

Hot Shoe

For more creative lighting scenarios the Hot Shoe allows you to further enhance the lighting by using any of the Panasonic Lumix flashes (sold separately). While shooting videos, you can use the hot shoe to mount LED lights (also sold separately) for improved exposure.

3" Tilting LCD Touch Screen

The 3-inch Touch Screen at the back of camera can be tilted 80˚ upwards and 45˚ downwards for easy shooting even at difficult angles. The touch enabled display makes browsing the images easy and fun. Its 1.04 million-dot resolution and accurate colour representation provide clear preview and accuracy when editing RAW images.

Bright Electronic Viewfinder

The 2.76 million-dot electronic viewfinder is sharp and responsive. The viewfinder proves to be a great asset, delivering better detail for critical focusing applications, especially when shooting under the harsh sun. The 0.7x magnification of the viewfinder provides improved eye relief, allowing for extended periods of use without discomfort.

Wi-Fi Connectivity

Built-in WiFi allows you to connect your camera to a smartphone or tablet and enjoy the freedom of shooting wirelessly (via the free Panasonic App) while having control at your fingertips. Images can be downloaded and instantly shared through your smart device via email or on your favourite social media platforms including Facebook and Instagram.
