Packing a 20.3 Megapixel Sensor, Dual I.S. and 4K Video/Photo recording capability, the new DMC-GX8 will capture your subjects in the best way possible. Its sophisticated design will satisfy even the most experienced photographers.
The Lumix GX8 integrates Dual I.S. (Image Stabiliser) to gain more powerful handshake correction. The Body I.S. and Lens I.S. work at the same time to take maximum advantages of both Stabilisers together. With a maximum 3.5x wider correction angle at wide end, you can get clear handheld shots even in low-light situations.
The Lumix GX8 integrates the newly developed 20.3 megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor that achieves highest ever image quality in the history of Lumix G digital cameras. It achieves high speed burst, max ISO25600 high sensitivity image recording and wider dynamic range. The combination of the Digital Live MOS Sensor and the Venus Engine achieves clear image rendering with minimum noise even in low-lit situations and stunning picture quality.
Special moments you want to remember can occur at any time and should be captured in the best resolution possible. Now Panasonic’s 4K technology is available to everyone. With the GX8 you will be able to record video in 4K (up to QFHD: 3840 x 2160 pixels, 25fps, 100Mbit/s). With the 4K Photo feature, you can extract the perfect photo out of a 4K video (30 frames/photos per second) sequence easily on the camera and save it as an 8 megapixel equivalent still image.
The Lumix GX8 comes with a high resolution (2360k-dot) Tiltable OLED Live Viewfinder which allows a high visibility thanks to a 10000:1 contrast and perfect framing even under direct sun light conditions. High 0.77x magnification (35mm camera equivalent) makes it easy to see image details.
To be tough enough to withstand even heavy field use, the main structure of the GX8 is composed of magnesium alloy full diecast front/ rear frame. It also features splash/ dustproof construction thanks to the sealing on every joint, dial and button.
