Overview / Product Description






Panasonic LUMIX GX8 Mirrorless Micro 4/3 Camera - Body Only




Packing a 20.3-megapixel Sensor, Dual I.S. and 4K Video/Photo recording capability, this camera will capture your subjects in the best way possible. Its sophisticated design will satisfy even the most experienced photographers.



Features

  • Capture moments with superb 4K imaging performance in both video and exclusive 4K PHOTO
  • Unique, in-body stabilization in combination with select optically stabilized lenses work together for class-leading Dual Image Stabilization results
  • New 20.3-megapixel sensor achieves Panasonics highest image quality
  • Worry-free splashproof / dustproof rugged body
  • Over 20 Interchangeable lens options available








4K Video and 4K Photo Capture THAT MOMENT

THAT MOMENT you want to remember can occur at any time, and Panasonic's exclusive 4K PHOTO technology uses 30 frames per second in high resolution 4K Ultra HD Video to extract them as photos. You'll never miss THAT MOMENT again.



4K Photo Modes Free Your Creativity

The 4K Photo function can be used in three different modes, all allowing you to capture that perfect moment at a high burst rate of 30 frames / photos per second:
  • 4K Burst - burst shooting 8-megapixel equivalent images extracted from 4K video as long as the shutter button is pressed.
  • 4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop) - 4K burst recording as 4K video then play, pause, and extract any frame / photo as an 8-megapixel equivalent image later.
  • 4K Pre-Burst - 4K pre-burst starts recording one second before and after you press the shutter button. Perfect for unpredictable moments.
4K Video More Detail Than Full HD

4K video delivers a far more intense viewing experience that is four times larger than Full HD, resulting in a much higher level of detail.



Innovative, Dual-Image Stabilization

The LUMIX GX8 integrates Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) for more effective results. The GX8's body I.S. works in tandem with the LUMIX lens I.S. for maximum stabilization.



Splashproof / Dustproof Rugged Design

The LUMIX GX8 camera body is composed of a magnesium alloy, full diecast front and rear frame. Tight seals on every joint, dial and button enable splashproof / dustproof performance.



20.3MP Live MOS Sensor

The LUMIX GX8 employs the newly-developed 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor that achieves high-speed bursts, ISO25600 high sensitivity, and a wider dynamic range. Combined with the Venus Engine, the GX8 achieves clear image rendering with minimum noise, even in low-light situations.



A Wide Lineup of LUMIX G Lenses

Panasonic LUMIX G DSLM (Digital Single Lens Mirrorless) cameras offer a wide variety of digital, interchangeable lenses. Many feature Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) compatibility when mounted to the LUMIX GX8. Even those without O.I.S. can be used.



Everything in the Right Place

The LUMIX GX8 features a premium flat body with front/rear dials to control aperture and shutter speed settings. Settings can also be assigned to eight function buttons. In addition, it is possible to adjust the exposure compensation with a dedicated dial.



Large OLED LVF

The LUMIX GX8 comes with a high-resolution (2,360k-dot), tiltable OLED Live View Finder which affords high visibility thanks to a 10,000:1 contrast ratio and a high 0.77x magnification (35mm camera equivalent). An optional eyecup (DMW-EC3) made of elastic material enhances comfort.



Free-angle OLED Monitor

The 1040k-dot rear monitor boasts tilt & swivel capability, making it more comfortable even for vertical composition. Plus, its touch control allows you to quickly set focus just by touching the subject on the screen.



Fast and Precise AF Tracking

With the new AF Tracking algorithm, not only the color but also the size and motion vector of the target are recognized, enabling the camera to lock on the subject even more securely.



High Speed Auto-Focusing with DFD Technology

Panasonic's Depth-From-Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology instantly calculates the distance between foreground and background and quickly brings the subject into focus with one fast, continuous movement. This new system results in AF speeds up to 0.07 seconds and a burst shooting speed with Continuous Auto Focus (AFC) of 6 frames per second.



Focusing in Low Light Conditions Star Light AF

Low Light Auto Focus makes it possible to focus on subjects more precisely in -4EV low light situations. In addition, the LUMIX GX8 includes a new Starlight AF feature which lets you shoot a starry night sky using auto focus.



Maximum 1/8000 second Fast Shutter Speed

High shutter speed at maximum 1/8000 second enables precise capture of fast-moving subjects, and also allows you to open the aperture in bright outdoor environments. A maximum 1/16000 second with an electronic shutter reduces washouts even under strong sunlight and 1/250 second flash synchronization speed lets you use a fully open aperture even for bright scenes



RAW File in-Camera Development

The LUMIX GX8 can shoot images in RAW-format and even develop them inside the camera.
