Unprecedented Picture Quality
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.
20.3MP Live MOS Sensor
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.
Newly Developed Venus Engine
The Venus Engine features Multi Process Noise Reduction, Three Dimensional Colour Control and Aperture Filter to achieve high colour reproduction and high resolution images with natural tones. The combination of the High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and the Venus Engine achieves stunning picture quality. It also excels in diffraction compensation to make images crisp and clear even when shooting with a small aperture.
RAW Data Development in Camera
The LUMIX GX8 can shoot images in RAW-format and even develop them inside the camera, to adjust the following settings: Colour Space Setting (sRGB / AdobeRGB), White Balance, Exposure Compensation, Photo Style, Intelligent D-range Control, Contrast, Highlight / Shadow, Saturation, Noise Reduction, Intelligent Resolution, Sharpness.
Innovative Stabilisation – Dual I.S.
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 advantage 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.
A Wide Lineup of LUMIX G Lenses
Panasonic LUMIX G DSLM (Digital Single Lens Mirrorless) cameras offers a wide variety of digital interchangeable lenses and most of them are going to comply with Dual I.S. (Image Stabiliser) in LUMIX GX8*. Of course, the interchangeable lenses that are incompliant with Dual I.S. or those without O.I.S. can also be used.
4K Video and 4K Photo — Capture the Perfect Moment
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 for everyone. With the introduction of the new LUMIX GX8, you will be able to record video in 4K (up to QFHD: 3840 x 2160 pixels, 25 fps, 100Mbit/s).
Furthermore, 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 hybrid LUMIX GX8 frees your creativity for both video and photo.
2,360k-dot, Large OLED LVF
TThe LUMIX GX8 comes with a high-resolution (2,360k-dot) Tiltable OLED Live View Finder which allows high visibility thanks to a 10,000:1 contrast and perfect framing even under direct sunlight conditions. High 0.77x magnification (35mm camera equivalent) makes it easy to see image details. Also with all your settings displayed right in front of your eye, your pictures will always come out exactly how you want them to.
Splash/Dustproof Rugged Design
To be tough enough to withstand even heavy field use, the main structure of the LUMIX 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.
