Lumix GX8

Image Stabilisation - Dual I.S

        The Lumix GX8 integrates Dual I.S. (image stabiliser)* to gain a 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.     

        * For photo.    

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 non-compliant with Dual I.S. or those without O.I.S. can also be used.     

        * Firmware update is required for some lenses.    

 

 

    

 

 

20.3 MP Live MOS Sensor

        The Lumix GX8 integrates the 20.3 megapixel digital Llive MOS sensor that achieves a high image quality in the history of Lumix G digital cameras. It achieves high speed burst, max. ISO 25600 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 good picture quality.    

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 good 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.    

4K Video and 4K Photo - Capture The Moment

        Special moments you want to remember can occur at any time and should be captured. Now Panasonic's 4K technology is available for everyone. With the introduction of the Lumix GX8, you will be able to record video in 4K (up to QFHD: 3840 x 2160 pixels, 30 fps, 100 Mbit/s). Furthermore, with the 4K Photo feature, you can extract the photo out of a 4K video sequence easily on the camera and save it as an 8-megapixel equivalent still image.    

 
    
 

 

4K Photo Modes - Free Your Creativity

        The 4K Photo function can be used in three different modes, all allowing you to capture the right moment at a high burst rate of 30 frames/photos per second:     

        4K Burst - this is a function that you can use more like using photo burst shooting mode. The camera keeps on shooting 8-megapixel equivalent images at high burst rate as long as the shutter button is pressed.     

        4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop) - this function is the standard 4K Photo function where you are able to record a 4K video to extract any frame/photo as an 8-megapixel equivalent image later. You can relax and wait for the moment to come.     

        4K Pre-Burst - the specialty of the 4K Pre-Burst mode is that the camera starts recording a 4K video sequence one second before and after you press the shutter button. This allows you to capture an unpredictable moment which happens much faster than you are able to react. You can get extra 60 photos to choose the best from.    

4K Video - More Details Than Full HD

        Whether you are watching movies or editing videos, 4K delivers a far more intense viewing experience than you have seen before. Its native resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels is four times larger than Full HD, resulting in a much higher level of detail. Even if you export your footage filmed in 4K to a Full HD TV, the video files will have even better definition and crisper details than those filmed in Full HD. When recording videos in 4K, use a card rated as UHS Speed Class 3.    

1,440k-dot, Large OLED LVF

        The Lumix GX8 comes with a high-resolution (1,440k-dot) tiltable OLED live view finder which allows high visibility thanks to a 10,000:1 contrast and optimal framing even under direct sunlight conditions. High 0.77x magnification (35 mm 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.    

High Speed Auto-Focusing with DFD Technology

        Capture fast moving action thanks to Panasonic's Depth From Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology*. The Lumix GX8 calculates the distance between the items inside the frame and drives the focus of the lens in one fast, continuous movement. This system results in AF speeds up to 0.07 seconds** and a burst shooting speed with Continuous Auto Focus (AFC) of six frames per second. It also increases the stability of continuous focusing when shooting video.    

        * Contrast AF with DFD technology works only with Panasonic Micro Four Thirds lenses.     

        **In AFS, at wide-end with H-FS14140 or H-HS12035 (CIPA).    

 
    
 

 

Free-Angle OLED Monitor

        The 1040k-dot rear monitor adopts OLED for higher-precision, higher-speed response. The Lumix GX8 boasts tilt and swivel capability making it more comfortable even for vertical composition while giving you the freedom to find unusual perspectives. Plus, touch control immediately lets you to set focus to the subject by just touching it on the screen and you can even release the shutter.    

Everything in the Right Place

        To offer more flexible usage, the Lumix GX8 can be combined with the DMW-FL580L/FL360L external flash, the DMW-MS1 stereo microphone and many other accessories. For this viewfinder, Eyecup DMW-EC3 made of elastic material enhances comfort in viewing either with naked eye or with glasses.    

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.    

Fast and Precise AF Tracking

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

 
    
 

 

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, like moonlight with no other light source. Furthermore, the Lumix GX8 integrates the Starlight AF to let you shoot a star in the night sky with auto focus by accurate calculation of the contrast value in a smaller AF zone.    

Maximum 1/8000 Second Fast Shutter Speed

        High shutter speed at maximum 1/8000 second enables you to capture spur-of-the-moment of fast moving subject. It also allows you to open the aperture even outdoors. Maximum 1/16000 second with an electronic shutter reduces washouts even under strong sunlight.    

Silent Shooting

        There are many situations when you want your camera to be absolutely silent such as street photography or at a classical concert. When using the electronic shutter of LUMIX G cameras, the mirrorless system is considered noiseless thanks to the fast and silent AF-System in the lenses and the lack of shutter noise. Silent shooting with Lumix G opens areas of photography that are out of reach for other photographers.

Synchronisation Speed 1/250 Second

        A flash is convenient for shooting against the light source. Maximum 1/250 second synchronisation speed lets you use a fully open aperture even for bright scenes.
