An all-around Micro Four Thirds camera designed for photographers and videographers, the black Lumix DMC-GX85 from Panasonic features a compact build and intuitive layout, along with a feature-set to suit a multimedia lifestyle. Utilising a 16MP Live MOS sensor, which lacks an optical low-pass filter for increased sharpness, the GX85 is capable of shooting continuously at up to 10 fps with single-shot autofocus, or 6 fps with continuous autofocus, as well as up to 40 fps when using an electronic shutter function. UHD 4K video recording is also supported in 30 and 24 fps frame rates, as well as Full HD 1080p, and the 4K recording abilities also permit shooting 8MP stills at a 30 fps rate. A sensitivity range up to ISO 25600 permits working in difficult and low-light settings while 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization also helps to minimise the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Spanning a broad range of features for both still and moving images, the GX85 is a versatile mirrorless camera further characterised by its sleek form factor and connected functionality.

LUMIX GX85 4K Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera

For today's interchangeable lens camera enthusiasts — or anyone looking for a lighter, newer more intelligent alternative to bulky DSLRs — Panasonic Lumix Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds system cameras deliver impressive no-compromise performance. 

Nearly half the size of most DSLRs, the DMC-GX85 delivers impressive large sensor performance in the most compact camera system ever designed by Panasonic Lumix. Thanks to the elimination of the low pass filter, its fine detail resolving power are boosted nearly 10% over previous 16-MegapixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints. sensors. Image stabilisation is top of its class with the complementary LUMIX 2-axis lens O.I.S. and a new 5-axis in-body I.S., available in either photo or video recording modes.

Camera purists will enjoy the familiar quick-access thumbwheel controls and integrated 2764k-dot eye-level electronic viewfinder, plus a tilting LCD display for greater flexibility in difficult shooting angles. Modern enthusiasts will love the WiFi mobile control and next-generation flexibility that 4K Video, 4K PHOTO and 4K Post Focus modes bring to the creative experience.

The included wide-angle Panasonic Lumix G Vario 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH Lens is a stylish, compact and an essential everyday lens that’s suitable for capturing a variety of scenes as it delivers superb optical performance and astonishing image quality. Top highlights of the lens feature a MEGA O.I.S (Optical Image Stabilisation) to ensure that you’ll have high-quality images, with sharp blur-free across the entire frame; smooth apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. changes; a silent design for enhanced capture of the scene’s audio, and an excellent tracking performance.


Class-Leading Dual Image Stabilisation

A new 5-Axis in-body sensor stabiliser works in tandem with LUMIX 2-Axis optically stabilised lenses* in either video or still capture modes. * Compatible with select LUMIX Lenses 


Fine Detail Performance

The GX85 eliminates the detail-depriving low-pass filter from the sensor. The result is a near 10% boost in fine detail resolving power over existing 16 MP Micro Four Thirds sensors.


Travel Light Without Compromise

Nearly half the bulk of most DSLRs with the modern hybrid photography performance of a Mirrorless camera.


Familiar Integrated Controls

Integrated thumb-wheel controls and easily accessible exposure control dials provide a familiar DSLR-like feel and experience.


Improved Visibility

An integrated 2764k-dot Electronic Viewfinder improves viewability under harsh sunlight and promotes improved shot framing posture for added handheld stability.


Touch Enabled Tilting Display

A touch-enabled tilting LCD provides 80 degrees of up-tilt and 45 degrees of down-tilt to maximise viewing in difficult framing situations.


Multiple Lens Choices

Expand and enhance creative possibilities with 27 (and growing) lens options. The most of any Mirrorless camera system available today.


Turn 4K Into Photography

4K Ultra HD Video provides four times the resolution of HD Video. 4K PHOTO isolates video frames at 30 frames per second as high-resolution photos, to ensure you'll never miss that moment again. And with 4K Post Focus you can capture now and refocus later.


High-Speed Focusing

Panasonic's Depth-From-Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology instantly calculates subject distance, then drives the focus mechanism with one quick, continuous movement for faster AF speeds.


Raw File Processing

RAW-format images can be easily developed in-camera with adjustments. *Colour Space Setting (sRGB / AdobeRGB), White Balance, Exposure Compensation, Photo Style, Intelligent D-Range Control, ContrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). , Highlight / Shadow, Saturation, NoiseNOISEThe appearance of random pixels scattered over a photo, similar to the grain effect seen in film photography, which degrades photo quality almost as if it is stained. It occurs when taking photos in low-light conditions, with very slow shutter speeds on high sensitivity (ISO) settings. It is caused by amplification done by the sensor when high ISO settings are used. You can counteract digital noise by lowering the sensitivity (ISO) setting of your camera - the lower the ISO setting, the lower the noise in the image. Typically cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) will inherently produce less noise due to larger pixels on the sensor. Reduction, Intelligent Resolution and Sharpness.

  • 3.0" 1.04m-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD
  • UHD 4K Video Recording at 30/24 fps

  • ISO ISO Exposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. The ISO speed determines how sensitive a camera's sensor is to incoming light. A higher ISO speed absorbs more light, resulting in a brighter exposure, however, a higher ISO also results in more digital noise in low-light conditions. Cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) typically have higher ISO speed capability and produce less digital noise at high ISO settings. Digital cameras include a control for adjusting ISO speed, some of which can be set to adjust automatically in combination with certain other exposure settings. ISO is indicated in numbers usually starting at 100 and going upward (200, 400, 800, 1600 etc.) doubling in sensitivity each time. Most cameras also indicate 3rd stop intervals (100, 125, 180, 200 etc.)25600 and 10 fps Shooting with AF-S
