Overview

The Panasonic LUMIX G85 offers over 27 LUMIX compact lens options built on the next-generation interchangeable lens camera standard (Micro Four Thirds) pioneered by Panasonic. Its “mirrorless” design enables a lighter, more compact camera body that includes cutting-edge video, audio, creative controls, wireless, intelligent-focusing, gyro sensor control in body image stabilization and exposure technologies not possible with traditional DSLRs. And with the exclusive LUMIX 4K Ultra HD video pause and export as a 4K PHOTO mode, you’ll never again miss that one shot that perfectly captures a scene.

Keeps Pace With Your Photography

When life's adventures take you places, you need a camera that keeps up. Photographer Mitchell Kanashkevich took the LUMIX G85 on a journey to Romania. Perfect for outdoor shooting, the Dual Image Stabilizer helped him take crisper, clearer images in difficult and fast-moving environments, while the compact, weather-sealed body and kit lens improved flexibility wherever he went. See the difference a LUMIX G85 makes on your adventures, too.

5-Axis Gyro Sensor Compensation

With the LUMIX G85, a new gyro sensor increases the image stability compensation power of the 5-Axis Body image stabilization to correct hand-shake for all lenses, including classic lenses not equipped with optical image stabilization.

Dual I.S. Effective To 5 Stops

The LUMIX G85 integrates 5-Axis Dual I.S.2 (Image Stabilizer)*, combining 5-axis body and 2-axis lens stabilization for more effective handshake correction and compensation for shots up to 5 f-stops**. The 5-axis stabilization works in both wide and telephoto photography and motion picture recording, including 4K Video.

A Rugged Sealed Body

Rugged enough to withstand even the most challenging environments, the splash/dustproof body gives you the flexibility and freedom to never stop exploring. The thick, ergonomically designed grip provides stable shooting even with one hand.

4K Photo - Never Miss That Shot

LUMIX-pioneered 4K PHOTO lets you capture the perfect moment by selecting single frames from a 4K video sequence shot at a blistering 30fps to save as individual high-res images.

Extend Your Battery Life

Prolong battery life to approximately 800–900* images with a power-saving eye sensor that detects when your eye moves away from the viewfinder and automatically enter Sleep mode.

A Grip On Power

Shoot longer with two batteries — one in the camera, the other in the optional battery grip (DMW-BGG1). The grip also makes handling the camera more comfortable, even in vertical angle shooting and it perfectly matches the camera's rugged splash/dustproof design.

Shoot Now, Focus Later

Enjoy the creative freedom of being able to decide what you want in focus, even after you shoot. Exclusive POST FOCUS mode gives you the power to review an image and touch the area you'd like to be pinpoint sharp. What's more, a new Focus Stacking feature lets you easily select several focus points in the same image.

Shutter Shock Reduction

The LUMIX G85 includes a new electromagnetic drive in the shutter unit. The shock caused by movement of the shutter diaphragm is dramatically reduced and the shutter sound is significantly minimized. Together with the use of a new solid magnesium front panel, shutter shock is reduced by approximately 90% compared with the LUMIX G7.

DFD - Ultra High Speed Focusing

Thanks to the DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology that instantly calculates distance to subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels, ultra-high-speed AF and 6-fps burst shooting with AFC, and 9-fps burst shooting with AFS is possible. The compatibility of the UHS-II SDXC/SDHC Memory Card and increased buffer memory elevate the maximum number of recordable images in consecutive shooting up to 300 (JPEG) / 45 (RAW) or more.

What You See Is What You Get

The Live View Finder with 0.74X (35mm equiv.) magnification ratio gives you the freedom to frame your shot and capture everything you see. Plus, 2360K-dot high resolution and approximately 100% color reproduction provides high visibility under any circumstances.

True-to-Life Detail

The 16-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor with no low pass filter helps capture sharper images with more detail.

Impressive Color Reproduction

Shoot true-to-life images with excellent resolution, high contrast and impressive color reproduction. Removing the Low Pass Filter improves quality by approximately 10%* while the Venus Engine designed for the LUMIX G85 detects high-frequency components to suppress the generation of moiré. Combining the Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine renders clear images with minimum noise even in low-light situations and a maximum sensitivity of ISO25600.

Life has Never Looked so Good

With highest quality 4K Video, the LUMIX G85 lets you record every journey's twists and turns in up to 4X the resolution of Full HD. More detail and more clarity means more memories to look back on, all in perfect quality.

DMC-G85MK is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Semi-Pro Camera Great 4K camera, i love the low light video and photos.
Date published: 2017-03-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camera I upgraded from an old DSLR and the difference is stunning. This camera is competitively priced, easy to use, and has great image and video quality. I would recommend getting a lens with low f-number for better low light quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Little Camera that could My name is Matt, I am an authorized Panasonic retailer (among other brands, but we won't mention them here!). As a videographer, Panasonic meets all my needs. I already had an FZ1000, which was super useful for slow-mo and long zoom reach, but I needed something else with the ability to get more shallow depth of field. Enter the G85. I was used to the 5 axis stabilization in the FZ1000, and the G85's 5 axis sensor matched perfectly, allowing me to use lenses that are either older or do not have O.S. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the GH4 (or upcoming GH5 for that matter) but to me that doesn't matter. The form factor and functionality make this guy extremely useful, especially in environments where a smaller footprint is needed. Panasonic's autofocus systems continue to amaze me, and paired with the right lenses, require little to no manual operation...a huge plus, especially when flying it on a gimbal. If you're looking to upgrade from the G7, while keeping your costs low...this is the camera for you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Huge Bang for the Buck The quality of the still photos from this camera are superb. The new 5 Axis in camera IS along with lens IS is a great improvement that makes getting great images easier. One downside to this camera is that I wished it had similar button layout as that found on the Lumix GH4. Having the WB, ISO and +/- EV button on the top deck and just behind the shutter button would eliminate accidental activation of the same buttons in their current location which is on the back of the camera where your palm rests and sometimes is prone to activate these tools. Other than that I find this camera an amazing value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Quality in a small package! What's not to love about the G85! The image quality along with the 12-60 lense Allows for really sharp ,enriched color image even in super low light thanks to the Dual IS . The 24-120 true focal length with this lens is a dream for any photographer needing a do it all lens Do yourself a favor buy this camera that fits your hand like a glove, comfortable ,easy to use you won't want to put it down even when you have too! Big quality in a small package !
