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 is boosted nearly 10% over previous 16-Megapixel sensors. Image stabilization 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.

Class Leading Dual Image Stabilization

A new 5-Axis in-body sensor stabilizer works in tandem with LUMIX 2-Axis optically stabilized
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 Megapixel 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 maximize 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.*

*Color Space Setting (sRGB / AdobeRGB), White Balance, Exposure Compensation, Photo Style, Intelligent D-Range Control, Contrast, Highlight / Shadow, Saturation, Noise Reduction, Intelligent Resolution and Sharpness.

DMC-GX85K is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I expected I purchased this gx85 with 12-35 lens sometime last fall and been use it since.(about 3000 shutter releases) This is my first m43 camera and to get it I trade in my D7100.For a while I had the notions that I make a mistake by going for m43 lumix.Not any more.I review my pictures from D7100 and GX85.Most GX85 pictures come out better looking with less noise.I have been Nikon guy for 15 years+ but this thing got heavy with 17-55 lens or 70-300 VR or even 16-85.I love Nikon but technology is going forward faster than they can keep up with.Sorry nikon guys...I m not professional - just serious amateur and I do not like to use post processing because I do not need it. GX 85 is very handy and easy to use.Pictures are great and now is time for me to practice some movies in standard mode or 4K. I also have panasonic lens 45-150 which is OK with my GX85 and the next lens is going to be panasonic 100-300.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from finally I do not need backpack... I own the GX85 for little over a month by now. Purchased it from authorize dealer in Houston while looking for something smaller and lighter than my Nikon DSLR. So far I love it. Easy to operate and picture quality is better for what I need (walk around and vacation memories).Got two lenses - 12-35 and 45-150 and my pictures are not to be complain about if you compare it with my ex- Nikon.While bicycling I do not need backpack for my photo equipment.It is light weight and fit perfectly in small camera bag. As far as futures- it is loaded with more than I needed. 4K pictures are great and easy to work with.I do not use it for 4K movies only for 1080 p because after one attempt I find out that my PC is not made to handle 4K movies.I'm glad I did not go for point and shoot style camera-thanks to camera store salesman. Did I mention cameras 5 axis image stabilization build in, and touch screen, and excellent low light capability and easy wifi connection (it works!) ....? Do not need remote control - just use android phone... Lenses are much cheaper than other main brands cameras lenses. Can't get much better ....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact size makes it easier to carry and travel This camera is a beauty, the size and how compact it is. I was just sold on how I can easily keep it in my pocket when I travel. I do feel I have a lot of features on this camera which I don't use. Wish they were less features so it's less confusing. I was a regular user of Nikon D90 SLR with time it started becoming hard to carry it everywhere because of the size. I started shooting on my iPhone instead, coming back to using manual settings was a bit hard and the features on this camera can be a bit overwhelming. Quality is awesome. It worked well on some of the time lapse videos and panoramic shots I did. I will definitely go back and buy a macro lense to experiment further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect urban camera. I fell in love instantly with this camera the first time I used it. It's very easy to use and extremely fast in all aspects. I was incredibly pleased with how fast it focused, along with how amazing the image quality is. The fact that it's so tiny makes it a no brainier to anyone looking for a great portable camera that can still pack a punch. Definitely recommend and totally exceeded my expectations!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gets the job done I participated in an Advocate Program on behalf of Panasonic USA. I received product samples as part of my participation. All opinions are my own. After using the camera for a little over a month I have to say it gets the job done. For such a small compact camera, it provides pretty good image quality. I found my self using this camera when I didn't feel like carrying heavy gear or was just panning to go out. I was able to fit it in a small bag or coat pocket and use it whenever. The size and weight definitely made it convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Take Everywhere With You Camera This review isn't about the technical aspects of the camera. This review is tailored towards the consumer who wants a small, compact and capable mirrorless camera that they could take everywhere with them. This review if for: - Someone who understands the importance of some really good food pics - Likes adventure and looking back at it through pics and videos - Explores around town and takes photos along the way - Has cute pets and likes cute pet pics - Has an eye for design and wants photos of cool spaces - Wants to travel light but not miss a photo moment Basically this is a review for the photographer/social media influencer/enthusiast who believes the best camera is the one they have on them. Just a couple housekeeping notes: * Before I continue, I have to put out a disclaimer and say that I was chosen as part of Panasonic and Lumix USA’s campaign (#PanasonicAdvocate) to test this camera out and share my experiences with an unbiased and honest review. And that is exactly what I’m going to do as these opinions are my own and I have literally been using this camera almost every day for over a month. ** All images posted to this review are taken with the kit lens. I started out my mirrorless journey with the Panasonic GF1. It was a pioneer amongst the mirrorless cameras and to this day remains one of my favorite cameras to have used. Since then, I’ve owned mirrorless cameras from Olympus, Fujifilm and now Sony so it’s kind of cool how this all came full circle when Panasonic approached me with the gx85. DISLIKES Let’s get the things I dislike out of the way because they’re not a deal breaker for me, they’re simply just things I think can be improved upon. While I appreciate and have grown to love the tilt screen, I wish this camera flipped all the way up for selfies and group shots. Selfies aside, when I’m traveling, this is super useful trying for getting quick self-portraits. This is also my first touch screen for a camera. While I love the option to quickly change my focal points with a touch of the screen, I find that when I put the camera up to my eye to compose a shot through the EVF, the touch focus point is so sensitive that it moves around like crazy. The camera is also a bit heavy for it’s size. I read that people complained that it’s predecessor seemed dinky in the hands and while they improved that with the gx85 feeling robust, in my opinion, it’s a touch too heavy for such a compact m43 camera. On that same note, because the added weight is attributed to making the camera feel more robust, they really should have made this weather proof. It would cancel out any negative feelings one has towards this camera being slightly heavy for a small compact. High ISO = mehhh photo quality. There’s not much to this point other then when you have a small sensor and you’re pushing it’s ISO, images tend to smudge up, noise builds and the clarity becomes lost. It’s not horrible by any means and they’ve come such a long way since the first m43 cameras, but larger sensor cameras will always have the edge when it comes to high ISO. LIKES It’s so cute/cool. Yea I said it. Whatever lol. I’m big on how cameras look these days. I think the aesthetic of ones tools are a direct representation of ones style. For me, I love when cameras can embody a retro rangefinder look while still infusing some modern design elements without looking like the two are fighting against each other. When I think of retro and modern design friction, I think of some of the Olympus bodies. When I think of the perfect blend of retro and modern, I think of the Leica Q. The buttons and dials are all fantastic. So much so I rarely use any of the touch screen buttons to navigate around for settings and the camera interface and menus. The build quality is first rate. I know I said earlier it was a tad bit too heavy and while I stick with that statement, it really does feel good in the hands regardless. Start up time is instant. Something Sony really needs to take note on. I love the kit lens. It’s so small but provides a good range and the quality is really good for what it is. It’s also built well for a kit lens so the overall vibe of this combo still feels like a premium product. The image stabilization on this thing is BANANAS. My Sony A7RII also has 5-axis image stabilization, but the gx85 also takes advantage of lens I.S. created a Dual I.S. system. Video clips feel like they’re taken with a gimbal (super amateur clips btw). I’ll never buy a camera without Wi-Fi. Many times, I like to post photos instantly, especially when I’m traveling. The Wi-Fi on the gx85 works great with the app and transfers images relatively fast. I’ve yet to loose connection while transferring photos. And like many current mirrorless cameras, the autofocus is lightning fast. OVERALL IMPRESSIONS Just like with every other mirrorless camera out there, there are still some short comings. Most of which I didn’t feel the need to mention because we’ve heard it time and time before. The most notable for me being battery life. It makes sense though when you have a small battery trying to give life to an almost all electronic device (LCD, EVF, shutter, etc.). With those little gripes aside, I still do believe mirrorless is the future and this camera is just part of that journey. The Panasonic gx85 is a great, be-with-you-at-all-times camera. As you can see by the photos I’ve posted, that’s exactly what happened. The gx85 was with me at all times. It came with me to dinner, it came exploring in my Jeep and it came with me to hang out with some friends. Will I be using it for paid work? No, but that’s because I have my Sony line of cameras to do that for me. Is it capable for paid work? Absolutely! Just ask any of the social influencers making a killing per post with an iPhone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible little camera I received this camera for free in return for an honest review." The GX85 is everything you want in a camera in a perfectly compact package with design and features inspire. Starting with the design, it's simple and clean with an efficient layout that promotes functionality. The GX85 has great built quality with controls in just the right place. The EVF is one of the best I've seen.. I've tried out other compact mirrorless cameras before, even with bigger sensors than this one and the GX85 outshines them in almost every aspect, including the EVF which is the most important for me. Everything on this camera is easy to use with a great menu system and an accessible wifi function that makes it easy to upload images on the go. The five axis image stabilization is fantastic and works great with lenses that don't have IS. I've got nothing bad to say about this camera. It's simple yet intuitive which is exactly what I like to see in a product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great transition from iphonegraphy I was recruited by Panasonic to test out their new mirrorless Lumix GX85 camera. Up to this point, I've been using my smartphone to shoot pics for my Instagram feed, so I found this camera to be an easy transition with its touch screen interface, wifi access and pinch zoom. The sleek, customized body design makes it easy to carry when I'm out doing street photography. I also find the tilting screen is handy when shooting in off angles and it views great in bright light when in playback mode. Speaking of bright light, the GX85 nails any focus in either bright or dim light - something the iPhone cannot do. One of my favourite features is the touch screen auto focus which is great when you need to focus in on your subject quickly. It also shoots very quietly which I also like. I found the battery life tends to drain after a 2 hour photo shoot (approximately 250 photos). Charging time tends to take a few hours via usb cable (provided). So if you're planning on using the camera, make sure to set some time aside for juicing or invest in a backup battery. The camera did freeze on me once. Not exactly sure what caused this, but I managed to troubleshoot by taking the battery out and re-inserting it. Although, I didn't get to really experiment with the 4k feature as much, the times I tested it got me excited for any upcoming events that will require fast action (sports, concerts). I'm also looking forward to utilizing the interchangeable lens component for when I choose to add to my camera kit. The camera takes any of the following memory cards: SD, SDXC, SDHC. The app used with this camera is the Panasonic Image App which has the following options: remote control, image transfer, geotagging, snap movie and photo collage. All in all, picture quality is super sharp and I'm extremely happy with this camera as my first mirrorless.
