4K Video and 4K Photo — Capture THAT MOMENT

THAT MOMENT you want to remember can occur at any time, and Panasonic's exclusive 4K PHOTO technology uses 30 frames per second in high resolution 4K Ultra HD Video to extract them as photos. You'll never miss THAT MOMENT again.

• 4K Photo feature extracts 8-megapixel photo out of a 4K video sequence up to QFHD: 3840 x 2160 pixels, 30 fps, 100Mbit/s.

4K Photo Modes — Free Your Creativity

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

4K Burst - burst shooting 8-megapixel equivalent images extracted from 4K video as long as the shutter button is pressed.

4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop) - 4K burst recording as 4K video then play, pause, and extract any frame / photo as an 8-megapixel equivalent image later.

4K Pre-Burst - 4K pre-burst starts recording one second before and after you press the shutter button. Perfect for unpredictable moments.

4K Video — More Detail Than Full HD

4K video delivers a far more intense viewing experience that is four times larger* than Full HD, resulting in a much higher level of detail.

* Native resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels.
** When recording videos in 4K, use a card rated as UHS Speed Class 3.

Innovative, Dual-Image Stabilization

The LUMIX GX8 integrates Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer)* for more effective results. The GX8's body I.S. works in tandem with the LUMIX lens I.S. for maximum stabilization.

* For photo.

Splashproof / Dustproof Rugged Design

The LUMIX GX8 camera body is composed of a magnesium alloy, full diecast front and rear frame. Tight seals on every joint, dial and button enable splashproof / dustproof performance.

20.3MP Live MOS Sensor

The LUMIX GX8 employs the newly-developed 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor that achieves high-speed bursts, ISO25600 high sensitivity, and a wider dynamic range. Combined with the Venus Engine, the GX8 achieves clear image rendering with minimum noise, even in low-light situations.

A Wide Lineup of LUMIX G Lenses

Panasonic LUMIX G DSLM (Digital Single Lens Mirrorless) cameras offer a wide variety of digital, interchangeable lenses. Many feature Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) compatibility when mounted to the LUMIX GX8*. Even those without O.I.S. can be used.

* Firmware update is required for some lenses.

Everything in the Right Place

The LUMIX GX8 features a premium flat body with front/rear dials to control aperture and shutter speed settings. Settings can also be assigned to eight function buttons.* In addition, it is possible to adjust the exposure compensation with a dedicated dial.

* Eight buttons on the body and five buttons on the menu.


The LUMIX GX8 comes with a high-resolution (2,360k-dot), tiltable OLED Live View Finder which affords high visibility thanks to a 10,000:1 contrast ratio and a high 0.77x magnification (35mm camera equivalent). An optional eyecup (DMW-EC3) made of elastic material enhances comfort.

Free-angle OLED Monitor

The 1040k-dot rear monitor boasts tilt & swivel capability, making it more comfortable even for vertical composition. Plus, its touch control allows you to quickly set focus just by touching the subject on the screen.

Fast and Precise AF Tracking

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

High Speed Auto-Focusing with DFD Technology

Panasonic's Depth-From-Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology* instantly calculates the distance between foreground and background and quickly brings the subject into focus with one fast, continuous movement. This new system results in AF speeds up to 0.07 seconds** and a burst shooting speed with Continuous Auto Focus (AFC) of 6 frames per second.

* 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).

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. In addition, the LUMIX GX8 includes a new Starlight AF feature which lets you shoot a starry night sky using auto focus.

Maximum 1/8000 second Fast Shutter Speed

High shutter speed at maximum 1/8000 second enables precise capture of fast-moving subjects, and also allows you to open the aperture in bright outdoor environments. A maximum 1/16000 second with an electronic shutter reduces washouts even under strong sunlight and 1/250 second flash synchronization speed lets you use a fully open aperture even for bright scenes

RAW File in-Camera Development

The LUMIX GX8 can shoot images in RAW-format and even develop them inside the camera.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb Camera I bought this camera in 2015 from a Hong Kong shop. My first impression was that it did not feel as compact and tightly constructed as the GX7 (the GX7 is a marvel that has the sense of excellance about it). GX8 takes a few minutes to get used to. It is very similar to the GX7, except for the pivoting monitor, for decades a I shot with a twin lens Rollei and a Hasseblad so I am accustom to waste level shooting. The GX7 monitor drop down feature was perfect, the GX8 monitor is a bit cumbersume, but I am adjusting to it over time. The 20 mp is superb and brings out the best of older lenses adapted to the Panasonic M4/3 mount. Using the 2x digital converter with a 300mm lens is excellent for situations where a long lens is required. Also, the dual stabilization system is all that it is said to be and more. When I have time I still use a tripod, but I really don't need one with the stabilization systems in the GX8 and Panasonic lenses. I like to do micro work and the GX8 combined with the Leica Elmarit is excellent. This is a quality camera for all circumstances. July 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great camera i own 2 GX7 cameras. i did not think that they could improve the camera but then the GX8 came along and its a game changer February 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Feature Rich Rugged M43 It has everything I wanted in a camera. It is so feature rich with all sorts of customizable features. All the dial has been overhauled from GX7. New dedicated compensation dial is great. Only switch I do not like is On/Off button. It is bit hard to turn on if one has light gloves for winter photo. It is too recessed. Big pluses are Dual IS, 4K video, weather seal, great grip, articulated screen ... list goes on and on. One thing I am not impressed is burst rate with continuous focusing. Bit too slow though spec states 6 fps. I wish it had Slo-mo, and accessory battery grip. February 11, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Gorgeous video and nice photos I got my Lumix DMC-GX8 about three weeks ago and am quite pleased with the photo and video quality. I disagree with the review by Jake Fantom... I see no cropping in creative video mode and the camera records exactly what I see in the viewfinder. As for that video, 4K video from the GX8 looks terrific. I have the camera set for CineLog D and the video really does look cinematic. And it's very, very clean. I can shoot at ISO 1600 with acceptable noise, and there is virtually no noise at ISO 800 and below. I have a couple of gripes with the camera: First, it should come with a small external flash unit. Since there is no built-in flash, it should come with the same flash that the LX100 has. Second, why is the audio input on a 2.5mm connector?? There's gotta be a way to use the much more standard 3.5mm connector. Finally, the fact that there is no headphone out jack is a bother. As important as I think these things are, the GX8 is still a nice camera with the ability to shoot excellent 4K video and stills. So far, I love my camera and find my shooting is limited only by the lens I'm using. I would definitely buy the GX8 again. January 11, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by A mistake for videographers I purchased this camera for its much-touted 4K capabilities. I did not realize (since it is not mentioned anywhere) that when you shoot 4K video, the camera makes an automatic crop of the shot you are setting up. If you shoot in Intelligent Auto mode, the crop becomes apparent the minute you press the video button. You lose about 25% of the shot. If you shoot in Creative Video mode, the crop is never revealed to you. You appear to be shooting the exact scene you set up, but in fact, when you review the footage, the same 25% crop (my guesstimate) is readily apparent. Why this is not mentioned in the literature, I am not sure. In any case, this puts the videographer in the position of constantly guessing at the actual video results. I find this supremely annoying, and if you are serious about your video, you will too. Please bear in mind, I rarely if ever shoot photos, so consider this review for videographers only.
