Panasonic DMC-GX8 Overview

Combining the two essential components needed to begin photographing, the black Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with 12-35mm Lens Kit from B&H pairs the sleek multimedia camera with a versatile, fast standard zoom lens.

The GX8 features a high-resolution 20.3MP Digital Live MOS sensor and Venus Engine image processor for recording 4K UHD movies at 30 or 24 fps, shooting stills at up to 10 fps with single-shot AF, and working in difficult lighting conditions with a top sensitivity of ISO 25600. A Dual I.S. system benefits handheld shooting in low light by combining the benefits of both in-body and lens-based stabilization methods while a DFD (Depth-From-Defocus) AF system quickens focusing performance for both video and stills applications. Complementing the imaging capabilities is a robust magnesium alloy body construction that incorporates a tilting 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder and a free-angle 3.0" 1.04m-dot rear OLED touchscreen monitor. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi with NFC can also be used for wireless image transfer and remote camera control from linked smartphones or tablets.

Included with the camera body is the Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 ASPH. lens, which offers a 24-70mm equivalent focal length range along with a bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture. The lens construction includes one Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion element, one Ultra High Refractive element, and four aspherical elements to suppress chromatic and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range while a Nano Surface Coating minimizes lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color neutrality. POWER O.I.S. pairs with the camera's Dual I.S. system to effectively minimize the appearance of camera shake and a moisture- and dust-sealed design also permits working in harsh climates.

How do I update the firmware in this camera?
Asked by: Tom
Actually, I have not actualized the firmware, but I had investigated about, and there is a page in Panasonic (I can't send the web page through this window) that answers literally (in Google) the question: How to update the firmware of Lumix DMC GX8? The following are the headings of the sections to get to the exact page:Support > Digital AV > Digital Camera > Download > Joint update service for Four Thirds lenses > Download the file for update

question

Is there a comfortable way to set up back button focus?
Asked by: Donna
It is extremely easy and natural. There is a button dedicated to focus set or exposure set (you pick which as a menu item). I set it up as focus lock...back button focus. I just press the button and focus stays locked until I press it again. So very easy to go back and forth with this button and the shutter release button.

question

Focus bracketing? I think this has in-camera focus stacking from what one reviewer said, does it also have focus bracketing?
Asked by: Donna
Answer: The camera photographs in multiple focuses, in the camera itself you have the option to choose only one frame, discarding the other frames. With a separate program it is possible to stack all the frames and get a single image with a great range of focus. (Useful for macro photo) I hope in the next updates of the internal program of the GX8 body, this stacking of the various frames is offered in the camera body program itself.
