Panasonic DMC-GX85 reviews

Lumix DMC-GX85 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with 12-32mm Lens and Accessories Kit (Silver) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good things come in small package I am impressed by the features packed in such a compact body especially the 5 axis image stabilization that works really well in the videos. The image quality is really good. My Nikon D5600 DSLR might have slightly better image quality but the portability and features makes me want to use this more. The only downside is that the battery life could have been better and they should have provided a separate charger. I am not a fan of in-camera battery charging. But you can find a generic one on ebay for less than 10$ so not really a big issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera, great price am not a professional photographer. I have been simply a photography enthusiast for many years. Recently I made the decision to buy an accessible but mostly small camera, to replace my canon. I am very pleased to have made the leap to 4/3 without a mirror. I bought the GX85 with the additional 45-150 mm and 25 mm. Its body is metallic although for the most part it is lined by a rough material similar to the skin and quite pleasant. The handle is small but it is well designed and the screen is tactile and articulable in vertical. The idea is, logically, to give more flexibility in the shots, although the movements are somewhat limited so it would be appreciated if you could also move in the horizontal plane. The camera includes an electronic viewfinder, although I have read some complaints about it, in my opinion the viewfinder works well with an excellent resolution. With the lens included in the kit forms a very compact body, something heavy like, but with a very appropriate size to take it for a walk. It is not nice that each time we turn it on we warn you that you have to turn the lens to start taking photos (it has a system that folds back so that it less), but it is a small price to pay to have a lens that hardly occupies space. Although I must say, I have barely used the 12-32 lens, I almost always wear the 25 mm equivalent to 50 mm. I miss the manual controls some dial more, but I guess I should get used to doing it directly on the screen. It is not a big thing. Performance and image quality. The approach not only works well, it is also very fast which, together with the option of using an electronic shutter, makes this an ideal device in situations where minimal noise is required. The camera reaches eight frames per second. This speed is remarkable to be talking about recording files in RAW + JPEG format (which is how I have done the tests), but it can also reach up to 40 frames using the electronic shutter and saving only JPEG in small size. The image stabilizer offered by the 5-axis camera works very well! If you also have a stabilizer lens, you can take photos without tripod at least two steps slower without problems. Regarding noise, it must be said that the ISO part of a value of 200 and can reach 25,600. As always, this maximum value is a resource that should not be used unless very rarely. I have limited the ISO up to 3200, where the noise is contained and the sensor performance is very usable. The image quality I have to say that without doubt the GX85 is a winner, the camera offers an outstanding level of detail. The reproduction of color and so on, I can say that the results of the tests have left us quite satisfied, with quite intense colors and contrasted and attractive images directly in JPEG format. But the results shooting RAW are excellent. I recommend using RAW always. The GX85 has something more than two years that came out. For some people 16 mp may seem little, but I tell them that the difference with 20 mp is not as much as you might think and with the image quality of this camera. I think I could not complain about the price. The counters that I could mention from this camera, are the extensive and complicated menus, that maybe I will need a little more time of learning. I'm not going to talk about Photo 4k and video because it's a well-known subject that Panasonic offers in all its cameras.
