Panasonic DMC-GX85 overview

  • 1Description

An all-around Micro Four Thirds camera designed for photographers and videographers, the black Lumix DMC-GX85 from Panasonic features a compact build and intuitive layout, along with a feature-set to suit a multimedia lifestyle. Utilizing a 16MP Live MOS sensor, which lacks an optical low-pass filter for increased sharpness, the GX85 is capable of shooting continuously at up to 10 fps with single-shot autofocus, or 6 fps with continuous autofocus, as well as up to 40 fps when using an electronic shutter function. UHD 4K video recording is also supported in 30 and 24 fps frame rates, as well as Full HD 1080p, and the 4K recording abilities also permit shooting 8MP stills at a 30 fps rate. A sensitivity range up to ISO 25600 permits working in difficult and low-light settings while 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization also helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Spanning a broad range of features for both still and moving images, the GX85 is a versatile mirrorless camera further characterized by its sleek form factor and connected functionality.

Complementing the imaging attributes, the camera also incorporates both a 2.76m-dot electronic viewfinder as well as a 3.0" 1.04m-dot touchscreen LCD, which has a tilting design to better enable working from high and low angles. Built-in Wi-Fi is also integrated into the design, which facilitates wireless image transferring and remote camera control from linked smartphones or tablets.

16MP Live MOS Sensor
Using a 16MP Live MOS sensor, the GX85 is capable of capturing clear, high-resolution stills as well as UHD 4K video. The sensor's design omits an optical low-pass filter in order to achieve a high degree of sharpness and resolution, and its design also affords a sensitivity range from ISO 200-25600 to suit working in a variety of lighting conditions. Additionally, fast shooting performance is also afforded, with the ability to shoot at up to 40 fps with an electronic shutter function, 30 fps at 8MP using the 4K Photo Modes, 10 fps with AF-S and an electronic shutter, or 8 fps using a mechanical shutter with AF-S.
UHD 4K Video Recording
In addition to the versatile still shooting modes, the GX85 also supports recording UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) video with either 30p or 24p frames rates at 100 Mbps in the MP4 format. Full HD 1080p/60 is also supported, in both MP4 and AVCHD formats, as well as HD and SD resolutions. A built-in stereo microphone can be used during recordings, and features an integrated wind-cut filter for cleaner audio quality when shooting outdoors.
4K Photo Modes
Utilizing the 4K video recording capabilities, a trio of still shooting modes are available for recording continuous 8MP stills at a 30 fps shooting rate:
  • 4K Burst: Just as with video recording, this mode will allow you to continuously record 8MP images at 30 fps for up to 29 minutes 59 seconds, making it ideal for instances where you need a fast frame rate in order to capture the best moment.
  • 4K Pre-Burst: This mode is ideal for times when you're unsure of the critical moment to press the shutter button and will record 8MP images at 30 fps one second prior to and one second after pressing the shutter button in order to give you 60 frames to choose from.
  • 4K Burst (S/S): This mode most closely follows the 4K video recording process, and allows you to playback your video, pause at the chosen moment, and use the shutter button to mark a chosen frame from the video and save it as a single 8MP frame.
Dual Image Stabilization
Helping to achieve the utmost sharpness when photographing handheld, Dual I.S. combines the GX85's 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization technology with lens-based image stabilization to compensate for a broader range of movement types to render sharper, clearer imagery. Dual I.S. requires the use of compatible Lumix lenses featuring O.I.S.
Depth-From-Defocus AF Technology
For accelerated autofocus performance, DFD (Depth-From-Defocus) technology is employed to quickly calculate the distance to subjects and adjust the focusing position in order to suit working with continuous shooting rates up to 6 fps with continuous AF. This contrast-detection type focus method benefits both still and video recording modes, as well as subject tracking applications where subject color, size, and motion vectors are used to intelligently lock-onto the moving subjects and ensure precise focus. Additionally, supporting working in low-light conditions, a Starlight AF feature enables accurate AF performance down to -4 EV.

Benefitting manual focus operation, focus peaking is available that highlights bright edges of contrast with a colored outline for quickly recognizing your focus point, as well as Touch MF Assist for touch-to-focus operation.
Body Design and Built-In Wi-Fi
  • An integrated 2.76m-dot electronic viewfinder offers a bright, clear eye-level means for composing images, and features a 0.7x effective magnification.
  • A larger means for image composition and playback, the 3.0" 1.04m-dot rear OLED monitor has a tilting design to support viewing from a variety of angles. It is also a touchscreen, which permits intuitive menu navigation and settings control.
  • Nine programmable function buttons can be used to control a wide variety of settings and tools.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity allows for wireless image sharing and remote camera control from linked smartphones and tablets.
Lumix G Vario 12-32mm and 45-150mm Lenses
A versatile standard zoom, the Lumix G Vario 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH. is a 24-64mm equivalent wide-to-short tele featuring a sleek design to pair well with the compact camera body. Three aspherical elements and one extra-low dispersion element are incorporated within the lens design to reduce both spherical and chromatic aberrations in order to increase image clarity and sharpness. Complementing the optical design is an internal focusing system and stepping motor that pairs with the camera's contrast-detection AF for quick, accurate focusing performance.

Also included is the long-reaching telephoto zoom Lumix G Vario 45-150mm f/4-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. lens, which provides a 90-300mm equivalent focal length range. The lens's design features one UHR element and two aspherical elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions for consistent edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination. This lens also features a stepping motor for fast and quiet autofocus performance that benefits both stills and movie shooting. Additionally, MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.
Other Camera Features
  • A mechanical focal plane shutter enables a fast maximum shutter speed of 1/4000 sec, as well as a top flash sync speed of 1/160 sec. An electronic shutter function also avails a top shutter speed of 1/16,000 sec to better enable working in bright conditions and with wider aperture settings.
  • Photo Style modes: Standard, Vivid, Natural, Monochrome, L. Monochrome, Scenery, Portrait, and Custom.
  • Creative Control modes: Expressive, Retro, Old Days, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, Monochrome, Dynamic Monochrome, Rough Monochrome, Silky Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Cross Process, Toy Effect, Toy Pop, Bleach Bypass, Miniature Effect, Soft Focus, Fantasy, Star Filter, One Point Color, and Sunshine.

    Panasonic DMC-GX85 reviews

    Lumix DMC-GX85 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with 12-32mm and 45-150mm Lenses (Black) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best camera is the one you have on you! I love the look, feel and quality of this camera. So easy to throw in a bag or jacket pocket and the kit lens is amazingly sharp and nimble. The one big recommendation I would make is getting an upgraded strap that's long enough to have the camera around your shoulder for that or a hand strap. The included neck strap feels cheap and isn't the right configuration for a camera of this size in my view. Quality, ergonomics and weight are all good. A fantastic street camera as well which is my main use for it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Compact Camera !!! I bought this as my compact travel camera and the results for both photos and video have been excellent. It's an absolute bargain at the current price with two kit lenses. For my work I shoot with Panasonic GH5 cameras ( mostly video, but some photography too ), but for general purpose photography and video recording the GX85 produces extremely good results. The 5-axis stabilization is great for both photos and video, and makes a huge difference when shooting hand-held video. I would recommend purchasing a few extra batteries if you plan on shooting 4K video, as battery life can be as short as 45 minutes when shooting 4K. If you plan on shooting in low-light environments I would buy either the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 lens or the 25mm f/1.7 lens. ( I prefer the 20mm lens as my "wide" normal lens ) This camera kit is a great way to get started with a Micro 4/3 camera system.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me! Quite disapointed with this camera package (even at the discount price). First the good: *Takes nice RAW photos (still like my DSLR better). *Image stabilization works very well with stills, OK for video. *Shoots nice 4K video. The bad: *Kit lenses a hassle (too much swapping). I would need to invest close to$1700 for lenses that would eliminate this (14-140 and 8-18). The included 45-150 will not focus closer than 3' (seems even further in use) and the 12-32 has no focus ring and is a very short zoom range. *Touch screen overly sensative. Especialy when using the EVF. Shot with it off 90% of the time. *Auto focus (for stills) under some conditions was very squirley and frustrating. For video it was hit or miss. *Peaking never worked. So Manual focus was almost useless, especialy for video. *I found holding the camera kind of uncomfortable and clumsy. *Video button was almost impossable to find without looking. *Shooting in Aperture Priorety, the camera would change aperture settings (may be related to the next issue). *Buttons seem very sensative/finicky. Wairing the camera with a strap across my shoulder different items would pop up with the back of the camera against my body. *No body cap included in the package. No way to store the camera without a lens. Interesting camera but too finicky and too many features not working for me to use it for anything. I am returning mine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick delivery in Quebec without surprises Good device. A very good manufacturing quality. Still pretty big and heavy for a compact. BH is really unbeatable in price and delivery time. No problem with UPS delivery in Quebec. No additional charges.
