This cutting-edge interchangeable-lens camera comes with new technologies that will turn you into an instant professional.
Mirrorless cameras have been on the market for over a decade, but it is only recently that they have begun making waves in the world of photography. More and more photographers are trading in their DSLRs for these smaller, lighter and quieter counterparts.
The Lumix DMC-GX8 is one such big step in the lineup of mirrorless cameras. Designed to suit the needs of anyone from an amateur to professional photographer or videographer, the GX8 has a host of cutting-edge technologies, such as a new Venus Engine processor, optimal image stabilization, new 20-megapixel mirrorless
sensor and 4K video. Because it is so intuitive and easy to use, you’ll be taking professional-quality photos in no time, even if you are a newbie.
The GX8’s weather-sealed magnesium alloy body protects the camera from dust and foul weather.
Available in black or silver, the retro and classic body design hides this camera’s powerful capabilities. The new sensor and processor provide better colour reproduction, improved dynamic range and better high-ISO performance over the previous model, the GX7. The all-new Dual Image Stabilizer is effective at both wide and telephoto settings and uses five axes for powerful handshake correction that is extremely effective at night or in other low-light situations. The GX8 also has an auto-focus system that is the fastest of any mirrorless camera, and its brand new 20-MP mirrorless sensor produces lifelike images with greater clarity, colour and resolution. What’s more, the GX8 allows you to take incredibly high-quality videos, and it even offers the option to shoot scenes in time-lapse or stop-motion.
Capture that elusive moment with 4K
Panasonic’s exclusive 4K burst-shooting modes take high-resolution video of up to 30 frames per second—then allow you to select any frame you like and turn it into a crystal-clear photo. Extremely useful for portrait shots and dynamic shots, you will never miss capturing that perfect moment again.
