The LUMIX GX8 integrates Dual I.S.* to gain more powerful handshake correction. The Body Optical Image Stabilisation and Lens Optical Image Stabilisation work at the same time. Almost any types of handshake can be effectively suppressed with the innovative Dual I.S., with a maximum 3.5x wider correction angle at wide end, you can get clear handheld shots even in low-light situations. Most of LUMIX G digital interchangeable lenses are going to comply with Dual I.S. in LUMIX GX8**. * For photo. ** Firmware update is required for some lenses.
New 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor achieves highest ever image quality in the LUMIX G history. It achieves high speed burst, maximum ISO25600 high sensitivity image recording and wider dynamic range. The Venus Engine features Multi Process Noise Reduction, Three Dimensional Colour Control and Aperture Filter to achieve high colour reproduction and high resolution images with natural tones. The combination of sensor and engine achieves clear image rendering with minimum noise even in low-lit situations and stunning picture quality.
With the introduction of the LUMIX GX8, you will be able to record video in 4K (up to QFHD: 3840 x 2160 pixels, 25 fps,100Mbit/s). And three 4K Photo functions are integrated to capture the fleeting photo opportunities; 4K Burst, 4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop) and 4K Pre-burst. All these functions allow you to capture that perfect moment at a high burst rate of 30 fps, and save it as an 8-megapixel equiv. photos. The hybrid LUMIX GX8 frees your creativity for both video and photo. ? When recording videos in 4K, use a card rated as UHS Speed Class 3.
A 2,360k-dot tiltable Live View Finder adopts OLED display for high-precision, high-speed response. High magnification of 1.54x/0.77x (35mm camera equivalent) makes it easy to see image details. An 1040k-dot OLED rear monitor boasts tilt & swivel capability making it more comfortable even for vertical composition. The front/rear dials control the main F and SS settings, while switching to handle temporary WB and ISO adjustments. To withstand even heavy field use, the LUMIX GX8 features a splash/dustproof design and magnesium alloy frame body.
Adding Depth From Defocus (DFD) technology* to Contrast AF has achieved both high precision and great speed at approximately 0.07 seconds**. This combines with more precise AF Tracking performance, and 8 fps (AFS)/6 fps (AFC) burst shooting to turn those once-in-a-lifetime moments into memories that last forever. High shutter speed at maximum 1/8000 second (mechanical)/1/16000 second (electronic) is also available. * Only for Panasonic Micro Four Thirds lenses. ** In AFS at wide end, with H-FS14140 or H-HS12035 (CIPA).
