Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 Mirrorless Micro 4/3 Camera
Capture Moments With Superb 4K Imaging
Teaming 4K recording and an enhanced Micro Four Thirds sensor, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8, available in black or silver is a sleek, compact mirrorless camera delivering versatile, multimedia recording. Making use of a high resolution 20.3 megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor, coupled with a Venus Engine image processor, the GX8 has the ability to capture 4K UHD movies at 24 or 30 frames per second, record full-resolution stills at 10 frames per second with AF-S or 8MP stills at 30 frames per second, and operate in difficult lighting environments with top end sensitivity of ISO 25600. Taking advantage of the imaging capabilities is an uncommon Dual I.S. system that allows the use of both the in-camera and in-lens image stabilization systems to effectively diminish the appearance of camera shake. The body layout is also symbolized by a reliable, magnesium alloy construction that makes use of a tilting OLED 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder and an adjustable angle 3.0" OLED 1.04m-dot rear touchscreen to allow working from a variety of different angles. Displaying an enhanced set of imaging features with a satisfying form factor, the GX8 is a conventional camera engineered with advanced multimedia capture in mind.
Among other features, the GX8 also includes built-in Wi-Fi featuring NFC to enable seamless wireless transfer of image and remote control of the camera using linked smartphones or tablets. Taking advantage of both stills and movies, Panasonic's Depth-From-Defocus (DFD) AF system helps to accelerate focusing speeds while a Starlight AF feature assuress focusing accuracy in poor-light down to -4 EV and manual focus is underscored by focus peaking and Touch AF controls.
