DMC-GX85WK — 4K Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera with 2 Lens Kit

Nearly half the size of most DSLRs, the DMC-GX85 delivers impressive large sensor performance in the most compact camera system ever designed by Panasonic LUMIX. Thanks to the elimination of the low pass filter, its fine detail resolving power is boosted nearly 10% over previous 16-Megapixel sensors. Image stabilization is top of its class with the complementary LUMIX 2-axis lens O.I.S. and a new 5-axis in-body I.S., available in either photo or video recording modes.

Camera purists will enjoy the familiar quick-access thumbwheel controls and integrated 2764k-dot eye-level electronic viewfinder, plus a tilting LCD display for greater flexibility in difficult shooting angles. Modern enthusiasts will love the WiFi mobile control and next-generation flexibility that 4K Video, 4K PHOTO and 4K Post Focus modes bring to the creative experience.

Includes LUMIX G 45-150mm telephoto

Zoom-in clear and close with MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) to compensate for handshake without a tripod, and a stepping motor for smooth, silent focusing in photo and video recording.

Class Leading Dual Image Stabilization

A new 5-Axis in-body sensor stabilizer works in tandem with LUMIX 2-Axis optically stabilized lenses* in either video or still capture modes.

Fine Detail Performance

The GX85 eliminates the detail-depriving low-pass filter from the sensor. The result is a near 10% boost in fine detail resolving power over existing 16 Megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensors.

Travel Light Without Compromise

Nearly half the bulk of most DSLRs with the modern hybrid photography performance of a Mirrorless camera.

Familiar Integrated Controls

Integrated thumb-wheel controls and easily accessible exposure control dials provide a familiar DSLR-like feel and experience.

Improved Visibility

An integrated 2764k-dot Electronic Viewfinder improves viewability under harsh sunlight, and promotes improved shot framing posture for added handheld stability.

Touch Enabled Tilting Display

A touch enabled tilting LCD provides 80 degrees of up-tilt and 45 degrees of down-tilt to maximize viewing in difficult framing situations.

Multiple Lens Choices

Expand and enhance creative possibilities with 27 (and growing) lens options. The most of any Mirrorless camera system available today.

Turn 4K Into Photography

4K Ultra HD Video provides four times the resolution of HD Video. 4K PHOTO isolates video frames at 30 frames per second as high resolution photos, to ensure you'll never miss that moment again. And with 4K Post Focus you can capture now and refocus later.

High Speed Focusing

Panasonic's Depth-From-Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology instantly calculates subject distance, then drives the focus mechanism with one quick, continuous movement for faster AF speeds.

Raw File Processing

RAW-format images can be easily developed in-camera with adjustments.
