Lumix DMC-GX85

[10/05/16] 

So summer is on the way and that means it’s time for seasonal escapes to tropical hotspots. But to be able to pull off that last-moment-nothing-but-a-leather-duffle-and-a-grin look you’re going to need to be weight conscious, and that includes rethinking how you take those essential, jealous-inducing holiday snaps.



Fortunately the brand spanking new Lumix DMC-GX85 mirrorless interchangeable lens camera weighs nearly half of the typical DSLR camera, yet offers shooters plenty of power and performance thanks to a new 16-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor and a new 5-axis image stabilization system that will take crisp images and video, in all conditions, four beers in. A new Contrast AF system promises super-fast auto focusing, with a host of useful focus functions catering to all sorts of shooting conditions – because you never really know how those summer nights are going to pan out. There’s a widescreen Live View Finder and a three-inch, tilting touchscreen monitor that makes composition a breeze and if you’re looking to make those holiday snaps a little more gritty, a new L.Monochrome mode offers the rich graduation of black and white film – perfect for Instagram. Connect to your smart devices via Wi-Fi, shoot video in 4k, capture low light scenes with a maximum 25,600 ISO, create time lapse symphonies on the go, and even fix focus after the fact thanks to an innovative Post Function focus.

Good things really do come in small packages.
