Pixel-perfect photos

The LUMIX GX85 s 16-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor lets you capture more detail and produce sharper images, whatever you are shooting, without the need for Low Pass filter.

Venus Engine -Impressive colour reproduction

Shoot high-quality, true-to-life images with excellent resolution, high contrast, and impressive colour reproduction. Removing the Low Pass Filter, the limiting resolution is improved by approximately 10% while detecting high-frequency components to suppress the generation of moire by the Venus Engine, which is designed for the LUMIX GX85. Combining the Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine renders clear images with minimum noise even in low-light situations and a maximum sensitivity of ISO25600. A Panasonic comparison with the LUMIX GX7.

New Photo Style option – L. Monochrome

L. Monochrome is a new option added to the Photo Style for more creative photography. It produces impressive monochrome pictures with deep blacks and rich gradation like that of a B/W film.

Focus Bracket / Aperture Bracket

Focus Bracket and Aperture Bracket are newly added to the conventional Exposure Bracket and WB Bracket. Focus Bracket shoots a maximum of 999 images with different focus points, and Aperture Bracket lets you take multiple shots with different depths of field. Select the mode to match the situation or conditions, then choose the best photo after shooting.

Made to move

Ideal for capturing life on the go, the LUMIX GX85 integrates a 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabiliser), combining body and lens stabilisation to gain more powerful handshake correction. The 5-axis Dual I.S. works in both photo and motion picture recording, including 4K video from wide to telephoto. It is also beneficial even in low light situations, and makes it possible to use a 4-step slower shutter speed. Based on the CIPA standard [Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=32mm (35mm camera equivalent f=64mm), when H-FS12032 is used.]

Shock reduction shutter unit

The LUMIX GX85 adopts an electromagnetic drive in the shutter unit that dramatically reduces the shock caused by the movement of the shutter diaphragm. It also minimises the shutter sound and unit size. This shock reduction lets you release the mechanical shutter even in situations where there was no choice but to use the electronic shutter.

Shoot What You See

The LUMIX GX85 features a Live View Finder, perfect for framing your shot and capturing every detail you're looking for. The LVF boasts 2764K-dot equivalent high resolution and approximately 100% colour reproduction for high visibility under any circumstances.

Flexible Tiltable monitor

The large 3.0-inch, approximately 1040k-dot static-type touch monitor tilts upward by 80 degrees and downward by 45 degrees. It enables dynamic framing for artistic low-angle shots, like when shooting at nearly ground level, and is highly practical for high-angle shots, like when you need to shoot over the heads of people at a parade or a party.

High Speed AF with DFD technology

Panasonic's Depth From Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology* instantly calculates the distance between the items inside the frame and drives the focus of the lens in one fast, continuous movement. This system results in faster AF and burst shooting speeds. It also increases the stability of continuous focusing when shooting video.

Star Light AF

Low Light Auto Focus makes it possible to set focus on the subject more precisely in such as moonlight even without AF assist lamp. Furthermore, the LUMIX GX85 integrates the Starlight AF to let you shoot a star in the night sky with auto focus by accurate calculation of the contrast value in a smaller AF zone.

Never miss the perfect moment

Our 4K PHOTO feature lets you capture the perfect moment by selecting a frame from a video sequence (shot at 30fps) in camera, and saving it as an individual high-res image. Simply shoot, select and save, to make those fleeting moments unmissable in every sense.

Your world has never looked better

With the stunning power of 4K Video, LUMIX GX85 lets you record every inspiration in up to 4x the resolution of Full HD. More detail, in more clarity, means there s more to see in every moment.

Shoot now, focus later

Imagine being able to decide exactly what you want in focus, even after you have taken the photo. Post Focus gives you the power to do just that. Simply capture the scene, review the image and touch the part of the photo you'd like to be pin sharp. It's simple, stunning and all inside the LUMIX GX85. Learn more >>

Adjust the focus area after shooting with Focus Stacking

The Focus Stacking function enables you to adjust the focus area after shooting by combining multiple images. You can get an image with exactly the kind of defocus you want or pan-focus the image by simply selecting the focus area after shooting. This is beneficial when shooting macro shots of insects, small accessories and so on.
