Packing a 20.3-megapixel Sensor, Dual IS and 4K Video/Photo recording capability, this camera will capture your subjects in the best way possible. Its sophisticated design will satisfy even the most experienced photographers.

The LUMIX GX8 integrates Dual I.S. (Image Stabiliser)* to gain more powerful handshake correction. The Body I.S. and Lens I.S. work at the same time to take maximum advantages of both Stabilisers together. With a maximum 3.5x wider correction angle at wide end, you can get clear handheld shots even in low-light situations.

The LUMIX GX8 integrates the newly developed 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor that achieves highest ever image quality in the history of LUMIX G digital cameras. It achieves high speed burst, max. ISO25600 high sensitivity image recording and wider dynamic range. The combination of the Digital Live MOS Sensor and the Venus Engine achieves clear image rendering with minimum noise even in low-lit situations and stunning picture quality.

Special moments you want to remember can occur at any time and should be captured in the best resolution possible. Now Panasonic's 4K technology is available for everyone. With the introduction of the new LUMIX GX8, you will be able to record video in 4K (up to QFHD: 3840 x 2160 pixels, 25 fps, 100Mbit/s).  Furthermore, with the 4K Photo feature, you can extract the perfect photo out of a 4K video (30 frames / photos per second) sequence easily on the camera and save it as an 8-megapixel equivalent still image.

The LUMIX GX8 comes with a high-resolution (2,360k-dot) Tiltable OLED Live View Finder which allows high visibility thanks to a 10,000:1 contrast and perfect framing even under direct sunlight conditions. High 0.77x magnification (35mm camera equivalent) makes it easy to see image details. Also with all your settings displayed right in front of your eye, your pictures will always come out exactly how you want them to.

To be tough enough to withstand even heavy field use, the main structure of the LUMIX GX8 is composed of magnesium alloy full diecast front / rear frame. It also features splash / dustproof construction thanks to the sealing on every joint, dial, and button.

The 1040k-dot rear monitor adopts OLED for higher-precision, higher-speed response. The LUMIX GX8 boasts tilt & swivel capability making it more comfortable even for vertical composition while giving you the freedom to find unusual perspectives. Plus, touch control immediately lets you to set focus to the subject by just touching it on the screen and you can even release the shutter.

Low Light Auto Focus makes it possible to focus on subjects more precisely in -4EV low light situations, like moonlight with no other light source. Furthermore, the LUMIX GX8 newly 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.

The LUMIX G Experience is our dedicated online resource where you can learn how to take better pictures with your LUMIX G camera, create galleries of your work, find out about upcoming photographic events and exhibitions, and even win camera equipment and other prizes. Why not share your shots with the rest of the community?
