The GX800 is a very sleek and stylish, high performing compact system camera, particularly fine for selfies and stunning panorama shots. Amazing 4K image quality, gloriously detailed 4K video and impressively rapid autofocus combine to make this a powerful camera with deceptively compact looks. Wi-Fi makes it super easy to share your snaps and movies wirelessly, and intelligent auto functions make it a joy to use, and ensure your pics, and you, look as good as possible.
The 16 megapixel Digital LIVE MOS sensor packs your images with crisp detail, stunning contrast gradation and rich colour. And with a maximum ISO 25600 you'll still be able to take clear and detailed shots in low light settings. Driven by the refined Venus Engine, images are processed with amazing colour scope, hue and saturation, and all at unbelievable speed.
4K Video, 4K Photo
With a 4K UHD resolution of 3840x2160 (at 30p) your movies will be amazingly detailed and super-smooth. And the 4K Photo feature allows you to select that perfect frame to save as a high quality still image.
A Contrast AF system uses Depth from Defocus technology to achieve an amazing autofocus speed of 0.07sec. So you can keep locked onto fast-moving subjects with extreme accuracy. And the neat Post Focus feature means you can even select the required focus point of your image after you've taken the shot, simply by touching the rear screen.
It's supplied with a LUMIX G VARIO 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S lens. This highly portable, standard zoom lens is ideal for getting the best out of the GX800. Starting from a 24mm wide angle (35mm camera equivalent), it's a very versatile lens, great for both dynamic landscapes and casual everyday snapshots, portraits and selfies. And with MEGA optical image stabilisation your shots will always be free of blurring.
The rear screen is fully tiltable up to 180 degrees. Once it's flipped, the camera automatically enters Self Shot mode so it's brilliant for that urgently-required selfie! And with Beauty Retouch and Background Control features you can ensure you look your best, and choose whether the background is clear or defocused for an extra layer of visual panache. Particularly good at capturing extra-wide landscape shots, panoramas are also available in Self Shot mode, and all in fantastic 4K.
Built-in Wi-Fi makes it easy to connect up with your smart device, so instant sharing of your best pictures and movies is a breeze.
Ease of Use
Making a range of more creative options easy, Creative Control, Creative Panorama and Photo Style (including Monochrome) modes are all available to give your pics added style. In addition, Intelligent Auto and Scene Guide modes make it simple and intuitive to get the very best out of your photography.
The image stabilisation on this camera is Lens Only.
Lenses & Cases
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless. Click here to browse our selection.
