The Panasonic LUMIX GX80 is a compact system camera which will capture stills and frames in the best way possible. Packed in to its rugged design is a 16 megapixel Sensor, Dual I.S. and 4K shooting abilities which will keep focused, even in low light situations.
This mirrorless camera comes with the LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 12-32mm interchangeable lens which offers outstanding compactness and high image quality by lens construction. It comes complete with an Optical Image Stabilizer, which suppresses movement, and a Light Speed AF. It's an ideal lens for capturing action shots in the highest quality.
All in 4K
The new LUMIX GX80 can capture the spontaneous moments in the best resolution possible. Not only can you record in 4K but with the 4K Photo feature you can extract the perfect photo out of a 4K video (30 frames/ photos per second) sequence on the camera. This achieves an 8-megapixel equivalent still image.
Better still, 4K Photo can be used in three different modes; 4K Burst, 4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop) and 4K Pre-Burst. All these great modes will allow you to take photographs at a high burst rate of 30 frames/ photos per second.
Superb image quality
Integrating a 16-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor, the LUMIX GX80 achieves a very high image quality indeed. It can now reach a high speed burst, ISO 25600 high sensitivity image recording and wider dynamic range. And the combination of the sensor and Venus Engine makes for a clear image rendering with minimum noise, even in low-lit situations.
This is with thanks to the Low Light AF which can focus on subjects more precisely where there is either no light source, or just moonlight. What’s more, Starlight AF lets you shoot a star in the night sky with auto focus.
To gain a more powerful handshake correction is the built-in Dual I.S. (Image Stabiliser). A feature held in the body and lens, the Dual I.S. works at the same time to take maximum advantage of both the stabilizers together. With a maximum 3.5x wider correction angle at the wide end, you’ll always be able to take clear handheld shots when on the go.
TFT LCD monitor & viewfinder
Complete with a high-resolution (1,040,000k-dot) Tiltable TFT LCD Live View Finder. And with all your settings displayed right in front of your eye, your pictures will always come out exactly how you want them.
The LUMIX GX80 even boasts a free-angle TFT LCD monitor which can tilt and swivel. This great feature will enable you to find the unusual perspectives to shoot from. The touch control can set focus to the subject just by touching it on the screen and even release the shutter.
With the Panasonic Image App, you’ll be able to control the DMC-GX80 on your Smartphone or tablet device which will allow you to; view the image, set the focus, release the shutter, review photographs on the larger screen of your device or even share images on social networks. This is all made possible with built-in Wi-Fi.
The build of the LUMIX GX80 is composed of magnesium alloy full diecast front/rear frame. Its construction is also splash and dustproof thanks to the sealing on every joint, dial and button so the camera is tough enough to withstand even the heaviest use.
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.
