Panasonic has introduced a new Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera, the LUMIX DMC-GX85. The 16-megapixel camera does not feature an optical low pass filter, boosting the resolution and sharpness of images.
The LUMIX GX85 incorporates a new 5-axis Dual Image Stabilizer, which combines an O.I.S.(Optical Image Stabilizer, 2-axis) and a B.I.S.(Body Image Stabilizer, 5-axis), the system compensates for a larger range of movement than ever before.
The 16.0-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor without a Low Pass filter and the new Venus Engine combine to achieve crisp, high resolution images in detail with high contrast and impressive colour reproduction. The LUMIX GX85 adopts a new electromagnetic drive in the shutter unit, which dramatically reduces the shock due to the movement of shutter diaphragm and also minimises the shutter sound. The Contrast AF System features DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology and excels in both speed and accuracy by exchanging the digital signal between the camera and the lens at up to 240 fps.
The GX85 integrates a LVF (Live View Finder) with 2764K-dot equivalent high resolution. The new 3.0-inch large, approximately 1040K-dot high resolution static-type touch monitor can be tilted tilts up by 80-degrees and down by 45-degrees.
The camera features Wi-Fi connectivity and 4K movie capture. The LUMIX GX85 records stunningly smooth, high-resolution 4K video in 3840 x 2160 at 30p or 24p in addition to the full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 60p (60 Hz) videos with practical full-time AF.
It can also extract a 4K still image from a 30 fps 4K burst shot. The GX85 also comes with the Post Focus function that enables users to select an in-focus area even after shooting. The camera has a total of 49 focus points.
The LUMIX GX85 will be available at www.shop.panasonic.com and channel partners at the end of May for $799.99 in both silver and black versions with a 12-32 kit lens. An India release date has not been announced yet.
