Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 4K
Wi-Fi Digital Camera Body (Silver)

Unprecedented picture quality.

Never again miss that once-in-a-lifetime shot with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8. Featuring superb 4K imaging capability in both video and 4K PHOTO, the GX8 lets you shoot 30 frames per second in crystal-clear 4K Ultra HD Video and extract them as individual photos. Choose the one that best captures the moment.

Unique, in-body stabilization technology with select optically stabilized lenses work together for class-leading Dual Image Stabilization while a new 20.3-megapixel sensor achieves Panasonic's highest image quality.

Need a camera to take along on your outdoor adventures? The GX8 features a worry-free splashproof / dustproof rugged body so it stands up to some of the most challenging environments. Designed for maximum flexibility, the GX8 features over 20 interchangeable lens options.

Key Features:

4K Video and 4K Photo - Capture THAT MOMENT
THAT MOMENT you want to remember can occur at any time, and Panasonic's exclusive 4K PHOTO technology uses 30 frames per second in high resolution 4K Ultra HD Video to extract them as photos. You'll never miss THAT MOMENT again.

4K Photo Modes - Free Your Creativity
The 4K Photo function can be used in three different modes, all allowing you to capture that perfect moment at a high burst rate of 30 frames / photos per second:

  • 4K Burst
    Burst shooting 8-megapixel equivalent images extracted from 4K video as long as the shutter button is pressed.
  • 4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop)
    4K burst recording as 4K video then play, pause, and extract any frame / photo as an 8-megapixel equivalent image later.
  • 4K Pre-Burst
    4K pre-burst starts recording one second before and after you press the shutter button. Perfect for unpredictable moments.

4K Video - More Detail Than Full HD
4K video delivers a far more intense viewing experience that is four times larger than Full HD, resulting in a much higher level of detail.

Innovative, Dual-Image Stabilization
The GX8 integrates Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) for the first time in LUMIX G series allowing for more powerful vibration correction. Conventional image stabilization in the camera (Body I.S.) and the interchangeable lens (Lens I.S.) can be switched. However, with the new Dual I.S., both Body I.S. and Lens I.S. work at the same time to take advantage of both stabilizers not only in wide angle shooting but also in telephoto. With max.3.5x (wide) / 1.5x (tele) wider correction angle, you can get clear handheld images even in low-lit situations where the shutter speed tends to be slower.

Maximum 1/8000 second Fast Shutter Speed
High shutter speed at maximum 1/8000 second enables precise capture of fast-moving subjects, and also allows you to open the aperture in bright outdoor environments. A maximum 1/16000 second with an electronic shutter reduces washouts even under strong sunlight and 1/250 second flash synchronization speed lets you use a fully open aperture even for bright scenes.

20.3MP Live MOS Sensor
The LUMIX GX8 employs the newly-developed 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor that achieves high-speed bursts, ISO25600 high sensitivity, and a wider dynamic range. The Venus Engine image processor with quad-core CPU enables high speed signal processing. Optimizing the combination design of the sensor, the imaging engine and the low-pass filter enhances the resolution by approx. 15% in comparison with the LUMIX GX7.

RAW File in-Camera Development
The LUMIX GX8 is capable of processing the RAW image in camera. In addition to the color space setting (sRGB / AdobeRGB), the parameter of white balance, exposure compensation, contrast, highlight/shadow, saturation, noise reduction or sharpness can be flexibly adjusted while LUMIX's Photo Style, Intelligent D-range Control, Intelligent Resolution can also be applied.

Splashproof / Dustproof Rugged Design
To be tough enough to withstand even heavy field use, the LUMIX GX8 adopted a rugged design with the main structure composed of magnesium alloy full die cast front/rear frame. It also features splash / dustproof construction thanks to the sealing on every joint, dial, and button.

Everything in the Right Place
The LUMIX GX8 features a premium flat body with front/rear dials to control aperture and shutter speed settings. Settings can also be assigned to eight function buttons. In addition, it is possible to adjust the exposure compensation with a dedicated dial.

Large OLED LVF
The LUMIX GX8 boasts a large, tiltable LVF that boasts highest ever magnification ratio of approx.1.54x / 0.77x (35mm camera equiv.) in the history of LUMIX G digital cameras. It also features 2,360K-dot high resolution and 100% field of view. High-precision, high-speed dual OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays for LVF (Live View Finder) and rear monitor.

Free-angle OLED Monitor
Adopting a static-type touch control system, the free-angle 3-inch rear monitor with 1040K-dot high resolution features approx.100% field of view. It rotates approx.180-degree and tilts up by approx.250-degree, making it easy to shoot from a high or low angle even in vertical composition.

Easy Wireless Connectivity
The GX8 integrates Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC (Near Field Communication) technology to offer a more flexible shooting experience and easy instant image sharing. Once the camera and smartphone/tablet are connected by installing Panasonic's dedicated application software Panasonic Image Ape for OS / Android, users can shoot, browse and share images remotely.

Fast and Precise AF Tracking
With the new algorithm of AF Tracking, not only the color but also the size and motion vector of the target are recognized, enabling the camera to lock on the subject even more securely. The result is the AF tracking performance of approx. 200% or greater which refrains the camera from losing the subject .

High Speed Auto-Focusing with DFD Technology
Panasonic's Depth-From-Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology instantly calculates the distance between foreground and background and quickly brings the subject into focus with one fast, continuous movement. This new system results in AF speeds up to 0.07 seconds and a burst shooting speed with Continuous Auto Focus (AFC) of 6 frames per second.

Focusing in Low Light Conditions -- Star Light AF
Starlight AF allows users to shoot a star in the sky at night with auto focus. This can be achieved with accurate calculation of contrast values in a smaller AF zone. The focus detect area is increased from 23 (LUMIX GX7) to 49 points for more flexible composition and together with Custom Multi AF mode users can freely select the blocks to focus out of the 49 in the focusing area.

A Wide Lineup of LUMIX G Lenses
Panasonic LUMIX G DSLM (Digital Single Lens Mirrorless) cameras offer a wide variety of digital, interchangeable lenses. Many feature Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) compatibility when mounted to the LUMIX GX8. Even those without O.I.S. can be used.
