Panasonic has opted for top picture quality with the new Panasonic Lumix GX8. A camera model that is defined by incorporating 4K technology and for being the first to have dual image stabilizer, this feature prevents blurry images and sudden movements. A versatile and portable model for both amateurs and professionals.
Panasonic’s new camera is part of the GX range of micro four thirds models, and has a Live MOS sensor of 20.3 megapixels, each image being captured with virtually no noise and getting good quality even in environments where there is little light. In addition, images are more precise, have a wider dynamic range and a color reproduction that is much more natural.
It features also the Venus Engine image processor, which reduces noise in the darker areas of the picture and that integrates a quad-core CPU for high-speed processing to eight megapixels per second, or six images per second to focus and capture the person that is moving at high speed, without sacrificing accuracy.
One of the main innovations of the Panasonic Lumix GX8 is the new Dual Image Stabilizer (Dual IS), which combines optical image stabilization in the lens and an image stabilizer in the camera body, thus correcting the shake and avoiding blurry images regardless of shooting with a zoom lens or in frame.
The camera, which has integrated WiFi and NFC, also captures 4K video and incorporates the 4K Photo function to get a fixed 8-megapixel with total control and precision, with built-in functionality within the latter, by presenting three different picture modes.
Other information to consider are the 90 degrees folding electronic viewfinder and the three-inch screen and 1040K points, which can be moved 180 degrees from side to side and 250 degrees up and down. It also includes creative controls.
The new Panasonic Lumix GX8 is designed with a very elegant body, in black and silver, which is also resistant to dust and splashes. For its size, it is a model that can be carried anywhere.
