Panasonic has launched a new compact mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, the LUMIX DMC-GX85.
The GX85 has a 16 megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor without a low pass filter, which improves the detail by 10% over Panasonic’s previous 16 megapixel sensors. The camera also includes in-body 5-axis image stabilization. The shutter mechanism employs a new electromagnetic drive to reduce the shutter shock and sound. The contrast based AF system works with Panasonic’s Depth from Defocus to get autofocus time as low as 0.07 seconds.
The GX85 can also record 4K (UHD) video at 30 or 24fps and 1080p video at 60fps with full-time AF.
The GX85 has a 2764k dot electronic viewfinder with 1.39x magnification and 100% field of view. The 3.0-inch 1040k dot touchscreen can tilt up and down. The camera also includes Wi-Fi for wireless connectivity with smartphones.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85 is priced at $799.99 with a 12-32 kit lens, and will be available end of May in black and silver.
