4K Video and 4K Photo

With the Panasonic LUMIX GX8, you will be able to record video in 4K (up to QFHD: 3840 x 2160 pixels, 25 fps, 100Mbit/s). Furthermore, with the 4K Photo feature, you can extract the perfect photo out of a 4K video sequence easily on the camera and save it as an 8-megapixel equivalent still image. The 4K Photo function can be used in three different modes:

4K Photo Burst

This is a function that you can use more like using photo burst shooting mode. The camera keeps on shooting 8-megapixel equivalent images at ultra high burst rate as long as the shutter button is pressed.

4K Photo Burst S/S (Start/Stop)

This function is the standard 4K Photo function where you are able to record a 4K video to extract any frame / photo as an 8-megapixel equivalent image later.

4K Photo Pre-Burst

The specialty of the '4K Pre-Burst' mode is that the camera starts recording a 4K video sequence one second before & after you press the shutter button. This allows you to capture an unpredictable moment which happens much faster than you are able to react.

4K Video - More Details Than Full HD

Whether you are watching movies or editing videos, 4K delivers a far more intense viewing experience than you have seen before. Its native resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels is four times larger than Full HD, resulting in a much higher level of detail.

1,440k-dot, Large OLED LVF

The Panasonic LUMIX GX8 comes with a high-resolution (1,440k-dot) Tiltable OLED Live View Finder which allows high visibility and perfect framing even under direct sunlight conditions. Also with all your settings displayed right in front of your eye, your pictures will always come out exactly how you want them to.

Free-angle OLED Monitor

The 1040k-dot rear monitor adopts OLED for higher-precision, higher-speed response. The Panasonic LUMIX GX8 boasts tilt & swivel capability. Plus, touch control immediately lets you to set focus to the subject by just touching it on the screen and you can even release the shutter

Splash/Dustproof Rugged Design

Tough enough to withstand even heavy field use, the main structure of the Panasonic LUMIX GX8 is composed of magnesium alloy full diecast front / rear frame. It also features splash / dustproof construction.

High Speed Auto-Focusing with DFD Technology

Capture even the fastest moving action thanks to Panasonic's Depth From Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus (AF) technology. The Panasonic LUMIX GX8 instantly calculates the distance between the items inside the frame and focuses in one fast, continuous movement. This 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

Low Light Auto Focus makes it possible to focus on subjects more precisely in -4EV low light situations. Furthermore, the Panasonic LUMIX GX8 newly integrates the Starlight AF to let you shoot a star in the night sky with auto focus.

Silent Shooting

When using the electronic shutter of LUMIX G cameras, the mirrorless system is considered noiseless thanks to the fast and silent AF-System in the lenses and the lack of shutter noise.
