The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is a Mirrorless Digital Camera with a Four-Thirds sensor and a Micro Four-Thirds lens mount. Its 20 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 200-25600 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 100-25600. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in very low-light. With 20 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.
A builtin 4-Axis Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 to compensate for camera shake up to 3.5-Stops beyond hand-holding with any mounted lens.
This camera features a hybrid shutter that can expose for 1/16000 to 1m. This camera can make Bulb exposures up to 30m. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/16000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 features a 49-point Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame. Manual Focus is also available.
Dual controls-dials offer direct access to most exposure parameters which makes this digital camera suitable for advanced photographers. The weatherproof construction of this digital camera protects it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Framing on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is performed via a 0.44" Built-in EVF with 2.4 Megapixels. This extra large EVF has 0.77X magnification and shows 100% coverage.
