Doug Laing and Gordon breakdown all you need to know about the weather sealed Panasonic Lumix G80 / G85, a mid-range mirrorless camera, including comparing it against the competition from Fuji, Sony and Olympus cameras.
Basic specs on the new Panasonic G85:
Not as plump as a DSLR, the LUMIX G85 is the compact 4K video-enabled Micro Four Thirds Mirrorless (DSLM) camera with true-to-life photo image quality.
High quality 5-axis body stabilization that when mated to LUMIX 2-axis optically stabilized lenses for a “Dual IS” effect.
4K Video recording at 30p/24p 100 Mbps plus a 3.5mm port for external microphones. (Full HD 60p 28Mbps)
Protective weather sealed, splash proof, and dustproof, rugged enough to withstand even the most challenging environments.
16-Megapixel MFT eliminates the need for low-pass sensor filters while boosting fine detail resolving power sensor.
With the DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology the g85 instantly calculates distance to subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels, super fast AF and 6-fps burst shooting with AFC, and 9-fps burst shooting with AFS is possible now.
