  • 16 MP Mirrorless Camera
  • G VARIO 12-60mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH
  • 4K Ultra HD Video
  • In-body Gyro Sensor
  • Splashproof and Dustproof
  • Less bulky than a DSLR, the LUMIX G85 is the compact 4K video-enabled Micro Four Thirds Mirrorless (DSLM) camera with true-to-life photo image quality.
  • Newly developed in-body gyro sensor adds class-leading 5-axis body stabilization that when mated to LUMIX 2-axis optically stabilized lenses for a "Dual IS" effect, is worth nearly 5 f-stops in video and still capture.
  • 4K Video recording at 30p/24p 100 Mbps plus a 3.5mm port for external microphones. (Full HD 60p 28Mbps)
  • Weather sealed splashproof 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.
  • Never miss a photo with 3 unique 4K Ultra HD Video pause and save 4K Photo Modes
  • Expand creative possibilities with 27 (and growing) interchangeable lens options.
  • The Panasonic LUMIX G85 offers over 27 LUMIX compact lens options built on the next-generation interchangeable lens camera standard (Micro Four Thirds) pioneered by Panasonic. Its "mirrorless" design enables a lighter, more compact camera body that includes cutting-edge video, audio, creative controls, wireless, intelligent-focusing, gyro sensor control in body image stabilization and exposure technologies not possible with traditional DSLRs. And with the exclusive LUMIX 4K Ultra HD video pause and export as a 4K PHOTO mode, you'll never again miss that one shot that perfectly captures a scene.
  • Keeps Pace With Your Photography:
  • When life's adventures take you places, you need a camera that keeps up. Photographer Mitchell Kanashkevich took the LUMIX G85 on a journey to Romania. Perfect for outdoor shooting, the Dual Image Stabilizer helped him take crisper, clearer images in difficult and fast-moving environments, while the compact, weather-sealed body and kit lens improved flexibility wherever he went. See the difference a LUMIX G85 makes on your adventures, too.
  • 5-Axis Gyro Sensor Compensation:
  • With the LUMIX G85, a new gyro sensor increases the image stability compensation power of the 5-Axis Body image stabilization to correct hand-shake for all lenses, including classic lenses not equipped with optical image stabilization.
  • Dual I.S. Effective To 5 Stops:
  • The LUMIX G85 integrates 5-Axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer)*, combining 5-axis body and 2-axis lens stabilization for more effective handshake correction and compensation for shots up to 5 f-stops**. The 5-axis stabilization works in both wide and telephoto photography and motion picture recording, including 4K Video.
  • A Rugged Sealed Body:
  • Rugged enough to withstand even the most challenging environments, the splash/dustproof body gives you the flexibility and freedom to never stop exploring. The thick, ergonomically designed grip provides stable shooting even with one hand.
  • 4K Photo - Never Miss That Shot:
  • LUMIX-pioneered 4K PHOTO lets you capture the perfect moment by selecting single frames from a 4K video sequence shot at a blistering 30fps to save as individual high-res images.
  • Extend Your Battery Life:
  • Prolong battery life to approximately 800-900* images with a power-saving eye sensor that detects when your eye moves away from the viewfinder and automatically enter Sleep mode.
  • A Grip On Power:
  • Shoot longer with two batteries - one in the camera, the other in the optional battery grip (DMW-BGG1). The grip also makes handling the camera more comfortable, even in vertical angle shooting and it perfectly matches the camera's rugged splash/dustproof design.
  • Shoot Now, Focus Later:
  • Enjoy the creative freedom of being able to decide what you want in focus, even after you shoot. Exclusive POST FOCUS mode gives you the power to review an image and touch the area you'd like to be pinpoint sharp. What's more, a new Focus Stacking feature lets you easily select several focus points in the same image.
  • Shutter Shock Reduction:
  • The LUMIX G85 includes a new electromagnetic drive in the shutter unit. The shock caused by movement of the shutter diaphragm is dramatically reduced and the shutter sound is significantly minimized. Together with the use of a new solid magnesium front panel, shutter shock is reduced by approximately 90% compared with the LUMIX G7.
  • DFD - Ultra High Speed Focusing:
  • Thanks to the DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology that instantly calculates distance to subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels, ultra-high-speed AF and 6-fps burst shooting with AFC, and 9-fps burst shooting with AFS is possible. The compatibility of the UHS-II SDXC/SDHC Memory Card and increased buffer memory elevate the maximum number of recordable images in consecutive shooting up to 300 (JPEG) / 45 (RAW) or more.
  • What You See Is What You Get:
  • The Live View Finder with 0.74X (35mm equiv.) magnification ratio gives you the freedom to frame your shot and capture everything you see. Plus, 2360K-dot high resolution and approximately 100% color reproduction provides high visibility under any circumstances.
  • True-to-Life Detail:
  • The 16-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor with no low pass filter helps capture sharper images with more detail.
  • Impressive Color Reproduction:
  • Shoot true-to-life images with excellent resolution, high contrast and impressive color reproduction. Removing the Low Pass Filter improves quality by approximately 10%* while the Venus Engine designed for the LUMIX G85 detects high-frequency components to suppress the generation of moire. Combining the Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine renders clear images with minimum noise even in low-light situations and a maximum sensitivity of ISO 25600.
  • Life has Never Looked so Good:
  • With highest quality 4K Video, the LUMIX G85 lets you record every journey's twists and turns in up to 4X the resolution of Full HD. More detail and more clarity means more memories to look back on, all in perfect quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best G series camera kit yet "I got the G85 with the 12-60mm kit lens from Henryђs in Ottawa. In my opinion, this is by far the best G-series Lumix camera ever, the 12-60 kit lens is the best kit lens and arguably the most versatile and optically best zoom lens Iђve tested in more than 30 years, and the kit lens is a steal when purchased in the kit instead of separately. Iђve reviewed the lens separately. Iђve owed several Lumix ILC cameras since 2009, most recently the G7 and the GX8 (I still have the latter). The G85ђs improved image processing gives noticeably sharper images than did the G7, also cleaner in terms of noise even at ISO 100, and in my tests (Edmund Scientific Company resolution chart using the same lens and test conditions) I have trouble seeing at 200% magnification on a 27У monitor much or often any differences between images taken on the G85 (16 megapixels) and on the GX8 (20 megapixels, older sensor). The camera gives 5-axis stabilization in video (including in 4K video) with any lens you can attach to the camera, and in my tests I can rely on 4 stops less shutter speed for hand-held work with any lens Iђve tested as long as the shutter speed doesnђt drop below 1/4 second. I actually got 5 stops safe hand-held speed on my 14-140 and 45-175 zoom lenses at the long ends of their ranges. This is between 1-stop and 2-stop improvement over the stabilization in the GX8 which has an older form of in-body stabilization the G7 had no IBIS. The camera has all the features of the G7 plus several impressive new ones, including (in addition to those already mentioned): in-camera focus stacking from Post-Focus capture (with the options of either automatic or user-defined range selection of focused images), automatic focus bracketing (with a user-defined range of focus steps and up to 999 frames captured, including in 16 megapixel RAW format vs the 8-megapixel JPG results one gets in Post Focus), user-controlled AF sensitivity when in AFF or AFC focus modes, in-camera Рlight compositionУ processing useful for blending night-time fireworks photos shot on a tripod, and now exposure bracketing and focus bracketing can be done with a single shutter-button press (no need to hold the button down, useful especially with long focus bracket series). And you now have four choices of shutter mode: auto, all-mechanical, electronic-first-curtain (with mechanical second curtain), and all-electronic (and totally silent). This gives you the trade-offs of silent, totally-shock-free shutter operation but no flash, versus operation that isnђt too loud and may risk some shutter shock but permits flash, with different respective shutter-speed ranges. The G85 uses the same battery as the older G5, G6, G7, GX8 and maybe a few other models, so if like me you have spare batteries left over from older cameras, they (and their battery chargers) will also work with the G85. A very worthwhile upgrade from any G or GX series camera, in my opinion. Well worth the back-order wait, which I hope will drop with time (I waited six weeks for mine)."
