Product Description

Packing a 20.3-megapixel Sensor, Dual I.S. and 4K Video/Photo recording capability, this camera will capture your subjects in the best way possible. Its sophisticated design will satisfy even the most experienced photographers.

The LUMIX GX8 comes with a high-resolution (2,360k-dot) Tiltable OLED Live View Finder which allows high visibility thanks to a 10,000:1 contrast and perfect framing even under direct sunlight conditions. High 0.77x magnification (35mm camera equivalent) makes it easy to see image details. Also with all your settings displayed right in front of your eye, your pictures will always come out exactly how you want them to.

To be tough enough to withstand even heavy field use, the main structure of the LUMIX GX8 is composed of magnesium alloy full diecast front / rear frame. It also
features splash / dustproof construction thanks to the
sealing on every joint, dial, and button.

The 1040k-dot rear monitor adopts OLED for higher-precision, higher-speed response. The LUMIX GX8 boasts tilt & swivel capability making it more comfortable even for vertical composition while giving you the freedom to find unusual perspectives. 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.
