The Panasonic GX8 builds on the feature set of the previous GX7 model, offering a handful of significant improvements across various aspects of its functionality. Designed with the serious photographer and videographer in mind, the GX8 flagship boasts a new 20.3-megapixel Live MOS sensor, along with a faster Venus Engine and Dual Image Stabilisation system to achieve unprecedented picture quality in low light (max ISO 25600), lightening quick AF and 8fps burst shooting, and 4K video/photo capability. What's more, the camera's magnesium-alloy dust and splash-proof exterior is graced with a 3.0" free-angle 1040k-dot LCD and a tiltable OLED Live viewfinder with 100% field of view to offer users a variety of handling and viewing options. 

GX8 Press Release Intro (16/07/15): 
Panasonic today unveils its new LUMIX DMC-GX8 interchangeable lens camera. Boasting 4K capabilities, the latest creative technologies to enhance your photography and Panasonic’s first Dual I.S (Image Stabiliser), the latest LUMIX G, with a classic compact design, is the perfect everyday companion for the style-conscious urban adventurer. 
The GX8 is ideally suited for those who like to shoot on-the-go and at street level - from bustling bazaars to nights out with friends. The new camera offers stunning image quality alongside a wide array of easy-to-use creative functions, allowing photographers to capture and share their artistic vision easier than ever before.

Breathtaking image quality with every shot 
The LUMIX DMC-GX8 features a 20.3-megapixel sensor that’s perfect for capturing photos and video in stunning detail. The camera’s newly upgraded Venus Engine processor gives it a boost in low light environments. Whether you’re hitting the town in the early hours or taking a walk down a beach at sunset, images are captured with minimum noise and colours are recreated with total authenticity. 
The ability to capture consistently crisp and clear images is a key feature of the LUMIX DMC-GX8, and is further enhanced by Panasonic’s first Dual I.S. system. With a combination of Lens Optical Image Stabilisation and Body Image Stabilisation, you can achieve consistently blur-free images even when shooting on-the-go.

Pushing photographic boundaries with 4K Photo 
One of the most significant upgrades since the camera’s critically acclaimed predecessor - the LUMIX DMC-GX7 - is the introduction of 4K video capability. 4K video provides four times the resolution and clarity of traditional Full HD, resulting in videos that jump from the screen, bringing scenes to life before your eyes. 
With new 4K Photo features, the LUMIX DMC-GX8 also allows you to extract an 8-megapixel still from 4K burst images with total control and precision, so even the magic moments that pass in the blink of an eye can be recaptured and enjoyed forever.

Versatile shooting, wherever you are 
Built from magnesium alloy, the LUMIX GX8’s body is lightweight yet rugged, making it the perfect accompaniment to any urban adventure. The camera is also splash and dustproof, which is achieved by tightly sealing the various sections of the camera’s body to enable shooting in conditions other cameras are unable to go. 
A 0.77x (35mm equivalent) large, high-resolution Live View Finder (LVF) tilts 90 degrees to provide flexible shooting options for every situation, while the Free-Angle touch screen monitor can easily be moved both side to side (180 degrees) and up and down (250 degrees) – perfect for taking your selfies to a whole new level with flexible shooting angles. 
Both provide 100% field of view to ensure you’re not missing any of the action at the periphery of the frame, and image output between the LVF and the rear monitor is switched automatically using an eye sensor on the LVF, in order to conserve battery.

Capture moments in the blink of an eye 
Panasonic’s LUMIX G range is synonymous with fast and accurate Auto Focus (AF) functionality. With the LUMIX DMC-GX8 you can concentrate on framing your picture, safe in the knowledge that your camera will do the rest. The LUMIX DMC-GX8 takes even less time to set focus than its predecessors, analysing the scene and adjusting settings in the blink of an eye. The result is crystal clear photos and video every time, even when you’re dealing with fast-moving subjects such as wildlife or sports.

Practical connectivity 
The LUMIX DMC-GX8 integrates Wi-Fi connectivity to provide practical new ways to shoot, as wells as fast and easy sharing online. Thanks to NFC, just by touching devices together, you can connect the camera to a smartphone or tablet and post your favourite images and clips to social media, or email them to friends and family. 
Alternatively you can use your mobile device as a control for the LUMIX DMC-GX8, changing settings such as focus, aperture, shutter speed and ISO, before triggering the shutter release remotely.
