Park Picks 2017 Highly Commended: Best Mirrorless Camera

Panasonic have become well known in the mirrorless camera market with their range of Lumix G cameras often boasting unique technologies for creative image output.

The GX80 has managed to come to the market with a whole host of these, and not at a great cost - perhaps benefiting from the fact that Panasonic has had these technologies for a bit longer now and they have cascaded down to their lower and mid range cameras.

Some of these features are 4K photo where you can grab an 8MP still frame from a short 4K video, post-focus where you can choose a focal point after the event, and video capture in 4K at 30p.

In body image stabilisation and an electronic viewfinder with an impressive 2,764k dots make this camera seem even more surprising that it sits within this price range.

We Love
  • The 16 megapixel sensor without a low-pass filter
  • The addition of Post Focus
  • Its advanced 5-axis Dual I.S. image stabilisation




The LUMIX DMC-GX80 features a high quality 16 megapixel Live MOS image sensor, but Panasonic have removed its low-pass filter which offers around a 10% improvement in limiting resolution, and minimises false colour and moire from the newly designed Venus image processing engine.

Image stabilisation

The GX80 utilises a new 5-axis Dual I.S. image stabiliser which works for both photo and video modes and 4K photo shooting, offering 5-axis body I.S. and 2-axis lens I.S from wide-angle to telephoto settings.

4K capability

Not only does the DMC-GX80 capture 4K video (3840 x 2160) up to 30p, but also 4K photo with a number of features, including Post Focus - with a dedicated 4K Photo/Post focus button. 30fps 4K burst, 4K burst (s/s), and 4K pre-burst are also available in 4K photo mode, as well as 8fps in standard mode. You can read more about Post Focus in our blog post Post Focus Explained: Understanding Panasonic Post Focus.

The GX80 has a Light Composition feature which lets you layer multiple 4K images into a single properly exposed image, as well as 4K Live Cropping, which lets you crop a 4K video down to an HD file in-camera. Additionally, you can pan within a video, or zoom in without the need to adjust focal length when filming.


The LUMIX GX80 has a number of useful bracketing options - exposure, white balance, focus, and aperture bracketing - so you have a choice of a range of different outcomes and can rest assured that your subject will be correctly captured, just as you intended.

L.Monochrome PhotoStyle

The GX80 has a new Photo Style option called L.Monochrome, which offers specially adjusted gamma for monochrome and delivers outstanding deep blacks with rich gradation - just as you would get with traditional black and white film.

LVF and monitor

The GX80 features a high resolution 2,764-k dot Live Viewfinder which offer stable framing and brilliant visibility, even when shooting under bright sunlight.

It has a 3 inch 1,040k-dot LCD monitor that can be tilted up by 80° - ideal for shooting at low angles or on a tripod - and can be tilted down by 45°, so shooting over crowds of people for example, is simple.

Wi-Fi and QR Code connection

The GX80 offers quick and easy password-less connection via Wi-Fi, as well as QR code connection.
