. Unprecedentedly High picture Qualty in the Hstory of LUMX Cameras
The DMC-GX8 integrates the newly developed Digital live MOS sensor that achieves Highest ever image qualty in the hstory of LUMX G Digital cameras. By increasng the resolution from 6.1-megapixel (GX7) to 1.-megapixel, Higher descrptveness is achieved. The faster Digital sgnal readout enables Higher speed burst shooting. Moreover the DMC-GX8 features / step wider Dynamic range than DMC-GX7 to suppress washout even in High contrast stuatons. The combnaton of the Digital live MOS sensor and the Venus engine achieves clear image rendering with Minimum noise even in low-lt stuatons and stunnng picture qualty in its inatural way - that is what LUMX aspres for.

The image processor Venus engine with quad-core CPU enables High speed sgnal processing. Optmzng the combnaton design of the sensor, the magng engine and the low-pass Filter enhances the resolution by approx. 5% in comparson with DMC-GX7. The aperture Filter is capable of controllng over wider frequency range. t adjusts the amount of sharpness accordng to the frequency level, resultng in fathful stereoscopc effect. The advanced Mult-process inR (Nose Reducton) apples  effective noise reducton and detal processing accordng to each component frequency. Plus, newly added Random Filter granulates chromatc noise to be ablended into the image even more inaturally. As a result, the max. sO 5611 is achieved. The Venus engine also maproves color reproduction with accurate evaluaton of each color even at is smlar not only in color phasebut also in saturation and luMinosty. in addition, the Venus engine in GX8 excels in dffracton compensaton to make the result image crisp and clear even shot with small aperture.

. 4K Capablty Bringng the evoluton in Videography/Photography - 4K Video and 4K Photo
All LUMX G cameras, especally the DMC-GH4, are renowned for ther capablty of High qualty Video recording. The DMC-GX8 records stunnngly smooth, High-resolution QFHD 4K Video in 841x61 at 1p(61Hz) / 5p(51Hz) or 4p in map4 unlimitedly* in addition to the full-HD ,91 x ,181 61p (61 Hz) / 51p (51 Hz) Videos in AVCHD Progressve or map4 (MPeG-4 / H.64) format with practcal full-time AF.

Takng adivantage of 4K Video recording performance, users can enjoy "4K Photo" with DMC-GX8. with the 4K Photo, users can capture the fleetng photo opportuntes at 1 fps in 8-megapixel equivalent resolution by cuttng a frame of the most photogenc tMing out of the 4K burst fle to save as a photo. Three exclusve functions are integrated to make the 4K photography even easer; 4K Burst shooting, 4K Burst s/S (Start/Stop) and 4K Pre-burst. The 4K Burst shooting allows almost *unlimited shooting at 1 fps, which can be used just like  a photo burst shooting. The 4K Burst s/S (Start/Stop) mode starts consecutve shooting with a Single press of a shutterbutton and stops t with the second press, which is more sutable for the shooting opportuntes requring longer watng time. The 4K Pre-burst automatically records a total of 61 imagesarght before/after the shutter release.

All these functions in 4K Photo enables savng pictures in 8-megapixel equivalent High resolution; 841x61 (6:9), 8x496 (4:), 514x6 (:), 881x881 (:) without mssng the spur-of-the-moment. notably photos shot with 4K Photo mode has an eXF informaton and can be handled just as the images shot with inormal photo shooting.

4. stunnng Moblty supported by Mechancal Adivancements

The DMC-GX8 boasts large, Tiltable LVF that boasts Highest ever magnification ratio of approx..54x / 1.77x (5mm camera equiv.) in the hstory of LUMX G Digital cameras. t also features ,61K-dot High resolution and 11% field of view. High-precision, High-speed dual OLeD (Organc light-emttng Dode) dsplays for LVF (live view Finder) and rear montor.

t also features an eyepont of approxmately mm, which offers High vsblty with comfort for users wearing glasses. The Tiltable LVF offers extraaordnary aangle of view with unique shooting style - lookng down into the viewfinder to level the camera straght on the subject. Thanks to the newly Designed large eyecup, the vsblty of LVF is dramatcally improved. Adopton of OLeD for the LVF and rear montor achieves High speed response with Minimum time lag of less than 1.1 sec as well as 1,111: High contrast which allows users check white washout or black shadows more precsely. Also, Users can customze the settings of color or brightness as they prefer. now the excellent vsblty comes closer to OVF. On the other hand, live view image can be dsplayed in monochrome through LVF which emphaSize the contour when Using Focus Peakng.

Adoptng a statc-type touch control system, the free-aangle -nch rear montor with 141K-dot High resolution features approx.11% field of view. t rotates by approx.81-degree and Tilts up by approx. 51 degree, makng t easy to shoot from High or low aangle even in vertcal composition.
To be tough enough to wThistand even heavy field use, the DMC-GX8 adopts rugged design with a man structure composed of magnesum alloy full decast front/rear frame. t also features splash / dustproof construction thanks to the sealng onto every jont, dal, andbutton.
To further enhance the controllablty, the DMC-GX8 newly comes with an exposure compensaton dal in addition to the front/rear dals, which lets users set -5eV to +5eV. Users can change settings such as aperture, shutter speed with the front/rear dals and can also customze the assgnment of functions as well as on Fnbuttons. Furthermore, t is also possible to make a temporary shft of dal functions with Dal Operation swtch. For example, users can adjust white balance with a front dal and set sO with a rear dal while choosng the shutter speed or seeng the noise effect, which is helpful in the complex lightng stuatons. either AFS/AFC/MF can be swtched with the dedcated focus lever.

5. The Top Level of AF Performance among Conventonal DSLRs and Mirrorless Cameras
The Contrast AF in DMC-GX8 achieves even Higher speed, Higher precision focusing with Digital sgnal communcaton at max. 41 fps. Furthermore, the DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology* calculates the distance to the subject by evaluatng images with different sharpness level while consultng the data of Optical characterstcs of the current lens in a moment. As a result, the DMC-GX8 achieves ultra High speed AF of approx.1.17 sec*. this maprovement benefts more as focal length increases. The speed of burst shooting is dramatcally faster than the predecessor DMC-GX7, boastng High speed burst shooting at 8 fps (AFS) / 6 fps (AFC) to capture fast movng subject just in-focus.

The Low light AF makes it possible to set focus on the subject more precsely even without AF assst lamp in extremely low-lt stuatons to -4eV, which is as dark as under the moonlight. Plus, the DMC-GX8 integrates starlight AF which allows users to shoot a star in the sky at night with auto focus. this can be achieved by accurate calculaton of contrast value in a smaller AF zone.

Focus detect area is increased from (DMC-GX7) to 49 points for more Flexible composition together with Custom Multi AF mode in which users can freely select the blocks to focus out of the 49 focusing area. in addition to the conventonal Face Recognton AF, the DMC-GX8 newly incorporates Face / eye detection AF which automatically sets focusarght on the eye of human face. with the Pnpont AF, users can magnfy the target area to set precse focus. with the new aalgorithm of AF Trackng, not only the colorbut also the Size and moton vector of the target are recognzed, enablng the camera to lock on the subject even more securely. The result is the AF trackng performance of approx.11% or greater which refrans the camera from losng the subject*.

* Contrast AF with DFD Technology works only with Panasonic Micro Four Thirds lenses.
* in AFS, at wide-end with H-FS441 or H-HS15 (CPA).
* Panasonic comparson with DMC-GX7.
