Lumix DMC-G85 (Black)
16mp Micro Four Thirds Mirrorless Digital Camera
The black Lumix DMC-G85 is a versatile Micro Four Thirds mirrorless digital camera designed for video and stills shooters, with UHD 4K video capabilities. With a 16 MP Live MOS Micro Four Thirds sensor, the G85 features low-light sensitivity to ISO 25600, continuous shooting at up to 10 fps with single-shot AF, 6 fps with continuous autofocus, 40 fps when using an electronic shutter function and 30 fps at 8MP with 4K PHOTO Modes. Built-in Photo Style and Creative Control modes offer even more control over your final image.
Alongside the fast burst shooting modes is a DFD (Depth-From-Defocus) autofocus system that ensures rapid focusing speeds for accurate subject tracking and consistently sharp imagery even in low-light conditions down to -4 EV. This contrast-detection type focus method benefits both still and video recording modes, as well as subject tracking applications where subject colour, size, and motion vectors are used to intelligently lock-onto the moving subjects and ensure precise focus. Alternatively, when working with manual focus, focus peaking is available that highlights bright edges of contrast with a coloured outline for quickly recognising your focus point, as well as depth of field distances. Touch MF Assist is also included for touch-to-focus operation.
Record 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) video with either 30p or 24p frames rates at 100Mbps. Full HD 1080p/60 is also supported at 28 Mbps in the MP4 format, along with HD recording and Full HD in AVCHD. A built-in stereo microphone can be used during recording and features an integrated wind-cut filter, or an optional external microphone can be added via the 3.5mm jack.
Benefitting working in difficult lighting conditions, 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilisation can be used to dramatically reduce the appearance of camera shake, and this IS system pairs with select lens' image stabilisation systems for Dual I.S.
All this is complimented by a durable weather-sealed construction that ensures the G85 is dust- and splash-proof for peace of mind when working in changeable environments. An integrated 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder offers a bright, clear eye-level viewing, or use the 3.0" 1.04m-dot rear touchscreen LCD monitor which has a free-angle design to make working from high and low angles simple. Ten programmable function buttons can be used to control a wide variety of settings and tools, and Wi-Fi is also built-in to allow for wireless sharing and remote camera control from linked smartphones and tablets.
