This Panasonic DMC-GX8 Bundle comes with: Adorama Gift Certificate and a Panasonic DMC-GX8 and Shipping is free! Plus Free Bonus items: Panasonic 12-60mm MirrorlessPanasonic DMC-GX8 (GX8) Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Camera features a host of advanced functions packed in a splash/dust-proof rugged design. The DMC-GX8 integrates Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) for the first time in the LUMIX G series to gain powerful vibration correction. The Body I.S. and Lens I.S. can be switched in the LUMIX GX7 but both Body I.S. and Lens I.S. work at the same time to take maximum advantage of both stabilizers not only in wide angle but also with telephoto. Almost any type of vibration can be effectively suppressed with this innovative image stabilization system featuring max.3.5x (wide) / 1.5x (tele) wider correction angle. As a result, you can get clear handheld shots in low-lit situations. The new 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor excels both in response, sensitivity and dynamic range. The Venus Engine image processor dramatically boosts its performance with a quad-core CPU that performs high speed signal processing. Integrating superior noise reduction systems, the LUMIX GX8 enables shooting at max. ISO of 25,600. Sensitivity, gradation performance, resolution and color reproduction are dramatically improved to achieve even higher picture quality. It is also capable of high speed burst shooting at 8 fps (AFS) / 6 fps (AFC) helping users not to miss critical photo opportunities. 4K is the advanced definition of video imagery that boasts stunning detail. The LUMIX GX8 is capable of recording smooth, high-resolution QFHD 4K video in 3840x2160 at 30p (60Hz) or 24p in MP4. Taking advantage of 4K video recording performance, users can capture the photo opportunities at 30 fps in 8-megapixel equivalent resolution to save it as a 4K Photo. It is easy to get 4K photos with three 4K Photo modes; 4K Burst Shooting, 4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop) and 4K Pre-burst. The LUMIX GX8 has a large, tilt-able LVF that boasts the highest ever magnification ratio of approx. 1.54x / 0.77x (35mm camera equiv.) in the LUMIX G family of digital cameras. It also features 2,360K-dot high resolution and 100% field of view. High-precision, high-speed dual OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays are adopted for The Contrast AF System features DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology and excels in both speed and accuracy by exchanging the digital signal between the camera and the lens at max. 240 fps, resulting in ultra-fast auto focus of approx. 0.07 sec. A variety of extensive AF functions including Face/Eye Detection AF, Pinpoint AF, One-shot AF and advanced Low Light AF enhance usability for a variety of shooting situations. Thanks to the connectivity of Wi-Fi with NFC (Near Field Communication), users can connect the camera to their smartphone and/or tablet to expand the flexibility in shooting/storing/sharing images. Last but not least, the LUMIX GX8 has a highly durable, rugged design of a magnesium alloy die cast frame and sleek, sophisticated exterior with a grip and finely machined dials. The LUMIX GX8 includes the best possible technologies that will allow both the advanced amateur and the professional shooter to capture their subject perfectly every time.
Panasonic DMC-GX8 Features
4K Video and 4K Photo - Capture THAT MOMENT: THAT MOMENT you want to remember can occur at any time, and Panasonic's exclusive 4K PHOTO technology uses 30 frames per second in high resolution 4K Ultra HD Video to extract them as photos. You'll never miss THAT MOMENT again.
4K Photo Modes - Free Your Creativity: The 4K Photo function can be used in three different modes, all allowing you to capture that perfect moment at a high burst rate of 30 frames / photos per second (4K burst shooting 8-megapixel equivalent images, 4K Burst S/S (Start/Stop), 4K Pre-Burst)
Innovative, Dual-Image Stabilization: The LUMIX GX8 integrates Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) for more effective results. The GX8's body I.S. works in tandem with the LUMIX lens I.S. for maximum stabilization
Splashproof / Dustproof Rugged Design: The LUMIX GX8 camera body is composed of a magnesium alloy, full diecast front and rear frame. Tight seals on every joint, dial and button enable splashproof /dustproof performance.
20.3MP Live MOS Sensor: The LUMIX GX8 employs the newly-developed 20.3-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensorthat achieves high-speed bursts, ISO25600 high sensitivity, and a wider dynamic range. Combined with the Venus Engine, the GX8 achieves clear image rendering with minimum noise, even in low-light situations.
A Wide Lineup of LUMIX G Lenses: Panasonic LUMIX G DSLM (Digital Single Lens Mirrorless) cameras offer a wide variety of digital, interchangeable lenses. Many feature Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) compatibility when mounted to the LUMIX GX8 . Even those without O.I.S. can be used.
Everything in the Right Place: The LUMIX GX8 features a premium flat body with front/rear dials to control aperture and shutter speed settings. Settings can also be assigned to eight function buttons. In addition, it is possible to adjust the exposure compensation with a dedicated dial.
Large OLED LVF: The LUMIX GX8 comes with a high-resolution (2,360k-dot), tiltable OLED Live ViewFinder which affords high visibility thanks to a 10,000:1 contrast ratio and a high 0.77x magnification (35mm camera equivalent). An optional eyecup (DMW-EC3) made of elastic material enhances comfort.
Free-angle OLED Monitor: The 1040k-dot rear monitor boasts tilt & swivel capability, making it more comfortable even for vertical composition. Plus, its touch control allows you toquickly set focus just by touching the subject on the screen.
Fast and Precise AF Tracking: With the new AF Tracking algorithm, not only the color but also the size and motion vector of the target are recognized, enabling the camera to lock on the subject even more securely.
High Speed Auto-Focusing with DFD Technology: Panasonic's Depth-From-Defocus (DFD) Auto Focus technology instantly calculates the distance between foreground and background and quickly brings the subject into focus with one fast, continuous movement. This new system results in AF speeds up to 0.07 seconds and a burst shooting of 6 frames per second
Focusing in Low Light Conditions - Star Light AF: Low Light Auto Focus makes it possible to focus on subjects more precisely in -4EV low light situations. In addition, the LUMIX GX8 includes a new Starlight AF feature which lets you shoot a starry night sky using auto focus.
Maximum 1/8000 second Fast Shutter Speed: High shutter speed at maximum 1/8000 second enables precise capture of fast-moving subjects, and also allows you to open the aperture in bright outdoorenvironments. A maximum 1/16000 second with an electronic shutter reduces washouts even under strong sunlight
