The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G85 Body Only is the latest member of the LUMIX G Series mirrorless family. Designed for field photography, the camera’s weather-sealed splash and dustproof design protects all joints, dials and buttons against extreme conditions. A high-quality magnesium-alloy full diecast front frame ensures the compact body is both rugged and lightweight, while the optional rugged battery grip supports extended shooting, doubling battery life, and has an improved ergonomic design with easy access to main controls in portrait orientation.

Panasonic has further strengthened the camera with 5-Axis Dual IS 2 for excellent stability in a range of situations. A new high-precision gyrosensor joins the Dual IS system of 5-axis in-body stabilisation and 2-axis optical stabilisation in the lens. This makes it possible to use up to five stops slower shutter speed at a focal length of up to 280mm, an amazing feat that is available in both photo and video.

The new electromagnetically-driven shutter is quiet and reduces shutter-induced vibration for excellent sharpness – delivering speeds from 60 sec to 1/4000 sec – backed by the camera’s solid magnesium frame. An electronic first-curtain shutter can be used for shooting at up to 1/2000 sec, ideal for use in situations when a slight, pixel level of vibration matters – such as serious landscape photography.

Ensuring precise focus, the OLED Live View Finder (2360K-dot) has an increased magnification of 0.74x (35mm camera equivalent). The high-speed OLED technology delivers a time lag of less than 0.01 sec and exceptional 10,000:1 contrast ratio. An eyepoint distance of 20mm improves visibility for glasses wearers. Conveniently, a new LVF power saving mode dramatically increases battery life from around 320 to up to 800 images per charge by detecting when the eye moves away from the viewfinder and powering down, with a selectable delay time of 3, 5 or 10 seconds.

For enhanced resolution and detail, the camera’s 16 Megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor has the Low Pass Filter removed, and the Venus Engine Processor minimises moiré. The Venus Engine also has enhanced capabilities for tracking fast-moving subjects, which prevents out-of-focus shots in these situations. The new AF Sensitivity mode lets the user set tracking sensitivity according to the shooting requirement.

Panasonic has upgraded its Post Focus feature to include Focus Stacking, which allows the user to refocus their shot after they’ve taken it, or combine focus points to achieve complete foreground to background focus.


Weatherproof Video and Photo All-Rounder
With a weatherproof body, 5-axis Dual I.S.2, impressive image and video quality plus 4K technology, the LUMIX G85 is ready for adventure!

The One For the Adventure
When life's adventures take you places, you need a camera that can keep up. Photographer, Mitchell Kanashkevich chose the LUMIX G85 on his recent journey to Romania. Perfect for outdoor shooting, the Dual Image Stabiliser helps you take crisper, clearer images in difficult or fast-moving environments, while the weather-sealed compact body allows for huge flexibility wherever your trip takes you.

Make Moving Images, Not Blurry Ones
Life doesn't stand still for you to capture it. That's why the LUMIX G85 integrates 5-Axis Dual I.S.2 (Image Stabiliser)*, combining body and lens stabilisation to gain more powerful handshake correction and compensating your shots up to 5 F-Stops**. The 5-axis stabilisation works in both wide and telephoto photography and motion picture recording including 4K Video.

Never Miss the Perfect Shot
The 4K PHOTO feature on the LUMIX G85 allows you to capture the perfect moment by selecting a frame from a video sequence (shot at 30fps) in camera, and saving it as an individual high-res image. Simply shoot, select and save, to make those fleeting moments unmissable in every sense.

Sealed Body and Lens Design For Any Adventure
Rugged enough to withstand even the most challenging environments, the LUMIX G85 boasts a splash/dustproof body and kit lens. With the latest features condensed into a compact and mobile design, it gives you the flexibility and freedom to never stop exploring.

True-To-Life Detail
The G85's 16-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor with no low pass filter helps you capture sharper images with more detail, wherever your journeys take you.

Your Adventures Have Never Looked Better
With the highest quality of 4K Video, LUMIX G85 lets you record every twist and turn of your journey in up to 4x the resolution of Full HD. More detail, in more clarity, means more memories to look back on, in perfect quality.

What You See is What You Shoot
The LUMIX G85's Live View Finder with 0,74x (35mm equiv.) magnification ratio gives you the freedom to frame your shot and capture everything you see. Plus, the 2360K-dot high resolution and approximately 100% colour reproduction gives you high visibility under any circumstances.

Ultra High Speed Focusing
Capture even the fastest moving action thanks to DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology. It instantly calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels, and achieves ultrahigh-speed AF and 6-fps burst shooting with AFC. 9-fps burst shooting with AFS is also available.

** 5-Axis Dual I.S. 2 works when attaching the lens that are compatible with it. Firmware update of the lens is also required.
** Based on the CIPA standard. Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=50-140mm (35mm film camera equivalent f=100-280mm), when H-FS14140 is used.

* About motion picture recording / 4K PHOTO recording - Use a card with SD Speed Class with "Class 4" or higher when recording motion pictures. - Use a card with SD Speed Class with "UHS-I / UHS-II UHS Speed Class 3 (U3)" when recording motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K] or [4K PHOTO]. (SD speed class is the speed standard regarding continuous writing.) - MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K]: - When using an SDHC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately. - When using an SDXC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 96 GB or 3 hours 4 minutes in length, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately. - MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [FHD] [HD]: - You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB or 30 minutes in length, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately. - When the ambient temperature is high or continuous recording is performed, the camera may stop the recording to protect itself. Wait until the camera cools down. ** For [4K] video output, use an HDMI cable that has the HDMI logo on it, and that is described as"4K compatible".
