Powerful 4K feature suite

DC-GX850K Lumix G - 4k photo camera

The GX850 has Panasonic’s very latest 4K capabilities, including 4K video recording at 4x the resolution of Full HD. Say goodbye to the disappointment of pressing the shutter too early or too late – the camera is designed to capture the unmissable moment. 4K Photo captures split-second shots with total precision by shooting 30 frames per second before and after the shutter is released. You’ll also love Batch Save stores for storing a burst sequence of up to 150 frames at just one press of a button and Light Composition which combines the brightest pixels from a series of images to create vibrant night scenes such as fireworks. You can even use 4K Photo in selfie mode to capture awesome selfies in action at 30 frames per second.

Shoot now, focus later

LUMIX-exclusive Post Focus technology allows you to take a photo and then choose your focal point later. With each shutter press, Post Focus mode captures all possible focus points from foreground to background. Ideal for situations such as macro or food photography, the key benefit of the new mode is the ability to refine the image post-shot to get sharp, accurate focus on a precise area and then select a preferred shot or number of shots. What’s more, with the new Focus Stacking feature available with the new GX850, you can easily select several focus points in the same image.

High-resolution, responsive shooting

The stylish, sleek DC-GX850 compact system camera has a high-quality 16.0 megapixel sensor for crisp, detailed images, combined with technologies for precise focus and fast, responsive shooting. An attractive and versatile matching silver LUMIX G lens is supplied with the camera – the LUMIX G VARIO 12-32mm / F3.5-F5.6 ASPH./MEGA OIS.

Hands free selfies with the flip-up monitor

The GX850 features a large, high visibility, touch-control monitor that flips 180 degrees for easy selfies that then are easy to share using Wi-Fi and the Panasonic Image App. Once the camera’s monitor is flipped up, ‘Self Shot Mode’ is automatically triggered to capture that perfect self-portrait. This mode includes ‘Face Shutter’ and ‘Buddy Shutter’, which let you take your shot when the camera is out of arm’s reach or when using a selfie stick. The GX850 even offers a remote control ‘Jump Snap’ feature for fun group shots and a Snap Movie mode that makes it easy capture and share a 2.8-second creative video across Vine, Instagram and Facebook.

Wi-Fi® and Easy Uploads

Put your next post online with ease and inspire your followers. With Wi-Fi connectivity, you can instantly upload and share your pictures on social media using the ‘Panasonic Image App’ on your smartphone or tablet.
