OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In the “GX” series of the Panasonic price list, a new compact mirrorless with squared shapes has entered. It is the Panasonic Lumix GX8 – heir to the Lumix GX7 model – strong with a 20.3 megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor (compared to the 16 megapixel of the previous Micro Quattro Terzi models), combined with a new Venus Engine image processor with Quad-core CPU, 3-inch display and 1,040k points swivel (180 degrees horizontally and 250 degrees vertically) of the touchscreen type and a 2.360k dots electronic viewfinder, also adjustable with angle up to 90 ° (usable, therefore, also as a sort of viewfinder in the cockpit.) Both displays have coverage of 100% of the field framed and the function Manual Monitor Adjustment, to adjust separately brightness, contrast, and saturation.

The transition from the monitor to the view through the LVF viewfinder takes place automatically thanks to the integrated proximity sensor.

The magnesium alloy machine body is protected against water and dust thanks to a series of gaskets. Wi-Fi with NFC allows the sharing of images via a smartphone or tablet. It is also possible to use mobile devices as a remote control for LUMIX GX8, remotely managing parameters such as focusing, aperture, shutter speed, and sensitivity.

Among the features of the Panasonic GX8, the Multiple Panorama Mode, the Focus Peaking function, which facilitates manual focusing and silent shooting mode.

It is possible to shoot bursts of 8 photos per second. The mechanical shutter works with times up to 1/8000 of a second, but compared to the GX7 there is now also the possibility to use the electronic curtain with times up to 1 / 16,000 of a second.

From the flagship, Panasonic GH4, the Lumix GX8 inherits the contrast autofocus system Depth From Defocus (DFD) (focusing speed declared by the manufacturer only 0.07 sec). In addition, a new algorithm allows, according to Panasonic, better performance of 200% in tracking the subject compared to those of the GX7.

“Unlike the traditional tracking system, which is based exclusively on color, the new tracking system also takes into consideration the size and the displacement vector of the subject, hooking it and offering images in perfect focus each time the shutter is pressed. Low Light AF technology enables precise focusing even in extremely critical lighting conditions. “

On the front of the blur, the Dual IS system uses tandem the stabilizer built into the machine and the lens promising still images in any shooting condition (movement of the machine, difficult lighting conditions).

As for video shooting, the Panasonic Lumix GX8 offers 4K and 2.5mm microphone input. LUMIX GX8 records MP4 videos at QFHD 4K resolution of 3.840 x 2.160 pixels at 25p (50Hz) or 24p, in addition to traditional Full HD video 1,920 x 1,080 pixels at 60p (50 Hz) in AVCHD Progressive or MP4 format (MPEG-4 / H .264) with full-time focus.

In addition to 4K movies, even 4k photos, thanks to the “4K Photo” function that allows you to extract 8-megapixel images from movies.

LUMIX GX8 has three 4K Photo modes:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

• 4K Burst Shooting: record up to 30 minutes of video at 30 frames per second; It activates like the traditional burst, that is by holding down the shutter button.

• 4K Burst (Start / Stop): it is activated by pressing the shutter release button and ending with a second press of the shutter release button. Useful for scenes that require longer waiting times before identifying the decisive moment.

• 4K Pre-burst: automatically records 30 frames in the second antecedent and 30 more in the one after the shutter release button, giving as many as 60 opportunities to capture the perfect moment.

The 4K Burst Shooting and 4K Burst (Start / Stop) modes allow you to record almost 30 minutes of footage at a time, offering tens of thousands of images to choose from, in a wide range of formats: 3.840 × 2.160 (16: 9 ), 3.328 × 2.496 (4: 3), 3.504 × 2.336 (3: 2), 2.880 × 2.880 (1: 1).
