The Panasonic Lumix DMC GX8 is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera that uses the Micro Four Thirds mount. The successor to the popular Lumix GX7, it was the first Micro Four Thirds model to feature a sensor with 20.3MP instead of 16MP and the first Lumix to have built-in Dual I.S. (image stabilisation).
The camera is immediately recognisable due to its flat-topped design and tilting OLED electronic viewfinder, and boasts features which were relatively new at the time of its release, such as 4K video at 30fps, 4K PHOTO modes, and Panasonic’s Depth from Defocus (DFD) contrast detection autofocus system.
