Panasonic Lumix Dmc - Gx85 Offers 16mp Sensor With No Aa Filter


Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85 offers 16MP sensor with no AA filterPanasonic has just announced its Lumix DMC-GX85 (GX80 outside of North America), a less expensive sibling to the Lumix GX8 that features a 16MP Live MOS sensor with no AA filter, a redesigned shutter mechanism, and 5-axis Dual IS.
Panasonic claims the removal of the anti-aliasing filter boosts fine detail resolution by 10%, and an electromagnet-driven shutter mechanism aims to reduce blur from shutter shock – an issue we noted when we reviewed the GX8.

The GX85 offers 'Dual IS', which combines its 5-axis in-body stabilization with in-lens OIS, offering up to 4.5 stops of shake reduction. That's an update to the GX8's 4-axis in-body system. Naturally, the GX85 carries 4K/UHD 30p video shooting and all of the related photography features, including 4K Photo and Post Focus. Speaking of focus, the GX85 offers the same 'Depth from Defocus' system that really impressed us on the GX8.

The GX85 provides a fixed 2764K-dot equivalent electronic viewfinder, and its 3" 1.04M-dot touch screen monitor tilts up by 80° and downward by 45°. Built-in Wi-Fi and a new L. Monochrome photo style mode are also included.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85 will go on sale at the end of May for $799/£599 with a 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 collapsible kit zoom. UK shoppers will also have body-only (£509) and or a bundle with the 12-32mm and 35-100mm lenses (£729) options.
