Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 Review

From the line of excellent photo snappers, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is not aimed to disappoint. Panasonic has once again released a new camera that will surely showcase its latest technologies and, perhaps, some improvements on its predecessors. The Lumix GX8 is one camera that photographers, including photographer Birmingham, will surely clamor for.

At long last, Panasonic finally decided to let go of its 16-megapixel Micro Four Thirds (MFT) sensors. The Lumix GX8 features a 20.3-megapixel version of the sensor – making it Panasonic’s camera with the highest resolution MFT sensor. Sharp and crisp images are to be expected with each snap.

The Lumix GX8 is also dust and splash proof – perfect for photoshoots with rough and harsh environment. This feature is new for Panasonic, since most of its cameras do not contain this ability.

A few performance improvements were also made for the Lumix GX8. Unlike other Panorama cameras, the Lumix GX8 combines both sensor-shift and optical stabilization. This leads to better and more enhance image stabilization. Each photo captured is enabled to an in-camera raw file conversion to JPEG. Unwanted elements, or photo noise, can be eliminated using the content-aware erase feature. It also has a monochrome filter and other filters used in manual and semi-manual exposure modes.

The Lumix GX8 also excels in video recording. Its 4K video capabilities and burst shooting modes allow users, especially photographer Birmingham, to capture stunning videos.

Certainly, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 is an investment for photographers and avid photo-takers. It is your classic camera combined with the latest features.
