Less bulky than a DSLR, the LUMIX G85 is the compact 4K video-enabled Micro Four Thirds Mirrorless (DSLM) camera with true-to-life photo image quality.
Newly developed in-body gyro sensor adds class-leading 5-axis body stabilization that when mated to LUMIX 2-axis optically stabilized lenses for a “Dual IS” effect, is worth nearly 5 f-stops in video and still capture.
4K Video recording at 30p/24p 100 Mbps plus a 3.5mm port for external microphones. (Full HD 60p 28Mbps)
Weather sealed splashproof and dustproof, rugged enough to withstand even the most challenging environments.
16-Megapixel MFT eliminates the need for low-pass sensor filters while boosting fine detail resolving power sensor.
Never miss a photo with 3 unique 4K Ultra HD Video pause and save 4K Photo Modes
Expand creative possibilities with 27 (and growing) interchangeable lens options.

The Panasonic LUMIX G85 offers over 27 LUMIX compact lens options built on the next-generation interchangeable lens camera standard (Micro Four Thirds) pioneered by Panasonic. Its “mirrorless” design enables a lighter, more compact camera body that includes cutting-edge video, audio, creative controls, wireless, intelligent-focusing, gyro sensor control in body image stabilization and exposure technologies not possible with traditional DSLRs. And with the exclusive LUMIX 4K Ultra HD video pause and export as a 4K PHOTO mode, you’ll never again miss that one shot that perfectly captures a scene.
Keeps Pace With Your PhotographyWhen life's adventures take you places, you need a camera that keeps up. Photographer Mitchell Kanashkevich took the LUMIX G85 on a journey to Romania. Perfect for outdoor shooting, the Dual Image Stabilizer helped him take crisper, clearer images in difficult and fast-moving environments, while the compact, weather-sealed body and kit lens improved flexibility wherever he went. See the difference a LUMIX G85 makes on your adventures, too.
5-Axis Gyro Sensor CompensationWith the LUMIX G85, a new gyro sensor increases the image stability compensation power of the 5-Axis Body image stabilization to correct hand-shake for all lenses, including classic lenses not equipped with optical image stabilization.
Dual I.S. Effective To 5 StopsThe LUMIX G85 integrates 5-Axis Dual I.S.2 (Image Stabilizer)*, combining 5-axis body and 2-axis lens stabilization for more effective handshake correction and compensation for shots up to 5 f-stops**. The 5-axis stabilization works in both wide and telephoto photography and motion picture recording, including 4K Video.
A Rugged Sealed BodyRugged enough to withstand even the most challenging environments, the splash/dustproof body gives you the flexibility and freedom to never stop exploring. The thick, ergonomically designed grip provides stable shooting even with one hand.
4K Photo - Never Miss That ShotLUMIX-pioneered 4K PHOTO lets you capture the perfect moment by selecting single frames from a 4K video sequence shot at a blistering 30fps to save as individual high-res images.
Extend Your Battery LifeProlong battery life to approximately 800–900* images with a power-saving eye sensor that detects when your eye moves away from the viewfinder and automatically enter Sleep mode.

A Grip On PowerShoot longer with two batteries — one in the camera, the other in the optional battery grip (DMW-BGG1). The grip also makes handling the camera more comfortable, even in vertical angle shooting and it perfectly matches the camera's rugged splash/dustproof design.
Shoot Now, Focus LaterEnjoy the creative freedom of being able to decide what you want in focus, even after you shoot. Exclusive POST FOCUS mode gives you the power to review an image and touch the area you'd like to be pinpoint sharp. What's more, a new Focus Stacking feature lets you easily select several focus points in the same image.
Shutter Shock ReductionThe LUMIX G85 includes a new electromagnetic drive in the shutter unit. The shock caused by movement of the shutter diaphragm is dramatically reduced and the shutter sound is significantly minimized. Together with the use of a new solid magnesium front panel, shutter shock is reduced by approximately 90% compared with the LUMIX G7.

DFD - Ultra High Speed FocusingThanks to the DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology that instantly calculates distance to subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels, ultra-high-speed AF and 6-fps burst shooting with AFC, and 9-fps burst shooting with AFS is possible. The compatibility of the UHS-II SDXC/SDHC Memory Card and increased buffer memory elevate the maximum number of recordable images in consecutive shooting up to 300 (JPEG) / 45 (RAW) or more.
What You See Is What You GetThe Live View Finder with 0.74X (35mm equiv.) magnification ratio gives you the freedom to frame your shot and capture everything you see. Plus, 2360K-dot high resolution and approximately 100% color reproduction provides high visibility under any circumstances.
True-to-Life DetailThe 16-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor with no low pass filter helps capture sharper images with more detail.
Impressive Color ReproductionShoot true-to-life images with excellent resolution, high contrast and impressive color reproduction. Removing the Low Pass Filter improves quality by approximately 10%* while the Venus Engine designed for the LUMIX G85 detects high-frequency components to suppress the generation of moiré. Combining the Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine renders clear images with minimum noise even in low-light situations and a maximum sensitivity of ISO25600.
Life has Never Looked so GoodWith highest quality 4K Video, the LUMIX G85 lets you record every journey's twists and turns in up to 4X the resolution of Full HD. More detail and more clarity means more memories to look back on, all in perfect quality.

NOTE * About motion picture recording / 4K PHOTO recording - Use a card with SD Speed Class with "Class 4" or higher when recording motion pictures. - Use a card with SD Speed Class with "UHS-I / UHS-II UHS Speed Class 3 (U3)" when recording motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K] or [4K PHOTO]. (SD speed class is the speed standard regarding continuous writing.) - MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [4K]: - When using an SDHC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately. - When using an SDXC memory card: You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 96 GB or 3 hours 4 minutes in length, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately. - MP4 motion pictures with [MP4] in [FHD] [HD]: - You can continue recording without interruption even if the file size exceeds 4 GB or 30 minutes in length, but the motion picture file will be divided and recorded/played back separately. - When the ambient temperature is high or continuous recording is performed, the camera may stop the recording to protect itself. Wait until the camera cools down. ** For [4K] video output, use an HDMI cable that has the HDMI logo on it, and that is described as"4K compatible".
