Make Your Selfies Even More Beautiful
Take your selfies to the next level with the LUMIX GF8. You’ll love the tilting monitor and hands-free selfie mode, along with integrated beauty retouch features and Wi-Fi for easy selfie sharing.

Instantly Beautiful Selfies
As soon as you flip the monitor to 180º Self Shot Mode, integrated beauty functions instantly make you look even more gorgeous. Soft Skin creates a smooth finish, Defocusing softens the area around your face and Slimming makes you look fitter. After shooting, you can even use Creative Control to add artistic effects.

Flawless Finish with Beauty Retouch
Who needs a makeup artist? After shooting your selfie, you can use the Beauty Retouch feature to make your photo flawless. Aesthetic Retouch lets you apply effects to your face, including clearing skin texture, adjusting face shape, whitening your teeth and more. With Makeup Retouch, you can choose from an extensive makeup palette and apply foundation, lipstick, cheek colour and eye shadow.

Selfie Snapping is So Easy
Forget about holding an awkward position to snap the perfect selfie. The GF8 lets you release the shutter using your left or right hand, or you can even go ‘hands-free’! Face Shutter triggers the shutter after you wave your hand in front of your face, Buddy Shutter triggers when the camera detects two faces close together, and Jump Snap releases the shutter when you jump in the air.

Dual Shutter Button
The Fn1 (function) button provides an extra means of releasing the shutter when holding the camera in just your left or right hand for selfie.

Easy Image Sharing with Wi-Fi
You’ve taken some great images with the LUMIX GF8 now you want to show them off. You can instantly upload and share your pictures on social media using the ‘Panasonic Image App’ on a smartphone or tablet. Sharing shots when browsing on the camera is also quicker thanks to a direct uploading capability.

Stylish Design to Match Any Occasion
The LUMIX GF8 features a sleek, stylish profile with a design that echoes classic camera styles. Offering a high level of mobility and operability for daily use, it still cleverly manages to include a built-in flash. And, whether you’re shooting in the city or enjoying the countryside, the camera’s fashionable colors are a perfect complement.
