Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 Review


Panasonic has introduced a new compact system camera which sits in between the GX (single digit) and the GF ranges in terms of who it is aimed at. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 (also known as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85) features a 16 million pixel...

When the GX8 was announced, many people missed the smaller body size of the GX7 so its nice to see Panasonic bringing that kind of style back for its new addition.

Panasonic Lumix GX80 / GX85 review


The Panasonic Lumix GX80, or GX85 as it's known in North America, is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera based on the Micro Four Thirds standard. Announced in April 2016, it's aimed at a more mainstream market than the higher-end GX8, although...

Panasonic GX80/GX85


Panasonic's latest gives you an electronic viewfinder and lots more, in a compact rangefinder-style body

Excellent image quality ; Great set of features, including 4K video/photo modes ; Consistent and accurate AF performance

Ergonomics not as good as some rivals ; No minimum shutter speed option for Auto ISO ; Only 16MP compared to the 20MP of the GX8

Although the price may seem a little on the high side compared with competing cameras like the X-T10, the GX80 is a strong proposition that offers the ability to shoot 8MP images at 30 frames per second as well as touch-control.

Panasonic Lumix GX80 review: Small in scale, big on features


With the Lumix GF8 absent from British shores, we were beginning to wonder if Panasonic had bailed on the smaller-scale and more affordable compact system camera concept. But that's not the case, as the latest Lumix GX80 (or GX85 in the USA) stands to...

Super quiet shutter, great Dual IS (including sensor-based 5-axis stabilisation), quality images (first Lumix G to lose low-pass filter), solid build quality for an affordable price, Pinpoint AF, touchscreen

No ISO 100 option, image processing can negate critical detail (from ISO 3200), limited battery life, loses a stop in shutter speed (compared to GX8), continuous autofocus still not quite there

In many respects the Panasonic Lumix GX80 is a more desirable purchase option than its GX8 big brother: it's smaller, for starters, has the core viewfinder and tilt-angle LCD make-up included, adds 5-axis image stabilisation and, critically, is more...

Panasonic GX80 review


Panasonic's lens swapper packs in the features but doesn't go big on size – or price

Compact, lightweight build ; Impressive image quality ; Dripping with features

Some might miss the low-pass filter

A superb system camera at the lower-end of the price spectrum ///star rating 5

Panasonic Lumix GX80


The Panasonic Lumix GX80 is the company's newest compact system camera, and is designed to be a pared-down version of the more advanced GX8; it sits just above the GF6 in Panasonic's lineup.
