When life's adventures take you places, you need a camera that can keep up. Photographer, Mitchell Kanashkevich chose the LUMIX G85 on his recent journey to Romania. Perfect for outdoor shooting, the Dual Image Stabilizer helps you take crisper, clearer images in difficult or fast-moving environments. The weather-sealed compact body and lens kit allows for huge flexibility wherever your trip takes you.

Make moving images

Life doesn't stand still for you to capture it. That's why the LUMIX G85 integrates 5-Axis Dual I.S.2 (Image Stabilizer), combining body and lens stabilization to gain more powerful handshake correction and compensating your shots up to 5 F-Stops. The 5-axis stabilization works in both wide and telephoto photography and motion picture recording including 4K Video.

Change the lens, expand your creativity

LUMIX G85 high-precision gyrosensor and new algorithm increases the compensation power of the 5-Axis Body I.S. This awesome power corrects hand-shake for all lenses, including classic lenses not equipped with O.I.S.

Shutter shock reduction

The LUMIX G85 employs an electromagnetic drive in the shutter unit. The shock caused by the movement of the shutter diaphragm is dramatically reduced and the shutter sound is minimized. Together with the use of solid magnesium for the front panel, this reduces shutter shock by approximately 90% compared with the predecessor G7. This shock reduction lets you use the mechanical shutter even in situations where there was previously no choice but to use the electronic shutter.

Sealed Body & Rugged Design

Rugged enough to withstand even the most challenging environments, the LUMIX G85 boasts a splash / dust resistant body and lens kit (included with DMC-G85MK only). With the latest features condensed into a compact and mobile design, it gives you the flexibility and freedom to never stop exploring.
