Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85 / G80 Review

 

Panasonic's G85 is weather-sealed, has 5-axis in-body stabilization, 4K video capture, a new focus stacking mode and a fully-articulating touchscreen. Does it live up to these impressive specifications? Learn more

The G85 is Panasonic's mid-level all-arounder. It is very much a refinement of the

Panasonic Lumix G85 targets outdoor photographers

 

Panasonic combines the G7 and the GX85 into the G85/G80, ruggedizes it and bulks up the video features.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G80 review

 

Don't let the mini-DSLR styling fool you - Panasonic's compact CSC has 4K video skills

Great image and video quality for the cash ; 4K Photos capture every moment ; Smart extras like focus stacking ; DSLR-lite design

Looks a little mainstream ; Doesn’t do enough to stand out

Ticks all the boxes for a mid-range CSC, with a few fancy features thrown on top, even if it doesn't win out in the style stakes

Panasonic Lumix G80 review: Affordable foray into 4K

 

Panasonic has put out a full spread of compact system cameras, with the Lumix G80 (or G81 in Germany; G85 in other territories, just to confuse the bejeezus out of you) filling the DSLR-style gap left open when the flat-design GX80 launched earlier in...

All the autofocus performance of the top-spec GH4, in-camera 5-axis dual image stabilisation works well, weather-sealed design at a fair price, 4K capture, vari-angle LCD

Front dial too easily knocked in its new design, sixth Fn button placement not ideal, 4K capture has limitations for high-end videographers, busies G-series lineup

The Lumix G80 might not be the most visually exciting camera in the world. Its DSLR looks are harmless, though, it's just perhaps not as eye-catching as the subtleties of its GX80 brother. The presence of this camera alongside the G7 also muddies the...

Panasonic Lumix G80 / G85 review

 

Big features squeezed into a small body

Excellent EVF and touchscreen ; Strong AF performance ; Good in-camera raw conversion ; Great results with 4K video

Only 16MP resolution ; Some over-complicated controls ; Interface could be simplified ; Noise reduction a little harsh

While not quite perfect, the G80’s feature set and performance make it one of the most compelling mid-range mirrorless propositions around.

Panasonic Lumix G85 review

 

Combining the best of Panasonic's tech into one Micro Four Thirds camera

Added in-body image stabilization ; Beefier battery life ; Weatherproof magnesium chassis

Battery grip required for headphone jack ; 16MP sensor lags behind the competition

This is arguably Panasonic's most compelling Micro Four Thirds camera for still photographers and videoographers alike, but it's surrounded by strong competitors.

Panasonic G80 review: The best sub-£1,000 CSC

 

Packed with useful features, the Panasonic G80 is superb for stills and even better for video

Comprehensive features and controls ; Fast, flexible autofocus ; Outstanding video mode

Image quality a little behind the front runners

The Fujifilm X-T20 may be the camera to steal the show – we’ll be reviewing it as soon as we can. For now, though, the Panasonic G80 is the best sub-£1,000 CSC kit on the market.
