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.
Buddy Shutter / Face Shutter
Buddy Shutter mode works when two people bring their faces closer together. Face Shutter mode is activated merely by covering your face with a waving hand.
Whether the smartphone is in your hand or pocket, it detects the highest point of your jump and releases the camera shutter at that point.
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.
Superb Picture Quality in a Sophisticated Design
The LUMIX GF8 does not compromise on image quality. A large 16-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor offers high resolution and high sensitivity picture recording with less image noise. Working in conjunction with the Venus Engine, clear, smooth nighttime images are consistently achievable, even up to and including the maximum ISO 25600 setting.
Fast and Precise AF
The LUMIX GF8 boasts a high-speed, high-precision Light Speed AF system including practical full-time AF and tracking AF. Low Light AF makes it possible to focus on subjects more precisely in moonlight with no other light source. It lets you take images of children or pets without shocking them with the flash or AF Assist Lamp.
Silent mode also turns all sound (AF, operation) off while suppressing the emission of the AF assist lamp.
Simply select from 23 pre-optimised presets to use the one that most closely matches your shooting scenario and let the camera automatically select the ideal settings to deliver the best result. Portrait, Child, Scenery modes, which are often used, have respective shortcuts on the dial.
With a variety of filter effects, Creative Control lets you add artistic and original expression to photos, panoramic photos and videos.
