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 Stabiliser helps you take crisper, clearer images in difficult or fast-moving environments, while the weather-sealed compact body allows for huge flexibility wherever your trip takes you.
Make Moving Images, Not Blurry Ones
Life doesn't stand still for you to capture it. That's why the LUMIX G85 integrates 5-Axis Dual I.S.2 (Image Stabiliser)*, combining body and lens stabilisation to gain more powerful handshake correction and compensating your shots up to 5 F-Stops**. The 5-axis stabilisation works in both wide and telephoto photography and motion picture recording including 4K Video.
** 5-Axis Dual I.S. 2 works when attaching the lens that are compatible with it. Firmware update of the lens is also required. ** Based on the CIPA standard [Yaw/Pitch direction: focusing distance f=50-140mm (35mm film camera equivalent f=100-280mm), when H-FS14140 is used.]
Change the Lens, Expand Your Creativity
The LUMIX G85’s high-precision gyrosensor and new algorithm increase 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 minimised. 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.
Never Miss the Perfect Shot
The 4K PHOTO feature on the LUMIX G85 allows you to capture the perfect moment by selecting a frame from a video sequence (shot at 30fps) in camera, and saving it as an individual high-res image. Simply shoot, select and save, to make those fleeting moments unmissable in every sense.
Shoot Now, Focus Later
Enjoy the creative freedom of being able to decide what you want in focus. Post Focus gives you the power to review the image and touch the area you'd like to be pin sharp, even after you've taken it. And what's more, with the new Focus Stacking feature, you can easily select several focus points in the same image. It's simple, stunning and all inside the LUMIX G85.
Ultra High Speed Focusing
Capture even the fastest moving action thanks to DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology. It instantly calculates the distance to the subject by evaluating two images with different sharpness levels, and achieves ultrahigh-speed AF and 6-fps burst shooting with AFC. 9-fps burst shooting with AFS is also available.
The compatibility of the UHS-II SDXC/SDHC Memory Card and increased buffer memory elevate the maximum number of recordable images in consecutive shooting up to 300 (JPEG) / 45 (RAW) or more.
What You See is What You Shoot
The LUMIX G85's Live View Finder with 0,74x (35mm equiv.) magnification ratio gives you the freedom to frame your shot and capture everything you see. Plus, the 2360K-dot high resolution and approximately 100% colour reproduction gives you high visibility under any circumstances.
Even with a Single Hand
The ergonomically designed thick grip provides stable shooting even with a single hand. The carefully designed concave shape guides each finger into place, and the index finger is naturally positioned on the shutter button even when a large-diameter lens is attached.
Power Save LVF Shooting
A long battery life of approximately 800-900* images per battery charge is achieved. To save power, the eye sensor detects that the eye has moved away, and the camera automatically enters Sleep mode. You can quickly return to shooting mode with a half press of the shutter button.
* When the time to enter Sleep mode is set to 3 sec.
Battery Grip DMW-BGG1 (Sold Separately)
By using two batteries - one in the camera and the other in the grip - the DMW-BGG1 doubles the battery life for extended shooting. It also makes gripping more comfortable even in vertical angle shooting. Exclusively designed for the LUMIX G85, the DMW-BGG1 perfectly matches the camera, boasting splash/dust-proof rugged design.
*A battery pack is included in the DMW-BGG1.
The G85's 16-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor with no low pass filter helps you capture sharper images with more detail, wherever your journeys take you.
Your Adventures Have Never Looked Better
With the highest quality of 4K Video, LUMIX G85 lets you record every twist and turn of your journey in up to 4x the resolution of Full HD. More detail, in more clarity, means more memories to look back on, in perfect quality.
Venus Engine – Impressive Colour Reproduction
Shoot high-quality, true-to-life images with excellent resolution, high contrast, and impressive colour reproduction. Removing the Low Pass Filter, the limiting resolution is improved by approximately 10%* while detecting high-frequency components to suppress the generation of moiré by the Venus Engine, which is designed for the LUMIX G85. Combining the Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine renders clear images with minimum noise even in low-light situations and a maximum sensitivity of ISO25600.

New Photo Style Option – L. Monochrome
L. Monochrome is a new option added to the Photo Style for more creative photography. It produces impressive monochrome pictures with deep blacks and rich gradation like that of a B/W film.
Focus Bracket / Aperture Bracket
Focus Bracket and Aperture Bracket are newly added to the conventional Exposure Bracket and WB Bracket. Focus Bracket shoots a maximum of 999 images with different focus points, and Aperture Bracket lets you take multiple shots with different depths of field. Select the mode to match the situation or conditions, then choose the best photo after shooting.
Adjust the Focus Area after Shooting
The Focus Stacking function enables you to adjust the focus area after shooting by combining multiple images. You can get an image with exactly the kind of defocus you want or pan-focus the image by simply selecting the focus area after shooting. This is beneficial when shooting macro shots of insects, small accessories and so on.
