Packing an impressive 5-Axis Dual Image Stabiliser and 4K technologies, the G85 is a splash and dustproof field camera which captures perfect moments with impressive clarity, especially when shooting outdoors.
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 and
kit lens allow for huge flexibility wherever your trip takes you.
Capture Moving Images with Perfect Clarity
Life rarely stands still enough for you to capture it with perfect clarity. That's why the LUMIX G85 integrates a powerful 5-Axis Dual I.S.2 (Image Stabiliser*). The camera body and lens stabilisation have been combined to correct blurring caused by handshakes and compensates your shots up to 5 F-Stops**. The 5-Axis stabilisation works on both wide and telephoto photography and even with 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 equips a high-precision gyro sensor and new algorithm which increases the compensation power of the 5-Axis Body Image Stabiliser. This awesome and powerful new feature corrects handshakes for all interchangeable lenses, including classic lenses which don’t have 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 LUMIX G85 features 4K PHOTO technology which gives you the freedom to choose your favourite shot from a sequence, so you don’t have to guess when the right moment is going to occur. Simply shoot, select your favourite moment, and then save it as a separate high-res image.
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 ultra-high 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, it boasts a 2360K - dot high resolution and
approximately 100% colour reproduction for 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
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.
