Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 Review | Photography Blog

Panasonic has introduced a new compact system camera which sits in between the GX (single digit) and the GF ranges in terms of who it is aimed at. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 (also known as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85) features a 16 million pixel sensor and a Venus Engine was has been tweaked to work specifically in this camera. For the first time in a G series camera, the optical low pass filter has been removed which boosts the sensor’s capability to record fine detail. As with several other Lumix cameras recently released, the GX80 features the ability to record 4K video which also facilitates 4K photo modes. A new 5-Axis Dual I.S. system combines OIS (Optical Image Stabiliser - 2 axis) as well as B.I.S (Body Image Stabiliser - 5 axis) in the main body of the camera. This is designed to negate the effects of hand shake, and Panasonic claims that it is the “best IS in the camera market” - which it says is especially true when shooting with telephoto lenses. A brand new shutter unit has been designed to minimise slight vibrations and shutter sound when pressing the shutter button. This means that you can use the mechanical shutter in situations where you might have only been able to use the electronic shutter before. Other features include a LVF (Live Viewfinder) with 2764k-dot equivalent resolution and a 3.0-inch, approx 1040k-dot resolution touch sensitive monitor which tilts 80 degrees upwards and 45-degrees downwards. Wi-Fi is included, but NFC is not.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 will be available to buy from early May and will be available either body only (£509), with a 12-32mm lens (£599 / $799) or as part of a twin kit which includes a 12-32mm and 35-100mm lens and costs £729.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 has been designed as an alternative for the GX8, being cheaper and slightly lower specced in some respects. However, to look at, it appears very similar to the GX7 - the GX8’s predecessor.

That means it’s got a nicely slim and sleek body, and while it’s not quite pocket sized, it’s not too far off when paired with the small collapsible 12-32mm lens (which will be the default kit lens). On the front of the camera is a grip to help your finger rest nicely and give good purchase. Where your thumb sits on the rear of the camera is also textured, preventing your thumb from slipping onto the screen when holding the camera.

On the top of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 is a mode dial which allows you to quickly choose a shooting mode, such as aperture priority, fully automatic, scene mode and so on. In a difference from the GX8 however, there’s no exposure compensation dial for quickly making such a change.

Front of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80

Panasonic views this camera as being for photographers who are not quite as advanced as GX8 users, so it’s not too much of a surprise to see a dial like this missing. Around the shutter release is a dial which will allow you to alter aperture or shutter speed (depending on the shooting mode you’re in). There’s a secondary small dial on the back of the camera which can also be used for a similar function - you can set up how these dials work in the main menu.

In another difference from the GX8, while the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 has an electronic viewfinder, it’s not quite as large as the GX8’s, and it also doesn’t tilt. While this makes it not quite as pleasant to use, it does help save on space (and cost) and becomes something you’ll perhaps use only for shots in bright sunlight, rather than every shot. That said, the view inside it is bright and clear, if a little more cramped than perhaps we’d generally like.

Similarly, the back screen only tilts, rather than being fully articulating. That makes the GX8 perhaps a little more suited to video shooting (and selfies), but a tilting screen is still useful for a number of different awkward angles. As we’ve come to expect from Panasonic G series cameras, it is touch sensitive and very responsive. You can use the touchscreen while using the viewfinder to set the autofocus point, which is an innovation other manufacturers are now starting to copy because it is so useful.

Rear of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80

The buttons occupying the rear of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 will be familiar to anybody who has used a Panasonic G series camera before, and make for a very sensible way of working. As always, there are a number of function buttons (four in this case) that can be customised to work in different ways depending on your preference but which have a default function already. For instance, one near the viewfinder controls the viewfinder function, while another near the navigational pad switches on Post Focus shooting. If you decide you’d prefer something else to be more easily accessible, you simply change their function in the main menu.

A quick menu can be accessed by pressing the Fn2 button when in shooting mode. This will bring up most of the key settings that you’re likely want to change shot to shot, such as white balance, ISO, Picture Style and so on. You can either use the touchscreen to navigate around this menu, or the directional keys on the back of the camera.

There’s also another more extensive menu if you need to make other changes, such as to the date and time, or change the function of buttons. This is a sensibly arranged menu, and doesn’t take much getting used to, especially if you’ve used any Panasonic cameras before.

Tilting LCD Screen

Like other Panasonic G series cameras, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 has 4K Photo modes. This utilises the ability to capture 4K video for a number of different functions. One of these is Post Focus, which allows you to take a series of photos all with a different focus point, and then choose your preferred one after you’ve captured the shot. This can be more useful for some subjects than others, for example with Macro it’s a great idea.

There’s also the three standard 4K photo modes. There’s 4K Burst, which will keep shooting at 30fps so long as you have the shutter release held down. There’s 4K Burst (Start/Stop), which will start recording with a single press of the shutter release, and stop when you press it again and 4K Pre-Burst, which will record just two seconds of footage, one second before you fully press the shutter button, and one second after to give you 60 frames to shoot from. Which mode you use will be dependent on the shooting situation - after you’ve recorded, you can simply play back the frames on the camera and choose the one you want to extract. It will be extracted at 8 million pixels, rather than the full 16 the sensor offers, but that’s still enough to print at A3 size.

Dedicated function buttons are available for these 4K modes, but again, you can switch these to another function if you’re not using the 4K modes all that often.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 In-hand

Hidden away a little more, there’s also Light Composition, which gives you the opportunity to combine several frames into one final image, giving priority to specific pixels based on their brightness. So, you can use it for fireworks or night sky images to dramatic effect.

As we’ve come to find with Panasonic cameras, focusing is very quick and accurate, locking onto a subject almost instantly when shooting in good light. When you’re using the viewfinder you can use TouchPad AF to move the autofocus point by tapping on the screen to select the point you want. While occasionally you may touch it accidentally with your noise and move the point when you don’t want to, it’s a very useful feature.

In lower light, the lens will sometimes hunt for a little longer than in bright light to acquire focus, but it’s rare for focus to fail - or for a false confirmation of focus to be presented.

Shot to shot times are very quick, and flicking through images in preview mode is also very speedy. Start-up time is practically non-existent, while you may experience a little slowness when the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 is processing 4K photos, but considering the large amount of work the camera is doing, it’s not too long a wait at all.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80: Сильный вызов всем конкурентам

Вывод камеры Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 на рынок — удачный и смелый шаг производителя: редкий случай, чтобы так много производительности можно было получить за такие небольшие деньги.

Примерно за 50 000 рублей вы получите одну из лучших беззеркальных системных камер стандарта Микро 4:3. Конечно, из-за невысокой цены пришлось пожертвовать некоторыми профессиональными характеристиками.

Отличная комплектация

Кажется немного удивительным, какую классную камеру можно получить за такую цену. Возьмем, к примеру, комплектацию Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80: Ultra HD-видео, электронный видоискатель, сенсорный экран и Wi-Fi, казалось бы, что желать больше нечего. Из-за невысокой цены можно предположить, что производитель ограничится минимумом, но как мы видим, всё наоборот.

Видеорежим с четырехкратным разрешением Full-HD радует глаз четким и детализированным изображением. В комплектацию также входят фото-режимы 4K, которые, выражаясь фото-терминами, представляет собой серийную съёмку со скоростью 30 кадров в секунду с разрешением 8 мегапикселей.

Кроме того, разработчики Panasonic оснастили камеру Lumix GX80 функцией постфокусировки. В этом режиме фотоаппарат пишет видео длинной около секунды с разными фокусными плоскостями, и уже после съёмки вы сами сможете выбрать нужную точку фокуса и извлечь фотографию в формате JPEG. Своего рода напоминание о технологии светового поля Lytro.

Средний класс, но с профессиональными амбициями.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80: Поворотный — да, но дисплей не совсем подходит для создания селфи

Для удобства работы у камеры Lumix GX80 есть сенсорный экран. 3-дюймовый дисплей с отличным разрешением около миллиона субпикселей имеет суммарный угол поворота 135 градусов, что не совсем подходит для создания селфи.

Для фотосъёмки очень удобен электронный видоискатель с внушительной частотой кадров. Маленький, защищённый от солнечных лучей дисплей с 0,7-кратным увеличением и разрешением около 2,8 миллиона субпикселей почти достигает уровня оптических видоискателей полнокадровых камер.

Так же удивляет то, что у Lumix GX80 есть два колёсика для изменения значения диафрагмы и выдержки. Для камеры данной ценовой категории их наличие далеко не само собой разумеющийся факт, но они делают более удобной съёмку в режимах P S A M.

Любители художественных эффектов смогут оторваться, работая с 57 креативными режимами, например: сепия или эффект диорамы. Кто, однако, еще не уверен, что сможет правильно настроить камеру сам, тот, скорее всего, найдёт подходящий режим среди 25 сюжетных программ.

Отличное качество изображения

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80: Сверху у камеры есть горячий башмак

Но даже самые лучшие креативные и сюжетные режимы выглядят малоубедительными, когда качество изображения им не соответствуют. Но и тут у камеры Lumix GX80 от Panasonic есть сильные козыри. 1784 пар линий на высоту кадра гарантируют высокое разрешение 16 мегапикселей даже при минимальной светочувствительности.

Вплоть до ISO 3200 (включительно) детализация и шумы удивительным образом остаются на хорошем уровне. Удивило это нас потому, что у сенсоров микро 4:3 есть склонность к образованию «шумных» пикселей. Но даже при ISO 6400 вы получите вполне приемлемое качество изображения (хоть и с небольшими недостатками).

Две последних ступени ISO 12800 и 25600 оказались не очень полезными на практике. Большинство фотографов всё равно будут редко их использовать. Lumix GX80 от Panasonic имеет встроенный 5-осевой стабилизатор изображения, который компенсирует небольшое дрожание камеры. Это даёт возможность использовать низкий уровень светочувствительности и длительную выдержку при фотографировании с рук.

Если вы будете использовать объектив со стабилизатором OIS, то эта функция усиливается. Panasonic называет такую технологию «Dual IS» и обещает стабилизацию до 3,5 стопов экспозиции.

Долгоиграющая только в плане серийной съемки

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80: Показатели вспышки довольно скромны: ведущее число 4,2 при уровне ISO 100

В плане скорости Lumix GX80 от Panasonic выглядит убедительно по всем параметрам. Мало того, что 49 точек фокусировки всегда делают камеру готовой к моментальным снимкам. Но и скорость серийной съемки очень высока, и составляет 10,7 кадров в секунду. Удивительно также, что камера держит этот высокий темп в формате JPEG до полного заполнения карты памяти или истощения заряда аккумулятора.

Однако при съемке в профессиональном формате RAW уже после 44 кадров камера начинает заметно подтормаживать. Но для представительницы такого класса это более чем достойный результат. Это же касается и выдержки: при использовании электронного затвора беззеркальная камера способна снимать движущиеся объекты с выдержкой до 1/16000 секунды. Особенно это должно понравиться владельцам светосильных объективов, которые хотят снимать с открытой диафрагмой при ярком солнечном свете.

Это действительно правда, что Lumix DMC-GX80 от Panasonic предлагает исключительно много за небольшие деньги. Однако профессионалам всё-таки может не хватить пары мелочей. Например, хорошо обработанный и весящий всего около 430 грамм пластиковый корпус не защищён от водных брызг. Отсутствуют разъёмы для микрофона и наушников, — профессиональных видеографов это, наверняка, неприятно удивит.

Зато у камеры есть Wi-Fi для беспроводной передачи данных и возможности дистанционного управления со смартфона. NFC для бесконтактной связи наоборот отсутствует. Времени работы аккумулятора на одном заряде хватает максимум для создания 460 снимков и 116 минут видео, что, честно говоря, довольно мало. Поэтому запасной аккумулятор может пригодиться не только во время длительных выездных фото-сетов.

Самое время сменить камеру

Но давайте будем честными, кто, учитывая такую невероятно низкую цену, будет серьезно критиковать эту камеру? Вот-вот. Поэтому, нам кажется, что пришел подходящий момент, сменить свой фотоаппарат на более актуальную модель. В ближайшее время вряд ли появится другая камера с такими же высокими показателями и при этом по цене ниже. Так что никаких отговорок, если покупать, то сейчас!

Panasonic UK Press Release

Panasonic Expands LUMIX G Range with Modern Style LUMIX DMC-GX80

New interchangeable lens camera is designed for photographers who want to capture the art of daily life in stunning quality

Today, Panasonic is proud to announce the latest addition to its range of interchangeable lens cameras – the LUMIX DMC-GX80. Combining modern design and 4K performance, the new camera boasts the same compact style as previous GX models, and is the perfect companion for any urban adventure.

With a range of innovative features, including 4K PHOTO and 5-Axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabiliser), plus a sturdy ergonomic grip, the new DMC-GX80 has been carefully developed to excel when shooting out of hand and on the move.

Outstanding image quality

The LUMIX DMC-GX80 features a 16.0MP Sensor for results with stunning detail and clarity. Performance is further enhanced by a new Venus Engine that reproduces colour with impressive accuracy. The engine adjusts hue, saturation and luminosity separately for vibrant images that jump off the screen and precisely recreate what you envisaged when pressing the shutter button.

Such is the quality of the DMC-GX80’s Sensor and Venus Engine, that Panasonic has been able to remove the low pass filter for the first time in a Lumix G camera. Limiting Resolution is improved by approximately 10% for greater clarity and even more impactful pictures and video.

The combination of the sensor and engine also achieves clear image rendering with minimal noise, even in low-lit conditions and at max. ISO 25600 – ideal when shooting in environments such as dark restaurants and night markets.

The sensor’s high speed signal readout capability and fast signal processing enable the camera to record stunning 4K Video – with the DMC-GX80 you can capture the sights and sounds of a city adventure with four times the resolution of Full-HD. The LUMIX DMC-GX80 records stunningly smooth, high-resolution 4K video in 3840x2160 at 25p (50Hz) or 24p in addition to the Full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 50p (50 Hz) videos.

Thanks to 4K technology, users can also utilise Panasonic’s innovative 4K PHOTO feature to capture fleeting photo opportunities and never miss a moment with 30 fps. Three exclusive modes are available to choose from depending on the situation; 4K Burst, 4K Burst (Start/Stop) and 4K Pre-burst. Each setting enables you to extract a single frame from the 4K video sequence and save it as a 8MP JPEG - sufficient resolution to print in A3 size.

In addition, the LUMIX DMC-GX80 also incorporates all new Light Composition functionality within 4K PHOTO mode. The camera is able to combine several frames into one final image, prioritising specific pixels based on their brightness. This makes it possible to produce dramatic images of low-light, high-contrast environments such as fireworks or shots of the night’s sky.

Freestyle shooting limiting any blur

The LUMIX DMC-GX80 incorporates a number of features that help you take crystal clear, blur-free pictures on the move and without the need for a tripod – ideal for capturing unexpected photos as you explore the city. 

A new 5-Axis Dual I.S. combines O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser - 2 axis) as well as B.I.S. (Body Image Stabiliser – 5 axis) in the main body of the camera, to negate the effect of handshake.

Compatible with both photography, and video recording, 5 Axis Dual I.S. becomes particularly useful when using telephoto lenses such as the new LEICA DG VARIO-ELMAR, 100-400mm, f4.0-6.3 lens, or when using slower shutter speeds in low-light conditions.

The LUMIX DMC-GX80 also features a brand new shutter unit design. This minimises the slight vibrations and shutter sound caused when pressing the shutter button. This vibration reduction enables users to release the mechanical shutter even in the situations where they previously had no choice but to use the electronic shutter.

A camera with street style

The LUMIX GX range is synonymous with compact design that looks great in the hand. The LUMIX DMC-GX80 is available in three classic colours - brown, silver or black - each of which features a stunning dimpled leather-like finish, aluminium dials and a timeless, retro silhouette.

To further enhance control on the move, the DMC-GX80 comes with a thick, solid grip for stable holding even in one hand. The front/rear dual dial system also enables fast and efficient changes to settings - for example, users can adjust white balance with a front dial and set ISO with a rear dial, while also choosing the shutter speed. This is particularly helpful in changing lighting situations when you need to make subtle changes on the move.

The DMC-GX80 integrates a LVF (Live View Finder) with 2764K-dot equivalent high resolution and approximate 100% colour reproduction. The 16:9 Wide Screen LVF boasts approx.1.39x / 0.7x (35mm camera equiv.) magnification, 100% field of view and an Eye Sensor. This sensor triggers Eye Sensor AF and brings your chosen frame into focus by the time you look through the shutter.

A large 3.0-inch, approx.1040K-dot high resolution static-type touch monitor offers a secondary shooting method and also boasts approx. 100% of field of view. This folding screen makes shooting awkward situations much easier. An 80-degree upward tilt is ideal when shooting from street level, while a 45-degree upward tilt is perfect for shooting overhead, such as at crowded music events.

Accurate focus before and after the shot

The DMC-GX80’s Contrast AF System features DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology and excels in both speed and accuracy. Digital signals are sent between the camera and the lens at max. 240 fps, resulting in ultrafast auto focusing of approx. 0.07 sec. With Panasonic’s new interchangeable lens camera, you’ll be ready to capture even the most fleeting moments with breathtaking clarity.

The camera also features Panasonic’s innovative Post Focus function, allowing you to change the focus areas of the image even after shooting. This means you can totally change the perspective of your work – from choosing which face you want to be in focus in a busy street scene to adding more background warmth to a close-up macro shot.  Operation is easy. After shooting in Post Focus mode, you simply touch the screen at the point where you want to set focus when reviewing the image.

Sophisticated editing without the need for a computer

The LUMIX DMC-GX80 is packed with the latest artistic filters and features so you can add a creative touch to your favourite photos and videos directly on the camera. The Creative Control mode features a total of 22 filter options, while the camera also offers a newly integrated L.Monochrome mode, providing monochrome pictures with the rich gradation that can give your photography the style of an authentic black and white movie.

In addition to filters the LUMIX DMC-GX80 also enables innovative 4K Live Cropping for editing video on the camera. For panning, you can simply set the viewing angle to get a smooth panning shot without the need for special equipment like a slider. For zooming, you can set the frame you want to finish with, and the camera will automatically zoom from wide angle to tele. Thanks to the digital operation and lack of physical lens movement, this process is perfectly smooth, giving you professional-looking results every time.

Stay connected

The LUMIX DMC-GX80 integrates Wi-Fi connectivity for a flexible shooting experience and fast and easy image sharing.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 Review - Image Quality

All of the sample images in this review were taken using the 16 megapixel Fine JPEG setting, which gives an average image size of around 7Mb.

Panasonic cameras usually impress us with high image quality, and happily the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 is no different. It’s interesting to see that Panasonic has gone down the route of removing the low pass filter with a new design, and it appears to have a positive effect on image quality.

If you look at our sample images, you’ll see that detail is resolved extremely well, with lots of fine detail visible throughout the camera’s native sensitivity range. The overall impression of detail is fantastic when looking at images at normal printing or web sizes (such as A4 or below), but if you zoom at 100%, there’s some loss of detail towards the higher end of the sensitivity spectrum - that’s not surprising though and will only really have an impact if you want to perform some heavy cropping.

Low light performance is generally good, with the amount of noise reduction applied to JPEG images appearing quite natural. You can use Panasonic’s Silkypix software to work on raw format images (an update for Adobe Camera Raw will be in the making). Here we can see that at higher ISOs (such as ISO 3200) there is a fair amount of chroma noise and speckling visible when you turn off all noise reduction. However, there is also more detail than in the corresponding JPEG files giving you good scope to bring back any detail in fine subjects if you prefer.

Colours directly from the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 are nicely saturated to give a pleasing effect without going too far over the top. Raw files are slightly flatter in terms of vibrance, but again this gives good scope for working on the files in post production.

Exposures are generally accurate thanks to the camera’s all-purpose metering system, while being able to use the electronic shutter to utilise very fast shutter speeds gives you the option to create shallow depth of field shots even in bright sunlight.

Under artificial light, the GX80’s automatic white balance system tends to err ever so slightly on the warm side, but if you find that to be problematic you can switch to a more appropriate white balance setting.

One of the headline new features of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 is improvements to optical image stabilisation. With 5-axis stabilisation in place, you can shoot at slower shutter speeds handheld with confidence. I was able to get sharp shots shooting at speeds as slow as 1/5 of a second handheld, which is great.

4K Photo Modes continue to impress with their versatility. Whether you’re photographing action, sports, wildlife, or just an active child, the applications that this technology has is great - and the fact that it’s so simple to execute makes it even better too.

Noise

There are 9 ISO settings available on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80. Here are some 100% crops which show the noise levels for each ISO setting, with JPEG on the left and RAW on the right:

Flash

The flash settings on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 are Auto, Auto/Red-eye Reduction, Forced Flash On, Slow Sync./Red-eye Reduction and Forced Flash Off. These shots of a white coloured wall were taken at a distance of 1.5m.

And here are some portrait shots. As you can see, neither the Flash On setting or the Red-Eye Reduction option caused any amount of red-eye.

Flash On (100% Crop)

Multiple Exposure

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80's Multiple Exposure mode combines two or three different pictures to create one composite image.

Photo Styles

Panasonic's Photo Styles, similar to Nikon's Picture Styles, Canon's Picture Controls and Olympus' Picture Modes, are preset combinations of different sharpness, contrast, saturation and noise reduction settings. The six available Photo Styles are shown below in the following series, which demonstrates the differences. There is also a Custom option so that you can create your own look.

Filters

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 has an extensive range of creative Filters with 22 different options on offer.
