Overview

Field shooting camera for active photographers

With a weatherproof body, 5-axis Dual I.S.2, impressive image and video quality plus 4K technology, the LUMIX G85 is ready for adventure!

The One for Adventure

When life's adventures take you places, you need a camera that can keep up. Perfect for outdoor shooting, the Dual Image Stabilizer 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 Stabilizer), combining body and lens stabilization to gain more powerful handshake correction and compensating your shots up to 5 F-Stops. The 5-Axis stabilization works in both wide and telephoto photography and motion picture recording including 4K video.

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.

Sealed body and lens design for any adventure

Rugged enough to withstand even the most challenging environments, the LUMIX G85 boasts a splash/dustproof body and kit lens. With the latest features condensed into a compact and mobile design, it gives you the flexibility and freedom to never stop exploring.

True-to-life detail

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.
