strengthened housing and improved viewfinders


The first is the beautiful Lumix G85, the successor to the GX85 released this spring. Their parameters are almost the same (Micro 4: 3, 16 Megapixels, 5-Axis image stabilization, 4K RESOLUTION), the main DIFFERENCE is in the Body. IF GX85 was quite bulky, THEN G85 Looks “Tightened” and COMPACT. In addition, it is wet and dust-resistant, which will please tourists and action photographers.

But there are also a couple of new functions. For example, a 2.36-million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder, as well as a 3-inch touch screen LCD on the back panel that can be rotated in any direction. The cost of such a miracle without a lens will be $ 899, and in a set with a 12-60mm lens $ 999.

Another representative of the updated series was the Lumix LX10, which the company jokingly called “LX7 on steroids.” The same five-axis image stabilization and a 20-megapixel sensor with a diagonal of 1 inch (the same as the ZS100 soap dish) are placed in the all-metal body. This one, by the way, is twice the size of the one used in the LX7. With it, you can shoot 4K video at 30 frames per second and 1080p video at 120 frames per second. In addition, there is a touch 3-inch LCD screen with a million dots, with a possible tilt angle of up to 180 degrees. The kit includes the advertised 24-72mm lens with variable aperture f1.4-f2.8. And such joy will cost $ 699 when it goes on sale in November.

And, finally, the highlight of the exhibition is the Lumix FZ2500, designed primarily for video shooting. According to Panasonic developers, this is a new version of the popular G4, only with a fixed lens. Camera with 20x optical zoom with a range of 24-480mm and variable aperture f2.8-f 4.5. It’s hard to believe, but its lens has as many as 16 lens elements! This promises a smooth zoom comparable to what you’ll find in professional camcorders.

The FZ2500 has a 20MP 1″ sensor and is capable of shooting 4K video at 12 to 30 frames per second. It also has the same viewfinder as the G85 and a three-inch movable screen. It will be available for purchase in December at $1,199.
