This Mornning Panasonic Announced a Pair of Powerful Point-and-Shoots, the DMC-LX10 and DMC-FZ2500, That Feature a 20.1MP 1" MOS Sensor and Advanced 4K Video Capabilities; Also, an SLR-Styled DMC-G85 Micro Four Thirds Mirrorless Camera Is Available With a 16MP Sensor and 5-Axis In-Body Image Stabilization

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 19, 2016) -

B&H would like to share Panasonic's announcement of their latest mirrorless release, the DMC-G85, which brings a familiar set of features to a new form factor. This versatile Micro Four Thirds mirrorless model utilizes the 16MP Live MOS sensor to provide a sensitivity range up to ISO 25600, 6 fps shooting with continuous autofocus, and UHD 4K recording at 30p. This 4K ability enables the use of 4K Photo Modes, too, for shooting 8MP stills at 30 fps in three ways. Five-axis sensor-shift image stabilization limits camera shake for sharper results, and supports Dual I.S. when used in conjunction with select lenses which also feature IS, for more effective overall stabilization. The ergonomic design of the body incorporates a 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder and a free-angle 3.0" 1.04m-dot LCD touchscreen, and built-in Wi-Fi permits remote camera control and wireless image sharing with a mobile device. Adding to the potential of the G85 is an optional DMW-BGG1 Battery Grip, which holds two DMW-BLC12 battery packs for extended shooting time, and offers a second shutter-release button, AF/AE lock button, exposure-compensation button, and dual-control dials for more ergonomic vertical shooting.
