Along with high-resolution 20Mp (5184 x 3888 pixel) stills, the new sensor can also capture 4K video at 24/25p or full HD movies at 50/25p. Another first for the GX8 is the inclusion of a new Dual I.S (Image Stabilization) system, with mechanisms built into both the camera and the lens to enhance performance. Thanks to its new Dual I.S. system, Panasonic claims up to 3.5 stops of “anti-shake” on the GX8 when using wide-angle focal lengths.
The GX8’s weather-sealed construction offers splash- and dust-proof construction to handle difficult shooting environments, and boasts a wide ISO 100 to 25600 sensitivity range,
