Panasonic Outs Lumix GX85 With Lytro-like Refocusing Abilities


It does wicked 4K as well

Panasonic has just unveiled their newest mirrorless camera, the GX85. The new shooter, which slots at under $1000 brings a lot of compelling features for the price: a body that’s no more than two inches thick, 16-megapixel Live MOS sensor with their new Venus Engine processor, max ISO of up to 25.6K, WiFi and 8FPS continuous shooting.

Panasonic’s also gone ahead and removed the low-pass filter that was present in their previous offerings which should result in sharper photos all-around. The new camera also has a five-asix in-body stabilization feature for better shots in low shutter speeds, as well as 4K shooting at either 30 or 24 FPS. Panasonic also includes the nifty Post Focus feature that allows you to select focal points after you’ve shot the photo, through the camera’s 3-inch, tilting touchscreen.

At an MSRP of $800 before taxes and duties with a 24-64mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens, the GX85 is a pretty tempting mirrorless camera, especially for people who want to shoot 4K on a budget.
