PanasonicPanasonic Lumix DC-GX850 review : Early 2017, Panasonic released its newest and cheapest system camera. The Panasonic Lumix DC-GX850 (GX800 in Europe, GF9 in Japan) is a camera with interchangeable lens for novice photographers. Despite the friendly price, the GX850 features many photo and video features from the more expensive Panasonic models, including 4K video, 4K photo, Post Focus, Focus Stacking and a 4K-selfie mode. In addition, the Lumix GX850 features a 16 megapixel Live Mos sensor without Low-pass filter, a contrast autofocus system with 49 focus points, a 3-inch tilting touchscreen display and WiFi functionality. We have received a Panasonic Lumix DC GX850 review copy, in combination with the Lumix G 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6 kitlens. In this review you will read more about our experiences with the GX850, followed by some test photos and sample videos.
Panasonic system camera review

Panasonic system camera review
Panasonic offers a wide range of system camera models. The Lumix GH-series are the most professional cameras, followed by the G series. The GX lineup consists of models with a very compact design, these easy-to-use cameras don't have a SLR look like the other two series, but a so-called rangefinder design with a flat top.

Panasonic Lumix GX850 vs GX85
Panasonic currently has three GX camera models, the GX8 is the most advanced camera, followed by the GX85. The Panasonic Lumix GX850 is the most compact and easy-to-use system camera of the Japanese company.

The main differences between the GX850 and its larger brother, GX85, are the lack of an electronic viewfinder and a 5-axis image stabilization. Also, the GX850 is slower in continuous shooting (5.8fps vs. 8fps) and the camera features a slightly smaller battery capacity. On the other hand, the Panasonic GX850 is lighter and more compact and offers the added value of the upwards tiltable display with 4K selfie mode.

The Panasonic DC-GX850 is available for $548 with the Lumix G 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6, this kit lens also features an optical image stabilizer. When you purchase the DC-GX85 with the same kit lens, it will cost $150 more.

Panasonic Lumix GX850 image quality
The Panasonic Lumix GX850 is a great camera for shooting, the camera responds very quickly and delivers beautiful, detailed photos. Up to ISO 3200, no noise is visible.

The 16 megapixel sensor without low pass filter and the Venus Engine image processor with a maximum ISO range of 25,600 are a very good combination. The camera produces beautiful warm colors and even when lighting conditions are not optimal, the GX850 produces high quality images.

Autofocus System & MEGA O.I.S.
The 49-point contrast AF system lets you focus accurately and is usually well capable of tracking the subject.

Furthermore, the optical image stabilizer of the kit lens works properly, you can set the menu to adjust only horizontal or horizontal + vertical movements. In addition, you can turn the stabilization completely off.

Panasonic GX850 review verdict
The GX850 is Panasonic's cheapest system camera. Nevertheless, the Lumix DC-GX850 feels everything but inexpensive, the camera has a beautiful compact and lightweight housing. The 3" touchscreen display that folds up to 4K selfie screen is a pleasure to work with.

It is an ideal camera for vloggers and people who are currently shooting with their smartphone. The GX850 produces beautiful pictures and the camera is packed with photo features, allowing you to discover new features time after time. Personally, I think 4K photo is a real recommendation.

The GX850 is the cheapest 4K system camera available on the market today. The video clips look great and there is also a Snap Movie mode available, to record short videos and a Time Lapse feature to record accelerated videos.

In addition, the Panasonic Lumix GX850 features built-in WiFi functionality to easily transfer recorded images to a smart device such as your smartphone or tablet.

With a retail price of $548 for the GX850 with Lumix G 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6 kitlens you buy a very versatile camera. An ideal camera for the demanding beginner photographer.
