If you’re looking for an entry into the compact system camera market, the GX80 is an ideal choice. It comes packed with many of Panasonic’s best features, but in a small body – making it ideal for travelling or always having with you.
Despite its small size, Panasonic has managed to equip this model with not only a bright and clear electronic viewfinder, but a tilting touch-sensitive screen too. It was the first Panasonic camera to use a sensor that doesn’t have an anti-aliasing filter, which basically means you can get some highly detailed images from this miniature marvel.
It has 4K Video and Photo modes, just like all other new Panasonic models. This means you’ll be able to extract stills from 4K video, which is great for capturing that definitive moment during high-speed action – even if that’s just your dog tearing around the park. If you want an even simpler camera, check out the GX800
