Panasonic Lumix GX8 intros new 20MP micro four thirds sensor
Panasonic has a new flagship camera, the Lumix GX8, which introduces a new 20.3-megapixel sensor and 6-axis image stabilisation.
A replacement for the GX7, the GX8 is Panasonic’s answer to the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mk II – a high-end micro four thirds camera with a somewhat compact design.
It, combined with a new image processor, promises greater detail and better low light performance.
Even more intriguing is Panasonic’s new Dual IS system, which combines body and lens stabilisation into one system to create a 6-axis IS system.

Finally, there’s 4K. The GX8 will shoot 4K video at 30fps, but it also has three 4K Photo modes – effectively 30fps burst modes at 8-megapixels.
The GX8 goes on sale in August for £1,049 body only – read our hands-on first impressions for more info.
