Panasonic GX80 vs. Olympus Pen F


Better to expect the same standard of images from both of these two cameras because each one is using the same sensor sizes, Four Thirds (17.3 x 13 mm) but the resolution is different. Pen F camera employs 20 Mp of resolution but due to their equal sensor size both can produce the same images (maybe the sharpness and clarity will be same).

Low pass filter-   Panasonic eliminates low pass filter from its GX80, so the users can get fine detail every time they shoot and you can get slight sharper images compared to Pen F camera. But users may miss to get this kind of details while shooting with Olympus Pen F camera because the camera uses Optical low pass filter, which will not be able to grab the required details .

AF system-It’s Doubtless that users of both the cameras can achieve the same speed and accuracy in focusing the target subjects because GX80 as well as Pen F uses contrast detect sensor but Olympus Offers more number of 81 AF points to their users. So that they can choose a variety of focus configurations to suit the desired subjects as per the shooting situation with EM10 II but Photographers using GX80 can get only 49 AF points.

To attain high speed focusing as little as 0.07, Panasonic engineers DFD technology etc

Image stabilization-  Any kind of camera shake can effectively be corrected by 5-axis Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) of GX80 combined with O.I.S.(Optical Image Stabilizer, 2-axis) and a B.I.S.(Body Image Stabilizer, 5-axis), the 5-axis Dual I.S. compensates for a larger range of movement. On the other side Pen F has only 5-axis Image stabilization is not effective like Dual IS of GX80.

Continuous shooting speed- Be sure that due to maximum frame rates of 10 fps, your Olympus Pen F camera will be able to capture much more of the action and reduce the chances of the blurry images, result in produce slight sharper images compared to the continuous speed of 8fps of GX80 camera.

Video- GX80 is capable of recording smooth, high-resolution 4K video in 3840 x 2160 at 30p or 24p and with the 4K technology, users can enjoy 4K PHOTO which users can capture at 30 fps by extracting the frame. On the other side, with Pen F camera the users can record only Full 1080 p HD video.

Verdicts- Panasonic GX80 is awesome camera offers you almost everything at achievable price like innovative 5-axis dual IS as well as 4K video recording etc.
