Panasonic GX80 vs. Panasonic GX8

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8

Maybe, everyone is searching the information about the upcoming Panasonic camera called GX80 over the web excitingly, which is said to be the smaller version of Panasonic GX8. Now a lot of rumors that are coming in waves about this GX80 have a few expected specifications including 16 mp sensor, new 5-axis camera stabilization and the one that influenced us much more is its Low pass filter, which everyone is claiming to be the best of all Panasonic cameras available around here.

When it’s decided the camera (GX80) will have some magnificent specification so see nothing wrong in comparing this little camera (Taking rumored specification) with Panasonic GX8. So that we can atleast reach to the point how this camera is a hot contender of Panasonic GX8.

The GX80 camera is rumored to have 16MP sensor if we even compare its image quality with Panasonic GX8, which has 20.3-megapixel, and the four third sensor then probably we would get wrong if we expected the same standard of image quality.

Moreover, this upcoming GX80 has No low-pass filter that claimed 10% improvement in resolution means the photographers can get the high description of the images (Rich details), Which is expected to be the best of any Panasonic cameras.

GX8 does also have Venus engine image processor but GX80 may have advanced image processor of same Venus Engine that can increase the speed of processing performance.

We believe 5-axis camera stabilization of GX80 is much effective to rectify the camera shake problem but Panasonic uses a bit more innovative Image stabilization that is dual IS to gain the highly powerful camera shake correction. With the help of this dual IS (Body I.S. and Lens I.S), which work at the same time, approx any type of vibration can be effectively suppressed.

But AF system of GX80 is looking similar to Panasonic GX8, with same DFD technology and just like GX8 you can also record stunning and high-resolution QFHD 4K video in 3840×2160 at 30p (60Hz) or 24p in MP4 unlimited.

Ultimately, these are all just a little comparison that is done with taking the rumored specifications of Panasonic GX80 and the current GX8.
