DXO: Panasonic Lumix DC-GX850/GX800 – A mini-GH4


The Panasonic GX800 is a mini GH4 according to DXO’s measurements. It’s impressive that Panasonic has been able to maintain the image quality of the Panasonic GH4’s rather large body in the miniature GX850/800 with there 16-megapixel m43 sensor.

“The Panasonic Lumix GX800 is very small and attractively priced for novice photographers looking for their first interchangeable-lens camera. However, the sensor is showing its age a bit and the image quality is let down by its low-light performance.

This means the GX800 is best suited for use in bright conditions when the sensitivity (ISO) can be kept low. It could be a good travel camera, but it’s not the best all-rounder.

It’s a very compact option with the tiny 12-32mm lens, but for just a little more money, the Canon M100 and Sony A6000 offer better image quality in a wider range of conditions than the GX800.”
