If you are someone who is looking for something sleek, slim and small but however, not ready to compromise even a little over performance that gives the best possible output results, then for those of you the Panasonic Lumix GX85W is the best digital camera option for you.

The devices comes with many aliases and is known by different names in different parts of the world, like GX80 in North America while GX7 in Japan. And as for the name GX85W, then that is a name it is commonly known in almost all other places throughout.

Anyways, coming back to business in the following “Panasonic LUMIX GX85WK Digital Camera Product Review”, we will look at as well as discuss all the features and functions of this device as well as look into the factors to “why” and “why not” should one consider the Lumix GX85WK to be a part of their gadget collection in the first place.

Build and Design

Usually, whenever we look at something, the very first thing that catches our attention may very well be the build and design of an object, product or device and I believe many will agree with me on that.

Very similarly even in case of the Panasonic Lumix GX85WK camera looks and design are something which you will surely notice and admire about it. Coming with a sleek and classy slim design, this digital camera is all about class and appeal.

The control buttons are placed well and spaced for easy navigation as well as controlling. Then, if we need to talk about the feel and grip over the camera than it is just ideal for any kind of handling as well as movement due to its light weight and sturdy material finish overall.

Moreover, since the rear display of the Lumix GX85WK offers a good up-tilt of up to 80-degress and down-tilt of 45-degrees, taking some of the best shots in difficult positions just feels more easy and fun.


Second down the line after Build and Design, we have performance. And if we need to talk about the kind of performance this device has to offer, then I would say that it is just close to flawless.

Coming with a good 1040K dots LCD resolution, having the image right in front of you at the best quality is surely a plus point to capture some of the most variant and sharp pictures.

Also, the built-in O.I.S stabilizer which comes equipped with this camera just gives you more reasons to take some blurred free non shaky photographs as well as videos. And all of that in some of the best quality 4K resolutions both for photos as well as videos.

Again talking in terms of performance and functioning the other little upgrade made on the Lumix GX85 over its predecessor is the Electronic shutter feature which saves your images from any kind of blurred out results which may have been present earlier due to shutter shocks in earlier models.

And last but not the least if we need to talk about the main deal in hand which surely would be the processor performance, then the Venus Engine Image processor of the camera is surely something that is bound to give you some of the best experience as well as end results to brag on about.

The only few drawbacks at the end however would be that there is no mic input available on this camera device as well as the EVF is not that of very high-end quality, both of which can prove not to be the most ideal of conditions for someone who likes to work with videos.
