An evening with the Lumix GX80 / GX85

I loved using the GH2 and was a little disappointed when the GH3 was announced to have a larger body. That’s why I like to think of the GX80 as a spiritual successor to the understated GH2. I think the form factor is ideal for casual street shooting as it doesn’t stand out as a particularly ‘professional’ camera.

The in-body stabilisation in also very impressive! I was under the impression the ‘Dual-IS’ was a bit of a gimmick but it definitely helps.

This is also the first time I’ve completely cut After Effects out of the workflow. Premiere’s performance with multiple adjustments seems to of improved a considerable amount. For this test I did all the grading in Premiere straight on the MP4’s out of the camera. This saves me a lot of time by not using a DNxHR intermediate.
