Panasonic is well known as a video camera brand, but is stepping up its mirrorless photography game as well. Mirrorless cameras are different from DSLR cameras because they don’t have a system of internal mirrors. DSLRs use these inner mirrors to channel light to the optical viewfinder and the phase detection autofocus system. Mirrorless cameras use the image sensor for triple duty. It’s the autofocus system, viewfinder, and image creator all-in-one. Mirrorless cameras can weigh half as much as an equivalent DSLR camera. But their hard working sensors tend to burn through battery life much faster than DSLRs. Panasonic’s mirrorless camera selection caters to photographers that also like to dabble in videography. And the Panasonic LUMIX GX85 offers plenty to satisfy budget-oriented users while still providing the features one expects in higher end cameras. Let’s have a look at this highly capable pocket-sized marvel.

Highly coveted by many photographers since its release, The LX100 is a point-and-shoot camera with a fixed 24-75mm f/1.7-2.8 Leica lens. With a weight of just over 14 ounces, a relatively compact form factor, and classic rangefinder-style controls, you have one of the best bridges between a phone camera and an interchangeable lens mirrorless or DSLR. The fast, very sharp Leica lens is paired well with the 12.8 Megapixel sensor. It makes for a fun and precise shooting experience for most travel, street, and general photography. If you’re going out for the evening with friends, this is the camera to bring.
