GENERAL

The DC GX800 was introduced by Panasonic in January 2017. It belongs to the Mirrorless Cameras category.

Panasonic is well-known and shouldn't require further introduction, please see our manufacturer's page for more digital cameras by Panasonic.

SENSOR

The DC GX800 features a CMOS sensor in Four Thirds size that has an area of approximately 17 x 13 mm² (0.68" x 0.51").

This infographic compares the DC GX800's sensor to other common formats:

Infographic: DC GX800 comparing sensor sizes

(The 1-Euro coin used for scale has a diameter of 23.25mm, slightly smaller than a US quarter.)

The DC GX800's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 16 megapixel. The resolution is somewhat below average but will be sufficient for most purposes. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed to A3 size.

The Panasonic supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Panasonic's RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.

The DC GX800 features a mechanism for automatic sensor cleaning.

LENS

All compatible Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lenses can be mounted to the DC GX800.

Currently, approximately more than 80 Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lenses are available, not counting lenses by third-party manufacturers. Further lenses can be connected via suitable adapters.

VIEWFINDER

The DC GX800 does not come with a built-in viewfinder. The camera's display is used to compose the photo. That can be cumbersome in broad daylight.

SHUTTER

The DC GX800's shutter speeds range from 1/16000s to 60s.

Max. shutter speed1/16000s
Min. shutter speed60s
SENSITIVITY

The DC GX800's sensitivity goes from 100 ISO und 25600 ISO, a very useful and practical range.

Max. sensitivity25600 ISO
METERING

The DC GX800 supports all common metering modes.

The Panasonic will also allow spot metering, a must for challenging motives.

AUTO FOCUS

The DC GX800's auto focus processor uses 49 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. when panning the camera).

Manual focus is also possible with the Panasonic, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.

FLASH

The DC GX800 features a built-in flash with a range of up to 6m (19 ft.). That range will work for most situations.

A hotshoe is missing from the Panasonic.

DISPLAY
DC GX800 display and touch screen

The DC GX800 features a monitor with a diagonal of 75.00mm (3.0 in.) and a resolution of c. 1.04 megapixel. That's about average.

The camera's display is articulated, a plus for selfies and other challenging situations.

The DC GX800's monitor can work as a touch screen, just like a smartphone. That can be very useful, for example to pick AF points, but keep in mind that touch screens usually don't work when wearing gloves.

VIDEO

When recording videos with the DC GX800, the highest supported resolution is 3840 x 2160 pixel, in other words 4K Video.

A connector for an external microphone is missing from the Panasonic. A built-in mike will usually record everything in front and to the sides of the camera which is not always what the film maker wants. Internal microphones also tend to record camera sounds like focus beeps.

STORAGE

What memory cards can be used with the Panasonic DC GX800?

The DC GX800 will only accept Micro SD cards. The Panasonic does not support SD cards.

With an average image size of 5 megabytes (JPEG, fine) a 32 GByte memory card would hold up to 6400 images.

MISC. FUNCTIONS

Let's have a look at some other features of the Panasonic DC GX800:

The DC GX800 doesn't have a built-in GPS receiver. If you want to add coordinates to your photos, you'll have to do so in 3rd party software like Adobe Lightroom. However, with Wifi built-in, location data can also be added via a connected smartphone.

The DC GX800 doesn't have a built-in stabilizer. That would have been a plus when using legacy zooms or tele lenses without stabilizer.

A nice addition is the Panasonic's electronic level. The camera displays an indicator on the monitor that makes it super-easy to level the camera horizontally, very useful when doing architectural photography.

The camera has a built-in function to facilitate creating panoramas: While panning the Panasonic over the scene, the camera takes a sequence of images which are then automatically assembled to form a panorama.

The camera can create HDRs automatically. That saves you from manually creating sequences of images with variying exposure values.

The DC GX800 is not environmentally sealed against dust and moisture; keep that in mind in the rain and on the beach.

BATTERY

The Panasonic DC GX800 works with a BLH7E battery. The battery lifetime is an average 210 shots. That's on the lower side of things for a full day, consider a spare battery for the DC GX800.

The battery can be charged over USB while in camera. Very useful, especially on vacation when most people bring a USB charger for their smartphone anyway.

DIMENSIONS

The Panasonic DC GX800's dimensions are 106.5 x 64.5 x 33mm³. (4.2" x 2.5" x 1.3"). That's the body only, without lens. The camera's weight is only 270 grams (8.7 oz.). Add to this the weight of the lens.

SIZE COMPARISON

To put the size of the camera in context, here it is next to a typical ID card (c. 86mm x 55mm, about the size of a credit card).

The DC GX800 is not much bigger:

Our rating of the Panasonic DC GX800

Panasonic's GX800 (US: GX850) is a very compact mirrorless ILC with a Micro Four Thirds sensor and 16 megapixel resolution. The camera has a very good feature set: Wifi, 4K video, and built-in functions for panoramas and time lapse recordings. A viewfinder is missing to keep the camera pocketable. The display is articulated and can be flipped a full 180 degrees, ideal for selfies. As it stands, the GX800 (GX850) is one of the most affordable and smallest MFT cameras. The provided resolution allows prints up to size A3. Recommended lens to keep the total size down: Panasonic 20mm F1.7 pancake. Mediocre battery life, a spare battery is recommended.

For an alternative with built-in image tabilizer and viewfinder see the Panasonic GX80 (US: GX85).
