NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwired – September 15, 2016) – B&H is pleased to share Panasonic’s announcement of their latest mirrorless release, the DMC-G85, which brings a familiar set of features to a new form factor. This versatile Micro Four Thirds mirrorless model utilizes the 16MP Live MOS sensor to provide a sensitivity range up to ISO 25600, 6 fps shooting with continuous autofocus, and UHD 4K recording at 30p. This 4K ability enables the use of 4K Photo Modes, too, for shooting 8MP stills at 30 fps in three ways. Five-axis sensor-shift image stabilization limits camera shake for sharper results, and supports Dual I.S. when used in conjunction with select lenses which also feature IS, for more effective overall stabilization. The ergonomic design of the body incorporates a 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder and a free-angle 3.0″ 1.04m-dot LCD touchscreen, and built-in Wi-Fi permits remote camera control and wireless image sharing with a mobile device. Adding to the potential of the G85 is an optional DMW-BGG1 Battery Grip, which holds two DMW-BLC12 battery packs for extended shooting time, and offers a second shutter-release button, AF/AE lock button, exposure-compensation button, and dual-control dials for more ergonomic vertical shooting.

Panasonic DMC-G85 Lumix Mirrorless Camera

The G85 will be available as a body only or in a kit with the Lumix G Vario 12-60mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. lens.

I am abit confused now about the dual stabilzation especially when taking video in (3), (4) and (5) below:

The stabilisation function:

1) when taking still, on tripod: Camera ON, Lens OFF

2) when taking still handheld: Both ON

3) when taking video, handheld: Both ON ?

4) when taking video, on tripod (without moving camera): ?

5) when taking video, on tripod but panning (L to R) or (Up & down) : ?

Thanks

5 - There's a OIS mode specifically for panning. Meaning it will only correct up/down movements, leaving your panning uncorrected, which is what you want. If tilting (up/down), then I would off it totally.

how to shoot long exposure on this camera as there is no bulb mode
From the manual downloaded
(Bulb)
If you set the shutter speed to , the shutter stays open while the shutter button is pressed fully (up to approximately 120 seconds).
The shutter closes if you release the shutter button.
Use this when you want to keep the shutter open for a long time to take pictures of fireworks, a night scene etc.
*It can only be used with Manual Exposure Mode.


Shutter release is required as well using Bulb, and turn on Long Shutter Noise Reduction too.
