The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G85 is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with a 16MP Four-Thirds Live MOS image sensor and it accepts interchangeable lenses on a Micro Four Thirds (MFT) mount. As mirrorless cameras are usually, it is lighter and more compact than its DSLR competitors while delivering DSLR-level image quality and performance.

The Panasonic G85 features 5-axis Dual Image Stabilization (IS). Non-image stabilized lenses, including lenses from other manufacturers and quality vintage lenses, can take advantage of the in-body sensor-shift IS. Mount a compatible LUMIX lens with optical IS and the G85 can also take advantage of that extra stabilization.

The G85 shoots Ultra High Definition (UHD) 4K video. Besides recording high resolution videos, 4K also makes possible some very practical still photo shooting capabilities. For example, with one press of the shutter button, the camera can shoot 30 frames (in one second) and you can then extract one 8MP still photo out of the 30. You can also specify that the camera should shoot continuously at 30 frames per second even when you half-press the shutter button. When you fully press the shutter button, the camera will keep the 30 frames before and after you pressed the shutter, giving you the ability to capture that right moment.

A large and bright electronic viewfinder shows you exactly what you are going to capture, applying the effect of exposure, white balance and filters so you get a pretty good idea of how your picture is going to turn out. A large 3.0-in. (1.04M-dot) LCD is fully-articulated and you can turn it to face forward, shoot low to the ground or above the head. Both the EVF and LCD gain up well in low-light so you can still see even when the light level falls.

Built-in Wi-Fi and the Panasonic Image App allow you to use your smartphone or tablet to remotely control your camera and wirelessly share images on social sites. The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G85 is dust-proof and splash-proof and you can buy it with a 12-60mm kit lens, which is also dust-proof and splash-proof.
