After a few years of building image stabilisation into its G Vario lenses, Panasonic has pulled a quick about-face and joined Olympus in incorporating said stabilisation directly into the sensors in its Micro Four Thirds cameras. The Lumix DMC-GX85 is the first Panasonic camera with integrated 5-axis image stabilisation, and it'll work with lens stabilisation too. Get ready for crazy smooth video footage and blur-free photos.

Panasonic's new mirrorless camera — the Lumix DMC-G7 — shoots 4K video, has smart 'Starlight AF' contrast-based autofocus, and the company's latest 16-megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor. It's just as powerful as a digital SLR at a significantly smaller size, and it's coming to Australia within a month.
The next iteration in Panasonic's excellent stills-and-video mirrorless GH camera line-up, the LUMIX DMC-GH4, now has an Australian price tag. That's great news for anyone thinking of moving over to the new camera, which boasts native 4K video recording capability and a hugely improved imaging sensor. Like the GH3 before it, the new GH4 will likely become the camera of choice for indie film crews and professional cinematographers on a budget.
The rumours were true: the Panasonic Lumix GX7 makes its debut today, boasting a tilting view finder, higher shutter speeds and gorgeous 2.76 million dot resolution. If you're going to tempted by a mirrorless camera this year, this might well be the one, especially with a starting price point of $1249.
After last week's leak, Panasonic has officially announced its new Lumix GF6: a major overhaul to last year's GF5, which makes for an impressive-looking entry-level micro four thirds camera.
