When I saw this video pop up on my feed, I instantly recognised the camera – despite its logos being covered up. It’s the Panasonic G85. Or the Panasonic G81 in Germany. Or the Panasonic G80 for pretty much everybody else. And when I read the title of the video, I immediately concurred. You see, I bought three of these last year and in my opinion, they’re fantastic little cameras.
The video above comes from Nigel Barros, who’s transitioned through a bunch of different kit and produces some pretty outstanding work with it. The G85 was an attempt for him to bring his camera kit back down to the bare minimum to “do more with less”. Initially, he picked an old GH4 a few months ago, but after his community suggested the G85, he just had to check it out.
