Fast Continuous Shooting: 12.0fps
In the world of sports photography, faster is always better. Environmental Sealings
Most outdoor sports games are held in all-weather, so your camera has to be ready for difficult conditions such as rain and snow. Exposure to dust and water splashes are also very common in sports. Fast Max shutter speed: 1/8000s
Panasonic GX8's 1/8000s shutter speed is fast enough to freeze any almost all sports action and is also helpful when you use a fast lens at largest aperture under bright sunlight. 49 Focus Points
In sports photography , you keep continuous autofocus (AFC) mode on for tracking the subject and more focus means better tracking. Wireless Connection
It may not be used by everyone but pro sports photographers use Wi-fi to transfer files simultaneously without having to wait to change the memory card. Electronic Built-in Viewfinder
During a sports shoot, using a viewfinder allows the photographer to stabilize the camera and reduce the camera shake since it is closer to the body. Besides, it comes handy where LCD screens are very hard to read under bright sunlight. Image Stabilization
Image stabilization reduces the effects of camera shake at long focal lengths thus ensuring sharper photos during sports photography.
although not as good as a DSLR body, Panasonic GX8 is good enough for most conditions.
