The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 Interchangeable Lens System Digital Camera with a Micro Four Thirds Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 lens makes taking photos fun and simple. The lens incorporates Panasonic's Mega O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) to suppress the blur caused by a shaky hand and make it easier to shoot clear photographs even in low-light situations.
The G10 features full-time Live View which works with both the LCD and the Live View Finder. This means that you see before you shoot how adjusting the exposure compensation, white balance, aperture and even the shutter speed will affect the image.
When you activate the iA (Intelligent Auto) mode, the G10 automatically selects one of six other modes to optimize exposure and focus for the particular subject you are shooting. For example if you are shooting a sporting event or your fast-moving toddler, iA will engage AF Tracking which tracks your subject and locks the focus until the shutter release is pressed.
If you are taking photos of your friends, you can engage the Face Recognition mode in which the G10 will recognize up to 3 faces and optimize focus and exposure. This mode goes one step further and allows you to register subjects in the camera with full-face portraits so when you compose your photo the names of the registered people show up under their faces on the LDC.
The G10 allows you to enjoy HD movie recording in Motion JPEG at 1280 x 720p at 30 fps and with ISO sensitivity up to 6400 you can capture clear images in low light conditions.
The Lumix G10 has appeal to advanced photographers as well as novices who want the advanced technology interchangeable lenses and user-friendy features without the complexity of a Digital SLR camera.

The lenses are very expensive. But the battery has the longest charge I ever test in a digicamera in 5 years.
Fantastic quality results equal to G2 in every way. You can print A4 with even cropped images. Well done Panasonic
The G-10 is an incredible deal packed with great features. The OIS and AF are lightning fast and the controls are very intuitive. The camera is surprising compact and light yet very solid feeling. It's a great backup and second camera to go along with my GH1.
This camera is the best I ever had
