About Panasonic

The compact and lightweight (19.68 oz, 558 g) Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2K Interchangeable Lens System Digital Camera with a Micro Four Thirds Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Asph./Mega O.I.S. lens makes taking photos fun and simple. The G2 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.

The movable 3.0" (7.6cm) LCD Touch Screen allows image capture, engagement of special shooting modes and playback with a simple touch. For example, via the LCD you can engage the iA (Intelligent Auto) feature which automatically selects one of six specialized modes to optimize exposure and focus for the particular subject you are shooting. If you are covering a sporting event or you're capturing precious images of your fast-moving toddler for example, iA will engage AF Tracking which follows the subject's trail and continuously keep it in focus until the shutter release is pressed.

When your subjects are groups of people, such as friends and family, iA can enlist the Face Recognition mode in which the G2 will recognize up to 3 faces and optimize focus and exposure. The convenience of face recognition even goes one step further as the G2 allows you to pre-register subjects in the camera with full-face portraits so when you compose your photo the names of the registered people show up on the LCD.

Whether using the touch screen or the dedicated video record button, the G2 shoots HD movies in Motion JPEG or AVCHD Lite formats, allowing up to 180 minutes of continuous recording time while retaining excellent image quality and sound. You can engage the camera's Movie mode for a variety of professional-like movie effects such as blurring images that transition into focus.

With advanced technology and convenient touch screen operation, the Lumix G2 appeals to advanced photographers as well as novices who want excellent image quality, user-friendly features and interchangeable lenses without the complexity and weight of a digital SLR.

Panasonic Features

  • Double Live View: Full-time Live View works with both the LCD and the Live View Finder. This means that, no matter which way you shoot, you see before you shoot how adjusting the exposure compensation, white balance, aperture and even the shutter speed will affect the image
  • The Live View Finder has large, approximately 1.4x (0.7x in 35mm format), magnification and an approximate 100% field of view. This combines with 1,440,000-dot equivalent resolution to make it easy to get the exact image that you see through the lens
  • The large 3.0 inch (7.6cm) LCD rotates 180° horizontally and 270° vertically, making it easy to capture dynamic shots from extreme angles without getting into an awkward position
  • When the lighting around you changes, the LCD backlighting level automatically changes too, so you get comfortable, easy-on-the-eyes viewing at all times
  • Just touch the LCD to indicate the subject and the G2 focuses on it instantly. Choose from four AF modes to match the conditions. You can also operate the auto focus and shutter release at the same time with just a touch, for a completely new way to shoot
  • In iA (Intelligent Auto) mode, simply touch the subject on the LCD and the LUMIX G2 automatically selects the optimal scene mode. The G2 automatically determines the most suitable Scene mode and helps correct blurring, focus and brightness problems to capture great photos
  • Adjust the exposure compensation by sliding your finger on the aperture and shutter speed settings in the exposure meter shown on the LCD. The range in which appropriate exposure is not possible is shown in red, so you can intuitively grasp the corresponding aperture and shutter speed combinations
  • A touch is all it takes to make a variety of settings, including photo size, ISO sensitivity and white balance. You spend less time fiddling with the camera and more time getting great shots
  • The hybrid Lumix G2 lets you take both high quality photos and HD movies. You can shoot breathtaking HD (1280x 720) movies in AVCHD Lite (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264)
  • Record for a longer time without running out of memory because AVCHD Lite stores less data than Motion JPEG while maintaining stunning image clarity and detail. A dedicated button on the top lets you instantly start recording movies while shooting photos, without having to make any extra settings
  • Motion Picture P mode makes it extremely easy to shoot beautiful HD movies. You can freely set the degree of soft focusing in the background to capture rich, emotionally expressive HD movie images
  • Select iA mode and the G2 automatically activates a host of advanced functions and technologies that make it easy to capture beautiful HD movies
  • The Intelligent Scene Selector function automatically selects the most suitable Scene mode for the shooting situation you are in. These scene modes include: Portrait, Night Portrait, Scenery, Night Scenery, Close-up or Sunset
  • This function recognizes the faces of up to three people that have been pre-registered in the camera and displays their names on the LCD. The Lumix G2 then optimizes the focus and brightness of the recognized faces and captures them clearly and beautifully
  • The Face Detection AF/AE function determines if there are any faces in the image and adjusts the focus and exposure to capture them correctly
  • Once you focus on your subject, AF Tracking automatically and continuously tracks it and keeps it in focus, even if it moves, until you press the shutter release. This feature is ideal for shooting sports or fast-moving children
  • In the Intelligent Exposure mode the camera can correct the brightness in parts of the image that are too dark due to insufficient lighting, backlighting or use of the flash
  • If the subject moves as you shoot, the Intelligent ISO control automatically adjusts the ISO sensitivity and shutter speed to help prevent subject blur
  • My Color mode makes it easy to capture creative images. Just aim the camera and select any of seven preset effects, including Silhouette, Expressive, Pure and others, while checking the image in Live View
  • The Custom setting lets you adjust the color, brightness and saturation to your liking, to further expand your creative palette
  • Users can touch one thumbnail viewed among many to quickly and easily see the full size of the desired photo. Also, to view images one-by-one, photos can be dragged across the screen to browse as though flipping the pages of a book
  • The Lumix G2 is equipped with an HDMI output terminal for direct transmission of digital image and sound signals. Just connect it to an HDTV using a single HDMI mini cable (optional). It's also easy to enjoy slideshows in which both photos and movies are played according to the recorded timeline
  • On a Viera TV, you can control the camera's playback functions with Viera's remote control unit
  • Simply take your SDXC, SDHC, or SD memory card from the G2 and slip it into the card slot of a Viera or Blu-ray disc player and you're ready to view HD images. For even greater impact and entertainment fun, you can add background music and image effects to your image slideshows
  • To complement its high-quality video capabilities, the LUMIX G2 features advanced audio options, as sound is recorded with Dolby Digital Creator (included) and an optional accessory stereo microphone can be attached
  • A Wind Cut function further enhances the sound as it helps reduce noise caused from background wind
  • The Venus Engine HD II incorporates two CPUs. This not only boosts image processing speed, it also helps achieve an exceptional noise-reduction performance. Also, the two CPUs of the Venus Engine HD II allow long-time movie recording in AVCHD Lite while maintaining low power consumption
  • The Venus Engine HD II features a new circuit that makes Intelligent Resolution Technology possible too
  • In iA mode, the Lumix G2 automatically identifies parts with outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas and optimizes the edge emphasis on the outlines and detailed texture areas while using the Venus Engine noise reduction process to make the soft gradation areas smoother
  • The G2 helps eliminate the possibility of dust by placing a Supersonic Wave Filter in front of the Live MOS sensor, vibrating around 50,000 times per second, the filter repels dust and other particles. This keeps the image sensor clean at all times
  • The Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5 Asph./Mega O.I.S. lens incorporates Panasonic's Mega O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), using gyro sensors built into the lens, to suppress the blur caused by a shaky hand and make it easy to shoot clear photographs even in low-light situations
  • Adopting an inner-focus system driven by a stepping motor, the superior optical design realizes outstanding smoothness to support the high-speed AF (Auto Focus) system of Lumix G cameras

Compact, lightweight SLR

I purchased the G2 at a camera shop 6 months ago, because I wanted a lightweight, compact SLR. I handled the Canon T2i and compared the Lumix G2. The former felt bulky and heavy. The latter was nimble and light in my hand, with an excellent grip. It was quick focusing and ready to use in an instant after turning the switch on.

I purchased the G2 at a camera shop 6 months ago, because I wanted a lightweight, compact SLR. I handled the Canon T2i and compared the Lumix G2. The former felt bulky and heavy. The latter was nimble and light in my hand, with an excellent grip. It was quick focusing and ready to use in an instant after turning the switch on. The bright real time electronic viewfinder and the free angle LCD sold me. I found the learning curve for the camera to be steep. The manual accompanying the camera is unusable, unintelligible, and the only thing about the purchase that was completely unacceptable (and I have a doctoral degree!) Absent a useful instruction book, I just started using the camera, and over time, I have gradually explored many of its enormous menu of features. Pros: excellent portability factor; just what I wanted using the kit lens. It has a very sharp lens with a very useful zoom range. The low light picture quality is excellent, another thing I had hoped for. The speed of use from start up, sleep awake, focus and exposure is superb-a huge change from my dinosaur FZ20. I like the lack of barrel distortion at wide angle, and there is no drop off of light at the corners. Using programmed auto and iA modes, the exposures are right on. I especially like the quick custom menu for switching film types (e.g. black and white/color and other personalized settings.) the exposure control in iA is outstanding in difficult lighting situations. The touch screen is a feature which I did not use much; I preferred the cursors. The free angle LCD is bright and highly mobile-a very useful feature. The battery is huge, but I have found a second battery useful for a day of heavy shooting. Panasonic batteries may be required for this camera. Overall I have been very satisfied with my photographs. This camera represents a huge upgrade for me. So far, I have not found noise to be a problem in low light. CONS:1) I plan to buy the f1.7 20mm lens, but choices of other lenses for this camera are limited at present. Micro 4/3rd lenses are lighter, smaller than 4/3rd lenses. An adapter is required for 4/3rd lenses. I'd like a micro 4/3rd telephoto zoom lens with a larger aperture than the available f5.6. 2) Is 12.1 mega-pixels enough for you? I compose and frame tightly, so I don't have to crop and enlarge for most of my pics. Others may not be so disciplined, so a camera with a larger sensor and more mega-pixels my be more suitable, at the cost of bulk and weight for camera and lenses. 3) The on switch feels cheap. I wonder if it will hold up for the next 5 or so years I expect to use this camera. 4) Users will struggle with the learning curve of this highly capable camera which has both a touch screen and button cursor functions. The manufacturer should revise the manual to make it readable and useful. I have yet to use the HD movie feature much because I don't have the proper computer program to manage the format. I don't expect to use it for filmmaking other than home movie clips. Overall, I think I got what I wanted from this camera, and I have a long way to go before I will routinely use many of its features. I recently spent a week marching around Barcelona with my G2, and was quite happy with the portability, ease of use in auto modes, and quality of pictures. That the price of the camera has dropped $100 since I bought it doesn't bother me, because I have had the opportunity to capture great pics over the past 6 months using this camera.

Love to see new technology

By

from Undisclosed

Im always a fan of trying something new and it is nice to see someone who is willing to take some risks as Panasonic has and come out with some great cameras while doing so. Having used both Canon and Nikons I really find that this camera meets my needs better. No discredit to aforementioned, they are both awesome but the size and convenience for lack of a better term in the layout buttons and menus make this an easier and quicker camera for me. Its all about personal preference however, I'd say find a good retailer you can take it back if you dont like it but give it a try!

Panasonic always rocks

By

from LA, CA

finally a camera at this price that does everything it says it will. I'm not a huge fan of MOS sensors for low light recording although the color sensitivity and the battery life makes it worth it. I like that it shoots descent looking HD. Although again, I would prefer the CCD sensor for low light situations. All that said... Love Panasonic in general... they are definitely staying cutting edge.

Excellent Product

By

from St Louis, Missouri

My DMC-G2K was delivered a little less than a week ago and so far I have not been disappointed in the quality of build or picture quiality. I purchased this camera do go with my GF1 which I normally carry everywhere, but the more I use the G2K the more likley it will become my daily shooter, the digital viewfinder in the G2 is far superior to the optional viewfinder on the GF1 and the more I cecome acustomed to the new touchscreen the more I like it.

Fantastic

By

from Roma, Italy

I have been using the the new G2 for 3 days and must say what a camera. It beats my old Leica hands down for ease of use and just great pictures. The new one touch video is a nice touch. I would recommend this camera to anyone looking for a great first DLSR.
