About Panasonic DMC-GF2

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 Mirrorless Digital Camera is 19% smaller and 7% lighter than its immediate predecessor, but still has a 12.1MP Live MOS sensor, is compatible with the full range of Micro Four Thirds lenses (including Panasonic's 3D 12.5mm f/12 lens), has dazzling 1920 x 1080 HD video-in short, the speed and customization of an SLR camera in highly portable form.

A bright 3" 460,000-dot LCD display for composition and review can also be used as a touch-screen for making and changing settings like focus and exposure-a touch on a human face, for instance, switches to the portrait mode and a touch on the background or scenery switches to the scenery mode, while a touch on the subject close to the camera switches to the close-up mode.

Despite its tiny size, the GF2 is packed with photo and video goodies. The My Color mode offers 7 preset imaging effects (such as Retro, Elegant, Cinema, Monochrome, Silhouette, etc.) and also allows users to customize color, brightness and saturation on the fly. Using AVCHD Lite compression, the DMC-GF2 captures smooth 1080 HD video. The camera can also record HD video as a Motion JPEG file for drag-and-drop compatibility with many popular nonlinear editing systems. The body supports autofocus during video recording and Movie Program Mode allows for selective depth-of-field control.
