Panasonic Lumix G2


Panasonic's new flagship mirrorless system camera has HD video and a touch-screen monitor.

SLR quality in a more compact body ; Articulated touchscreen ; Good quality standard lens ; HD video with external mic input ; Manual controls

Expensive ; Video only 720p not 1080p ; Electronic viewfinder not as good as optical one

The Panasonic Lumix G2 is only an incremental upgrade from the original G1, but most of the changes are for the better. The touch-screen is, as always, just a gimmick, but the video mode is good. Build quality, performance and image quality are all...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 review


Panasonic's G2 is a well-specified camera and the new kit lens is a great upgrade, but its image quality still can't match comparably priced DSLRs.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 review


Available in black, red or blue it has a tactile thin rubber body coating that makes it easy to grip. As with its GH1 stablemate, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 offers HD video recording; here 720p in AVCHD format and with a dedicated button to invoke...

The best combination here of image quality, camera build and features, we highly recommend the Panasonic Lumix G2’s one-touch HD video recording, choice of viewfinders and its tiltable LCD. Buying in to the Micro FourThirds concept in the first place...

European Multimedia Camera 2010-2011 - Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2


One of the most exciting features of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 is its vari-angle 3-inch (3:2) touch-screen monitor, from which one can both take control of shooting settings and activate the shutter by touching the subject on-screen. The camera's...

It is hard not to be impressed with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2. It takes the best features of its predecessor, the G1, and adds video capture, a touchscreen and a few tweaks to the button placement.Of all the features available in the G2, it is the...

Panasonic Lumix G2


It was March when I had a chance to wander round the Focus show with a pre production version of this DSLR unit. Now in late autumn I finally get to look at the boxed version and to try all the G2 has to offer for real.

I am struggling to find any fault with this camera. It has an HDMI (mini) out and with a cable you can view images and video direct onto a TV but no such cable is supplied. While these cables do exist few manufacturers provide them. Buying them is a...
