Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2


Panasonic aims to expand the audience for compact system cameras beyond photo enthusiasts with the second generation Lumix DMC-GF2. But is its aim true?

DSLR-quality images ; Interchangeable lenses ; Full-HD 1080p video capture ; DSLR-quality images ; DSLR-quality images

3D shots are low-res ; Not worth upgrading over the GF1

While the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a worthy successor to the existing and soon to be phased out GF1, it's not the most direct, like-for-like replacement. This means that existing owners may well want to hang on to the camera they've already got -...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 review


The world's smallest interchangeable lens camera has arrived, but does it shoot like the big boys?

An almost-DSLR shrunk into a tiny package without killing the quality. Magic!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2


The world's smallest compact system (or “hybrid”) camera with a built-in flash also boasts a touchscreen capability too. But does all this techno wizardry push good old standard ergonomics a bit too far out the window? Pocket-lint's Panasonic Lumix GF2...

Small size, touchscreen, movie quality

No mode dial, 14mm kit lens bundle only, no viewfinder

The GF2 gets a whole lot of things right: it’s small and light and can easily fit into the pocket. The touchscreen is very future thinking but you don’t have to use it if you don’t want to, meaning there’s always a backup button to press in most...

Slimmer and lighter than the GF1 but image quality is eclipsed by the cheaper Sony NEX-5

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 review


The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2, which will replace last year's Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1, adds a few notable features, including a touchscreen-controlled interface, support for shooting 3D still images (when used with Panasonic's recently announced 3D Micro...

Panasonic has not announced pricing yet, and prospective buyers are in for a bit of a wait: the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is slated for availability in January 2011. We think it will be worth the wait.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 review


The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a superb little camera: it is an immense improvement over the GF1, a camera that until just a few months ago was a worthy competitor in the compact system camera market. Its build quality and handling make it a pleasure...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 micro four thirds camera


Review While Panasonic further extends the range of its Micro Four Thirds cameras with the recently announced Lumix DMC-G3 [1], this new arrival with its bulging bridge form factor won't be for everyone. Keeping up with Olympus with its PEN [2] models,...

Compact Micro Four Thirds camera with 3D shooting capability.

Panasonic Lumix GF2: The GF1 replacement has arrived

Though not a giant leap on, the Panasonic Lumix GF2 will maintain the respect shown its precursor, even as the CSC market becomes more crowded
