Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2

 

Panasonic's 16 megapixel GH2 may look like a DSLR but in fact it's the latest compact system alternative. Could it possibly be the best Micro Four Thirds camera we've seen?

Hugely Versatile ; One-touch HD Video recording ; Articulated touchScreen ; Fast performance ; Close to SLR image quality

Slightly cramped feel ; Expensive ; Slightly fiddly touchscreen interface ; Image quality not quite up to a DSLR

The GH2 is an incredibly versatile camera, offering image quality that comes close to a DSLR but in a body that's lighter and more compact. What's more, the flip out touchscreen, mass of manual controls, and instant-on video capabilities make it not...

Should would-be Scorseses snap up Panasonic's video-centric Micro Four Thirds camera?

Feature-stuffed and superb for movie-making, but photos should be clearer at this price point

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 builds upon the GH1 's movie prowess by offering some quirky features: a touchpanel LCD screen, super-fast autofocus and Full HD 1080p top-spec movie recording. Is this 16-megapixel hybrid camera good enough to see off...

Incredibly fast autofocus, impressive image quality to ISO 1600

2.5mm mic port, on the expensive side, plasticy exterior

The GH2 succeeds in pushing Micro Four Thirds (or indeed any hybrid cameras’) capabilities up a peg or two. The latest autofocus is very fast; so impressively so that it’s impossible not to notice just how good it is.

First Look: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2

 

You could be forgiven for picking up the Panasonic Lumix GH2 and thinking you've seen it all before. Largely, you have. The chassis is identical to the GH1 and all the others in the company's Micro Four Thirds line up, save the GF1 . As mirrorless...

Lots of horse power in all departments, 3D stills shooting, superb multi-touchscreen swivel display

Big body, no 3D video shooting, still quite a lot of ways of doing the same thing. Does it need quite so many buttons and controls?

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH2 review

 

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH2 is a digital camera that has it all. It can shoot high-quality stills, it performs well as a high-definition video camera, and it offers you the luxury of using both a touchscreen and physical buttons.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 review

 

Following up Panasonic's video darling, the DMC-GH1, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 delivers some important enhancements, including a much-needed HDMI connector. Its price and feature set--by accident or design--targets photo and video enthusiasts rather...

Excellent video quality; articulating display with generally good touch-screen interface; variable frame-rate movie mode.

Annoying AVCHD-imposed limitations for video; no way to lock AF area on touch screen; middling battery life.

It's speedy, feature-packed, and an excellent ILC for shooting video, but to consistently get really good photos out of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 requires shooting raw.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 with 14-140mm lens review

 

Photo quality fails to live up to the high price, but for videos, the smooth autofocus, extensive options and sublime quality are a winning combination.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2

 

La Lumix DMC-GH2 di Panasonic è una vera “ibrida” per la quale i filmati non sono più una funzione secondaria. Prima tra le fotocamere della categoria e oltre l'ottima qualità fotografica, la DMC-GH2 consente video Full HD (1920x1080) 50i (PAL), con...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 review

 

Despite the new 16.05-million-pixel sensor, it is the new high-speed, contrast-detection AF and video capabilities of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 that really make it stand out from its competitors. The superb EVF should allay the scepticism of those...
