Panasonic Lumix With Advanced Image Processing
- Touch Pad function
- Records full HD
- Intuitive use
Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 is a Micro Four Thirds camera that is said to achieve even higher resolution than its predecessor due to the advanced image processing engine driven on a new algorithm.
Fast, responsive shooting is provided by the Precision Contrast AF system in conjunction with the “Light Speed AF” high speed AF system. Consecutive shooting has also been improved to 6 fps in 16.05-megapixel full resolution.
Utilising the 16.05 megapixel Live MOS sensor and Venus Engine, the DMC-G5 is also capable of recording 1920 x 1080/50p full HD video in AVCHD Progressive with stereo sound. Panasonic’s AF system, including practical full-time AF and tracking AF, is available in video recording.
The DMC-G5 offers mobility with a compact, lightweight body and built-in flash (GN10.5 equivalent ISO160). Its design includes resins and elastomers that make it easy and tactile to hold, an aluminium body and mode dials and control buttons for intuitive use. The camera will be available in black and silver.
The Live View Finder includes an eye sensor and can be used with the LCD at the same time due to the new Touch Pad function. The ‘Level Gauge’ feature has also been adopted for precision framing.
The DMC-G5 will be available in Australia in late August. Pricing and lens kits will be announced closer to the release date.
