Speed Key to New Lumix

  • Downsized body
  • Intuitive touch control
  • World’s fastest Light Speed

Compliant with the Micro Four Thirds System standard, Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-GH2 combines a compact body with advanced functions that achieve both high performance and operational ease, claims the manufacturer.

The new camera is claimed to have the world’s fastest level Light Speed AF of approximately 0.1 second to capture spur-of-the-moment opportunities in sharp focus. Key components include the sensor and the image processing engine are enhanced to achieve high performance and render images with high resolution, good gradation and high sensitivity.

The DMC-GH2 is designed for even more impressive and imaginative AVCHD movie recording. It features Full HD 1920 x 1080 movie recording in smooth 50i, with a sensor output of 50p, and supports 1080/24p native mode with 24Mbps – all adding up to outstanding image quality. The new Cinema mode can be selected to create rich, cinema-like gradation, and Variable Movie mode makes it possible to record at a variable frame rate. The Extra Tele Conversion extends the zoom range up to 2.6x.

The camera comes with the newly developed Multi Aspect Wide Screen LVF (Live View Finder) and the free-angle Intelligent LCD. The range of interchangeable lenses is another advantage of the LUMIX G Micro System which now has a total of 11 lenses. The DMC-GH2 will be available in Australia in mid-November.
