PanasonicPanasonic DMC-GH2 system camera review : The introduction of the Panasonic GH1 in March of 2009 caused a small shock wave. A DSLR-type camera, in which photo and video are combined effortlessly, was previously unheard of. The competition was left looking on, and Panasonic thus got a solid grip on the heavily competitive camera market. In the meantime, Panasonic has listened well to its supporters, and hit the design table once more. The end result was shown to the world press on the first day of the Photokina 2010: the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2.

Panasonic DMC-GH2 review
If you don’t pay much attention, you won’t notice that the Panasonic GH2 is the newest Micro Four Thirds System camera. Especially if we compare it with the GH1, which is almost identical in terms of appearance. With scrupulous observation, it is noticeable that the body’s material is a bit different, as it is less smooth than its predecessor. The camera mode dial in the camera’s hand grip has been moved back, something which benefits control. These subtle differences show that Panasonic has listened well to its supporters and used their feedback to improve the camera.

Review Panasonic DMC-GH2 : Hand placement
Although the Panasonic Lumix GH2’s body is almost identical to the GH1, the hand placement is a bit different. The difference is especially in the feeling that the body gives you. The material is more refined and has a professional look. The hand grip is neatly covered with rubber and allows for the GH2 to sit in the hand perfectly. In everything, Panasonic is showing that the GH2 is a very serious camera, aimed at the enthusiastic and semi-professional photographer. A beginner will be able to use it immediately, but will most likely not get around to using the true arsenal of setting and function possibilities.

Panasonic DMC-GH2 review including a DIWA Labs test
In short, the Panasonic Lumix GH2 is not just a simple upgrade from an existing camera. In many respects you can speak of a whole new camera, but with the same jacket. We have tested the Panasonic DMC-GH2 and several new Lumix lenses for technical aspects in our DIWA Lab that is run by Kai Thon. We also ran extensive practice tests with the Panasonic Lumix GH2 in combination with the new Lumix 14mm f2.5 and 100-300mm f4.0-5.6. Our findings can be read in the following Panasonic DMC-GH2 review.
