PanasonicPanasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 Interchangeable lens system camera Panasonic introduced a new digital interchangeable lens system camera, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5, which joins Panasonic's award-winning Panasonic Lumix G Series of digital cameras, which are acclaimed for their high image quality with small and compact body and lenses. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 system camera features a newly developed 12.1 Megapixel Live MOS sensor and redesigned Venus Engine, helping to ensure true-to-life images through exceptional resolution, image rendering and color reproduction. Even in low-light situations and at a maximum 12800 high ISO sensitivity, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 produces amazing photos and videos.

The noise reduction system includes a combination 3DNR (3D Noise Reduction) and MNR (Multi-process Noise Reduction) allowing for both bright areas and dark areas to be faithfully reproduced with minimal noise in high sensitivity image recording. Sporting a sophisticated and stylish design, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 features a compact, lightweight body with built-in flash. A rubberized grip makes it easier for users to comfortably hold the Panasonic DMC-GF5 camera in one hand. Complying with Micro Four Thirds standard, a wide range of interchangeable lenses is offered to expand photographic experience even more broadly at higher level of photo quality.

Panasonic DMC-GF5 features
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5, like all cameras in the Lumix G Series, adopts Contrast AF (Auto Focus), so focusing is controlled by the image sensor. Compared with the Phase difference system AF, Contrast AF boasts higher accuracy, especially when shooting with a bright lens with small F value. To further advance the Contrast AF, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 camera incorporates full-area focusing, making it possible to set focus on any point in the field of view.

The Panasonic Lumix GF5's large, 3-inch 920,000-dot high-precision touch display and Graphic User Interface (GUI) provide users with ease of use and simple operation. The touch-control system immediately allows users to set focus on a subject just by touching the screen and users can even release the shutter to snap a photo directly from the touch screen. Once a user locks onto a subject by a touch, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 camera will track the subject with the AF tracking function, even if the subject moves. Touch Zoom is also available when the Lumix Power Zoom Lens H-PS14042 lens or H-PS45175 is mounted.

Panasonic GF5 with high-speed auto focus
Featuring an ultra high-speed Light Speed Auto Focus, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 can focus in approximately 0.09 seconds making it possible to capture even fast moving subjects clearly. Combined with Touch AF control and high-speed burst shooting at four frames per second in full resolution, it has never been easier to capture fast-moving objects clearly. Additionally, Pinpoint AF allows for even more precise focus by further enlarging the focus area, assisting, for example, to set focus directly on the pupil of an eye.

"The new Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 camera's host of shooting options makes photography even more artistic, yet easy for users of any experience level.
