PanasonicPanasonic Lumix DMC-G5 digital system camera : Panasonic announces a new addition to the popular line of Lumix G series cameras, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5. The newest Digital Single Lens Mirrorless camera offering from Panasonic, the DMC-G5, features a newly integrated 16.05-megapixel Live MOS sensor and redesigned Venus Engine to render clear, crisp images in both photo and video recording. Featuring a compact, lightweight body with built-in flash, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 boasts ultra-high mobility while offering users powerful camera performance which achieves spectacular image quality, realizing true-to-life photo details through excellent resolution, image rendering and color production.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5's high-grade lens and precision AF (Auto Focus) achieves high resolution, optimal balance of resolution and noise reduction to produce lifelike image rendering and high precision auto exposure and white balance for faithful color reproduction. A redesigned Venus Engine incorporated into the DMC-G5 features exceptionally advanced signal processing capabilities, producing clear, crisp images in both photo and video recording.

AF system incorporated into the Panasonic G5
Like all cameras in the Lumix G series, the Panasonic DMC-G5 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 values. To further advance the Contrast AF, the Panasonic DMC-G5 incorporates full-area Touch AF, making it possible to set the focus on any point in the field of view. Additionally the Panasonic DMC-G5 offers ultra high-speed Light Speed AF, that quickly locks onto a subject, making it possible to capture even fast moving subjects clearly.

Panasonic DMC-G5 features a bright LVF
The Panasonic G5's large, bright 1,440,000-dot equivalent LVF (Live View Finder) retains outstanding viewability and features approximately 100% field of view. Suppressing color breakup, the LVF of the Panasonic DMC-G5 assures stunning image view for any subject or scene. The LVF is newly designed to integrate an eye sensor for the Panasonic DMC-G5, which allows image output between the LVF and LCD screen to be switched automatically with the eye sensor on the LVF (which features optional sensitivity of high, low and off). Additionally Eye Sensor AF (Auto Focus) automatically starts focusing when the photographer looks into the EVF to capture spur-of-the-moment shooting opportunities.

Touch LCD screen on the Lumix DMC-G5
A large, 920,000-dot high resolution LCD screen with wide-viewing angle rotates 180 degrees to the side, tilts 270 degrees up and down and offers approximately 100% field of view. Touch screen operation on the LCD screen of the Panasonic DMC-G5 allows for simple shooting or playback of images and the new Touch Pad function enables the use of both LVF and LCD simultaneously, which encourages more intuitive shooting. Lag time of image output has been minimized by approximately 18% compared to the Panasonic Lumix G5's predecessor, the Lumix G3, making it easier to monitor fast-moving subjects.

Panasonic DMC-G5 review

Panasonic DMC-G5 records Full HD video
Not only does the Panasonic DMC-G5 produce stunning still imagery, but it also records high quality video. With the ability to record high-resolution full-HD 1,920x1,080 60p videos in AVCHD Progressive (MPEG-4) or MP4 format, subjects with fast motion and fine details are reproduced clearly. In addition to practical full-time AF, the Touch AF in video recording also lets the user enjoy professional-like selective focusing which allows the focus to be shifted while shooting video and AF Tracking easily locks onto a subject to focus, even when it moves. The Extra Tele Conversion function on the Panasonic DMC-G5 extends zoom range Max 4.8x without deterioration of image quality.
