Panasonic Debuts Camera with Interchangeable Lens

Panasonic Lumix G2 DSLR Panasonic Lumix G2 DSLR

Panasonic has created the LUMIX G2, a 12.1-megapixel, interchangeable lens system camera with a 3-inch, movable LCD touch-control screen.

With a wide-viewing angle that rotates 180 degrees from side to side and tilts 270 degrees up and down, the camera offers an almost 100 percent field of view. The new touch screen also allows for more easily accessible controls with single-touch auto refocusing, image capturing and playback. Image thumbnails can be quickly perused by swiping them across the screen. Once locked on to a subject, the 60-fps live-view sensor allows for easy subject tracking. The sensor has been reformatted to consume less power with each shot.

The G2 shoots 720p HD video and utilizes Dolby Digital Creator for audio pickup. A wind-cut function helps reduce background noise. Video can be shot in seven preset color modes: expressive, retro, pure, elegant, monochrome, dynamic art and silhouette.

The G2 comes equipped with the LUMIX G VARIO 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH/MEGA O.I.S. lens and is compatible with any interchangeable lens that complies with four-thirds standards via an optional adapter.

The Panasonic LUMIX G2 is available in red, blue and black models and retails for $799.
