Panasonic launches new Lumix G-Series cameras

Japan’s well-known electronics firm Panasonic has launched its two new Micro Four-Thirds cameras viz. the Lumix DMC-G2 and the DMC-G10.

The Lumix DMC-G2 is equipped with a 3-inch articulated touch-screen, which enables intuitive and quick focus settings just by a single touch. Meanwhile, the G10, which comes with a 3-inch fixed LCD screen, is a budget alternative to the Lumix DMC-G2.

The Lumix DMC-G2 has a 12-megapixel sensor and a 1.44-megapixel viewfinder. It is made more up-to-date with a Venus Engine HD II processing technique.

On the other hand, the DMC-G10 comes with a lower resolution, 202,000-pixel viewfinder. The DMC-G10 is also equipped with a 12-megapixel sensor and a Venus Engine HD II.

Both, the Lumix DMC-G2 and the DMC-G10, are capable of recording MJPEG 720p HD video footage. Both models have a built in microphone for recording Mono Sound.

Both cameras will hit the market in June, with a starting tag price of £500.
