Will You Buy Panasonic Lumix GF5?

Panasonic Lumxi GF5, great successor to 2011’s Panasonic GF3, will be released around June. Would you like to pay $599 for the latest G series system camera? Let’s have a quick look at its main features.


Small and Light-Weight Body:
The DMC-GF5 is designed in sophisticated profile of ultra-compact body while achieving higher image quality even in high sensitivity. In addition to the basic features desired for the DSLR cameras, the DMC-GF5 features a host of options that makes photography even more artistic yet easy – enjoyable enough for users stepped up from digital compact cameras.


Five Colors Available:
DMC-GF5k (K-Black)  DMC-GF5R (R-Red)  DMC-GF5T (T-Brown)  
DMC-GF5W (W-White)    DMC-GF5N (N-Gold) 


12.1-megapixel Live MOS Sensor
The DMC-GF5 incorporates newly developed 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor which features high sensitivity signal processing. Both photodiode circuit and readout circuit are also optimized to minimize noise generation through processing to readout. Furthermore, newly added NR circuit completes Panasonic’s excellent noise reduction system that thoroughly removes noise left at final processing stage.


Micro Four Thirds System Standard
By adopting the Micro Four Thirds System standard, the DMC-GF5 features mirror less structure that eliminates the mirror box and optical viewfinder unit. This carefully preserves the image quality while maintaining a compact profile, and provides you with even higher levels of performance in a digital interchangeable lens system camera.


Image Style
You can manually choose from 6 color types to get even more detailed image settings, or to match the shooting situation. In addition, the contrast, sharpness, saturation, or noise reduction for each mode parameter can be customized in 5 steps and stored in memory. In Custom Mode, finely customized settings can be stored for easy recall and use.


1080p Full HD Video
The DMC-GF5 is an advanced photographic tool for recording not only great photos but also beautiful full HD 1,920 x 1,080 videos in AVCHD (MPEG-4 / H.264) format. The AVCHD format features almost twice the recording time in HD quality than the conventional Motion JPEG and excels in the compatibility with AV devices like HD TVs or Blu-ray Disc players.


The DMC-GF5 can also record videos in MP4 format. This format is suitable for editing videos on a computer or uploading those to websites. Resolution can be selected among 1,920 x 1,080 (20Mbps), 1,280 x 720 (10Mbps), and 640 x 480 (4Mbps), all at 30p (NTSC) / 25p (PAL).


3D shooting
The compact 3D-capable interchangeable lens, LUMIX G 12.5mm / F12, allows easier handling and instant 3D shooting with cameras without a special structure for 3D shooting. It produces 3D images without distortion or time lag between left and right images, even for moving objects. The 3D images, even close-up shots, taken with this lens are easy on the eyes when viewed on VIERA 3D TVs.


Whatever, let’s count down for Lumix DMC-GF5!
