Diwa award for the E-PL1 and the G2

Share

Panasonic won three DIWA awards with the Panasonic G2, the Panasonic DMC-FX66 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 features the world’s first touch-screen shooting control in a system camera. This small mirror-less system camera, tailor-made for the super-compact Micro Four Thirds System standard, makes the G2 package exceptionally portable, yet delivering professional image quality. In addition to its compactness, the Panasonic DMC-G2 receives its DIWA Gold Awards for its intuitive operation, first class screen and LVF (Live View Finder), and last but not least – its ability to capture high quality 12.1 MP stills and HD movies.

P.S.: The Panasonic G2 is currently in Stock for $649.95 at Amazon (Click here)

Also the Olympus E-PL1 won the DIWA Gold Award:

When it comes to user-friendly operation without losing creativity, the Olympus PEN E-PL1 really responds on demand. Special creative filters, HD-movie support, built-in flash and comfortable Autofocus Live View give photographers a complete set of photographic tools in a remarkably small package. Add to this its easy operation, photo shooting fun and professional image quality; a combination that made the DIWA organization honor the Olympus PEN E-PL1 camera with a Gold Award.

Kai Thon, test manager of DIWA Labs comments: <With the PEN range, Olympus has proved that it is perfectly possible to combine system cameras flexibility and professional image quality with a super-compact camera body. The Olympus PEN E-PL1 also has a built-in flash and improved control functions for added versatility. All in all, a full featured camera for any photographer who wishes to scale down in size, without compromising on performance and image quality. >”

The Olympus E-Pl1 is currently in Stock for $509 at Amazon (Click here)

Panasonic GH2 without 25p in PAL regions? (P.S.: 14-140mm firmware upgrade)


Panasonic GH2 30P Test

EosHD reports that:”I’ve been told by a source close to Panasonic that the final (non-prototype) PAL camera does indeed lack 25p and only has 24p“. If the rumor prooves to be correct than this is really a sad decision. I would love to know from Panasonic why they didn’t add 25p!

P.S.: Panasonic new14-140mm lens firmware update is now available for download at Panasonic Japan. The new firmware improves the speed of AF(Auto Focus) performance.
