“Panasonic has unveiled a Digital Single Lens Mirrorless camera, the LUMIX G DMC-G5. The LUMIX G realizes high-quality photo images with real-to-life
details through excellent resolution, image rendering and colour reproduction.
The new DMC-G5 achieves even higher resolution with the advanced image processing engine driven on a new algorithm and faster response. The precision Contrast AF system boasts high speed AF system “Light Speed AF”. Consecutive shooting is also improved for 6 fps in 16.05-megapixel full resolution.
Taking advantage of the 16.05-megapixel Live MOS sensor and Venus Engine, DMC-G5 is also capable of recording 1,920 x 1,080 60p(NTSC)/50p(PAL) full HD video in AVCHD Progressive with stereo sound. Advanced AF system including practical full-time AF and tracking AF is available in video recording so that every photographer can enjoy high quality video recording with minimum ease.
The external design of the camera has been developed with no compromising on grip, dial, coating — everything to detail. The 1,440,000-dot equivalent Live View Finder of approx. 1.4x (approx. 0.7x) with 100 per cent field of view newly integrates eye sensor and it can be used with LCD at the same time as the new Touch Pad function. Level gauge is also newly adopted for precision framing.
The popular creative control increases its filter option to 14 for the enjoyment of artistic expression. In addition to multi-capable shooting assist function iA(intelligent auto) Plus mode, the scene guide is available for beginners to supports learning photography with ease.
