Panasonic Lumix G10

LUMIX DMC-G10 is world lightest digital interchangeable lens camera with a viewfinder. The G10 comes with features like iA (Intelligent Auto) mode, 720p video recording, optical image stabilizer, automatic intelligent scene selector mode and AF tracking. Like G2, Panasonic G10 also features 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor and the new Venus Engine HD II to help separate chromatic noise from luminance noise and apply the optimal noise reduction to each……….

Thanks to the powerful on the side of the case always secure, even-handed with the camera take pictures problems. Sure, the housing is also in the Lumix G10 plastic made unmistakable – but this plastic is without doubt one of the pleasant variety.

The mirrorless market keeps growing and growing. The G10 is one of Panasonic’s latest Micro Four Thirds format interchangeable-lens cameras. For those who still aren’t familiar, mirrorless models like this offer the versatility of a dSLR (and very similar image quality) in a more compact body. How do they achieve this feat? No prism. The downside is that mirrorless cameras have no optical viewfinders (though their electronic viewfinders are still better than live view mode). Anyhow, the G10 is the “lite” option of Panasonic’s M4/3 offerings for 2010. Not only is it supposedly the lightest Micro Four Thirds yet (Olympus’ E-PL1 is the smallest), but it’s lighter on features than its big brother, the G2. At $600, this competes directly with the Olympus E-PL1.

The Lumix G Micro System has revolutionized the photography industry ever since the release of the Panasonic G1, the world’s first interchangeable lens system camera based on the Micro Four Thirds System standard,” commented David Briganti, Senior Product Manager, Imaging, Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company. “We continue to expand this award-winning LUMIX G Series, and with its easy-to-use features and compact size, we expect the G10 to attract a lot of new users who want to step-up from their point-and-shoots.


The G10 employs a mirrorless structure as part the Micro Four Thirds System standard and eliminates a number of components that are found in a traditional interchangeable lens camera. Thanks to this innovative structure, the camera claims to be the world’s lightest system camera in a compact digital camera design. Furthermore, its lightweight body will come armed as part of its kit along with the newly announced Lumix G VARIO 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH/MEGA O.I.S. lens.

The camera bundles in an array of features that render it easy to use. These include the iA (Intelligent Auto) mode that comes with a novel dedicated iA button. The mode when shooting still photos features MEGA O.I.S., Intelligent ISO Control, Intelligent Exposure, Intelligent Scene Selector and more. Recording 1280 x 720 HD video in Motion JPEG, QVGA, VGA and WVGA formats, users can simultaneously benefit from the high quality lens and the flexibility to change to other lenses. The camera also includes AF Tracking and Face Recognition function.

Most clearly reveal the austerity measures on the display but the Lumix G10: It sits rigidly and firmly on the back, the smart clamshell and swivel mechanism remains the larger Lumix DMC -G2 reserved . Even more painful , however, that the display of the Lumix DMC -G10 is sensitive to touch. With the innovative touch screen of the G2 can set the camera simply faster and more convenient. All the same, size and resolution of the monitor , Panasonic has not changed in the Lumix DMC – G10. The display continues to dissolve to 460,000 pixels and has a lush diagonal of three inches (7.6 cm). In the video viewfinder of the Lumix DMC -G10 Panasonic , however, has once again unpacked the thick red pencil : he shows the viewfinder only very pixelated coarse ( only 202 000 pixels compared to 1.44 million in the Lumix DMC -G2 ) – and what is even worse : he is significantly smaller (0.52 -times magnification of the viewfinder image on the exit pupil ) and the superior video viewfinder of the Lumix DMC -G2. If you have this camera almost feel through the viewfinder of a DSLR to look , so is the video viewfinder of the Lumix DMC -G10 more of a stopgap measure . In particular, glasses will get used to the viewfinder of the camera is difficult , too , he gives the impression of looking into a peep show .

The bottom line is can the Lumix DMC -G10 serving afloat, the most important settings are found without long study of the manual. Panasonic has the camera extensively equipped with dedicated buttons and switches and it also donated the clever click- wheel to the right thumb.

While last week saw the entry of a new Pentaxoffering in the digital camera terrain, it looks like Panasonic is grabbing the attention this week. Panasonic announced the new Lumix G10 which it claims to be the world’s lightest digital interchangeable lens system camera with a viewfinder. The compact and easy-to-use device should enable photo enthusiasts to shoot high-quality images and HD videos effortlessly.
