First Look Preview
The little Lumix GF5 joins its predecessor, the GF3, in Panasonic’s line of Micro Four Thirds interchangeable-lens compacts, bringing with it a few sweet upgrades.
A redesigned user interface that is clearer and and easier to use, allowing for quicker access to scene and shooting modes.
Improved touch screen
A higher-resolution (920,000-dot) 3-inch, touchscreen display lets you focus or fire the shutter. A revamped 12.1-megapixel LiveMOS sensor and Venus processing engine boosts maximum ISO to 12,800. The small camera is easier to hold, too, with an added rubber grip.
For neophytes, a new Scene Guide shows 23 sample photos: Pick one like the scene you’re shooting, and the GF5 suggests settings to help you get the shot.
The GF5 is a all around camera for anyone who is looking for a camera with over all good still photos and video performance.Incoming search terms:
