Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 Digital Camera Reviews and Specs

Description

The DMC-GH2 boasts its high performance to make the photographic experience even more comfortable and fun. It features the world’s fastest*1 level Light Speed AF of approx. 0.1 second which is achieved by reducing the detection time for focusing by doubling the drive speed from 60 frames per second to 120 frames per second. Not only the accuracy but also the speed excels by far than the high-end D-SLRs with phase difference AF with the advanced contrast AF system in the DMC-GH2.

1. Panasonic DMC-GH2 Preview by DpReview.com

When Panasonic first launched the GH1, its second Micro Four Thirds camera, it was widely seen as simply being a G1 with video shooting and a considerably more expensive kit lens. And, if your primary concern was stills photography then this wasn’t an entirely unreasonable assessment. However, its real appeal was not that it had video, but that it offered what was, at the time, some of the most flexible, high quality video available. Again, the 14-140mm F4.0-5.8 kit zoom may not have been cheap but it had been specifically designed and built with fast, quiet autofocus and stepless aperture control to allow AF during movie shooting and exposure changes without sudden changes in brightness.

2. Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 (Black, with 14-42mm lens) by Cnet

Following up Panasonic’s video darling, the DMC-GH1, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 delivers some important enhancements, including a much-needed HDMI connector. Its price and feature set–by accident or design–targets photo and video enthusiasts rather than the entry-level point-and-shoot upgrader.

3. Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 First Impressions Review by DigitalCameraInfo.com

The Lumix DMC-GH2 is the new flagship of the Panasonic Micro Four Thirds camera range, which offers interchangeable lenses in a compact package. Our first impressions of this camera are that it adds some useful features (such as 3D images and some new movie modes), but there are a few features missing that we would have liked to have seen to really push the envelope, such as 3D video and a true 1080p 60fps mode.
