Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2

  |   by DigitalCameraReview Staff

The Lumix GH2, more so than its GF1 and GF2 counterparts, is built on the form factor of a traditional DSLR. The lack of a mirror box and everything that makes Micro Four Thirds so micro means that it’s substantially smaller than any currently available DSLR. New to the GH2 is a 16.05 megapixel Live MOS sensor. The ISO range stretches up to 12800, and the new sensor offers a faster readout speed bumping up full-resolution burst shooting to 5 frames per second. The GH2’s touchscreen is one of its primary differentiating features from the GH1. The touchscreen offers touch shutter and touch AF functions. You’ll either like these options and use them or ignore them completely, and that’s just fine with Panasonic. More than enough physical controls are provided, making the touchscreen a take-it-or-leave it feature.
