Panasonic DMC GF2

The Panasonic Lumix DMC GF2 is remarkably small for a camera that offers you the ability to interchange lenses. The body is a shade less than 33mm wide. Without a lens attached the camera body is almost small enough to fit into a pocket.

Where the Lumix DMC GF2 differs form most Digital SLRs and micro system digital cameras is that it has a touch controlled LCD screen. The screen is 3 inches in size. With the small size of the camera body there is no room for a viewfinder.

If you would like to take extra creative control over your photos you have access to manual exposure settings. You also have the option of using automatic shooting mode if you prefer to operate the Lumix DMC GF2 along the lines of a more simple point and shoot camera. There are also a range of predefined scene modes you can use as well.

To save carrying a camcorder around with you as well as your camera the Lumix DMC GF2 can record High Definition movies. You can record stereo sound. A number of scene modes are also available for movie shooting.

Other features allow you to capture still images in RAW mode and to shoot at a maximum speed of 3.2 frames per second. The maximum ISO setting is ISO 6400.
