Panasonic DMC GH2

The Panasonic Lumix DMC GH2 offers a range of advanced and innovative features. The Lumix DMC GH2 is a micro system digital camera that will accept different lenses in the same way that a Digital SLR does.

The Lumix DMC GH2 offers plenty of megapixels with 16 megapixels packed onto the sensor. Big attractions are likely to include the touch controlled LCD screen. The screen is 3 inches in size and can also be pulled out away from the camera body and twisted around at an angle. This can be a big help to you when shooting at awkward angles.

In addition to the LCD screen there is a viewfinder. This gives you a 100% field of view and 0.71x magnification.

As you might expect with this type of camera it has a full set of manual exposure modes. This gives you additional control over the way your photos will look. Further artistic control is available if you opt to capture your photos in RAW mode. By capturing in RAW you increase your options when it comes to image editing.

The Lumix DMC GH2 also offers options for producing 3D shots.

Another area where there are plenty of advanced options is when it comes to shooting movies. The Lumix DMC GH2 is capable of shooting Full High Definition movies. It can also record sound in stereo. You have access to manual exposure controls while shooting a movie and there are also a range of predefined movie scene modes you can choose from.
