With the advanced noise reduction system, you can capture beautiful images even when shooting at high ISO sensitivity levels. The DMC-GF2 also features accurate, fast contrast AF system.The DMC-GF2 can record full-HD 1920 x 1080 movies in AVCHD format with high sound quality of Dolby Digital Stereo Creator.

The DMC-GF2 can save a frame of movie as photo during playback. With the video divide function, you can divide a single video into two parts using only the camera.The DMC-GF2 features the My Color mode with a total of 8 preset modes, including the cinema mode which gives the movie cinema-like gradation. In iA mode and the My Color mode, the range of defocus can be adjusted by just moving the slider with your finger. The DMC-GF2 provides a total of 17 scene modes, and most of these modes can be used when shooting movies too.

Product Features
  • Compact and lightweight with interchangeable lenses system camera
    The Lumix GF2 is an ultra small and light DSL Micro Compact system camera which offers the superb image quality expected from Lumix.
  • Intuitively easy with a touch controlled LCD
    The Lumix GF2 is extremely easy to operate for consumers at any level, thanks to a user interface which allows for the focus to be set, or shutter released, by simply touching the large 3" touch-screen LCD. The touch-screen LCD makes taking great photos intuitive. Once a user locks on a subject by touch, the Lumix GF2 tracks the subject with the AF tracking function, even if the subject moves making it easy to take photos of moving subjects, like children playing. The contrast AF system adopted by the Lumix DMC-GF2 is not only accurate and easy to use, but also very fast.
  • Q-Menu for quick menu navigation

With the Lumix GF2's Touch Q-menu, the user can customize the camera's shortcuts with the most commonly used settings. Together with the simple button components, including the dedicated buttons for movie recording and iA (Intelligent Auto) mode which lights in-use, users can operate the camera intuitively with ease.

Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewVery Good

  • THE GOOD

    The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 delivers excellent performance for its class, in a relatively compact, comfortable design with a streamlined, usable touch-screen interface implementation.

  • THE BAD

    Panasonic's JPEG processing remains subpar for this class of camera, and the GF2's inability to lock the focus area from accidental screen presses--a flaw of all the company's touch-screen ILCs--remains a huge point of frustration. It also has a disappointingly banal feature set, including a lack of manual controls during video capture. Also, an EVF costs extra, and the battery doesn't last very long.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    Though we still really like Panasonic's GF series, there are several trade-offs to take into account before you buy the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2. Its raw-format images look extremely good, but JPEG shooters looking for best-possible photo quality may get frustrated by image artifacts. And while lots of photographers will appreciate its relatively compact but functional design and zippy performance--though still not for action shooting--there's nothing special about its feature set, including underpowered video capture.

    great for going beyond point and shoots.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    lens i great not as great as the 20mm but still great. camera is cute and weighs very little for all the features it comes with. recordes for as much space on the card you have so no limits. no audio jack though but a zoom recorder is a better option anyways with this setup. its cheaper and more versatile then the sony mirrorless systems, has bigger sensor then the nikons, and less expense then the olympus although it image stabilization is lens based.
