Product description
Product Information
Full-time live view works with both the LCD and the live view finder. This means that, no matter which way you shoot, you see before you shoot how adjusting the exposure compensation, white balance, aperture and even the shutter speed will affect the image. On the G10, both the LCD and the live view Finder boast true full-time live view capability.The G10's 4/3-type 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor offers the best of both worlds the superior image quality of a CCD sensor, and the lower power consumption of a CMOS sensor. This sensor is also advantageous for photo and movie recording with its high S/N, thanks to an advanced circuit structure that is unaffected by the noise generated in each of the circuits. It results in clear images even when taken at high ISO sensitivity.With the G10 you're always ready for those sudden, spur-of-the-moment photo opportunities. Just press the dedicated iA button and aim the camera at your subject. The G10 automatically determines the most suitable Scene mode and helps correct blurring, focus, and brightness problems to capture great photos.While taking photos my color mode makes it easy to capture creative images. Just aim the camera and select any of seven preset effects, including silhouette, expressive, pure and others, while checking the image in live view. The custom setting lets you adjust the color, brightness and saturation to your liking, to further expand your creative palette.The venus engine HD II incorporates two CPUs. This not only boosts image processing speed, it also helps achieve an exceptional noise-reduction performance. Also the venus engine HD II features a circuit that makes intelligent resolution technology possible.In iA mode, the G10 automatically identifies parts with outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas, and optimizes the edge emphasis on the outlines and detailed texture areas while using the Venus Engine noise reduction process to make the soft gradation areas smoother. You can capture stunning images with details you've never seen before in both photo and movie recording.If dust or other foreign matter gets inside the camera when you're changing lenses, it could cling to the image sensor and show up as a spot in photos. The G10 helps eliminate this possibility by placing a supersonic wave filter in front of the live MOS sensor. Vibrating around 50,000 times per second, the filter repels dust and other particles. This keeps the image sensor clean at all times and eliminates the need for cumbersome maintenance procedures.

Product Features
  • Double live view for easy, accurate shooting
    Full-time live view works with both the LCD and the live view finder. This means that, no matter which way you shoot, you see before you shoot how adjusting the exposure compensation, white balance, aperture and even the shutter speed will affect the image. On the G10, both the LCD and the live view Finder boast true full-time live view capability.
  • Higher image quality, lower power consumption
    The G10's 4/3-type 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor offers the best of both worlds the superior image quality of a CCD sensor, and the lower power consumption of a CMOS sensor. This sensor is also advantageous for photo and movie recording with its high S/N, thanks to an advanced circuit structure that is unaffected by the noise generated in each of the circuits. It results in clear images even when taken at high ISO sensitivity.
  • Capture magnificent shots with a single press of the iA button
    With the G10 you're always ready for those sudden, spur-of-the-moment photo opportunities. Just press the dedicated iA button and aim the camera at your subject. The G10 automatically determines the most suitable Scene mode and helps correct blurring, focus, and brightness problems to capture great photos.
  • My color mode: for more creative shooting
    While taking photos my color mode makes it easy to capture creative images. Just aim the camera and select any of seven preset effects, including silhouette, expressive, pure and others, while checking the image in live view. The custom setting lets you adjust the color, brightness and saturation to your liking, to further expand your creative palette.
  • The high-speed, high-performance venus engine HD II
    The venus engine HD II incorporates two CPUs. This not only boosts image processing speed, it also helps achieve an exceptional noise-reduction performance. Also the venus engine HD II features a circuit that makes intelligent resolution technology possible.
  • Brings out the detail
    In iA mode, the G10 automatically identifies parts with outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas, and optimizes the edge emphasis on the outlines and detailed texture areas while using the Venus Engine noise reduction process to make the soft gradation areas smoother. You can capture stunning images with details you've never seen before in both photo and movie recording.
  • Dust reduction system protects the image sensor
    If dust or other foreign matter gets inside the camera when you're changing lenses, it could cling to the image sensor and show up as a spot in photos. The G10 helps eliminate this possibility by placing a supersonic wave filter in front of the live MOS sensor. Vibrating around 50,000 times per second, the filter repels dust and other particles. This keeps the image sensor clean at all times and eliminates the need for cumbersome maintenance procedures.

Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewVery Good

  • THE GOOD

    Fastest in its class thus far; well-built; intelligent design for enthusiasts, with lots of direct-access controls.

  • THE BAD

    Mediocre EVF; no dedicated record button; overly noisy JPEG photos.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    How the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 stacks up to its competition depends upon your priorities: it's the speed king, with the best design for manually oriented shooters, but its image quality lags the field.

    good value for the four hundred

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Bought the cam about 1 month ago. Used it in my trip to Scandinavia to shot mostly scenaries (lakes, rivers, mountains). This is my first camera, so I am not so familiar with custom set of all parameters, used presets generally (portrait, scenery etc). All main functions/presets can be accesed by buttons & special rings. Usability is on the high level. My mates brought some mirror cams (canon, nikon) to that trip and I could compare quality of their shots with mine ones - no significant differencies, so I am glad to get g10. Good value for ~400$ I paid. As Ive heard and it was proved by my experience - the default lenses are not the best choice for dark conditions and their are so big... It seriously lowers size/weight characteristic of the cam. My be I'll change default lens in the future for smth smaller & lighter.
    Anyway - good choice for the novicers who dont want to spend huge money for the cam used 1-2-3 times of year as I do.

    Great Camera for the money

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    This camera body is an excellent value when used with legacy lens or Panasonic and Olympus lens. If you do not need video this is an excellent micro 4/3 camera and the pictures speak for themselves.
