We've just posted our first set of full-resolution test shots from a production-level Panasonic GF2 digital camera!
The Panasonic GF2 is the smallest of the company's Micro Four Thirds-mount models, and although it doesn't quite reach the compact nature of Sony's aggressively-styled NEX-5, it's still among the smallest SLD models yet announced. The Lumix GF2 is based around a Panasonic N-MOS image sensor with twelve effective megapixel resolution, and features a 3.0-inch LCD display with 460,000 dot resolution. The GF2's LCD is overlaid with a touch-screen panel, allowing it to serve as an input device with a similar user interface to that seen previously on the Lumix G2. Touch features include the ability to lock focus and exposure, then trip the shutter release, all by simply tapping on your subject on the DMC-GF2's LCD panel. As well as still image recording, the Lumix GF2 can capture movies at up to 1,920 x 1,080 pixel resolution, with a rate of 60 interlaced fields per second, from 30 frames per second sensor data. See our Panasonic GF2 Hands-on Preview for more details and check out the Panasonic GF2 Samples page for the images we've shot so far, including links to select RAW files.
