  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix G10 is an affordable option for photographers who want D-SLR image quality and speed without the bulk of a traditional D-SLR.
  • Pros: D-SLR image quality. Camcorder-like 720p30 HD video recording. SDXC card support.
  • Cons: Poor low-light performance (images are noisy above ISO 800). Microphone picks up lens noise during video capture. Proprietary USB cable.

DP Review
9 November 2010
  • Summary: The G10 is Panasonic's first entry-level Micro Four Thirds camera. Its core systems are capable and reliable, and although its menu system is a little dated, the G10 is a easy camera to find your way around. Unfortunately it is marred by a poor EVF, which is almost unusable in some shooting situations.
  • Pros: Reliably good image quality up to ISO 800, usable (just) up to ISO 3200, Accurate metering and focus, Good JPEG resolution (though stick to raw for best results), Fast and responsive in use, Good ergonomics all around, excellent build quality, nice handling, Very useful status panel and quick menu allow direct access to many important settings, Highly customizable - up to three custom modes and many user-definable options, Very flexible AF-system with movable AF-area ...
  • Cons: Poor EVF compared to G1/GH1/G2, No automatic EVF/LCD switch, Fixed LCD screen, Out-of-camera JPEG color not as appealing as best competitors, New kit lens not as good as predecessor, Image quality at ISO 3200 poor, ISO 6400 verging on the unusable, High ISO default noise reduction a bit too high, Dynamic range still not as good as best APS-C competitors, User interface looking a bit dated, Motion JPEG not as efficient as AVCHD (lite) format for video shooting.

Panasonic G10 Review

  • Summary: For the price, the Panasonic G10 is tough to beat.  It misses out on some of the features of its bigger sibling, the G2, (like a swivel LCD, auto EVF/LCD switching, AVCHD recording, external mic, etc.), but it hits the nail on the head for an affordable consumer model.  The Panasonic G10 does the essentials well: solid image quality, HD video capture, quick/reliable autofocus and live view image composition.

Panasonic Lumix G10 Review: Hello, Micro Four Thirds

LaptopMemo
20 July 2010
  • Conclusion: At the end of every review, I have to make a “conclusion/ending/do I like it or not” sort of thing. The G10′s poor ISO performance compared to normal DSLRs and other Micro Four Thirds cameras can really be a deal breaker for any consumer, even in lit indoor conditions, the ISO starts to fuss up. The great image quality though is nothing you can simply walk by, either. So what’s my point? The Lumix G10 is a perfect buy for the price, power, and pro looks.
  • Pros: Great image quality, DSLR design, albeit slightly large for a real 4/3rds camera, Autofocus in both stills and HD video, Battery lasts more than 430 stills
  • Cons: Terrible, low-res, viewfinder, Noisy ISO quality, A little bigger than a 4/3rds should be

New Panasonic Micro-Four Thirds Cam Wants You to Step Up and Shoot, Baby

Wired
15 June 2010
  • Excerpt: The Micro-Four Thirds genre is growing up. No longer the pricey young upstart, the format is expanding its reach to the budget-conscious masses. Case in point: Panasonic’s Lumix G10. The G10 is meant for a shooter who wants to escape from the point-and-shoot world and play with interchangeable lenses, but who doesn’t want a bulky, prism-bound DSLR. Built around the larger 12-megapixel Micro-Four Thirds sensor, it delivers a bump in image quality and creative control.
  • Pros: Looks and feels like a mini-SLR. Lightweight and easy to use with one hand. Comfy tactile finish and good ergonomics. A credible, beginner, interchangeable-lens camera. Dedicated iA button for no-brainer shooting.
  • Cons: Pointless electronic viewfinder. Decidedly average auto-focusing in low-light conditions.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 Review

Digital Camera Review
13 May 2010
  • Summary: CONCLUSION The Panasonic DMC-G10 is the best-priced model in its line-up of MFT cameras. It has a lot of the same features as its predecessors, including the same body, build, look and feel. Many of the same specs are carried over from the G1 and GH1, though Panasonic took a few cost-saving measures to make the G10 more affordable.
  • Pros: Price, Good Image Quality, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor ISO performance, Slow AF performance in low-light, Purple fringing in high-contrast scenes

  • Conclusion: • Eye detection system. To switch between screens on the G10 you have to press a button, the G2 senses when you want to use the eyelevel finder and switches automatically.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 review

  • Summary: For most photographers considering buying the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10, the most important fact is that it is capable of recording the same level of detail as the other cameras in the Panasonic range. The company has not compromised in this area. The cost savings have been made at the expense of a few handling refinements, which may be of no consequence to some prospective users.
