Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2

Camera Labs

  • Summary: The Lumix DMC-GF2 is Panasonic's second 'pocketable' compact to employ the Micro Four Thirds standard it co-developed with Olympus. Announced in November 2010, it's the successor to the popular Lumix GF1, and like that model packs a large sensor into a small body with a removeable lens mount.
  • Pros: Well implemented touch screen controls., Compact, light and fast., 1080i AVCHD video., Hot Shoe and EVF port., Excellent handling.
  • Cons: Duplication of controls can be confusing., Requires lens-based image stabilisation., Image quality/noise performance., Disappointing sequential shooting.

  • Summary: The GF2 sees Panasonic packing a lot of approachable creative control into a compact package, with one of the best-implemented touchscreens we've ever seen on a camera. It's fast and responsive with excellent raw image quality, but the JPEG output is disappointing.
  • Pros: Compact body with relatively large imaging sensor, Excellent build quality and handling, Easy-to-use interface that allows excellent level of camera control even to novices, Still one of the best-handling cameras in its class for enthusiasts, Well-implemented touch-screen controls, including touc...
  • Cons: Uninspiring JPEGs mean Raw conversion needed to get best results, Auto White Balance can be too blue, Sensor is starting to show its age (in terms of noise/dynamic range), Lack of flash exposure compensation means having to hope the camera gets it right, Using iAuto button as a Function button wo...

  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 might be the best Micro Four Thirds camera on the market, but it's not the best compact interchangeable-lens camera you can buy.
  • Pros: Compact body and lens. Simple to use. Good image quality. Minimal shutter lag. Fast autofocus. Variety of HD video recording formats. Responsive touch screen. Stereo audio recording.
  • Cons: Low-light performance isn't as good as some competitors. Image sensor is not true APS-C size. Proprietary USB port.

  • Conclusion: We really like this camera and are impressed by the versatility the touch-screen brings. The smaller and lighter design is great for those who want a camera that can be popped into a pocket, but with a more sophisticated performance.

  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 is a superb little camera: it is an immense improvement over the GF1, a camera that until just a few months ago was a worthy competitor in the compact system camera market.

Pocket Lint
15 December 2010
  • Conclusion: The GF2 gets a whole lot of things right: it’s small and light and can easily fit into the pocket. The touchscreen is very future thinking but you don’t have to use it if you don’t want to, meaning there’s always a backup button to press in most circumstances.
  • Pros: Small size, touchscreen, movie quality
  • Cons: No mode dial, 14mm kit lens bundle only, no viewfinder

  • Excerpt: Le Panasonic GF1 a été un beau succès : c'était le deuxième appareil compact micro 4/3, mais il avait le mérite d'avoir une autofocus très rapide (à défaut de la stabilisation de l'Olympus PEN E-P1) Le Panasonic GF2 vient prendre la relève sans changer fondamentalement la recette qui a fait le...
  • Pros: Compacité, Efficacité autofocus, Mode vidéo
  • Cons: Pas de stabilisation intégrée, Pas de viseur (viseur électronique en option), Hautes sensibilités en retrait par rapport aux capteurs APS-C
