  • Summary: The GH2 is the best G-series camera to date, and the improvements that Panasonic has made compared to the GH1 and G2, especially regarding AF performance and movie shooting, are meaningful and very welcome.

Review: Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH2

Wired
2 June 2011
  • Excerpt: The 16.05-megapixel Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH2 is as much for videos as it is for stills. Indeed, the first things you’ll notice are the stereo microphone on top and the shiny red button with a movie camera icon next to it that almost implores you to press it and see what happens.
  • Pros: Blazing autofocus. Faster bit rates for better HD video quality. Touchscreen tracking lets you pull focus in video using just your pinkie. Superb mic for outdoor shooting.
  • Cons: Feature-laden to the point of feeling bloated. Pricey.

Camera Labs
1 February 2011
  • Summary: Panasonic has taken the already capable Lumix GH1, increased its sensor resolution by one third, accelerated the focusing both for stills and movies, added a touch-screen display, widened the electronic viewfinder, sped-up continuous shooting, and enhanced the movie recording options.
  • Pros: High quality movies with continuous and quiet AF., Good quality stills - best from Micro Four Thirds to date., Very fast autofocus for stills and movies., Articulated, high res touch-screen display and superb finder., Small and light, but good ergonomics and customisation.
  • Cons: Slow continuous shooting when continuous AF is enabled., Live view not available during continuous bursts above 3fps., Noisier images than good APS-C models at high sensitivities., Traditional DSLRs better for low light or fast action photography.
