chews up batteries, terrible customer service

Jay Davison, Amazon
27 December 2012
  • Summary: As many of the reviews have said, this camera is convenient, produces good quality photos, has the ability to shoot in RAW format, and offers many other features that make it a joy to travel with. However, there are two things you should know before buying it: it chews up batteries, and if you ever have to deal with Panasonic Customer Service, God help you.

It's a micro 4/3, don't expect even APS-C image quality

  • Summary: I bought this after so many rave reviews, it has pretty bad white balance for jpegs in medium to low light for still images. The raw images looked pretty good. It seems to have slow AF for lowlight. It may be good camera for shooting videos but this is a pretty ok camera for still images.

Great video, not so great stills but a good all around performer

EnsH "ensh", Amazon

  • Summary: I needed to do a small video project and the GH2 + 14-42mm seemed the best value. I decided to try it because I had good experience in the past with the Panasonic FZ series. My current camera is a DSLR (Pentax K-5). The good: - video looks is really excellent and it's much easier to use an EVF for this. It's no secret that the GH2 is highly rated amongst indie filmmakers, that's the best camera for that job under 3000$ beating even the Canon 7D and 5D mark II.

User Review

Lupti, DP Review
10 August 2011
  • Excerpt: At first, the GH2 is not a bad camera. It can take decent pics and video when the circumstances are ok. However I´m somehow disappointed by this camera, especially when comparing it to GH1. What I don´t like: Touchscreen: It´s annoying and useless. It´s often touched by accident and then the focus field is moved to somwhere where it shouldn´t be. Grip: Feals cheaper than GH1, still too plasticky for this price tag.

Decent camera but certainly not the best all round camera on the planet

Jay, Amazon
25 December 2010
  • Summary: Interesting review...the first one that claims the DMC-GH2 to be the best all round camera on the planet. In reality, I think it's a decent camera but far far far from the best. First off, the AF may be twice as fast as that on the GH1, but it pales in comparison to an advanced amateur or pro level SLR. Frankly, it is somewhat sluggish. Maybe it's good for a 4/3 camera, but that's about where it ends. Smaller, lighter camera - yes one of its good points.

Surely a great stills camera, but be wary of video capabilities

James D. Pearson, Amazon
9 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camera with the intention of using it as a film camera for small scale productions such as music videos and short films, and occasionally using it as a stills camera as well. After a fair bit of research into choices of lenses I decided that the Micro FourThirds mount offered the greatest amount of flexibility out of the main choices (the other being a Canon EF mount system) as well as the ability to adapt the lenses I already possessed from my previous...

GH2 vs FZ100?

DasUmmi, Amazon
2 December 2011
  • Summary: Als eigentlicher Fan von Brigekameras wollte ich auch irgendwann mal mit Tiefenschärfe und besserer Bildqualität fotografieren. So gönnte ich mir irgendwann mal eine rote Panasonic GH1 mit dem14-140 mm Bundle, welche nach einem Defekt auf Garantie in meine jetztige schwarze GH2 gewandelt wurde. Das Objektiv blieb das alte. Außerdem habe ich noch eine FZ100, welche ich inzwischen öfters als die GH2 nutze.

  • Excerpt: Una absoluta MIERDA. Siento utilizar tan escatológico adjetivo, pero es que... Soy de los afortunados que recibieron una GH2 hace ya casi un mes. Eso me obligaría a alabarla, bendecirla, exaltarla: Una MIERDA. He tenido tiempo de probarla. El video, mientras no utiilices el modo entrelazado, es francamente bueno; a qué negarlo. La imagen.... Pero.... Eso, "pero". Una absoluta castaña. Imágenes tan "curradas" en ISO 160, que resultan blandas e irreales.

Si a alguien le ha pasado, que lo diga... o que calle p

Javier Rey Gonzalez, quesabesde.com

  • Summary: Bueno, esto se está convirtiendo en algo que no me gusta nada. Parece que me he empeñado en desprestigiar una marca a la que, hasta ahora, tan solo me ha dado satisfacciones: video, mesa de mezclas y TV incluídas.Bueno, y hasta la pequeña TZ7. Lo que voy a comentar ahora no es para reírse, aunque yo utilice ese tono, a veces, para romper tensiones... y mala de esa acumulada. Llevo dedicado a la fotografía digital desde sus comienzos: inefable Ixus; fantástica D30, etc.
