Panasonic Lumix GH2 – the natural evolution of digital video and still cameras
20 June 2011
Conclusion: If you’re a photographer that is also into videography or have your own Youtube show (a lot of people are starting up these days), this is the perfect camera to start with if you want everything to look professional from the get go without spending a ton of money.
Summary: There’s no avoiding the fact that the GH2 is going to cost a fair wedge of cash: with the 14-140mm lens it’s anywhere between £1120 and £1350. Take that lens out of the equation, however, and the 14-42mm kit price is around £760 – which certainly provides a wider range of options for purchasers.
Pros: Current best contrast-detection-based AF speed of any camera, impressive image quality, movie quality
Cons: 2.5mm mic jack (3.5mm preferred), plasticy finish, image processing from ISO 1600 still leaves detail to be desired
Excerpt: By Branko Miletic It’s not just the interchangeable lenses that make its new Lumix GH2 prosumer (or hybrid if you like) snapper a hot ticket - the new CMOS senor and improved autofocus speeds help, too.
Pros: top notch video quality; ergonomic grip; super fast autofocus
Cons: more suited for video than stills; a bit expensive
Summary: La Panasonic Lumix GH2 è una fotocamera reflex digitale con sensore Live Mos da 16 megapixel, schermo LCD da 3 pollici, sistema di messa a fuoco a 23 punti, sensibilità da ISO 160 ad ISO 12.800, compatibile con ottiche tridimensionali
Conclusion: Die GH2 bietet die beste Videoqualität aller derzeit (12/2010) verfügbaren Video-DSLRs und dies bei einer Sensorgröße die optimal für Filmlook-Effekte (gestaffelte Schärfentiefe) geeignet ist.
