Panasonic Lumix DMG-G2, Premium Features Warranted Premium Price
Another entry-level device in the Micro Four Thirds arena has entered the ring and it’s from Panasonic; the new Lumix DMC-G2—a new shooter with some of the most familiar performance from the device of its kind but this time around, it comes with enhancements—the most is the three-inch articulating touchscreen display that its going to tag along with its release.
Owners of the said device are given the power to control some of the camera’s aspect—with a touch; perhaps, one of the most useful thing about this device is the tap-to-focus augmentation feature of the camera, keeping focus on whatever the user may have tapped on the screen, even when it moves around. But, a full suite of physical buttons as well and dials still awaits the control of the fingers of the users, giving the power as well to tweak some settings of the camera without even fumbling over the menu.
Further, what makes this camera noticeable is the fact that it has a performance that is similar to that of Panasonic’s budget-minded DMC-G10 which comes with a price tag of $200 that is cheaper than the G2’s MSRP of $799 per unit but lacks the 720p video and touchscreen peripherals in general.
