Editor's Review

Showcased in a pre-release event in Sonoma, the G5 replaces the G3 as Panasonic's high-end mirrorless camera. With new "light speed" autofocus, a rebuilt 16 megapixel MOS sensor, 1080/60p HD video at a whopping 28mbps bitrate, and 3.7fps continuous burst with autofocus tracking (6fps single focus), the G5 is aimed squarely to compete with the likes of Olympus' E-M5. We got to handle the G5 and came away impressed with both the autofocus speed and new, more comfortable ergonomics. Other, smaller upgrades to the G3 include a zoom lever on the camera body (to operate power zooms one-handed), a 3-inch swivel touchscreen, an eye sensor to switch power to the viewfinder, and a level gauge. The screen does have tap to focus, but more often than not this meant our nose chose our subject for us. Reviews are overwhelmingly positive, noting excellent image quality, autofocus, and handling. This is a great choice for micro 4/3s users out there, or indeed anyone looking for compact performance.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 Reviews

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

Panasonic makes cameras that provide both a longer zoom range and image stabilization at a cost that's relatively cheap. Without a doubt, this helps the Panasonic digital cameras fulfill the demands of photographers who desire versatility in a small package. Providing something for amateurs and serious enthusiasts at the same time, Panasonic has a wide range of digital cameras, from ultra compacts to mirrorless cameras. They are hard to compare as each camera has its own unique attributes and traits.

Panasonic cameras are great for consumers who enjoy using automatic modes. The camera will automatically pick the perfect scene mode for a given subject with the iAuto feature, which is standard for close to all Panasonic cameras currently developed. This feature, combined with image stabilization will really help beginners take photos that look great.

By providing users with easy access to settings, reviews are correct in pointing out that Panasonic cameras are created for maximum ease of use. If you opt for a Panasonic camera, you'll discover that it possesses an LCD screen, an optical zoom lens which is very versatile, and is both compact and very lightweight.

The Panasonic Lumix ZS20 is one of the many notably excellent choices among Panasonic cameras. This Panasonic digital camera includes a 20x optical zoom lens, a GPS tracker, and image stabilization to ensure steady shots even at the long end of the zoom range. Panasonic has included manual modes but the automatic modes and iAuto mode make the camera a perfect choice for amateurs as well. Although the image quality is not the best on the market, it still holds its own in regards to many competitors and that in combination with its other features makes it a great deal.
