The Panasonic G2 can record 720p HD video using the AVCHD Lite format and carries other superb specs such as a 12.1-inch LiveMOS sensor, Venus Engine HD II high-speed image processor, Dust Reduction System, Live View with super-fast contrast detect AF, electronic viewfinder with 202,000 pixels and ISO sensivity of 100-6400.
The 3-inch Touchscreen wide-viewing angle display that rotates 180 degrees from side to side and tilts 270 degrees up and down will get this camera noticed by consumers. The camera supports SD, SDHC and SDXC cards and comes in the colors of Blue, Red and Black. The Panasonic LUMIX G2 will come equipped as part of its kit, with the newly announced LUMIX G VARIO 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH/MEGA O.I.S. lens.
