Manufacturer's Description

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 Digital Camera

The DMC-GF2 is the world's smallest* and lightest* digital interchangeable lens camera with built-in flash, featuring a touch-screen operation. While shooting, you can operate the auto focus and shutter release at the same time with just a touch. While playing back, you can quickly select a picture to view by ‘scrolling’ through images. In the iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode, 7 detection functions work automatically and simultaneously to optimize your settings, making it easier than ever to take beautiful images every time.

*For an interchangeable lens system camera with a built-in flash as of 4th November 2010.

Live MOS Sensor

The 4/3-type 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor offers the best of both worlds – the superior image quality of a CCD sensor, and the lower power consumption of a CMOS sensor. The Venus Engine FHD features advanced signal processing capabilities in both photo and movie recording. With the advanced noise reduction system, you can capture beautiful images even when shooting at high ISO sensitivity levels. The Intelligent Resolution technology is another feature of the Venus Engine FHD. The DMC-GF2 also features a fast and accurate contrast AF system.

HD Movie Quality

The DMC-GF2 can record full-HD 1920 x 1080 movies in AVCHD format with the high sound quality of Dolby® Digital Stereo Creator. A dedicated button on the top panel lets you instantly start recording movies without having to make any extra settings. The popular iA Mode is available in motion image recording. Touch AF is also available in movie recording and lets you enjoy total focusing control. The DMC-GF2 can save a frame of movie as photo during playback. With the Video Divide function, you can divide a single video into two parts using only the camera.

Range of Preset Modes -- Take Creative Control

The DMC-GF2 features the My Color Mode with a total of 8 preset modes, including the Cinema Mode which gives cinema-like gradation. In iA Mode and the My Color Mode, the range of defocus can be adjusted by just moving the slider with your finger. The DMC-GF2 provides a total of 17 Scene Modes, and many of these can be used when shooting movies too. With the Full-time Live View function, you can see how settings will affect the images before you shoot, which makes it easier to capture the exact mood or atmosphere desired.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful little camera 13 Feb 2011
By Flikmy
Colour Name:Black|Size Name:14mm & 14-42mm Lenses
I'm used to shooting with my Nikon D40. Got this a couple of weeks ago and getting familiarised with it. Took it out for a full day with the 14mm prime and my Nikon. I didn't actually need to take my Nikon out of the bag as the GF2 served most of what I needed to (except when its battery died at the end of the day).

The touch screen will split opinions, some will like it, some won't. I personally am warming up to it, though I still find buttons on a DSLR much more convenient. The ability to pick the Auto focusing points on the screen does come useful.

What is wonderful about this camera is that it stays in my jacket pocket (with the 14mm pancake) and I don't need to carry a bag to bring a camera with me.

By Mr. P. J. R. LEWIS TOP 500 REVIEWER
Colour Name:Black|Size Name:14mm Lens
Ive owned my GF1 for nearly a year and depending on the speed and sensitivity of SD card used it produces beautifull results.

The reason i am writing a review on the newer GF2 is because not that i wanted to change my brilliant GF1 but because i wanted the pin sharp 14mm lens.

The lens retails for close to 160 and i was always being outbid on ebay when i was after one.

Digigood that highly respected American dealer with a base here in the Uk was selling a GF2 in Red with that 14mm lens for a very respectable 265 so i had in effect a spare brand new camera body for 100 which was an offer i couldnot turn down.

The GF2 has been designed principally for those wanting to upgrade from a quality compact camera to a camera if used well can equal that of certain DSLR units.

The GF2 is indeed smaller than the GF1 it replaces and has been given a very clever touch screen that in use makes life a lot easier than the GF1.

You can take 1080 Full HD video with this camera and on comparission with my GF1 there is a clear step up in quality which also includes stereo sound.

Describing the benefits of using this touchscreen is rather difficult in practice, you actually have to use it to see how rewarding the GF2 can be in daily use.

Some have also complained that the screen is slow to respond to the users commands but i have found no such issues, and if you find the screen a bit gimmicky (HIGHLY UNLIKELY)then there are the usual touch sensitive joggle controls on the back of the camera but unlike its larger brother the GF1 the manual controls have been simplified.

For me the new Touchscreen is a very clever functional idea that both experienced and less experienced photographer will find most useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gf2 Little Beauty 9 Mar 2011
Colour Name:Black|Size Name:14mm & 14-42mm Lenses
Bought this little beauty after reviewing non stop on the Internet for two weeks. Couldn't make up my mind between Canon g12, G2 or the Gf2. Just having sold my Nikon reflex with all the big lenses etc, wanted quality with portability. I also have Canon point and shoot and although very portable I wanted something better.
G2, great but no real benefit on GF2 except bigger and video not full HD. Canon G12 very nice but wanted the option to swap lenses, hence Gf2.
So far can't fault my choice. I like the touch screen, having used an I Pad and I Phone. Picture quality really good. Pictures of our winter garden, wonderful. Grandchildren come out perfectly. To be honest picture quality between my old Nikon and GF2 minimal, but I am not a professional, by a long way.
All I can say is camera suits my needs perfectly. What I need now is the 80mm to 200 mm lens, which I shall order shortly.
The build quality of the camera is very solid and everything is of a high quality.
Very happy with my purchase, five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a camera! 7 Oct 2011
By Costas
Colour Name:Black|Size Name:14-42mm Lens
It exactly as I wanted it to be. Compact, professional (or semi- if you prefer), with excellent photo and video quality. I particularly liked the sharp images and the way the sensor handles the shadows on a sunny outdoor photo. I chose it over the GF3, although I knew the touch screen isn't as sensitive, because it has more buttons for direct control and it is easier to hold.If you do not want to buy an expensive bulky DSLR, go for the GF2!Prices have fallen because of the newer model.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little camera 23 May 2011
Colour Name:Black|Size Name:14mm Lens
I bought this camera because I wanted a camera that I could take around more easily than the SLR camera I had. I saw a friend who had this camera and looked into other cameras of this type. I think the main choice was between this and the sony nex-5. After reading most reviews it seemed to be the case that even with a smaller sensor this generally gets better shots.
I have had this camera a week and would say the build of this camera is really good. The menus are really easy to get around and it isn't complicated.
The pros of the GF2 are: easy to take around, very quick in auto mode, has a zoom in mode automatically when on manual focus, amazing quality snaps - not much different from my nikon d80, separate buttons for video and snaps so don't have to go through a menu for that, has an HDMI socket on the side, great flash.
The cons are: no viewfinder (but you can buy one), not so responsive in low light to auto focus, have to reconvert video at highest quality when you put it to the computer.

Colour Name:Black|Size Name:14mm & 14-42mm Lenses
I'm an amateur photographer, usually shoot on an EOS 30D with 14-40L lens or 70-200L. Have done a few weddings and understand my kit, but am no pro.

I was looking for a replacement compact camera when my IXUS died. I honestly never like the IXUS. We bought it after our first daughter was born and it was just too slow to catch the moment particularly indoors - I hate full frontal flash with stark contrast, so usually get my Speedlite out and use the catchlight or bounce with the 30D for anything indoors. So when I went looking, I wanted something that could keep up with our 3 year old daughter. Something with a really fast autofocus, no shutter lag, relatively decent aperture and usable ISO800 performance that I could take anywhere, use quickly, along with a good movie mode for the new baby on the way.

I was looking at the S95 and the LX5. But then I saw the GF2. I read about it. It was more expensive, but I liked the fact the sensor was bigger than the compacts and with the pancake 14mm f/2.5 lens figured it would force me into using the camera more than being lazy with a point and shoot zoom that I always used at the wide angle lens anyway.

So then I went to the shop to try it. Man was it fast! I could not believe both how fast it was at autofocus and how instantaneous the shutter was (with a simulated SLR noise as there's no internal shutter - the sensor is sitting right there under the lens mount). I tried it against the LX5 and the S95, the LX5 seemed the most responsive - it was much better than my old Ixus... but not as fast as the GF2 - it really feels pretty much as responsive as my 30D - bear in mind that's a digital contrast based system on the GF2 compared to the normal operation of my 30D I am still somewhat taken aback.
