4.0 out of 5 stars Great little camera, 23 May 2011
This review is from: Panasonic Lumix GF2 Digital Camera with 14mm Lens - Black (Electronics)
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.
