Compact Cameras


Press Release:
The next great Lumix G camera, Lumix GF2, has arrived in a store near you.

Already awarded 5 magazine awards since announced in November, the GF2 is the smallest and lightest system camera from Panasonic, boosting DSLR like photo performance and Full HD movies with stereo sound.

At the end of last year we saw that the total changeable lens (DSLR + CSC) market was up 22.8% in December 2010 vs. December 2009. Panasonic believe that this growth has come from a dramatic increase in consumer demand for creative and high quality photos.

1 in 4 changeable lens cameras sold in December came from the new breed of Compact System Cameras (CSC), as product and lens ranges in this developing format grew. CSC actually grew an impressive 194% vs. the previous year. This significant shift can be put down to the smaller size and easier to use attributes of a CSC compared to a DSLR camera - Anyone who enjoys photography can now take professional looking photos without hassle.

The good news for Panasonic is that in December 2010 over 1 in 10 of all changeable lens cameras sold were from the Panasonic Lumix G system camera range, making it the best selling CSC range in Christmas 2010. Panasonic is very proud to hold 11.3% market share with the DMC-G2 as its best selling model.

To prove that anyone can take creative shots look out for the new GF2 in a store near you.

I like the way Panasonic have taken a radically different approach to cameras from the traditional makers like Nikon, Canon and Pentax.

My GF1 will do most things I want with minimum effort yet still provide top class results, a consumer approach to cameras.

My Pentax K5 is more versatile but is a great deal more trouble to lug around and use. It also has better IQ than the GF1 (as it should), better than most would ever need.

I am ashamed to say my GF1 with 20mm and 14-140mm, gets used much more than the K5 - if only because with the tiny 20mm f1.7 and small body, it is always with me.

Last week I became 60 yrs young, and to be quite honest I'm sick and tired of carrying my 5D and L lenses, thats why I now use Panasonic G2 & Gf1 +20mm, thats a sharp lens. The 60x40cm prints on my walls are spectacular 12mp is more than enough.....

Sounds good, but I wonder, how do you get on with (apparently) no focussing viewfinder?.....Are there not problems with holding a camera steady out in front of you using just the screen on the back for framing/focussing; particularly with the zoom lens in operation?
