Panasonic Thinks Small (and Light) with New GF2 Digital Camera

Paul Lilly

Panasonic on Thursday introduced its new Lumix DMC-GF2, the company's smallest and lightest digital interchangeable lens system camera (with flash) yet.

"The Lumix GF2 is key in the Panasonic DSL Micro line-up, as it's the smallest and lightest model we offer, while still offering superb image quality, which our consumers have come to expect from Lumix. Compared to the GF1, its predecessor, the GF2 has been reduced approximately 19% in size and approximately 7% in weight yet is still retains its signature built-in flash," said Darin Pepple, Senior Product Manager, Imaging, Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company. "We expect the Lumix GF2 to be an attractive model for consumers who want to step up to a more powerful camera that is easy to use, and a camera that is 'future-proof' with its 3D capabilities."

The GF2 uses lenses from the Micro Four Thirds standard, as well as Panny's new 3D interchangeable lens. It has a 12.1MP sensor, Full HD movie mode, 3-inch rear touchscreen, and an ISO range of 100-64000.

Look for the GF2 to ship in January 2011 with pricing info to be announced a month prior.
