Panasonic announced on Sunday two new Micro Four-Thirds cameras, the Lumix DMC-G2 and a less expensive Lumix G10. Both cameras are in Panasonic’s line of “smaller” digital cameras in comparison to D-SLR’s, going without a mirror box or a dedicated autofocus image sensor.
The DMC-G2 appears to be a successor to the DMC-G1 announced in late 2008 with some added features. The Lumix DMC-G2 still has a 12.1 megapixel sensor, movable LCD screen, is similar in size and has a rubber-coated body like its predecessor, but in this version has added in a touch screen and high-def video capture. According to Panasonic this marks the …”first interchangeable lens system camera with touch-control shooting.”
