Panasonic introduced the new Lumix DMC-G5, digital single lens mirrorless camera capable of taking high-quality images with real-to-life details through excellent resolution, image rendering and colour reproduction in a press conference recently. Lumix G5 is designed as an excellent choice for consumers looking for a mid-range DSLR.
The new DMC-G5 achieves even higher resolution with the advanced image processing engine driven on a new algorithm and faster response. The precision contrast AF system boasts high speed AF system 'Light Speed AF'. Consecutive shooting is also improved for 6fps in 16.05-megapixel full resolution.
Furthermore the camera takes advantage of the 16.05-megapixel live MOS sensor and venus engine, giving the DMC-G5 the capability to recording 1,920 x 1,080 50p (PAL) full HD video in AVCHD progressive with stereo sound.

"The G5 is truly a next step in Panasonic's G series mirrorless cameras and we are confident that consumers across the region will appreciate how versatile the G5 really is," commented Hitesh Ojha, deputy general manager – Digital Imaging, Panasonic, Marketing Middle East and Africa.
The external design of the camera has been developed with no compromising on grip, dial, coating — everything to detail. The 1,440,000-dot equivalent Live View Finder of approx. 1.4x (approx. 0.7x) with 100% field of view newly integrates eye sensor and it can be used with LCD at the same time as the new Touch Pad function. Level gauge is also newly adopted for precision framing.
The popular Creative Control increases its filter option to 14 for the enjoyment of artistic expression. In addition to multi-capable shooting assist function iA (Intelligent Auto) Plus mode, the Scene Guide is available for beginners to support learning photography with ease.
