Panasonic is set to upgrade its Lumix series by bringing in the all new Lumix GF5. The 12.1 megapixel camera refines the shooting capabilities of its predecessor GF3. The upgrade brings with it a slew of new features like live MOS image sensor and multi-process noise reduction. It also comes with the latest version of Panasonic’s Venus Engine.
Shooting 1080i full HD with 12800 ISO and 0.09s autofocus, it gives out vibrant pictures as well as videos. It also incorporates a 3-inch LCD touch screen on its back with 920K, doubling the resolution of the 469k dot GF3. It gives a smooth experience to the user.
There has been a stiff competition in the sphere of mirror less digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) competitors such as the Panasonic Lumix GH2 and Lumix GX1, the Pentax K-01, the Sony Alpha NEX-7, and the Olympus OM-D E-M5. With the coming of Lumix GF5, the competition is slated to get heated up.
Although there are a lot of similarities in GF5 and GF3, the main concern of users of GF3 terming it to be a lot plasticky has been taken care of by the company, thanks to an anodized metal body and a rubber handgrip. Panasonic has however not announced a release date or price for the GF5 yet.
