David, Saltcoats Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
For the beginner, this is a very good starting camera and the Manual is very simple to use.
Bad points:
The only bad point of the design is the position of the lens release button. When holding the camera ready to take a picture, the button can be accidently pressed.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The rubber feel to the body makes it secure to hold. The features are good although i havnt tried most of them yet. Really like the touch screan. I feel that the camera has alot more to offer than i have experience so far. Will just take me a little time to get to grips with what it can do and im justing starting out in photography.
Bad points:
None so far

Raymond, Sutton Coldfield Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Has the right feel when shooting photos, not too heavy or too light. Image stabaliser works really well. The large moveable screen helps when taking awkward shots, tough screen is very helpful as well.
Bad points:
A lot to learn, but then I am fairly new to this type of camera. Takes a bit of getting used to the manual.

Wilson,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good all-round camera with plenty of automatic and manual features for the point & shooter to the keen amateur. Touchscreen is useful if required or you can use the buttons instead. Too expensive when first released but a bargain at current prices.
Bad points:
Limited to 720p video

Manufacturer's Description

UMIX G Micro System Digital Camera G2 – Touch-screen Operation with Free-angle LCD & Creative Functions for Both Photos & Movies

The DMC-G2 features a touch-screen operation with 3.0-inch free-angle LCD featuring Full-time Live View and high-speed Contrast AF System. While shooting, auto focus can be set at the desired part of the frame by simply touching the subject to activate the AF in both photo and movie recording. In manual operation, aperture and shutter speed can be set to the desired value by moving the slider. While playing back, you can quickly select an image to view by scrolling images. The DMC-G2 has a 1,440,000-dot equivalent LVF (Live View Finder), too.
The 4/3-type 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor is advantageous for photo and movie recording with its high S/N, thanks to a circuit structure that is unaffected by the noise generated in each of the circuits. The Intelligent Resolution Technology, incorporated in the Venus Engine HD II, determines the subject’s contours and colour edges, and emphasizes them during image processing. This lets you capture stunning images with details. The Dust Reduction System helps maintain image quality by placing a Supersonic Wave Filter in front of the sensor.
My Colour Mode makes it easy to customize colour effects to match your mood for both photos and movies. In still image recording, the Peripheral Defocus Mode automatically adjusts the focus to match the AF area you positioned while gently defocusing the foreground and background to emphasize the subject. In movie recording, the Motion Picture P Mode makes adjustment the aperture easily. The iA Mode, featuring Face Recognition function, serves as a combination of functions that makes it easy for anyone to get beautiful photos and movies.
The DMC-G2 can record HD movie of 720P in AVCHD Lite with high sound quality of Dolby Digital Creator. Just press the Motion Picture Button, and shooting begins. The iA Mode can also be activated in movie recording. Still image recording is available during movie recording and can cut out a still image after shooting thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology. When the DMC-G2 is connected to a Panasonic VIERA TV via an optional mini HDMI cable, the TV’s remote control unit can be used to enjoy playing back with greater convenience.
Suitable for a wide range of scenes from portrait to landscape photography, the LUMIX G VARIO 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH./MEGA O.I.S. offers a zoom range of 28-84mm (35mm equivalent) while featuring its compact size and light weight. It incorporates Panasonic’s MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), which makes it easy to shoot clear shots even in low-light situations without hand-shake blur. When the lens is mounted on the DMC-G2, you can use the contrast AF system, which is implemented in the DMC-G2 to offer a variety of convenient functions.
