Good points:
Abosolutley brilliant! I am new to photography but ive always loved it. I just recently purchased this camera but i was hesitant because of the bad reviews. I was right to buy this dslr camera as it is the best camera by far ive ever had (and thats saying something!) and its a great value for money. Its easy to use because of the screen adjustments and the touch screen and very light. Ive taken it everywhere with me as its easy and a very handy travel size, i hope to take it on holiday to get some beautiful snaps! Great buy, no regrets!:)

Gina, Watford Point & shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
My husband bought this for my birthday and I really like the features on the camera. It is quiet easy to you once you get used to it. The hardest thing I found getting used to was if you wanted to zoom in, you do it manually rather than pressing a button, bit once I got used to it, it was fine. I now take my camera everywhere now and I love it.

Manufacturer's Description

LUMIX 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.
