Panasonic : Lumix GH2
Panasonic Launches Goodies For The Micro 4/3s Faithful
And in news coming from the micro 4/3s side of the photography world, giants Panasonic have unveiled their new Lumix GH2, the next iteration of their G series cameras. From what the numbers say, it looks like the GH2 is a no-brainer upgrade from it’s predecessor. With a 16MP Live MOS sensor, SDXC support, 23 point AF tracking, ISO that reaches 12800, swivel LCD and 1080p video recording, the GH2 provides incredible bang for your buck
The GH2 has yet another ace up it’s sleeve in the form of a refined image processing engine and sensor, allowing the GH2 to take 3D photos with the 3D lens we posted about a few months back. With the new 3D lens, the H-FT102, stereo images from both the left and right lens are processed with the 3D imaging system and are viewable on a 3D ready Viera television. Your vacation shots will never be boring again!
The other 2 lenses Panasonic are launching are the 14mm f2.5 which has that title of the lightest single focal length lens in the Lumix G series, and the Lumix G Vario 100-300mm f4-5.6 for the aspiring sports photographer or all around perv.
The 3 lenses will retail at $249.95 (RM772) for the 3D lens, US$399.95 (RM1240) for the 14/2.5 and US$599.95 (RM1860) for the 100-300mm super telephoto.
The GH2 will ship in early December with a price of US$899.95 (RM2790) body only, US$999.95 (RM3100) for the 14-42mm bundle and US$1499.95 (RM4651) for the 14-140mm bundle.
