The LUMIX G5 is one of the newest compact system (DSLM) cameras from Panasonic, ensuring clear, crisp images in both photo and video recording with a newly integrated 16.05-megapixel Live MOS sensor and redesigned Venus Engine. Featuring a compact, light-weight body with built-in flash, the LUMIX G5 boasts ultra-high mobility while offering users a powerful camera performance which achieves spectacular image quality, realizing true-to-life photo details through excellent resolution, image rendering, and color production.
Portrays Detailed, Lifelike Images The 16.05-megapixel Live MOS Sensor features Panasonic’s original pixel mix technology. The current process is designed exclusively for the digital Live MOS sensor to minimize noise generation. The fine wiring around the photodiode realizes high aperture ratio, which results in high resolution and an excellent S/N ratio while the high performance transistor encourages high speed signal processing.
Greater Beauty, Higher Speed, and less Power Consumption The Venus Engine for DMC-G5 features exceptionally advanced signal processing capabilities to render clear, crisp images in both photo and video recording. Also, the four CPUs excel in processing large amounts of digital signals at high speed for an advanced noise reduction system, 1920 x 1080 full HD progressive video recording, and high speed burst shooting.
Rich Gradation and wide Contrast Range Several still images consecutively shot at different exposure levels are overlaid to produce a single composite picture without whiteout (over-exposure) or blackout (under-exposure).
Huge Performance from Ultra-Compact Lenses The DMC-G5 lets you use the versatile lineup of LUMIX G / LEICA DG lenses based on the Micro Four Thirds System standard. These lenses are revolutionary, small, and lightweight. Yet image quality is remarkably high, thanks to a fusion of advanced optical technologies and industry-leading digital technologies. The LUMIX G renders superb images across a broad range of shooting situations, from wide-angle to telephoto.
H-FS014042 Lens Included Included with purchase of the DMC-G5K camera is the H-FS014042 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 Micro Four Thirds lens. Continuous AF/AE function that supports both photos and movies. You'll find a minimum focus distance of 30cm over the entire zoom range, along with contrast AF system support, circular aperture diaphragm, and multi-coated lens elements which minimize ghosts and flare. The LUMIX G5 is compatible with all G Series interchangeable lenses to suit your studio and field photography needs.
High-speed AF System The DMC-G5 features high speed AF system “Light Speed AF” which is achieved by reducing the detection time for focusing by doubling the drive speed of the sensor and the lens from 60 fps to 120 fps*. The advanced contrast AF system in the DMC-G5 exceeds other high-end DSLRs, with phase-difference AF, in accuracy and speed.
