The G5 Triple Threat: 16 Megapixel Sensor - Venus Engine - Spot-on Colors
VE

  • The 16.05-megapixel Live MOS Sensor features Panasonic's original pixel-mix technology, designed exclusively to minimize noise generation. The fine wiring results in high resolution and quick processing.
  • A redesigned Venus Engine produces clear, crisp photo and video images. Its MNR (Multi-process Noise Reduction) quickly detects brightness in every part of a shot and its HDR (High Dynamic Range) allows for several pictures taken at different exposure levels to turn into a single composite picture that eliminates over-or-under-exposure. The 3DNR reduces rough edges.
  • Intelligent Resolution technology detects outlines, intricate texture, and gradation thus precisely processing pixel by pixel to render true-to-life color reproduction that is spot-on.

LightSpeed Auto-Focus Helps you Never Miss a Shot
G
Contrast AF provides higher accuracy while Light Speed AF locks on to fast moving objects.
LS

With contrast AF (Auto Focus) the image sensor controls your focus giving you a greater range to create your crisp, clear images. This is great for recording fast moving subjects like your little leaguer, migrating birds, or your best friend who decided to bungee jump. Contrast AF boasts higher accuracy, especially when shooting with a bright lens. And since you have a full-area AF touch, you select your desired field of vision. Additionally, Light Speed AF quickly locks onto a subject, making it possible to capture even fast moving subjects like your son, the dirt bike rider.

Latest Micro Four Thirds Mirrorless Technology - Smaller Camera Systems Deliver Big Results
4-3

Based on the Micro Four-Thirds system, Panasonic eliminates the bulky mirror box and pentaprism found in conventional DSLRs without compromising sensor or optical performance. Camera bodies and lenses are now dramatically smaller and lighter than traditional SLRs, making them more portable so you can take them with you virtually anywhere.

Have the Magic Touch? Get More Creative with G5’s LCD Screen

The 920K-dot high-resolution LCD rotates 180° to the side and tilts 270° up and down offers approx. 100% of field of view. This LCD enables dynamic, artistic framing with high-angle shots and low-angle shots. The time lag of image output is minimized by approximately 18% compared with the predecessor DMC-G3 making it easier to monitor the fast-moving subject.

Plus, high-precision touch display immediately lets you to set focus to the subject by just touching it on the screen and you can even release the shutter.

The Level Gauge lets the camera detect the horizontal / vertical angle of view with its internal level working with the acceleration sensor. Photos shot in a portrait aspect will be automatically displayed vertically whatever lens is used.

Show off your Creative Side
Intelligent Auto

The Creative Control mode has been upgraded in the G5 with 14 creative filters that let you tell your photographic story. Choose from Soft Focus to Dynamic Monochrome to One Point Color or from the original filters like Expressive and Retro. With the new GUI and menu tabs, switching filter effect is extremely easy and is possible to preview via the Live View Switching. If you can't decide, your G5 will recommend the one that bet fits your scene in iA (Intelligent Auto) or iA Plus mode. While you're in iA Plus, adjust your defocusing area in the background, exposure, and white balance.

New to Advanced Cameras? Scene Guide Shows You Off, Pro-style
SS

If you're just learning how to maneuver the interchangeable lens system, don't worry. The G5's Scene Guide will make you look like a photography expert as you pick and choose from 23 sample pictures - all taken by professional photographers. Simply select the shot that best suits your situation. Want city lights captured? Check. Want rippling waves detailed? Check. And naturally, you'll want to go for the Romantic Sunset Glow. This feature will also direct you with how-to pointers on shooting, technical advice, and recommended interchangeable lens options for your scene portfolio giving you a better understanding along the way as you learn new photographic techniques.

HD

Not only does the LUMIX G5 produce stunning still images, it also records high quality video in full-HD and with DolbyDigital Stereo sound, in MPEG-4, AVCHD Progressive. Touch AF lets you enjoy professional-grade focusing allowing you to shift gears while shooting your movie. AF Tracking easily locks a subject into focus, even when it moves. The Extra Tele Conversion function extends your zoom to 4.8x and a special Video Record button lets you instantly and simultaneously record videos while shooting photographs and conversely, take photos while recording. Install the included PHOTOfunSTUDIO 8.2 PE on your PC, and you are set to turn your movie into your story.

Style Name: With 14-42mm Lens Verified Purchase
I have a few friends with DSLR and micro-4/3 cameras and I was told to look at micro-4/3 due to it's lower cost of entry and portability. In the short term I wanted a new camera to take on my honeymoon, but my long term goal was to improve my photography skills beyond a compact point and shoot.

After much research I decided between the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and Panasonic DMC-G5KK. While I feel the Olympus is a better camera on paper, I didn't feel the cost differential was justified in my case. Micro-4/3 is still a relatively new platform, and I think the cameras will improve quite a bit in the next couple of years. Perhaps in that time I'll upgrade to a camera with a more rugged body and in body stabilization. FWIW, I purchased the DMC-G5 ($699), which included the 14-42mm zoom lens, along with the Lumix 20mm f/1.7 pancake lens ($332).

The combo is low profile and lightweight due to the pancake lens. I purchased the Crumpler "4 million dollar home" camera bag, which comfortably fits the G5, 20mm pancake, 14-42 mm kit lens, spare battery, charger, snackbar, and hand cleanser (a nice to have on vacation). I highly recommend this to anyone look at the G5 or other similarly sized micro-4/3s.

The 20mm pancake shoots amazing pictures with the G5. Landscapes and interiors look great, but portraits are amazing! I was overall quite impressed with photos I took on my vacation, the majority of which I used intelligent auto since I didn't have the time to learn about the camera. I would say I took 90% of my photos using the pancake since it was more convenient and much faster. I only used the zoom lens when I couldn't zoom with my feet.

Style Name: With 14-42mm Lens Verified Purchase
To start with I have both the Panasonic GF5 and the G5 and I also shoot Nikon digital cameras. I've been very happy with the Panasonic G5 and M43 system. Many of the little things that bothered me with the GF5 like AF accuracy, AF hunting when recording videos, limited number of customizable function buttons, zoom lens blocking flash coverage at wide angle focal lengths, and no 1080p/60fps videos are resolved with the G5. Plus the G5 is 16MP vs the GF5 only being 12MP. The G5 also has features which my much more expensive Nikon doesn't have like an articulating touch screen and the ability to shoot 1080p/60fps videos.

What I love about the G5:

1. The G5 has a nice balance of buttons and customization which meets the needs of both novices and those wanting more control of their camera. For people purchasing a DSLR/DSLM camera for the time it probably won't feel as overwhelming as some DSLR's would. While it doesn't have the number of buttons as my Nikon DSLR with the use of the "Q Menu" I can get to more of what I want quicker than with my DSLR. The "Q Menu" allows you to create your personalized mini menu for quick access for those settings you adjust the most. In addition there are function buttons on the camera and touch screen which can be customized for the features you use all the time.

2. The articulating screen was one of the main selling points for me when purchasing the G5. The articulating screen is great when photographing with the camera above your head and near to the ground. I actually use it almost all the time when I photograph. You are steadier when you shoot with your hands and camera at your chest versus held up to your eye. If you like shooting candids or documentary of people you can get better shots if the camera is at your chest or waist level.

Style Name: With 14-42mm Lens Verified Purchase
I was a 35mm film Minolta owner for a long time, then Nikon (FM/FE), then more recently D50/D40/D60. I've had Panasonic FZ28/35 and found the sensor size and quality wanting. I looked at the Sony Alpha but found the a37 lacking a few things I wanted and the A57 too large/heavy. Earlier this year I had a Nikon D5100. Great camera. But I was looking for something smaller and lighter. The M 4/3 (MFT) platform is a clear winner. So much so that I no longer own the D5100. And it feels great to use the DMC-G5. I'm excited about shooting again!

Technically, the sensor on the DMC-G5 is a very strong performer. The UI gives you hints when you need them (like a flashing icon to push in and rotate the control wheel when you have overridden the standard exposure (EV) controls). The focus is among the fastest of any camera I've ever used. I really like the level indicators that appear in the viewfinder to let you know you are square to horizontal or vertical.

Overall the camera feels great in the hands and it is very light and yet not too small. So far I don't feel like there is any feature that I would use that is missing. I did sell the 14-42mm kit lens and put on an older Panasonic 14-45mm lens and the results are very solid.

The EVF is adequate. I would not use a MFT camera that did not have a viewfinder. LCDs are still hopeless in strong sunlight. I've found the EVF in this camera so good that most of the time I'm shooting with LCD folded in and turned off. It's that good. (And means I get more shots on one battery charge. And getting a second battery is recommended for this any any camera with an EVF.)

The ONLY thing that bugs me about this camera, and it's a nit, is the operation of the power switch.
