Panasonic officially introduced Micro Four Thirds Lumix G5

The camera uses 16.05 megapixel sensor, like its predecessor G3. However, it has newer image processing system, named Venus Engine VII FHD, helping handle image faster with low noise, 18% faster running than previous generation. Model G5 has a touch screen, you can touch to focus feature when filming and photographing, electronic viewfinder (EVF) with 1.44 million pixels, the rear screen has a resolution of 921,000 pixels and can be rotated 180 degrees. The camera can record Full-HD video at 60fps speed with MP4 or AVCHD format option, 6fps continuous shooting. G5 will appear with more kit options with white, black and silver colors. Lumix G5 has not had official price and selling time, but some rumors said that the camera will cost between $ 736-1080.

Panasonic mentioned much about the ability to reduce noise of G5 on newspaper. In addition to the new image processor, G5 is also equipped with noise reduction system (3D Noise Reduction - 3DNR), which can automatically smooth the image, both inside and at the edge, then adjust the strength of noise reduction feature (increasing in the smooth area, reducing the image edge) to keep as much as possible the details of object.  Multi-process NR feature determines the brightness of each region on the image, then reduce noise through several stages.

G5 uses auto focus system according to contrast, so adjust the lens to focus is performed by the sensor. Panasonic said that the contrast AF is better than phase AF (usually found on DSLRs), especially used with big lens (small f parameter) for higher accuracy. Besides the touch-focus mode on touch screen, Light Speed ​ ​AF on G5 may quickly lock the object even it moves at rapid speed.

Another new point of G5 is the lever located near the shooting button. This lever controls lens focus (when used with Electric Power Zoom H-PS14042 or H-PS45175), aperture and light compensation (in Manual mode) or to zoom in, zoom out images when review. The electronic viewfinder has a sensor to know when the users look at, so that it will switch the display from LCD to EVF or reverse. It also can control the camera to focus while the user looks at.
