Panasonic has announced its latest G-series Micro Four-Thirds camera. With an all-new processor which has improved speeds, the new mirrorless camera looks to negate some of the advantages Olympus took when it released the OM-D. With 1080p recording in AVC-HD, and continuous shooting at six frames per second at full resolution, the G5 incorporates a flash into the camera’s body, while featureing an impressive touchscreen LCD that can move in almost every direction, helping you get the best shot from any angle.
HDR mode and special contrast shooting modes promise to help perfectly expose photos, while dedicated settings are designed to help novices come to grips with the science of photgraphy.
Set to launch in August, Panasonic is yet to announce pricing or kit models.
