LUMIX G Compact System Camera GF5 - Stylish Round-form Body Design Featuring Higher Image Quality and Advanced AF System

A combination of the 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor and the Venus Engine achieves higher image quality. With the dedicated circuit, which reads out signals with minimum noise, the level of noise is significantly suppressed and S/N (Signal-to-Noise) value is improved in shooting at high ISO setting. The Multi-step Noise Reduction applies optimum noise reduction according to the brightness of the part of the image. Images recorded in low-lit situations are now dramatically clear.

The DMC-GF5 features outstanding compactness and ease of operation while pursuing high image quality. Panasonic did not compromise in the equipment of camera such as built-in flash. It embraces beautiful stylish round-form body design featuring buttons with glossy finish, ergonomically studied grip and high-resolution 920K-dot LCD. The DMC-GF5 is based on the Micro Four Thirds System that lets you use the versatile line-up of Micro Four Thirds System standard lenses, including the LUMIX G / LEICA DG lenses.

The Creative Control allows you to express your creativity through wide variety of artistic filters including newly added six filters; Dynamic Monochrome, Impressive Art, Cross Process, Soft Focus, Star Filter and One Point Colour. It lets you adjust parameter (colour, saturation or contrast) by just moving the slider. With Creative Control and iA Plus, you can also control defocusing and brightness with smart touch operation. The Scene Guide makes it easier to capture impressive images and gives additional tips to create even better images.

The DMC-GF5 features the Light Speed AF of approx. 0.09 second (When using the H-PS14042 lens. Panasonic measurement method.) The DMC-GF5’s contrast AF boasts higher accuracy even in shooting at small F value. The phase-difference AF system is susceptible to mechanical margin of error. However, in the contrast AF system, focusing is controlled by the image sensor so that no mechanical margin of error occurs to achieve precise focusing. The AFF mode automatically focuses subjects only when flaming or subject move, during half press.

The DMC-GF5 can record 1920 x 1080 full HD videos in both AVCHD and MP4 format. The AVCHD format is excels in compatibility with AV equipment while the MP4 format is optimal for viewing and editing on a computer. A stereo microphone, featuring Dolby Digital Stereo Creator, records dynamic, true-to-life stereo audio. Even video beginners can record excellent videos because the iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode is available for video recording. The Creative Control and Photo Style are also available in video recording to add more creativity.
