The camera features high image quality and high performance in both response and function. The cameras use a collection of features that put enormous photographic power in a palm-sized camera. The high-grade metal body combined with the 4/3 - type sensor delivers high D-SLR-like performance, however in much smaller and lighter cameras and lenses than with a conventional D-SLR system. The Lumix G series models are compact and comfortable to use, with features that are designed to let users truly enjoy exploring completely new realms of photography. “With Panasonic’s G series of Lumix cameras, photographers can enjoy a new level of freedom, mobility and creativeness. These cameras come with enhanced features and functionality that make photography easy, more enjoyable and rewarding.

It carefully preserves the image quality of the 4/3-type sensor and offers excellent expandability and adaptability to future functions as well.

Full-time live view for setting up the perfect shot and the unique iA mode for capturing photos with all the ease of a compact digital camera are some of the user friendly features.
