GF2 Panasonic Singapore launches Lumix DMC GF2 micro four thirds camera

SINGAPORE, 12 January 2011 – Panasonic has announced its new interchangeable lens system camera, DMC-GF2, from the LUMIX G Micro System series based on the Micro Four Thirds standard. The DMC-GF2 is smaller than its predecessor and features ease of operation while capable of capturing superb mage quality.

Available in black, silver, white, and pink, the camera is equipped with a built-in flash which adopts a new pop-up mechanism to prevent the vignette effect due to the short distance between the flash unit to the interchangeable lens. The GF2 also sports a 12.1-megapixels high speed Live MOS sensor and high performance Venus Engine FHD for high quality photo and movie recordings. Movie resolution has been upgraded to full HD 1920 x 1080 at 60i (NTSC) / 50i (PAL) in AVCHD.
