The Lumix G5 uses Contrast AF like all G series digital cameras and is capable of recording video and shooting still shots. The camera features full-area Touch AF allowing the user to set the focus on any point in the field of view. The autofocus system also locks on the subject quickly allowing users to shoot quality photos of fast-moving objects. The viewfinder on the camera is 1.44-million dot equivalent.
The rear touchscreen has a resolution of 920,000 dots, rotates 180° to the side, and tilts 270° up and down. The Lumix G5 has 14 options in Creative Control Mode with different filters. Video recording at 60 frames per second in full 1080p resolution using AVCHD Progressive or MP4 formats is supported. The camera will be available in black, white, or silver in various kits.
Panasonic also unveiled the new Lumix LX7 digital camera. This camera has a 24 mm ultra-wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMILUX with the 20 times optical zoom. The lens uses 11 elements in 10 groups with five aspherical lenses with nine aspherical surfaces including a dual sided aspherical surface ED lens, which is never been used on other Lumix cameras for interchangeable lenses before.
