The G5 Triple Threat: 16 Megapixel Sensor – Venus Engine – Spot-on Colors
- The 16.05-megapixel Live MOS Sensor features Panasonic’s original pixel-mix technology, designed exclusively to minimize noise generation. The fine wiring results in high resolution and quick processing.
- A redesigned Venus Engine produces clear, crisp photo and video images. Its MNR (Multi-process Noise Reduction) quickly detects brightness in every part of a shot and its HDR (High Dynamic Range) allows for several pictures taken at different exposure levels to turn into a single composite picture that eliminates over-or-under-exposure. The 3DNR reduces rough edges.
- Intelligent Resolution technology detects outlines, intricate texture, and gradation thus precisely processing pixel by pixel to render true-to-life color reproduction that is spot-on.
LightSpeed Auto-Focus Helps you Never Miss a Shot
With contrast AF (Auto Focus) the image sensor controls your focus giving you a greater range to create your crisp, clear images. This is great for recording fast moving subjects like your little leaguer, migrating birds, or your best friend who decided to bungee jump. Contrast AF boasts higher accuracy, especially when shooting with a bright lens. And since you have a full-area AF touch, you select your desired field of vision. Additionally, Light Speed AF quickly locks onto a subject, making it possible to capture even fast moving subjects.
Latest Micro Four Thirds Mirrorless Technology – Smaller Camera Systems Deliver Big Results
Based on the Micro Four-Thirds system, Panasonic eliminates the bulky mirror box and pentaprism found in conventional DSLRs without compromising sensor or optical performance. Camera bodies and lenses are now dramatically smaller and lighter than traditional SLRs, making them more portable so you can take them with you virtually anywhere.
Show off your Creative Side
The Creative Control mode has been upgraded in the G5 with 14 creative filters that let you tell your photographic story. Choose from Soft Focus to Dynamic Monochrome to One Point Color or from the original filters like Expressive and Retro. With the new GUI and menu tabs, switching filter effect is extremely easy and is possible to preview via the Live View Switching. If you can’t decide, your G5 will recommend the one that bet fits your scene in iA (Intelligent Auto) or iA Plus mode. While you’re in iA Plus, adjust your defocusing area in the background, exposure, and white balance.
Make Movies, Make Memories & Share Your Story in HD
Not only does the LUMIX G5 produce stunning still images, it also records high quality video in full-HD and with DolbyDigital Stereo sound, in MPEG-4, AVCHD Progressive. Touch AF lets you enjoy professional-grade focusing allowing you to shift gears while shooting your movie. AF Tracking easily locks a subject into focus, even when it moves. The Extra Tele Conversion function extends your zoom to 4.8x and a special Video Record button lets you instantly and simultaneously record videos while shooting photographs and conversely, take photos while recording. Install the included PHOTOfunSTUDIO 8.2 PE on your PC, and you are set to turn your movie into your story.
