Panasonic G2 and G10 Cameras Official

Last week we mentioned that Panasonic had plans to launch the Panasonic G2 and Panasonic G10 micro four thirds digital cameras. This leak has now been made official with the announcement yesterday of the new G2 and G10 cameras.

The Panasonic G10 is claimed to be the worlds “lightest digital interchangeable lens camera with a viewfinder”. The cameras as expected is capable of capturing images at 12 megapixels and is in the Micro Four Thirds format. Included with the camera is a Lumix G Vario 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH/MEGA O.I.S lens as well as iA (Intelligent Auto) to help the automatic mode capture the best shot.

Other features on the G10 include HD video recording that can capture video at 1280 x 720 pixels.

The Panasonic G2 also can capture at 12 megapixels but includes an articulating 3 inch LCD screen. The screen is touchscreen and allows the user to tap on an object they want to focus on. AF Tracking then is used by the camera to chase the subject around keeping it in focus when it stays within the frame. Just like the G10, the G2 can also capture in 720p and the camera comes with the same kit lens as the G10.

Launch dates and prices are not known just yet although we have heard they will be made available 30 days prior to shipping.
