"Having compared the size of several different mirrorless interchangeable lens systems, we'll now take a look at how much detail relative to noise is captured at any given ISO by each of these systems. "

Serious Compacts has done a really nice comparison of the various mirrorless cameras on the market, comparing them based on their size, as well as doing an ISO test. The comparison is split into two parts, so be sure to check them out.

Part 1: Mirrorless Camera Size Comparison: NEX5, NX10, E-P2, E-PL1, GF1, G2

Part 2: Mirrorless Camera ISO Signal/Noise Shootout: NEX5, NX10, E-P2, E-PL1, GF1, G2, GH1

Panasonic G2 Reviewed by Digital Photography Review

Posted by Lee Yuan Sheng in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 05:00 PM

"The G2 is an evolutionary - but nonetheless solid - upgrade to the G1, that answers some of the criticisms of the original model, adding the aforementioned video mode (720P AVCHD lite or MJPEG) and tidying up and expanding the external controls. The other big news is that the G2 gets touch screen technology (seen on several Panasonic compact DSCs) - not exactly high on our list of ways in which the G1 could be improved, but in the era of the iPhone something that undoubtedly looks good on the marketing materials, if nothing else."

dpreview.com has posted their review of the Panasonic G2, and it is another favourable one for the G1's successor. It's not all perfect though, so hit the review (which also tests the new kit lens) and find out. Also, check out their new widget that compares sample images from four cameras, and allows you select any point from their test image to enlarge. Snazzy!

Panasonic G2 Reviewed; Micro Four Thirds Continues Its Advance

Posted by Lee Yuan Sheng in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 02:00 PM

"The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 is a new Micro Four Thirds camera boasting a 3 inch articulated touchscreen LCD that provides touch-based functions like Touch AF/AE and Touch Shutter. Other key features of the G2 include a 12.1-megapixel CMOS image sensor, upgraded Venus Engine HD II processor, sensitivity range of ISO 100-6400, 720p HD video recording in AVCHD Lite format, a port for an optional stereo microphone and an electronic viewfinder."

Well, it looks like Panasonic has another winner on its hands. If you did read the post on BCNRankings for interchangeable lens cameras sold in Japan, sales of Micro Four Thirds cameras are on the rise. I do like some of the changes Panasonic has wrought on this release, like moving the command dial to the rear of the camera, but at the same time, it's all so incremental. Yea, there's video now compared to the G1, but there's not much on the still camera side. I wish more companies would be like Nikon, where usually a new camera really brings about change.

Oh, and if you are interested in this camera, I suggest looking for the dual-lens version that comes with the 45-200mm lens as well. I believe it is quite competitively priced (unless Panasonic decides to screw over consumers in some parts of the world).
