Panasonic has unveiled prices for its Lumix Micro Four Thirds cameras G2 and G10 presented early last month. Both 12.1-megapixel cameras are expected to ship late in May, the Lumix G10 being priced at $600 and the Lumix G2 having a price of $800 and being available in black, red and blue. The Lumix G2 replaces the G1 and is known as the first digital camera with interchangeable lenses that sports a swivelling LCD touchscreen.
The touchscreen of the G2 allows users adjust auto focus and also capture photos with a simple touch of the subject on the 3-inch LCD screen. The camera is able to record 720-pixel high definition video in the AVCHD Lite format. Navigating playback of images and videos is also possible by using the touchscreen controls.
The Lumix G10 has the reputation of being the lightest digital interchangeable lens camera that has a viewfinder. It can also record 720-pixel high definition video in various formats like JPEG, VGA, QVGA and WVGA.
Either camera will ship with standard Lumix G Vario 14-42mm, f3.5-5.6 lens from Panasonic.
