I was super excited when NuffNang told me about a new campaign with the latest Panasonic Lumix G2. I love cameras so thought it would be fun to take part, It also came at a good time for me, because I've set myself a goal to do more of my own photography for the blog. As part of the campaign a bunch of bloggers were sent the new Panasonic Lumix G2 to review. The camera arrived on a Friday and I was straight to trying it out at the markets on the Sunday.
The camera is somewhere between a Point-and-Shoot and an SLR, and very compact for its type. It has an intelligent auto Mode setting where the camera chooses all the best settings for you but you can also choose to shoot in full manual. I took these photos with the intelligent auto mode setting.
It also has a large LCD which is touch screen! I used the touch screen function alot to set the focus and exposure area I wanted, like in this photo on the front few teacups.
It comes in a standard pack (one lense 14-42mm) but you can also get the twin lense pack (45-200mm) which is a very powerful zoom lense for those that want it (RRP $1599). Very good value to get an additional 45-200mm lense.
You can choose from three different body colours (red, black and blue), which is cool not many others do. It also does HD movies!
