Digital Camera Description

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 is a Mirrorless Digital Camera with a Four-Thirds sensor and a Micro Four-Thirds lens mount. Its 12 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 160-6400 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 160-12800. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in relatively low-light. With 12 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/4000 to 1m. This camera can make Bulb exposures up to 4m. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/4000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 features a 23-point Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame. Manual Focus is also available.

A single control-dial on this camera makes it easy to use semi-automatic modes by adjusting the current exposure parameter directly This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. There is no viewfinder on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 and no provision to add one.
