The LUMIX G can make it possible to create high-quality image expression in movie recording with not only smooth gradation but also excellent resolution and color reproduction, which makes the image come alive.
The large "Live MOS sensor" ensures a wide dynamic range and faithfully reproduces the details with fine gradation and high resolution. The image processing engine "Venus Engine" realizes high-speed image processing and high-quality images with suppressed noise. LUMIX G lenses truly reproduce the image as it is with excellent optical performance.
By achieving the perfect balance between these three elements, the high-quality image expression is made possible.
Create your own expression of images as you want.
It is LUMIX G lenses that capture the subjects as they are. This is realized by the optical technology Panasonic has long been developed.
Excellent lens performance as well as a small and light-weight body is realized at the same time by adopting the Micro Four Thirds System standard. There is no compromise on image quality.
Panasonic offers a variety of LUMIX G lenses, ranging from a fish-eye lens to a telephoto lens, to support different shooting scenes. The lens line-up best suited to movie recording includes lenses featuring silent design with a linear motor, and lenses supporting fast AF.
Comfortable operability of the LUMIX G enables you to shoot freely and inspires boundless imagination.
The LUMIX G, which realized a compact and light-weight system as a whole including lenses, allows you to compose images as you want in any places where the shooting space is limited. The free-angle LCD also allows you a comfortable shooting at any angle. With touch-screen operation, you can easily move the focus to the area you want to focus on.
The long recordable time is realized by adopting an optimal sensor size and energy-saving design. You can record images without worrying about the battery.
You can use iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode in movie recording to support more comfortable operability.
The LUMIX G adopts AVCHD which is the industrial standard format in movie recording. It proposes a new way to enjoy movies.
The long recordable time in movie recording in HD with less noise is made possible by adopting "AVCHD." The recordable time in AVCHD is approximately twice as long as that in Motion JPEG when the recorded movie has the same data size.
As Dolby® Digital is adopted in AVCHD sound, you can enjoy more realistic sensation of sound.
Movies in AVCHD are well compatible with audio visual equipment supporting AVCHD. You can enjoy HD movies at home with ease.
The movie recording format can also be easily converted to enjoy with your equipment such as a PC.

Comparison of Recording Length with the DMC-GH2
(per a single charge of battery)*1
*1 Approx. The length of recording time depends on the capacity of the SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Card. • Use a card with SD Speed Class* with "Class 4" or higher when recording motion images in AVCHD. Also, use a card with SD Speed Class with "Class 6" or higher when recording motion images in Motion JPEG. *SD Speed Class is the speed standard regarding continuous writing.
*2 QuickTime Motion JPEG. Continuous recording exceeding 2GB is not possible when recording Motion JPEG. Remaining time for continuous recording is displayed on the screen.
The large "Live MOS sensor" and "Venus Engine" make it possible to shoot with higher sensitivity.
It makes it possible to record clear images with low noise even in the dark scenes, which is difficult to shoot with conventional video cameras. Thus, the shooting possibilities have been expanded.
Recording with high sensitivity is very effective in much more shooting scenes, such as night scenes and dark indoors, allowing you to shoot impressive scenes having light and dark areas.
It is easy to control exposure manually in movie recording with the LUMIX G cameras.
With a large, Live MOS sensor and a bright interchangeable lens, you can make the subject stand out by giving a defocus on the background with exposure control.
Furthermore, changing a shutter speed allows you to express dynamic movement when recording a subject in motion.
