Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 Photos Image

As well as getting all hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2, we had a brief chance to take a few photos with this new Compact System Camera. Time and subject matter were limited, but here's a gallery of 68 photos at various ISO speeds. Note that the sample images were taken with a pre-production camera and have been resized at Panasonic's request.

Sample photos taken with the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 compact system camera (numbers 48-68 are official images supplied by Panasonic).

Judging from the sample photos, this camera takes sharp clear pictures and seems better than most on the market. If I were doing photography and traveling as I did so many years ago, this is certainly a camera I would like to have with me.

I would like to see a photo of this camera and the lens which took 600mm. Must be a crazy combination!

The camera is a pre-production model. Presumably Panasonic doesn’t feel that the image quality is yet representative of the final product. That’s why they don’t want people to see full-size images yet.

Frustrating as this may be, it seems reasonable. The internet pixel-peepers would have a field day with defects that are simply the result of unoptimized image processing firmware.

I have to disagree that all point and shoot pictures will look similar. At ISO 1600 or 3200, point and shoots will show more noise. Even when viewed at this tiny size.

Not quite sure what the point of this exercise is. Mediocre image
quality from a preproduction camera. That’s all I see. Can we expect

Hold your fire Gentlemen! 
This is a RECON not a RAID!

The point is, we get an initial look at 400, 800 and 1600iso images.
It’s called a pre-production collection and not the final edition.
The clay model and not the one that goes into the showroom to be sold! 
Still not happy?
Pre-production images reveals a LOT.
Firstly, that the camera works, secondly you see if there is distortion in lens and colour renditions or even exposure blowouts as well as some night shots.
It also gives a comparison to the final Edition which you will buy when those images get posted.
It’s a “before” and “after” thing which is the normal way to proceed when conjuring up something intricate.
Think of it as a suit being “tailored”
This is obviously way too scientific and non-obvious to some people with a tom dick&harry; approach to product assessment/appraisal.
Keep your nappy ON!

Hi Rama.. do you work for Panasonic? ;)
The sensor in the “new” camera is identical to the GF1; all they did was increasing the why should the GF2 images look different from GF1?
“Pre-production images reveals a LOT.” Give us a break, if you put in the GF1 shots, you won’t see the difference!

Hi Rama
I am not really interested in ‘clay models’ and the image quality of a pre production
camera with the same image sensor of it’s predecessor is not going to reveal
anything groundbreaking. I was expecting an upgrade to the GF1, but what we’ve
got here is some dumbed down version of it. Less hard buttons but a touch and smear
screen for better control? I also question the wisdom of the cameras size. There is a point
when ‘small’ becomes an ergonomic problem to operate a camera properly. The GF2
is not a ‘logical’ upgrade to the GF1, it’s a sidestep in order to accommodate the point
and shoot brigades to maximise profit. Cheers, Hans

Good colours, and decent dynamic range. That’s about all we can tell.
Focus, Bokeh, noise - we won’t know until we see the big files.
But I have always liked the Panny colours, so it’s about what I expected.

SLR camera are the most advanced introduction in the field of digitl photography. Most SLR cameras have extremely long zoom lenses and cameras possess megazooms to capture the perfect backgroung of the photo. SLR camera a great invention.

technicalities and retards…

wait till the actual camera comes out and then start pulling the pictures and syntax’s to pieces…

this is a teaser, so what. i dont know why they bother really with these ‘tastes’ which at the core arent really anything…..

Truth is the release product is the one and only version that should be pulled apart to the pixel, cos thats the only one that will count for more than just a random picture…...
