The Panasonic Lumix GH2 compact DSLR camera that fits in the palm of a person's hand and supports the company's interchangeable 3D lens. In addition, the Lumix GH2 can record full high-definition 1080p video, and can shoot still images at maximum resolution at 5 frames per second. The 16-megapixel camera has an HDMI output for showing video or images on an HDTV. The GH2, like its predecessor the GH1, is what Panasonic calls a digital single lens micro, which is basically a compact camera for digital single-lens reflex photography. A DSLR camera, favored by professionals, supports interchangeable lenses and uses a mechanical mirror system and five-sided prism to direct light from the lens to an optical viewfinder in the back of the camera.
The Lumix GH2 is scheduled to be available in black and silver in early December. Prices will start at $900 for only the camera body. Body/lens kits will be available for $1,000 and $1,500.
