Panasonic has introduced three new cameras to its Mirrorless series which arrive with a range of improved imaging technologies. These are the GX1, G5 and GH3 and they comprise a part of the Lumix Mirrorless series of Panasonic underneath the G line up.
Every disclosure sports a unique, innovative design and offers a broad spectrum of functionalities with their improved imaging technologies. These three new-fangled cameras are designed for operation in wide range of environmental conditions. The cameras arrive in the price range of Rs. 22,000 to as high as Rs. 99,990 excluding the lens.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3:
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 possesses a rugged Aluminum body with a splash proof and dust proof design, which thus makes it apt for rugged environment. It is an interchangeable lens camera featuring a 16.05 MP Micro Four Third s Live MOS sensor which is assisted with the new high speed 4-CPU Venus Engine for better image processing. The GH3 constitutes a 3-inch 614K-dot Free-angle OLED touch monitor with the addition of a 1744K-dot OLED Live View Finder.
Furthermore, the GH3 arrives with a Wi-Fi feature and after you install the LUMIX LINK app version 2.1 or higher (only for iOS and Android) you can easily click pictures using your Smartphones. The camera has been particularly designed for serious explorers and its usage helps in enhancing the overall photography experience.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 camera body can be purchased at Rs 99,990. If it is bought with Lumix 14140 lens, then it will cost Rs. 1,54,990.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 :
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 arrives as a successor to the Panasonic’s highly rated Lumix DMC-GF1. This is targeted to a particular segment of demanding photographers. The GX1 also features a 3-inch 460K-dot LCD touch monitor and 4 function buttons. Also it has the same 16MP Micro Four Thirds Live MOS sensor as the GH3 as well as the high speed Venus Engine. It offers an ISO range of 160-12800 and is capable of shooting at 4fps in Burst mode. Other features of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 include a Light Speed Autofocus system, built-in microphone, better noise reduction via 3DNR and MNR and Optical Image Stabilization. The DMC-GX1 features approximately 0.09 second of ultra-high speed Light Speed AF that can be easily achieved by simply reducing the detection time for focusing by the synchronization of the lens and the sensor at 120 fps.
The DMC-GX1 is priced at Rs 34,990 with the 14-42mm lens kit.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5:
Panasonic has juxtaposed the original pixel mix technology and the inherent high speed of the CMOS sensor to the 16.05-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor.
The DMC-G5 is presented with two types of noise reduction technologies. Firstly, it possesses the Multiprocess Noise Reduction that helps in optimizing the noise reduction which is present in the bright parts of the image for both single and burst shooting. Secondly, it comprises the 3D Noise Reduction, which focusses on applying optimal noise reduction by simply differentiating the edges and the smooth parts of the image in single shots.
Furthermore, the DMC-G5 has the ability of world’s fastest auto focusing called light speed AF that is only achieved by doubling the drive speed to 120 fps during the time that any individual shoots videos. This G5 is enabled with full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel video recording with 28 Mbps videos in AVCHD progressive Format.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 can be purchased at Rs. 37, 990 with 1442 mm lens and Rs. 43,990 with 1442 and 45150 mm lens.
