Compact cameras are convenient, but sometimes you want to get more creative. Digital SLR cameras can be difficult to handle and operate. The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G10 gives you compact size, stunning images and super-easy operation letting you capture exquisite images in all kinds of shooting situations. The double Live-View function offered by the large and bright 3.0” 460K LCD screen and Live View Finder makes it possible to see in all conditions how your settings affect the final image, before you capture it. The 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor and the new Venus Engine HD II integrating Intelligent Resolution technology assure high image quality. You can use the compact G10 to shoot high-quality 720p HD movies, too. Beautiful shots, easy operation: with the G10, a world of inspiring images is right at your fingertips.


Movie Feature – record HD movies up to 1280x720p in MotionJPEG format at 30 frames per second. File size is up to 2GB*/**.


* We recommend using Class 4 or higher memory cards for HD video recording

**SDHC Memory Cards and SDXC Memory Cards can be used only in equipment that is compatible with their respective formats. If the computer being used does not support SDXC Memory Cards, a message prompting you to format may appear. (Doing so will cause recorded images to be erased so do not choose to format.) If the card is not recognized, please refer to the below support site.



confused.JPG What are the features and how will they benefit you?

3.0” 460,000-dot LCD Screen –3.0” LCD with a 100% field of view. And a wide-viewing angle that lets you frame your shot in a variety of ways for both shooting and viewing.

Full Time Live View - lets you check your image before you shoot it. Both the LCD and the 1,440,000-dot electronic viewfinder give you a live view of what you're shooting with approx. 100% field of view.

Ease of Use - precise button placement and a simple, logical menu interface work together to make operation easy and intuitive.

Mega O.I.S Optical Image Stabilisation - compensates for hand-shake to help prevent blurring, so you get sharp, clear shots.

Advanced Contrast AF System – accurate high-speed autofocus system focuses in approx 0.03 seconds (with the 14-42mm lens). Features 23 focus points, AF tracking and Face Detection.

AF Tracking – Once you focus on your subject, the AF automatically tracks it - even if it moves - until you press the shutter. Great for sports, kids, animals etc.

Consecutive Shooting with Full Time Live View - lets you snap off unlimited consecutive shots at approx. 2.6 frames per second with full resolution,  even when using the Full-time Live View.

Face Detection AF/AE with Face Recognition - detects and recognises pre-registered faces and automatically optimizes the focus and exposure settings.

Intelligent ISO Control - detects subject movement and automatically adjusts the ISO setting and shutter speed to best suit the movement and light conditions – helps prevent blurring.

Intelligent Exposure – underexposes bright areas to prevent washed out images and brightens shadowy areas to prevent loss of detail.

Auto Backlight Compensation - When there is strong backlighting, the background appears nice and bright, but the subject is dark. This function detects backlight conditions and compensates for it automatically.

iA (Intelligent Auto) - features the same iA mode as LUMIX compact models. It's so easy to operate - you just choose the iA Mode, aim at your subject, and shoot.

Intelligent Scene Selector – automatically detects and selects the correct scene mode for the shooting conditions.

12.1 Megapixel Live MOS Sensor - The 4/3-type 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor featured in the DMC-G10 offers the best of both worlds – the superior image quality of a CCD sensor, and the lower power consumption of a CMOS sensor.

Venus Engine HD II - features exceptionally advanced signal processing capabilities so you can capture clear and beautiful images even when shooting at high ISO sensitivity levels.

Extended Battery Life – expect to get around 380 shots per charger with the supplied rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

Dust Reduction System – helps eliminate dust collecting on the sensor that shows up as spots on your images, typical of interchangeable lens cameras.

Micro Four Thirds Lenses – compatible with Micro Four Thirds lenses as well as a vast array of other lenses with differing functionality, via lens adapters (sold separately).

My Colour Mode – choose from a range of artistic colour filters – Expressive, Retro, Pure, Elegant, Monochrome, Dynamic Art, Silhouette and Custom.

Film Mode - you can manually choose from 6 colour types and 3 monochrome types - even when shooting movies - to get even more creative images

Scene Mode with Peripheral Defocus-  lets the camera make the optimal settings for you automatically, so anybody can take superb photos and movies with ease. The Peripheral Defocus Mode automatically focuses on the AF area you choose while gently defocusing the foreground and background to emphasize your subject.

Built-in Flash - built-in flash has a light intensity that is equivalent to GN11, and you can adjust the intensity within a range of ±EV 2 in 1/3 EV steps.

RAW file format – file format that allows greater adjustment of various camera settings on your computer after you have captured your images, without losing image quality, such as adjustment of colour balance, exposure, etc.

Auto Bracket - a wide variety of bracket functions is available to match your shooting conditions including exposure bracket, white balance bracket and Multi Film Mode.

Wind Cut Function - blocks out most of the noise from background wind.

HDMI Output/Viera Link - Just connect the DMC-G10 to an HDTV and you're ready to view your movies and photos in beautiful high-definition. (requires optional mini HDMI cable)
