Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH2 official

The successor to the GH1 is now officially announced. The LUMIX DMC-GH2 Micro Four Thirds camera features featuring a new 16.05-megapixel multi-aspect LIVE MOS sensor, allowing high speed burst shooting at 5 frames per second and 1920 x 1080 video recording at 60 frames per second.

The GH2 utilizes the refined Venus Engine FHD processor for better noise reduction and more crisp photos and video recording. The LUMIX GH2 also features faster AF, reducing detection time for focusing to approximately 0.1 second3 by doubling the drive speed from 60 frames per second to 120 frames per second.  The camera has a swiveling 3.0-inch 460,000-dot high-resolution touch panel LCD, which allows to touch the subject on the LCD to adjust AF and once a user locks onto a subject, the camera tracks the subject with AF tracking even if it moves.
