Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 Quick Review

 

This is the latest in our series of new 'Quick Reviews.' We will be using this format for cameras that are operationally similar and identical in terms of output to models we've already reviewed. We test to confirm the image quality is identical (noise...

Poor EVF compared to G1/GH1/G2 No automatic EVF/LCD switch Fixed LCD screen Out-of-camera JPEG color not as appealing as best competitors New kit lens not as good as predecessor Image quality at ISO 3200 poor, ISO 6400 verging on the unusable High ISO...

Review: Panasonic Lumix G10

 

If you're looking to graduate from point-and-shoot school and go to DSLR university, consider the Lumix G10.

Looks and feels like a mini-SLR. Lightweight and easy to use with one hand. Comfy tactile finish and good ergonomics. A credible, beginner, interchangeable-lens camera. Dedicated iA button for no-brainer shooting

Pointless electronic viewfinder. Decidedly average auto-focusing in low-light conditions

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10

 

The Panasonic Lumix G10 is an affordable option for photographers who want D-SLR image quality and speed without the bulk of a traditional D-SLR.

D-SLR image quality. Camcorder-like 720p30 HD video recording. SDXC card support.

Poor low-light performance (images are noisy above ISO 800). Microphone picks up lens noise during video capture. Proprietary USB cable.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 review

 

Panasonic's entry-level interchangeable-lens model, the Lumix DMC-G10, is a moderately de-featured version of its big brother, the G2 . Based around the same Micro Four Thirds-standard sensor and lens mount, the G10 is a solid ILC model, but one that...

Fastest in its class thus far; well-built; intelligent design for enthusiasts, with lots of direct-access controls.

Mediocre EVF; no dedicated record button; overly noisy JPEG photos.

How the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 stacks up to its competition depends upon your priorities: it's the speed king, with the best design for manually oriented shooters, but its image quality lags the field.

Lumix DMC-G10 Preview

 

Along with the announcement of the DMC-G2, Panasonic has released a second new G model, the DMC-G10. Sharing almost identical specifications with it's brother, the G10 includes a slightly different Live Viewfinder with less resolution (202k dots) and...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 is officially the world's lightest system camera with an eye-level viewfinder, weighing a mere 336g / 11.85 oz without a lens fitted. This new Micro Four Thirds camera boasts a 12.1-megapixel CMOS image sensor, upgraded...

Panasonic have taken an already proven design in the G1, added the must-have feature of 2010, high-definition movies, and removed a few less noticeable features to help bring the price down. The result is the new G10, a light and capable system camera...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 Review

 

CONCLUSION The Panasonic DMC-G10 is the best-priced model in its line-up of MFT cameras. It has a lot of the same features as its predecessors, including the same body, build, look and feel. Many of the same specs are carried over from the G1 and GH1,...

Panasonic Lumix FZ20S-K

 

Not too long ago, we had a heart-to-heart encounter with the Lumix FZ10 digital camera from Panasonic. Today, we get to sit down with the Lumix FZ20, and take a look at some of its upgrades on its predecessor, the FZ10, and its own unique features. The...

Overall, this is a great digital manual camera which is slightly more powerful than its previous model, the FZ10.

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G10 interchangeable lens camera

 

Panasonic LUMIX G10 review: A Micro Four Thirds camera that takes great pictures, but could be better value

Good image clarity, good manual features, built-in EVF, great focusing features and performance

Feels a little sluggish, no auto-switching between LCD and EVF, no dedicated video recording button, not great for night-time shooting

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G10 is an entry-level interchangeable lens camera that has heaps of features, but it could still use a couple more. At $899 with a 14-42mm zoom lens, this Micro Four Thirds camera isn't cheap, but it's small, it has manual...
