Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2
Articulated screen, Four aspect ratios, Buttons customization.
Blazing autofocus. Faster bit rates for better HD video quality. Touchscreen tracking lets you pull focus in video using just your pinkie. Superb mic for outdoor shooting.
Digital SLR-style body will appeal to DSLR fans, Loads of exterior controls for adjusting still and video functionality, Full 1,920 x 1,080i HD video in AVCHD mode, High-quality "Cinema" mode gives 1080p video, at 24 fps.
Touchscreen LCD also can swivel and rotate away from camera, Extremely easy to use, Shoots sharp and bright photos, Camera offers quick response times, Camera design places most controls on top panel, making it easy to use.
Dedicated "film mode" button, 100% LCD frame coverage.
High noise in low light, Insufficient grip with large lenses, Small buffer for burst mode, Poor image quality straight out of the camera.
Feature laden to the point of feeling bloated. Pricey.
Overly complicated and confusing camera takes a long time to figure out, Movie recording cuts off nearly a second before the start/stop button was pressed (easy to work around, but a nuisance nonetheless).
Camera is bulkier than most mirrorless models, Shutter makes a little noise, even in "mute" mode, With large 14140mm lens, camera is heavy, needs a tripod.

The Panasonic GH2 is perhaps the most 'layered' camera we've reviewed. At its most basic level, it works well as an advanced consumer model; switch on iA mode and anybody can use it as both a photo and video camera. Unfold the GH2 however,...90
