    Panasonic DMC-GF2 Micro 4/3 SLR less than half price.

    I have been struggling to keep my finger off the Buy Now button on this one, now first off this is not a perfect camera but for this price for a micro four thirds camera with decent sensor size and lens interchangeability it is great.

    Have a read of the review before buying one as the cameras flaws may break the deal for some, here is a review on CNET
    online review

    Ryda have Aus stock and are great to deal with, I currently have a Panasonic camera and I have given it hell and it will soon click over 10000 photos. It has been dropped on the lens, left in a Camelback in the rain for hours, dropped down the side of a hill and it has still never missed a beat.

    Just a heads up these guys have it for $418 including delivery Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera body only - 12.1 Megapixel - Digital Camera Warehouse Australia

    Maybe worth phoning them and asking if the lens comes with it, as it says Body Only on some parts of their page and in other parts it says the kit includes the 14-42mm lens.

    The Lumix DMC-GF2 is the latest in Panasonic’s series of Micro Four Thirds system interchangeable lens digital cameras, and is the world’s smallest and lightest in its class. Featuring a 12.1 Megapixel 4/3 Live MOS sensor, 3.0″ 460K Touch LCD screen with new easy-to-use interface, and Full HD 1920x1080 movies in both AVCHD Lite and MotionJPEGformat, all in a compact design, the GF2 gives you D-SLR image quality in a camera that you can fit in a coat pocket or handbag. And of course a whole host of lenses can be used via various mount adapters, as well as the new 3D micro four thirds lens (sold separately). The GF2’s all-new creative My Color mode offers a total of 8 preset effects — Expressive, Retro, Pure, Elegant, Cinema, Monochrome, Dynamic Art and Silhouette . Also features touch control including Touch AF and Touch Shutter, Intelligent Auto, and full time Live View. Available in black or white body.

    This kit includes the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 Body + Panasonic LUMIX G VARIO 14-42 mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. Lens

    Wow I thought the Ryda deal was good, $418 for a touchscreen SLR with a useful lens is a bargain.

    I am hoping the Lumix GH2 goes on clearance in the near future, if I see one at a crazy price I'll grab it.

    That's a pretty good deal but I'll stick with my canon gear, although this camera does look good.

    Features

    Product Origin
    : Genuine Australian Panasonic Stock. Warranty: Panasonic Australia 12 Month Warranty.

    Please Note: This Panasonic Digital Camera is part of our Clearance and is available in limited quantities. Please note that this is a limited offer and is only available while stocks last. This product may have already sold out and no rain checks are offered on clearance items.


    Panasonic DMC-GF2KGN-W Compact DSLR Camera
    with Lumix 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 ASPH Lens

    Why Buy Me

    • 100% Australian Stock with Australian Panasonic Warranty
    • Supplied with 14-42mm Lens
    • Compact Size with all the Features
    • 12.1 Megapixel
    • 460k Large Touch Screen LCD
    • Live MOS Sensor
    • iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode
    • Interchangeable Lenses
    • Full HD Movies in AVCHD Format
    • High Definition Recording
    • Intelligent Auto or Full Manual Control



    With a dramatic downsizing from the predecessor, the DMC-GF2 features an outstanding compactness and ease of operation while pursuing high image quality.
    The DMC-GF2 is dramatically reduced approx. 19% in size and approx. 7% in weight compared with the predecessor DMC-GF1 to make the body world’s smallest and lightest*. It is made possible by various innovative approaches including the downsizing of mount unit and a reduced number of internal parts by integrating electrical circuits. The DMC-GF2 is equipped with a built-in flash which adopts new pop-up mechanism to prevent vignetting effect due to short distance between the flash unit to the interchangeable lens. Even step-up users will not be bewildered by the absence of the flash which has been taken for granted with compact cameras. The use of flash expands the photographic opportunity in shooting people at nighttime or indoors.
    The operation is extremely easy to understand for any level of users with the touch control and the new GUI (Graphic User Interface) designed for the DMC-GF2. Together with the simple button components including the dedicated buttons for movie recording and iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode which lights in use, you can operate the camera intuitively with ease.



    By using the Micro Four Thirds System standard and developing a camera body that eliminates the mirror box and optical viewfinder unit, the DMC-GF2 was able to achieve a dramatic reduction in both size and weight, compared with conventional digital SLR cameras. In addition, compared with the DMC-GF1, it reduced approx. 19% in size and approx. 7% in weight.






    The DMC-GF2 comes in a choice of body colors: true black, sleek silver, clean white, active red and pink, and makes even more fun to choose the one that fits your style.
    The chassis is made of aluminum to realize rigid impression of quality. The grip is designed to assure good hold and even the camera is slim and compact. The tiny, pocket-sized DMC-GF2 brings you huge surprise of photographic enjoyment.








    To elevate its operability even higher, the DMC-GF2 adopts touch-control shooting. The auto focus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the large, 460,000-dot LCD. You can also operate the auto focus and shutter release at the same time with just a touch, for a completely new way to shoot.

    Pretty much any Canon SLR(probably all) will produce better pics than this but with dimensions of 113 x 68 x 33 mm and with a fixed 14mm lens you could throw it in to a pair of cargo shorts.
