This stylish, ultra-compact Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GF5 Micro Four Thirds interchangeable lens digital camera incorporates brand new high-sensitivity 12.1 MP Live MOS sensor, and redesigned Venus Engine VII HD2 processor, helping to ensure true-to-life images through exceptional resolution, image rendering and color reproduction.

The DMC-GF5 features newly developed 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor which features high sensitivity signal processing. Even in low-light situations and at a maximum 12800 high ISO sensitivity, the camera produces stunning photos and videos.
The advanced image sensor combined with the improved high-performance Venus Engine VII HD2 image processor, featuring Multi-process Noise Reduction, both bright area and dark area are faithfully reproduced with minimum noise in high sensitivity image recording, lets you take rich photos and HD movies with low noise, even in low-light situations.
GF5 features the approx. 0.09 seconds of ultra high-speed Light Speed AF which is achieved by reducing the detection time for focusing by the synchronization of the lens and the sensor at 120 fps. Not only the accuracy but also the speed excels by far than the high-end digital SLRs with phase-difference AF with the advanced contrast AF system in the DMC-GF5.
Combined with Touch AF control and high-speed burst shooting at 4fps in full resolution, it has never been easier to capture fast-moving objects clearly. Additionally, Pinpoint AF allows for even more precise focus by further enlarging the focus area, assisting, for example, to set focus directly on the pupil of an eye.
GF5's bright and responsive 3.0-inch 920k dot LCD touchscreen with wide viewing angles, lets you frame the scene instantly and aim for the perfect shot every time. Meanwhile the touch-control system immediately allows users to set focus on a subject just by touching the screen and users can even release the shutter to snap a photo directly from the touch screen. Once a user locks onto a subject by a touch, the camera will track the subject with the AF tracking function, even if the subject moves. Touch Zoom is also available when the LUMIX Power Zoom Lens is mounted.
In spite of its compact size, the GF5 comes equipped with a built-in flash, a light intensity that is equivalent to GN6.3. For well-exposed photos in difficult lighting situations, this spring-loaded flash is stylishly hidden and ready to help you capture the perfect shot.
