The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 is a well-received hybrid DSLR that’s compatible with all four-thirds lenses via adapter mounts, and also compatible with Panasonic’s 3D lens, though a firmware update is required. It hosts the same aesthetics as its predecessor, the DMC-GH1, but adds along an enhanced 16MP multi-aspect LIVE MOS sensor, a faster Venus Engine FHD processor with three cores, and improved video capture up to 1080/60i or 1080/24p at 24Mbps, which is the highest in AVCHD format. Plus the articulating 3” LCD display offers 40% more of the sRGB color gamut and is now touchscreen, the electronic viewfinder is sharper (1.44 million to 1.53 million dots), and there’s a burst rate of 5fps for high-speed photography.
