Product Information
Designed for people who want to experiment with photography, the Panasonic LUMIX 16.05 MP camera is a personal body only that is flexible. This Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH2 features an HDMI connection that makes sharing important events fun. What's more, this Panasonic LUMIX mirrorless interchangeable lens digital camera features a 16.05 MP image sensor, therefore you can create 12x18 inch prints of the moments of your life and send them to family and friends. A greater number of megapixels means you can enlarge and crop your photos without having pixelated pictures. The Panasonic LUMIX 16.05 MP camera is excellent for snapping and holding on to large numbers of special photos, with its removable flash storage, so that you will be able to choose the size of storage in the camera. This Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH2 allows you to remain primed to shoot photos using its rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries. With its black body, this Panasonic LUMIX mirrorless interchangeable lens digital camera will be a classy platform for preserving memories. The Panasonic LUMIX 16.05 MP camera is great for sharing captured memories, featuring a 3-inch LCD monitor, so that you will be able to review pictures with ease. This Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH2 is great for selecting camera settings, with its touchscreen, which enables you to configure camera settings and menu selections with ease. This Panasonic LUMIX mirrorless interchangeable lens digital camera comes with only the body and no lens. Picking and choosing the most appropriate interchangeable lens or lenses based on your changing photography needs and budget is one upside to purchasing the camera body on its own.

This camera is excellent in many ways, I already have a GH1, the GH2 has a higher resolution, touchscreen and some other bells and whistles, maybe the best part is the live view HDMI essential when working on videos with clients or focus assistants.
On the other hand I don't know why Panasonic did not include the DMW-DCC8 DC coupler cable, I need it to work with timelapses or long indoor recordings, on the GH1 it came boxed, not here. Worst is that the included battery doesn't charge, it keeps blinking and the 2 OEM batteries I bought chargewd only once and never again, it seems like the camera has an internal disabler for 3rd party batteries, so long my camera is boxed until I resolve this problem

Lumix DMC-GH2K

Good camera, lots of buttons to get direct access to various key functions
Swivel screen very useful, great eyepeice screen too
Great EV correction mechanism, easy and fast +/- 5EV is great
I do a lot of HDR so I like the ability to bracket 7 pictures
Forced to do 5 pictures to get +/- 2EV, would have liked 3 pictures for that like on my EOS 5 MK2
I would like to have more EV variation on Bracketing +/-2EV per step instead of one right now
Great 3 customs menus
Too bad cannot combine bracketing and 2s delayed picture as you have to buy the remote control in C1/C2/C3
I like the AE/AF lock button ergonomy as you can hit it without looking at it
I like the depth of field control capability and shutter speed effect control
I wish quick menu was more practical also it is not bad
Hight speed drive not available in bracketing, that is an issue when doing HDR without a tripod
Camera works well in Infrared, the control screen can be used at +5EV with manual focus (very cool)
Need to correct +1EV for standard Infrared picture
Besides that got the following lenses
8mm fisheye
7-14 zoom
14 2.5 prime (can do infrared) 46mm filter
20 1.7 prime (can do infrared) 46mm filter
45 2.8 Prime Macro (can do infrared) 46mm filter
Can travel with small Domke bag and this is light!!!!
And Gitzo Traveller 1550 (the best!) with Arco Swiss small head (can rotate and stay flat)

Plus 100-300 when needed

I purchase the gh2 and the camera is one of the best video and still camera. This camera perform well in low light condition and good in daylight shooting. I love the camera when shooting video because most people in public being record is not aware and you can take emotional shoot

I bought two GH2 bodies after selling my two G1's. I am not really into video, but wanted the improved low-light capability of the GH2 while keeping the smaller body size. I really like the available control buttons on the GH2 and have turned off the touch screen, an option available under the latest firmware update. I have used this camera enough to be able to work the controls without looking at them which speeds up my use of the camera under changing conditions. If you want the absolute latest in performance, go for the GH4. If you want a convenient size with adequate performance at a reasonable price, get a GH2. I don't have any complaints about this camera, but I may not be as demanding a user as some people. I'm just an old guy who grew up with photography and wants to be able to control the camera to make the best images possible. This one works for me.

Great Camera BUT fragile and I mean very Fragile the camera is great but build quality totally sucks IF you use this camera outdoors filming in a harsh inviroment it needs protection this is not well sealed and totally not shock proof like a pentax K5 or a canon 5D mk2
that said for Video this is AWESOME but treat it nice or it will break I know I have wrecked 2 of them and in my opinion they were not abused compared to the way i use my other gear.
I still film with a GH2 as it has great video performance but I will most likely change to a Nikon D800 as soon as I can get one for build quality
