Panasonic has launched a new Micro Four Thirds camera that comes with a touchscreen for easy shooting and playback. A $999 camera with interchangeable lenses is also available, aimed at users who want to step up from a point-and-shoot.

In a press briefing held by the company this morning, Panasonic Australia’s Group LUMIX Marketing Manager, Alistair Robins, said, “Touch operation has become familiar to today’s users, and most importantly, it makes it easier and quicker for users to capture their creativity in images and video using the DMC-G2.”

In addition to the new G2, Panasonic has also launched the G10, a $999 camera aimed at users who want to step up to the benefits of a system camera, while still retaining compact size and usability.  

The two cameras come with a Live View Finder with Full Time Live View that allows the user to easily check framing when composing a shot, as well as seeing how settings will affect the image before they shoot.

The DMC-G2’s touch-control shooting lets users adjust auto focus (AF) simply by touching the subject on the large 3.0-inch LCD. The camera also shoots High Definition video using the AVCHD Lite format.

Both the DMC-G2 and DMC-G10 also come with a new Intelligent Auto (iA) button, which gives photographers the ability to quickly switch into iA mode.
 
The DMC-G2 will be available in three colours (black, blue and red) from June with the following RRP: Twin lens kit ($1,599), single lens kit ($1,299), and body only ($1099).

The Panasonic DMC-G10 is available in black for $999 (single lens kit) or $1299 (twin lens kit).

Users who purchased accessories for their older Panasonic Micro Four Thirds camera can still use them on the new G10 and G2.
