HD ready and then some

Physically, it looks more like the DMC-G2 than the DMC-GH1 and sports the articulating touchscreen of the G2, with other telltale differences being the GH2’s stereo mics mounted on the flash canopy.

Besides matching the GH1’s AVCHD video capture of 1920 x 1080 at 50i (PAL) or 60i (NTSC), the DMC-GH2 offers two 24p modes: 24H (24Mbps) and 24L (17Mbps). There’s also a Cinema mode, which offers film-like gradations.

With improved image processing and faster AF-to-capture response, the DMC-GH2 will be available from November for £900 (with 14-42mm lens) or £1300 (with 14-140mm lens).
