Viewfinder

Unlike the Sony ZV-1, Panasonic has decided to include a viewfinder on the G100. It's an impressive finder for a camera at this price.

The resolution is 3.68M dot equivalent, with the e-word denoting the use of a field-sequential update where the red, green and blue components of the image are flashed at your eye one after the other (rather than having separate, sub-pixel 'dots' showing each color at each location).

However, whereas this technology can sometimes produce a strange rainbow 'tearing' effect if your eye moves as the colors update, the experience on the G100 is excellent. Even the person most sensitive to the effect had no problem using the camera, meaning you're left with a large, bright and energy-efficient viewfinder.
