Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10

Announced Mar 7, 2010 •
12 megapixels | 3 screen | Four Thirds sensor
dpreview conclusion

The G10 is Panasonic's first entry-level Micro Four Thirds camera. Its core systems are capable and reliable, and although its menu system is a little dated, the G10 is an easy camera to find your way around. Unfortunately it is marred by a poor EVF, which is almost unusable in some shooting situations.

Good for

General use either by a beginner or enthusiast using the rear LCD screen. Plenty of customisation but capable iA automatic mode as well.

Not so good for

Anything that requires the EVF.

The G10 fills an affordable alternative to its more expensive Micro System Camera cousins. What it lacks in features (and there's not much) is made up for by its low price. Easy to use, well laid out and intuitive, this is a fairly no-frills G-series camera that doesn't sacrifice performance for value, yet lacks the excitement offered by other models such as the G2's tilt-angle...
