Panasonic's New Lumix DMC-G2 Micro Four Thirds Camera

It was about a year and a half ago that Panasonic rolled out the Lumix DMC-G1, the world’s first Micro Four Thirds digital camera that combined the photo prowess of a DSLR with the compact body of a point and shoot.  Now Panasonic has pulled the wraps off the new and improved sequel, creatively titled the Lumix DMC-G2.  While resembling it’s older brother quite a bit in the looks department, the 12.1 megapixel G2 adds a slew of new bells and whistles to justify the upgrade.  The G@ is the world’s first Micro Four Thirds camera with a flip out, rotating, hi-res touch screen LCD.  Users can adjust the focus by tapping on a subject directly on the 3 inch screen, take a photo with a quick double tap, or scroll through already taken photos as if turning the pages of a book.  In addition the camera’s dedicated recording button allows you to now record hi-def video up to 720p in the AVCHD Lite format, which increases recording capacity and is highly compatible with a wide range of A/V equipment.  Driving all this is the new high speed, high performance Venus Engine HD II, which has been re-engineered to vastly improve the G1’s already on point image quality  No word on a price or release date just yet.
