About the performance of Face Recognition function
Recognition performance varies greatly depending on shooting conditions, i.e., according to factors such as angles, facial expression and lighting, so operation under all conditions cannot be guaranteed. Because the camera searches for faces that are similar to registered faces,
there are cases where the faces are not correctly recognized when the registered image and the shooting image varies much. When facial characteristics are similar, particularly between parents and their children or brothers and sisters, the camera may not distinguish the faces.

The Mir rorless Pedigree
E n d l e s s
E v o l u t i o n
LUMIX revolutionized the SLR camera in 2008 by eliminating the mirror —
marking the world's first Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) camera.
In addition to making the body and lens smaller and lighter,
the new camera achieved better handling
and higher-quality images and performance.
In 2012, the DMC-G5 took the next major step.
Inheriting all previous innovations,
it added new image rendering capabilities and nimble mobility,
while also optimizing video performance.
Once again, mirrorless technology is driving system camera evolution.

Advanced Technology
Lets You Harness Your Own Creativity.
16.05-megapixel
Digital Live MOS Sensor
High-Speed, High-Performance
Venus Engine
Panasonic has added its original pixel mix technology and the
inherent high speed of the CMOS sensor to the 16.05-megapixel
Digital Live MOS Sensor. Processing is further designed to minimize
noise generation in the new sensor. Finer wiring around the
photodiode achieves a higher aperture ratio, which results in higher
resolution and an excellent S/N ratio while a new high-performance
transistor speeds up signal processing. Taking full advantage of the
Digital Live MOS Sensor and Venus Engine, images can be shot in
low lighting at the high ISO sensitivity setting of 12800.
The Venus Engine applies advanced signal
processing to both photos and video, and attains
exceptional noise-reduction performance with the
combination of 3D Noise Reduction (3DNR) and
Multi-process Noise Reduction (MNR) systems. A total of four
CPUs work in tandem to quickly process the digital signals for
these advanced noise reduction systems, and the signals for
1,920 x 1,080 Full-HD progressive video recording and highspeed burst shooting.
Top-Class Aspherical Lens Production
Noise Reduction System
Lumix G lenses are all developed in-house. Their quality is
inspected by the UA3P Ultra-High Accuracy 3D Profilometer, an
instrument that was originally developed by Panasonic and is
now used by optical manufacturers
all over the world. Panasonic’s
collaboration with Leica Camera AG
also resulted in stringent quality
standards for these advanced lenses
and a system in which each and every
lens is inspected.
The DMC-G5 features two types of noise reduction: Multiprocess Noise Reduction, which optimizes the noise reduction in
the bright parts of the image for both single* and burst shooting,
and 3D Noise Reduction, which applies optimal noise reduction
by differentiating the edges and the smooth parts of the image
in single shots. This system effectively suppresses the kind of
noise that is typically found in high-sensitivity image recording.*
Rich Gradation and a Wide Contrast Range
HDR (High Dynamic Range)
The HDR function overlays several still images that are
consecutively shot at different exposure levels to produce
a single composite image without blown highlights (overexposure) or blocked shadows (under-exposure).
Over-exposure
Under-exposure
* Not applicable to video recording.
Dust Reduction System
If dust or other foreign matter were to enter the camera while
changing lenses, it could cling to the image sensor and show
up as a spot in your photos. The Dust Reduction System in the
DMC-G5 helps eliminate this possibility by placing a SupersonicWave Filter in front of the Digital Live MOS Sensor, between
the low-pass filter and the shutter. Vibrating vertically around
80,000 times per
second, the filter
effectively repels
dust and other
particles.

High-Precision AF
Makes Sure You'll Always Get Your Shot.
Contrast AF Accuracy
Eye Sensor AF
Full-area Focusing
The DMC-G5 uses the Contrast AF system,
which boasts high accuracy even when
shooting at a small F value. Unlike Phase
Difference AF, which is susceptible to a
mechanical margin of error, focusing in
the DMC-G5’s Contrast AF is controlled
by a system in which the image sensor
doubles as the AF sensor to achieve
precise focusing — and no mechanical
margin of error.
The high-resolution Live View Finder
features the Eye Sensor AF function,
which automatically starts focusing
when you look into the LVF to capture
the spur-of-the-moment. It’s almost
as though the camera understands
your shooting intent and speeds up the
focusing process to help you get the
sharpest, most accurate shot possible.
Full-area focusing in the DMC-G5 lets
you focus on any point in the field of
view. You can freely and intuitively
compose your shots with touch-screen
operation. Full-area Focusing,
a convenience made possible by
Contrast AF.

6-fps Burst Shooting
Burst Shooting
with AF Tracking
The incredible speed of the
DMC-G5 precisely captures
moving subjects. It features
the world’s fastest level of auto
focusing, called Light Speed AF, which
is achieved by reducing the detection
time for focusing by doubling the
drive speed from 60 to 120 frames
per second.* The DMC-G5’s advanced
Contrast AF system makes sure you
always get the shot you want.
The DMC-G5 can fire off up to
about 6 frames per second in full
16.05-megapixel resolution with its
mechanical shutter. Even higher-speed
burst shooting is possible when the
electronic shutter is used, like 20 fps for
capturing race cars and other subjects
that are even difficult to see with the
naked eye.
Burst shooting with AF tracking
automatically maintains the focus while
tracking moving subjects. This lets
you capture high-quality images in full
16.05-megapixel resolution at 3.7 fps.

high-quality photos or videos. Select the one that will save your memories most
beautifully. The DMC-G5 records high-resolution Full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 60p
(NTSC)/50p (PAL) videos with 28 Mbps videos in AVCHD Progressive (MPEG-4/H.264)
format. Upgrading the full-HD recording capability from interlaced to progressive,
subjects with fast motion or fine details are reproduced even more clearly.

Interlace
Progressive
Half of the image information is recorded
alternately for each field.
Images have higher definition because the entire
frame is recorded in 1920 x 1080 resolution.
Video Recording with Touch AF
Video recording with Touch AF lets you
enjoy professional-like rack focusing.
Simply point at your subject. The focus
automatically shifts to it, making it stand
out to draw the viewer’s attention. The
DMC-G5 opens a whole new dimension
in video shooting without requiring
advanced skills. You can also switch the
subject of the focus by simply touching a
different subject on the screen.

Dolby® Digital Stereo Creator
Easy Video Recording
with Full-Time Auto Focus
AF Tracking
The DMC-G5’s high-speed, high-precision
AF functions operate even while shooting
videos. Live View video shooting couldn’t
be much easier.
Just touch the screen, and the DMC-G5
locks on and automatically “tracks” the
subject as it moves, constantly adjusting
the focus for the best results.
A stereo zoom
microphone gives
videos the realistic, high-quality stereo
sound of Dolby® Digital Stereo Creator.

Touch Screen Operation
GUI (Graphical User Interface)
The 3.0-inch, 920K-dot,
high-resolution LCD monitor
makes it easy to operate a
variety of functions, such
as pressing the shutter,
focusing, and displaying
the Scene Guide, by simply
touching the monitor.
A new graphic engine makes the GUI
clearer and easier to see, which also makes
operation simpler and more intuitive.
Touch Pad AF
You can set or change
the focus position by
touching the LCD panel
while watching the
viewfinder, for highly
intuitive focusing.
Level Gauge
The Level Gauge uses an internal level and acceleration sensors to
detect the horizontal/vertical
angle of view. Photos shot in
a portrait configuration are
automatically displayed vertically
regardless of which lens is used.
Electronic Shutter
The Electronic Shutter mode eliminates shutter sound, making it ideal for
shooting in quiet situations such as recitals, school plays or in museums.

professional photographers. Choose the one that is
closest to your shooting situation and the parameters will
be automatically optimized.

In 2008, a small single lens camera made a huge impact. It was called mirrorless, and the brand was Lumix G.
Along with the mirror, it eliminated many of the previous disadvantages of the DSLR.
The mirrorless structure created an entirely new relationship between photographers and cameras.
