The 16.05-megapixel Live MOS Sensor features Panasonic's original pixel-mix technology, designed exclusively to minimize noise generation. The fine wiring results in high resolution and quick processing. With contrast AF (Auto Focus) the image sensor controls your focus giving you a greater range to create your crisp, clear images.
Based on the Micro Four-Thirds system, Panasonic eliminates the bulky mirror box and pentaprism found in conventional DSLRs without compromising sensor or optical performance. Camera bodies and lenses are now dramatically smaller and lighter than traditional SLRs, making them more portable so you can take them with you virtually anywhere.
The 920K-dot high-resolution LCD rotates 180° to the side and tilts 270° up and down offers approx. 100% of field of view. This LCD enables dynamic, artistic framing with high-angle shots and low-angle shots.
