Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G3
With all of the features and benefits of a DSLR interchangeable lens camera, the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G3 is just as compact, simple and easy to use as a point-and-shoot. The camera uses a Micro Four Thirds (MFT) System mount, offering greater size and weight reduction in the lens without compromising lens performance and clarity. Also, a movable 3.0-inch LCD allows for intuitive touch control of menus and most shooting, focusing, playback and effects controls. Even the shutter can be triggered from the LCD panel by simply touching the subject you want focused and captured. Other features of this 16-megapixel compact camera include a 14-42mm Lumix f/3.5-5.6 lens, 1080/60i HD capability in AVCHD format, dust reduction system, live viewfinder and Venus Engine FHD. Priced at $699.99 USD, the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G3 is currently for sale online through select stockists, including Amazon.
