Panasonic GF2 Micro Four Thirds Camera Begins to Ship

January 28, 2011, By Leo Xavier

The Panasonic GF2 is now shipping to retail stores. The extra-compact camera, which is the successor to the Panasonic GF1 Micro Four Thirds camera, should be available on store shelves at the moment.

As you might remember, the GF2 was announced in November of the previous year.

The new camera, which has been touted as the lightest and one of the smallest cameras with an interchangeable lens, is 19% smaller in size and 7% lighter than its predecessor.

Just to remind you about the features of the new camera, the GF2 comes equipped with a 12-megapixel sensor, and is capable of recording full HD movies at 1920 x 1080 resolution at 60i (NTSC)/50i (PAL) in AVCHD format.

The GF2 comes with a redesign that moves some of the physical controls on to the three-inch touchscreen display.

While the UK online retailers currently list the camera as in stock, major American sites such as Amazon, B&H and J&R is saying that the GF2 is unavailable. In the US, the camera is known to sell with a price tag of about $700 with the 14mm, f2.5 pancake lens. However, the 14-42mm kit, 14-140mm kit and body-only prices aren’t yet available at the moment.
