The Panasonic Lumix G5 Mirrorless Digital Camera Kit with 14-42mm Lens Black 45-150mm Lens from B&H combines the versatile Lumix G5 mirrorless camera with two lenses that combine to provide a full range of focal lengths.
The Lumix G5 Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera houses a 16.05MP Live MOS sensor and the Venus Engine image processor for detailed high-resolution imaging in both stills mode and Full HD 1080 video. The advanced signal processing of the Venus Engine further improves image sharpness, and Contrast AF with Touchscreen focusing is fast and accurate. A continuous shooting rate of 6 fps in full resolution and Silent Shutter mode are also supported by the G5. A bright 1,440k-dot Electronic Viewfinder offers Live View composition and a 920k-dot LCD monitor with 100% field of view is also available. The LCD is fully tiltable for better composition at odd-angles and also offers touch screen capability for touch AF and basic shooting and menu control. Both the EVF and LCD can be illuminated at the same time. HD video also provides Touch AF and is enabled by a one-touch button on the camera's top plate. Full resolution photos can be taken during video recording.
The Lumix G5 is compatible with the full line-up of G series lenses and is bundled here with the 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 lens with a 35mm focal length equivalency of 28-84mm. It provides wide-angle to short telephoto capability for everyday shooting and MEGA O.I.S. image stabilization for clearer images in low-light. An inner focusing system and stepping motor provide smooth and silent autofocus. The black LUMIX G Vario 45-150mm f/4.0-5.6 ASPH lens also includes a stepping motor for smooth, almost silent AF, which is ideal when shooting video. Its 35mm focal length equivalency is 90-300mm which offers a wide range of telephoto possibilities. Optical Image Stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake to create clearer images, even at the lens' longest focal lengths and the lens's compact form factor makes it a fine travel and everyday lens.
