Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 is the latest Micro Four Thirds model to arrive to the Panasonic family, where it will boast of a newly integrated 16.05-megapixel Live MOS sensor in addition to a totally redesigned Venus Engine that is said to deliver clear, crisp images in both photo and video recording. It will boast of a compact, lightweight body complete with a built-in flash, letting you carry it around without weighing you down in any way. I guess this is a natural progression of the Micro Four Thirds family.
As for the redesigned Venus Engine, it is said to come with an exceptionally advanced signal processing capability, delivering clear, crisp images in both photo and video recording moments. It can detect smooth areas or edges in photos, while making adjustments to the strength of noise reduction (stronger for smooth portion, milder for edge portion) so that object descriptiveness can be maintained. You will be able to pick up the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 in black, white and silver colors alongside different kit options, although pricing and availability have yet to be determined. [Press Release]
