First test shots: Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G2, LUMIX DMC-G10

We road test Panasonic's latest interchangeable lens cameras: LUMIX DMC-G2 and LUMIX DMC-G10

Panasonic has released two new Micro Four Thirds-based cameras that are aimed at point-and-shoot consumers looking to step up to something better, or professional users looking for something less bulky yet as capable as a digital SLR. The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G2 replaces the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G1 in the company's interchangeable lens camera line-up, while the Panasonic LUMIX DMX-G10 is a lower-cost option that will compete alongside the likes of the Olympus PEN E-PL1 and the Samsung NX10.

We had the opportunity to road (and air) test both these cameras on a recent helicopter trip to the Crooked River vineyard in Gerringong courtesy of Panasonic. The following photos have been shot with either the G2 or the G10 and have only been cropped to fit this page. The colours and luminance are just as the camera captured them.

This shot was taken with the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G10 using the built-in monochrome mode.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
