The G2 is the world's first system camera with touch-control shooting. Just touch the LCD to indicate the subject, and the G2 focuses on it instantly. Choose from four AF modes to match the conditions. You can also operate the auto focus and shutter release at the same time with just a touch, for a completely new way to shoot. The G2's 4/3-type 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor offers the best of both worlds the superior image quality of a CCD sensor, and the lower power consumption of a CMOS sensor. The large 3.0-inch LCD rotates 180° horizontally and 270° vertically, making it easy for you to capture dynamic shots from extreme angles without getting into an awkward position. The hybrid G2 lets you take both high quality photos and HD movies. You can shoot breathtaking HD (1280 720) movies in AVCHD Lite (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264).
