Coinciding with the release of the Panasonic DMC-G2 is the sister camera DMC-G10 which is a scaled down version that still retains the same 12.1 megapixel Live MOS sensor and Venus Engine HD II. It is also equipped with a 460,000 dot 3 inch LCD sans the tilt/swivel and touch control option that is available in the DMC-G2 model. The view finder is also down graded with a lower resolution compared to the DMC-G2. DMC-G10 records 720 pixel HD movie in Motion JPEG and can accept the high capacity SDXC format cards. As a package this camera comes with a new 14-42mm kit lens complimenting the camera. It also features the iA (Intelligent Auto) which aids the photographer in shooting both photo and movies with automatic optimization.
