Secaucus, N.J. - Moving within 30 days of their ship
dates, Panasonic's Lumix G2 and G10
cameras were publicly issued suggested retails for the first time, Monday.

The latest additions to the company's G-series digital singles lens
(DSL) Micro Four Thirds cameras will ship in late May in a choice of red, blue
and black colors. Lumix DMC-G10 models will carry an $600 suggested retail and
DMC-G2 models will be priced at $800.

The G2, which replaces the G1, is billed as the first digital
interchangeable-lens-system camera with a movable LCD that allows for touch control.

The intuitive touch-control shooting elevates the camera's
operability, letting the user adjust autofocus (AF) by touching the subject on
the large 3-inch 460,000-dot high-resolution LCD.

The Lumix G2 shoots 720p HD video in the AVCHD Lite compression
format.

Key features include an AF tracking system with touchscreen
control to identify subjects to target in a scene, multi-area AF for setting a
group of AF points in a composition, and a dedicated video-record button.

The G10 is presented as an affordable, high-performance compact
digital interchangeable-lens camera. It records 720p HD video and offers the
option of using the JPEG, QVGA, VGA and WVGA video formats.

Both models come equipped with the Lumix G Vario 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6
ASPH/MEGA OIS lenses that are a 35mm camera equivalent range of 28-84mm.
