Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 review

Dynamic range

The sensor in the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 provided one of Panasonic's best dynamic range scores to date, at 11.3EV.

This is comparable with older DSLR models and compacts such as the Canon PowerShot S95, but is certainly a continued weakness due to the smaller sensor, given what larger ones are capable of.

However, there are some slight improvements in this model, and the inclusion of an HDR mode for the first time in a G-series camera sees Panasonic providing a workaround at least for those shooting higher-contrast scenes.
