It shares much with the new Lumix DMC-G2, but its pared-down spec means that Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-G10 could be the most attractive Micro System Camera for enthusiasts on a budget

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 review


Price as reviewed:



Previously, we have found Panasonic’s 144-zone Intelligent Multiple evaluative metering to be very reliable, and it doesn’t disappoint in the G10.

Although it isn’t overly troubled by dark or bright areas in the scene, it is sensible to keep an eye on the histogram and dial in exposure compensation when necessary.

I found there were very few occasions when I needed to reduce the exposure, but as is often the case bright overcast skies can trick the G10 into slight underexposure.
