“Continuing to push the boundaries, Panasonic’s new DMC-G2 adopts touch-control shooting for the first time in an interchangeable lens system camera. AF is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the large, 460,000-dot LCD. You can even release the shutter using a single touch.”

Onto the menus: ISO100 to ISO6400, the shooting screen with touch-shutter and touch-quick menu, the recording menu with 4:3, 3:2, 16:9, and 1:1 aspect ratios, and the My Menu screen that remembers settings you have changed.
