The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2: The Unofficial Quintessential Guide by Matsumoto and Roullard

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2: The Unofficial Quintessential Guide by Brian Matsumoto and Carol F. Roullard is a new book from Rocky Nook that provides a wealth of information and professional insights for owners of this powerful HD camera.

In the book, the authors explore and explain the features and capabilities of the G2 camera in detail, as they cover everything from the basic features of the camera to numerous advanced photographic applications. This informative text is illustrated with example images throughout.

Lessons in the book include how to:

  • Control the most basic camera functions – focus and exposure
  • Navigate the camera’s menu system
  • Achieve a range of artistic effects using various camera settings
  • Use the camera’s automated controls, and how to override those controls to obtain better exposure
  • Use the G2 in its video mode to obtain HD videos
  • Post-process images and videos on a computer

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 is the first interchangeable lens system camera in the Micro Four Thirds standard with touch-control shooting. The mirrorless design enhances the camera’s versatility beyond that of most digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras. With appropriate adapters, it can use virtually any manufacturer’s manual focus, legacy lenses. It is smaller than a typical DSLR in both size and weight, and retains automatic focusing while recording videos – a capability missing in many DSLR cameras.
