The GF2 is a 12 Megapixel Micro Four-Thirds Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera. It’s basically a DSLR in a compact sized camera. With the 14mm f/2.5 lens, the GF2 is small enough to easily fit into a jacket pocket or purse. Size is very important to me since I’ve found that the bigger the camera, the more it stays home. What good is a product if you don’t use it? I take the GF2 with me everywhere and it’s always available to take that spontaneous photo or video.
The image quality of the GF2 shocks me every time I use it. People can’t believe this level of quality can be achieved with a compact digital camera. The 14mm f/2.5 wide angle lens is very good for taking low light shots and has a depth of field which allows me to blur the background or foreground and focus on the main object. Focusing is done with the 3″ touch display – just tap what I want to focus on and the camera does the rest. I can also take pictures by tapping on the screen.
The only downside is the price. The GF2 with the 14mm lens sells for $699 at Amazon.com. That’s not inexpensive by any means. However, for the blogger looking for the ultimate in quality and compactness, you won’t find a better digital camera than this one.
