Amazon has a great Gold Box deal today: The Panasonic DMC-G5KK 16 MP Compact System Camera with 14-42mm Zoom Lens and 3-Inch LCD (Black) is almost 60% off and is just $299.99. You will save $400 by taking advantage of this deal, today only.
The reviews on this are incredible and the price is unbeatable. You will get DSLR quality pics with this camera at a fraction of the price.
I spent a ton of time researching this type of mirror-less camera last year when we needed a new camera. I had been borrowing my mother-in-law’s DSLR regularly and loved the quality of the pics but not the bulkiness of the camera. When they came out with this type of camera with no mirror, it was the perfect hybrid. It’s easy to transport (we packed ours all over Europe this summer with three kids) and takes incredible pictures. The speed is amazing. We ended up with the Nikon J1 which we have loved but if I didn’t already have that, this Lumix is the camera I would buy at this price.
Here are a few of the specs:
- AVCHD Full HD (1080p),ISO Sensitivity Auto: 160-12800
- 16M digital Live MOS sensor+Venus Engine 7FHD
- Engine 7FHD 3, 920K dots Free-angle touch LCD
- Full time AF, Full HD video
- 920K dots Free-angle touch LCD
