Panasonic has announced it will no longer refer to its mirrorless cameras as "Compact System Cameras", instead introducing the Digital Single Lens Mirrorless moniker, which it will use worldwide.
The change will coincide with the August release of the Lumix DMC-G5 camera, which sports a newly designed 16.05-megapixel Live MOS Micro Four Thirds sensor, as well as the new Venus Engine VII FHD image processing sensor.
The G5 offers a sensitivity range of ISO160 to ISO12,800, and uses a high-speed autofocus system called Light Speed AF, which offers a "wide range of AF modes, including multiple-area AF, Face Detection and AF Tracking", says Panasonic.
The G5 can shoot images at 6fps at full resolution, or 20fps at a lower resolution. The camera can also record Full HD movies at 1080/50p with stereo sound, which can then be output using the AVCHD progressive and MP4 codecs.
Panasonic's latest Micro Four Thirds camera features a three-inch free-angle LCD, and has an electronic viewfinder.
The DMC-G5 will retail from £699 with a 14-42mm lens.
