Overview

Already a hybrid, the Panasonic DMC-G2 takes it one step further.

The DMC-G2 is a cross between a compact and a digital SLR camera and it includes a feature that also makes it like a smartphone: a touch-screen LCD.

This is the first mirrorless DSLR to include such a feature and you can use it to change camera settings, take pictures, or review images just by touching or swiping your finger on the LCD.

To take this feature even further, the LCD flips out from the camera body and rotates, letting you take pictures from just about any angle.
