Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 - Test shots: Zoom, Contrast and Colour
Here are some general test shots taken with the GH2 and lenses as stated to give an idea of performance ability when it comes to image quality, dynamic range, colour rendition and the focal range of the respective optics.
An image taken with the supplied 14-140mm f/4-5.8 zoom lens handheld at maximum telephoto setting. Bags of detail visible in the duck's feathers and nice natural colours too.
By contrast an extreme wideangle image again taken with the GH2 and 14-140mm f/4-5.8 zoom. Good edge to edge sharpness and any barrel distortion is well hidden if present at all.
An elegant subject, bathed in soft golden sunlight calls for the 'elegant' 'My Color' mode option. A sympathetic rendition we feel - here also utilising the 100-300mm for some close cropping - and one combination that has worked very well.
Another timeless subject - the white picket fence. Time to try out the GH2's retro 'My Color' mode, the camera equipped with the 100-300mm zoom, for a effectively other-worldly abstract.
A couple of examples of the richness of colour achievable when selecting the saturation boosting creative option of 'Expressive' mode on the GH2. In each case the subject is flattered by the enhancement without it straying too far into the realm of the unnatural.
