Panasonic GM5 Sensor Review and Test Results

DxOMark published their sensor review and test results for the Panasonic GM5 mirrorless camera with Micro Four Thirds image sensor.

Panasonic GM5 sensor review and test results shows the camera scored a point of 66 and positioned in the middle when compared with hybrid cameras featuring an APS-C or FourThirds sensor.

The GM5’s score of 66 ranks 137th for all sensors and offers no improvement over its predecessor the GM1. Both cameras utilise the same 16Mp CMOS sensor, so the advantage of the latest model lies in its built-in EVF and hotshoe.

From DxOMark Review :

There’s no discernable improvement in image quality over the previous GM1 model however, which is still available to buy and for a little less money, too. With a DxOMark Sensor Score of 66 the GM5 certainly puts in a respectable performance for image quality too, but if it’s the best hybrid image quality you’re after, scores from the APS-C sensors found in Sony and Samsung hybrids remain the ones to beat.

The Panasonic GM5 offers a 16MP Four Thirds sensor in a point-and-shoot sized camera body equipped with a Micro Four Thirds lens mount.

Built on the successes of the GM1, the Panasonic GM5 provides some enthusiast touches like a built-in 1.2m dot equivalent EVF and hot shoe. Also included is built-in Wi-Fi, 1080/60p HD video, 3″ 921k dot touch LCD and a bundled external flash.
