see and feel a bright, beautiful world with the GX-20
The world is brighter and more vivid that you can see, and it’s more beautiful than you can feel. With a 14.6 megapixel APS-C size CMOS image sensor, you’ll see an entirely new world. Excellent out-focusing allows you to capture an amazingly vivid image, and superior definition means you’ll always get the ultimate brightness.
OIS image sensor for perfect stabilisation - built in optical anti-shake function
The GX-20’s OIS prevents shake by means of a centre plate positioning that moves in the opposite direction of shaking. This feature ensures detailed, vivid pictures even in conditions of less-than-desirable illumination.
fast imaging process, excellent colour representation
GX-20 utilises a cutting-edge semiconductor processor and SAMSUNG high-speed DDR2 memory to realise fast, high-quality imaging. The DSP enables more natural definition, a wide range of gradation, continuous shooting, and a prompt response to dynamic subjects.
precise auto focus with 11 focus points
The GX-20 measures 11 focus points to include subjects at different distances. Specifically, 9 central focus points adjust the focus accurately from any direction - vertically and horizontally. Two additional left and right focus points give the GX-20 great focusing flexibility. Also provided is the focus point converting function (by which a user can choose the location of the Auto Focus subject) and the super-impose function for adding a red highlight at the focus point.
multi-exposure shooting (2 - 9 frames)
The GX-20 provides a multi-exposure shooting function that shows 2 - 9 photos on one screen while shooting.
This facility allows difficult tasks such as editing and digital collages to be handled much more easily.
more vivid resolution, more exquisite details
With 14.6 megapixels in an APS-C size (23.4 x 15.5mm), the GX-20 offers the greatest resolution in its class. Further, its sturdy 5.0µm-size pixels - the smallest in their class - ensure the most vibrant image around.
crystal clear view from the pentaprism viewfinder
In SLR digital camera, images that go through the lens are reflected to the viewfinder. The vividness and visibility ratio of what you see are determined by how to use the reflective device. In conjunction with the Glass Pentaprism which is conventionally applied to advanced DSLR cameras, the GX-20’s broad and clear view offers a remarkable 95% of field of view with 0.95X magnification ensuring a bright and clear view.
precise white-balance adjustment enables more natural expression
While most existing white-balancing functions use only standard values according to the situation, the GX-20 provides delicate, 100K step colour temperature adjustments which give a more accurate white-balance control.
large 2.7'' LCD monitor
Viewfinders are the method of choice for DSLR cameras. As such, LCD displays have rarely been used, or have only been of small size (1.8 to 2.0 inches). Superior to the GX-10’s 2.5" LCD, the GX-20 features a new 2.7" high-resolution LCD monitor providing an ultra-wide viewing angle covering all directions. The 230,000-pixel high-resolution LCD guarantees clear image preview as well as convenience in using the menu with an outstanding visibility.
