Now enrolled with an innovated form of a 12.1megapixels CMOS optical sensor; it offers 0.09 seconds of contrast detection and an autofocus system, which is multipurpose since it reduces noise hindrance thus enhancing picture quality. Apart from this it’s shooting frequency ranges at a 4fps and has a modified 920K dot LCD, 3.0 inches in length. It consists of touch screen facilities allowing focusing and snapping at a dab of a finger. It weighs around 267g; is configured with an ISO of 12800, has inbuilt flash and a video aptitude of 1920×1080.
Unlike the DMC-GF5, its precursor, the DMC-GF3 offers the same assets though its adaptations are not as equipped as the GM-F5. It allows the user a similar image sensor of 12.1megapixels CMOS though its auto focusing and contrast capacities lie within a .18 seconds range. Further up it was installed with a 3.2fps shooting space, lacked touch screen facilities and had a mainframe of 460K dot LCD. It is slightly lighter weighing around 264g and an ISO range of 6400. Its video quality is similar to that found in DMC-GF5.
