Here's an awesome last-minute holiday present idea: the Panasonic Lumix GH2. The Micro Four Thirds camera is now shipping to buyers in the United States.

As promised at announcement time back in September, the body only-option retails for $899.95. In case you've forgotten about some of the specs on Panasonic's latest interchangeable lens camera, here's a refresher:

  • 16-megapixel Live MOS sensor
  • 3-inch TFT LCD touch screen (460K-dot resolution)
  • Records full HD 1080p movies in AVCHD
  • ISO range: 160 to 12,800
  • SD/SDHC/SDXC card slot
  • USB 2.0 and mini HDMI connectivity

This one ships within one to two weeks, so it might be a little late on the gift front. But it's the thought that counts, and this is one very nice thought.
