The GX-20's built-in OIS gives you clear, steady pictures in low light situations in which the shutter speed is slow, or even if you're using a lens with no anti-shake function.
A Safe Optical Mechanism with Fast Response Time
The GX-20's OIS prevents shake by means of a center plate positioning that moves in the opposite direction of shaking. This feature ensures detailed, vivid pictures even in conditions of less-than-desirable illumination.
The Dual Dust Removal Function ensures a cleaner and clearer image.

Anti-Dust Coating: The world looks even better through a clean window
One tiny speck of dust on the image sensor can become a major flaw in your pictures. The GX-20's image sensor features a special coating that resists dust and protects picture quality. When the GX-20 is turned on, the image sensor vibrates to remove any dust that might be present. This effectively shakes off even the finest dust that may have rested on the sensor, resulting in flawless, clean pictures.

Treasure your best memory with GX-20's diverse functions
Your preciously happy today will be your beautiful tomorrow. GX-20 is now presenting more diverse functions to preserve your beautiful memories clearly and gorgeously.
Crystal clear view from the pentaprism viewfinder
In SLR digital cameras, 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 filed of view with 0.95X magnification ensuring a bright and clear view.
Fast imaging process, excellent color representation
GX-20 utilizes a cutting-edge semiconductor processor and Samsung high-speed DDR2 memory to realize 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 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.
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 focussing 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.
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.
'My Settings' function makes operations easier and more convenient.
The 'My Settings' mode on the GX-20 lets you pre-select the modes you prefer to use most often. Modes such as Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority, Auto, Program, Manual and others. Additionally in the P(program) mode, you can choose either Front E-Dial or Rear E-Dial, and you can use the functions faster and more easily with the Green Button to automatically adjust exposure during manual photography.
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.
Powerful AE exposure mode that readily adjusts ISO sensitivity
Brand-New and upgraded exposure mode enables users to control shutter speed, aperture, and even ISO sensitivity. (100~3200, setting available up to 6400)
Sv: Sensitivity priority
Automatically adjusts aperture and shutter speed settings according to ISO levels
TAv: Shutter-speed & aperture priority
Automatically controls ISO sensitivity to get an appropriate exposure value according to the user?s shutter speed and aperture settings.
Simply turning a dial level enables you to check the depth and ISO of a photo without consuming any memory. You can easily predict how your photos look with the Digital preview.
X Synchro contact socket
By using a cable, the external flash can be connected to the built-in X Synchro socket that synchronizes the lighting of flash and the shutter speed, which creates clear and distinct images regardless of where you take photos.
Direct RAW file editing and JPEG conversion
Converting from RAW file into JPEG is not a big deal to anybody from beginners to experts with Converter 2.0, GX-20's built-in RAW converter. No more complicating PC interaction to convert RAW files to JPEG format.
A single dead pixel can be thoroughly screened by the Auto pixel mapping once or twice a year. Take vivid photos 365 days a year with GX-20?s pixel mapping that corrects bad pixels on the spot automatically.
Add variety of effects with Digital filter
Creative in-camera digital filters edit your photos into HDR(High dynamic range), Black-and-white, Sepia and Soft. Plus, Illustration and Slim have been added as new functions. Especially with the HDR effect, a full range of light from the bright to Dark can be expressed excellently.
