Removable electronic viewfinder(LCD viewfinder)
GX100 boasts a unique removable electronic viewfinder. Directly linked to the focal distance and viewfinder image, parallax is eliminated, letting you zoom and frame your subjects with the feel of a single-lens reflex camera. Naturally shooting information is displayed in the same manner as on the LCD monitor. The field of view is 100 percent. Its tilt mechanism*1 permits low-angle shots, for even more photographic creativity.

Photos can be displayed as one frame, three frames or indexed contents, up to a maximum of 16 at a time. Display settings include marker displays, a histogram for visual display of light distribution, a grid guide (in the shooting mode), convenient for confirming parallel alignment and a highlight display (in the display mode) that darkens display over bright areas.
