LCD attachment on the Panasonic GM5

The LCD screen on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 is fixed to the body. This solid attachment means that the connection between camera body and rear screen is very sturdy and the LCD is less likely to be damaged, for example, during a camera tumble than a hinged design. On the other hand, the fixed screen design does not make it possible to articulate the LCD for better visibility during odd-angle shots.

In terms of size and resolution, the rear LCD of the Panasonic GM5 measures 3.0 inches and offers a resolution of 921,000 dots. The panel is touch sensitive.

It is worthwhile pointing out that the GM5 has a touchscreen. Touch control can be particularly helpful, for example, when trying to adjust the focus point.
