There are some excellent Nikon cameras discounted on Amazon Australia for Prime Day 2021 (opens in new tab), but if you'd prefer a different sensor size to the APS-C and full-frame formats in those bodies, you could opt for a micro four thirds (MFT) camera and save even more dosh.

Not only are MFT cameras typically cheaper than other formats, they're also smaller and lighter, as are the lenses. So you're essentially getting a very travel-friendly package.

Currently it's just Olympus and Panasonic making MFT cameras, each supported by a plethora of some excellent lenses. And, thanks to Prime Day, you can now get yourself a really good Panasonic Lumix G-series snapper for a lot less than full price.

There's an official Panasonic Store on Amazon Australia, so you're getting local stock that also comes with the manufacturer's warranty.

While our attention is on the best G-series bargains currently available, you can also pick up a Lumix compact point-and-shoot camera (Lumix TZ90 and TZ95) or a bridge camera (Lumix FZ1000 and FZ80) are also discounted. Just head to the Panasonic Lumix deals page on Amazon (opens in new tab) to take a gander.

Note that all the Panasonic Lumix offers are for one day only, ending 11:59pm June 21.

Here are our picks of the best G-series offers:

Panasonic Lumix G100 (body only) | AU$1,099 AU$699 (opens in new tab) (save AU$400)

This micro four thirds format camera makes taking both stills and video real easy thanks to its intuitive control layout. It's perfect for anyone not too keen on the technicalities of what they're shooting but also maintains the advanced controls for skilled users. Suited well for vloggers, this snapper is pretty affordable now and supported by a wide range of lenses to choose from.

Panasonic Lumix GH5 (body only) | AU$1,690 AU$1,438.40 (opens in new tab) (save AU$2,51.60)

This is a brilliant all-rounder, whether you're into stills or capturing video. From a ultra-high res EVF to its 20.3MP sensor, this micro four thirds camera is a strong performer capable of 4K/60p video recording. There's also super-fast 6K/30p and 4K/60p stills modes, along with Light Speed AF. And let's not forget 5-axis IBIS too. All that for just AU$1,320 for the body alone is a great buy.

Panasonic Lumix GH5S (body only) | AU$2,599 AU$1,999 (opens in new tab) (save AU$600)

If you find yourself predominantly capturing video in low-light situations, then the GH5S is an excellent camera for you. Designed specifically for videography, there's a 10.2MP micro four thirds sensor under the hood, and dual native ISO for those low-light shoots. Dual card slots, 4K/60p video, and 6K/30p and 4K/60p stills mode completes this package.

Panasonic Lumix G9 (body only) | AU$1,545 AU$1,219 (opens in new tab) (save AU$326)

It might be getting on in age, but this micro four thirds camera has a pretty good spec sheet – 6.5 stops of image stabilisation, up to 60fps bursts, 4K 10-bit video capture, and pretty effective AF. At launch, back in 2017, it was pretty expensive, but it's now a lot more affordable. But take advantage of this Prime Day offer and you can get yourself a great MFT camera for a lot less.

Panasonic Lumix G7 twin lens kit | AU$1,199 AU$719 (opens in new tab) (save AU$480)

This twin-lens kit usually retails for AU$1,099 in Australia, but Amazon's Prime Day offer is one of the lowest prices we've seen. At this price, it's an absolute steal, particularly for anyone interested in getting into videography. Admittedly this almost six-year-old camera isn't going to keep up with the new models, but it's still very capable, offering 4K/30p video capture. How often can you snag a 4K camera twin lens kit for such a low price?
