LUMIX PRO has been created with the user in mind and is designed to provide a framework for support of photographers and videographers of all levels of experience.
The tiered and modular nature of the programme ensures that it is accessible to a broad range of LUMIX users. Recognising that the creative is as individual as what they shoot, LUMIX PRO has been designed to adapt as their requirements flex.
A range of domestic and global maintenance and repair service benefits will be available, including complementary maintenance such as Sensor, EVF or body cleaning or a lens calibration*. Members will also have access to expedited and guaranteed turnaround time, or access to loan equipment when turnaround time cannot be met.

To ensure that they can continue working, photographers that travel will receive the applicable benefits for their level of membership in countries that offer the repair service.
