The much-anticipated Panasonic GX1 camera was revealed recently. For great reviews on cameras and features by Mike Browne take a look at Camera Reviews.
The camera, which has been in development for a while now, will be part of the G range. Panasonic has described the camera as a “premium compact system camera with a chic style, exceptional image quality and intuitive features”.
The 16-megapixel camera offers an ISO range of 100-12800 and auto-focus speed of 0.09 seconds. It also includes full HD 1080i video recording and a three-inch touch screen with 460k dots. It has a built-in pop-up flash and 4.2fps burst mode at full resolution.
Panasonic G series cameras can be used with a number of micro four-thirds lenses, including the new X Zoom lenses which were announced earlier this year.
The Panasonic Lumix GX1 comes in a choice of two colours raven black or gunmetal grey - and the camera is expected to be available in shops from mid-December, just in time for Christmas.
A review of the camera by Pocket Lint concludes that the reviewers were “very impressed”, saying: “The video is especially good, along with stereo sound, and we like the fact you now get the option to shoot in AVCHD or MPEG4, the latter being more universally supported.”
