  • Excerpt: Panasonic Lumix G1 is a Micro Four Thirds DSLR-like camera with interchangeable lens; it's far smaller than a conventional DSLR but has features to fight its corner. So how does the Lumix G1 fare...

  • Conclusion: Panasonic Lumix G1 Micro Four Thirds camera system The media warmly and enthusiastically received the introduction of the Micro FourThirds system. And although the announcement was made by Panasonic and Olympus together, Panasonic managed to surprise the entire world press by presenting the world's first Micro FourThirds camera at the last Photokina 2008 show. The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G1 became the talk of this event.

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G1 Review

Digitaltrends
8 December 2008
  • Conclusion: It’s clear to us this really a version 1.0 camera. It does what it was intended to do, but we wanted more – and less – of some things. We wanted video capability and more lenses to choose from. We also wanted less noise at higher ISOs. And we definitely wanted less when it came to the overall size and price. $799 for a first-gen camera is a lot—especially when you can purchase a lightweight Olympus E-420 with a lens for 500 bucks.
  • Pros: First Micro Four Thirds camera; high quality LiveView finder; good 3-inch screen
  • Cons: Expensive; not many lens available w/out an adapter; live View finder is a bit disconcerting

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 SLR

AskMen.com
21 October 2008
  • Summary: Last month in Tokyo, Matsushita (a part of Panasonic as of October 1, 2008) unveiled the Lumix DMC-G1 SLR , which is the world's smallest digital single lens reflex (SLR) camera to date. This high-performance model will be both light weight and simple to operate, and it should serve as a great point of entry for people who are ready to switch over from compact to SLR cameras.

The DMC-G1K from Panasonic shares more in common with a digital SLR camera than a typical compact digital camera.

  • Summary: It's not a traditional D-SLR but the LUMIX DMC-G1K is definitely as versatile as one, and much more compact. It's easy to use, and its images are very sharp. Give it a go if you want something that won't compromise your mobility yet will give you the flexibility to change lenses.
  • Pros: Compact body, interchangeable lenses, accurate electronic viewfinder, fast performance, stacks of settings to play with
  • Cons: Slightly dull colour tones, no video mode

  • Conclusion: The G1 is an excellent attempt at combining the features of compact and DSLR cameras, with only the high launch price spoiling an otherwise superb package.

Panasonic Lumix G1 Review

ePHOTOzine
5 November 2008
  • Summary: I first heard about the Micro Four Thirds while talking to an Olympus advocate at the Adobe CS4 launch and I have to admit I was sceptical. Having used the DMC-G1 and seen the results of the images, I'm really impressed.
  • Pros: Smaller and lighter, Best viewfinder around, Articulated screen, Good noise control from low to mid point, Nice colour rendition, No over sharpening found on the LX3
  • Cons: Focus dial is unnecessary, Fn button isn't needed

  • Summary: The world's first Micro Four Thirds System camera with features and performance to appeal to photo enthusiasts.Panasonic's new Lumix DMC-G1 is the first model in an entirely new camera system, officially known as 'Micro Four Thirds' but sometimes dubbed 'EVIL (Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens)' to provide a better picture of the difference between it and a DSLR (which it resembles superficially).

Panasonic Lumix DMC G1 Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Met de Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G1 staan we aan de vooravond van een nieuwe reeks camera’s gebaseerd op het Micro Four Thirds systeem. In theorie een heel interessante ontwikkeling die met de LUMIX G1 laat zien dat de praktijk er op zijn minst net zo interessant uitziet. De camera heeft ons overtuigd van zijn kunnen en het is naar mijn mening zeer de moeite waard om kennis te maken met dit toestel.
