Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 Review

What Digital Camera
11 December 2008
  • Summary: The Micro Four Thirds system will definitely have an impact on the photography world, not least the Panasonic Lumix G1. The reduction in size that the new system allows means interchangeable-lens cameras are going to get smaller, and as such will appeal to a wider audience. What?
  • Pros: 3in articulating LCD, overall design and build quality, compact size
  • Cons: Price at odds with specification, over-sensitive LVF eye sensors, image flatness

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.
  • 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

  • Excerpt: Features & handling The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 digital camera uses the Micro FourThirds system and offers a 100%-coverage digital Live View viewfinder. Unlike a conventional optical viewfinder, this system shows you an image that's been processed by the camera's sensor.

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

1 June 2009
  • 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

  • Excerpt: The G1 is the most unusual and exciting digital camera we've seen for a while. It's made from a mixture of SLR and compact camera technology, and promises the quality of an SLR without the bulk. As such, it could be the ideal camera for discerning photographers on the go.

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
