  • 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.

  • Summary: All the ease of use of a compact camera, all the quality of an SLR – the first Micro Four Thirds camera could be the start of something, er, small. A miniature marvel, lacking only video capture.

  • Summary: As the debut model of a brand new standard, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 is a rare, exciting and brave camera. Like all debut models it exclusively represents the benefits of the new standard and its relevance in the market, while also having to work hard against established rivals. Having used the Lumix G1 for some time now, we’d say it succeeds strongly in both respects.
  • Pros: Compact but comfortable body., Large and detailed viewfinder image., Flip-out screen with detailed image., Easy to use and good user interface.
  • Cons: Viewfinder noisy and jerky in low light., AF restrictions with Four Thirds lenses., Battery life below most DSLRs., No movie mode.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 digital camera review

  • Excerpt: We hesitate to put Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 in the DSLR category of cameras, because it technically isn't. However, it seems to make sense to place this camera in amongst those that it competes with to an extent in terms of features, performance and price. In a traditional SLR, you view through the lens, via a prism and mirror which retracts when you snap off a shot.
  • Pros: Compact body, ease of control, great performance, articulating screen
  • Cons: New camera system means less accessories, those with big hands might find it too small

  • Summary: An excellent, affordable inbetweener, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 stands megapixel to megapixel with more illustrious DSLRs, without overdoing it on the bulk.
  • Pros: Compact build but packing plenty of heat.
  • Cons: No video-capturing mode.

  • Summary: Introducing a completely new kind of camera when nearly everyone now owns a camera of some kind, and at at time of global economic turmoil, is certainly a brave move by Panasonic. On paper the Lumix DMC-G1 makes perfect sense in a lot of ways, and it happily gets most things spot-on, unlike the majority of first-generation products. Users looking to move-up from a point-and-shoot compact should definitely consider the G1.

Panasonic Lumix DMC G1 Review

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.

  • Excerpt: A 4/3-os rendszert használó tükörreflexes fényképezőgép gyártók (Olympus, Panasonic) már régebben bejelentették, hogy egy kisebb fényképezőgép méreteket lehetővé tevő rendszert fejlesztenek a szenzorméret megtartásával. Ezzel gyakorlatilag egy új fényképezőgép-kategóriát hívnak életre, aminek első gyermeke a nálunk járt Panasonic DMC-G1 fényképezőgép. Nyilván annak is megvan az oka, hogy ezt a lépést a Panasonic tette meg.
  • Pros: kis méret, egyszerű és átlátható kezelhetőség, cserélhetó objektív.
  • Cons: a képstabilizátort az objektívekbe építették, nam a vázba, nincs videó mód.
