Panasonic LUMIX GF1 Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
16 September 2010
  • Conclusion: To say that the Panasonic Lumix GF1 was a pleasure to use is something of an understatement. Fitted with the 20mm pancake lens, it is not only pocketable but delivers image quality of the highest order and the lens is fast enough to not require a major ISO boost even in dim lighting.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 Micro Four Thirds Camera Review

Futurelooks
30 August 2010
  • Summary: The GF1 is a surprisingly good camera given it's size and weight. It certainly holds its own against other cameras in a similar price range namely the ones from its Micro Four Thirds partner Olympus.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, especially in RAW, Comparatively easy to use, clearly labeled buttons and simple menu navigation, Great rear LCD image quality with useful digital zoom manual focus mode, High build quality, solid feel to constuction, Small, compact design. Not pocketable but close., Look...
  • Cons: No in-body image stabilization, Still very limited lens and accessory selection, Slightly expensive, especially considering the $135US optional electronic viewfinder, Disappointing JPEG output. Shoot RAW whenever possible.

Panasonic GF1 Review

  • Summary: In short, I love the GF1. It is my current pick of the mirrorless camera genre. Sure, the GF1 is not going to replace anyone’s 5D Mark II or D700 anytime soon. For casual photos though, it’s tough to beat for image quality, functionality and portability. The GF1 easily earns my high recommendation.

  • Excerpt: Panasonic announced a new Micro Four Thirds camera, the Lumix DMC -GF1. This follows the earlier G1 and GH1 models. The Micro Four Thirds format uses the standard Four Thirds sensor size, which is one quarter the size (area) of a full frame sensor, resulting in a 2x “digital multiplier” factor.

About
27 February 2010
  • Summary: During my recent review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 DIL camera, I found a lot of things to like. The Lumix GF1's mirror-less design makes it smaller than DSLR models, its image quality is outstanding, it has a large and sharp LCD, and it offers a lot of versatility for intermediate users.
  • Pros: Mirror-less DIL GF1 offers an interesting look versus DSLR cameras, Image quality is very good, Manual focus "zoom" feature works extremely well, Camera construction is very sturdy
  • Cons: Camera seems a little expensive, Learning to find all of the GF1's features will take some time, Placement of popup flash is very awkward, No optical viewfinder

Camera Test: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1

Pop Photo
11 January 2010
  • Excerpt: With any new technology, it takes time to work out the kinks. And while the flurry of coverage-and humanity's ever-shrinking attention span-might make it seem as though Micro Four Thirds has been around awhile, it's still quite new.

  • Summary: Panasonic's newest dSLR-like interchangeable lens system camera, the Lumix GF1, has the ability to capture professional quality images, HD video and feature Full-Time Live View, all in a body that is much smaller than a standard dSLR camera.
