More compact than a D-SLR...

Stann, Amazon
7 February 2015
  • Summary: Panasonic's Lumix DMC-GF1 offers a D-SLR experience in a body that's not much bigger than a superzoom camera. Pros: + More compact than a D-SLR. + Fast focusing speeds. + Extremely sharp images. + 720p30 HD video capture. + Built-in flash. + HDMI port with CEC support.

  • Excerpt: Still testing. Bought it used, but in mint condition.  But, it came without the 20mm I wanted. Nice images, but hard to find perfect settings for jpeg's.

  • Excerpt: Good image quality, lots of physical controls, solid construction, small and reasonably light. My only serious gripe is poor image quality with high ISO – at ISO 400 the noise is clearly visible, at ISO 800 it usually ruins the picture, even if converted to BW, where the noise is generally more...

  • Excerpt: There is little that I can add that hasn't already been said. The camera is nearly perfect. If it had been blessed with a larger buffer and a sensor that wasn't noisy as hell, it would have been a legendary product, destined for the halls of greatness.

Excellent semi-compact option for someone who knows DSLRs. Not for newbies

  • Summary: The rave reviews and the fact that this camera with the 20mm pancake lens goes for a premium on ebay says it all. So, since there are so many positives (with which I agree), I'm going to focus on the Cons here.

GF1, better camera than the GF2?

arborrider08, Ebay
16 March 2011
  • Summary: This is the 2nd GF1 body I have purchased. Really enjoy using the GF1. With the Panasonic replacement not what I was hoping for it was time to search for a 2nd USA warranty body. Image quality with decent quality lens is good to excellent. I prefer the "old school" ergonomics of dials & buttons.

Another great Lumix camera

  • Summary: I bought this one to update my old Lumix 12x optical zoom, which had too much dust in the lens to continue using. I use the camera for safari photos, job site documentation, filming and shooting the baby, and as a portable document scanner.

Great camera

Angela "AL", Amazon

  • Summary: [...] Overall, great little camera. Lacks color vibrancy, but nothing that can't be fixed with a little editing. If you're a photographer, this is a good micro 4/3. If you're just taking pictures like me, expect a little desaturation in your photo compared to what you see on the amazing LCD screen.

EOSThree, Photography Review
7 August 2010
  • Summary: The purchase price was for the 14-45 Kit. Panasonic took the features of their Micro Four Thirds cameras and smashed them down into a compact size. This makes for a nicely sized body with a decent size sensor. It's a little larger than a high end compact, but the IQ more than makes up for the bulk.
  • Pros: Image quality. It's good, very good. It is a little better than my G9 at low ISOs, but at high ISOs it blows it away. Very useable at 1600., Size, it's nearly as small as a high end compact camera with the pancake lens attached. It's definitely bulkier with any of the zooms attached but still muc...
  • Cons: Placements. One of the weaknesses I've found in the controls is the placement of AF/AE lock button, my thumb consistently found this button when I wasn't trying to. Not a big deal, but frustrating at times., Histogram. The GF-1 has a live histogram, this is nice. Unfortunately it's not reading th...
