Review: Panasonic Lumix GX1

29 May 2012
  • Excerpt: No company is more responsible for establishing the Micro Four-Thirds category than Panasonic, which has been steadily dialing up the goodness in its Lumix compact system cameras since introducing its first model four years ago.
  • Pros: Zoom and manual-focus levers ingeniously placed right on the lens barrel. Love the barely-there dimensions — and price!
  • Cons: Zoom on the included 14-42-mm lens is twitchy and imprecise in video mode. Autofocus struggles in low light.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 Review

14 May 2012
  • Conclusion: For all its issues, we liked shooting with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1X. Sure it’s quirky, but like Sony’s NEX interface we’re sure it’ll become second nature over time. However, it’s too expensive to recommend unreservedly.
  • Pros: High-quality 16-megapixel stills and Full HD AVCHD movies, Extensive photo tweaks, Solid build with quality 3-inch touchscreen LCD
  • Cons: Just too expensive, Weird button arrangements, Noisy at high ISOs, Touchscreen should be more sensitive

13 April 2012
  • Summary: The GX1 packages external camera control points and a class-leading touchscreen interface in a classically-styled small form factor that produces the best image quality we've yet seen from a Micro Four Thirds camera.
  • Pros: Highest resolution Micro Four Thirds sensor, Very good quality JPEG high ISO images, Improved white balance and skin tone rendering (compared to GF1), Fast AF acquisition (particularly impressive in low light), Shooting is possible while the buffer's data is being written to the card, Well-implem...
  • Cons: Conservative metering tends towards underexposure, Fastest continuous shooting modes come at the expense of live view, 20fps SH mode yields poor image quality, Limited manual exposure controls for video recording, Continuous tracking performance suffers in low-light, low contrast scenarios, Minim...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1

PC Magazine
9 April 2012
  • Conclusion: At 16 megapixels, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 features the highest resolution of any Micro Four Thirds camera. It has some nice features that should appeal to enthusiasts, but it doesn't do well at the higher ISO settings and is bundled with a lens that can't keep up with the camera.
  • Pros: Compact size. Fast continuous shooting. Hot shoe and accessory port. Built-in flash.
  • Cons: Large, soft kit lens. Fixed rear LCD. Poor high ISO performance. Pricey.

Sibling pedigree

  • Excerpt: You might not consider a grip the most identifiable feature of a new camera, but for the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 ($699) , that’s exactly the case. The successor to the mighty successful GF1, a camera we’ve recommended time and time again here at GP, the GX1 certainly packs a wallop: 16 megapixel...

Camera Test: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 ILC

Pop Photo
1 March 2012
  • Summary: If you’re looking for a rangefinder-style ILC, the Lumix GX1 is an excellent choice. It easily outresolves Olympus’s Pen E-P3, and serves up more accurate colors. Novice RAW shooters might prefer the noise-reduction guidance Olympus provides with its defaults, but JPEG shooters will see very similar...

Panasonic Lumix GX1

9 February 2012
  • Conclusion: Image and video quality is good, with very little grain at ISO settings below 3200. It’s not quite up to the Sony NEX-5N’s beautifully noise-free standards in low light, but that’s its only flaw. STUFF SAYS This amazingly quick compact delivers in almost every aspect
