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. While the GX1 is very light — just 11.2 ounces — its 16-megapixel sensor has almost twice the real estate of the Nikon’s CX chip and boasts improved white and color balance. Only the Sony NEX beat it on image and video quality, and just barely.

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. Even with the quality lens and extensive photo-centric features, $849 is just too much compared to higher-end Olympus PENs and Sony NEX models. If you do find it at a competitive price, by all means, pick it up but at current levels, pass it by.
  • 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

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 Review

13 April 2012
  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is available in India at an MRP of Rs. 44,000. The camera does really well in terms of design, features and performance. When it comes to pricing, the camera is priced more or less on par with its rivals, such as the Nikon 1 V1. However, the latter does come equipped with a viewfinder, making it convenient for photographers to get that accurate composition. This is probably the only reason where the Nikon 1 V1 has an advantage over the GX1.

27 March 2012
  • Summary: A well-designed camera with an interface that creative photographers can customize to their liking, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 deserves serious consideration if you're looking for a modestly compact interchangeable-lens model.
  • Pros: Fast performance and excellent raw photo quality, combined with Panasonic's veteran touch-screen/direct-control hybrid interface, make the Lumix DMC-GX1 a strong ILC choice.
  • Cons: The new X-series PZ kit lens could use some design tweaks, and Panasonic's JPEG processing, though much better than before, could still use a little work.

Sibling pedigree

Gear Patrol
24 March 2012
  • 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 Live MOS sensor, Panasonic Venus Engine, 3″ touchscreen with new interface, revamped touch-autofocus system, 1920x1080p 60 fps HD AVCHD video with 0.09 second autofocus, ISO...

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 noise results from the two cameras.
