Manufacturing defect.

laura, Amazon
12 January 2015
  • Summary: I loved this camera until the rear display began to delaminate. It appears others have had this problem too. After contacting Panasonic I was told that they would not offer any remedy.

Never, never, even to try.

lesterix, Ebay
1 July 2014
  • Summary: This was my worst experience with this camera. I bought this camera, because I was interested in mirrorless system, specifically micro4/3. After do some test and compare to Fujifilm X-E2 camera, I became very disappointed. Picture quality not accepted. Menu is a mess.

Disposable camera

Paul F, Amazon
20 August 2013
  • Summary: This took pretty good pictures while it was working, for all of one year and 10 days. It now gives an error message "unable to detect lens, turn camera off then on again". Of course, this does nothing. And of course, the camera is now 10 days out of the one year warranty.

Antil Glare screen is disintegrating.

Mr. J. M. Melbow, Amazon
19 February 2013
  • Summary: I received the Lumix DMC GX1 at the end of January 2012. The camera was always kept in a camera bag and treated carefully. I was shocked when I took it out of the bag at the weekend to see that the screen looked like it was disintegrating.

CD not iMac friendly

Kanestian, Amazon
5 November 2012
  • Summary: I returned this camera because the instruction disc was not compatible with my iMac. Although that problem was fairly common ten years ago, I have not experienced it in quite some time and everything of that sort now comes with the CDs compatible with both PCs and macs.

Great camera, when it works. Terrible terrible customer service

Dani J. Page "Dani J Page", Amazon
28 February 2012
  • Summary: I should get a few things in the open first: I haven't actually gotten to play with the RAW images yet. There's still no RAW codec for OSX yet. I don't know who's fault that is. I do know that the included software is rather pathetic and slow. As in, 10 hours to convert 200 pictures.

It had to be too good to be true

Nicola H, Amazon
6 October 2014
  • Summary: BEWARE! It had to be too good to be true. The camera's only operational language is JAPANESE - there is no language selection key in the menu. These products are clearly not meant for the UK market.

bitterly disappointed

S. WOODRUFF "alright", Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: bitterly disappointed by this. I had seen great photos taken with the model. What I hadn't realised is the huge distortion the lens produces. If you opt for jpeg pictures this is corrected by the camera, but whatever settings I chose the colours were washed out, had poor contrast and lacked any...

The value only

James Murray, Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: I'm disappointed and surprised at Amazon's blatant misrepresentation with this deal. 12.40pm sat 24th Nov 12.40pm (Black Friday promotion still live) and they've just dropped their online price for this camera from the BF original price of £634.26 to the correct price of £479.78 - they didn't even...

Black Friday Deal Price? nonsense?

Li, Amazon
25 April 2012
  • Summary: £634.26? getting this camera body with a H-PS14042E-S Power Zoom Lens, which is smaller and more expensive than the H-FS014042E Lens is only £562.49. even the H-FS014042E Lens is £203.99 in the Panasonic website. So, How did you manage to make it £634.26? By making the Body price £430.27?
