Needs a lot of tweaking to get images almost as sharp as my Olympus E-P1

B. Kiacz, Amazon
24 June 2013
  • Summary: Like all micro 4/3rd's cameras, there are a lot of settings options that need to be explored when you first start working with the device. In my case, I have been using a pair of Olympus E-P1's with the 25mm and 45mm Lumix/Leica lenses, so it was easy for me to compare images. Unfortunately, I find the GX-1's images to be slightly soft-looking right out of the box.

Why I cannot delete pictures?! Need help!!

Coastal house, Amazon
5 February 2013
  • Summary: Besides all the good stuff everybody has said, I have encountered a problem when deleting pictures: when I choose a pic to delete, it keeps telling me "editing operation cannot proceed as information processing is ongoing" and a small bar is flashing on the left side of the screen. I checked the manual book but found no answer. So I googled, very few people has the problem but I did found someone who has the same issue.

  • Summary: Really liked the camera but the lens zoom ring was really sticky and or notchy tight. Camera and little lens really takes nice pictures but the tight jumpy zoom ring is a deal breaker for me.

Disappointing when used with kit lens

Tintin, Amazon
8 September 2012
  • Summary: 1. Image quality: I have a D40 where 99% of the pictures taken look gorgeous even with kit lens. With Panasonic GX1 and kit lens, 80% of pictures taken look just bad. Kit lens is too slow. At low ISO, indoor pictures always look shaky, maybe the clunkier than usual shutter has something to do with it. At ISO 800 or above, pictures look grainy. It does take some good pictures in bright light. Though sometimes even in good light the focus is not sharp.

Great camera, troublesome and flawed lens

FlyCBA, Amazon
14 May 2012
  • Summary: I have the GX1 and 14-42X just received from Amazon as the kit. The lens serial number starts with HH1L. It definitely shows the blurry effect that is worse with the OIS turned on. Shots taken at 1/30 look MUCH better than shots taken at 1/60 to 1/200 with OIS turned on. Even with OIS turned off the shots at 1/30 look better than shots at 1/60 to 1/200. That was surprising to me. My shots were handheld and zoomed out to 42mm.

Disappointed; One man's view

Gadget MD, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this camera looking for near DSLR equipment. I wanted to go light. I own or have owned, Nikons, Canons and Olympus cameras. I am not a "fanboy" of any particular brand but look for equipment that fulfills a purpose. That said, here are my impressions after a week of use and about 500 pictures.

The camera I wanted to love

rattay, Ebay
21 February 2012
  • Summary: Durability Concern. Only 4 weeks old and a small bump shocked the camera enough that it will not power up. Sadly Panasonic wont cover it as it is considered as an external event and wants half the retail price to repair it. My jaw hit the ground. I have enjoyed the camera quite a bit but sadly I would have to classify it as highly shock prone after my experience. A light tumble may cost you $350.

Great camera awful touch screen

Rbmedia, Amazon
24 February 2014
  • Summary: Upgraded from GF1, image quality is amazing and 20mm 1.7 the must have lens. It's just a shame the terrible touchscreen that has a mind of his own. Was about to sell the camera because of this, but fortunately there's an option to turn off the touch function. Small camera, great iq.

  • Excerpt: Основным критерием при выборе камеры было наличие широкоугольных объективов в линейке. Таким образом выбирал между Олимпусом и Панасоником. А по качеству картинки на высоких ISO эта камера пока лучшая в системе. Планирую прикупить к ней еще ширик и нормальный светосильный фикс, и получится полноценный лекгий тревел комплект. Зеркалку и несколько тяжелых линз тоскать надоело.
  • Pros: Красивый ))), очень удобное продуманное управление, многое делается через тачскрин (что и достоинство и недостаток одновременно). Live histogram - это сила - не нужно догавываться, какую поправку вытавить что бы не было пере/недосветов. Качество картинки на уровне, даже на ISO 1600 получаются вполне приемлемые фотографии. Примеры можно посмотреть тут - http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/photozs/album/185034/?p=0. С новым “power zoom” объективом камера помещается в карман ку...
  • Cons: Компактность “power zoom” объектива – считай единственное его достоинство, по всем прочим пораметрам – это самый обычный китовый объектив с сильнейшей бочкой на широком конце (правда при съемке в jpeg камера сама автоматически исправляет геометрию, а при съемке в raw все можно исправить в конвертере). Если не нужна компактность, а плавный зум при съемке видео не критичен – лучше взять старый дешевый зум. Я не обнаружил как можно заблокировать тачскрин. Когда камера ви...

  • Summary: Vaya decepción!!! la probe unos dias y vaya decepcion, calidad de imagen para el tamaño del sensor no muy buena, pantalla decepcionante, pocos mandos manuales, la cambie por una canon G1x y vaya diferencia!!! la Canon es una caña, es mejor en todo, tiene una calidad de imagen impresionante, muchos mas mandos manuales, mejor pantalla y mejor construcción. No os dejeis engañar por la publicidad.
