Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 Review

What Digital Camera
28 June 2007
  • Summary: As it offers a significantly different feature set from most other DSLRs, the L1 is worth considering particularly if you are new to automated cameras, maybe coming from older analogue models, or if you’re enough of a traditionalist to miss the operation of those cameras.
  • Pros: Fun handling - especially for the more traditional user; build quality; cracking lens; lovely image tonality; useful set of film modes
  • Cons: Price; still limited system at the moment; live view has limitations to its usefulness; small number of AF points

  • Conclusion: Panasonic Lumix DMC L1 digital reflexcamera Panasonic show they are realistic. They know they will not instantly become a market leader. After all, the market will need to get used to them, and Panasonic will in turn have to learn a thing or two about this "new market".

  • Summary: Panasonic’s Lumix L1 is arguably the most unique digital SLR on sale today. It may share many aspects with the Olympus E330 which provide the Live View, anti-dust system, and allow a flat upper surface, but Panasonic’s gone several steps further by adding a superb lens with optical stabilisation and...
  • Pros: Superb Leica kit lens with stabilisation, Effective anti-dust feature, Useful Live View facility, Quick and easy analogue controls
  • Cons: Relatively small and dim viewfinder, Out-resolved by 10 Mpixel DSLRs, Higher noise at 1600 ISO than most DSLRs, Live View slow and of limited appeal

  • Summary: Panasonic did not cut any corners when it introduced the Lumix DMC-L1 , its first digital SLR. With an elegant body design reminiscent of the rangefinder cameras, the Panasonic L1 succeeds in re-introducing analogue-type controls that work flawlessly: a Shutter Speed Dial on the top of the camera...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 DSLR camera

Pocket Lint
14 May 2007
  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 is an attractive package but that Leica kit lens makes it an expensive looking one, so the value for money becomes a bit of an issue when you look at competing D-SLRs in that price bracket.
  • Pros: Lens, OIS, build, white balance, live view, responsive, nice menus, image quality, handling
  • Cons: Heavy, gloomy viewfinder, noisy images at high ISO, LCD does not flip out and so fails to get the most from Live View capability

  • Conclusion: Al met al is de Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 mij prima bevallen. Het is absoluut een eigenzinnige camera met hier en daar wat eigenwijze nukken. Zou Panasonic die kunnen verhelpen, dan hebben ze zeker een winnaar in handen.

  • Conclusion: Genel olarak bakıldığında Panasonic Lumix DMC L1 gayet hoşumuza gitti. Panasonic L1 çeşitli ilginç özellikleri ile kışkırtıcı bir ürün diyebiliriz. Ufak tefek detayları da çözdükten sonra sanırız Panasonic süper kalitede bir ürün ile karşımıza çıkacaktır.

Panasonic Lumix DMC L1 Test

Let's go digital
20 July 2007
  • Conclusion: Panasonic Lumix DMC L1 digitale Reflexkamera Panasonic ist realistisch. Man weiß dort, dass man nicht auf einen Schlag zum Marktführer werden kann. Der Markt muss sich schließlich noch an Panasonic gewöhnen und die Marke selbst muss noch das eine oder andere von diesem „neuen Markt“ lernen.
