4 April 2014
  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1 offers complete direct photographic controls and a built-in EVF in a body barely larger than an usual ultra-compact. Its dual control-dials, traditional mode-dial and high number of buttons put it among the most efficient fixed-lens cameras to date.
  • Pros: Excellent balance of details and noise, Low image noise until ISO 400, Very reliable metering, Excellent resistance to chromatic aberrations, Low optical distortion, Very fast autofocus near wide-angle, Instant shutter-lag, Fast shot-to-shot speed, Smallest camera with built-in EVF, Good build qu...
  • Cons: Dim lens slows AF towards telephoto, Below-average Auto White-Balance, Low color accuracy, Half-press required for Exposure-Priority and correct Live-Histogram, Poor EVF resolution, Slow optical zoom, 1s Filming delay, 1080i @ 60 FPS, Poor tripod mount placement, Very short battery-life

  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix LF1 enters a increasingly competitive market, and its priced somewhere in the middle, costing around £75-100 more than the likes of the Canon PowerShot S110 or the Nikon Coolpix P330 , though around £75 less than either the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 or Fujifilm X20 , though both...
  • Pros: Built-in EVF; Wi-fi connectivity; Zoom range; Resolution; Handling
  • Cons: Screen could be better; Slow maximum aperture; Muted colours

  • Summary: The electronic viewfinder is the LF1's trump card, offering an alternative means of composition without compromising the body size or cost. Before you get too excited though, the LF1's viewfinder delivers a fairly small and low resolution image that's a world apart from the size and detail offered...
  • Pros: Genuinely pocketable body., Built-in electronic viewfinder., Decent 7.1x zoom range with f2.0 at wide-end., Built-in Wifi & NFC for wireless control and image transfer.
  • Cons: Viewfinder image is small and low resolution., No 1080p video, only 1080i., No touchscreen., No multiple exposures or timelapse mode., No built-in GPS - have to use app on smartphone.

[REVIEW—PANASONIC LUMIX DMC-LF1]

DPexpert
23 October 2013
  • Excerpt: This 12 megapixel compact camera has a 7X (28—200mm) optically stabilised zoom lens. It is built around the sensor and processor of the excellent LX7 but with a slower, longer lens. It has all the manual controls for the serious photographer, including a customisable selector ring around the lens.

25 August 2013
  • Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 was our favourite compact camera of 2012, with a long list of talents including exceptional photo and video quality, lightning fast performance and lots of physical controls. The LF1 is best seen as a sister product to the LX7.

Amateur Photographer
22 July 2013
  • Summary: Panasonic's Lumix DMC-LF1 is certainly a good camera but it is up against many excellent advanced compact cameras, so it may struggle to find its own place in the market. Obviously, the 7.1x zoom lens and electronic viewfinder are the defining features, but while an EVF is something I hope to see in...

Panasonic Lumix LF1 review

Pocket Lint
21 June 2013
  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix LF1 sounds like a dream on paper, but its wide-ranging feature set overreaches and, therefore, the camera fails to meet its maximum potential. It's got its heart in the right place, but cramming all this tech into the small body sees it slip away from being the truly high-end...
  • Pros: Small size (particularly considering feature set), lens control ring, built-in viewfinder has its appeal, bright aperture at wide-angle, raw & JPEG, 1/1.7-inch sensor size better than many standard compacts, manual focus and focus-distance indicator
  • Cons: Poor quality viewfinder isn't of much use, limited battery life, lens dips to f/5.9 at 200mm equivalent, stubby lens control ring, pricier than LX7, images a little flat, overexposure common in bright conditions, no touchscreen
