Panasonic Lumix G1 Review


This is a great little camera.

The swivelling LCD screen and small form factor, while retaining all the advantages of a DSLR, make it a great little travelling camera.

This camera is a 12.1mpx camera.

At higher ISOs the image can be rather noisy but given the price difference it is much less noisy than the more professional D100 and D200 cameras I also own. Having said that those are quite a bit older so the G1 probably benefits from quite a few years of noise reduction technology. The camera has all the features one would expect from the modern DSLR such as aperture and shutter speed priorities as well as full manual control.

I must admit that the lenses for the Micro 4/3 sensor can be a little pricey.

Overall 6/10.
