Panasonic DMC GX1

The Panasonic Lumix DMC GX1 is a 16 megapixels compact system camera. If you are new to this type of camera it is in many ways a cross between a digital camera and a Digital SLR. From a Digital SLR it takes advanced features such as manual exposure controls (Fully Manual, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority), plus the ability to accept different lenses to match your requirements for the photograph you are about to take. From a digital camera it takes a more compact size and in the case of the Lumix DMC GX1 certain popular features such as a touch sensitive LCD screen.

Owing to a combination of features and cost this camera is likely to appeal to you if you see photography as a hobby.

For the Lumix DMC GX1, Panasonic have come up with their most stylish design to date. The build quality is hard to beat in this category of camera. Panasonic have made models available in black and grey. As well as the touch sensitive 3 inch LCD screen, Panasonic have added more traditional buttons and dials to change some camera settings. A viewfinder is available to purchase separately. This plugs into the hot shoe.

Another strength of the Lumix DMC GX1 is that it is capable of recording Full High Definition movies.

Photographs can be stored in RAW mode.
