While it's technically not a digital SLR, the Panasonic GH1 kept us quite busy going over the myriad features of this refined interchangeable-lens digital camera.
With live view, fast autofocus, a swiveling LCD, a 12-megapixel sensor, optical image stabilization, several video modes, and impressive printed output, there's a lot to cover on the Panasonic Lumix GH1. Image quality has improved dramatically from the G1, making the Panasonic GH1 worth the extra money not only for its video mode and 10x lens. The Panasonic GH1 even does well pixel-for-pixel up against competing SLRs from Canon and Nikon. But it's the video mode that makes the Panasonic GH1 unique, capable of HD video capture in both AVCHD and Motion JPEG. What's more, you can shoot video in Program, Shutter-priority, Aperture-priority, and Manual exposure mode, a first for any digital camera, SLR or otherwise. Then there's that intangible feeling of satisfaction we got after a day of shooting with the Panasonic GH1 that leads us to give it such a strong recommendation.
