SLR quality in a digicam-size package comes to the enthusiast digital photographer in the form of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1.
Packing a larger sensor into a small body, the Panasonic GF1's images are impressive, rivaling today's best digital SLR cameras, with excellent detail and low noise. To rival SLR digital cameras properly, of course, the Panasonic GF1 needs interchangeable lenses, and Panasonic delivers some of the finest optical performance we've seen from the Lumix GF1's two available kit lenses. In addition to 12-megapixel stills, the Panasonic GF1 can record HD movies of pretty high quality. Coming in at about the same weight and size as its main rival, the Panasonic GF1 is nonetheless faster than the Olympus E-P1; though what the two cameras share is a lens mount and adapters that allow mounting of quite a wide range of Four Thirds and other lenses. There's a lot to cover with the Panasonic Lumix GF1, so click here for our full review of this exciting Micro Four Thirds digital camera.
