The world of photography has more and more enthusiasts, numbers that grow by the day, whether they are professionals or regular users. And the producers need to come with innovations and new technologies to simply cope with the rising demand. Panasonic has managed this with the latest Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 camera.

Belonging to their Compact System Cameras series, it comes with a 16.1 MP Live MOS sensor and the Venus Engine image processor for superb color rendering and near-to-natural resolution. One key feature of the G-series cameras is Contrast AF, which makes the auto-focus work simultaneously with the image sensor.

Added to these, Panasonic provided the Light Speed AF, a super-fast image capture setting (0.09s), and, all of these separate the DMC GX-1 from all other conventional cameras.

The camera comprises 14 Micro Four Thirds lenses and a load of accessories, e.g. the 3.0-inch incorporated touch screen LCD allows for an extremely facile control of the gadget, and the 460,000-dot resolution and wide viewing-angle let you take a quick glimpse of your photos, than capture some more.

This camera is a perfect cohesion between a professional apparatus and a common, easy-to-use one, combining high-quality with accessibility. Planned to be launched by the middle of December, in perfect coordination with the holidays, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 camera will be available in silver or black body, with 3 options:

  • DMC-GX1-X with the LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 14-42mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S (H-PS14042) lens, which will cost 949.99.
  • DMC-GX1-K with the 14-42 standard zoom – costs $799,99.
  • DMC-GX1 body only – available for $699.99.
