Panasonic Lumix GX1

 

Is the Lumix GX1 Panny's best CSC yet?

Small yet richly featured ; Excellent image quality ; Good low-light performance ; Built-in flash and hotshoe connector

Lumix 'X' powered zoom can be a bit fiddly

Panasonic Lumix GX1 review

 

A compact, lightweight all-rounder, this Micro Four Thirds Lumix has tank-like sturdiness and hefty dollops of user-friendliness, whether you're a shutter nutter or wet behind the ears. There are tons of controls – both physical and via touchscreen –...

First Look: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1

 

The new Panasonic Lumix GX1 bridges the gap between the compact Lumix GF3 and the mini DSLR-alike G3 and GH3 models. As such, it sits on the more compact side of the Lumix G series range, but still offers a whole host of controls and features to...

Lots of controls, hotshoe and accessory port, level gauge, video performance

Accurate focusing was a problem in our preliminary play, but otherwise, too soon to say

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 review

 

Sophisticated compact system camera with advanced features

Great build quality ; Good range of customisable features ; Effective Creative Controls ; Fast AF system ; Decent image quality and overall low light performance

Touchscreen could be more responsive ; Several of the controls may prove fiddly for some ; No built-in viewfinder ; LCD is fixed rather than articulated

This year has seen a glut of mirrorless compact system cameras (CSCs) being released from the majority of the top manufacturers. With a range of CSCs in all manner of shapes and sizes on offer, the market is incredibly competitive.

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GX1 review

 

To frame photos, you need to use the 3in LCD screen, which can be hard to view outdoors on bright days — then again, this is a problem for most cameras on the market. It's also a touchscreen that allows you to very easily select focus points on the...

The LUMIX GX1 incorporates manual features, a touchscreen and a high level of performance in a camera body that is compact and comfortable to hold. It produced excellent results in our tests, in the ISO testing in particular, and it's a good all-round...

Expert Reviews is proud to bring you this Panasonic GX1 review from Short Sharp Reviews - click through to YouTube for a 1080p HD version

Superb controls, lightning fast performance, slim profile and excellent (but not class-leading) image and video quality – a sublime package that's worth the high price

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 review

 

With its aluminium chassis and rangefinder style, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is likely to appeal to enthusiast photographers. In use, the camera does not disappoint, either. Its touchscreen enhances its handling and I have not come across a more rapid...

Panasonic DMC-GX1 compact system camera

 

Review Panasonic's DMC-GX1 camera is the Lumix model many Micro Four Thirds enthusiasts have been waiting for since the release of popular DMC-GF1 back in 2009. This 16Mp shooter will appeal to seasoned users with easily accessible controls for...

If you loved the GF1, the GX1 could be exactly the camera you’ve been waiting for. Its superb build quality and ergonomics are matched with speedy performance and excellent image quality. It’s a little unnecessarily complicated to use and could do with...
