    New micro four-thirds Panasonic causes drool, consternation

    We saw this thing a little while ago and now it is real. The Panasonic DMC-GF1 is a micro four-thirds camera with 12-megapixel sensor, 1080p video recording, and nice image quality. After seeing the lackluster EP1 I am worried the M4/3 world might be too hard to handle, even for DSLR lovers. However, I'm willing to give this old girl a try. Read More

    Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX37

    Overview In my never-ending search for a high image quality compact digital camera, I came across the Panasonic DMC-FX37. This little compact caught my eye with its long list of premium features and tiny footprint. It’s got a wide-angle Leica lens, image stabilization, 720p HD video recording, and a 4x zoom. That’s a pretty compelling list of features for such a small camera. I’m… Read More

    Panasonic's micro four thirds Lumix G1 gets reviewed

    The full review for Panasonic's new generation of un-SLR is up over at DPReview, and they've given it the usual treatment. It looks like the G1, which I was a bit skeptical of, comes through okay. Given its natural limitations, it succeeds in image quality, color reproduction, and somewhat in usability. It isn't all fun and games, though. Read the full 33-page review here or click through for the… Read More

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 cameras shipping early

    I have absolutely no problem with companies saying that a certain product will ship at a certain time and then shipping said product a couple weeks early. In fact, I wish they all did that. Panasonic appears to have done it with its new Lumix DMC-G1 Micro Four Thirds cameras. The company’s shopping site lists the cameras for sale now to be shipped out within 1-3 business days. It’d… Read More

    The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 Micro Four Thirds broke cover a few weeks ago, but the press release didn’t include the price. (hate that) Thankfully, a loose -lip Panasonic Suit let it slip that the G1 is going to carry a $799 MSRP here in the States. Read More

  • Panasonic's Lumix FS5 is not a bad shooter

    [photopress:6953_FS54.jpg,full,center] Panasonic this week is debuting a new camera in its Lumix line. The FS5 is a 10-Megapixel point n’ shoot in the familiar Lumix form factor. Featruing a 30mm-equivelent lens, the camera is great for part shots or outdoorsmen, but not so much for portraiture, but it does have a zoom to 120mm equivalent, which addresses close-ups. The rest is pretty… Read More
