Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G1

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G1, is world?s smallest and lightest digital interchangeable lens camera system, with the body and kit lens weighing in at approximately 580 grams (1.28 lbs). Based on the new Micro Four Thirds System standard, the LUMIX G1 eliminates the internal mirror structure that defines digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras, thus reducing the size and weight by nearly half.** With the mirror-less system, the G1?s flange back, which is the distance between the mount and the image sensor, has been reduced from 40 mm ? as specified in the Four Thirds System ? to approximately 20 mm.

Features :
  • 12.1 effective Megapixel Live MOS sensor (same size as on a regular FourThirds camera)
  • Venus Engine HD image processor
  • Flip-out, rotating 3-inch LCD display + ultra-high resolution EVF
  • Live view experience that rivals (or exceeds) that of a compact camera
  • 23-point, fast contrast detect autofocus
  • Dust reduction system
  • Full manual controls + Intelligent Auto Mode (just like on Panasonic's compact cameras)
  • Continuous shooting at 3 frames/second
  • Hot shoe for external flash
  • HDMI port

Re: Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G1

Panasonic?s iA includes the following intuitive technologies.
  • AF Tracking ? Automatically tracks the subject as it moves, keeping it in focus without the need to hold the shutter halfway down.
  • Intelligent Exposure ? Helps prevents photos from being under- or over-exposed by analyzing the framed image and adjusting the brightness in areas that are too dark because of dim lighting, backlighting or the use of the flash.
  • MEGA O.I.S. ? Gyrosensors detect hand-shake and the lens system shifts to compensate, helping to prevent hand movement from creating a blurry image.
  • Intelligent ISO ? Determines if the photo subject is moving and changes the ISO setting and shutter speed accordingly, thus giving a blur-free photo.
  • Intelligent Scene Selector ? Senses the ambient conditions and will automatically select the appropriate mode from Scenery, Portrait, Close-up, Night Portrait or Night Scenery.
  • Face Detection ? Detects faces in the frame (up to 15 faces), even if they are moving, and selects optimal focus and exposure settings so portraits come out clear. Also features Digital Red-Eye correction.

Re: Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G1

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G1, a 12.1 Megapixel camera, also includes the following advanced features.
  • Live MOS Sensor ? Provides the best of both worlds with high image quality from a CCD sensor, and the lower-power consumption of a CMOS sensor. New technology makes it possible to read four channels of data simultaneously and deliver 60 frames-per-second full-time Live View images.
  • Venus Engine HD ? New imaging processor enhances noise reduction and provides independent gradation control for each of the R, G and B colors.
  • Supersonic Wave Filter Dust Reduction System ? Designed to prevent dust from adhering to the image sensor by vibrating 50,000 times per second, the filter repels dust and other particles.
  • My Color Mode ? Users can freely adjust the color, brightness and saturation while composing shots, allowing for more expressive and creative shots.
  • HDMI Output ? With an optional HDMI cable, the G1 can connect to an HDMI-capable High Definition television, such as a Panasonic VIERA Plasma or LCD. When connected to a VIERA, using VIERA Link capability, the TV?s remote control can direct the slideshow on the G1.
  • My Menu ? This new tab automatically stores the five most recently used menu selections for quick, convenient retrieval. The custom-setting can also be used to program a frequently-used function which can be activated by pressing the down arrow on the cursor key. The color of the menu viewed on LCD can also be changed to three different colors: black, red, blue.
