Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1W Mirrorless Camera Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Panasonic is one of the top 100 biggest grossing companies in the world and it is the styling and design of Panasonic camera that has played the vital role alongside crystal clear graphics and great transducer technology that has made it the landmark it is today. One of the better devices in the organisation’s bet is Panasonic DMC GX1W also known as Panasonic GX1 as it is only the fourth Panasonic compact pocketeable device which enjoys Micro Four Thirds standards that Panasonic has codeveloped with Olympus. As the other entire mirror-less compacts, it packs a DSLR sized sensor into a compact body for the ease of use, in this case a 16 megapixel sensor which was earlier used in Panasonic Lumix G3. But then, instead of replacing an existing model, new Panasonic Lumix only represents a new category in Panasonic Lumix G series which is aimed at all the camera enthusiasts.

In many ways Panasonic Lumic GX1 returns to the concept of the original Lumix GF1 by including a hotshoe along with a mode dial. Indeed as Panasonic simplified the GF series with each generation, many owners of the earlier models grew frustrated they were being forced into the larger G or GH series if they wanted to retain lots of control and features when upgrading. Surely a question would have definitely raised is that the maximum demand is for a well controlled and performance packed camera which is compact and easy to use, Is such a camera available? Well Panasonic Lumix GX1 is that device. When you take the first look aat this device it seems like GF1 equipped with the sensor of Panasonic Lumix G3, but look a little deeper and you'll realise it's physically quite a different beast to the original GF model.

Design and Build Quality

When you look at the exterior of Panasonic Lumix GX1, you may very well be fooled by it mistaking it can the original Panasonic Lumix GF1, a decision by Panasonic as that model struck a chord with the same enthusiasts it's targeting for an upgrade here. Measuring 116mm x 68mm x 39.4mm, it's also similar in overall dimensions too: that's 3mm narrower, 3mm shorter and 3mm thicker than Panasonic Lumix GF1. Panasonic Lumix GX1 weighs 318g including battery but no lens, compared to 341g for the GF1. Suffice it to say when both cameras are in your hands they feel roughly the same size and weight. The top surface of this device looks exceptionally similar to the Panasonic Lumix GF1 with a pop up flash, a standard hotshoe and a mode dial along with a movie record button but then again there have been some key change brought in the device. The manual flash mounted on the top has a new mechanical spring based mechanism which allows the flash to reach higher and reach further forward so as to clear larger lenses and for the reduction of red eye.  w

Focus and Face Detection

Panasonic GX1 employs a contrast-based AF system. Most of the options are inherited from the G3, although Panasonic has added a new AFF mode and claims the AF speed is now quicker than before. Panasonic quotes the AF speed of the GX1 as 0.09 seconds, making it the quickest Lumix G model to date, although to be fair, the G3 and GF3 aren't too far behind at 0.1 seconds. The GX1 achieves this by employing 120fps lens drive when you half-press the shutter to focus, compared to 60fps on the G3 and GF3. Panasonic Lumix GX1 inherits the same 16 Megapixel sensor as the G3 before it, making it the joint-highest resolution Micro Four Thirds camera to date. It's actually a three-way tie with the GH2, although that model employs a different sensor to the GX1 / G3 with a neat trick where spare pixels around the edges are used to maintain the angle of view when shooting in different aspect ratios.

Lens and Image Stabilization

Between Panasonic and Olympus now some 25 lens models are available that flaunt their Micro Four Thirds technology. Panasonic itself offers a healthy selection of eight zoom lenses and six primes, including its unusual 3D lens, all compatible with the GX1. Olympus, meanwhile, offers eight zooms and three primes, and several other lenses are available or soon to ship in Micro Four Thirds-mount form from the likes of Cosina, Samyang, Noktor, SLR Magic, and Wanderlust. In addition, courtesy of mount adapters, it's possible to attach all sorts of current and historic glass to any Micro Four Thirds camera body--at least, as long as you're willing to live with limitations such as completely manual focusing.

Screen and Menus

Panasonic Lumix GX1 comes with a big 3 inch touch screen display of Panasonic Lumix G3, being not exceptionally big in size most of the rear part of the camera is covered by the screen, unlike G3 the screen is fixed and cannot articulate around a hinged point. Taking into notice the size, shape and resolution of the device it features 3 inch screen default aspect ratio of 3:2 and optical resolution of 460000 dot pixels. When shooting photos in the native 4:3 aspect ratio, Panasonic GX1 shows thin black bars down either side of the image, with the active area measuring 2.7in on the diagonal. When shooting 16:9 content, such as HD movies, Panasonic Lumix GX1 shows thin black bars above and below the image, resulting in a 2.8in diagonal. Switch to cropped 3:2 shaped images on Panasonic GX1 and they'll fill the full 3in diagonal of its screen.

Battery

The powerhouse of Panasonic GX1 is the DMW-BLD10E 1010mAh rechargeable Lithium Ion pack which Panasonic claims is good for 310 photos or 155 minutes of video under CIPA conditions. Note the earlier GF1 was powered by a 1250mAh pack good for 350 shots. Panasonic Lumix G3 shares same pack as Panasonic GX1 but you can only squeeze 270 shots out of it.

Video Mode

When Panasonic Lumix GX1 is set to MP4, you can choose between FHD (1080p encoded at 20Mbit/s), HD (720p encoded at 10Mbit/s) and VGA (640x480 encoded at 4Mbit/s); each of the MP4 modes is encoded in a progressive format at 25p or 30p depending on region and matching the output from the sensor. These options are preferable to the previous Motion JPEG mode with topped-out at 720p and was limited to short clips.

Sensors

Panasonic Lumix GX1 inherits the same 16 Megapixel sensor as the G3 before it, making it the joint-highest resolution Micro Four Thirds camera to date.

This is not a Point & Shoot camera! This is an Interchangeable Lens camera with MFT mount, someone looking for a P&S may be misled by the category. Pls put this in the appropriate category.
