Panasonic today unveiled the Lumix DMC-G1, the world's smallest interchangeable lens camera.
Based on the micro four-thirds system, the G1 effectively does away with the traditional mirror and pentaprism arrangement found in conventional SLRs. This means that the entire camera can be much smaller and compact, and lenses are generally more lightweight.
All the photos below were taken with the G1, testing out two lenses announced alongside the camera (a 14-45mm and a 45-200mm). Stay tuned for our hands-on first take and review. All photos were taken at Sculpture By The Sea, Bondi Beach, Australia on the Panasonic DMC-G1.
We like how the G1 has lots of customisable settings for the beginner and amateur photographer alike, such as colour temperature control and saturation, that can all be previewed in real-time on the electronic viewfinder and LCD screen.
