Based on Micro Four Thirds the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 provides HD Video in the size, shape, and feel of a smaller-sized digital SLR. In addition, this one can take still images at a maximum 12.1 megapixel resolution. With Panasonic’s Advanced Venus Engine HD Processor images are quickly processed even at high ISO settings. And, when it comes to audio the GH1 reaches high with Dolby Digital Stereo sound.
“Ultimately though, the biggest hurdle for the GH1 is its cost. Although the asking price of nearly £1300 ($2197 US) includes that very decent spec lens, that’s still quite a big ask of the advanced amateur. Its manufacturer might argue that the set-up will be all most will ever need, yet if you don’t need video or the longer lens, the G1 predecessor now looks considerably better value.”
