Panasonic Lumix DMC GX1 reviews:

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has an abundance of external control points and an responsive and intuitive touchscreen interface that make the GX1 a very pleasant camera to use. Users of any current G-series camera wil feel right at home navigating the camera’s menu structure which is laid out in a sensible, if not particularly efficient tabbased multiple page interface. You can read more about operations and controls of this camera on Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 review by dpreview.com. This website says:

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 offers a unique handling and operational experience, not out of sheer innovation, but in large part due to its combination of internal specs and external design found in the G3 and GF1 models respectively. The AF system is fast and reliable; among the best we’ve seen from any G-series model.

The Panasonic Lumix GX1 has a shading compensation feature that can help reduce the effects of vignetting, but Panasonic cautions that use of shading compensation may cause noise in the periphery of the picture to stand out with higher ISO sensitivities. More about that you can find on Panasonic Lumix GX1 review by digitalcamerareview.com.

The Lumix GX1 offers a 1080i movie mode that captures at 50 fields per second (output at 25 fps for the PAL release or 1080i60 output at 30 fps in the US’s NTSC model). The lack of a microphone port on this model is something of a surprise as the inclusion of a hotshoe and other high-end features would suggest additional audio capabilities would be on the cards. More details you can read on LUMIX GX1 review by whatdigitalcamera.com. At the end of review, this website conclude:

he GX1 is an accomplished camera that’ll be well suited to more demanding photographers. Compared to its Compact System Camera competitors Panasonic’s latest has a fine balance of physical system size to image quality ratio. The huge array Micro Four Thirds lenses available also makes the G-series all the more attractive.

 

The Panasonic Lumix GX1 produces images of excellent quality. It produces noise-free images at ISO 100 to 800, with limited noise starting to appear at ISO 1600. More about the image quality of Lumix GX1 and image tests results you can find on photographyblog.com.

Another great Panasonic Lumix DMC GX1 review comes from digitalcamerainfo.com There you can read more about distorsion, noise reduction, sharpness and other GX1’s characteristics as well you can see a lot of sample images made by Lumix DMC-GX1. This website concludes:

The GX1 is a fine camera through and through. Image quality is arguably the best that we’ve seen from the Micro Four Thirds format—it’s a toss-up with last year’s G3, which is built around very similar components, but we give the edge to the new kid.

Like previous G-series cameras the new 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.
