Panasonic Lumix GX1

Sibling pedigree


You might not consider a grip the most identifiable feature of a new camera, but for the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 ($699), that’s exactly the case. The successor to the mighty successful GF1, a camera we’ve recommended time and time again here at GP, the GX1 certainly packs a wallop: 16 megapixel Live MOS sensor, Panasonic Venus Engine, 3″ touchscreen with new interface, revamped touch-autofocus system, 1920x1080p 60 fps HD AVCHD video with 0.09 second autofocus, ISO 12800, built-in pop-up flash, 11% better battery life, and compatibility with the stockpile of awesome and painfully pricey Micro Four Thirds lenses including that 3D one. New to the camera is an available separate high-resolution tilt/shift viewfinder, two 14-42 f3.5-5.6 kit lenses (unfortunately, the prime lens option is gone), and a choice of silver or black body. Oh, and of course that stout-looking grip.

More photos and video after the jump.
