PanasonicPanasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 review : During the Photokina 2008 where visitors were able to meet the G1 for the first time, the attentive camera enthusiast could already sneak in a first glimpse of the GH1. A prototype was taking cover in the back of the booth. Due to the visible built-in stereo microphone, it soon became clear that we could expect something truly special from this type of Panasonic Micro Four Thirds system camera. Six months later, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 was officially announced and became the world's first system camera with High Definition video and continuous AF support.

Panasonic GH1 review - Camera body
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 camera is almost identical to the G1 when it comes to design. The exception is the slightly larger size caused by the built-in stereo microphone on top of the camera. The somewhat odd yet pleasant feeling provided by the material used for the housing, has also remained. It feels a bit like a rubber 'skin'. Rough, yet at the same time offering a good hand-fit. The size of the GH1 is still considered to be compact in relation to the smallest digital SLR cameras. However, Panasonic is currently facing a new rival; the Olympus E-P1, a Micro Four Thirds camera that was recently introduced and of which we will also publish a camera review soon.

Panasonic DMC GH1 review - Micro Four Thirds system camera
The Micro Four Thirds system seems an ideal system that can build the perfect bridge between the standard compact camera and the digital SLR. In terms of dimensions, we have not yet seen the smallest camera possible, and the potential to grow to a perfect combination of video and photo, will undoubtedly attract a large group of photographers. The optical viewfinder as we find in standard DSLR cameras, has been removed from the Panasonic DMC-GH1. It is substituted by the high resolution electronic viewfinder (EVF).
