PanasonicPanasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 review : Micro Four Thirds is booming. Manufacturers like Panasonic regularly announce new products and accessories for the unique DSLR-alternative; the Micro Four Thirds System.

Panasonic review - Lumix GF1 compact camera design
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 features extremely compact dimensions. Its appearance is, contrary to the Olympus P1, more traditional and quite plain. The weight of both cameras is nearly identical and in terms of size, there are hardly any differences. Yet, they are still two clearly different system cameras, each with their typical appearance.

Panasonic reviews - Micro Four Thirds camera system
The unique feature of Micro Four Thirds is that it benefits from the quality of a DSLR yet features the size of a compact camera. This combination is unique compared to traditional cameras like the DSLR and compact camera. The compact camera is nice and small, as well as convenient to carry along with you regularly. If you set off with a digital SLR, you often have a plan, a target to shoot something; otherwise you would not take such a large and heavy camera along. The DSLR is primarily known for its quality, the compact for its portability. These points all come together in the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1, a Micro Four Thirds System camera par excellence.
