Panasonic Lumix DMC GH1 Conclusion

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 digital system camera
Panasonic knows how to draw the attention by inventing innovative imaging solutions. With the introduction of the Micro Four Thirds system, Panasonic knew how to surprise the world, and even more with the almost immediate launch of the Lumix G1. At the same time, Panasonic stated that this would not be the end and the highest priority would be given to video. Once the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 was a fact, the video capabilities of the GH1 to be convincing to many. This proves that in the run-up to the GH1 and the presentation concerning the Micro Four Thirds, Panasonic did not say one word too many.

Panasonic Lumix GH1 photo & video camera in once
The Panasonic DMC-GH1 feels supported by a very well-received G1; Panasonic's first system camera based on the Micro Four Thirds system. With almost identical features, the expansion of the video functionality and the integration of the multi-aspect ratio image sensor, unique features became available that make the Panasonic G-system a mature one. The video function is much enhanced and offers high-quality HD video capture. Creative videography is enabled, especially with so many options and possibilities and the interchangeability of the lens. Whereas the image quality of the G1 was already great; that of the Panasonic Lumix GH1 is even better.

Panasonic DMC-GH1 suggested retail price
The small minuses, for example the location of the video button, do not compare to the long list of unique features that the Panasonic GH1 offers. However, there is one thing we have to mention, and that is its retail price. The slightly high price is mainly caused by the specially designed lens. On the other hand, there is no similar system offering the same video quality and video functionality, so from that point of view, the retail price seems justified.

Panasonic GH1 a unique system camera
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 is the first system camera that allows for capturing high-quality HD videos and photos. The Micro Four Thirds system that the Panasonic DMC-GH1 belongs to, has expanded and leads the way when it comes to compact dimensions and integration of all-round HD video functionality. The Panasonic G-series is the first series of system cameras aimed at a specific photographer, not the actual specialist, but someone with high demands when it comes to camera / video quality. We will no doubt soon hear of Panasonic's plans with the Micro Four Thirds system, however; if you can't wait, you will have a very complete camera with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 for high-quality picture and video capture in a most creative way!

Panasonic Lumix GH1 a fast digital system camera
The Panasonic DMC-GH1 responds very quickly, especially for a camera in this segment. In the beginning, we were quite skeptical about the initial announcement about the Panasonic GH1 using AF contrast detection. Although maybe quite obvious for this concept, we were just not that thrilled about it, considering our experiences in terms of speed with similar systems. Therefore, it was a pleasant surprise to learn that speed is possible, and that rapid snapshots are also possible with cameras like the GH1. During shooting, you will never run into any form of delay. Shutter lag is measurable, but not noticeable in practice. In addition, the AF is quite extensive with a 23 multi-segment AF including the possibility to place a focus point randomly in the composition. Extraordinary also is tracking AF and Face Detection; both working great on the Panasonic GH1.

SanDisk Extreme III SDHC 8GB 30MB/sec card
The speed of approximately 3 fps allows the Panasonic Lumix GH1 to capture action moments as a series. Naturally, there are speed monsters that can take an excessive 10fps, but the Panasonic GH1 is just not really the appropriate camera for this. It is important to go for a fast memory card, so it won't become the bottleneck of the system. To test the speed of the Panasonic DMC-GH1 speed, we used a SanDisk Extreme III SDHC 8GB 30MB/sec card.
