    English isn’t my native language, but did he say that you can use other microphones aswell on gx1? I think that is not true, because you can’t there is no microphone input.

    • John O’Connell

      Yes.He did say it was usable with other Microphones.

      Yep, that’s what he said but I think it was just an innocent mistake.

      Robert White is wrong about that. There is no external microphone jack on the GX1. Panasonic reserves that feature for its GH series cameras which are more video oriented. ie. the GH2 has a jack.
      In spite of that …as I shoot only stills…I have a Silver GX1 on the way to go with the LVF2 I received yesterday. The camera was a little hard to track down and actually have one shipped in a timely manner. The Amazon site says that the silver camera bodies will be delayed in shipping out? …so is it in stock or almost in stock???? :-)
      …but Pany got the camera and viewfinder out pretty quickly this time around…so that is an improvement.

    Wow, seems like Panasonic can finally get their products in the stores within a reasonable time.

    Received my GX1 today and I must say I am impressed with the IQ and ISO performance. My E-3 looks like a joke now :(

    Iso1600 on the GX1 is same or better then Iso400 on the E-3. Great great allround camera the GX1.

    amazon us says will ship within 3-6weeks…. what…?

    i just has the local shop (which has 12 in stock and are already sold out) order a silver body for me. hoping they will get it faster than i would if i ordered online (plus still waiting for all the funds or else i would probably just order now from Samys.

    I had pre-ordered a GX1 from Amazon and got notice that it shipped today (black, body only). The order status had been saying for a while that the item would *not* arrive by Dec 25, but it looks like they were just trying to keep expectations low.

    Lucky @FS. i hope to have mine by january 7th (daughters first birthday) plus the M39 – MFT adapter got here today. so it’s really calling my name….

  • alexander

  • Cteve

    They used a big guy to make the camera look even more compact. 😉

      lol— I noticed it looked especially small, but didn’t put it together with the size of the presenter.
