(FT5) Amazing: GM1 has 1/16.000 shutter!

Share

That little MFT camera is going to be a hell of ca camera. It has a superfast 1/16.000 shutter! I am not 100% sure yet but I think this can be achieve in pure electronic shutter mode like the one from the Nikon V1.

I also got some more specs not mentioned before: ISO 200-25.600, battery life is 230 pics, weight 204g with card and battery

The camera will be announced tomorrow (Oct 17) at around 4-5am London time.

GX7 test at DxOmark and CameraLabs

Share

DxOmark (Click here) posted the full GX7 sensor test. And the big question is…will it beat the E-M5 sensor? The answer is…it’s pretty much on par (70 point vs E-m5 71 points). This is DxO’s conclusion:

The Panasonic Lumix GX7 is certainly a compelling model. Not only does it now feature in-body stabilization (that’s compatible with any lens fitted) but it also silences critics of the original GX1 over the lack of an EVF. Couple that with the competitive performance of the new 16-Mpix L-MOS sensor and you have a camera that’s classy, refined and very capable.

But you know, DxO has his own rules for judging the sensor quality. You don’t have to take them as a given absolute truth :)

So you may watch over at our friend Gordon from CameraLabs (Click here). He also posted a full GX7 test:

I certainly can’t say (as others have) that this is the best mirrorless camera, the best Micro Four Thirds camera or even the best Lumix G camera. There’s both pros and cons here so it really boils down to which features are a priority for you personally. It could be the aspects that annoyed me may be non-issues for you in which case it’s a great choice.

The greatest GX7 news of the week is that finally our US readers can get it in Black too at BHphoto (Click here). About time!

(FT5) First images of the new GM1 with 12-32mm lens

Share

Digicameinfo got his hands on the first Panasonic GM1 camera and 12-32mm lens images. Both will be announced on Thursday at around 5-6am London time. Price of the camera+lens kit is 699 Euro! The lens has an f/3.5-5.6 aperture. It reminds me the Fuji XF1 and I have to say it’s a damn good-looking camera!

This is a high quality camera, the GM1 has the GX7 sensor, a magnesium alloy and the lens is all metal! Yep, let’s get rid of all that plastic stuff :)

So here is the question:

Do you like the new GM1?
