(FT1-FT2) First Panasonic GL1 picture



From a japanese blog:

The GL1 is about the same size as the E-P1. With EVF without the body’s built-in IS

Our opinion:

Our sources told us the compact Micro Four Thirds Panasonic camera will have EVF and NO in body IS. The image is a FAKE ! But may close to the real camera…

    Something like that would be lovely – a digital Leica CL. This would be the fake I would produce!

    I hope this is true. I know the G1 & GH1 are both really good cameras, but I simply couldn’t get past the look of them. If I wanted a Canon Rebel I’d buy a Canon Rebel.

    As the proud owner of the Panasonic LC-1, it is little to say that I hope that this fake image is close from the actual forthcoming m43 camera. Still skeptical though: the recent Panasonic are uniformly ugly (hence ”mainstream”, see G1 / GH1) to my taste. On top of this, the exceptional build quality of the LC-1 has its price: something circa 1600 USD upon release.

    That’s a photoshopped picture of the Panasonic L1 so I don’t see how it could be close to the real camera.

      I told you already that it is a fake image. But the designer has been close to the real camera- So sources told me…

  • TigerZ

    NO in body IS
    oh NOoooo….

    Just another piece of hardware Panasonic can’t deliver. Nothing to get excited about.

  • nevre

    Panasonic can deliver, but they don’t want to due to strong Yen compared to the other currency. They can’t make money selling those thin profit high-end camera overseas, so they decided to export cheap cameras only.

  • davidk


    So then Nikon, Canon, and Sony must be using some other Yen?

  • KWW

    me likey!

  • iMikl

    Yes please!!!

    Clean design…. I need it!!

  • excellent design
    design of gh1 is so bad, it’s the only reason i will not buy it

  • Staton Winter

    I like this…looks weird but good, so even if its a fake, it still looks better than the GF1 mock-ups seen on this site…

  • Csabi

    Pinch me!!!!!!!!!!
    Boyz n girlz, if it’s true, I’m selling my Canon gear. The DMC-LC1 is a fabulous camera, I used one for 3 years. I only wished for:

    – higher resolution with bigger sensor for DOF
    – interchangeable lenses (Leica M or dedicated)
    – better EVF

    I can’t see the pop-up flash on this one, though. The one on the LC-1 with the bounce option was a stunner. I actually regretted selling that baby and decided to buy the successor if there is one. However, Pana has not matched that beast yet.
    The Digilux-3 with the porro finder was a dead end, and hugely overpriced.
    G1 and GH1 — good concept but the ugliest buggers ever (red and blue body? Yuck)

    Fingers crossed it is true. Countdown on the microsite says twoo weeks and a bit to go.

    tha’ts just a photo of a really old pany model called the lc-1, it never really flew, but it’s a nice thought though
