The Lumix GX1 Digital Camera8th November 2011     By: Panasonic Media

Panasonic is proud to announce the Lumix GX1 Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera, the latest addition to the G Series family.

The Lumix GX1 carries a classic design in a high-grade chassis, engineered for quality in both form and function.

Packed inside its Black or Gunmetal Grey body is a large sensor for capturing D-SLR-like quality images, paired with an accurate, super-fast autofocus and numerous state-of-the-art features. The result is nothing less than a superbly elegant, easy-to-use interchangeable lens camera which delivers high-class images.

The Lumix GX1 is expected to be available in New Zealand early 2012.


Brilliant picture quality

Capture outstanding D-SLR picture quality without the burden of a big, heavy camera. The Panasonic Lumix GX1 has a 16-megapixel Four Thirds sensor which is much larger than those found in simple point-and-shoot cameras, yet has a similar compact body size. The large sensor delivers high-resolution photos that can be enlarged and cropped as suited, giving you excellent creative photography options.

Sensational autofocus

The new and enhanced Autofocus function built into the GX1 is not only extremely accurate and precise, it also focuses in ultra-fast 0.09 seconds*. This ensures that you get the sharp shot you want, when it happens - never missing a moment. It is the ultimate pocket-sized companion for your busy lifestyle on the go. Even the Burst Shooting speed is an amazing 20 frames per seconds (fps), enabling you to catch the exact moment of action.

*With the H-VS014140 HD lens.

Clear low-light shooting

Let your photography skills shine - even under low-light conditions. The Lumix GX1's highly sensitive sensor goes beyond that of conventional cameras to offer impressive details even at up to ISO 12,800. This means that you can capture dimly lit scenes in a natural light without the need for the flash - and they appear clear and sharp, ready for sharing.
