Panasonic Lumix GX1

Introduction
The Lumix DMC-GX1 is Panasonic’s new premium compact system camera. Marking a return to the prosumer-friendly ethos of the 2 year old GF1 model, the Panasonic GX1 features a FourThirds sized 16-megapixel Live MOS sensor, built-in pop-up flash and a 3 inch touch-sensitive LCD screen with a resolution of 460,000 dots. The DMC-GX1 also offers full HD movies at 1920 x 1080 at 60i (NTSC) / 50i (PAL) in AVCHD format with stereo sound and full-time auto-focus, 4.2fps continuous shooting, fast contrast-detect auto-focus system that can lock onto a subject in approximately 0.09 second, Venus Engine processor, RAW support and an ISO range of 160-12800.
