The interchangeable lens system has been an instant hit with photography amateurs and professionals alike back when the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 was first released. It was the first camera of its kind ever to be sold. Three years on, the Lumix series continues to be a crowd favourite with the all new Lumix DMC-GX1 recently introduced.
The interchangeable lens system was once touted to make DSLR cameras obsolete and the GX-1 may just be one step closer in doing so, with an amazing 16.0-megapixel live MOS senor and Venus Engine that allows for high picture quality.
If sports photography is in your area of interest, the GX-1 is certainly built for capturing fast-moving subjects. With a precision contrast auto focus system that has a 0.09 second light speed auto focus with consecutive shooting at 4.2frames per second, this bad boy is a serious contender to most DSLR cameras out there.
The GX-1 will be the first camera from the new premium line of Lumix G Micro System that features a nice leather grip and dial that allows for smooth operation. The Lumix DMC-GX1 makes a great second camera for the avid photographer if you are tired of lugging a huge DSLR on trips.
Some of the other functions include the GX-1 include 1080p full-HD video recording with stereo sound in AVCHD format, artistic colour control functions and creative filters.
