Review: Panasonic Lumix GX1

No company is more responsible for establishing the Micro Four-Thirds category than Panasonic, which has been steadily dialing up the goodness in its Lumix compact system cameras since introducing its first model four years ago.

While the GX1 is very light — just 11.2 ounces — its 16-megapixel sensor has almost twice the real estate of the Nikon’s CX chip and boasts improved white and color balance. Only the Sony NEX beat it on image and video quality, and just barely. The robust control options definitely qualify the GX1 as a shooter’s camera, but the elegant menu and touchscreen LCD welcome novices.
