Panasonic Lumix GX1 Launch in Malaysia 2011

Panasonic Announces Newest Compact Micro System Camera,
LUMIX GX1 Excels in Speed, Image Quality and Size

It just came in about the right time as I am deciding which compact digital camera I should buy when I go travel again.On 19th December 2011, I have came to witness the latest launch of Panasonic’s premium line of Compact Micro System Camera, LUMIX DMC-GX1, which joins Panasonic’s award-winning LUMIX G Series of digital cameras. Acclaimed for their high image quality with small and compact body and lenses targeted at high amateur photographers and prosumers.

Other new introduction includes: Panasonic’s first dedicated and ‘world’s smallest’ 3D compact camera the LUMIX DMC-3D1; Touch-screen compact model LUMIX DMC-FH7, 24x superzoom LUMIX DMC-FZ150 and the first (as of 31 August 2011) integrated twin-lens 2D/3D camcorder fully compatible with AVCHD 3D/Progressive standard – HDC Z10000.

Speaking at the launch, Jeff said that: “Panasonic are offering choices and flexibility to empower our consumers in photography and videography to suit all users from point and shoot to high amateurs with the new launch of LUMIX cameras and camcorder. Panasonic partnership with Leica for 10 years has been a good venture and harnesses our Lumix brand. Our line up for lens is wide ranging from wide zoom, standard zoom, telephoto, macro, single focal length to 3D lens.”

The DMC-GX1's image quality comes from a large DSLR-sized 16 megapixel sensor and newly advanced Live MOS sensor and Venus engine with a maximum ISO of 12,800. The camera uses a Micro Four Thirds mount, and is compatible with both Panasonic and Olympus lenses including the standard 14-42mm zoom and the Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42mm retractable lens.

With an autofocus speed of 0.09 second -- one can focus simply by touching the subject on the 3-inch, 460,000-dot touchscreen. There's also an external EVF (external view finder) option, which attaches to the camera's hot shoe and offers a 1.44 million-dot display with 100-percent field of view. Movie buffs can capture 1080/60i HD video, with either MP4 or AVCHD compression. GX1 can also shoot in RAW, and offers the complete gamut of advanced shooting modes.

LUMIX DMC-GX1 will be available in black and silver. Panasonic will sell it as a kit with a 14-42mm power zoom lens (dual function) for RM3,099, and as a kit with twin lens 14mm plus 14-42mm for RM2,999 starting in December.

To date, Panasonic has a total of 12 compact camera models, 1 3D model, and 5 G series models ranging from GH2, G3, GF3 to GX1. GH is the flagship model with high specification line; G is the stylish and active line; GF is the compact and fashionable line and GX is the premium line.

Yes, I have tested the Lumix GX1 and was just the camera I need it for my travel and food hunting! Come and check out this cool Lumix GX1 at camera shops or Panasonic outlets!
