Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 was introduced in September 2009 as the third camera in Panasonic’s Lumix G-series, using the Micro Four Thirds system. It was the first model in the “GF” line, which is primarily distinguished from the other Lumix G cameras by the lack of an integrated electronic viewfinder.

It has a 12.1 megapixel sensor, 1280 × 720 HD recording in AVCHD Lite format, an optional hot-shoe mounted electronic viewfinder, and a 3-inch LCD with 460,000 dots.

A Dry Period (feb 27, 2011)

Steadying Micro 4/3 with Manual Lens (feb 14, 2011)

Voigtlander makes adapters for Leica lenses so that they may be used on micro four-thirds cameras. It works well. But using a cropped manual lens on such a camera makes it difficult to avoid camera-shake in low lighting.

Tripod for Lumix GF1 (feb 12, 2011)
