Panasonic just announced its latest mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, the LUMIX DMC-GM1. The camera offers a large digital live MOS 16-megapixel sensor based on the Micro Four Thirds system standard, along with built-in Wi-Fi, three-inch LCD touch screen display, and Light Speed autofocus.
The new GM Series Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) camera offers a refined, classic style with aluminum dials and brushed metal. It aims to be the ideal camera for photographers wanting full manual control, intelligent assistance for easy shooting, and additional creative features.
WiFi connectivity enables the LUMIX GM1 to easily connect with smartphones and tablets. Whether you’re sharing a shot of your friend’s outfit before a night out, or updating your photography portfolio with your new favorite landscape, the LUMIX GM1 allows you to post images and video online as soon as they’ve been taken.
Coupled with the Panasonic Image App, which is available free of charge for Android and iOS operating systems from their respective app stores, wireless connectivity also enables Remote Shooting, allowing you to use your smartphone or tablet to act as a remote control for the LUMIX GM1 – ideal for taking group shots, or in situations where it isn’t practical to shoot directly from your camera.
A three-inch touch screen makes it easy to frame the perfect shot, set the focus and even trigger the shutter with a single touch. The LUMIX GM1 also features intelligent auto modes, providing point-and-shoot ease-of-use that doesn’t compromise on image quality.
A range of 22 creative filters also allow you to add a personal touch to any image, transforming your favorite pictures into stylistic works of art. You can even create your own Time Lapse Shot or Stop-motion Animation to display your creativity.
When discretion is demanded, the silent shutter feature enables you to make the camera nearly silent and capture images in places such as during concerts or exhibitions where photographs are not allowed to be taken due to distracting ‘clicks’.
With the camera’s Light Speed autofocus, it will be ready and waiting to capture that perfect photo opportunity with stunning accuracy. Low-light autofocus will also provide outstanding speed in extreme low-light conditions, so you can continue to express your creativity when you only have the stars and streetlights to rely on.
