The Panasonic DMC-GF1 is a compact interchangeable-lens camera using the Micro Four Thirds system. The GF1 features a built-in flash, fast AF system, an optional external viewfinder (the LVF1), and 720p video capture -- the first of their Micro Four Thirds cameras to do so.

Description

Panasonic's Lumix GX1 is an interchangeable-lens camera using the Micro Four Thirds System and shares the same Live MOS sensor as its brethren, the Lumix DMC-G3, but has a significantly improved digital image processing engine. And like its predecessors, the Lumix GF1 and GF2, it will use an external viewfinder — the tilt-shift 1.4m dot DMW-LVF2, Live View Finder.

The Lumix DMC-GF3 is Panasonic's successor to the DMC-GF2. It has a new processor combined with the same 12.1 megapixel sensor from its predecessor while losing the hotshoe, the electronic viewfinder port, and some of the controls in its redesigned body.
