Panasonic GF1 – Retro Inspired Micro Four-Thirds Leaked
I loved the Panasonic G1 and it proved itself to be idiot proof as I almost won a competition with it when I had one to review.
Now it seems that Panasonic has checked out the Olympus E-P1 and thought retro is where it’s at.
Say hello to the Panasonic GF1.
So, what’s the difference ‘tween the G1 and GH1 compared with GF1?
Well, remember that they had modern little DSLR-type bodies? The Panasonic GF1 is much squarer and is more like the nostalgically styled Panasonic LX3 in the looks department.
The new old-looking Panasonic GF1 get’s a 12.1 megapixel sensor, a 3 inch screen and AVCHD Lite 720p video.
You also get a pop-up flash and a hot shoe for attaching accessories – Panasonic also followed Olympus by dropping the viewfinder.
Lens-wise, in the leaked pics thereâ€™s a compact 20mm F1.7 and a Leica 45mm F2.8.
As you’d expect from leaked news – no other firm details out there just yet.
