Not only is the Lumix GM1 a formidable still camera, the shooter is also capable of some impressive video capture as well. Video capabilities include full HD 1920x1080 at 60i and 50i that is encoded in AVCHD and MP4. A mechanical shutter means that the camera is also capable of high burst mode shots up to five frames per second, while the electronic shutter is good for up to 40 frames per second.

 

 

A 3-inch touchscreen LCD is located on the back to aid in ensuring that you get the perfect shot every time. MSRP is set at $750 for the Lumix GM1 with a 12-32mm kit lens. Having been a DSLR guy for many years now, micro four thirds cameras are starting to appeal to me more every day. While I will never give up my DSLR, I would like to own one of these little cameras for every day snapping.
