Panasonic GX1 Photos Image

We recently spent an afternoon shooting with the new Panasonic GX1 compact system camera ahead of today's launch. There are 69 sample JPEG photos and a Full HD 1080i movie.

We used three lenses with the GX1 - the 14-42mm X kit lens, 25mm F1.4 prime and the 45-175mm X telephoto zoom.

Please note that these samples were taken with a pre-production version of the GX1 and may not be indicative of the final shipping camera.

There's also an ISO sequence from 100 to 12800 so that you can see exactly what the 16 megapixel sensor is capable of.

A gallery of 69 sample photos and a movie taken with the Panasonic GX1 compact system camera.

We’ve fixed the problem now…

I am missing some usefull iso3200 shots with available light?! Thats the main point for me, are there any improvements to former mfts?
You are doing a row of iso-pics in bright daylight?! Nice, but ISO6400 or ISO3200 with 1/1000s is not quite my daily concern or use ;)

it really does show what a difference a decent camera can make when your taking photos im thinking about purchasing my first decent camera and i like the sound of this one

I too would be interested to see how the sensor performs at ISO 3,200 and 6,400 with the kit lens shooting available light at 1/30th to 1/60th sec.

your pics with the new 45-175 lens looking sometimes really blurred - i did test this lens in munich with my G3 and had the same experience even with much shorter exposure times you had. any idea why ?

great! thank you.

I would like your comments on what you see, I can’t really figure out what the pictures are worth.
How do they compare, in your opinion, to fx G3 ?

I am very impressed with the GX1 and considering getting one as a backup camera.

The photos are quite good!

I’m in the market for exactly this camera, I want a small camera to shoot on the street, with full photographic, erm, everything. Right now I’m always stranded between my compact and my DSLR.

The problem is, I neither look at these test shots and think, great! or rubbish! I just think, blah. There’s nothing to condone or condemn it, which is a problem when you can pick up competing compacts so cheaply, and DSLRs so reasonably

I think this will be a real alternative to the Olympus PEN range in its latest development.

I have a G3 and love it but it would be great to have some little extras to really make it a winner !

This GX1 would be a very good second body or backup choice to compliment the G series.

I’d certainly be interested if the price was ‘keenly’ priced.

Can’t wait to see it and test it for real !

Who’s going to be the dedicated supplier ?

This looks like just the camera i have been after i have a D700 and a GF1 at the moment i manily use the D700 for work shooting bands and stuff like that because it is so good for low light situations i use the GF1 for pretty much everything ellse that i do. But with the new GX1 i think i may find a small camera that i can use inplace of the D700 for low light live music photography cant wait to try one

How can I tell anything from shrunken photos?  Without full-size photo samples, I can’t judge the quality of the pictures.  These sample pictures serve no purpose.

8:38 pm - Thursday, November 17, 2011

#15 Danonino

I need at least full size (16mp) jpegs to be able to judge anything. Why are all the images underexposed? Why no “real world” iso 3200 shots?? I get so tired of these crappy reviews and crappy sample images. Do you need to hire someone with basic knowledge in photography?? Sorry, no, no thankyou Im extremely overqualified.

They all appear to be underexposed.

I’m with Richard on this they do seem to be underexposed… Is there a reason for this?
