If you are the kind of person who is looking for the flexibility of interchangeable lenses, but don’t want to put up with the added bulk typically associated with a lot of digital SLRs, it seems that Panasonic just might have the ticket for you. Te newly announced Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 is touted as the world’s smallest camera that allows for swappable lenses.
When you pick up a consumer-minded point-and-shoot, you are stuck with just one lens. Such is not the case with the Lumix DMC-G1, because you can swap out that glass at will to suit your particular shooting needs of the day. This significantly blurs the line between point-and-shoot and DSLR. The Lumix DMC-G1 is also a standard Micro Four Thirds camera.
Rounding out the features are a 12.1 megapixel image sensor, digital Live View high-res viewfinder, Panasonic’s Intelligent Auto mode, SD/SDHC compatibility, and your choice of black, red, or blue. Look for it this November.
