The LUMIX G1 is as easy to use as a compact digital camera, with the stunning photo quality of a digital SLR camera. It's a new-generation digital interchangeable lens camera that does away with the mirror box and complies with the new Micro Four Thirds System standard. In short, the G1 writes an entirely new chapter in the evolution of the digital interchangeable lens camera.
The LUMIX G1 kit includes the new LUMIX G VARIO 14-45mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH/MEGA O.I.S lens.
Full-time Live View
Full-time Live View shows you before you shoot how the settings change the photo The G1's Full-time Live View is revolutionary. It lets you see in the LCD how adjusting the exposure, white balance, aperture and even the shutter speed will affect the photo. This kind of super-easy live view shooting has never before been possible with a conventional digital SLR camera.
Micro Four Thirds:
The open standard that led to the mirror-less body The G1 adopts the Micro Four Thirds System standard, developed as an extended version of the Four Thirds System standard for digital camera systems. Using this standard, and developing a camera body that eliminates the mirror box and optical viewfinder unit, Panasonic managed to reduce the lens mount diameter by about 6mm (compared with the conventional Four Thirds camera) and shorten the flange-back distance* by about half. The result is a digital interchangeable lens camera that's both extremely compact and highly mobile.

iA Mode automatically adjusts settings to fit the shooting condition
If you've hesitated to buy a digital SLR camera because you think they're hard to use, your wait is over. Intelligent Auto mode activates 6 detection and compensation functions that work automatically, leaving you free to just aim and shoot.

3.0-inch free-angle LCD with high 460,000-dot resolution
The large 3.0-inch LCD rotates 180° horizontally and 270° vertically, making it easy for you to capture dynamic shots from extreme angles without getting into an awkward position. And when the lighting around you changes, the LCD backlighting level automatically changes too, so you get comfortable, easy-on-the-eyes viewing at all times.
My Color mode puts you in control of the color
In My Color mode you can freely adjust the color, brightness and saturation of an image, while checking it with Full-time Live View. This gives you the power to control how your image will look. You can even make dramatic color changes.
Film mode - To capture photos with a special mood or expressiveness
Much like changing the film type in a film camera, you can enjoy a wide range of expression based on six color modes and three monochromatic modes. When the multi-film mode is selected, you can record pictures having up to three different effects with each press of the shutter button.
1920 x 1080-pixel HD (high-definition) photo recording
The G1 shoots wide-screen, 16:9, full-HD images. These images are simply breathtaking when displayed on an HDTV, which handles about four times the data of a standard-definition TV. Enjoy a whole new style of HDTV viewing with family and friends.
HD output-ready for the HDTV age
Just connect your G1 to an HDTV and you're ready for high definition viewing. If your TV is HDMI compatible, a single HDMI mini cable (optional) is all you need. Even better, with a Panasonic VIERA HDTV, you can also operate the G1 with the VIERA remote control for even easier viewing**.
