Panasonic G1 (the mini SLR)



     I recently purchased the Panasonic LUMIX G1. This is a mini slr camera. It is a fierce camera that fits perfectly into the contours of my hand. The photo quality is AMAZING. On my first day exploring the features it was like a date with my true love. I had so much fun shooting my friends, objects and scenery. I was also trigger happy on my trip up to San Francisco. I can't say this enough, the photos were grand. The color, the focus, the quality. It all came together on the swiveling camera screen and even more once I connected this camera to my computer. On a larger screen the pictures were even more beautiful. For the price, around $460, it is well worth it.



     There are hardly any flaws with this camera. For the use and it not really being a "true" SLR, I cannot complain. The camera allows one to save their "Favorite" settings under a setting located on the dial near the shutter button. This camera does not have a shutter therefore it is SILENT. I was able to take pictures of my very shy friend Gabby without her even noticing until i pointed it out. This camera is loads of fun. I purchased Kodak made filters as well. UV, florescent, glare, etc. These filters just added value to my work. The quality can pretty much be professional, if only i had greater light setups or flash. Unfortunately I don't have the resources to purchase such add ons, but for the time being, this is love.
