Panasonic DMC-G1 failed to meet NYT reviewer expectation

October 24th, 2008 · No Comments

Despite of being the first camera adopting the Micro Four Thirds format, Panasonic DMC G1 still has some feature that failed to meet New York Times’ reviewer expectation. On his review of Panasonic DMC-G1 David Pogue writes that he doesn’t suggest you to buy the G1 now because of three reasons:

1. There are only two lenses for the G1 so far. You need a lens adapter to use the many existing, non-Micro Four Thirds lenses, but you will lose the auto focus feature of G1.
2. The G1 is only slightly smaller than the Olympus E420, a full SLR. Panasonic should be able to shrink the size much smaller.
3. It doesn’t shoot video. This feature will be the emphasis of its 2009 models.

Still there are many features of G1 that has potential to push this camera beyond expectation such as Large sensors to capture better image quality, the point-and-shoot, etc. We can only hope that Panasonic developing the DMC-G1 camera on the right direction by improving its weak features on the next release.
