Gift Tip 13: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 Camera

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 is the world’s lightest and smallest system camera with built in flash. The standout property of this compact camera is the lens interchangeability option. It makes use of the high tech micro four thirds system wherein the camera uses the conventional model sensors itself but allows the manufacture of slimmer cameras by removing the mirror box and optical viewfinder. Hence the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 has a compact, user friendly design and is much lighter than DSLR cameras.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 is an efficient gadget for professional photography and high definition videos. It sports a 12.1 mega pixel sensor which provides elegant and crystal clear images with less work. The various modes of photography allowed by the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 helps one to redefine the art of still photography. The design and light weight are added advantages for the professionals in this field. The camera hosts a 3.0 inch 60 fps LCD which provides a friendly user environment.

The high image qualities are guaranteed by the use of a MOS sensor. The camera consumes low power even under heavy and low lighting conditions. The iA mode helps beginners avoid the most common mistakes made while capturing images. The other major features of the Panasonic DMC- GF1 include AF Tracking, Face Recognition, Intelligent Exposure, Intelligent ISO Control, Intelligent Scene, MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) and Selector Face Detection AF/AE. These features help to capture images with the highest clarity and timing.


The camera will record high definition videos at a resolution of 720p [1280 x 720] and use AVCHD Lite compression technology to provide good quality videos. A dedicated video button has been provided for the comfort of the user. The high end Movie Program mode provides options for capturing custom videos by selectively blurring the background and foreground, a feature that, until recently, was only offered on high cost movie camcorders. The LUMIX DMC-GF1 includes the new My Color mode, which hosts seven preset effects namely Expressive, Pure, Retro, Elegant, Monochrome, Silhouette, dynamic art and Custom. Each of these modes let users manually set the color, saturation levels and brightness.

The biggest problem that might be pointed out about the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 is that it is priced slightly higher than its counterparts and the availability of the system is not guaranteed everywhere.

Great Gift For
The Panasonic Lumix DMC- GF1 is a perfect gift for people who approach photography at a professional level.

Price and Where to Buy
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 is selling for $899.95 on Amazon.com when in stock.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
