The DMC-GM1 records smooth, high-resolution full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 60i (60 Hz) / 50i (50 Hz) videos in AVCHD or MP4* (MPEG-4 / H.264) format*. The DMC-GM1 also supports 1080/24p native mode with 24 Mbps in AVCHD format bringing impressive afterimage to the footage. In addition, the P / A / S / M mode also lets you enjoy expressive video recording. Thanks to optimum pixel-mix technology which is made possible by the improvement of sensor sensitivity, sharpness and clarity are improved in motion images, too.
The P / A / S / M mode lets you enjoy expressive video recording by manually setting aperture and shutter speed.
The touch AF in video recording lets you enjoy professional-like rack focusing. In addition, the newly adopted Touch AE (Auto Exposure) function allows setting focus and exposure at a single touch on the subject displayed on the monitor.
For more practical control over focusing, the DMC-GM1 incorporates Focus Peaking function that shows the peak of focus in MF and AF+MF mode. You can see the peaking of focus while monitoring the subject in live view. It can be set to HIGH / LOW / OFF and the color can also be changed according to the color of the shooting scene during live view. You can take advantage of this function when controlling the camera with smartphone / tablet via Wi-Fi® in both photo / video recording.
The Creative Control renders highly unique expressions by matching the colors to your subject and surroundings. In Miniature Effect Mode, the video recorded is played back in 10x fast-forwarding making it more comical to watch*.
* Sound will not be recorded with Miniature Effect in Creative Control Mode and approximately 1/10 of the time period is recorded. (If you record for 10 minutes, the resulting motion picture recording will be approximately 1 minute long.)
Leave the camera to record stationary observation of subjects such as flowers coming into bloom or scudding cloud. The series of consequent images can be combined in a camera to produce a time lapse video.
The Stop Motion Animation function enables producing a stop motion (stop frame) video in camera with the pictures that are sequentially shot while moving the object by degrees. This effect makes the object appear as if it is moving by itself.
