LUMIX Global TOP > DSLM CAMERAS > DMC-GX1 > Sophisticated Premium Design for Greater Control
As a camera from the new premium GX line of LUMIX G, the external design of the camera has been developed with no compromising in every detail.
Available in silver and black, the DMC-GX1 offers luxurious comfort in shooting experience with a stunning performance and a host of functions, to be a great partner that is always in your sight, in your mind.
The Level Gauge lets the camera detect the horizontal / vertical angle of view with its internal level working with the acceleration sensor. Photos shot in a portrait aspect will be automatically displayed vertically whatever lens is used.
In spite of its compact size, the DMC-GX1's built-in flash has a light intensity that is equivalent to GN6.0 (ISO100), GN7.6 (ISO160), and you can adjust the intensity within a range of ±EV 2 in 1/3 EV steps. It also lets you use 1st curtain sync. flash and 2nd curtain sync. flash to capture nightscapes with a natural flow of light.
Meticulous attention was paid to operating ease when designing the DMC-GX1. The body design allows you to freely customize their settings. The DMC-GX1 provides uncompromising performance, and delivers the ultimate in intuitive operating and shooting.
The function the user changes its setting can be assigned to the 2 external buttons and 2 menus in the software tab for direct reach.
A total of 4 custom setting patterns can be memorized to the camera (1 on C1 for direct switch and 3 on C2 ).
Frequently used functions can be quickly retrieved and easily switched by using the Q.MENU button. You can also arrange the Q.MENU to your liking by simply dragging and dropping icons into position.
The DMC-GX1 gives you smooth, free, touch-control shooting. When recording, you can operate the auto focus and shutter release at the same time with just a touch. When playing back, you can drag the image across the screen with a finger to browse a collection of photos as you flip over the pages of the book.
Zoom operation can be controlled with touch control when the Power Zoom lens* of LUMIX G is attached. Speed of zooming can be adjusted in 2 steps.
* LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 14-42mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. (H-PS14042) and LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 45-175mm / F4.0-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. (H-PS45175).
The DMC-GX1 has a 3.0-inch 3:2 460,000-dot LCD with a 100% field of view. And a wide-viewing angle that lets you frame your shot in a variety of ways for both shooting and viewing. LUMIX's acclaimed Intelligent LCD function also automatically adjusts the brightness in 11 steps according to shooting conditions. It lets you share the fun of viewing images with family and friends, too.
Shutter Speed Effect Preview
Both the LCD and the optional DMW-LVF2 (Live View Finder) give you a Full-time Live View of what you're shooting with a field of view of approx. 100%. The viewing method can be selected to match your shooting conditions and composition, which makes them ideal for active shooting.
You can confirm the depth of field and shutter speed effects by pressing the Function button, if you select the Preview mode.
If dust or other foreign matter gets inside the camera when you're changing lenses, it could cling to the image sensor and show up as a spot in your photos. The Dust Reduction System in the DMC-GX1 helps eliminate this possibility by placing the Supersonic Wave Filter in front of the Live MOS sensor, between the low-pass filter and shutter. Vibrating vertically around 80,000 times per second, the filter repels dust and other particles effectively.
Without Dust Reduction
Flow of the Dust Reduction System
1. Power off.
2. When the camera is turned on, the filter vibrates to shake off dirt and dust.
3. The dirt and dust adhere to the absorption part to prevent it from appearing in the sensor image.
With further optimization and rationalization in electric design, the DMC-GX1 excels in energy consumption and features approx. 11% longer battery life than the DMC-G3 which complies with the same battery pack DMW-BLD10.
