Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 announcement clippings

The DMC-G1 is a digital interchangeable lens camera with an incredibly small body. This compact size was achieved by using a mount system that complies with the new Micro Four Thirds System standard, which has been applied for the first time in the world in the DMC-G1*, together with an innovative mirror-less structure in a digital interchangeable lens camera. By combining the remarkably compact body with the compact, lightweight LUMIX G lens and its advanced functions, which are as easy to use as those on a digital compact camera, the super-mobile DMC-G1 shatters the old notion that all digital SLRs are bulky, heavy and hard to use. This, plus the superior image quality made possible by a 4/3-type 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor, draws a clear line between the DMC-G1 and all conventional digital SLR cameras.

Despite the DMC-G1's ultracompact design, it comes fully equipped with leading-edge features for outstanding ease of use, such as a LVF(Live View Finder) and free-angle LCD, both with Full-time Live View. The DMC-G1 also boasts iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode, a feature that took the world by storm in LUMIX digital compact cameras. iA Mode brings together a full range of functions — led by MEGA O.I.S., AF Tracking, Intelligent ISO Control, Face Detection AF/AE, Intelligent Scene Selector, and Intelligent Exposure — that together let users take strikingly beautiful photos with maximum ease every time they shoot.
