Hands on: Panasonic Lumix GH1 review

Panasonic adds video to its Micro Four Thirds stunner

In the end we grudgingly gave back the GH1 to Panasonic, impressed with its ease of use and filled with nothing but praise for what it brings to the camera market.

If you are completely non-plussed about having video capabilities on a 'not quite technically speaking' DSLR, then give the GH1 a miss and point your focus to the G1.

Panasonic has been pitching its G1 and GH1 cameras as "Like an SLR only SMLR". At £1,299 the GH1 is an impressive machine perfect for the mid-range camera enthusiast. We only wish the price was also that little bit SMLR.
