DETAIL: In spite of the overcast conditions, the GX1 has saturated the colours just enough to give them a lift, while we were pleased to note that there's some detail retained in what could have ended up as an overexposed, white sky.

TOY CAMERA: The GX1's Toy Camera creative effect adds a dark vignette around the edges of the frame, presenting the opportunity to create some moody shots.

SHARP: At ISO 1600 there's a little visible noise, but plenty of sharp detail is recorded and colours remain punchy.
