Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Gold Award December 2013
If you're happy using a touch screen, and if fewer dials and controls aren't a deal-breaker, then you should take a good look at this camera. It's a good (and convenient) companion to have at your side.

Conclusion

The GM1 offers many of the features and image quality of its Lumix GX7 sibling in a much smaller, lighter package. A few concessions have been made to reduce the size so drastically, namely a lower-capacity battery, but it's an excellent option for casual shooting.

Reasons to buy

  • Extremely small and lightweight
  • Very good image quality
  • Reliable transfer of image files over Wi-Fi
  • Truly silent shutter mode
  • Good touchscreen
  • Compatible with all Micro Four Thirds lenses

Things to consider

  • Poor noise reduction
  • Low battery capacity
  • Small controls can be fiddly
  • Focus mode dial not useful
  • Video resolution tops out at 1080 30p
  • Slow 1/50 flash sync speed

Suggested for

Street shooting, casual portraits, moderately low light.

Not suggested for

Fast action, telephoto shooting, very low light.

Product Description


Panasonic LUMIX GM1 - Timeless Iconic Design Meets Modern Micro Tech

The LUMIX GM1 design is reminiscent of the iconic and stylish rangefinder cameras of the past. Yet under its magnesium alloy frame lays the modern performance features that satisfy today's trend-sensitive camera enthusiasts.

Every exterior part is designed to exacting detail, giving the GM1 its sleek, stylish look and feel, while a modern micro technology compact size makes it the perfect choice to take with you anywhere.
A light weight polished magnesium alloy frame encases the critical electronics and assures lasting durability for the LUMIX GM1. All exterior dials, buttons and lever components have been crafted of aluminum and thoughtfully placed for convenient operation.
LUMIX GM1 boasts an outstandingly compact profile which was made possible through years of ingenious Panasonic LUMIX G Series camera inventions for downsizing. Owning an interchangeable lens camera used to mean carrying around an unfashionable bulky camera. But because of LUMIX micro technology, the GM1 retains a large camera sensor, and makes possible a new micro sized 12-32mm lens with built in optical stabilization. The LUMIX GM1 micro technology delivers both high quality picture and Full HD video recording in one system, making it perfect for hybrid image capture.
Unwire your creativity with the LUMIX Image App and connect your Smartphone or tablet to the LUMIX GM1. Shoot and view remotely, instantly transfer to another device or your social networks, and even geotag your photos using your Smartphones GPS. The iconic and stylish LUMIX GM1 is changing photography like no other camera today.
Advanced feature dials.
Next generation Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds image sensor technology.

The DMC-GM1 does not compromise on image quality, even with its remarkably compact body. It achieves this by incorporating the large Digital Live MOS Sensor based on the Micro Four Thirds System standard, together with the high-performance Venus Engine. High-precision, high-speed AF also helps to capture even the most fleeting moments. All of this makes it an ideal camera for someone who truly cares about both image quality and style.

Style Name: Camera with Lens Kit
To add to other reviews here, let me highlight the differences between the GM1 and the larger Lumix GX7 introduced this year which has the identical, excellent, image sensor. General comments on why I chose the GM1 over other µ4/3 cameras at the end. I'll borrow liberally from information available in several online reviews.

First, although the sensor is identical (and available image quality identical to the very well reviewed GX7), there are a few differences in capabilities (both better and worse):

1. The GM1 can achieve 1/16,000 maximum shutter speed. The GX7 can do 1/8,000. Although not useful in most shots, it is equivalent to having an extra stop of built-in ND filter for wide open aperture shots in bright light. (There is not built-in ND filter, but such a fast maximum shutter speed achieves the same benefit).

2. The flash sync is 1/50 on the GM1. (In my view this is just not a concern. Anyone looking for flexibility and
performance in flash photography is not interested in a compact camera without a flash hotshoe like the GM1. However, the pop up flash can be held tilted up towards the ceiling, so the most useful application of a flash as bounce fill, in my view, is built right in conveniently.)

3. There is no bulb exposure available (e.g. shutter open for as long as you need). This is because the sensor needs to dissipate heat, and in a small camera body it's hard for the CMOS chip to dissipate heat for more than a minute. How often do you use exposures >one minute?

4. There is only 1080/60i video, not 60p. Same reason as above--60p generates more heat than the small camera body can effectively dissipate. With that said, you can choose H.264 as a codec and 24p for very easily editable, movie like HD video.

Style Name: Camera with Lens Kit
Christmas came early for me when somebody (who shall remain nameless) left my Olympus PEN E-PM1 on the top of my car. Somewhere around 60 miles per hour, the camera shuffled off the roof and into oblivion, which suddenly placed me in the market for a replacement.

I've used Micro Four Thirds almost since its inception, upgrading bodies periodically as notable improvements found their way into the system. I have and still use the larger Olympus OM-D E-M5 which I greatly enjoy, but I really like having a smaller body with a pancake lens for family events and other situations where discretion and size win over ergonomics. I also find that a simple camera like the E-PM1 is easier to hand to the family member (who, again, shall remain nameless!) while generating good results from the automatic modes. The E-M5 can be a bit overwhelming due to all of its bells and whistles.

It was serendipitous that the GM1 was announced right around the time of "the E-PM1 incident;" even smaller than the E-PM1, new sensor, touchscreen, wifi, more buttons, flash... the list goes on. I waited for it to come out, and received my order on the very day before we left for our holiday vacation.

Out of the box: good golly, it's SMALL! I mean, you know it's small by looking at photos online, but it just really does not do the thing justice. It's small enough that I can wrap the camera in a single hand, and indeed I normally shoot with my thumb wrapped around the left side of the body and my fingers around the right.

Style Name: Camera with Lens Kit
I had to order the all black version from Hong Kong at a premium. I believe Panasonic is trying to differentiate their product from the rest of the high end compact offerings in the U.S. with their stylish two tone scheme, but I worried about the silver coating wearing over the years. I take meticulous care of my tools and want them to stay looking good.

In retrospect and with respect to the commenter Charles I changed "silver paint" above to "silver coating" and will add that I had read somewhere that the lens was constructed with plastic. I had visions of a silver paint scratched off a plastic lens.

I needn't have worried. The part of the lens that would get most of the wear is definitely metal and the extensions may be a tough composite or may be magnesium... they are a different temperature than the other metal when cool.

So, if you like the two tone, I would say the silver finish should be plenty durable.

I am not going to address Image Quality in this quick review as the other sites have already affirmed that the Image Quality is nearly identical to the acclaimed Panasonic GX7, in a word, remarkable!

Instead I want to address the usability, as the User Interface is why I have been using Panasonic cameras since the GF1.

The build quality of the GM1 is good, very lightweight but solid.

Comparing this camera to my GX1, it is a obviously a lot smaller but also feels much less dense.

While the GX1 has a button for every control imaginable, except a the Depth of Field Preview button- (for which you can designate a Function button) the GM1 has relatively few buttons.

I bought this camera on faith because I love the Panasonic GUI.
