Cameras (like sports cars, camping/adventure gear, professional musical instruments, and top shelf audio/video components) get much more interesting (and expensive) as they increase in complexity – the GH1 is a case in point.
The bottom line here is that the $1500 GH1 is a near perfect choice for shooters graduating from a prosumer/long zoom digicam to their first dSLR. For more serious photographers who eschew video in favor of still photography, the GH1 might not be their best option.
- Best video of any currently available dSLR
- Fully articulated live view LCD
- Super kit lens
- Lacks total functionality of a true dSLR
- Current lens lens selection is thin
