Please note: This is now a camera-only rental, you will need to also rent a lens. Now that there is a sufficient amount of Micro4/3 lenses available, we have unbundled the kit lens from the camera body and lowered the price so that you can choose exactly which lens(es) you want to order with the camera.
Panasonic’s entry in the “small as a point-and-shoot” Micro 4/3 sweepstakes, the GF-1 has the standard 12.1 Megapixel 4/3 sensor. There is a 3 inch, 460,000 pixel LCD with automatic backlight control, and the GF-1 captures 720P HD video at 60 fps. It can record video as Motion JPG and the camera supports autofocus during video recording.
The GF-1 has has a built-in pop-up flash (suitable for fill flash and that’s about it), can shoot at ISO 3200 (notice we said ‘can shoot’ not ‘can produce usable images’ – ISO 800 has some noise, ISO 1600 is usable with some post-processing.) The hotshoe can be used either for an external flash or for the optional DMW-LVF1 Live View Finder.
