Panasonic GX-1 now shipping in the US

Panasonic GX-1 camera is now shipping in the US and is currently in stock at Adorama.

Here are the main features of the GX-1 model:

The 16.0-megapixel Live MOS sensor plays a big role in high quality image rendering. With the dedicated circuit which reads out signals with minimum noise, the level of noise is significantly suppressed by more than 66%
Taking full advantage of the Live MOS sensor and Venus Engine, images to be shot in low-lit situations at max. 12800 high ISO sensitivity setting is stunningly clear with highly sharp resolution
In addition to the high-speed signal processing with its 3 CPUs, the image processor Venus Engine boasts its excellent performance with an adoption of noise reduction technology for even higher quality of image
By adopting the Micro Four Thirds System standard, the DMC-GX1 features mirrorless structure that eliminates the mirror box and optical viewfinder unit
The Intelligent D-range Control offers even more natural looking by optimizing the exposure for each part of an image, preventing blocked shadows and blown highlights and helping ensure that gradation and details are reproduced beautifully including the blue color of the sky
With the Intelligent Resolution technology, 3 areas - outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas - are automatically detected the most effective way according to the area
As a camera from the new premium GX line of LUMIX G Micro System, the external design of the camera has been developed with no compromising in every detail
The Level Gauge lets the camera detect the horizontal / vertical angle of view with its internal level working with the acceleration sensor. Photos shot in a portrait aspect will be automatically displayed vertically whatever lens is used
In spite of its compact size, the DMC-GX1's built-in flash has a light intensity that is equivalent to GN7.6 & you can adjust the intensity within a range of ±EV 2 in 1/3 EV steps. It also lets you use 1st curtain sync
Meticulous attention was paid to operating ease when designing the DMC-GX1. The body design allows you to freely customize their settings. The DMC-GX1 provides uncompromising performance and delivers the ultimate in intuitive operating and shooting
The DMC-GX1 gives you smooth, free, touch-control shooting. When recording, you can operate the auto focus and shutter release at the same time with just a touch
The DMC-GX1 has a 3.0-inch 3:2 460,000-dot LCD with a 100% field of view. And a wide-viewing angle that lets you frame your shot in a variety of ways for both shooting and viewing
Both the LCD and the optional DMW-LVF2 (Live View Finder) give you a Full-time Live View of what you're shooting with a field of view of approx. 100%
The Dust Reduction System in the DMC-GX1 helps eliminate this possibility by placing the Supersonic Wave Filter in front of the Live MOS sensor, between the low-pass filter and shutter. Vibrating vertically around 50,000 times per second, the filter repels dust and other particles effectively
The DMC-GX1 features the approx. 0.09 second of ultra high-speed Light Speed AF which is achieved by reducing the detection time for focusing by the synchronization of the lens and the sensor at 120 fps
Compared with the phase-difference system AF, the contrast AF of the DMC-GX1 boasts higher accuracy even in shooting at small F value
The DMC-GX1 is an advanced photographic tool for recording not only great photos but also beautiful full HD 1,920 x 1,080 videos in AVCHD (MPEG-4 / H.264) format
The DMC-GX1 can record videos in MP4 format. This format is suitable for editing videos on a computer or uploading those to websites
You can use the Creative Control and Photo Style for shooting videos. It renders highly unique expressions by matching the colors to your subject and surroundings
In the iA Plus Mode and the Creative Control, the range of defocus can be adjusted by just moving the slider with your finger
You can manually choose from 6 color types to get even more detailed image settings, or to match the shooting situation
You can equip the DMC-GX1 with an optional 1,440,000-dot equivalent Live View Finder (LVF) DMW-LVF2 featuring a magnification of approximately 1.4x (0.7x) and 100% field of view
In the iA Mode, the camera does all the work, leaving you free to compose your shot and capture the moment. You just press, aim and shoot
The compact 3D-capable interchangeable lens, LUMIX G 12.5mm / F12, allows easier handling and instant 3D shooting with cameras without a special structure for 3D shooting
Photos or videos recorded in AVCHD on the SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Cards are easy to view on a Panasonic VIERA TV
