The Panasonic GM1 is a sleek, compact, lightweight camera that delivers great images for the price. It comes packed with features, including a larger sensor, all tucked into a camera body TrustedReviews says is "one of the most compact" CSCs for sale. Panasonic made the GM1 zippy too, with TechRadar noting the "start up time is quick," and that "shot to shot time is also very good," but warns the kit lens may let you down during startup. Image quality was universally praised by critics, and PC Mag says it "produces images that are just as good as many larger Micro Four Thirds cameras." Unfortunately, the battery life isn't great, with Photography Blog calling it "so-so" but still their "only gripe" with the camera. Overall, with the GM1 Panasonic manages to deliver a compact camera capable of excellent images at an easy-to-swallow price point.
