Panasonic’s DMC-GX1 Micro Four Thirds Camera Price Drops Again: $239
There haven’t been too many raging deals lately, but if you’re in the market for a new micro four thirds camera, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 has dropped to basically ludicrously low pricing. I’m not even entirely sure how Panasonic is making a profit at this price point. Just a few weeks ago it was listed for $300, but now it’s down to $239. It’s not that the camera is bad either, as reviews have been pretty positive. At this price though, it’s not much of a risk.
The GX1 shares many of the characteristics of the recently announced Olympus PEN E-P5, but for a considerable savings. The Olympus is nearly $1500, so if you want to try micro four thirds, the GX1 is a safer bet to place on the new medium- significantly less risk.
The GX1 features:
- 16MP Live MOS Sensor
- 3-CPU Venus Engine
- Micro Four Thirds System
- 3.0″ 460k-Dot Touchscreen LCD Monitor
- Full HD 1080i Video at 60fps
- 20fps Continuous Shooting
- Optical Image Stabilization
- ISO 160-12800
- Light Speed Auto Focus System
- Movie iA and Creative Movie
Not bad for the price, right?
