Great Compact Digital video and still camera

Several people had stated that a camera won’t make your shots better. I contend that while it won’t make you a professional photographer it can enable you to shoot in situations that you never could before.

I recently purchased the Panasonic DMC-GF1 and the 14-45 mm and 20 mm F1.7 lenses. I couldn’t be happier with the purchase. The camera is not much bigger than a Canon G series yet it takes very good video and stills. I have compared it extensively to the point and shoot I was using before and there is no comparison.

Now I am not claiming that my shots or footage are pro grade. However, they are better than any indoor shots that you could take with any other compact camera or sub $1000 camcorder.

If any of you would like to take decent low light shots and good HD video then definitely look into the DMC-GF1. You can buy it with the excellent 20 mm F1.7 lens for $899. That may seem like a lot but decent HD video cameras cost $800-$900 by themselves and stills from those camcorders are useless.

Have a look.
