Compact System Cameras

I have just fallen in love, I saw it on the front of last weeks amatuerphotographer magazine and it was lust at first sight. The new Panasonic DMC GX1 when I manage to get my hands on it I hope it lives up to what my heart is telling me. I know this blog is about retro but this camera looks to be harking back to the times gone by but with a modern heart. Shame I cant afford it .


  1. Hi Don. Be sure to check out the size carefully. So many modern digital cameras seem to be designed for people with petite fingers and 20-20 vision. I am a bloke so my digits are big. I am also old, so my vision isn't perfect. If you've ever tried to use a digital in bright sunshine you'll know why a proper viewfinder is an absolute must too.
    My current wish list starts and ends with the Fujifilm X10, just launched at a tad under £600. Maybe by this time next year it will be down to the more appropriate sub-£400 price. It is about the same size as many non-slr 35mm cameras. Dream on!

  2. I too like the fuji X10 and the X1000 But it is the prices thatI dont like. I will have to keep looking from afar.
