The Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 poses a few interesting questions. Like: isn't this a very good compact camera that offers smartphone functionality? Or: am I really going to spend this much money on my next smartphone? And last but not least: am I actually any good at photography at all?
Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1
In this post you'll see a few comparison shots in low light in a quiet street in the old center of Amsterdam, captured with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1, the Nokia Lumia 1020 and Lumia 930. I've been using quite a few settings to get the best result from all cameras, and from all shots I captured I selected the best.
This is the first part of my review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 with some comparison shots with the Nokia Lumia 1020 (and 1520). What you will see here is mostly limited to daylight photography. I will touch on low light photography, using the flash, burst video and video in future reviews. This review is long enough as it is and moreover it takes time to master the camera and get the results I think are worth sharing since they do the device justice.
Not long ago, I started a series of posts about smartphone camera user interfaces (with Sony's Xperia Z3).The Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 proves to offer the most extensive and elaborate one ever on a smartphone. In this post you'll find over 50 (!) screenshots of what you may expect to find in its menu.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 has just entered the building. Picked it up in Germany this weekend - a moment I've been looking forward to for days now. Returning from Germany late in the evening, the first thing worth sharing at this moment are the shots I captured during unpacking the device, a few shots with the previous dedicated smartphone cameras and my very first impressions.
