Features

Encased In Reinforced Metallic Alloy A light weight polished magnesium alloy frame encases the critical electronics and assures lasting durability for the LUMIX GM1. All exterior dials, buttons and lever components have been crafted of aluminum and thoughtfully placed for convenient operation.

Shoot and view remotely, instantly transfer to another device or your social networks, and even geotag your photos using your Smartphones GPS. The iconic and stylish LUMIX GM1 is changing photography like no other camera today.
 
 
Timeless Iconic Design Meets Modern Micro Tech The LUMIX GM1 design is reminiscent of the iconic and stylish rangefinder cameras of the past. Yet under its magnesium alloy frame lays the modern performance features that satisfy today's trend-sensitive camera enthusiasts. Every exterior part is designed to exacting detail, giving the GM1 its sleek, stylish look and feel, while a modern micro technology compact size makes it the perfect choice to take with you anywhere.
Large Sensor Size Leading To Cutting Edge Hybrid Quality Performance LUMIX GM1 boasts an outstandingly compact profile which was made possible through years of ingenious Panasonic LUMIX G Series camera inventions for downsizing. Owning an interchangeable lens camera used to mean carrying around an unfashionable bulky camera. But because of LUMIX micro technology, the GM1 retains a large camera sensor, and makes possible a new micro sized 12-32mm lens with built in optical stabilization. The LUMIX GM1 micro technology delivers both high quality picture and Full HD video recording in one system, making it perfect for hybrid image capture.

DMC-GM1K is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect everyday camera If I had to stick with one micro 4/3rds camera, the GM1 would be it. It's small, it's good looking, and it certainly performs. The battery life, small size, and photo quality makes it a constant companion-- travel wouldn't be the same without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing little camera I have used DSLRs for about seven years now. I picked one of these up to have something smaller to carry with me for less serious ventures. I have not been disappointed. I use this camera more than my heavy professional gear nine times out of ten.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little camera. I've owned a lot of Micro Four Thirds cameras in the past few years, and the GM1 is really exceptional by comparison. It's so tiny that it can be carried around like a small compact camera, yet it has image quality that beats any compact. The kit lens that it comes with is terrific, and you can set it up to behave like a much larger camera in terms of adjustablity. The lens selection for this system is also terrific. Really an exceptional little camera!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good M4/3 Backup Camera I purchased the GM1 as a secondary micro four-thirds camera, to replace a similarly-sized point and shoot. Overall, I am very happy with the camera. The construction is excellent, although the usability is a little compromised. For me, the camera is replacing a Canon S100, which shares a virtually identical footprint for the body. The control layout is very similar, although I've found the control and button placement to be better on the Canon. The changes are very small, although they make quite a difference. I can see why Panasonic made some changes on the GM5. With that aside, it is bewildering to think that this is an interchangeable lens camera given its size. The grip can be rectified by using either the OEM product, or one of the numerous aftermarket offerings. The one thing I'd love Panasonic to do - I really hope they read these reviews! - is to update the firmware to allow the Video Record button to be mapped as a custom function button. You can remap the Fn1 button on top, and the soft keys on the touchscreen. You can even disable the Video Record button! But unlike Olympus M4/3 cameras, you cannot remap it. PLEASE Panasonic, this would only be a minor change in the firmware; make it so we can use the Video Record button for other functions! This is a great backup camera that can easily be slipped into a pocket, or thrown into a gear bag. The feature set is great, as is the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this more the the G6 I have the G6 and this GM1 in orange. I prefer the GM1 and use it more often. I love the size and feel of this little gem. I bring it everywhere. The wifi works great, I just direct connect to my ipad, edit on the ipad and off the images go to social media.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best little camera I've ever owned! It's gives me more than I ever expected, and the photos are the crisp and beautiful. I especially like what I can achieve in low lighting for interiors and outside at night.

  • How do I install firmware in my camera using an SD card?
    Digital Still Camera Firmware Update Guide.

    1) Preparation before attempting the update.

    A. Make sure the camera's battery is completely charged. If the battery is not completely charged the firmware update will not begin. Format the SD memory card in the camera, then take a couple of pictures.
    B. Turn off the camera.

    2) Copying the Firmware to your memory card.
    A. Download the latest firmware update for your model by clicking on the "Download Ver. X.X " link to a location on your computer (we recommend the "Desktop").
    B. If your computer has a media reader, please insert your formatted SD Card from your camera.
    C. Open the zipped firmware file that you downloaded to the desktop.

    D. For"PC" users, locate your SD Card by clicking on, or opening the"My Computer" or"Computer" on your desktop or your"Start" menu. For"Mac" users, can use"Finder" if the drive does not mount to your desktop.

Drag the .bin file from the opened folder to the device that either says Panasonic or mass storage to complete the transfer.

    G."SDXC cards, 32GB or larger, require special card readers. Depending on your PC, and the age of its operating system, you may not be able to directly write to such large cards. If your PC asks you to format the card, DO NOT, this is one indication that your system is not compatible with the newer larger memory cards. In this case a smaller card, 16GB or smaller should be used.
