The upcoming Lumix DMC-G1 is a proper SLR, only engineered using some kind of shrink-ray technology (the new Micro Four Thirds system) to make it 27 percent smaller than existing SLRs, like the Lumix DMC-L10.
Plus it only weighs 385 grams – the equivalent of 10 four-finger Kit Kats, and manages to pull off 12.1megapixels. Here’s what it looks like. And yes, there is a pink one for the ladies.
The halfway-house DMC-G1 is down for an October 31 launch in Japan, with the rest of the developed world getting it a few weeks later. The Japanese price is 90,000 yen, which works out as $840. Which works out as £477. Which probably works out as £599 over here, officially, we’d imagine.
