Digital Camera Resource Page has reviewed the exciting new Lumix DMC-GH1 camera from Panasonic. I call the camera exciting because it is the first Mirco Four Thirds camera with the ability to record video and the video mode is said to be very interesting.

Some key features for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1:
-14 megapixel sensor
-high-definition video capability (1080i or 720p)
-built-in Dolby Digital Stereo Creator
-face detection
-four different aspect ratios

Digital Camera Resource Page ends up giving the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 camera a very good review as the camera is able to take picture of good quality. The reviewer also enjoyed the video mode which in its own class at the moment as you good image stabilization, continuous autofocus and manual controls while filming. The only downsides are some noise at higher ISO levels, default picture output is a bit soft (you should turn up the sharpening in the camera) and the price is a bit expensive.
Overall the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 seems like a perfect camera if you need the video mode that has a lot of features and possibilities, and you prefer a camera with a bigger sensor than the standard compact camera.
