Panasonic Lumix GH1 Digital Camera

Panasonic Lumix GH1

Price: $1499

If you want DSLR features and image quality but you don’t want to pay the size and weight penalty, the Panasonic Lumix GH1 might be your camera. The GH1 is a Micro Four Thirds format camera, which means it has changeable lenses and a DSLR sensor in a smaller, lighter body. It also has excellent video capability – the GH1 has 1080p HD video with fully working auto focus (currently, all DSLRs with video have limited auto focus functionality). The GH1 comes with a 10x image-stabilized zoom lens that was specially designed for silent zooming and focusing so it won’t add distracting sounds during filming. For mountain bikers that want to capture pro-quality still shots and video on the trail, the Panasonic GH1 is the best all-purpose camera currently available.
