GH1: How many of you need EVF?
Apr 18, 2009

A key reason for Panasonic to argue that they have to sale GH1 for a high price is due to the high resolution EVF could cost even more than a pentaprism. With glasses, I know the chance for me to use EVF is very few. Even I had a good naked eye sight, I think I will not use EVF anyway.

Can I suggest Panasonic develop a "simple" version of GH1 with consumer friendly price?
1, remove EVF

2, enlarge the internal flash to 13GN or even more, so the user need not have to buy an extra flash gun, and it reduce the portability if the user has to bring the bulky external flash. (what's the point to design the DC so small?)
3, Use 4x AA size battery. (Chipped battery, no)
4, Price with the kit lens (14-140) around 800 US$

I believe it will be a big sale.
