If the GF1 is not a DSLR what is it?
Oct 21, 2009

Ok, so the GF1/GH1/G1 don’t have mirrors so they cannot be considered true DSLRs. So what category are they in? When someone asks “Hey what type of camera is that”, what do I say? Is it a pro-sumer? A large sensor compact? A micro 4/3s(Nobody but enthusiasts know what that means)? Or is it just an enthusiast camera?
