Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 review

This camera replaced a Canon 30D with "L-Glass". I trust the camera enough to shoot a wedding reception with an off camera Flash. My initial attempts at video are encouraging. It's a whole new ball game shooting video with a DSLR-like camera body. A tripod is nearly a must. For stills, in camera distortion correction is outstanding DXO applies very little correction to the output.

Problems:

Every so often a message pops up that the camera does not recognize the kit lens. Otherwise, it's a joy to use.
