Summary

The G100 is an interesting little camera. Like Sony's recent ZV-1 it feels like Panasonic has tried to rummage around in its parts bins to see what it would take to turn the GM or GF cameras into something that would appeal to vloggers.

This should be a relatively easy win, given the company's expertise in video, especially when combined with the audio cleverness from Nokia. However, the result feels slightly undercooked.

It can take some lovely stills and in many respects is a well-specced, usefully compact camera. But our initial impression of its vlogging capabilities are, mixed, to say the least. We'll be shooting a lot more with the G100 in the coming weeks and we'll see whether the large viewfinder and bright rear LCD make up for the things it doesn't seem to quite get right.
