Re: It is combination, not in between

It is not " in-between a DSLR and a superzoom", it "combines a DSLR
and a superzoom". It can use interchangeable lens as a DSLR
(superzoom cannot do it), while it can also take HD video as a
superzoom (most DSLR cannot take video).

It would be a combination if it could do all the things the same as a DSLR and a superzoom. It can't, so it's in between, sharing some features. .

Your 450D cannot take HD video, that is why it is cheaper (as it
incapable to do something that GH1 can do).

If you don't need HD video, then buy a G1. Nobody force you to
ignore G1.

If I recall correctly, the G1 with comparable kit is more expensive than most entrylevel DSLR's.

Both qualitywise and sizewise it's a camera in-between a DSLR and a
superzoom. So it should be priced accordingly. A pricetag about half
of what you are saying would be reasonable. And you can ad € 150,
because it's new technology and than we are talking about a
reasonable affordable camera.

I bought the 450D Canon-kit a few months ago for € 1000,00. No way
this GH1 should me more expensive, unless the picture output is way,
way, way better then the G1, because that was basically just not
impressive for the money. It's a good cam, and amazingly smart
design, but the pricetag is wasy, way off.
