Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 review

Recently had a chance to use this camera and found getting used to it, especially the menus and Electric View Finder (EVF) to be a bit perplexing. Difficult to find my way around the various menus. The camera appears to have alot of potential, but actually shooting and bringing out that potential is easier said than done. When you are used to a standard DSLR, this piece of equipment was quite challenging.


1. The EVF makes accurately determining + or - Exp. Comp. a bit difficult. Although you can see the differences in EC as you change in either directiion it's hard to tell their effect accurately.
2. As it turned out, focusing accurately was apparently a problem for me. No problem feeling confident of focus lookin through the EVF, but when I printed the images, most were out of focus at infinity. Don't know exactly why at this point. I think I probably set up the focusing wrong.
