It features the same 16 megapixel Live MOS sensor as the much larger GX7, and also sports a 3-inch touchscreen LCD, a wide selection of manual controls and creative features, 1080/60i movie recording, and built-in Wi-Fi.

The GM1 offers many of the features and image quality of its Lumix GX7 sibling in a much smaller, lighter package. A few concessions have been made to reduce the size so drastically, namely a lower-capacity battery, but it's an excellent option for casual shooting.
Good for: Street shooting, casual portraits, moderately low light.
Not so good for: Fast action, telephoto shooting, very low light.
