Panasonic GM1 specs include GX7 image sensor and processor

New Panasonic GM1 specs have been leaked in light of the Micro Four Thirds camera’s October 17 announcement.

One of the most discussed cameras of recent times is the Panasonic GM1. It should become the smallest Micro Four Thirds shooter in the world.

The ultra-compact camera will be even tinier than the already diminutive GF3 and it will do so on October 17 during a special launch event.

Less than 24 hours ago, it has been revealed that the camera will be launched on that date. Furthermore, a recent report has confirmed that the shooter will come packed with a hybrid shutter instead of an electronic one, as previously expected.

Thankfully, the rumor mill is back with new information regarding this camera, as we have only seen scarce details leaked so far.

GX7
Panasonic GX7 will lend its 16-megapixel sensor and Venus processor to the ultra-compact GM1.

According to new information, the Panasonic GM1 specs will include the same processor and image sensor of the high-end GX7.

The GX7 is powered by the Venus engine, while its sensor consists of a brand new 16-megapixel Live MOS model with 25% improved Signal-to-Noise ratio, 10% enhanced sensitivity, and 10% superior saturation.

The GM1 will also borrow the build quality of the GX7, which is great news for photographers, especially considering the fact that this should be a lower-end and cheaper camera.

Built-in WiFi and touchscreen for Panasonic GM1 users

Panasonic GM1’s specifications sheet continues with integrated WiFi, allowing users to easily transfer content to a smartphone or tablet.

Furthermore, the Micro Four Thirds system has a touchscreen, which will also work in Live View mode, while providing access to the menu and exposure settings.

LF1
Panasonic GM1 is rumored to be as tiny as the LF1, a compact camera with a fixed lens about the size of the Sony RX100.

Although the body has the same quality as the GX7, the GM1 is actually a very tiny shooter. It appears that the design and size are inspired by the LF1.

The camera will be as compact as the Panasonic LF1, though the Sony RX100 measurements are not so far off, the source says.

14mm f/2.5 lens
Panasonic’s upcoming 12-32mm pancake lens is said to be as small as the 14mm f/2.5 optic.

On the other hand, the 12-32mm lens is as tiny as the 14mm f/2.5 lens and it will be offered as a kit optic.

This confirms that the GM1 and the 12-32mm lens will be the first truly pocketable Micro Four Thirds combination.

In the meantime, Amazon is offering the 14mm f/2.5 lens for $322.95, while the LF1 compact camera is available for $429.95.
