Panasonic DMC-GH1 with 14-140mm lens


The LUMIX GH1 features the Live View Finder system which enables something that simply is not possible with conventional DSLR cameras – the ability to preview the effects of camera settings (e.g., exposure, aperture, shutter speed) before taking the photo. This helps take the guesswork out of the camera setting process and helps users ensure that every photo they capture comes out exactly as they envisioned.Minimize

The Olympus E-3 also has some of the fasted auto-focus speeds in the industry when used with the company’s new Zuiko Digital lenses and their Supersonic WaveDrive motors. And unlike almost every other DSLR out there, the E-3’s bright 2.5-inch LCD is articulated, allowing for shots even at the most awkward angles.Minimize

Want more vivid or muted Color in your shot? Want warmer or cooler tones? Simply press ok while in iAuto, select Live Guide and press up or down arrows on the back of the camera to slide through all these photographic effects on the LCD and make adjustments before snapping the shot.Minimize
