REVIEW  /  06 Nov 2013

The E-P5 represents such a significant upgrade over the two-year old E-P3 that it’s better to think of it as a reboot rather than an update. But while many things are massively improved, some are still stuck in time. Find out which in our review.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 review

Panasonic Lumix GX7 Review: A Perfect 10

REVIEW  /  27 Sep 2013

Panasonic's latest mirrorless system camera, the GX7, comes with one neat trick - it has a built-in live viewfinder that tilts up to 90 degrees. The camera also comes with built-in image stabilization - a first for Panasonic's Micro Four Thirds cameras. Is this lucky number seven a winner?

Unlike anything out in the market, the Panasonic Lumix CM1 is designed to be the slimmest camera possible that also functions as a smartphone. Quite the opposite of most other competing devices. What's even more impressive is that it manages to cram a 1-inch sensor with a wide-angle Leica lens. We managed to sneak a quick walkthrough of the smart camera phone before it hits retail!
