Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 review

BIOS Magazine has reviewed the Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 and say: “The most critical and annoying problem with digital SLRs with interchangeable lenses is the possibility of dust getting inside the camera during the lens changes, thus contaminating the image sensor. If this happens, professional cleaning is often required. The DMC-L1 effectively manages this problem by incorporating a Supersonic Wave Filter dust reduction, which uses supersonic vibration to instantly shake off dust that might otherwise affect the image.”

DigitalPhotography Review has published a Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 review, and write: “As it turns out while the DMC-L1 shares some components with the E-330 it is going to be very much a Panasonic camera with their own ‘backend’ image processing, features and user interface. The only components shared between the E-330 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 is the lens mount, mirror box, viewfinder assembly (which also includes the AE and AF sensors, see below), SSWF (dust filter) and of course the ‘Live MOS’ sensor which is a Panasonic component (developed in conjunction with Olympus). The camera we saw was an early pre-production unit but was already functioning relatively well in all areas.”
