The Panasonic Lumix GM1 seems to be the camera of the moment, but only because photographers are interested to see what kind of job Panasonic has managed to do, considering they have taken the guts from the GX7 and put it into a much smaller body.
The best way to see just how well Panasonic has done with the Lumix GM1 is to pit it against its nearest rival, and that is just what the video review does below. In the video Blunty has pitted the Panasonic Lumix GM1 against the Pentax Q7, which as we know is considered the worlds best and smallest mirorless camera system, so can the GM1 take its crown?
What we like about Blunty’s tests it how he does his best to ensure that it is a level playing field, which means he makes certain that the conditions are the same, as well as settings, or as close as he can that is.
You will see in the Panasonic Lumix GM1 vs. Pentax Q7 video review that the focal lengths are the same, as well as shooting modes, FF FOV equivalent and both in default picture mode, which is standard.
The test also sees both cameras mounted to the same rig, which means that neither camera would suffer the dreaded camera shake. Blunty advises you to set the video to 1080p, select full screen and sit back and enjoy the review of this real-world test
