Panasonic DMC-LF1 - A Pocket-size Premium Compact Digital Camera with High Image Quality and the Joy of Composing Shots
The LF1 is a pocket-sized compact digital camera that includes a large 12.1-megapixel MOS sensor and a built-in Electronic View Finder. The sleek design includes a F2.0 Leica lens with a 7x zoom range from 28 to 200mm (equivalent) focal length. Wi-Fi connectivity is also supported allowing photos to easily be shared to social networking sites or across your home network.
New Large 12.1 Megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor
Larger than the sensor used in conventional compact digital cameras, this new 12.1 megapixel type on-board the LF1, offers a larger light-receiving area. This results in beautiful low-noise photos, even in dimly lit situations.
Bright and Fast F2.0 Leica DC VARIO-SUMMICRON Lens
The newly developed super bright F2.0 LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON lens minimises distortion for stunning, true-to-life images with outstanding resolution and detail. The wide aperture F2.0 performance makes the best of low light situations or when shooting indoors without a flash. Faster shutter speeds can be used which result in sharper images when movement is involved. It also provides a shallow depth of focus for those professional looking blurred background type shots.
Powerful 7.1x Optical Zoom Lens
The LF1 offers a focal range of 28-200mm in 35mm equivalent terms. This means a very useful 7.1x zoom ratio, allowing you to zoom closer to your subjects when it's not possible for you to move closer.
Power O.I.S. with Active Mode for Video
Power O.I.S. is about twice as effective as our conventional system at reducing low-frequency vibration-caused blur. It is especially useful when using slow shutter effects or shooting night scenes. With the option of Active mode available during movie recording, videoing from a moving vehicle or while walking is also more precise.
Control Ring for Direct, Intuitive Operation
A knurled Control Ring on the lens barrel provides smoother control of the aperture, shutter speed and zoom, leaving your right hand to concentrate on shutter operation.
10 Frames per Second High Speed Burst Shooting
High-speed burst shooting, up to 10 frames per second at full resolution, is possible. This enables you to capture high speed action with a sequence of still pictures that are sharp and defined, even when it is difficult to keep the subject in the centre of the frame. You can review the images after you have captured the action and choose the best composed shot.
Ease of Use
920k Pixels, 3.0 Inch, Wide Viewing Angle LCD Screen
A high resolution (920,000 pixels) Liquid Crystal Display is offered with a 3.0 inch viewing area that works well in bright light due to the Auto Brightness sensor that automatically increases brightness by up to 40% when in sunny conditions. The wide viewing angle also means a number of people can review the pictures at the same time.
Composition Guide to Aid Taking the Shot
To help compose your shot, five composition example photos are included with guidelines that show how the shot was composed. This is a handy learning tool that will help you take better photos.
Enhanced Shooting Assist Function - Level Gauge
A handy Level Gauge is provided on the display that helps you to correctly align the camera. Whether shooting in a landscape or portrait orientation, the camera's internal gyro sensor always knows the angle of the camera and displays guide lines on screen to help you hold the camera level.
iA (Intelligent Auto) Shooting Mode with iA Plus
iA mode has been a highly appreciated feature of all Lumix models as it helps you take the picture without you having to worry about what settings to use. The camera intelligently works out the type of scene that you are trying to capture from a number of pre-set programmes. iA+ allows you to add an element of your own creative control where you can experiment with the overall look of the shot before you take the picture. New for 2013 is the "Meal Mode" which automatically recognises when you are taking a picture of plated food and optimises the settings accordingly.
Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC for Easy Set-up and Sharing
Amazing new wireless functionality is now possible with this Lumix model. Features like: Remote Monitor and Shooting, Remote Browsing & Playback and Remote Sharing. Additional NFC (Near Field Communication) capability built in to this model utilises the latest smart communication technology. NFC compatible products can share or be ready to share data just by touching the two devices or bringing them close together.
Remote Monitoring and Control with Smartphone
Use your Smartphone to see the live image through the camera lens and then take the shot. Using the "Peer to Peer" or Wi-Fi function in the camera, the picture can be monitored externally and controlled remotely by a connected smart device (controlling device requires Panasonic Image App for iOS/Android smartphones).
Remotely Browse, Playback, Transfer or Print via DLNA and Wi-Fi compatible devices
If you have a compatible DLNA equipped smart TV or handheld device, you can browse and view your pictures directly over your wireless network. This means you no longer need to connect to the TV with the AV cable or even take out the SD card and insert it in the TV. The Wi-Fi function also allows you to transfer and back-up your pictures, and if you have a Wi-Fi printer, you can even print them wirelessly.
Remote Sharing - Social Network Site (SNS) File Upload over Cloud Network
Not only can you enjoy videos and still pictures remotely on your Smartphone*, but you can also upload the content directly to your favourite Social Network sites like YouTube and Facebook. Now it's even easier to share your movies or photos with friends.
* Requires Panasonic Image App for iOS/Android smartphones.
Creative Shooting Controls
Extensive Creative Effects for Recording
Any one of 15 creative filter effects can be selected before taking your shot. These effects: Expressive, Retro, High Key, Sepia, High Dynamic, Miniature effect, Toy Effect, Low Key, Star Filter, One-point Colour, Dynamic Monochrome, Soft Focus, Impressive Art, Cross Process and newly added Old Days gives you the expressive power to turn ordinary situations into highly special scenes.
Creative Panorama Shooting Mode with Filter Effects
In addition to the Panorama shooting mode that allows you to capture ultra-wide vistas in a single image, up to 13 filter effects can also be applied to your shot.
FULL HD Video Mode with AVCHD Recording
When shooting video for playback on a Full HD TV, AVCHD 1080 offers amazing high quality recording. Video captured on the camera's SD card can be played back directly on a Panasonic Viera Full HD TV by putting the card in the SD slot on the TV.
Stereo Sound Recording
A built-in stereo microphone means high quality Dolby encoded stereo sound can be recorded when using movie mode.

The picture is very good and matches the Canon in most respects and beats the Canon in low light handheld shots without flash . These are truly amazing (especially if you use raw where the finest details are preserved) with lifelike colours and no blur. The image stablilisation is a winner. The flash photos come out nice too, although colours not completely true to the original. Outdoor shots very sharp and the lens quality really shines.
Video cannot match a dedicated camcorder, but better than average for a camera. There is some judder but sound is pretty good. The extra zoom is useful here.
The main criticism I have is that the power button and the shutter button are right next to each other. I have at times inadvertently shut down the camera when I meant to take a shot! The battery life is not great but you can always get a spare battery for not much outlay.
This may not quite match the likes of RX100 but it is cheaper, has a built in viewfinder, and is even more pocketable. The zoom is considerably more versatile. The camera is highly rated by Consumers' Association in the UK and US.
Picture quality - Excellent, more than adequate for an A3 enlargement, all I'll every need.
Single lens with 24 to 400mm zoom range - Achieving this optically involves unacceptable compromises in quality. I therefore ruled out all super zoom cameras. The LF1, however, offers panorama stitching which can be used to achieve an effective wider angle. At the high end, the intelligent zoom seamlessly transitions to digital zoom using the control ring.
Creative control - Lots of options including soft focus, low key, high key, black and white, manual focus, focal point selection etc.
Power features - Automated HDR image combination for high-contrast shots, panorama stitching....and many more.
Good low light performance - Excellent. Flash rarely looks good but I don't need it.
Video - Excellent. Nice to have a dedicated button.
Fast power on - Almost instant.
Good display - Excellent.
Viewfinder - Somewhat disappointing but more than adequate. Rarely found in a compact camera.
Nice ergonomics - Would prefer the size, grips etc. of an SLR but this is offset by the compactness.
Overall, it has to be 5 stars given the price. Delighted with it.
I prefer cameras with larger sensors but if you want a good pocket camera at a sensible price, this has a great deal going for it. It is the best point and shoot camera I have tried but it also has a good degree of adjustment/flexibility for more demanding situations. It is not the best I have tried contre-jour but the absence of re-eye means that you can confidently use fill-in flash outdoors and get an even better picture.
There are pocket cameras that beat this but they are all a lot more expensive. In fairness to those other cameras I can only give this one 4 stars. Value for money is easily 5 stars.
I can hold it comfortably in the palm of my hand or in my shirt pocket. It has a range of 28 -200. Crucially, it has an EVF which makes composing photographs much less of a hit-and-miss affair. It takes perfect video. What else do you want?
At £164, it was an absolute steal.
Having said all that it seems a lovely little camera but all the tecky bits are too much without a handy easy to read manual - one day I will get the hang of it no doubt. There seems to be an assumption that we all know what the letters DISP mean?? I just wanted a point and click with a view finder.....
