Panasonic DMC-GX1 compact system camera


Re: Genuine Question Time(!)

Hi, Yes I do find it much more compact, especially if you use the 20mm pancake lens, I don’t have it but I did try it and I could fit the camera in the back pocket of my jeans without a struggle, even with the normal 14-42mm lens it still fits in my jacket pocket fine. The best thing for me though is if you’re walking the streets you can hold it in your hand discreetly without people really noticing it, I tried that with my Nikon DSLR and some guy attacked me for it.

The biggest annoyance for me is the cost of the EVF as an addition, (if thats what you prefer) it doesnt use the same one as the other Panasonic models so you cant upgrade and keep your old one and there arent any second hand ones around yet.


I bought one of these as a step down from a DSLR as i wanted something more compact and easier to travel with, really good camera once you find your way round the menu's, lenses can be a bit pricey though.

Samsung Series 9 900X3A laptop


I got one of the first ones out a few months back and although it shipped with a software bug it is now one of the best laptops i have had (had a lot and my last one was the samsung x460). I find the screen res fine for the size and the lack of ports hasnt been an issue for me, most things i leave on my desk connected via a USB hub anyway. Very quick and great screen.

When comparing it to Macbook Airs you must remeber that this laptop came out prior to the latest Macbook Air revision and at the time was better spec than the Air.
