Hela det här inlägget baseras på en artikel som DPreview skrivit kallad Best DSLRs and ILCs for less than $1000. Vilka är de bästa traditionella digitala systemkamerorna/DSLR och digitala kompakta systemkamerorna/ILC under 7000 SEK?

Först på DPreviews lista kommer en kamera som jag har i min ägo och som jag är mycket förtjust i:

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is an amazing bargain right now, while stocks last.

The rangefinder-styled Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is the most budget-friendly model on this list, available for a mere $250 for the body only. Even bundled with its 14-42mm kit lens ($479.95), the GX1 is cheaper than many high end fixed-lens compacts. That’s not too shabby for a camera touting a 16MP sensor, generous manual controls and full HD video.

One of the benefits of the GX1 is its compact size. Coupled with its stellar image quality, the camera is a dynamite companion for a pro looking for a lot of power in a small frame to keep in an accessible pocket at all times. The GX1 is also well-built and rugged, and is of course compatible with all Panasonic (and Olympus) Micro Four Thirds lenses. Another ergonomic benefit of the GX1 is the camera’s touchscreen interface and rear-mounted command dial.

With a robust set of manual controls, as Panasonic has been known for, great image quality and solid, compact handling, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 is an amazing bargain right now, while stocks last.

GX1 vann TIPA Awards 2012 i klassen Best Advanced Compact System Camera och flera av världens största fotomagasin har hyllat kameran. Bland annat What Digital Camera nedan:
