LUMIX G1

So far, the architectural photograph has been decided to be the Leica 1935a released in 3.
 It's a camera that Leica is suitable for architectural photography ("leica IIIa / Leica 3aAt the same time), and at the same time, there was no digital camera suitable for architectural photography.

 However, a digital camera suitable for architectural photography has finally been released.
 It is the LUMIX G1 released by Panasonic.
 I wrote an article (LUMIX DMC-TZ series) about the company's TZ series before, but in that, the current digital single-lens reflex camera has a mirror between the lens and the image sensor, so there is no freedom in lens design and it is particularly wide-angle. He described it as a legacy of the past, not suitable for lenses.He wrote that as the direction of future evolution, image processing will be used to supplement the aberrations of color and distortion and the decrease in peripheral illumination, and by increasing the degree of freedom in lens design, the image quality, wide angle, and compactness will be further improved.
 And this is the appearance of LUMIX G1.Its features are summarized below.
XNUMX Because there is no mirror, there is a high degree of freedom in lens design, compact, and no mirror shock
XNUMX Compensation of each aberration by image processing, and overall excellent image quality can be obtained by lens performance + digital processing
XNUMX. Despite the interchangeable lens, real-time distortion correction is performed, and there is no distortion from the live view screen.

 This is exactly in line with the direction I foresaw.The actual image is also good, especially the LUMIX G VARIO 7-14mm is an ultra-wide-angle zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent focal length of 14mm, but there is no distortion and the resolution is excellent.Besides, it is extremely compact and has excellent performance.
 If you need the movie function, you can also choose GH1.It's amazing that you can buy equipment that can shoot ultra-wide-angle movies without distortion at such a price.
