THROUGH THE LENS—THE LUMIX GM1 CAMERA

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the launch of Panasonic's new camera - the Lumix GM1. I already had my eye on this camera (I'm a little camera obsessed) so you could imagine how thrilled I was to be invited to a beautiful high tea with the team to learn about its features. Ever since then I've taken it with me everywhere!Lumix GM1 cameraLumix GM1 cameraLumix GM1 camera

It's about the size of a playing card (nice and compact!) but doesn't compromise on image quality - it's 16 megapixels and has 1080p HD video recording. It also has a touch LCD screen, creative filters, interchangeable lens (with a 12-32mm kit lens) and even has wifi, making uploading all your photos to social media a breeze!The retro body in black and silver is my favourite combo; it also comes in tan/silver, white/silver and all black. I've added my old tan leather wrist strap to it while I wait for a new neck strap that I ordered to arrive in the mail, it's those little things that just complete the look! I couldn't think of anything more perfect to keep in hand when I don't want to lug around my SLR, especially when I'm on the road and exploring the world. This is the kind of camera I've been waiting for - compact yet still able to provide excellent image quality & stylish - it's got that old school look I love. So happy to take it on my upcoming travels!
