Released last month (December 2014), Panasonic Lumix with code DMC-CM1 is undoubtedly meant for picture enthusiasts. At the flipside of the smartphone, an obvious lens measures 1-inch in diameter. CM1 closely mirrors a real camera with its complete imitation leather covering its body and its cam lens, plus the metallic brush work in its plastic borders.
Before getting to the camera, let’s get first to CM1’s front screen display. The model exhibits an FHD 4.7-inch face of impressive projection angles with its 469ppi density. Even though CM1 has been secured with Kitkat 4.4.2, its interface has been options-simplified (meaning no extravagant android perks). Hardware specifications include 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 by Qualcomm, 2GB RAM ensuring smooth interaction between device and user.
Here’s the exciting part of Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1: the CAMERA. CM1 is donned with 1-inch Leica lens with F2.8 – F11.0 regulating aperture of 20mega-pixel resolution. If you’re wondering about the lens ring, it is actually made for settings such as ISO, focus, shutter speed and many others. Detailed shots are also made possible by the MOS sensor. Other than snapping shots in RAW format, it can also record 4K videos. A front snapper is also available with a mere 1.1MP resolution.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 is priced for $1,000 which is not a surprise for the device is intentionally for picture enthusiasts—professionals and amateurs alike.
