Good: Simplicity, portability, quality!
Bad: Cannot do movies :o(
Comment: Being a young amateur photographer, I always borrowed my friend's camera because I was saving for mine.
When the time came for me to buy my own, I came across the G1. For me it was a bit of a gamble given the price but having read about it online, I took the risk.
Well I've got no regrets there, this camera is awesome! The picture quality is superb, the Live viewfinder is every bit as useful as the rest of the features onboard this camera. It is also nice and light, nicely compact too I might add. The battery life is incredible, I am not even thinking about buying a spare for emergency anymore!
In my opinion, the only "minor" detail that lets it down is the fact that it does not take videos. In my case it doesn't really matter as I do not really use the function but I'd imagine it is something the general public would favour on a camera of this price range.
This piece of kit has to be tried to be believed, if you don't mind the lack of video and would rather settle for a lighter, smaller digital camera with a professional feel, the G1 is definitely made for you.
Good: 63mm LCD
Bad: the price is too high
Comment: This great looking digital camera can be used as a PC camera, webcam for online video conference.
