Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 Smartcam Review

 

Online premium camera. Panasonic's Lumix DMC-CM1 is actually more of a camera with integrated smartphone since the device looks like a compact camera just from its outsides. However, it also has plenty of mobile power with a Full HD screen, LTE, and a...

Superb camera, Swift SoC, LTE with wide frequency coverage, Expandable storage, Decent build, Good connectivity, Full HD screen

that could be a bit brighter, Temperature development, Battery life, Ultra HD videos only with 15 fps

Panasonic's Lumix DMC-CM1 has a very good camera that is rounded off well with the integrated smartphone. The Full HD screen could surely be a bit brighter but makes a good impression otherwise. High-speed LTE and other, modern transmission standards...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 (Unlocked)

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 is a peerless smartphone when it comes to imaging, but photographers willing to carry two devices can find a better pocket camera for less money.

Best smartphone camera available. Runs stock Android 4.4. 1-inch image sensor with 28mm f/2.8 prime lens. Captures JPG and Raw images. Lens control ring. 4G LTE connectivity on AT&T and T-Mobile. Android Lollipop upgrade available

Expensive. 4K video limited to 15fps. Weak LED flash. Thicker than most smartphones. Screen could be brighter. So-so call quality

There have been a number of attempts at making a smartphone that takes better pictures than a dedicated digital camera, but most have failed on one level or another. Nokia tried to push its PureView technology with the Lumia 808 and the Lumia 1020, but...

Panasonic Lumix CM1

 

Photographers, say hello to your next phone.

The Panasonic Lumix CM1 has a huge image sensor that helps it capture stunning photos, it shoots images in raw format, it's well-built, looks great and has the internal specs to rival most top-end smartphones.

It's far from cheap, it's running an older version of Android, it's quite bulky for everyday use and its raw format images can't be used with most Android apps.

While the Panasonic Lumix CM1 is undeniably pricey and bulky, its wealth of photography kit helps it achieve image quality that's unrivalled in the smartphone world. If you love the idea of always having a great camera to hand but don't want to be...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 is a 20 megapixel smartphone with a fixed 28mm f/2.8 Leica lens. Running Android 4.4.4 with Wi-Fi, NFC and 3G/4G connectivity, the Panasonic CM1 camera/smartphone features a large 1-inch MOS sensor and is capable of 4K video...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 is a brave and largely successful attempt to bring together the best features of a smartphone and a camera into one unified device, but a few niggles, late introduction to the market and the high price-tag may consign it to...

Panasonic CM1 Review

 

First announced at Photokina 2014 for the French, German and then UK markets only, the Panasonic CM1 -- a rather ambitious combination of smartphone and dedicated, large-sensor compact digital camera -- is making its way to the US market later this...

Now, for me personally, I've always enjoyed the more traditional shooting experience with a camera that offers a more substantial grip, a viewfinder of some kind, the versatility of interchangeable lenses and, perhaps most importantly, as large a...

Panasonic CM1 Review: Finally, a High End Camera Inside a Smartphone

 

Most people are perfectly satisfied with the camera in their smartphone. But to photographers and hobbyists, even the latest iPhone doesn't come close to emulating the capability of a full-fledged camera. Panasonic's CM1 is the answer.

Objects of Desire: Panasonic Lumix CM1

 

The CM1 is an Android-based smartphone with a 1-inch, 20-megapixel CMOS sensor and a 28mm f/2.8 Zeiss lens.

. Like Samsung’s Galaxy Camera, the CM1 fuses an Android smartphone with some serious photography parts. How serious? How about a 1-inch, 20-megapixel CMOS sensor (the same one found in the company’s FZ1000 camera) and a huge upgrade from the tiny...

Panasonic Lumix CM1 Hands On

 

The Panasonic Lumix CM1 is one interesting product. It's a 20.1-megapixel Panasonic Lumix camera with a 1-inch sensor and Venus Processing Engine, but it's also a 4.7-inch Android smartphone running a Snapdragon 801 chip, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.4.4...

When the Panasonic Lumix CM1 will be launched, it will be available with full LTE support. As of this writing, there has been no carrier announcements made. But it will be sold at $1000 off contract.

Panasonic CM1 review

 

Panasonic says the CM1 is a camera with a phone, not a phone with a camera – and we can see why

Large 20-megapixel 1-inch sensor ; Full manual control ; Android 4.4 and 2GB memory

No zoom lens ; Tricky to hold securely ; Expensive

The Panasonic CM1 is impressive, even judged solely as a camera. Who wouldn't want a high-end compact with a 1-inch sensor that will go in a shirt pocket? On top of that, it's a decent Android smartphone too.
