Panasonic Lumix LF1

 

The latest high-end Lumix compact is all dressed up with nowhere to go.

Like most high-end compact cameras these days, the Lumix LF1 tries hard to carve out its own niche. We've seen many rivals that replicate some parts of its feature set, but none that matches it spec for spec.

Panasonic Lumix LF1

 

The LF1 is comfortably smaller than the Lumix LX7 and employs quite a different shape and style that's more reminiscent of Sony's RX100. The sides curve round like a bar of soap and there's no grip at all on the smooth front surface. A bulge on the...

Genuinely pocketable body ; Built-in electronic viewfinder ; Decent 7.1x zoom range with f2.0 at wide-end ; Built-in Wifi & NFC for wireless control and image transfer

Viewfinder image is small and low resolution ; No 1080p video, only 1080i ; No touchscreen ; No multiple exposures or timelapse mode ; No built-in GPS - have to use app on smartphone

When you first look at the LF1, it's hard not to compare it to the LX7 and quickly discover the older model actually out-features it in a number of respects which many enthusiasts will care about. I've detailed them above, but the more you use the LF1,...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1 offers complete direct photographic controls and a built-in EVF in a body barely larger than an usual ultra-compact. Its dual control-dials, traditional mode-dial and high number of buttons put it among the most efficient...

Excellent balance of details and noise, Low image noise until ISO 400, Very reliable metering, Low optical distortion, Very fast autofocus near wide-angle, Instant shutter-lag, Fast shot-to-shot speed, Smallest camera with built-in EVF, Good build quality

Dim lens slows AF towards telephoto, Below-average Auto White-Balance, Low color accuracy, Poor EVF resolution, Slow optical zoom, 1s Filming delay, 1080i @ 60 FPS, Poor tripod mount placement, Very short battery-life

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1 is a unique compact which provides efficient photographic controls and a built-in EVF in a very small and solid body. Its dual control-dials, traditional mode-dial and viewfinder together make it more pleasing to use than...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1 Review

 

Over the years I’ve owned a number of digicams just like this one and each has been damned useful. Pop in the pocket. Pull it out. Shoot. And enjoy.

Panasonic Lumix LF1

 

A small digital camera with a larger-than-average sensor.

Built-in Wi-fi connectivity ; Wide zoom range ; Good image quality ; Built-in electronic viewfinder

Maximum aperture is a touch slow ; LCD screen could be better ; Slightly muted colours straight out of the camera

Completing the full specification is both Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity. These features allow for the simple transfer of images between the LF1 and either smartphone or tablet, while the Panasonic Image App allows for remote operation of the LF1 through...

Panasonic Lumix LF1 review

 

We first saw the Panasonic Lumix LF1 behind closed doors at a press conference and it got us rather excited. The small size, suitably wide-ranging zoom lens and a built-in electronic viewfinder appeared to be Panasonic's all-in-one - and more budget -...

Small size (particularly considering feature set), lens control ring, built-in viewfinder has its appeal, bright aperture at wide-angle, raw & JPEG, 1/1.7-inch sensor size better than many standard compacts, manual focus and focus-distance indicator

Poor quality viewfinder isn't of much use, limited battery life, lens dips to f/5.9 at 200mm equivalent, stubby lens control ring, pricier than LX7, images a little flat, overexposure common in bright conditions, no touchscreen

The Panasonic Lumix LF1 sounds like a dream on paper, but its wide-ranging feature set overreaches and, therefore, the camera fails to meet its maximum potential. It's got its heart in the right place, but cramming all this tech into the small body...
