The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 is the smallest mirrorless digital camera with a Four-Thirds or larger sensor. This incredible camera packs a 16 megapixels  LiveMOS sensor and remains smaller than most premium compacts while providing a similar feature-set. Full manual-controls, including custom white-balance, spot metering, bracketing and manual focus are all there. When paired with Panasonic’s Lumix G 12-32mm F/3.5-5.6 OIS collapsible lens, it makes for a versatile and highly compact package.

This small digital camera offers a 3″ touchscreen LCD with 1 MP to complement its single control-dial body. Still, it manages to pack a reasonable number of buttons and both a traditional mode-dial and focus-dial. Plus, it includes built-in WiFi. The GM1 is in fact surprisingly powerful. Find out why and how much in Neocamera’s full Panasonic GM1 review.

The latest Fuji premium compact, the Fuji X30 has just been reviewed at Neocamera. This evolutionary update in its series brings in an exceptionally large and sharp EVF with 2.8 MP, 0.65X magnification and 100% coverage. It offers a revised control layout with the second control-dial as a ring at the base of the lens barrel, promising improved ergonomics and usability.

This premium digital camera retains the outstanding features of its predecessor. Notably, its bright wide-angle 28-112mm F/2-2.8 lens with mechanical zoom and the 12 MP 2/3″ X-Trans CMOS II sensor with built-in Phase-Detect AF. With already known image-quality and performance, expectations for the Fuji X30 are high. Read the review to find out how it ultimately performs.

Nikon D810

Nikon recently unveiled their newest digital camera, the D810 which replaces the D800E and D800 twins. They have taken the no anti-alias filter route and provided it with completely upgraded internals:

  • A new 36 megapixels CMOS sensor with base sensitivity of ISO 64, expandable down to 32. The normal sensitivity range reach ISO 12,800 and expands to 51,200.
  • An EXPEED 4 processor with unprecedented image-parameters for finer control over image rendition than any other digital camera.
  • A revised shutter and mirror mechanism to reduce vibrations. The D810 can sustain 5 FPS continuous shooting with a deeper buffer than its predecessor.

Many more processing and capabilities have been refined too. Read Neocamera’s Nikon D810 review to see what it can do.
