Although all the GF1 samples we have evaluated have been pre-production units of varying versions, Panasonic was confident enough to let us use their latest pre-production release camera to produce sample images and video for publication in full. We have a JPEG stills gallery of over 30 shots, plus several GF1 HD video clips for you to sample.

Our thumbnail gallery of the sample stills is below. On page 2 of this article you can play our sample videos, hosted in YouTube, in HD.
