Features & Controls (cont.)

Both the G1 and GH1 have built-in electronic view finders, which has been taken off of the new GF1, but not forgotten. Here you can see the connection that allows you to attach the optional EVF, which sits on the camera's hot shoe. The EVF is not an included accessory but can be be purchased from Panasonic.


The I/O ports are on the left side. At the top is the optional DMW-RSL1 (approx. $79) remote shutter release socket. Next is the MiniHDMI Type C I/O port for full HD output. Last we have the combination port on the bottom that handles both standard definition A/V OUT (user- selectable NTSC or PAL) for output to a TV as well as USB 2.0 (high-speed) connectivity for transferring image data to the host computer.

The GF1 stores all of its images and videos on SD and SDHC memory cards. The charts below show the number of images or videos that can be captured on cards ranging from 32MB to 32GB. Shown here is a SanDisk Ultra II, 15MB/s, 4GB SDHC card.


Powering the GF1 is a 7.2V, 1250mAh rechargeable Li-Ion battery. Panasonic claims that this battery is capable of capturing 380 images or record 190 minutes of video on a single charge, based on CIPA regulations.
