Panasonic Lumix Launch in Malaysia 2011

Posted by Joshua |

On 19th Panasonic has launched its latest premium line of Compact Micro System Camera, LUMIX DMC-GX1 at Sunway Resort. I was lucky enough to be invited to witness the great launch event by Panasonic Malaysia.



There were 5 new products of Panasonic LUMIX were introduced and the Panasonic LUMIX-GX1 that caught my eye.




You can now own a compact camera that able to output great image quality equally with DSLR. It has a large 16 megapixel sensor with a maximum ISO up to 12,800. Now you will have no problem to shoot great photo in low light environments.

It uses a Micro Four Thirds mount which is compatible with both Panasonic and Olympus lenses having it much more variants lenses to choice including power zoom X, telephoto zoom, single focal length, wide-angle, fish-eye, macro and more.



The autofocus is remarkable fast at 0.09 second speed by simply touching the subject on the 3-inch (460k) touchscreen. Besides shooting great images it can also record 1080/60i Full-High Definition video with full-time AF in MP4 or AVCHD that can be playback on PC or other portable electronic devices without a need for conversion.

It has these two modes of cool features; Creative Control and Photo Style that let users capture precisely true-to-life images and create their own beautifully expression images.

I love the hand grip of the GX1 which I found it’s ergonomically to hold and fast auto-focus.

Ok! Enough with all the tech talk, let show you some hot babes. :P

The event was showered with 60 Miss Tourism International around the globe catwalk and posing with the new LUMIX cameras.



It’s because I’ve only attend the night event, the guests and bloggers (ME) are invited to joined a grand dinner with Ms. Tourism. YES! You heard me right!



Not eating on our own table and the Ms. Tourism has theirs’ own. I had dinner with Ms. Ukraine one on one. Don’t play play ya!



Meet Ms. Jane, she’s working in a legal firm back in her country. Although there was a little communication barrier but we manage to have some chit chat. :P



There was a voting of Ms. Photogenic carried out that night and all the guests are given a ballot to cast vote for theirs favourite Ms. Photogenic.

Ms. Czech Republic received the most votes by the crowd and crowned as Ms. Photogenic of that event.



Seriously I found Ms. Belarus much more photogenic. Just in my humble opinion.
