The Creative Control lets you enjoy giving your intention to make the image even more impressive.
In addition, the DMC-GX1’s Creative Control Mode enables you to adjust the effect and defocusing area by just moving the slider with your finger.
In the iA Plus Mode and the Creative Control, the range of defocus can be adjusted by just moving the slider with your finger.
You can manually choose from 6 color types to get even more detailed image settings, or to match the shooting situation. In addition, the contrast, sharpness, saturation or noise reduction for each mode parameter can be customized in 5 steps and stored in memory. In Custom Mode, finely customized settings can be stored for easy recall and use.
You can equip the DMC-GX1 with an optional 1,440,000-dot equivalent Live View Finder (LVF) DMW-LVF2 featuring a magnification of approximately 1.4x (0.7x*) and 100% field of view. Because it displays the same information as the LCD, it is effectively used in situations where the LCD is difficult to see, such as under bright sunlight. The LVF is also handy for low-angle shots because it can be tilted vertically from 0 to 90 degrees.

The Scene Mode function lets the camera make the optimal settings for you automatically, so anybody can take superb photos and videos with ease. The Peripheral Defocus Mode for still images automatically adjusts the focus to match the AF area you positioned while gently defocusing the foreground and background to emphasize the subject.
The DMC-GX1 lets you shoot in aspect ratios of 4:3, 3:2, 16:9, and 1:1 mode. The 1:1 mode gives you unique, square-shaped photos. Being able to match the aspect ratio to your subject and shooting intent gives you even greater expression.
Without shading compensation
With shading compensation
The shading function on the DMC-GX1 corrects vignetting to give you clear images with uniform brightness overall.
The Extra Tele Conversion function virtually extends the zoom range when recording images not in the full-size. So you can take telephoto shots even with lenses that don't normally allow zooming. For example, you can take 2x zoom shots (35mm camera equivalent: 56mm) with the LUMIX G 14mm / F2.5 ASPH single focal length lens that comes with the DMC-GX1*.
* When a picture size of [S], 4:3 aspect ratio is selected.
The magnification level differs depending on picture size and aspect ratio setting.
The image has a blown highlight area.
The background, sky and flowers are sharp and vivid.
You can get original image data, recording the image directly from the Live MOS sensor without any image processing. The SILKYPIX® Developer Studio 3.1 SE software utility lets you develop RAW data files. For example, you can develop RAW data to create an image with the effect you were trying to capture when you took the shot. You get high-level basic image processing abilities that give you control over such things as unnatural edges from saturated color borders, false colors in structures with intricate detail, and chromatic noise in photos taken at high sensitivity settings. This utility provides a unique combination of high resolution and extraordinary color separation performance. In addition, the DMC-GX1 allows consecutive shots to be taken at up to 9 fps in RAW format. Shooting continues even while the image data is being stored in memory.
Color space settings for shot images are possible so that the images will be reproduced on computer screens or printed sheets correctly.
The sRGB color space is a standard color space used for a wide variety of applications centering on computers.
• Adobe RGB*
The Adobe RGB color space, which encompasses a wider range of colors than the sRGB color space, is used for photo processing in photo retouch software and professional applications, such as commercial prints.
* Make sRGB settings for usual use, because the Adobe RGB color space cannot be used unless an image processing environment suitable to color profile handling is available.
Full-time Live View on the DMC-GX1 lets anybody use its easy-to-understand and detailed setting functions.
The One Push AE adjusts exposure with a single press of the Fn (Function) button when it is over/under exposure. It is especially useful in shoot in outdoor with open aperture or indoor with fast shutter speed.
The DMC-GX1's 2-axis adjustment feature gives you a finer white balance adjustment for Auto, Daylight, Cloudy, Shade, Incandescent, or Flash conditions. It can also be used when adjusting the Color Temperature Setting or White Set function. You can adjust with a reference to the horizontal axis for amber to blue and the vertical axis for green to magenta*. You can recall the adjustment conditions quickly by pressing the WB button.
* White balance adjustment is not possible in some modes.
The white balance bracket function shoots 3 consecutive photos with slight changes to the white balance setting of each photo in both the horizontal (amber to blue) and vertical (green to magenta) axes, by simply pressing the shutter once.
The Auto Bracket function records several photos at varied exposure levels in a compensation range of ±EV 3 in 1/3 EV, 2/3 EV or 1 EV steps. The DMC-GX1 will record up to 7 images with a single press of the shutter button.
With the DMC-GX1, you can move the guide lines according to the subject's position. This is handy when you want to take extra care in framing, especially when using a tripod.
The histogram display makes it possible to check exposure and contrast in real-time. With the DMC-GX1, you can freely move the histogram to a position where it will not block the subject on the screen.
You can adjust the exposure compensation within a range of ±EV 5 in 1/3 EV steps. In P/A/S Modes, you can retrieve the exposure compensation value and manually adjust it directly.
The camera automatically removes noise generated when taking photos at slow shutter speeds, such as nighttime shooting, always giving you beautiful images.
The maximum sensitivity setting is applied to the Intelligent ISO Control and ISO AUTO functions. This ensures that you'll get the level of image quality you want by letting you set your own limit for ISO sensitivity.
You can set the ISO sensitivity to Auto, Intelligent ISO, 160, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200, 6400 or 12800. When the ISO sensitivity step is set to 1/3 EV, the number of ISO sensitivity setting options increases, allowing you to make fine adjustments and achieve the level of image quality you want.
