Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1 - Wikipedia

As for the thumb side of the grip, the unique position of the power switch would seem to be a boon, but I fear that I will accidentally switch the camera off when Panasonic DMC-L1K Body from vertical to horizontal shooting. It hasn't happened yet because the switch is fairly stiff, but it would. The Command dial, also right next to the thumb, is in good position to be easily activated when making adjustments, but Panasonic DMC-L1K Body can also be accidentally activated too often. With the exception of the highest and lowest shutter speeds, you can set exposure and aperture manually with a dial, just like the old days.


It's Panasonic DMC-L1K Body to see dials with shutter speed and aperture actually marked with real numbers on a camera again. The Aperture dial is released with a rounded button on the left of the lens barrel, as it is on most other lenses with an Automatic setting.

You have to press this button to enter or exit Automatic mode. Set both dials to A, and the camera is in Program mode. Likewise, if you set the Shutter speed dial to Panasonic DMC-L1K Body and move the Aperture dial, you're in Aperture Priority mode.

Take both of them out of Auto, and you're in Manual mode, also reflected on the Status display. The Status display will also confirm what you've set with these dials, so you don't have to constantly check your analog settings, nor look over the camera to verify what you've set on the lens. It's a welcome return to real camera controls, and could attract a lot of photographers used to making physical settings rather than digital ones. Rings and dials are far more tactile. Their use can be learned.

Then it's more muscle memory that Panasonic DMC-L1K Body your settings than your eyes. Aperture was easy to figure with a quick turn left or right to get my bearings. I do miss those days. I like switches for the metering and drive modes, though they change too easily.

I'm not so crazy about Panasonic DMC-L1K Body power switch or shutter button locations. You can also see the Function buttons mentioned later in the review. The dials on the Panasonic L1 very often moved when I didn't want them to, however. Occasionally the Shutter speed dial would move from Auto, or whatever manual setting I'd made, and even the Aperture ring, despite its big locking button, would move from Auto without my permission. It might have been the camera bag that released the lock on the Aperture ring; but the Shutter speed dial is not lockable at all. So don't be surprised if you're suddenly shooting two second exposures with the L1 when you thought you had it in Auto mode two to eight seconds is the first setting when you leave Auto.


I also like the Metering and Drive mode levers that Panasonic DMC-L1K Body from underneath the Shutter speed dial. Though here again, I find that these magically change on their own. The Metering mode lever especially doesn't want to stay in Matrix mode, instead preferring center-weighted.

Maybe it's trying to tell me something. The Panasonic L1's flash is both innovative and frustrating. It's the first on-camera flash to have two modes.
