Pansonic has added another camera to their Lumix line of products.  The new camera is called the Lumix DMC-GF1.  The DMC-GF1 supposedly is the world’s smallest and lightest digital camera with built-in flash.  The camera uses the micro four thirds system as well.

The DMC-GF1 can record HD video at 720p resolution in an AVCHD Lite format.  The camera can also record at lower resolutions too.  The GF1 has a 3″ rear LCD with 460K dot resolution and Live View.  The camera sensor has a 12 megapixel resolution with a fast autofocus system.  Panasonic will be shipping this camera in October at a price of about $899.95 with two kits.

One of the kits will have a Lumix G  20mm/F1.7 ASPH pancake lens.  The other kit will have a Lumix G Vario 14-45mm/F3.5-5.6ASPH/MEGA OIS lens.
