Panasonic’s GF1, the can-do micro four thirds (M4/3) pocket camera, has been updated. But don’t worry if you’ve just bought one: this isn’t the GF2. Instead, Panasonic has added some new colors to the black, white or red bodies already on sale.
The GF1 now comes in a metallic, candy-colored pink and a steely gray. Both are rather fetching, and the pink would seem to be aimed at quickly cashing in on this Sunday’s celebration of love and 1929 gangland massacres, St Valentine’s Day. If you live in Japan, both models should be available today.
Inside you’ll find the same familiar 12.1MP, half-35mm-sized sensor, hi-def 720p video and sharp LCD screen, and the price will be the same, probably swinging wildly between $800 and over $1000, depending on who is selling it.
