Back in 2012, I wrote about how I was on a journey to learn to take insanely great pictures, and I was taking that journey using the Lumix GX1 camera, which I love. It's got much of a DSLR's quality, but with the much smaller form factor of a point and shoot camera. And like photographers like to say, "the best camera is the one you have with you" to get the shot, so a smaller camera like the GX1 beats out a bulky DSLR any day of the week for me, because I carry it in my bag all of the time. I've captured many spur of the moment shots that way, like this one celebrating 5 years of an employee working at our company, which only happened because I happened to have the camera with me:
I've also taken some fantastic photos with the GX1. Here's a link to my favorites and here's one of them:
So as you can imagine, I was very interested to learn about the successor to the GX1, a recently-released camera called the GX7.
