Panasonic’s new Lumix CM1 Smart Camera looks like a Smartphone. It is Smartphone capable of LTE telecommunication with a 2.3 GHz quad-core processor, a SIM card slot and runs on Android 4.4. However the CM1 is a camera with a large-size 1-inch Type 20 MP Live MOS sensor and a Venus image processing engine. The CM1 can capture 4K video and images in RAQ format. The lens is a fixed 28mm equivalent Leica DC lens. At the recent Photokina trade fair in Cologne, Germany, the Lumix CM1 won praises and an award for its surprising image quality, generally associated with much larger dedicated cameras. It will be made available later this year in Germany and France, albeit in limited quantities. There is no decision from Panasonic to make it available in Japan, the USA or any part of Asia.
