Panasonic LF1 camera packs NFC and electric viewfinder in compact shell
While the smallest size in the compact camera race is always the winner, there is constant talk of how interesting it would be to also offer ease of use. To some extent we believe the Panasonic LF1 is just the right pick for those who like their cameras to be low on size but high on specs. It arrives with a modest 12-megapixel, 1/1.7-inch sensor that makes it a good point and shoot companion. The 28-200mm-equivalent F2.0-5.9 lens offers 7.1x zoom by compromising a nice, bright aperture. The LF1 also offers NFC, Wi-Fi connectivity, an integrated electronic viewfinder and manages to fit snuggly between the Canon S110 and the Sony RX100.
The Panasonic LF1 would set you back by $500. It also happens to be that Panasonic have dished out the Lumix G6, which arrives as a lower-end mirrorless camera. The availability on the latter is yet in question.
