Panasonic Lumix CM1

Panasonic’s Lumix CM1 is an Android smartphone with a rather special camera: unlike the tiny sensors employed by most smartphones, the CM1 boasts a 1in sensor with 20 Megapixels, the same chip found in Sony’s RX100 series. The larger sensor area allows the CM1 to capture images with lower noise and broader dynamic range than most smartphones under the same conditions.Panasonic’s coupled the big sensor with a fixed 28mm equivalent f2.8 lens with a tactile ring control for adjusting settings like the aperture. Indeed the CM1 offers a richer photographic experience than most smartphones with full exposure control and support for RAW files. Amazingly this is all squeezed into a body measuring 135x68x21.1mm (15.2mm at its thinnest point), making it roughly similar in size to a Galaxy S4, and only a little thicker.As a smartphone, it sports a 4.7in LCD display, a 2.3GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the usual array of radios including support for LTE, and Android 4.4 Kitkat running the show. Like many I’ve been intrigued by the CM1 since its announcement, so have put together a page of sample images for you to peruse. I’ll add some comparisons and usability comments later!
