Panasonic has announced the world's first Micro Four Thirds system camera,
the LUMIX DMC-G1, the world's smallest and lightest digital interchangeable
lens camera, weighing in at approximately 385 grams (0.85 lbs). Based on the
new Micro Four Thirds System standard, the LUMIX G1 eliminates the internal
mirror structure that defines digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras, thus
reducing the size and weight by nearly half. With the mirror-less system, the
G1's flange back, which is the distance between the mount and the image
sensor, has been reduced from 40 mm -- as specified in the Four Thirds
System -- to approximately 20 mm.
