It’s no secret anymore that I really like the Panasonic Lumix GF1. Configured with a Micro Four Third lens system, this camera is not as heavy as a DSLR, but delivers equally stunning results.

Video on cinematic level

One of the great advantages over the mirror technology of DSLRs: you can use a lens of photographic quality to create video clips. (Thanks to a special mirror flip mode, you can record video with a Nikon D90 too, which is actually a DSLR.)
