Panasonic CM1 – 1″ Sensor Android Phone Coming to UK
About two months back I wrote an article on the up-coming Panasonic CM1. The CM1 has a 1″ Sony sensor, which is actually the same sensor they use in the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 and is 7x larger than your typical well regarded smartphone sensor.
The lens is Leica-branded f2.8 and provides a 28mm focal length. The phone has a control ring which allows you to adjust ISO, shutter speeds, aperture and white balance.
The CM1 will also give you the option to save in Raw or jpg and can record 4k video.
Initially it was only France and Germany which received the CM1 for retail sale, but Panasonic has stated there is such ‘high demand’ for the CM1 and will be releasing it retail via a limited number of camera stores in the UK beginning December 1st.
It’s not going to be cheap though. The currently quoted price is £899.
From the Panasonic press release:
The CM1s will be available online through Panasonic Direct as well as opportunities to buy through selected retailers. Ensuring a good geographical coverage, the CM1 will be available at the following retailers from 1st December.
- Jessops, Oxford St, London.
- Dixons, Harrods, London
- Wilkinson Cameras, Liverpool
- Park Cameras, Burgess Hill,
- Panasonic Store, Plymouth
- John Lewis, Edinburgh*
- Dixons Travel, Heathrow Airport, Terminal 5
As part of the initial launch in the UK, consumers will need to fill in a short questionnaire prior to purchasing the camera. The premium compact camera will be sold on a first come, first served basis.https://gizbeat.com/5987/panasonic-cm1-1-sensor-android-phone-coming-to-uk/https://gizbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/DMC-CM1_Spec_WOC_20140915_copy-450x336.jpeghttps://gizbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/DMC-CM1_Spec_WOC_20140915_copy-150x150.jpegCamerasRecentAbout two months back I wrote an article on the up-coming Panasonic CM1.
