Panasonic GM1

PetaPixel: The Panasonic GM1 is the smallest Micro Four Thirds camera, and is even smaller than the Sony RX100. I’m assuming that’s just the GM1 body without a lens, but that’s still quite impressive considering the RX100 is pocketable.

I used to get excited about mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras getting smaller and more capable—I own a NEX-5—but I think the future in portable cameras isn’t a camera at all. The future of small, portable cameras is the smartphone, like the iPhone 5s.

Everyone living and working in the modern world will eventually need a smartphone and for most the smartphone camera will be more than good enough, with features we want to and can actually use like 10fps and slo-mo.
