BiosMagazine has a firet impression review on the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1, a 7.50 megapixel digital SLR camera with 2.5″ LCD Screen, a Supersonic Wave Filter, and the new Live MOS sensor which enables you for framing of shots without the need to look through the view finder.
“The heart of a digital SLR is the mirror box unit, which integrates a quick-return mirror, viewfinder, and AE sensor. This, combined with the full-time image output function of the Live MOS sensor, achieves a full-time Live View function that displays the image on the LCD directly from the sensor signal. This incredibly useful function can be selected in both Auto Focus and Manual Focus modes. “
